Aother wizardly creation from my terrific stepson in St. Petersburg, Russia – Denis Brel. This guy has so much talent that if he lived in North America or Western Europe he’d be so successful I’d almost certainly be borrowing money from him right now.
He’s sent me stuff before – the Queen and Barack Obama wearing Habs sweaters, Obama behind the Montreal bench, Jacques Martin lounging shirtless on a couch, Bobby Orr wishing he was a Hab, and the photo for my site over on the right-hand side of the page – the one with the Jacques Plante mask. He sent great pictures of a KHL game he was at, a scouting report on Alexei Emelin, and also created an amazing comic book years ago that I think he continues to update.
It’s great. I say, hey Denis, can you please put Bobby Orr in a Habs uniform for me, and soon after it shows up. Perfect!
Denis, his wife Natasha, daughter Anastasia, and Denis’ brother Maksim have just finished the process of doing the endless paperwork to visit us for a month next April for my wife’s birthday. It’s all in the hands of the Canadian government now, who have to the power to say yes or no to this important visit.
This is a fine fellow with a beautiful family, with a mom who misses them very much. We need the government to say yes.
