Guest post: "The Day I Was Recalled"

(written by my fiance Erik, with apologies to Don MacLean)

A long, long time ago
In a rink in Halifax
I can still remember
How if I tried my best
I could outskate all the rest
And I'd be called up for a while
But my opponents made me quiver
With every hipcheck they'd deliver
Just let them notice me
Let the phone call be for me
I can't remember if I bawled
The day I got my call
But something changed me deep inside
The day I was recalled.

That call, incidentally, came from the Canadiens in March 1981.  Just a little bit of humor that I found too good to not post.
