Perhaps the only Flyer in a solemn mood Tuesday night was rookie Luca Sbisa. The 18-year-old defenseman was scheduled to return to the lineup against the Senators after sitting out Sunday's game in Newark, but he slept through his alarm, missing Tuesday morning's 9:30 team meeting.
``I just didn't hear it, I slept in,'' said Sbisa, who invited his parents to see four games, but only played in two of them. ``It happens. They gave me an opportunity to play again and I messed up. Next time I'll set four (alarms) and hopefully one of them will work.''
Stevens said Sbisa recently purchased a new cell phone and could not figure out the alarm.
``I'm sure it'll be a lesson he won't soon forget, but he's a great kid and it's all part of growing up and being a good pro,'' Stevens said.
I can understand that. When I was 16 I was camping with friends at a music festival. In the middle of the night those ****ers set of an alarm clock and threw it into my tent because they were to drunk (16 is legal drinking age in austria ) to be able to to get it turned off. I slept through it.
Oh boy, that is funny. I bet the cop wasn't laughing, though.
You'd be surprised. It's not like it's OUR car! LOL. In fact, my Cpl. just wrecked this morning while we were responding to another crash (it was icy as hell at 1 am). Once we knew he was okay...we laughed at him all night.
Sbisa is living with some older woman who always houses flyers If I remember correctly. she must have been X mas shopping
I'd bet she's not responsible for keeping him to his schedule. She's not his Mom, and he's a professional athlete. He's an 18-year-old kid, and God knows I've slept in a few times, so I'm not ripping him for it. But it's his responsibility to be where he needs to be.
