This guy is obviously a hero, but all I can picture is Grampa Simpson talking about wearing an onion, which was the style at the time.

No penalty there? Like, seriously?

There should have been 2 called there!

My thoughts exactly. I saw nothing wrong with the interview whatsoever.

Ah, he's 88, probably the last time he'll get to tell his story. What the heck.. I didn't mind.

I have absolutely no problem with that at all. I love listening to the veterans talk about their experiences.. My point is, I wish he didn't have to talk over a game. It is a wonderful idea, just could have been executed better. Still a great gesture by Root that I appreciate. Sorry if that came out as disrepectful

Edit: I'm ex-military, so trust me, I don't mind listening to my elders for 5 minutes, or 5 hours for that matter. It was definitely a great story, I just tuned out the game and listened.

Nothing wrong with having it, and the guy's story deserves to be heard. That said, it was extremely akward to place it in the middle of live action. It could have been better placed.

not disrespectful at all. I think these sorts of things are allowed on a day like today, even if the interview is done by someone who is somewhat difficult to understand.

Every time I see a Greatest Generation vet like that, all I want to do is walk up and just shake their hand and get to know them.

I liked the interview, but I would have preferred it to be a Potash Between-period interview. I guess he was riding the zamboni at that point though.

So now we're in the business of not caring if a guy who has had concussion problems in the past is ok just because he isn't a star player?

Unreal!

Love to hear all the stories but would have appreciated it if they would give it the respect they deserve, not over a hockey game.
