Our neighbor's son was an NHL player -retired a couple years ago.
One August evening the family invited us over as he and his family were heading back East to get settled before training camp.
Until that time, I didn't realize how hard these fellows work all summer - to keep fit and therefore retain their team position.
He drank half a bottle of lite beer and announced he was off for a run. Now, mine would have been to the mail box or whatever - after he left, his father told us he did a 15 mile, hilly circuit. Hurts my knees just thinking about it.
One more point, he and his wife were so absolutely down to earth, his children were fun and he had a big German Shepherd to watch out for them when on the road. The dog was down to earth, also, as once he dug a hole in my garden:)
