A prescription for chaos The doctor is in the house.
When the ray ban aviator large St. Catharines Saints acquired 6 foot 3, 230 pound Burlington ray ban sunglasses 2016 models native Tim O prior to the Ontario Lacrosse Association senior B season, they acquired a player nicknamed The Surgeon. It ray ban clubmaster wasn because the affable O day job was in the medical profession he works for Halton Region water department but rather the result of a long ago season playing senior lacrosse for the North Shore Indians in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association. Then a 20 year old, O took it upon himself to fight every team heavyweight in the six team loop. Two players he fought had to be stitched up by doctors and some ink stained wretch of a sports reporter decided to honour that bloody distinction. pretty sure it went something like that, he said with a laugh prior to the Saints 18 7 win over the visiting Oakville Titans Friday night. However it came about, he proud of his moniker. a lot of worse nicknames out there and that a pretty good one, he said. fitting. would go on to win two National Lacrosse League titles with the Toronto Rock and also have NLL stops in Rochester, New York, Albany and Orlando. In 2010, an online poll voted O the toughest fighter in NLL history. saw it and it was quite an honour, he said. never grew up aiming for that. I just wanted to go out and protect my teammates and be the best teammate I could. just fell into it. SENIOR B B6 Much of what is written about O is a enjoyable read, combining large doses of fact and an occasional sprinkling of fiction. It true he learned how to fight by watching VCR tapes of fights in his parents home and then tried out the moves out on his unwilling younger siblings, Danny and Sean. Twist was my favourite, he said. And while it true he was like every hockey and lacrosse player who passed the time on long bus rides watching Slap Shot and Rocky, there no truth to one media report suggesting he prepared for games by watching the two classics. is a bit of an exaggeration, but they do get you fired up, he said. What isn fiction is O lives by The Code: don do something you wouldn want done to yourself; don hit from behind; no cheap shots; and no hitting someone when they down or defenceless. And when the fight over, there no pantomime of strapping on a heavyweight belt or some other ridiculous gesture. no showboating, I just do my job and go to my home, he said, again with a laugh. Soon to be 36, O came out of retirement to join the Saints at the urging of St. Catharines head coach Pat Campbell, who suggested he come and be a part of a team that had a chance to win a national senior B title. Campbell and O went to elementary school together, played minor lacrosse in Burlington, suited up with the NLL Toronto Rock and exchanged punches on the lacrosse floor at least a half dozen times, including one infamous bout when Campbell, a goalie for the Six Nations Chiefs senior A squad, played out for a game so he could scrap with O who was playing for the Brampton Excelsiors. a good buddy of mine and I like to help him out any way I can, O said. Saints GM and assistant coach Dave Colbourne is delighted to have the enforcer. is basically there to protect our investments, he said.

They should let guys police themselves. Cheap moves and bad moves are going to pay a price on the floor. from the floor, O is a mild mannered guy and attributes his Jekyll and Hyde persona to being a Gemini. Geminis are said to have a dual nature. put my helmet on, go out there and do my business, he said. He does admit to worrying about hurting someone.
never want to hurt someone seriously, and I have in the past, he said, turns ray ban wayfarer cheap your stomach and when you injure someone, it a crappy feeling. it could happen to you. has never been badly hurt and he displays a badly, misshapen finger, injured this season, as his worst ever injury.
