Caps Trades: The Blogging Implications

I hate to immediately rush to the gutter, but that's what the medium requires. And so what, from a prototypical blogging standpoint, was the most important development from yesterday's flurry of trades? Duh. From an old Sergei Fedorov profile:

His life no longer unfolds on gossip pages - ex-wife Anna Kournikova and ex-girlfriend Tara Reid are tumultuous memories.

Well, maybe they're just memories to him, but they still count from a blogging standpoint. They always count. The number of notable wives/girlfriends/ex-wives whom our market has been able to claim in recent months is unprecedented, what with Aaron Boone's Playboy model wife and Paul Lo Duca's ex-Playboy model wife and current pop star girlfriend and Ovechkin's Internet girlfriend and now this. In honor of the occasion, let's review some of Fedorov's comments on the matter, from a 2005 interview with

Q: How did the relationship with Anna progress to being more than friends?

A: It was a turning point. We spent quite a few days together. Anna expressed that kind of [romantic] interest, I was kind of surprised because I was a little bit older and wilder than her and I was going in a different direction. But I looked at the situation and said she was a great person, so why not? So, then we started dating. It was tough because her schedule had her based all over the world and I played games in so many different cities.

Q: Do you feel people are still misinformed about your marriage to Anna?

A: They shouldn't be. I have said it before, we were married and we are divorced now. We were married for about a year.

Q: How did you meet former girlfriend Tara Reid?

A: We met through mutual friends in Los Angeles. We met up again in Miami at the MTV Music Awards. We hung out for a while before we started dating. A lot of people come to Miami to relax and party a little bit.

Q: She is known as the ultimate party girl. Is that a fair reputation?

A: I don't think so. She just got that rep. She was at the wrong place at the wrong time. She has fun, but that's all.

Q: What was your first date with Tara like?

A: [Laughs] I will leave that to us. Some things are personal.

Also, in Montreal, Cristobal Huet and David Aebischer were known as the wine-and-cheese duo. Huet was wine, but still.

Total trade deadline grade: 103 out of 100.

Hey Dan, if you're in town Saturday night stop by RFD's before the Caps game for the Barra Brava blowout.

Good for the Caps. Now like the Lakers, the camera can pan the stands when the games get slow. Federov is on a roll and my hero.
