its my second cousin to get drafted but who is counting. The other went to the Rangers back in 09.

Dominant on the ice, and a class act off the ice, straight A's in school and die-hard follower of our beloved Croatian NT ...the kid has a bright future on or off the ice.

Hey who could forget your uncle who played against the great Croatia teams circa 41-45.

My only beef was that he was associated with the wrong team in Madrid.

any team in Madrid is shite. it's a shit city to begin with. it's like the basketball of cities lol

but uncle is a legend. is among world top 10 goalscorers of all time (426 first league goals in 396 games), a stadium is named after him, in Spain he is referred to as "El Mágico Húngaro", but that name comes from his time at Betis iirc, got kicked out of the NT because anti-communist comments



too bad he and my aunt never had kids

Još Hrvatska ni propala dok mi živimo,
visoko se bude stala kad ju zbudimo.
Ak je dugo tvrdo spala, jača hoće bit,
ak je sada u snu mala, će se prostranit.

I used to go to a half Croatian half Italian school on Saturdays here and played against Mississauga Croatia
