Theo Fleury

So lately I've been listening to sonic on my way to work and on my way home, what is with all the excitement around Fleury being at whatever bar yesterday signing autographs and watching the game with Edmonton fans?

Just seems weird how they were building him up, as if he was some sort of Edmonton Oiler legend that everyone wanted to see.

Theo probably shouldn't be hanging out in bars...

Shouldn't we be honored to have an Olympic Goldmedalist watching the game with us? Sheesh.....

So what if he's in a bar; he's an adult.

He's also a recovering alcoholic with a bevy of personal issues. Every demon pretty much stems from substance abuse in the past. I agree, I don't know if hanging out in a bar would be the best idea for him, but he's a grown man so I guess he can do what he wants. Wish nothing but the best for Theo.

I think he was trying to make a tongue in cheek comment about Fleury's alcohol issues.

What do you mean why were they advertising? Sonic advertises for The Pint and Theo Fleury was going to be there so as part of their advertising to get people out there they used Fleury's name. Makes sense to me.

nay eat the brown snow--far more healthier

as some who knows a lot about drinking and having a problem with--spending a lot of time in bars is not a good idea IMO

When theo was over here and supposed to be sober--he got into trouble spending too much time in bars
