Karl Alzner Arrives in D.C.


(By Marc Serota - Getty)

Over the summer, I wrote about some of Caps prospect Karl Alzner's superstitions and good luck charms and the rest, including his tendency to make wishes at 11:11.

"I don't just make one [wish], I make as many as I can think of at the time," he told me then. "I have three standard ones, that I can't say because I want them to come true, and then I have ones like making sure I have a safe flight. Or I win the lottery. Things like that."

Well, Alzner got called up to the bigs today, and in his brief remarks to reporters, 11:11 came up again.

"You know what, Sami got called off the ice earlier in the day and I knew what the situation was up here," Alzner said. "I knew that there was a lot of guys hurt. And I know a few of you have heard about my 11:11 wishing, and I always make multiple wishes. Well, that day was just one wish, and it was to get called up, and I got called up later that night."

Good for Alzner, and good for me, since he now becomes by a factor of 18 the team's most bloggable player. I lost most of my previous interview, which included long discussions of Alzner's homemade hats and special banana smoothies and shopping trips to U.S. department stores, which is near tragic, but at least he's back in town, so smoothies are back on the table as appropriate lines of questioning.

I'm thinking about starting a blog that follows Steinberg (nerd) around. Your voice = teenage nerd who works at the Quickie Mart in the Simpsons.
