Say this carefully: Kunitz
Do not forget to pronounce the 'i' when you tell all of your friends that Chris Kunitz is likely back for tonight's ever so important Game 3 between your Anaheim Ducks and the Ottawa Senators (NBC @ 5 pm).
Who is this Chris Kunitz fellow? He's like the bread in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He's like the ice in a gin and tonic. He's like the third part of something that has 3 parts.
He is actually the third component of Anaheim's top line that also features Andy McDonald and Teemu Selanne. Chris busted his wrist during the last series and was told he was gone for the season. But in just another example of how passionate these hockey players are, he's back and desperate to compete.
In anthem news, Alanis will be belting out the anthems for Game 4 on Monday night. Which Alanis who you say? I'm sure you have a good idea, but since there is only one Alanis in Canada, it is not necessary to employ a last name. Tonight the giant police officer will be doing his thing. Watch for the wink and the smile and the end. It's awesome. If only police officers were this affable every time I have a run in with them.
