It’s been quite an adventure
and I’m glad that I have extremely healthy kids and both of them
have thrived and that’s more than just
helping us live, it’s helping us thrive I’m Marcia Liss.
My sons received their early care at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital. I was at the ultrasound.
I was at 32 weeks and Sam was in distress. Before I knew it, there were attendants
taking my bed from the ultrasound all the way down to the delivery area
and we knew they were going to be C-section cause his twin took up a
breech position very early and he never gave it up
and they were born a minute apart and it was very scary.
His twin who was so much bigger was 3 pounds 12 ounces but Little Sam was only one pound 12 ounces.
He was what they call a micro preemie and he did have surgery.
When you are that little they look at everything and that’s part
of the thoroughness of being in a high-level NICU
and if you need to be there you may not want to need to be there,
but once you’re there they have everything,
and they’re gonna be sure everything’s really good. So it was a very scary time
but it was a time that I was really so grateful to that maternity ward
cocoon support system to the attendants and the
hyper-vigilance of the doctors without being alarmist saying ‘you know –
we’re gonna get through this’ it’s gonna be alright’
and that was good – it pushed me through. So we got to know Dr. Seeva and some of
the other neonatology physicians pretty early, because the first two years
we went back every six months because they were preemies and
especially because Sam was so small they want to follow you up alot more.
And so that also is another thing that gives you a wonderful confidence
that if something’s not going right they’re going to tell us,
they’re going to find out. We won’t be eight years old and
suddenly find out that there’s a problem. The doctors and the nurses at the NICU
were really very, very special. It takes a kinds special dedication to work
in an area with such fragile infants and I think Dr. Seeva exemplifies that
very well. He’s a very bright man.
He really knows exactly how to save babies. He knows how to talk to the parents.
And that’s really quite wonderful. Sam has actually now turned out
to be the athlete from being such a tiny little thing.
He plays baseball. He runs. He’s very good at school. He has this great group of social friends.
Both of them have thrived. Every year Georgetown holds a reunion for
the graduates, as they call them, of the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit. As the boys got older,
I realized that they were doing so well. It was really important to the parents who
had other newborns, other neonates, who were preemies, who had problems, to see my boys doing so well
and to give them that hope. And positive outlook of what can be. As we were preparing
for Joel and Sam’s barmitsva we were looking at their portions
and what was important to them and Sam read the portion that talked
about the midwives that saved the Jewish baby boys including Moses
and the whole rest of the Bible story and he likened it to a phrase that says that,
if you save a life, it is as if you save the whole world,
and he says – when they saved these baby boys
just like when the neonatologists and the NICU saved me. I’m not sure where we would be today if the
boys hadn’t been born there. If they hadn’t been born at a place
that had that special intensive care. But, they have certainly done
the way they have, because they had that great early start.
