Congratulations on your cat making it into the hockey hall of fame. That is truly remarkable!

Hell, I can't follow that.

Well done Julie.

All I was going say that it was pretty much a no-brainer that he'd be inducted. He's like the Russian Yzerman (next to Fetisov, the Russian Gretzky/Ripken).

I made the same mistake but I'm sure Igor would look really cute in hockey gear, wasn't that in a movie once?

Julie - He is a remarkable cat.

Jorge - But I remember back in the late 90s, "they" were saying he wouldn't get in because he spent most of his career in the USSR...guess they didn't think he'd play another 8 or so years. ;-)

Dr. - Cute.

Sal - The real Igor is very cute, aka The Professor. Not that my cat isn't cute or anything. Cat is named for Hockey player. A cat in hockey gear in a movie? Hmmm.

Jorge - I missed you slagging Papa Bear by comparing him to that cherry-picker Gretzky. Bad Jorge.

Hey now. I don't think I can call The Great One a cherry picker. Mario Lemieux, sure, but Gretzky's ability to see the ice is legitmately the stuff of legends.

It was just his scoring. Look at footage of his assists. That guy could find the open man and make a no look pass like no one else.

And my comparison to Fetizovand Greztky was really just about "Greatness". Slava is the greatest Russian player ever.

Sorry, Jorge, but Gretzky was even a bigger cherry picker than Lemieux...to say nothing of a whiner. I mean really, how many goals would Gordie or even Stevie have had if they had had a protector like McSorley.
