I just grabbed a press release here in Pittsburgh (and saw up on NHL.com) that said that John Davidson will receive the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame!!
The Foster Hewitt is a pretty big deal, showing that the hockey world recognizes what we in New York knew for years: J.D. did an incredible job covering hockey. So congrats go out to J.D. for an honour well deserved.
On a side note, a few feet away from me Joe Micheletti just got a blueberry muffin. He wasn't given it. He wasn't bestowed it by a panel of peers as a reward for work well done. He just picked it up off of the breakfast table.