Loaned to us from NHL and New York Rangers, directly from Madison Square Garden … Welcome, forward Mats Zuccarello and goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist! It’s like … When we told our crew here who we had booked for the show … They were so impressed! The Americans working here were so impressed. Last year we had Bruce Springsteen, and that was nothing … … compared to you being here now. You’ve got … … a life where you train a lot. As far as I know, you’ve arrived straight from training today. Which one of you spends the most time training? I think it’s me. No! No! It’s me. At least on a yearly basis. It’s like this. A lot of people talk about … … how much you train. But the important thing is really … … how you train. To have a high quality training. And that … I’m not saying that as a joke. But the older you get … It’s very important to have good quality training so you’re not out there too long. Both on the ice and in the gym, so when you’re there you always have a drive. So I guess I try to have a little more quality than Mats. So you’ve got quality training, and you’ve got quantity training? … But not with a very high quality? No, the quality isn’t very high. I do what’s fun! And there’s not much quality in that. Usually, at least. How is Zucca perceived … … in the New York Rangers? How does one speak about him, who is he? No, but he’s … An incredibly good team mate. Always … Happy, joking around, and he has a good energy … Works hard. And he’s been here so many years that he’s also become a leader figure in the team. It’s important that players like that work as hard as him. So he’s sending out good signals. But he likes to joke around and … To me, he’s a little like an annoying little brother, actually. On the ice. Why is that? The few times he actually scores in training, he’s always raising his arms in the air while yelling, and … … and show everyone that he’s scored a goal. It’s extremely annoying. He’s rubbing it in? Yeah, he rubs it in. Every time! But does that happen often, that you score? Yeah. It’s usually quite a lot. Is it easy to score with him? No, that’s why I cheer, because I’m one of the few people in the world who can score on Henke whenever I want! How is Henke perceived in the team? He’s «The King» for everyone else. Yeah, he is The King. He definitely is. He is the face of the Rangers and … Like he said … He is our best player. He’s been the Rangers’ best player the last 10-12 years. Without him, we wouldn’t have the success we’ve had. Not that we’ve won, but … We’ve come a long way. And like he says, he gets infuriated in trainings whenever someone scores, and … It’s that instinct that he has. Where he hates to lose, and hates to let goals in. He never quits on a puck. He’s got the winner instinct, and that’s … Like he said, when he’s our biggest guy, it’s important the he steps forward and shows that. Especially when it’s not going well. We’ve had a bad period and … … he takes charge and lets us know what he thinks, and people listen to him. He gets upset? He can get a little upset. He can. But that goes for all of us. But who is the rest of the team most afraid of? Of the two of you? That would be Henrik. He’s a little … … further up the ladder. When I get mad, I get mad. Yes. And it happens sometimes. But that can be a mixed blessing. There’s a lot at stake … And … I’m thinking about before a match, when you … When you have to get ready. There’s … as I’ve understood, a lot of rituals. What are those rituals? What kind of rituals do you have? What do you need to do every time? Every time! It’s actually quite a lot. When I get ready, I have to put on my gloves a certain way. I go through certain things in my head. You have to take on your gloves in a certain way? Yeah, you know, It’s always the catcher first, then the mask. I bend down, go through certain things in my head. I’ll always do the same, every time. And then … And then it’s tome to go out there, and I’ll get ready to go out there. But that procedure … … always happens, within every period. How about you? I guess it’s not as bad as him. I can be pretty annoying and … … bother him a lot, but on match day, I talk to him as little as possible. He’s not so social? Well, I’m sure he is, but I just … I do not want to be the reason he plays poorly. So I stay away from him on match days. So your ritual is really just not to speak to Henke? Yes. On match days. And then if we’ve won and he’s played I might bother him for letting in a goal … But before matches and during those days I try to keep away … I let him do his own thing, so that I won’t say or do anything wrong that makes him play poorly. But I … I’ve got a few rituals. I used to walk to the matches, because I lived quite close to Garden. I would always walk the same route if we won. And if we lost, I would change the woute, you know. But then … You become a bit crazy in the end. So you should relax a little with those things. So you would walk certain routes? Yeah, I would be like «last time, I went that direction, so now I have to go a small detour». But you become … … crazy in the end. So I’ve calmed down a little. I put on my right skate first. It’s not really a ritual, it’s … Like Henke says, it’s just a force of habit. It’s just how it’s become. And then you’ve got … With certain team mates you’ve got a hand shake here, and … … a little dance move with someone there, and then … The last thing …? What did you say? You dance? Yeah, we’ve always got music when we go out, and there’s a song at the end and then … … there’s a dance-off. And if that works, we just keep doing it until … … you lose, and then you change. A couple of years ago, when we had a long winning streak, we had a dance-off … Four-five of the guys were dancing to techno music, and … Are you a part of this? No, I’m somewhere completely different. He’s not there. He’s not mentally … … in the same world as us. When I’m in my own bubble, they’ll be having a dance-off. Because you want to be by yourself? Yes. It’s like Mats says, I’m very quiet on