I know some of us have been wondering why he hasn't already hung it up. The guy is going to suffer the rest of his life with neck problems if he keeps subjecting himself to the toll this sport takes. If he doesn't care then fine, but I hope it doesn't lead to more things like drug abuse, etc.

This is all he knows and wants.

That is unfortunate.  No one told him, "hey, you're good enough to maybe play in the National, but how about learning the great books, or the guitar, or whatever, just in case."

He's a good kid.  He's lucky that he grew up within spitting distance of an NHL team, otherwise he'd be in the A.  He probably should transition to something else.

Betcha he doesn't.

Are you a new daddy, Ted Black?

I am, so I pay attention to babies, but I will be embarassed if you are just lampooning Pegula.

I am happy for you either way

I hate Holland. Always thought that place was obnoxious-- you drive through it and every building says "Holland" on it.

(Just joking btw, I don't really "hate" Holland :P )

Was always a fan of Jason Holland, and if any of you guys (mainly younger posters) have a chance to visit Holland on a little vacation, i fully recommend it.

I've started using the expression "hollandaise," in situations where I could use "very good," or "splendid."

Never mind about Ted Black. This board is what I use to communicate with him.

Do you know he's not an avid reader of great literature or a very good guitar player? This post seems presumptuous and elitist.

I know he builds a mean Lego set.  I don't expect that pays very well.

Can he ride a bike?  Let's get him involved in competitive cycling.

I use mental telepathy.  He rarely returns my calls.

Thankfully, Kaleta returned my telepathic message.  He understands that we don't wish him harm.

We would rather die para-sailing off the Angolan Coast, I suggested.

As for Ted Black, some people think that he is Jerry Sullivan.
