    Almost afraid to post on this subject, its expensive!!!


    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May you keep your boots on for many more years.


    An inspiration to many, the first reviews that I enjoyed were written by DOC. We can say he got me into the writing of reviews as a more personal emotional story!!!

    Thanks DOC

    Being a sports fan. I'll make you a promiss of a gift (you will have to wait on my return in 4 months), which Montreal Canadiens player is your favorite (active or Legend, my suggestion is Jean Beliveau last time I saw him he was on his last legs). I will get you an autographed memorabilia. It will be easy, A close friend of mine played with them in the 1986 Stanley Cup win.

    Its funny, everytime I leave for the middle-east I am always in a giving mood. I hope this is the last friends birthday.

    Damn! I honestly don't know what to say. Do you remember which one of my reviews inspired you the most?

    As for my favorite Habs player, it has to be the Flower, le Demond Blond. But yes indeed, Jean Beliveau is right up there also. Truly a classy individual....a true gentleman. And you're right about him being on his last legs, sorry to say. Beliveau happens to be my late grandfather's favorite player (along with #10) also. And since i already have some of #10's memrobilia & still bump into him once in a while, i guess my choice would have to be Le Gros Bill. Anyways, it's appreciated of course.

    Did you know that Beliveau came a whisker of signing with the Leafs instead of with the Habs? This would have been great for the Leafs. But anyways, i wasn't born yet when this happened. Or was i? I still remember him scoring his 500th goal against Gilles Gilbert of the North Stars.

    Anyways, thank you all for the b-day greetings. The older i get, the more depressing i get on my b-day. However, it's totally different when i come to Mtl on this special day. It actually makes me looking forward to my b-day. There's nothing like spending a b-day with good friends, good food, good fun, good women.......nothing like it!

    Last year at this time, i had just been told by a cardiologist that i had likely suffered an infarct. It really made me think about my life & if i got through this, i swore i'd look at life differently. Well, i have. And later, after further testing, i discovered that my initial diagnosis had likely been an incorrect one. However, it had been a sign that i needed to make changes in my eating habits and lifestyle a.s.a.p. And yes indeed, i've been feeling much better since, knock-on-wood.

    Enjoy life, people. It can end anytime, no matter how old you are. Death doesn't discriminate.

    You all take care & thanks again....

    Seems to me your birth date here on MERB changes about as often as your hockey allegiance does but anyway if it really is your birthday then congratulations and have a good one.

    And since the life expectancy for a male in Canada is 79 and you’re turning 49, I’d say you’ve got about a 50/50 chance of seeing your Leafs make the playoffs before you die.

    The review that inpired. The one that you had written about Paige from Celine's fantasies comes to minf first. I lovef the story telling mixed in with the erotic emotions. Truly a classic in my mind. Inpired me to write how the ladies make me feel instead of filling up the review with acronyms. I figure the board needs both type of reviews.

    Jean Beliveau it is, personally I don't like Lafleur. Yes he was an amazing player, but I have met him a half dozen times outside the fan base. I find him arrogant and unrespectful. The things he can say when the fans are not around, yikes.

    You never know with me, I may just try to get all the legends in one signing, its been done already!!

    Happy Birthday, Doc! I sincerely hope that your recent comments in the hockey thread aren't an early sign of Alzheimer's. Although it would explain many things!

    Have a good one!

    A very accurate post!

    Doc, you'll probably live well beyond 79 but sadly it still won't be long enough to see the Leafs win a Cup. To enjoy that picture you'll have to rely on your memories from when you were seven years old.

    Anyway have a great birthday and don't overdo it on the nitrous oxide.
