Well said. Can't believe it has been a year. Badger would have been proud, or maybe would have told you to man up, but either way you would have made him smile.

It's hard to believe it's been a year since Badgerdano passed away. August feels more like the anniversary for me, since that's when we found out. I've been thinking about him lately as the Hawks have gotten further in the playoffs - and also throughout the last year as I've let loose a muttered "bah!" when some situation or person has annoyed me. Reading through the SCH thread MMD linked to has made me remember a lot of the fun times we had on SCH - laaarmer's coupon issues and Badgerdano's responses remains one of my favorite moments ever. You were a great friend, Badgerdano, and I still miss you.
First time I've been able to make and actual "handle"- (Timothy Fisher on SCH btw). Here's to Badgerdano- Cheers my friend!
I've been making friends on the Internet since I was about 3 or 14, but before I got into hockey, they all tended to women around my own age. SCH was a strange experience as I realized half the crowd were dudes my parents age, but it really wasn't that different, especially with Badger. He played up the crusty old man for the jokes, but was never someone to call someone a band wagon fan even though he talked about the pain of losing to the Habs in the 70s. Dan was a great person to know, and I was one of the lucky people who got to meet him in person on June 11, 2010 and it took me about five minutes to realize he was offering to buy me a post parade shot so we could all celebrate, because I didn't understand a supposed stranger doing something that great. But Danno was great, and the comments section is a worse place without him. I'm actual headed to the Bottom Lounge as I type this to see a show, and I'll be ordering a shot in his honor.
What a great tribute. His fanpost on Kane is still one of my favorites, and he is most definitely missed. Cheers to you Badger!!
