"My world exists in a place known only to those who have been here before. It is a place that allows me to escape the daily routine of life, to experience moments all my own, yet shared with others. My world exists on the ice, where I retain lifelong memories filled with the grandeur of battles past. It is here that life gives me opportunities to delve into a world only hockey players can appreciate. A world where anticipation is heavy with fear as I lace up my skates, knowing fate is in my hands with the stick that I taped. What would I do without this game in my life, or the place where dreams are made? What would I do without the dressing room, the smell of sweat-dried equipment, and the chatter of small talk as I prepare to go to war? What would I do without the cold crisp air burning my lungs as I skate hours on end, early mornings, late nights? What would I do without the travelling of great distances to take to the ice, or the sounds of pucks banging off battle-scarred boards? There is only one thing to do, and that would be to do it again, knowing that I wouldn't change it for anything. You see, each time I put on my jersey, I take pride in the very crest that means I am part of something special: A group of athletes willing to sacrifice individual achievements for The Ultimate Goal."

..... its great you know, being out there on the ice, and when you skate, its like flying, and all the cares in the world go out the door; and then my friend, its just you and the game. No more worrying about this and that, all those circular vicious thoughts are gone the instant you step down onto the ice. Thats the beauty of it really. The fire, the ice, and you. Thats all :) Its a team sport, at yet, at times, you feel you are the only one in the world....close your eyes...can you feel the rush when you score? up go the arms and the stick. Ahhhhhhhhh!!! Can you hear your teammates and the crowd? Pain is temporary, Bones heal...but glory, my friends, that lasts forever :D

"...Noontime wind can you blow
For me one more time
And take me on back to the start
Where the midnight moon shines so bright
Nearly pulled us up to Heaven
By the strings of our heart..."

Now God himself could never save us...

"The ship was sinking; we were drinking, singing one last song,
Casting our gold into the ocean.
You grabbed a bucket, started screaming, "Come on, come on",
Let's try and slow the downward motion.
Back in the kingdom, we were kings and queens and Oh, so strong
That God himself could not contain us.
We never thought we'd be the shorter end of sword and gun.
Now god himself could never save us.

Waves of silver, waves of gold
Are coming now to take me,
Separate my body from my soul
And Jesus either leaves or takes me.
Hopes of heaven, fears of hell
And what's the chance I'll make it.?

When all my other plans have failed,
And I tried so hard to fake it.

We started sinking, drinking water from the open sea
Losing our bodies to the ocean.
You grabbed my hand and started screaming, "rescue me"
Together fight that downward motion.
Back in the kingdom we were kings and queens and Oh, so strong
That god himself just had to show us.
We never thought we'd be the colder side of land and sea
But he's the only one who knows us.

Waves of silver, waves of gold
Are coming down to take me,
Separate my body from my soul
And Jesus either leaves or takes me.
Hopes of heaven, fears of hell
And what's the chance I'll make it?
When all my other plans have failed,
And I tried so hard to fake it."

Charles Chaplin


"I have no further use for America. I wouldn't go back there if Jesus Christ was President..."

"Friends have asked how I came to engender this American antagonism. My prodigious sin was, and still is, being a non-conformist. Although I am not a Communist I refused to fall in line by hating them. Secondly, I was opposed to the Committee on Un-American Activities— a dishonest phrase to begin with, elastic enough to wrap around the throat and strangle the voice of any American citizen whose honest opinion is a minority of one..."

Mr. Butler I presume...

“One of the nicest privileges as an actor is to know that you can move people in one moment, make them think about their lives, or make them laugh or make them cry or make them understand something. Or just make them feel something, because I think so many of us, including myself, spend too much time not feeling enough, you know?”
