The speculation has been circulating over the last few days regarding Tim Thomas as his future as an NHL goaltender. The Bruins organization practically confirmed his impending absence for the upcoming season, and as of today Thomas has done the same. Posting the following on his Facebook page:
“From the earliest age I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a hockey player. I’ve been blessed in my life to not only be able to live that dream, but to achieve more than I ever thought possible.
The single minded focus that is necessary to accomplish a dream of this magnitude entails (by necessity) sacrifice in other areas and relationships in life.
At the age of 38, I believe it is time to put my time and energies into those areas and relationships that I have neglected. That is why at this time I feel the most important thing I can do in my life is to reconnect with the three F’s.
Friends, Family, and Faith.
This is what I plan on doing over the course of the next year.
What does this portend for the future?
We’ll see….God’s will be done.
