I was, at best, uninformed.
Some unnecessary background: my father died in 2010 from esophageal cancer. They found it after it had already metastasized. That's stage 4, and generally game over. It just so happened that I got married less than two weeks before he died. He didn't have the strength to make it to the wedding, but we went to see him in the hospital the next day.
What does any of that have to do with Sause? Kind of a lot, really.
Putting aside just the loss of a loved one, I remember so many conflicting emotions around that time. People doing and saying innocuous things and my overly active brain interpreting everything as some kind of attack or potential confrontation.
It wasn't the "right" way to handle everything, but it's now I reacted. I'm not proud of everything I said and did then.
I can only imagine how he might have felt, not being a full-time NHL player, getting ready to play in his first Olympic tournament... If I said I wouldn't act the same way as Tatar did or probably worse, I'd be naive.
I'm sorry for my dumb post Tomas.
