  • Your help is needed!

    Since September 11, 2001, Americans and Canadians have come together as
    never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome
    tremendous adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil,
    wars overseas, corporate/government scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock
    price plunges, droughts, fires, mad cow, SARS, high gasoline prices, and a
    myriad of economic and physical disasters both great and small. But now, we
    must come together once again to overcome our greatest challenge yet.

    Hundreds of Professional Hockey players in our very own nation are going to
    be locked out, living at well below the seven-figure salary level. And as
    if that weren't bad enough they could be deprived of their life giving pay
    for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the upcoming lockout
    situation. But you can help!

    For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost a
    large screen projection TV) you can help an NHL player remain economically
    viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the
    problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it's a start,
    and every little bit will help!

    Although $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to a hockey player
    it could mean the difference between spending the lockout golfing in
    Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is
    nothing more than a month's rent, half a mortgage payment, or a month of
    medical insurance, but to a hockey player, $700 will partially replace his
    daily salary.

    Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to buy that
    home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari,
    or enjoy a weekend in Rio.


    Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you
    sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate,

    and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon
    signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the
    player lounging during the lockout on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean
    (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on
    your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.


    Your NHL player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to
    help in a time of need. Although the player won't know your name, he will
    be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case
    additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.


    I would like to sponsor a locked out NHL player. My preference is (check

    [ ] Forward [ ] Defenseman [ ] Goaltender [ ] Entire team

    (Please call our 900 number to ask for the cost of a specific team - $10
    per minute)

    [ ] Jaromir Jagr (Higher cost: $32,000 per day)

    Please charge the account listed below $694.50 per day for the duration of
    the lockout. Please send me a picture of the player I have sponsored, along
    with an Jaromir Jagr 2001 Income Statement and my very own Bob Goodenow
    (Executive Director of the NHLPA player's Union) pin to wear proudly on my
    hat (include $80 for hat).

      Oh please let's not go into that issue. I get so wound up over these guy's financial woes. I just can not understand how they can justify their salaries.
      I can feel my BP rising so I will quit yapping before I do myself an injury
      If you are willing to teach;
      I am willing to learn.

          I can't wait for the day when pro hockey players picket outside schools and medical research labs protesting $1 million saleries for teachers and lab techs trying to find a cure for cancer Oh wait, that would be in a perfect world only. You want sympathy for overpaid whineing sports figures, you know where to find it!
