Afternoon Line

“It’s obviously been a long road for me; I’m still suffering with a lot of daily issues, right now it’s been a tough go. I’m just trying to get through and not worry about hockey right now, just worry about my health because I have three young kids and they’re important to me.”

“Mornings have been tough. When I get up in the morning I’m a little foggy sometimes.  But as the day wears on I’m pretty good. Hot sun is tough; I try to stay in the shade and stuff like that and pop the odd Advil and it seems to be okay.”

-Marc Savard of the Boston Bruins during his day with the Stanley Cup.  More from TSN on Savard.

Here’s to hoping that the B’s are successful in their lobbying to get Savard’s name on the Cup… he deserves it. Knowing that he got a day with it is a very good sign though.

That’s really saddening to read. The guy is just having trouble with day-to-day activities that we all take for granted. Saying it’s tough isn’t really saying it strongly enough. I hope Savard gets well enough to have a normal life with his family.
