Tailing the Komets

From Terry Pembroke to Guy

I walked away from my first introduction to Guy Dupuis, impressed, not an easy thing to do in my case. Interestingly enough, I had never seen him play the 'game'. No need. What struck me was his honest, sincere demeanor, and his ability to make people around him comfortable. In time society, forgets about your ability to play the 'game'. From the day you take that jersey off, the world starts to look at you with different eyes.

The world will now see a man, in the true sense of the word, when it looks at Guy Dupuis. The lucky ones who meet him from now on will be dutifully impressed also. They too, will have never seen him play the 'game'.

Good luck, my friend. You and some like you, are the reason that the Komets enjoy their phenomenal success.

It was maybe 6-7 years ago and I was sitting in the hall at McMillen. Guy was walking out, turned around, and headed back in. I didn't know Guy very well (still don't really) but I knew him enough to say hi in the hall. As he walked back I said, "Forgot something, eh?" He turned around to me, loomed over me, and said "Are you from Canada?"

As I sat with Guy looming over me I had my first thought:"Oh my gosh, this guy is big!" My second thought was "Oh my gosh, he thinks I was mocking him!" My third thought was; "Oh my gosh, I'm going to get thumped!"

The fact is, I do sometimes slip in an 'eh' as part of my normal speech, and I was innocent of any attempt to mock him or his country which is a place I deeply love.

At any rate, I meekly answered that I wasn't born there but had spent a fair amount of time in the north. With him a foot away I saw the twinkle in his eye, and it dawned on me that I was being played in return, and that he was a cool dude.

I am glad that Guy was a Komet, and glader still that he is part of the community.
