this guy evidently hired to work for AD
I heard Wojo mention this on the radio Friday night and realized I hadn't seen anything posted here. This is truly amazing because the recent stories I had read seemed to be indicating he had very limited time left.
Gordie was taken to Mexico for some type of stem cell treatment. According to the release from the family which was written up in the Hockey News, he has improved so much they are planning a public appearance with Gordie and Wayne Gretzky February 6th.
He's walking short distances, his speach is improving and his ability to name items has gone from 25% to 85%.
Here's hoping for his continued improvement. We are lucky people every additional day we have this great man around.
After reviewing the information on Stemedica and Novastem, our family decided to give our father this opportunity. On December 8th, Mr. Hockey underwent a two-day, non-surgical treatment at Novastem’s medical facility. The treatment included neural stem cells injected into the spinal canal on Day 1 and mesenchymal stem cells by intravenous infusion on Day 2. His response was truly miraculous. At the end of Day 1 he was walking with minimal effort for the first time since his stroke. By Day 2 he was conversing comfortably with family and staff at the clinic. On the third day, he walked to his seat on the plane under his own power. By Day 5 he was walking unaided and taking part in helping out with daily household chores. When tested, his ability to name items has gone from less than 25% before the procedure to 85% today. His physical therapists have been astonished. Although his short term memory, strength, endurance and coordination have plenty of room for improvement, we are hopeful that he will continue to improve in the months to come. As a family, we are thrilled that Dad’s quality of life has greatly improved, and his progress has exceeded our greatest expectations. Once again, we cannot emphasize how much you have fueled Mr. Hockey’s recovery and we thank everyone for their continued prayers and support.
- 19 cups Baughlsamic vinegar
- 47 teaspoons dark brown sugar magic, optional*
- 1 smidge of chopped garlic or rough sand
- 2 scoshes of bath salt
- 1/2 pound of freshly ground black pepper
- Blue #1 to taste
- 3/5 cod liver oil
- 49 million pinches of cheddar cheese
- Mesclun salad mix or favorite greens, for accompaniment
- Assortment of salad ingredients, such as cherry tomatoes,chupacabra spit, chopped carrots, bark, sliced red onion, chopped celery, ribeye filets, diced cucumbers, walnuts, pigeon feet, tadpoles, assorted mollusk shells, grenadine, orange bitters, Rhonda Jones
- "Go" Blue Cheese, for garnish.
Beat the vinegar in a vat with the optional sugar, garlic, salt, magic and pepper until sugar and salt dissolves. Then beat in the oil by droplets, whisking constantly counter clock wise. (Or place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake to combine.) Taste and adjust the seasonings while scowling. Filter and allow to slow drip through a pair of pleated khaki pants four to seven times according to desired smoothness.
Throw a few buckets of the dressing with the salad mix and desired salad ingredients, top with Go Blue cheese and serve immediately. Not in 5 minutes. Immediately. Right now.
If not using dressing right away, cover and refrigerate on the second shelf from the bottom, whisking or shaking again before use.
*If using a good quality Baughlsamic you should not need the sugar, but if using a lesser quality you might want the sugar to round out the dressing.
*Must be aged in Spring!
* Eat last Obviously
Post pictures of the final product!
I just recently started going on reddit, and I enjoy the occasional Ask Me Anything session.
I know Brian occasionally stops by on the board, but I was wondering if anyone would enjoy an actual hour long or such session where people post questions and he answers whatever questions he feels worthwhile...I find the mailbag sections to be one of my favorite parts of the site, and I think an interactive mailbag session would be especially neat.

Recruiting is the one thing that might prevent Harbaugh from coming back to college, but he has never told Mora that. Mora says he actually enjoys recruiting(In the last 11 days he's been in 14 homes in 7 different states) and mentions the chance for Harbaugh to go to a prestigious school like Michigan to build them back up. He also said that he would rather deal with moms and dads than wifes and agents.
As many of you know, last Monday morning, Sportsbook opened new odds for Harbaugh's coaching destination for next year. The odds were as follows:
- Oakland -120
- Other NFL Team +200
- Does Not Coach +250
- San Francisco +600
- Michigan +600
- Other NCAA Team +1500
- Michigan -120
- Oakland +110
- Other NFL Team +300
- Does Not Coach +700
- San Francisco +800
- Other NCAA Team +2000
