…Bristol quoted me.
You all know how I loathe Bristol and everything they stand for because of their long-standing feud with my team–but they quoted me in the latest issue of Bristol the Magazine under #26 of the ESPN100 for 2006, right next to Mr. Hockey (which in itself is ironic, because the man finished his career playing for the team whose latter-day incarnation I barrack for).
For those who don’t get the mag, the quote was from this entry from July:
Valo[u]r. I can’t think of this man without that word coming to mind[, not after 2002]. It’s right up there alongside other words used in connection with him: class, dignity, and respect.
The parts they chopped are in brackets. I was going to keep things on the down-low until a few people mentioned it to me either in my commentbox or via IM. So yeah, Bristol quoted me–and they even confirmed with me that I’m a Wings hater even though I said nice things about their now-retired Cap’n.
It’s official: I’m a media whore.
