from the Detroit News,

Editor's note: As coronavirus sweeps the globe, shutting down so many entertainment options including sports, we thought this would be a good opportunity for you to get to know a little bit about us. Up today: Red Wings beat writer Ted Kulfan, who can be followed on Twitter @tkulfan. Also, check out Kulfan's weekly OctoPulse Podcast at detroitnews.com.

1. I attended and graduated from Dearborn Fordson and Wayne State University. While at Fordson, my senior year, we went 19-2 during basketball season (I was stuck mainly on the bench) and won the regional championship in track and field (I contributed points in the long jump; sixth in regionals) and the 800-meter relay (we were sixth, also, I think).

2. I also had the city of Dearborn’s best time in the 100 and 200 meters that season for a period of time* (*wind aided), but looking at the mirror, yes, that was 35 years and 80 pounds ago.

3. Except for a month during Christmas in college working at a toy store, and doing some work in high school for a catering firm, every penny I’ve ever earned has come from newspapers.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
