Tampa Bay Lightning founder Phil Esposito said he is expecting the phone at his Tampa home to ring at any moment. On the other end will be his daughter, Carrie, calling from Germany to say the reports of her death were all a cruel joke.
"I'm really having major difficulties with this," Esposito told the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday. "I'm just in total shock. I cannot believe it even as I sit and talk to you. I expect her to call me and say, "April fool.' "
