The Time Is Now


Hope you guys are enjoying this so far and would love to know what you guys think!

My phone buzzes and I look down to see a new text.

Dude! What's this about you becoming a college kid now?! Call me ASAP

I laugh picking up my phone and call Jack Johnson's number.

I’m currently sitting at a table in the player's lounge of the Consol Energy Center. Earlier this morning the Penguins organization had announced that I would be out for the remainder of this season. The guys had finished their morning skate about an hour and a half ago. Some of the guys are still around finishing up their off day interviews or just here to hang out a bit before heading home.

"Sid man, what's this about BU?" he asks not even bothering with a 'hello.'

"Yeah, about that," I laugh, "I'm gonna be in Boston so they can keep an eye on me with the concussions and all. I figured I'd try and maybe sit in on some classes, use some of their facilities and stuff once I can work out again." Whenever that is...

"Sweet deal man. Figures when you first go to the NHL I end up at Michigan and now when I'm playing in the NHL you decide to head off to college," Jack notes. “You excited?” he adds.

“Yeah, I guess. I mean to be honest, I haven’t had all that much time to think about it.”

“I think it’ll be good for you,” Jack reasons. “I mean, it was great for me and all but I think it’ll give you a chance to experience something that you were pretty sure you thought you had missed out on, something you weren’t going to get to experience you know?”

“Yeah, I hadn’t really thought about it like that before.”

"Who knows maybe you'll meet some smokeshow of a chick and like BU so much you won't want to come back and I'll get to be the face of the NHL for a while," Jack teases.

Yeah, if this pounding in my head ever goes away...

"Don't count on it."

"Hey, I've gotta get going, but keep me updated on all this BU stuff. I wanna hear about all the crazy shit that's gonna go down. "

"I'm not sure how crazy things are going to get, but I'll keep you updated."

"Alright, take it easy man," Jack says.

"Yeah, you too."

"And Sid?"

"Yeah, man?"

"Seriously though, enjoy it. You deserve it."
