Home Again

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

First and foremost, it’s a love story. It always was with Ryan Smyth.

“I didn’t ever want to leave in the first place,” said the repatriated Edmonton Oiler.

“I feel like Edmonton is home.”

Finally it became official Sunday. Captain Canada is coming home.

“We wanted to come back to Canada. Our kids are starting out in school. Two of our three kids were born in Edmonton.”

That’s it. No seriously ill parents or grandparents. The end of the big homesick.

I remember how tore up he was when he got traded.  This guy is a heart and sole kind of guy and will be the Captain some day.
