Super Mario hospitalized
I'd hate to be the first to say it, but I can't see Mario Lemieux suiting up for Canada at the Olympics anymore. Lemieux was taken to a local hospital today in Pittsburgh after he had an irregular heartbeat in this morning's practice.
Some had been calling for him to bow out as Steve Yzerman did earlier, but personally I think the selection committee still had every intention of taking him to the Games.
Mario had been complaining of fatigue and some sort of illness earlier in the week, so let's hope this is more a precautionary visit than anything.
