A Must Read About Ottawa's Emery
Ever wanted to know more about Ray Emery, the goaltender behind Ottawa's postseason run? It's all in this great column by Damien Cox, who writes for the Toronto Star and ESPN.com.
He is the NHLer who refuses to fit in, yet refuses to be typecast as the nut, the rebel, the hip-hop gangsta or the Great Tattooed Goalie. (He has eight. Or more.) He won $500 by eating a cockroach last season on a bet with captain Daniel Alfredsson, but as a boy he used to daydream about being an architect and took trips to the library to gaze upon architecture books. He defies easy description and seems to take pleasure in throwing those who seek to analyze him as a person or an athlete off the scent.
Read the whole thing. You won't be sorry.
