Full of Maki goodness
Globe and Mail columnist Al Maki is one of those guys young scribes like me aspire to be, and yesterday was a banner day for the veteran sportswriter. Maki, in effect, wrote the entire sports front, penning two great stories: One on the Seattle Seahawks' Canadian long snapper J.P. Darche and the second on Ed Jovanovski bowing out from the Canadian Olympic men's hockey team.
(I may be a day behind in posting this, but it's great stuff nonetheless.)
Speaking of the Jovanovski news, add the name of Ottawa Senators defenceman Chris Phillips to the list of contenders (Dan Boyle, Scott Hannan, Jay Bouwmeester and Dion Phaneuf) to replace any injured members of Canada's ailing blueline.