match days. I don’t talk a lot. So you’ll be moping in the corner, while you’re dancing? I’m keeping it loose, while he’s minding his own. Can you tell me about … Now that you’re so … … so prominent in the team … It hasn’t always been like that, you’ve both been rookies at one time … What’s the difference? Being a rookie in the New York Rangers, what do you have to put up with, what do you … It’s changed a little, you notice that some of the young guys coming in, they claim things in a different way. And our job is really to control this. But we don’t really do that, we just let it happen. Is it a little annoying? It’s just society in general … But for example, if it’s meal time, and then you go … … to get food, and there’s a rookie in front of you. Then I might say something. And for instance when we get to the plane, and some of the young people run on the plane first … … and we’re at the back waiting with our bags, that’s like … Times have changed. Times have changed! But that’s … And you’ve also got those who get it. Who’ll stand beside you and wait for their turn. But that doesn’t happen every time. That’s how it is. When I first joined the team as young … I remember the first time I trained with the Rangers, Henke wasn’t there … And I got a text message asking if I could shoot at Henke. I was staying at a hotel. And I was just like «whoah, am I gonna shoot at Henke» … I was scared of him. I was too afraid to speak to him. My shots were low. Close to the ice. I was scared of shooting higher. But I think that’s how it should be. Because you learn to respect others … … and your elders. Mats had a very serious injury. You got a fracture in your skull. And a bleeding in your brain. And I’m just wondering … From your perspective … I don’t know if you were there when it happened? Yeah, I played that match. What do you remember from that incident? Well, we didn’t quite realize …. How serious it was, when it happened. A lot of times, hockey players will get hit by both sticks, pucks and skates … … and … I didn’t quite get the full scale of it. It wasn’t before the match was over that we heard how serious it was. Mats can explain himself, but … The biggest shock came when I met Mats for the first time after … And he had difficulties talking. Then you really …. «Wow. This is …» It could’ve gone worse … But what happened was very serious, so that was a little … … scary. Did you go to the hospital? No, we were at home with the kids. But I remember that we facetimed with our daughter. Tried to joke around a little. I said to him that he usually is quite a handful on the ice anyways … So it’s quite pleasing that you can’t speak right now! I remember telling him that. Only as a joke, of course. And looking back, it’s wonderful that everything went well, but it was scary the first weeks. How do you look back on that incident? Has it changed you, and has it made you more afraid? No. I don’t feel that it has. The worst part was meeting the guys, and you could see that they just … What the f*ck is he … When I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t say one word and … So that was hard, but … It ended well. As we’ve said, it was … There were a few months that were a bit harder where I couldn’t move properly and … I couldn’t speak. I played the next season again and everything … Everything went well. Everything went well. You two live very different lives here in New York. You have a family life. You don’t have a family? I have a family. I have a mother and father. But you’re a bachelor in New York, or? Yeah. I don’t have a family life like his, with kids. So he’s actually a quite boring pal? Well, I think I would say that … Hockey players are pretty boring in general during season. You play four matches a week. And you don’t have the energy to do a lot of other stuff anyways. So you end up in the couch a lot, relaxing. Recovering after the matches. We’re not living a jetset life. How much time do you get on the couch, recovering and relaxing? Well, I can remember that time from before I had kids. But now it’s crazy. But we spend a lot of time together when we travel. We have 41 home matches, but we also have 41 matches away from home. So the team ends up being together. And then there’s also a lot of players who have … … their own kids. So when you’re at home, you try to … … spend time with them. But the last year and a half, it’s been more difficult for my oldest daughter to accept that I spend so much time away. And she’ll start crying when I leave, and I’ll try to explain … … that it’s my job and something that I want to do. But I’ll leave, and then she’ll forget. But the next time she’ll cry again. I didn’t realize how much we’re away before I had children. Life continued and … I did a lot of stuff. But now you realize how much you’re away, with the kids … You lose a lot of time. I thought we could finish up here with … I know that you’re both very competitive. So … I thought it might be cool to se you in action. But that would be a little difficult to arrange here. But if it’s okay with you guys, I’ve just got … One of those hockey games. Can we get that in here? And this … Now. Come here, come here. The thing is … We have got … Unfortunately. We’ve got Rangers players. And we’ve got Sweden. Okay. And we tried really hard to get Norway. But it was really hard. No one had one … With Norway. So this is the closest we’ll get. You have to be Rangers, and you have to be Sweden. That’s great! So … The goalie usually sits on the side! But what are you doing? Come on! Are you playing the round? Sick, huh? Oh my God! Okay. Okay. One. He just steered it in there. Here we go. He’s just trying to stall the time now! I don’t think you’re that good? But this isn’t what we play! And it’s just like in soccer, you have to kill the time. No! Lovely. Shouldn’t we say that … These are two of the best hockey players in the world! No! Time’s up! Yeah! Thank you so much! Henke and Zucca are going to Oslo and Ullevaal stadion next summer. And you can watch NHL matches in Stockholm in November.
