Getting Screwed


I was standing on the bench with Rich just days before Christmas our team was firmly entrenched in second place in the DEL2 unbeknown to me in only a matter of days our lives would be turned completely upside down 

Where Am I ?


Walking up the steps onto our plane I couldn't help but think back to less than three months ago I was a sixty year old man putting out produce in a Food Lion grocery store in Jamestown North Carolina for $9.25 and hour now I was walking up the stairs onto a jet in Frankfurt Germany getting ready to dive back into my first pro hockey game in over two years and making a f*^k of a lot more then $9.25 an hour!
