IRAQ Hockey Player


IRAQI HOCKEY PLAYER

The Detroit Red Wings foreign scout flies to Baghdad
to watch a young Iraqi play hockey in the new American
sponsored league and is suitably impressed and
arranges for him to come over to the US .

Ken Holland signs him to a one year contract and the
kid joins the team for the preseason.

Two weeks later the Wings are down 4-0 to the
Blackhawks with only 10 minutes left. Mike Babcock
gives the young Iraqi the nod and he goes in.
The kid is a sensation - scores 5 goals in 10 minutes
and wins the game for Wings! The fans are delighted,
the players and coaches are delighted
and the media love the new star.

When the player comes off the ice he phones his mom to
tell her about his first day of NHL hockey. "Hello
mom, guess what?" he says in an Iraqi accent. "I
played for 10 minutes today, we were 4-0 down, but I
scored 5 goals and we won. Everybody loves me, the
fans, the media, they all love me."

Wonderful," says his mom, "Let me tell you about my
day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed,
your sister and I were ambushed,
raped and beaten and your brother has joined a gang of
looters, and all while you were having such great
time." The young Iraqi is very upset.

"What can I say mom, but I'm so sorry."

"Sorry? You're Sorry?" says his mom,
"It's your fault we moved to Detroit in the first place!"