I got the ball, I was driving left,
I did a hop step trying to hop step into a fade away, and
my leg, I guess, my knee just went in. And I didn’t know what it was for
two to three weeks because they were trying to do X rays and
the X rays wouldn’t show anything, so. Past that, it happened and
I’ve been pushing forward ever since. When I finally found out after thinking
it was general soreness, they told me, of course I was sad. Called my high school coach and
I just let him know and he talked me through it, and then I
had a conversation with my family and just got some inspiration from them and
to keep pushing and it’s not your last go.>>The car accident happened,
I guess, a few months after that. What exactly happened there? With the car accident?>>Yeah.
>>Just was driving. It was really early. I was headed to PT and the car hydroplanes
and, yeah, I got in the wreck.>>Was it dark or was it just?>>It was dark, yeah.>>What happened I was like,
this is crazy, I can’t catch a break. But the next day I had PT scheduled for
my knee, so I’m like, I’m definitely going and
I just got my mind right. And I wasn’t gonna let it stop me. My collarbone, that’s fully healed,
and my knee is getting there. I’m not sure when I’m gonna be back,
but I’m working at it. [BLANK_AUDIO]
130 days – that is how long Manuel Neuer was absent from the Bayern team due to the injury he sustained towards the end of the last season. Manuel, tell us about that period and also how it felt to return to the pitch and walk out with your team mates again? It was great to be able to play again. It was a really long time and honestly felt too long: I would have preferred to play earlier but it was important to come back properly and not just for one game and then have to take a break again. I want to keep playing now. You said you don’t want to have to take a break again. How fit are you? They say it takes as long to return to full fitness as the injury lasted. I hope that won’t be the case. You mentioned 130 days and at Bayern we can’t afford to wait another 130 days for my return. I need match practice now. Usually you begin a season with a few test matches to prepare well but now I started with the Bundesliga away game in Bremen. I need more matches to be at 100% but I feel very good in training already. The goalkeeping training is perfect and I hope the sessions will help me reach my level of play. Your team mates made your comeback quite easy for you. You didn’t concede a goal and overall the season has started well What do you think about the performances so far? The team has won all four competitive matches so are you completely happy? I think we showed a very good defensive performance against Bremen. We were a bit too open in the previous games and the match against Leverkusen could have ended 6:3. Sven Ulreich saved well but we stood too far apart and thus gave too many chances away. But this time we were more compact and showed a good defensive performance overall. I think we can be very happy with the four wins we have recorded so far. You might have to improve just a bit for the Champions League. What do you think about the group with Paris, Anderlecht and Celtic? The fans love it, what about the players? It’s definitely interesting and the away games in particular are obviously special for us. I I haven’t played in Paris yet, at least not with Bayern: I played in the Parc des Princes with the national team but not against PSG or Celtic and Anderlecht is a big, traditional club too. I find the challenges exciting and while I don’t expect the group to be easy we are Bayern and want to reach the knock-out stages. We’re all looking forward to the Champions League and to seeing you in goal more regularly in the near future. Thank you for joining us Manuel Neuer.
