Hey Mark Wacyk!

This is really awesome! I can't thank you enough. Helps me visualize the energy of our Canadian guys heading to Europe and bringing their excellence to the game. Sometimes I snoop a little to follow the guys, but way too tedius. Jesse's snapshot is really cool! Doesn't it make you dream of having had a gig like this back when we were in their shoes? he,he Congrats to CIS players and coaches ...proud of you.
