Valeri Zelepukin: Scored a few big goals in real life (his '94 goal could have been one of the all-time biggest goals in Dev's history if OT played out differently), but the main factor here is his performance for me in EA sports NHL '94. I played that game endlessly and would usually have a top line of zelepukin-holik-richer.

That's a good one.

He was a very good but not great player, but I loved Mickey Shuler, the Jets' tight end in the 1980s. And linebacker Lance Mehl was another favorite of mine.

 

An example of a player who was average to below average but I really liked anyway was Mike Pagliarulo, Yankee third basemen in the 1980s.

 

It's hard to come up with an example from the Devils because I became a fan in early adulthood, but I loved Bobby Holik and loved to hate Lyle Odelein.

Yea, uber-PC people, and those of us who spend our time in urban studies and community planning academia. If you want to see a sh!thole, take a ride around the "downtown" of whatever hell suburb you come from.

Why do you think we, or our parents and grandparents who moved there, are in the suburbs? It's to escape "vibrant diversity."
