Couldn't Have Happened to a Nicer Guy

June 11, 2001

Just a quick one today: Congratulations to the Colorado Avalanche, and especially Ray Borque, for winning the Stanley Cup in Game Seven on Saturday night.

For the non-hockey fan, Ray Borque is the ultimate fan-favorite underdog. Before Saturday night he had played more than 1,800 games without winning hockey's ultimate prize. That's 22 years -- there were members of the opposing team who were born after he began playing.

All he ever did was go out and play his heart out for more than two decades. And he's finally gotten his reward.
