Ian Lapierriere finishes triathalon after all

The part of me that's a hockey fan thinks that this is amazing, and the part of me that gets light sensitivity headaches seven years after suffering a severe concussion thinks that this is nuts: last week, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reported that former Philadelphia Flyer Ian Laperriere was pulling out of an Ironman Triathilon because he'd crashed his bike and suffered a...
