Hockey This and That

by Lisa Ovens

December is such a busy time of year, especially when the Olympics are now just weeks away. Keeping up with all of the sports news is a tall order for anyone.
That's why we have Hockey This and That: these are some stories that are capturing my attention right now...

  Markus Naslund: Sportman of the Year

Being a big fan of Markus Naslund I was happy to read this New York Post article written by Larry Brooks naming Naslund Sportman of the Year. Throughout the end of Naslund's time in Vancouver I was often furious with the way fans and media treated the Canucks highest scorer of all time (346 goals- 756 points). Naslund's work on the ice revived Vancouver's passion for Canucks hockey. His work off the ice helped change lives.

This is a good read for the true fans of Markus Naslund.

When asked about Tiger Woods, Lisa said...

"I don't really care," she said. "Let's talk about Hockey."

"I don't think anybody really watches Tiger Woods any more."

Winter Classic

New Years Day isn't far away
Dan is the Man
and he'll make the ice
so Fenway Park will look really nice

Yes, my Winter Classic Poem is kind of lame, but the event is far from it. The third Winter Classic features the Philadelphia Flyers vs. The Boston Bruins playing an outdoor game at Fenway Park on January 1st, 2010. And World famous ice maker, Dan Craig arrives in Boston today to get started on the rink.
