Back in August, news came out that Kimmo Timonen had blood clots in his leg and lungs and would not be able to skate or play hockey without putting his life in danger. It was a scary situation for Timonen, who spent the last half-year just hoping to get better so he can finish his career on the ice. And now, that time has come.

According to Delaware Online, Timonen has been cleared to play and will skate on his own for a few weeks, starting today. He’s not all better though, as “the clots in his lungs are gone, but the clot in his leg is chronic, yet stable.” And that’s the best news.

The 39-year-old Timonen has already said this is his final season, and he just wants to “leave this game with my skates on.” He’ll get that chance.

    1. Thank you josh. People from the mid west and the south usually don’t do well up here. Philly is more of a blue collar city, however, we are still the NE US. We are very much in the center of the mainstream. The mainstream being the LA area and the tristate area. We tend to dislike the folksiness from the Midwest and the south. So go back to Alabama or LSU and I’m sure you will do fine in those markets. Philly is not for everyone.

      1. Innes is not mainstream? Are you serious? He is killing it in this market. Him being from Missouri has nothing to do with him being accepted up here. Brian Dawkins is from the south and philly loves him. So your argument makes no sense.

        1. Bob, you are dumb.

          Are you joking with the Dawkins thing ??!


          That’s why we love him you jack off. Innes is an OUTSIDER!!!!

          1. Dawkins is the most overrated player this city has ever seen. “Practically killed himself” is a bit of a stretch, eh?

        1. Yea right. Trust me on this. Innes is the next voice of Philadelphia. He is hilarious, witty, and sharp. He would be a star in any field. He can act. He can sing. He would make an awesome stand up comic. He is fearless.

    1. If you have a problem with Josh then you have a problem with me and trust me tough guy,you don’t want me as an enemy.

  1. So this morning my car wouldn’t start and I think it’s due to I used the wrong antifreeze because my husband insisted I use full strength even though the manual says use 50 – 50 mix. And it is cold out there I mean C-O-L-D er than a witch’s tittie in Montanny as my old grizzled grandpappy used to say.

    I don’t think I’ll listen to either 94.1 or 97.5 today, these radio wars threads are more entertaining.
