The One and Only #3

by Chelsea

Since this blog IS named after Stephane Robidas, I figured a post about him would be appropriate.

Starting off with a quote, from the other author of this blog, about our meeting him in the autograph line after practice yesterday:

“Me: How’s your nose? Not broken this time?
Him: Good – no, no, not this time!

Pretty nasty looking cut though.”

Stars-Telegram.com posted this new article today, about Robidas. My favorite quote from it is this, because I think it sums up his attitude well: “‘The day I don’t feel the need to prove myself anymore, that’s the day I’m going to retire. . . I don’t take anything for granted. . . . Every year you have to prove you belong here. Obviously I feel more confident than four, five years ago. But if I don’t do my job, someone else will.'”

Finally, a good Robidas picture:

You dont see a lot of pictures of Robi fighting, but that just makes this one from 2006 that much better. Would have liked to see this shot from 10 seconds later.
