Upstanding Comedy

Lat weekend went to Upstanding Comedy Tour and friends of ours were one of the opening acts for The Fidgets, the headline act on the tour. All the comedians on The Circuit provide clean family entertainment for the whole family. It was a fun time and was thoroughly entertaining.

So, since this is a hockey blog, you may be wondering what this has to do with hockey.


Our friends decided at the last minute to invite Brantford's Lord Mayor


Got to hang out with him a bit. He still draws the crowds as he posed for pictures and signed autographs for anyone who asked.

And since the Leafs weren't playing, all was good.

My Wild Hockey Life

Not mine though. I'm talking about that wild and crazy guy Georg Festrunk  Miroslav Frycer.
I recently had the opportunity to review Lubos Brabec's book on him.

"My Wild Hockey Life"

I'll have to admit that, even being a Leafs fan, I didn't know a lot about Frycer.  He defected, played for the Nordiques and traded to Toronto. After that, played in Detroit and Edmonton, then fell off  the face of the earth. This is not your usual story but one "wild" life, both on and off the ice. I highly recommend this for Leafs and hockey fans everywhere.

So, in return for my reviewing the book, I received this autographed copy. First time obtaining an autograph by this method and BONUS, it's a Leaf.
