I am a contemporary of many of the guys on that team and actually "bent the elbow" at a club or two in nearby Westbury with a few of them during their reign...very salt-of-the-earth, unpretentious company.

Yeah, the last three decades have been a bit hard to swallow but I live in Florida and got caught up in Lightning fever briefly before the season-long lockout. My enthusiasm kinda went away after that debacle and this year's version reinforced my ennui. I still love the sport but the business side of it is beyond ridiculous. Still, there's nothing like a live game and rattling boards, sparking skates and guys rushing to the bench almost blue from oxygen don't get that from watching on TV!
Despite all of life's bumps and bruises, I'm still committed to making this world better one smile, one laugh at a time, every day!
