Taking One For The Team
Not sure how many of you saw this in today's print edition of The Post, so I thought I'd blog it, too. I interviewed Quintin Laing about blocking shots for a weekly feature called "What it feels like..."
Here's some of what Laing had to say:
For guys, there's just that one spot you don't want to get hit. One time last year, I got hit on the collarbone by a slap shot. That hurt a lot and it scared me because it was so close to my throat. The most painful place is on the boot or on the toe, that's why I lay down -- so I can get it on a fleshy part.
This one got me on the ribs stung [he pulls up his shirt]. About 20 seconds later, I got this one [he pulls up his shorts].
You've got to admire a guy who intentionally throws himself in harms way. Read the whole interview here.
