Observations: You could probably make a television show out of the life of Ralph Strangis

There was much rumination over how to describe Ralph Strangis, and this is what I came up with:

“He doesn’t mind the puffy shirt.”

That tells you that he loves Seinfeld, a requirement in this pop culture corner of the internet. It tells you he’s probably more Kramer than Jerry (although there’s probably a little of George and Elaine mixed in there, too). It tells you he’s not afraid of the devil-may-care mood if it strikes him.

And the mood struck this week.

Ralph Strangis is walking away from his dream job as play-by-play man of the Dallas Stars because he’s not afraid to take a chance, because he’s ready for a new adventure, because he doesn’t mind the puffy shirt.
