YAWN, I'm totally famous... part quatre

by Anne


Yawns. We all know Millsey is my BFF, so it should come as no surprise that he answered yet another of my questions in his blog. I asked this question before it was officially announced that he'd be on the Competition Committee:

What do you think about the issue of the size of the net vs. the size of goaltender equipment? I know this is a big issue for the Competition Committee to discuss, which I'd heard you are going to be a part of and, if you are, good luck! –Anne

I have no problem with discussing the sizing of goalie equipment and a reduction. I definitely think some of it is still a little outrageous. Where I get concerned with the cutting of equipment size is protection. There has to be a method to cutting back and I am happy to give my opinion. I think that equipment sizing coupled with keeping a high standard of refereeing, to give players more room to skate, will increase the chances of a player scoring without making a drastic change to the sport. I don’t really feel like going to soccer camp this summer to learn how to play goal in front of a bigger net.


Really? Because the mental image I've conjured of Millsey in full gear leaping and bounding all around a soccer field while stopping water balloons or something could keep me in stitches all summer.


Anyhoot. I'm sure I have more questions to ask my BFF. Maybe this one will be more like "Marry, Dump or Date" (er, we use a more R rated name, but we'll go with the PG one) and then I'll give him the options of Larry Quinn, Chris Neil or Sean Avery. Hhaha I'm so BAD. We'll giggle and make sugar free cookies and then we'll "drive around buying stuff."


Dear Ryan,

I'm still waiting for my half of our Best Friends necklace. Your girlfriend totes won't mind. We'll be totally platonic. Unlike my previous open letter to Big Bear, cuddling is not necessary. You seem rather bony and perhaps not ideally suited for cuddling. But if you're down, I'm down.

Love,

Anne

  1. I am so jealous of your fame, Anne!!

    I wondered if that "Anne" was you because I loved his answer about soccer camp. The images that gave me will stick in my head for a long time - haha

    "Marry, Dump or Date"

    This game...well, the R-rated version, is one of my personal favorites. Maybe his choices should be Chris Drury, Danny Briere, and Brian Campbell - that could get interesting...

    Since you are now officially Ryan's platonic gf for life, maybe you can get me in with some of his friends - like a certain injured, honking center - haha

    I went there too, only without the water balloons. I also have the image of him walking around a camp in full goalie gear, crashing other camp activities like arts & crafts (boondooggle might be hard to do with a blocker and glove on), boating (sitting on a boat like Washington crossing the Delaware) and nature walks.

    Thanks, Anne!! haha

    I now have a great image of all of them sitting around a fire, roasting marshmallows on their sticks, and telling lame ghost stories, which of course would terrify Pommers so much that he makes Goose check for monsters under the bed.
