Wendel Clark was the epitome of playing with heart, determination and dedication. He played for 13 seasons as a Toronto Maple Leaf in 3 tour of duties. Now the Maple Leafs retires his jersey, number 17, as a show of respect & tribute to the most beloved player of their franchise.
I woke up this morning with a nasty cough that feels like my chest is being ripped out from the inside without the aid of an anesthetic. It’s that bad! I coughed so much in the morning that by 12:30 pm I was dead tired and I wanted to lie down for a while. So much for planning on going this Sunday. I’ll just enjoy my day off resting on my bed and browsing on the internets.
I’ve had loads of black coffee today. I watched Star Trek III : The Search For Spock today afternoon and enjoyed the banter of the original cast. They can never be replaced and they probably are the most beloved cast of any tv series. I’ve also found a link that let me download a few music albums in mp3 format. They are zipped and free for download. I got a couple of albums of Steve Morse, a Rush album & I’m currently dowloading a Jeff Beck classic.
Black magic may have worked for the Ottawa Senators. Back in Black and back to winning games. Last night the Sens, debuting their new black 3rd jerseys, came out and won their first game after 6 loses. A fresh new outlook was what we probably needed and against the New York Rangers, it worked in a 4-1 win. The goals came in from Jason Spezza, Daniel Alfredsson, Jesse Winchester & Nick Foligno. Alex Auld made 18 saves but couldn’t get the shutout as Markus Naslund slipped one through.
This was their first win since a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia on Nov. 6. Ottawa had lost each of its last two games in a shootout, including a 2-1 setback against the Rangers on Monday. Wade Redden was greeted with a video tribute at the 6-minute mark of the first period, and the crowd of 19,619 at Scotiabank Place gave the defenseman a standing ovation after the retrospective was finished. Redden spent 11 years in Ottawa before joining New York.
