Posted March 10, 2010
I haven't seen the Matt Cooke hit and I don't care to. This blog is not about whether or not it was a clean hit.

Best Hockey MemoriesPlaying outdoor hockey in -25 degree weather and not feeling cold at all; playing for the city championship in roller hockey with a broken nose and still going 4-for-4 on faceoffs and getting the hat trick;
As a hockey player, I compare to...Dan Boyle - I may not have his moves, but I definitely think and see the game the same way.
