  • DAMN! Get well quick, BFS! I'm glad to hear you're doing well.

    That's one badass looking scar. Don't watch the SF - StL highlights, you'll bust a gut.

    Take care, man.

  • I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you BFS. My thoughts are with you as your recover. Hopefully we'll finally be able to meet when the Hawks come to town in November.

    I see providence. I see purpose. I believe it our fate to be here. It is our destiny.

  • Get well. Hopefully you at least get an attractive nurse to comfort you :)
    You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.

  • Thanks for the details on the incident, Fargo. It sounds a lot more premeditated than it did at first to me. I was picturing two guys fighting...BFS steps in trying to tear them away from each other and is caught between them...a knife comes out from somewhere and BFS gets stabbed. More chaotic is what I was thinking. The incident Fargo describes is not even a fight. The guy lured BFS outside and then surprised him with a sudden knife in the gut.

    I don't see how that isn't attempted murder. I don't know the law so maybe I am way off base, but could the DA be going for the two charges he feels most confident of winning and therefore securing jail time for this guy?

    Anyway...let me say again to rest up and get well, BFS. That scar is the definition of wicked.

  • I didn't do it!!! I swear!!!

    I can't stand BestFightStory, but I would never wish harm come to him. Hope he fully recovers as our issues are merely in the realm of stupid crap that doesn't really matter at the end of the day (politics/social issues).

  • Glad to hear you're on the road to recovery Leif. Thanks for the update fargo. Some here are saying this is some excuse to hate the Packers and their fans... Really? This is just some drunk criminal asshole that happened to be wearing a Packer jersey. It's the same as the fan of some other team painting all Seahawks fans as jerks because some moron Seahawk fan threw a beer on him at Qwest. Every team has asshole fans. Just a fact of humanity. Anyways, looking forward to seeing you post again BFS! Take care buddy. Bill

    Holy overly-literal interpretation and flat out missing the joke. Guess it's not an internet msg board, without someone taking innocent comments entirely out of context and getting all unnecessarily sanctimonious. lol.

    Of course it's just one guy! Who the hell would say otherwise? (That is unless you're jumped by a gang of Raiders fans. Bit diff. ;) ) Still wouldn't mean I wouldn't associate what happened with me with the clothes the guy was wearing at the time. If I were stabbed by a guy decked out in Ferrari gear, guess what? I'd probably forever remember this fact forever every time I see that logo. And I can end up hating Ferrari's without hating those who drive them. Does that mean we're talking entire fan bases and people? Hell no! Come on now.

    Sorry to take away the focus of this "GET WELL LEIF" thread. Let's get it back on track. Dude, that scar is crazy man. Yikes! I take it's as gnarly as it is due to the docs having to open you up. But that doesn't make it any less scary. That is one serious beauty mark. One the bright side, if anyone on this board can pull it off and turn it into a chick magnet, it's you. If Dom or myself got something like that, it'd just scare them away. lol. Again my man, take care of yourself. Get better.

  • I've been lurking these boards for just about ever, and always enjoy your posts - Best wishes on a speedy recovery, Mr. FightStory. It takes balls and a good heart to break up a fight among strangers, and a mind-numbing level of cowardice to pull a knife on the peace-keeper.

    When justice runs it's course, at this time next year you'll be enjoying the hell out of life, and, despite his weepy objections, this clown will be having his poo stabbed.

  • yeah, there are multiple articles popping up on the internet and on the radio that are just plain inaccurate. some have said Leif was a Packers fan and this Hinderacker douche stabbed him. just terrible terrible reporting. i would love to respond to every one of them.

  • Whoa. This is all over the news. Just did a google search for "Packer fan stab" and got a whole bunch of articles. Including one with a pic of the scum bag. Damn. At least the fool seems he's going to get what's coming to him.

    And yeah on the misreporting going on. From two seperate reports:

    http://www.twincities.com/allheadlines/ci_13516369
    The Seahawks fan left the restaurant but was followed by Hinderaker, who was wearing a Packers t-shirt.


    http://www.startribune.com/local/637227 ... aec8O7EyUr
    According to criminal assault charges filed Wednesday, Ryan Hinderaker, 30, "bickered back and forth" in the restaurant with a 41-year-old man about the game. Police said Hinderaker was wearing a Packers T-shirt. After the game, the man followed Hinderaker outside to confront him about his behavior. Hinderaker then pulled a knife out of his pants pocket and stabbed the man in the stomach, the charges said.


    I'm gonna go against what the Star Tribune says, as they didn't even realize that Leif was a Seahawks fan, nor that he wasn't the one the dude was fighting with inside.

    The Tribune also goes on to say that the stabber dude was the one to call 911, as if he was some kind of hero. Really? Not saying he didn't. I don't know the details. But the way they reported it seems really lame to me.

  • Thank you all, very much. I am so appreciative of all the love and support I have received from my family and friends and co-workers. It has been overwhelming and I am grateful for every word and gesture.

    I am still in much pain and discomfort and I am weakened from not eating since Monday, so I wont be around much to answer questions.

    Some of what you have found in the media reports is not accurate. I stand behind everything I did on that evening.

    Thank you all again.

  • I don't know what all has been said here and my reading comprehension and attention span are down, but it seems that i was very evry very lucky. Many internal organs are potential ltargets in the area I was stuck. My lower intestines were "nicked" twice, but fortunately they were not puncturing wounds, else I'd have likely suffered septic poisoning. Currently, they are waiting for my intestines to function normally.

    A quote used by me virtually everyday at work. :D

    And BFS remember it please as its sadly true. Maybe that needs to be our new slogan.

  • I have been granted a premature release for hard work and good behavior. Still plenty of pain to sort and suffer through, but it will be nice to be back in the town where I grew up and watching the Hawks with my bro, dad and ma.

    On a side note; I received a request from a producer of the Mitch in the morning show to come on and do an interview on Seattle radio next week. Haven't yet responded.

    Thank you very very much to those who sent prayers and/or kind words/thoughts. They were invaluable.
