Today's mail bag received a stirring tale of determination from Jamie Dittrich, who displays the kind of gutsy determination of which WSHSP Champions are made. (Now a cynical person, say Oliver Albrecht, might interpret the following missive as an preemptive excuse, but this reporter shan't number himself among that motley crew).
Jamie Dittrich, busy father of 5 still finds time to gamble on high school hockey.
we were in mexico during the run-up to WSHSHP '09. i'll have you know with the 2/17 EOD deadline looming last week, i packed up the family, hiked a few miles down a dusty mexican back road, and parked the family outside in 90 degree heat while i logged on to the only functioning computer in the village. i was limited on time and made some plucky, albeit hasty picks. despite my current 42nd place standing, my top 2 teams are still very much in the running so i need to get squared up financially with the commish... please tell me where to send my $$. i am standing by awaiting your instructions.
go OLD ABE !!
Let me just say that it's tales like this one that make this tired old soul feel a little less alone come February.
