    Nice to see Whyno getting some love. I've praised him to Moddy numerous times. He has as much passion and enthusiasm for the job, and hockey, as anyone I've met.

    A. Thanks guys. Your checks are in the mail

    B. I did NOT put them up to this. Honest.

    C. Ruckus (and JR) are right. But those other papers can stay the hell away

    I follow Whyno, Katie Carrera and Tarik El-Bashir on Twitter ... I've really liked Stephen's stuff the more I've read him this season. I like the fact that he scoreboard watches on off days, giving updates of important games to Caps fans. He interacts with a lot of people, which I think is a key as a beat reporter. You can't respond to everyone on Twitter, but building a relationship with your readership is key. It's something I try to do on my beat. I certainly go to both papers' websites now to read on a daily basis.

    When I get some time, I'll share a couple of Whyno stories. Young people looking to make their way in this business can learn a lot from him, well beyond his excellent work ethic and ability to report. Be mature beyond your years is the short version.

    Getting ready to edit part three for tomorrow. He put a ton of work into this series and it shows.

    Does your story involve his extensive collection of jerseys? I am in awe of how many baseball and hockey jerseys he owns. Which just goes to further show his complete love of sports. You don't have to love sports to be a good sports writer, but it certainly doesn't hurt.
