BLOOD ON THE ICE
I'm just a hockey player.
I'm not famous. Not one of those guys who does commercials and sound bites. Or one of those the press give nicknames to, like 'The Great One' and 'The Next One'. Those guys, they sell skates and trucks and kids carry their pictures stuffed in their shirts. I'm… well, I guess I'm just lucky to be an NHL hockey player. I skate good enough to keep up, I can keep a puck on my stick in a rush, and my points stay on the plus side most years. But mostly I'm the meat at the end of a fist, what you fans call 'an enforcer', and that's okay with me.
