When Jiri Fischer collapsed on the Wings bench, I had a decision to make and quickly. Do I sit and just watch or do I try to inform the hockey surfers of what is going on? The decision was easy, just start describing what I am viewing and try to keep everyone updated as quickly as possible.
Others who did the same as me are On The Wings, Back In Blue and as mentioned yesterday, Smug Monkey from 360 VRWC.
Along with posts at the numerous hockey forums, the blog and web community should be proud of the work they did. Judging by the numerous emails and hits I received overnite (from European countries), I feel we were able to put people at ease and make their day a little better by providing the information they were seeking.
update 12:16pm, The Wings have put out the following release:
If you'd like to send Jiri Fischer a message or a get well card, please send us correspondence to the following address:
c/o Detroit Red Wings Community Relations
600 Civic Center Drive

Please do not send correspondence to the hospital. We will see that Jiri receives your messages and well wishes. Thank you for continued support.
