A Moment of Silence

A tragedy happened yesterday and I'd like to take a moment of silence in remembrance of Ryan Smyth, once an Oilers icon, now nothing but a sweet memory. Many fans are bidding farewell to this hockey-great and out of love for my husband, a HUGE Oilers fan, I would like to dedicate my blog to him this morning. Honey, I'm sorry for your loss!

Now, I'm not into hockey but I call myself an Oilers fan - it's better for our marriage. LOL! But even I felt a twinge when I heard Ryan Smyth had been traded. (No, it wasn't indigestion) This guy had become so well loved by Oilers fans, myself included. He's one of the only ones I can actually recognize on the ice! LOL!

Anyways, this is for you, Honey. And now, for that moment of silence......................................

My heart goes out to your husband for his loss. I don't really understand it (not being into hockey) but I know those who are dedicated fans to the sport feel pain when their favorite players move on. So! to Shauna's Honey, I will give you this moment of silence, and remember it will be alright. (chuckle)
P.S. The chuckle was not mean't to be disrespectful of the tradgity.

LOL! You should have seen how serious he was when he told me the news. He said, "Honey, did you hear the bad news today. I have something to tell you." My first thought was, oh no, work wants him to move in! LOL! I have to say there was slight relief when he told me the "news". But, Brandon called last night, so he had someone to sympathize with him.

Okay, I admit that I was disappointed by the trade! First Anson Carter and now Ryan Smyth!! The Oilers keep trading all the players I can recognize on ice. LOL!
