    True story, although i wish it weren’t. One small detail: Bernie’s “buddy” in the hockey van said he got a ride from somebody else. And after bern wandered around the igloo for nearly 30 minutes before finding the exit, i thought he was on the road already … or lost forever.
    Another car in our convoy got pulled over about 15 miles outside of pgh., so i pulled the van over. I looked in my mirror and saw bernie burnin’ fire as he hopped out of a car and ran towards us with his hockey bag. good stuff.
    I also left brendan downs at the war memorial in johnstown once after playing pitt johnstown … and that was even funnier because brendan had to catch the tour bus on foot. he did, luckily. speedy little bugger.
    Moral of these stories: don’t ride with me. or, make sure your “buddy” waits for you to get on the bus before he says it’s ok to go.
