Long-time Washington Capitals season ticket holder, and longer-time fan. Attended my first NHL game in 1979 at the age of 5. I have been playing ice hockey as a goalie for over 20 years, coaching, referee, and goalie coach as well. I truly enjoy the game of hockey.
Sad News, Yet Honored Respective :
Lou Gehrig has somehow been forgotten amongst the game’s immortals, even though he was possibly even more of a reason for the success of Ruth’s 1927 Yankees. Read about the quiet, forgotten leader of “Murderer’s Row,” Henry Lou Gehrig.
Thanks in advance!

Scott, thanks for the edit.
Thanks for the input on the Ovechkin article. I think part of the problem with writing an editorial like that is the Crosby backlash among the avid hockey fans. I understand it completely; the NHL jams 87 down everyone's throats constantly. He happens to deserve most of it, but I do think the league has to diversify its promotional efforts. Ovechkin is the perfect foil for Crosby and the NHL needs to take advantage of it.
Personally, I'm just flabbergasted I got 600+ reads on that thing. Who knew?
