My mind has been blank for a while. I’m not sure why, but it’s a bit empty. I was thinking of what I could tell you, and share with you, but right now, my mind is just blank and I’m going to blame the pain of a 4 week long headache. I’m working on getting it looked at. We did the first round off steroids, no results. So that means I call them back up tomorrow to schedule an MRI.
So I’ve been trying to think of something to write about, and I realized it fell into my lap, well not really, it happened a few weeks ago, right at around the time of my headaches.
I love sports. Hockey is my favorite. Absolutely favorite! I’ve followed it since the year the Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 1990-1991 season. I was around 8, and was immediately hooked. I cannot help it. Something about it called out to my tomboy side in a huge way. It didn’t matter that they kept declining after winning the cup again the following season, I’ve followed them loyally, even through the Strikes, I was waiting and praying for hockey season to return.
Then the new era started with Sid, Malkin, and Fleury. Neal, Talbot, and Guerin. Oh I was in love even more than I thought I could be. I actually was able to wait on Billy Guerin and Fleury when I was waitressing. It was at different times. Guering was at dinner after a charity event game. Fleury, I waited on when he first came to play here. Also had the change to wait on a bunch of Steelers too, but I’m sorry, Hockey trumps Football, and Football trumps American Football every time. Welcome to my world people!
Anyways, the whole point of this… I was picking up lunch the other day at the local Sheetz gas station, getting my MTO on, and I turn around, and who do I see? Fleury! No joke. I work right by where I work is the International Airport, and the team was flying out soon for an away game. Someone was down to earth and let me get a photo with him. That is all. It made a crappy day kinda better.
