Hockey Sticks: A Love Story
For those of you with subscriptions to ESPN.com or ESPN the Magazine, I highly suggest you read 'To Each His Own', a story on NHL players and their hockey sticks. As goofy as we amatures are with our sticks, NHL players (with a seemingly endless supply of free sticks) are an entirely different monster. Blow torches, belt sanders, hack saws, spray paint and varieties of hockey tape are their tools of the trade, and their use them to custromize their sticks for their particular skill set. And their sticks often last less than 2 games a piece.
