Thursday morning I had the chance of a lifetime. The Thrashers were hosting their mite and Squirt hockey school in Duluth and I was asked if I was interested in suiting up as a goalie and taking some shots from the kids. Never one to turn down a good story idea I jumped at the chance to strap on the pads, despite the fact that I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. Did I mention that I’d never played hockey, let alone as a goalie?... A few reckless and unorthodox pad saves later I pointed out to Darren Eliot that I was having some rebound control issues. He just laughed and said, “You have to stop the first shot to give up a rebound, so consider it progress.”read on Can you figure out which one is the Web Guy?
