    Good for Jaromir! 7 points in 3 games. See what happens when you let him play his game.

    Thanks Kovazub, I saw that earlier and just finished translating.

    As for the photo, that was comment was tongue-in-cheek. I don’t expect it to turn up on the ‘net anywhere. But it couldn’t hurt to ask, just in case someone who knows someone who knows someone happens to be reading. ;)

    Frankly, it’s my own fault for not asking for it when I had the chance… we spoke to them probably a half dozen times over the course of the season, but I never had the guts to ask. ;)

    Sorry kz, the first comment got flagged for moderation, the second went straight into the spam filter, so I didn’t see it until I went into clean out the daily spam. It’s the links… the software obviously thinks you’re trying to spam me with links to canadian pharmacies and online dating sites. ;)

    You stole my thunder with the Sykora interview link. I was looking forward to posting that one! ;)

    Oh, please translate Sykora’s interview anyway – there were a lot of prime tidbits for discussion. I’m sure our friends at BB would appreciate his opinions. ; )

    As you know I think very highly of the quality of your translations (and subject matters) – that’s why I forward you links if I find anything worthy. Is there another way you’d like me to send these to you?

    No worries, I’m still going to translate Sykora’s interview — or parts of it anyway. Hopefully tonight — I ran out of time last night. My brain can only handle so much Russian in one night before I start replacing my “r”s with “p”s and by “s”s with “c”s when I type in English. ;)

    And thanks (again) for the compliment and by all means feel free to keeping sending along any links you find. You can post them as a comment or email them to laurie (at) beyondtheblueshirts.com (replace the “(at)” with @). If you post here and it doesn’t show up immediately, don’t take it personally, it just means it got caught in the spam filter, I’ll find it eventually!
