Kukla's Korner Hockey

from The Other Paper,
Nash, an alternate captain, spent less than three minutes Sunday answering questions about the Jackets’ ineffective power play. Then the media horde—all seven reporters—moved across the room to see what team captain Adam Foote had to say.
In contrast, just three miles or so to the north, five times that number of reporters gather for comments from Ohio State’s quarterback every week. In fact, more reporters gang up on OSU’s third-string running back than on Nash at home games.
Playing hockey in Columbus is no way to become a celebrity. If Nash were playing in Canada, there’s no doubt he’d have fame to match his $5.5 million salary. It’s common for 30 TV cameras to crowd into Air Canada Centre in Toronto after Maple Leafs games.
