Default bad vlad

well vladimir konstantinov just came into the shop yesterday to get a few repairs done to it. i was so excited because the last time i seen him in person was before the accident. i seen him on tv after the accident when he first stood up but i havent seen him walk or anything in person. well he come in and is in the rassenger seat and gets out with help of his care taker and see him walk with his walker. now when he was playing hockey 12 years ago i was obssesed with the wings. when the accident happened i think i was a little to young to realize the severioty of it. but seeing him today in that state was heart breaking for me but incredible at the same time. and felt amazing that i was the tech that fixed his van.

Some guys make hitting look like an art, Vlady was one of them. Still one of my favorite defensemen off all time.

YouTube- [NHL Classics] Vladimir Konstantinov vs the Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup Finals 1998
Vlad was my favorite player when he came here. I was at that Flyers game!
I also have met him a few times prior to and after the accident. I have a game worn playoff jersey signed by him before the accident. One of my greatest peices of sports memorabila.

ok so to clarify. vlady came into the shop to get his van worked on. and i was the one that worked on it. if you dont know who vladimir konstantinov is, he was an amazing defencemen for the wings and got into a horrible car accident after winning the stanley cup in 1997

We were at the opening game for the 75th season. They brought out many former Red Wings stars, and then at the end Konstantinov came out. I've never been there when the place was louder (even a couple of play off wins) and there must have been something in the air, because many guys were suffering from allergies.

He was a great player. I'm glad to hear he is walking, even if it is with the help of a walker. That's amazing progress.
