from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,
Next Wednesday (on Versus) is the episode featuring Seau as an equipment manager for the Washington Capitals. He spoke with us recently about working that sports job, gauging the toughness of hockey players and the impression Alex Ovechkin(notes) made on him. That, along with talk about his three days as a reporter for Sports Illustrated, concussions in the NFL and NHL and attempting to be a TV star after football. Oh, and a strange moment involving man-on-man tickling. Enjoy.
On a player to player basis, who has more equipment: Football or hockey?
Oh, definitely a hockey player. There’s so much more going on. They wear leotards underneath those pads.
What’s that one stud’s name?
Yeah, Alex. Watching him, you’d think that he would be a prima donna. That guy is a jokester. He lightens it up. The reason why the Capitals are doing so well is basically because the guy puts it in perspective. He’s not bigger than anybody on that team, and he cares for the players in that locker room, which I got to see firsthand.
