Oh my locker room fantasy

opinion

Disney is getting out of the pro sports team business. Despite the Angels winning the World Series last October, and the Ducks being 10 wins away from a Stanley Cup title, it's difficult to make money in sports where there is no salary cap. Both teams have been for sale for some time. The Angels are close to changing hands, while the Ducks are still looking for someone to pay their Disney also owns ESPN.

We do a little better on the financial side of things and probably won't be sold anytime soon. No Ducks hats, Ducks t-shirts Oh my locker room fantasy Ducks jumper cables. So, there is no mandate to write about or talk about the Ducks any more than any other NHL team. It should be obvious when a team starts its postseason run against Detroit and Dallas, winners of four of the last six Stanley Cups, they deserve any ink they get, even if it's from a subsidiary of Disney Inc.

So, without really looking into this yet, let's see what the Ducks and Angels have in common besides their owners and a possible unexpected championship:.

The Stanley Cup final Oh my locker room fantasy at the Chop House restaurant in Denver is still my most surreal hockey memory. It was image overload. I can still see Adam Foote bringing the Cup into the back room. Peter Forsberg taking a picture of it with his dad.

Me taking a picture with the Cup and former Masters champ Craig Stadler, and still never seeing a copy of it. Meeting Chris Drury in the bathroom and him later telling me that one of his friends said after, "Hey, that's the twisted wrister guy! Perhaps the most indelible image was seeing Shjon Podein walk into the restaurant in full equipment.

Say goodbye to the talking...

From head to toe, he had on what he had on when the buzzer sounded on Game 7 and the Avs won the Cup over the Devils a few hours before. So, for this week's Great 8, I called Shjon's cell phone. This is the message left, word for word, on his voice mail when I called him on Monday:. And if you get a little nervous or worried. Please, don't come looking for me.

Oh my locker room fantasy be just fine. What was the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Plant tour like and what did you learn?

You think there is a heaven on earth and then you go there and you know there is. I needed some time to really soak it in and I don't mean the building.
