With the latest sports news focusing on the Alex Rodriguez and Lance Armstrong scandals, it is refreshing to hear of a group of local hockey players who share an inspiring story.
While most of us tend to take for granted the sounds of hockey, the men of Team USA preparing to play in this April’s Deaf Olympic Games, have developed their own ways to succeed. Some of New England’s most talented hockey players created their own tricks to communicate on the ice — a shortened form of sign language that doesn’t even require them to remove their gloves.
But the men of Team USA aren’t just playing for gold this spring, they are also hoping to inspire and attract kids who are hearing impaired and build a dynasty. They will take on Canada in the first round of the Deaf Olympic Games in Finland beginning at the end of March.
Check out some of America’s greatest hockey players in the video above.

Reports now allege that Anthony Bosch, the director of the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, would travel to Alex Rodriguez's home and personally inject him with PEDs.
Alex Rodriguez is showing plenty of perseverance. Or maybe he just really likes money. Either way, we shouldn’t be so quick to write off A-Rod’s career. Rodriguez has “no plans” to retire from baseball, according to the New York Daily News. Rodriguez had hip surgery earlier this offseason and was already expected to miss a big chunk of 2013, but his future became even cloudier...
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was injected
with performance-enhancing drugs as recently as last spring by Anthony Bosch,
operator of the now-infamous Biogenesis of America clinic in south Florida,
according to an “Outside the Lines” report.
The texts, the source said, usually came late at night,
telling Anthony Bosch to come to the house. Bosch would...
There has been speculation that the New York Yankees will
attempt to void third baseman Alex Rodriguez’s remaining contract due to use of
performance-enhancing drugs and his hip injury. However, the team knows there
is little chance of voiding Rodriguez’s contract, an act termed “unrealistic”
by David Waldstein of The New York Times.
The Yankees can dream of getting...
The disturbing allegations of PED usage are just getting worse and more detailed for Alex Rodriguez. By now this story has been covered by almost every angle and in most cases it feels like we are in a space-time continuum that has warped us back to 2005.
At this point fans of Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees don’t need to hear an apology, they don’t need to hear agents or PR...
The news just gets more and more disappointing for baseball fans. We recently learned of a big doping lab in Miami, Florida. Today, a report from ESPN says that Biogenesis boss Anthony Bosch personally injected Alex Rodriguez with performance-enhancing drugs. According to the report, Rodriguez got personal treatment - secretive...
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to play for the Yankees this season and possibly beyond, according to the New York Daily News.
No matter what happens with Rodriguez's new steroid allegations, the Yankees may just cut ties with the beleaguered third baseman. According to numerous sources, A-Rod's hip injury could derail his career and could limit...
On Tuesday, the Miami New Times reported that Alex Rodriguez had been receiving performance enhancing drugs from a wellness clinic in Miami, Florida. This really blows if you are a New York Yankee fan because that means you have to defend the Yankees’ 2009 World Series championship against people that will say it was tainted. It also blows because A-Rod has definitely not been...
I feel pretty bad for Natasha and Ella Rodriguez these days. The daughters of Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez probably don’t know much about what’s going on with dear ol’ dad. Good thing, too. Imagine what lessons they’d be learning if they were still living with him: “Now girls, it’s OK to cheat, especially [...]
Alex Rodriguez is denying allegations that he received performance-enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis company, but the evidence against him is mounting.
On Tuesday, the Miami New Times reported that A-Rod was one of many MLB players who ordered performance-enhancing drugs (in many cases testosterone) from the now-defunct Biogenesis company. Their report was based on...
In the famous words of Dr. House, everybody lies. This may be a cynical way of
looking at sports, but at this point we shouldn’t want superlatives and heroism attached
to any athlete. There’s no need for it. Why can’t athletes just be marveled for their
We’re always searching for the next “feel good story’. It’s not just enough that a team
The business of baseball is a lot tougher to grasp than the dynamics of “on-the-field” play. As fans, we look at the end result of every decision made. Did he sign? Who did we trade? When was he drafted?
Rarely do we get to see what happens behind closed doors.
Recently, the injury of Alex Rodriguez has brought about questions regarding the insurance of a player’s contract...
A-Rod Faces Media
I don’t spend much time defending the New York Yankees. As a Boston Red Sox fan, I readily yell “Yankees S***!” at Fenway Park. I think the Yankee organization is actually evil incarnate: that those who wear pinstripes to play baseball are inherently the devils of the diamond. I think that Aaron Boone has an unmentionable middle name, and that Johnny Damon...
So is anyone sick of talking about Alex Rodriguez yet?
Since the answer to that question is probably yes, here is some more Yankee news that should interest fans. On Thursday, the Yankees and former Cleveland Indian Travis Hafner agreed to a one year deal worth about $2 million which could turn to $4 million based on plate appearances. Hafner is expected to fill the role that...
