There's a nice (well it looks nice from what I can't read) here:
http://www.lidovky.c...phtml?id=191186

I'd love to know what it says if anyone has any idea.
There are a couple of others as well, if anyone's any good at it.

:hi: Hi, ESB. :)

Not like last summer's article, I'd guess. Looks like they cover a wide range of subjects, from Kobe Bryant, to "Hugo Boss", to NYC, to "nejhorsi".

Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

Hi there, ML!!! :)

Yeah, I see some Sykora in there too.
Some of the Czech sites have English translations, I just wish this one had as well.

That picture is killer!!! :)

Try here. Either third one down, or third one up. The third up is for translating webpages and it didn't do a good job. Maybe the other one will if done line by line?

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

I think there's plenty of Scotty swooning to go around!!

I think in Patty's case there's an element there built in for silly public swooning. And ... uh... in most cases... the Scotty element is more of a stand-back and controlled swoon?

I wouldn't begin to compare any player to any player, but you just react to some in some ways. So toes may curl for one player, but then you're beating up the guys you work with over another one. ;)

Thanks, sammy.

If PK's friend Cathy can't come through for us, maybe I'll sit down and try that line by line out.

Hi, all. I posted once or twice on the old boards, but now I mainly lurk. Quite a boring summer we've been having, eh? Anyway, I've studied Czech and am working on translating this puppy. It'll take me a while, so if PK can get her friend to do it, I won't bother. Oh, and it's going to be very, very imperfect. Sorry! I've added question marks and comments in parentheses where I'm not sureaboutthe translation. Here's the first part:

Thanks for all your work in translating Czech!

It's interesting to read an interview from a Czech perspective. They seemed to be alot more interested in status and money. Definitely a different kind of interview than we read here in the states!

Thanks again for doing it, V!!!

Like Lady Stanley said, the interview style is really different.

I ran across a couple of interviews (not as long I'm happy to say), if you get bored.
But I was really excited to see what the big one had to say. Very very interesting.
His poor girlfriend though. Ten years ain't enough? No wonder she's yelling at him!

Nice new avatar ESB! Still no word from Cathy ... :( She might be vacationing or her Mom might be slacking off on translating -- I'll probably have something by Christmas :P

if I do get something I'll be sure to share just for the fun of comparrison!
