Fisher Gets Recognition

I'm not one bit prejudiced or biased when it comes to Mike Fisher. Just kidding! I'm awfully proud of Mike to be honest!

Here's part of a story on Mike that I read on the ESPN web site tonight:

For the rest of the story, please click on this link:

"(Mike) Fisher ended the 2006-07 campaign fourth in Senators scoring behind the big line of Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley. The second-line center notched 22 goals and 26 assists in 68 games, the best offensive output in his career. He would have contributed more offense had he not missed 16 games in December and January with a knee injury.

Yet statistics don’t reflect the full value of the 6-foot-1, 213 pound center. Now entering the prime of his career, the 26-year-old native of Peterborough, Ontario has speed and tenacity to burn. But the key to Fisher’s game is his toughness. Fisher is both physically and mentally tough. He hits the ice with abandon and creates offense while providing outstanding defense.

On most nights he plays head-to-head against the top players on the other team and those opposing stars have to be aware of Fisher because he is strong without the puck and creates offense once he gets the puck back.

“I’ve always tried to work hard and compete,” says Fisher. “I’ve improved my defense the last few years and I really try to play an all-around game."

I stayed up till 10:30, and fell asleep with the walkman next to my ear on my pillow, tuned to the Team 1200 in Ottawa...woke up at 12:30 to turn off the radio wondering who won...and exhausted all day because of it! Oh, well, I think it was worth it...I mean they won, so my prayers must have done something! :)
    Mrs. Shirkie, how in the world do you get to bed so late, get up early, and stay awake all day?!
