    Default Surprised

    Maybe I'm wrong but there seems to be a lack of support from Juniors, Cadets, Explorers for Chris Kangas. This is surprising because he represents us and by them (the federal government) not putting him on the wall it is a slap in the face to those of us who work hard and genuinely help on scene at incidents. However I could be biased because I am part of a department not 2 miles away from where Chris ran. Thanks for listening to my rant.

    Or, some people refuse to get involved in the pointless banter between people. I for one have an opinion, but have no desire to publicize it here because I'm not into the chest banging and yelling matches. I will and have discussed it with members of these forums that are good friends of mine.


    Also, I wouldn't go so far as to call it a slap in the face, but to each his own.



    That is all I will say.

    Have a good day.

    I'm glad you've discussed it with you're friends and glad you have an opinion.

    I'm not trying to get in a yelling match or bang my chest. I'm just biased because I grew up a mile or two away and we work closely with thier department. I just feel strongly about it.

    Thumbs up

    Browsing around and found this thread and a few thing stood out to me.


    1. If there was not suppourt for you guys out there you would not be here.

    2. You ARE NOT Firefighters, you are Fire Explorers, JR. Firefighters, Cadets, and so on.

    3. I do not see why the the Maryland Jr, Cadet, Explorer what ever, name could not be on the Wall, as a fallen Jr. Firefighter, Cadet, Or explorer.

    4. This thread maybe the new Mighty ducks thread, but I do belive that if you have a opinion on something, Its worth stating, and if it leads to a fight, then its worth fighting for. If you never stand up for your thoughts, opinions or actions, you become less of a person, by letting every one else walk over you.

    Just my 2 Cents....Take it how you want it and to each there own.

    I am no less of a person just because I refuse to get in a pointless argument over the internet. TRUST ME. I will live to see another day and quite frankly, this issue probably will not cross my mind in during that day unless I log on here.



    Canada ain't gonna be hunting any mighty ducks if I have anything to say about it! Besides, I think that would be reason for war, we would just invade.

    That's where we come in ..............the enforcers.




    It also doesn't hurt that our goalie is so fat that he leaves no room between the pipes for even Jesus himself to score.


    No wonder they are good, they got a fat goalie and the flying V.


    'Nuff Said!

    Not too mention the fact they have Emilio Estevez as a coach. Who better than him. And Averman leading the offensive side of things

    Hell ya and Charlie Conway is just a solid all around player. I can see the Ducks goin all the way this year.




    On a different note considering the mention of Emilo Estevez, the theme of our prom next weekend is "A Knight At The Roxbury" (we are the Knights).

    *So anyways, I was standing there waiting to use the pay phone.

    -Yeah, he was, seriously.

    *And this guy who was on the phone, turns around and tips his hat like this.

    -And who do you think that guy was?

    *Emilio Estevez.

    -The Mighty Duck man, I swear to God, I was there.

    *Of course you were, you were the one who yelled the Breakfast Clubber's name.

    -I was like, "Emilio!!!!!!!!!"

    Best movie of all time right there! Thank god for Richard Grieco smashing into them with his Lambo, otherwise they would never have gotten into the Roxbury too completely woo the women of that club













    Well maybe best movie was a little over the top, but good none the less

    Agreed.

    And I think it can also be agreed that we have successfully hijacked this thread.
