We've all lived through them Cuc. Our allegiance can never be doubted.
As for your ridiculous number of posts, thank you. You're definitely a hall of famer in that regard. Always poised, composed and thorough.
Little side note:
I'm a born and raised Montrealer who currently lives and is raising his family in Connecticut. My wife is originally from here. She (like I) were children of greek immigrants who for better or worse were involved in the restaurant industry.
When I decided to buy out my inlaws and renovate their legacy store I had to clear out the furnace/storage room. While doing so I came across my personal holy grail.
One game used Patrick Roy Sherwood goalie stick from the mid eighties with a broken shaft and an autographed Roy Koho stick from his days in Colorado. I personally lost my sh!t when I discovered them. My father in law couldn't even remember how he got them. He recalls having a customer of his that worked at the Hartford Civic Center who might have brought them to him. But of all the players that funneled through the NHL in the years the Whalers were in the league what are the odds that it would be my hero's?
I grew up the biggest Roy fan. Met him at a softball tournament in Joilette in 1987. It was a larger than life experience for an 11yr old me.
Safe to say they are both mounted on my office wall.
