The Steve Yzerman's Coming Home Appreciation Thread

You just had to know this thread was coming.  8)

So imagine waking up a little after 6:15 in the morning for no reason at all, like I did - kinda grumpy because no one wants to wake up that early on their day off. Since I crashed out, I didn't plug in my phone either; but since it was right by me I decided to check Twitter just in case I had the chance to laugh at the Moron in Chief and any things he to say about the report that completely exonerated him. Twitter had other plans, however...

Naturally, I calmly typed out a quick RT with the hopeful message that I was looking for.

Found my answer a little bit later.

Again, I typed out a couple of calm, measured tweets in response to this bit of good news.

The rest of Red Wing twitter however was not as calm or in control as I was.

A few hours later, around 3pm, a press conference happened to confirm what was made public hours earlier.

Once again, I kept my cool and sent a response of general approval.

I think this covers the emotions of the moment.

I'll have more to say in the days and weeks ahead, but this simply is awesome. Take the Harbaugh coming back to Michigan response and multiply that by 1000. My idol's home and things are starting to look bright in Hockeytown once again. :)

But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity. - Martin Luther King, Jr
