Asian Invasion

Templar Fightin' Monk Lindros The Department of Redundancy Department Fukufuji

I would probably be remiss if I didn't mention two of the NHL free-agent signings from yesterday: the Toronto Maple Leafs signing Eric Lindros to a 1 year, $1.55 million deal, which is great because it means the Rangers won't have to worry about him anymore (or at least Ranger fans won't), and the Los Angeles Kings signing Japanese goalie Yutaka Fukufuji to a 2-year deal, which is great because it means that we once again have an excuse to say the name of our favorite Asian athlete (yep: Taiwanese golfer Virada Nirapathpongporn).

I'm not talking, not talking... still not talking Nirapathpongporn

Nirapathpongporn is Thai because She's from Thailand.

You're right-- she's from Bangkok, Thailand, and not Taiwan as I mistakenly put it.

She graduated from Duke University, also. I wonder if the student newspaper there ever found a way to fit Krzyzewski and Nirapathpongporn into the same sentence?
