Hey Look!


Richard Zednik was released from the hospital!  Of all the horrible things about that horrible accident, the thing that will probably stick in my mind the longest was the terrible look on Zednik’s face as he skated off the ice. I think the news agencies thought that by panning away from the blood they were sparing us the worst of the scene, but I was really spooked by Zednik’s expression.  It’s great to see a picture of him looking robust and smiley, posing confidently with his foxy wife and his foxy surgeon.

He actually looks amazingly robust.  He looks like nothing even happened.  Shouldn’t he have a crazy scar, or at least a band-aid on his neck?

    He had a big band-aid on, but some candy striper with heavy eye-brows and a taste for brains took it and, while this picture was being taken, drew a lovely leopard print pattern on it for Zednik. So thoughtful, that candy striper.

    Methinks those buffalo wings he requested had some amazing healing properties. Go Buffalo Wings!

    Pookie, thank you for the image of that candy striper. Its good to see that he’s taken up volunteerism while on the IR.

    When I saw that picture I was stunned at how big he his. He looked so frail and small that night. So happy to see that he’s been released.

    I know, me too, Patty. I keep coming back to look at this picture. It’s really comforting.

    The Doctor represented Buffalo quite well. It was nice to see a Buffalonian in the national spotlight that didn’t have pizza or wings haning out of his or her mouth.
