I woke up the other morning (not something I like to do often), to the sounds of Morning Edition on the local NPR station here in Charlotte, NC. They were talking about the various scandals that are rocking the sports world, except for hockey. They even acknowledge the now squeaky clean image hockey has at the moment. Remember when hockey was the bad boy of sports? Remember when fighting was the problem? Now, well, at least we aren’t running pit bulls. Or it’s only Assistant Coaches betting on games.
Listen to the story by going here. If you don’t want to listen to the whole thing, fast forward to the last 45 seconds or so. Hockey fans will just shake their heads.
