More Soccer-Hockey Karma

While my much-hoped-for DCU team visit to a Caps game didn't exactly happen, hawk-eyed reader Todd spotted DCU midfielder Clyde Simms and a female companion at Friday's Thrashers game.

"They stayed for the entire time and appeared to enjoy themselves," Todd writes. "And my wife and I are pretty sure we're the only ones who recognized him. (During a break, I leaned forward and asked, "Excuse me, I don't mean to bother you, but are you Clyde Simms?" He smiled and said that he was, and we wished him good luck on Sunday.)"

The more pessimistic among you (Goat) might argue that DCU players should have steered far clear of the Caps until their own postseason was finished.

And in more soccer news, I just spotted four or five members of the Ottawa Senators having a kickabout with a dead-looking soccer ball in a back tunnel of the phone booth. There appeared to be some rules to the game, which I didn't entirely understand, although blasting the ball into walls seemed to be encouraged. But apparently this is something of a team tradition in Ottawa., one which Brian Pothier is apparently attempting to bring to the Caps. It goes without saying that I'll have more on this later.
