Life, the universe and everything according to an NHL goalie.


All too often we are let down by those in authority when it comes down to quotations on the 'heavy' topics in life. Life, the meaning of same, the universe and such. Do you recall we had a US presidential candidate that once said; "Space, is a very big place."

On the flip side of that coin, all too often we are also let down by our sporting heroes, in that absolutely all they want to talk about is themselves.

Let's face it, the life perspective and World view of many of our athletes is nothing short of pathetic.

Thankfully, there are exceptions.

Take for example Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. He was asked last week his thoughts on how, you know, asteroids nearly blew the earth up and all that.

His summary finalé is a thing of simplistic, honest beauty.

"I think we've gotta like be thankful, and be happy, and enjoy every day (of) our life with our relatives, our wives, kids, and enjoy our work every day."

Someone needs to go ahead and put that on a t-shirt.

I'll buy one.
