I know I savaged him when he smashed Galloway with his elbow (Hoppa the Hyena) and was relieved at retirement being forced on him, but .... Even at that time there was a lot of comment about him being a devoted father and family man and anyone reading the Sun Herald stories on John and William this morning could not help but be impressed with the man as a father. Perhaps fatherhood, and bringing up well adjusted children, is the hardest and most rewarding task a man can aspire to. And Hoppa seems to have done an exceedingly good job of it if William is any guide. Well done Hoppa, William is no pup.
