Once Upon a Time in 1996…

1 Aug

Raise your hand if you asked Brian Rolston to your high school prom.

Really, just me?

There are a lot of hockey-related things I could fire my HS BFF for, but this is not one of them.  This was a solid decision back in the day.  Of course I knew he would say no, what with being plenty older than I am and AHL hockey being over by June.  And what my hair looked like those days.   But still… I asked him (circa 1996).

This past May, I pretty much ran away from Steven Stamkos on an empty street.  My skills are not improving.

The Devils traded Brian to the Islanders last week.  Then they signed Zach Parise to a one year deal that probably means his days in NJ are numbered.  Get this – the Islanders are taking players on to reach the NHL minimum payroll under the current salary cap: $48.3 million.  Time for a shopping spree (and more cupcakes).

    Those cupcakes look good, what was the logo made out of?

    You had not run through the Stevie scenario in your head. You will do better next time, grasshopper. Or I better be with you. I am completely immune to his Nordic charms…

    Your stories are awesome, Pants. And like Cassy said, I volunteer myself to be with you when Stammer is in near vicinity. I will run to him myself and drag him over to you if that’s what it takes. 😉

    And who ELSE can say they asked a future NHLer to their prom…well, maybe a few…but none as awesome as you!!

      I hope intern Jeff Skinner didn’t get too upset when he found that out. Ya know he had tons of prom invites, but rumor has it he was too busy at WUYS to be be able to attend any of them…poor guy!
