I know of only two politicians who were hockey players: Ken Dryden, one of the NHL greats in net, is presently a member of Parliament in Canada; and John Kerry, forward on century-old hockey-playing tradition-filled St. Paul's varsity team, is running for U.S. President. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=merron/kerry/040726 "He was the kind of guy ... you know what a 'rink turn' is? When the puck starts going the other way, you're supposed to jam on the brakes and sprint back. If you're lazy, you don't stop and start; you do a rink turn. And John was the kind of guy that would do rink turns. But he'd sort of look cool doing it. And he was a good stick handler, and a good passer -- when he wanted to pass." What other politicians used to play the greatest game on earth?
