From The Dear Mr. Sports Sidekick Section of SportsSphere Magazine
Dear Mr. Sports Sidekick: How come we always hear quotes about baseball, football, basketball, and soccer but we hardly ever hear any quotes about hockey?
Just this morning I heard on one of the local radio sports stations here in Fargo, North Dakota that recently divorced baseball super star Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees was quoted as saying, "Well now that my divorce from Cynthia is final, I guess I should say that I'm lucky that I got to keep all of my bats, my gloves, my cleats, and my balls."
Two days ago I heard that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was asked if he thought that his girlfriend, Jessica Simpson was really as pretty as most men think and Tony replied, "Well let me put it this way, in my book, she'll definitely make it to the playoffs!" So Mr. Sports Sidekick how about giving me some hockey quotes, okay?
