There weren't many people who weren't touched in some way by the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, and that goes for the sports world as well.

Congrats to the Kings

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and their Stanley Cup. I hadn't got a chance to say that on this site quite yet, and I offer many apologies for that fact.
