Nail Yakupov Meets his boyhood idol.

Dont know if theres a thread on this or if its even thread worthy, but as a Canucks fan I thought it was cool that the timing for this worked out.

Obviously Pavel Bure was back in Vancouver last night, and he was Yakupov's favorite player growing up. The two were able to meet for the first time yesterday.

Yak: Hi, very nice to meet you.
PB: How's it going? (His exact words were: "Everything ok?" which is one normal way to ask that in Russian).

Then it cuts forward in the conversation, they're talking about a place. I think it's safe to assume that Yak took a picture with PB when he was younger. Bure tried to place the photo in his past or at least to know where. Then he tells Yak he has a picture when he was 10 with Gretzky and that no doubt there will be young kids taking the same type of pictures with Yak.

After the photos, Bure tells him he's doing everything well/great and to just continue what he's doing. Some pleasantries are exchanged.

Overall, very little content.

I love translating Yak's tweets actually, except that I actually speak Russian and mc79 just runs them through google translate. I've sent him my translations for the tweets, but so far i don't think he's noticed me.
