Hockey, Joe Murphy, National Hockey League discussed on Pat Gray Unleashed

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Doug's build back on the street guy's dukes back the truck in the Trump for like an hour. Ruined the heart warming feeling the warm fuzzies evaporated when did the Trump is opening? No, he's not. No the dog. The dog is great. I was reading a story last night about a person who has been homeless for while which is even more heart wrenching than the dog who was on the street for what three years you said. Said, well, this guy from the National Hockey League he had made read about him. Yes, he's in Canada, and he's homeless. Now during his hockey career, he made thirteen million dollars a fifteen year career. Joe, Joe Murphy. Yeah, Joe Murphy. His last three years he had. He had a three year, ten million dollar contract. So the guy made ten billion in his last three years. However, now he's on the street and he's been on the street for several years and he's estranged from his family, and he's goes in and out of being, you know, coherent because they think he has c. t. he got severe horrible concussions during his hockey career, and it changed his personality, they say, but the guy will go in and out of really great memory from his hockey days hill say, you know, coherent things about his life, and then he'll be mumbling gibberish the next minute. Then he's telling a story about his hockey. Then he's telling his story about his dad treating him badly. Then he's off on some other tangent, and then he's okay again for a while. It's kinda weird, but this this reporter spent a lot of time with them and apparently, you know, hockey, they love hockey in Canada, and he's in the small Canadian town, and they the police found out who he was and then it kind of. Spread through the community. So people will stop by and give him stuff all the time because they're huge fans, and he, they can't get him off the street though because he doesn't want to go. But towards the end of the story, he talks about how they got somebody from the NHL who deals with. Former hockey players and helping them and one of his former teammates, and they flew up there to Canada to try to find him. They did find him in the got an apartment, and they set him up with food and they, you know, they got them all situated and then he left it all. That's just so hard. What do you do with people who don't want help? I don't. I don't know what to do. You can put the dog in the trunk and just driving back home. You can't put the person at the truck and just driving back home. It's hard and you know, like the the reporter said, you can't force him. You can't force him to stay in a place. So he doesn't freeze to death outside and Canada. It's already snowing there. You can't force him to live in an apartment. You can't force him to go to a shelter. Really tough. It's tough situation. I, I don't know what to do about it, but it was that that was a heart wrenching story, triple eight, nine hundred thirty. Three Ninety-three more.
