Today, the NHLPA is supposed to make its counter-proposal. So stay tuned to the widget over there—————>

Here is Kevin Allen’s story from USA Today. [1]

I think some of you might be interested in what I’m doing at my “other job” today. I’m supposed to be interviewing Ankie Spitzer at the JCC Maccabi Games in Rockland.

For those who don’t know, or who can’t place the name, Ankie Spitzer is the widow of one of the 11 Israelis murdered by Palestinian terrorists at the Munich Olympics in 1972. Her husband was the Israeli fencing coach.

Since then, Spitzer has been leading the fight to have a moment of silence in remembrance of those 11, and again this year, on the 40th anniversary of the atrocity, she was rebuffed by the IOC, despite efforts made by the JCC Rockland, which began a petition that had more than 100,000 signatures. Spitzer attended the Maccabi Games opening ceremony Sunday night.
