Jim Adair - September 15, 2015

After 14 years in the NHL – 11 of those with the Flyers – Simon Gagne has officially decided to call it a career. “Today, I want to thank my trainers and teammates,” Gagne said in a retirement press release. “You inspired me to surpass myself … I also wish to thank my fans. Every evening, you energized me and inspired me to perform.”

large enough to present a problem for a colony of brush carrying ants?  Check. 
Check.  And triple fucking check.
