Knew he was a huge Steeler fan and know he was from Pittsburgh, and
travels back often, but funny to see him go from his broker outfit to
super-hockey fan. Most of my friends cannot name one Ranger, Islander
or Devil but know Gord Lane and Wayne Merrick like it was yesterday.
Another friend and I were talking sports last week and I asked him
how many Devils could he name and he said none. Rangers none.
Islanders none. We were talking about sports on television in this
area and he were talking about why the networks would air Pittsburgh
and not the local team here and I said the name Mario Lemieux and he
knew who he was and that he came back. And I said that is why the
local team here does not get on television.
He was raving pretty good about Kasparaitis all night.
