    Mitch Albom ... knowing anything about personal ethics and basic human decency? Not a chance.

    And welcome to the board ... let some others help break you in to the "wonders" of the esteemed Mr. Albom.

    I had my picture taken with the Stanley Cup at a couple of ECHL All-Star Game events back in the day, one at a meet-and-greet for media and VIPs, the other on the concourse at the game where there were fans doing the same thing. Never lost a minute's sleep over it.

    The ethics problem is that he had his picture taken with the Stanley Cup?

    The answer is no, he isn't (see: Hutton comma Carole Leigh). This isn't why tho... reenforcing his inner cloying fanboi, maybe.

    My question is why he did not get the picture taken when they won it the other times?

    It's not like there was a 65-year dry spell for this team.

    How many Boston writers did something similiar when the Red Sox finally won the Series? Not saying they did, but I could see them doing it more than this Cup for the Wings.

    Mitch is not ethically sound, but perhaps he can undergo an operation to return to the appearance of ethical soundness.

    Not sure that I'd have a problem with this particular instance. But there's plenty of other fodder for which to question Mr. Mitch.

    What's to question? Albom passed off fiction as fact. Case forever closed.

    If Albom drank from Lord Stanley's Cup, peter-puffed Gary Bettman, and went A-T-M with Chris Osgood, those would be the LEAST of his ethical worries.

    Well that's a mental image I really didn't need.

    Surely we all remember the Michigan State Final Four piece a few years back ... and the half-assed, arrogant apology that followed. That right there showed not only his ethics, but a pure lazy ass attitude about going about things. Not to mention the arrogance he showed by just figuring, "Hey, I'm Mitch Albom, I can make shit up and no one will ever call me out on it because I've wrote a best selling novel."
