Thanks Chris

If I am not mistaken, the last time I posted an entry, was back at the end of July. I have been pretty busy since then, and many times, thought about writing something to post. But each time, I talked myself out of it, thinking that nothing I had been doing was all that interesting. Plus, how could they be called part of any “Lax Odyssey”? So, I opted not to write about our Epic trip to Alaska, my visits to the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame and the National Basketball Hall of Fame, and a number of other pretty cool things.

But on Friday the 13th, I got a Facebook message from Chris Fuger, who I had the pleasure of coaching for many years. I was so touched that he took the time to message his thanks to me for my role in bringing lacrosse to him.

Needless to say, this made my day! And got me thinking.

So, as I continued working on the endless kitchen renovation, I began to think about how much coaching lacrosse has meant to me and how much I have gained by doing it. I have had the great pleasure to work with so many great young people and to get to know them and their families. Whatever I have been able to give to them, has always been my pleasure. I was fortunate to have some great coaches when I was growing up, and hope I have been able to be a positive influence, like they were for me.

It dawned on me, that my Lax Odyssey began long before I began this Blog last winter. In a way, I have been on it, since I was introduced to the game when I was in 4th Grade. So while I thought the “Lax Odyssey” ended with the end of the 2019 season, I am starting to think that this journey will continue, as long as I am still involved in the game. Thanks for helping me to see that, Chris.
