How quickly did YOU get your driver's license?

"That was great, like having another son in the house. One of the funniest stories ever was how he got his driver’s license. In NY state it usually takes at least a month. Somehow Thomas figured out a way to set the world record for the fastest license. From the time he set down to get the application and the time he actually got the license was like 48 hours. He had to take a 6 hour course, he had to do all these things and he did it just like that. I went with him to the driving test and he passed immediately. I think the examiner was a hockey fan. That was really funny. Nobody will ever get the license faster. Because you had to guess a code on the computer or had to wait at least to wait 2 weeks to get that code. But Thomas simply guessed the code by playing around on the keyboard."

-Steve Bartlett, Thomas Vanek's agent.
What a smarty pants.

Oh, and look at what Joe DiPenta did in Portland:

Craziness.

Holey Shinto!!! That was insane!! While I hate the chop, I love the passion that he has in avenging his new teammates! Some of the boys in the big club should take notes...

Now I have an image of Vanek as this big time hacker. heh.

Wow. That's insane! I don't agree with what he did, but I guess I'm glad he's sticking up for his new teammates?

I bet he can figure out cheat codes easily in video games.

A lot of people are reacting to it differently. Some people think he should be suspended longer, and how it's a disgrace to the organization while other people are glad he stood up for his teammates.
