A Different Look At The Late Derek Boogaard

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,

I don’t know where I’m going to go with this blog to be honest. In fact, my cursor has been flickering in this spot for about three hours, it’s 3 a.m. and I’m still sickened.

Even as I start typing now, my eyes are watering. So maybe that’s my answer.

I’m supposed to be a professional, but I’m also human. In my role, you cover players professionally, but you get to know them personally.

Like many of you, I was floored and saddened by tonight’s tragic news. But I’ve thought about this a lot the last few hours, and I want to do my best to not make this a tear jerker.

I want to give you a different perspective to Derek Boogaard from someone who covered him.
