The ‘C’ Is Supposed To Mean Something

from Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

They put the captain’s C right there on the jersey, and in hockey, it is actually supposed to mean something. One thing it means is that when things aren’t going well, that letter becomes a bull’s-eye.

The captain, more than the other players, has to answer for a team’s occasional failings. He has to take more responsibility for getting his teammates ready to play, as if that small block letter could actually accomplish it.

Mike Richards, the Flyers’ current captain, has had an interesting and not entirely enjoyable week, and the letter has burned him like a branding iron at times.
