Coach Reveno discussing the injury to Nik Ravio

He’s wearing the boot more as a precaution to keep it immobilized and to get it to heal. Our trainer’s doing a great job with treatments, and anybody who knows Nik knows he’s focused like a bulldog, attacking that rehab and doing whatever it takes.”

I got my morning chuckle off that.

I don't understand why he didn't think to say that he was focused like a pilot? Well, on second thought, there was the event with the pilots overflying there destination by a hundred miles. Oh and that's RIVER pilots too, never mind. :o

Not so much parapraxis as yearning for a stronger symbolic element.

Yes, he could have said Nik was focused like Sully on the Hudson. The Pilots do have their own hero to look up to, no need to bogart the Zags' mascot :)
