No kidding, that would be great. I must have 8 jerseys in my closet, but alas, no Coyotes. I wonder if a Winnipeg Jets jersey would count.

Where you from in Ontario, raftermania? Also, kudos on the name, Rafter was my favorite.

Zen Tennis Student? You've read The Inner Game of Tennis no doubt right?

I was in Toronto this summer and I loved it. Great area. And I finally got to see the hockey hall of fame! I made sure I picked up a Leafs jersey before I left to remember the city by... that, and I miss having Belfour on the Stars.

Actually, I've never read that book. I do tend to read a lot of books involving meditation and the like, though. I've had a lot of success using visualization techniques with tennis, as well as incoperating calm breathing and perspectives. It all sounds kinda dorky, but I swear there are great benefits. A lot of the high school girls I've worked with have a million things going on in their lives, that sometimes practicing tennis (especially when it's not going as they'd like) is a real chore. So when I explain a few simple breathing ideas and a little mental gameplan, it goes a long way. That's far more than you asked for, but I think it clears up my name. =)

What's the story behind that book?

Yeah, you'll love "The Inner Game of Tennis" then. The writer, Tim Gallewey (sp?) got his inspiration from a zen book on archery. The basic premise is to allow your body to play "automatically" without forcing anything. Definitely worth a read, it's been in publication for a while now and you can probably find a copy of it at your local library. Billie Jean King called it her "Tennis Bible" which says a lot.

I'm sure you are pooing your pants over this pathetic NHL lockout and the recent cancellation. It's really bad up here, these dang Canadian sports channels cover nothing but the latest revelations of the talks and conferences.

It was my first time at the hall of fame last year too. The amount of jerseys they have there is absurb. The funniest one was the Middle Eastern team, the Dubai Camels. Also, seeing the Stanley cup was a very shiny experience.

If only tennis were as big as hockey in Canada *sigh* :mrgreen:
