News Link: Scott Burnside’s feature on Rich Clune

ESPN.com’s Scott Burnside wrote an eye-opening piece that premiered earlier today revealing the off-ice battles fought by former Los Angeles King and current Nashville Predator Rich Clune. I was going to say that all Kings fans should read this story, but that would be selling it short. This is a must-read for all sports fans.

From ESPN.com:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It’s the spring of 2010. Rich Clune is sitting on the Los Angeles Kings’ bench in the first round of the playoffs as the Kings take on the Vancouver Canucks.

The Toronto native is in the NHL. He’s on “Hockey Night in Canada.” He’s living the dream.

Except his legs are cramping up because he’s not sleeping and he’s not eating properly; he hasn’t for a long time, in fact.
