    I'm new to this board but have always kind of lurked around it. Anyways I'm a huge Sens fan and I read this article today about Bobby Ryan's life. It's a very good article and very intense read. Sorry if this has been posted before.

    It's incredible how this is popping up everywhere

    I mean ESPN ran this story YEARS ago

    ESPN!

    YEARS AGO!

    EDIT: I don't mean to attack the OP, I just find it amusing that ESPN had this covered before anyone else. I mean, it's ESPN

    Same writer that did the ESPN story with the follow up though. Gare Joyce is one of the best.

    Read that article ages ago but I highly recommend it to everyone. I was all the more happy we got Bobby knowing what an interesting life story he brings along.

    I knew about part of the story, but I had forgotten about the Bobby Clarke aspect of the Bobby Ryan story. The recommendation to Owen Sound is pretty intentional if you ask me even if a former Flyer wasn't the coach there, because that is by far and away the smallest OHL market.
     
  18. I thought this was going to be a Russell Williams-type secret life, not a my dad is a deadbeat secret life.
