the summer of our discontent..


i was gonna write a post about living with chronic pain and post concussion syndrome... i still might, not just cause these issues are the front and center of the hockey universe right now... boogaard, rypien, belak maybe..   but also cause i live with chronic pain and prolly post concussion syndrome everyday..

however, just now, this is on my mind...
i was half asleep, listening to the bbc world service.. i hear bob miller, the television voice of the los angeles kings, a voice im all too familiar with calling a game where pavol demitra scored an important goal.. woke my ass up for sure.. whats bob freaking miller doing on the bbc? this is what...|NHL|home

and having later read wyshs piece in tribute to these guys.. im gonna just be quiet and let you read what he wrote..

i could only add that i grieve for them, their families, and friends...
