Poor Marian. Doesn't this have an SVU look to it? :(
Like I didn't cry enough yesterday, ESPN busts out with a weepy story about hockey players and their parents. Were the P&G moms commercials not enough? *cries*
"They said there were a lot of emotions involved," Johnson said. "They thought about all the 5 a.m. mornings, going to the rink, and actually I did too getting dressed. You kind of run through that -- everything that you went through to get here all the way back to when you're 5 years old to when you're 23 sitting in the Olympics. You can't help but think about things like that.
"To be able to share this with my family is real special. They're the reason I'm here, really. Without them, I wouldn't be here."
Also, why is he 23 with a 11 year old brother? SURPRISE!!! I thought it was weird he was always referred to as "little" instead of "younger", but no. They literally meant "little" brother.
OMG maybe his brother runs his website! That would explain a lot.
Also, he's apparently in his 4th NHL season. I've done a really good job of ignoring someone who plays in my division for over 3 years. :P In general I see the Kings as a vampire (Anze Kopitar) leading his horde of enthralled human minions so that contributes to it.
