JR's return to BMR went pretty well last night, and I certainly got some feedback from you all about it. I've forwarded the emails along to him where appropriate, but there's one that stuck out that I just had to show you all. You guys and girls are awesome, but let's face it, none of us are actual NHL players. Well guess what... Today I got an actual, completely real, not faked at all*, email from one of the game's greats. I couldn't believe it, but the proof is in the pudding.
Remember, it's completely legit. No smoke and mirrors here cause this place is all about being serious. No jokes. No fun. No BS.

You sure have got some nerve, man. You think you're soooo special don't you? With all those puck bunnies trying to act all cool. I get it, man. You're macho. You think you're God's gift to hockey. You probably listen to Nickelback and call everyone 'bra' too. Whatever.
I'm the best American born hockey player. Ever.
Think about that for a second. I bet your little brain can't figure it out. You should probably ask your NHL 94 character what that means. That thing had way better skills than you ever will, and he was probably smarter too.
I don't even know why I'm wasting my time here. We'll settle this out on the ice, like men. Well... I'll settle it like a man, but I'm sorry that I can't say the same for you.
Oh yeah, and for the record... In the immortal words of South Park, I'm not your buddy, guy!!!!
Best of luck, (You're gonna need it!!)
I don't know about you folks, but it looks like we've got a rivalry a brewin'! I, for one, can't wait to see how this series unfolds.
* - OK, completely faked.
