Sports Corner – February 26, 2020

Let’s hear it for David Ayres, the operations manager and occasional Zamboni driver who became the emergency goalie for the Carolina Hurricanes and also became a star.  At least for a few days.  It’s the sort of story they make Disney films about, and it’s all true!


  • The ‘Canes went and traded for a non-emergency goalie, one of a record 32 trades made by the NHL deadline on Monday.
  • Markieff Morris signs with the Lakers and might share an apartment with his brother Marcus, currently a Clipper
  • Yankees starter Luis Severino needs Tommy John surgery
  • Will the NFL and the players reach an agreement on a new contract with a 17 game season no one but the owners wants?
  • Thibodeau the next Knicks coach?  Really?  Really?

As always, all sports subjects welcome.
