Predators rookie phenom getting a little help at home.
Including such gems as:
If you happened to be in St. Louis on Oct. 3 in the moments before the Nashville Predators' season opener against the Blues, you might have seen a woman hurrying down the steps to take a video of the Predators' warm-up. You might have seen her pressed close to the glass with her camera and then giving a quick wave to one of the Predators.
And you might have seen rookie defenseman Seth Jones shake his head in disbelief and look quickly away from his mother.
Back to the season opener — which happened to coincide with Seth’s 19th birthday — when Amy found a fridge magnet shaped like a beer and presented it to Seth because he’s not of legal age to drink.
"He didn’t think that was very funny," Amy admitted, and Seth offered merely another rueful shake of his head.
"It’s great having her here," Seth said. Not that Seth is a kid who is looking for trouble. He has always been a good student, well-liked. His mother tells the story about picking him up from preschool only to find his teacher had been regularly taking Seth into the staff room on her breaks and feeding him doughnuts because she enjoyed his company so much.
"He gets it. He understands it," Poile said of the defenseman’s understanding of his role. "He has that ‘it’ quality, if you will, both on and off the ice."
Veteran forward Matt Cullen has seen a lot of highly touted youngsters come along (and sometimes pass just as quickly from sight) in his career and, like Legwand, has been wowed by Jones the person and Jones the player.
Basically Seth Jones is great and is kinda embarrassed by his mom because he’s 19 and she’s his mom, which is also great.
(please be to ignoring the random video of Team Canada, IDK either)

This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
I was just talking to Blue about taking the language of the Bible in the context of the time period in which it was written.
