Let’s hear it for #22!

Here’s one more way Brian Leetch and I are alike (not the record part – the last bit) :

“Boston’s Brian Leetch scored in the first period and assisted on Nick Boynton’s goal in the second to become the seventh defenseman — and 69th player — in NHL history to reach 1,000 career points.

‘I hope they don’t mention I was on the ice for all four goals in the loss,’ said Leetch, taking care of that himself. ‘Hopefully they won’t remember that, because that was disappointing.’ ”

In other news, just so I remember later that I came up with the idea, I think I’m going to make a “Greatest Hits” sort of category for the site. I was searching back through the archives trying to figure out when I last went to the optometrist (still no idea) and I discovered I used to be a comic genius. Go figure.
