Clarification

After a rather angry email was recieved by the flying monkeys at the Musings, let me clarify some things:

1) This blog is filled with my personal opinions. in America, we can do that... freedom of speech is a WONDERFUL thing. I don't apologize for things I write here because I write what I feel and after years and years of holding things in, I'm done. I have to get it out or I get physically and mentally sick. If you don't like it, don't read it. I wont be offended, I promise.

2) Juraj "Big Guy" Valach was a great kid. I stuck up for him all season to people and fans who didn't think he was playing as well as he could, which he wasn't - he even said it multiple times. I stood behind that kid 100% and you can ask anyone about that. I was definitely his #3 fan in Tri (ma and pa being #'s 1 & 2). My mom and dad cared a lot for him and were very hurt by his words and decision not to come back to Tri. Being hurt and angry and not agreeing with his tactics doesn't mean we hate him or don't wish him well in the future... He's just got a lot of growing up to do, still.

3) I am a Christian by choice and practice, but Jewish by birth. That will never change. All my life I've grown up knowing the horrors of the haulocaust and what hatred and ugliness the Nazis stood for. A swastika isn't something I find humourous. I don't find ANY jokes about any of those things funny. I don't care if they're by stupid teenage boys who don't know any better or real Neo-Nazis.... Millions of people died for being who they were. If I had lived in Europe at that time, I probably would've been one of them, MAYBE one of the lucky ones who got out alive. Sure it's an emotional button that doesn't get pushed on everyone, but maybe it should be.

I'm stepping off of my soap box now.

You are not on your soapbox at all. Everything you wrote is completely legitimate and true. Awesome post.

I'm sorry McP that you have to deal with the idiot pre-teens that roam around the internet in their parent's basement with nothing else to do while the porn loads, but you handled it with class my dear!

McPhizzle said...

Thank you, Sherry!
oh! I got your postcard, thanks for that too! It's beautiful!

Sherry said...

I'm glad you got it safely! I was worried about the postage not being right, haha.

And I apologize again for my ugly, ugly writing.

Your writing was perfectly fine... I used to be responsible for patient care written by a doctor - have you ever seen a doctor's handwriting?! you're GOLDEN :)
