The hockey world is still reeling from the untimely death of former NHLer Wade Belak. I posted my last article about Belaks passing on my facebook yesterday afternoon, and a dear friend of mine, Pete, or as my friend Jessica and I call him “Herr Grau”, made a comment on it…
Belak played seven years with Toronto, so it’s only natural that diehard Leafs fan Herr Grau was a fan of his. His apartment was like walking into the Maple Leafs Hall of Fame. In fact, the guy has a Maple Leafs logo tattooed on his arm… That’s passion, people.
He directed me to Youtube to search for “Wade a Minute”. It’s a internet series about the life of Wade Belak. I watched every episode of it last night, I couldn’t pull myself away from it. He is such a funny, down-to-earth guy; I couldn’t stop laughing. No wonder Toronto fans were so sad to see him leave the team.
When you have a few minutes today, sit down with a bowl of popcorn and a cold beverage and take in a few episodes. I posted a couple of my favorites below, but if you go to youtube.com and search “Wade a Minute”, you’ll have a bunch of episodes to choose from (the user name is jodyvancevids). Trust me, you’ll fall in love with Belak a little more after watching them. What better way to celebrate his life than to watch him laugh.
