I was signed to a $207 supermax rookie extension back in the late 1970's.

That money's long gone now. Blew it all on gas and groceries.

And mortgage interest rates?

Good for Luka. He seems like a good enough player on a team that desperately needs his level of talents, so he was able to parlay that into a nice payday.

May Anze Kopitar, fellow Slovenian, still feel that $10 million per year from the LA Kings is good enough.

I blew my $207 on Ruben Amaro Jr. rookie cards.

If you know anybody who wants a Ruben Amaro Jr. rookie card ...

I overheard someone say after the Olympics that Luka is a long overdue Slovenian feelgood story.

I was a bit surprised to hear that. I thought there was a feelgood story that originated in Slovenia as far back as 1998.
