From Columbus Alive:
On our City Limits blog at ColumbusAlive.com, we’ve been writing a lot about Columbus’ quest for some sort of marketable identity. So we couldn’t resist this telling tidbit, reported by Tom Reed in Saturday’s Dispatch:
Ken Hitchcock’s most humbling moment as Blue Jackets coach came in this radiant city on the Pacific Coast [Vancouver, British Columbia].
Hitchcock was trying to clear Canadian customs last summer when the agent asked him his occupation. He told the man he coached the NHL franchise in Columbus.
The agent grew suspicious and countered by saying, “There’s no NHL team in Columbus.”
