Hmmm, I think this one's gonna flop! I'm not sure about it's faceoff capability and his puckhandling skills are non-existent. Yep...this signing's really fishy.

I'm reminded of the story of the fisherman who had twin sons. Aside from their given names, the boys also had unusual nick-names.

The story behind these nick-names was that when the boys were newly born, one of them slept more soundly on the side of the room nearer to the sea, and so he became known as "Toward". The other boy slept more soundly on the side of the room furthest from the sea, and so he became known as "Away".

The boys' father trained his sons in how to be a good fisherman, showing them how to fish for various types of fish along the coast.

One day, the father approached his sons and said, "Today is the day I take you boys on your first deep-sea fishing expedition." So, they loaded up the fishing boat and set off, intending to return that evening.

The evening arrived, and there was no sign of the fisherman, his sons, or the boat. The following morning dawned, and still there was no sign of them. All through that day and evening they were not seen. However, the next morning after the fisherman was found, washed up on the beach next to the wreckage of his boat. He was carried back to his house and given medical attention.

When he had recovered enough, he was asked what had happened, for there had been no storms in the area. How did the boat get wrecked, and what happened to the boys?

"Well", said the fisherman, "we sailed off and all was well for the first few hours. Then Toward hooked a fish. It was a very big fish, because it started to pull our boat further and further out to sea. Toward, being a strong lad, fought the fish, trying to land it, and the fish fought and struggled in turn. All the while, we were pulled further and further out to sea.

"Finally, after struggling with this fish for the entire day, Toward started to grow weary, and in his weariness he lost his balance and he fell over the side of the boat. The fish, noticed Toward had fallen in and swam around and swallowed him whole!"

"Oh my", said one of the fisherman's neighbors, "that truly must have been the biggest fish ever!"

"No', said the fisherman, "you should have seen the one that got Away."

regards,
G.

I think you may want to look at that photo closer. He is not actually holding that fish up.

Imagine you sneaked a fish of that size into the arena and tossed that instead of your average sized salmon.

I completely agree.

Good thing that photo doesn't look like he's holding that fish at all. Considering how it is tied up by its tail and all.

.... Anyways, I think you bring up a great point. We need to fire Gillis and hire Mr. T.
