One thing, regardless of geo or demo challenged how does this relate to the guy leaving the Canucks and Whitecaps to join a basketball team?
Now your getting warm.
I have no clue whether he was good at what he did here. The fact there was someone in place to do an important job is at least good management.
And we do need all the help we can get because we are; What I said! he-he.
There is nothing strange about it and I would take a bet that every high-profile pro sports team that to varying degrees depend on ticket sales and other population based income, has one, at least.
But now I'm also trying to figure out what G.R. means.
Google has brought up a couple of suggestions:
Gotland Runt - a yearly sailboat race around the island of Gotland
Game Reactor - a magazine for gamers
Grande Randonnée - a system of walking paths in southern Europe
Georgian Railway - the government owned railway company of Georgia (the country, not the US state)
General Relativity - the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915
I'm pretty sure none of these is what Mick is talking about.
Help me out here! What or who did I - allegedly - lie about not knowing about?
Come on now, have a few drinks and stare at the GR - Gorgeous Redhead
