Barring that, they should take him to the Russian Sub Museum in Providence. It ROCKS!!!
The last ditch effort should be breakfast at the Foxy Lady.
MOC praised Providence- the problem is Zino watched Outside Providence on the flight over....and if the Foxy Lady parking lot isn't paved yet I'd say he's outa here. If Mo Vaughn spoke Russian he'd could take him under his wing.
They seem ready to do everything to try and convince him to give it some time in Providence. IF I was running the Broons I'd have some serious support in place to get this kid comfortable. I'd think there has to be some Ashley Judd look alike with speaks fluent Russian and loves hockey over at Harvard's School of Language (I'm making this up but there has to be one?)
