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 ESPN.com.
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.
