Close to 200 former athletes assemble for Cornwall Jock Fest
I did have a nice evening a few days ago when I attended a "Jock Fest" organized by Andy Petepiece and held a the Best Western. There were 180-200 old jocks there and we had a chance to catch up with guys - some of whom I hadn’t seen in 40-50 years. Don’t forget in the jock world you only insult people you like.

Cornwall - Jul. 19, 2011 - This time of year is quite quiet with all the politicians gone home and the provincial people not in full election mode yet, so it is hard to find something new to rant about.

I did have a nice evening a few days ago when I attended a "Jock Fest" organized by Andy Petepiece and held a the Best Western. There were 180-200 old jocks there and we had a chance to catch up with guys - some of whom I hadn’t seen in 40-50 years. I visited with old teammates like Doug Billing, Dan Wheeler, Bob Piteau, Moe Racine, Gilles Leger, Paul Gaudet, Harvey Provost, and Bouncer Payette to name a few. For the record, we didn’t sit around and tell each other how great we were, we just insulted each other like we always did and got the family histories up to date. Don’t forget in the jock world you only insult people you like.

As I move around town, I hear good feedback about the waterfront. I believe it is the destiny of the city especially with the continued arrival of the "Grey Tide".

I checked out "Lift Off" - weather was great, crowds were great and the music was fun - even for an old dude like me. It has come a long way from the beginnings I remember.

I was going to get into a list of services we take for granted, but the homework I have shows the list is pretty long so I will save that rant until the political types start making nickel and dime promises hoping to blow smoke our way. Taxes and how they are used in upcoming pieces!

Keep Smiling
