Today would’ve been Alexander Vasyunov’s 24th birthday had he not died in a plane crash outside of Yaroslavl, Russia in September. Please, if you can, donate to Love For Lokomotiv for the families (I’m hoping one day soon they will have more since everything is rightfully sold out).
Also, one of the plaintiffs who were suing the NFL for a concussion lawsuit (meaning, the NFL knew and did nothing when so many ex-players were killing themselves or having their body and brains shut down on them] killed himself yesterday.
So, remember. Sports is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it’s designed like all things in life, to break your goddamned heart.

I won’t always love what I’ll never have, I won’t always live in my regrets.] and banner is brought to you by Foo Fighters DOA and the fact that that they played the first 6 tracks from In Your Honor since 2007 during pre-skates, including those few times Vasyunov was called up.
