An Uncommon Bond

From today's Miami Herald ...

As they skated around the Iroquois Park Arena, their scrawny bodies swimming in oversized sweaters and pads, they never imagined they would still be playing together at age 40, in the second year of twin $4.5 million contracts.

Two players from the same kiddie team winding up in the NHL is remarkable enough, but the story of Nieuwendyk and Roberts is even more astonishing because they have been teammates for 23 of the past 35 years. It would be virtually impossible to find two athletes in any sport who have played side by side that long.
Yay! my Joey!
