Mr. Cox, You're Up!
Alexander Ovechkin, the player who will be continually linked with Sidney Crosby under the Magic Johnson / Larry Bird corollary, pots the goal that sends Canada home without a medal.
Ovechkin scores on a power play that was a direct result of a horrible penalty taken by Todd Bertuzzi.
Damien Cox lobbied hard for Crosby to be on this team, and - in all likelihood - would have preferred Wayne Gretzky leave a roster spot open; if it meant leaving Bertuzzi off of it.
Somewhere in Turin, Italy, Mr. Cox is feverishly tapping a keyboard. This is his Truman Capote moment. Prepare yourself for stinging prose, draping adjectives and flaming conjecture masked as analytical method.
Just remember to take deep breaths when you read his column tomorrow morning and are swept up by the urge to pee all over the newspaper. SA
