Praise The NHL

from Terry Frei of ESPN,
Emphasize what an amazing phenomenon it is that players from around the globe -- Russians, Czechs, Swedes, Finns -- understand the magic of the Stanley Cup and seem to get just as intoxicated in its presence as a guy from Swift Current, Fort McMurray or St. Paul. Continue to take the world view. Brag about it. Celebrate it. Don't apologize for it, to anyone. Play not just to the current NHL constituency, but try to join a new wave of intelligent, world-view fans who might be disgusted with the "me-first, don't-get-respect" attitudes in other sports, even those with some international flavor on their rosters.
