Bug’s story getting more exposure

Two days ago, I wrote about how the story of Zach “Bug” Bennett had gotten some exposure on ESPN.  Again, I’ll urge everyone to watch the nine minute clip here.

Tonight, that story is going to get some more attention in the major US media.  The story will be highlighted during tonight’s ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.  Set your DVRs.  Tune in.  Whatever.  It’s a great story about a great kid.  In the end, it really has very little to do with hockey and much more to do with human kindness.

In North Carolina, all seven games of the Eastern Conference final between the Checkers and the Binghamton Senators will be broadcast on Time-Warner Digital Cable.  That series begins tonight at 7:00, and all games will be on channel 520 statewide.
