PLAYERS: Jason Spezza
TEAMS: Ottawa Senators
The Wall Street Journal reports that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made a wager with Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird ahead of tonight's Game 1 of the Rangers/Senators Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series. If the Rangers win, Baird must wear New York blue. If the Senators prevail, Clinton must don Ottawa red."I'm pretty confident that you'll look good in blue," said Clinton, who represented New York in the U.S. Senate.Baird said he'd give Clinton the jersey of his favorite player, center Jason Spezza, if the Senators win. "You can wear it around the house," he told her....i'm usually not a Hillary guy, but that's pretty awesome....h/t to reader Andrea G.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
