You'd be in good company. Aside from the Capitals, I have a few friends whose names will be read.

I've yet to talk to Poti or Pothier (Potsy), but I've spoken with Chris Clark on several occasions and he is a great guy. Just be sure to speak into his good ear.

Clarkie can actually have selective hearing and nobody will think twice about it. What's everyone elses excuse?
Chris earned that "C", as far as I'm concerned.
"C" for cadaver. "C" for cryoplasty. "C" for Captain Courageous. :up:
