I know where Evgeni Malkin isn't.

Yeah, a lot of hockey people out there are speculating where in the world Evgeni Malkin is, Pittsburgh, Washington, Russia, who knows?

But I can tell you where he definitely is not.

Or wasn't yesterday around 3:30.

Evgeni Malkin definitely was not on 55th street in Manhattan with his arm around Mr. T.

I know this, because I was.


You heard me.














That's Mr. T on the left, there, next to your beaming author.

Evgeni Malkin was nowhere in sight.

I was on the way to meet a friend for coffee, and walked past a hotel on 55th street off Madison, and there, on the red carpet in front of the hotel posing for a photo with three beaming teenage girls, was Mr. T.

I don't really consider myself that impressed by celebrities, you see them every now and then in the city, but I hate to tell you, when you aren't expecting to see Mr. T, and all of a sudden, you are three feet away from Mr. T, well- you stop, you smile, and you tell Mr. T that you are happy to see him. Because you are.

And you know what?

Mr. T is happy to see you as well.

So, yeah- man.

Mr. T.

Sweet.

He didn't seem to be pitying me at all either, which was a good sign.

I'll keep an eye out for Malkin, though.

Keep checking back.

Kessel is gone for the NHL. I pity the fool who booked a flight to Minneapolis to watch the Golden Gophers play.

It looks like you and the T were playing a game of grab-ass.

Are you sure it wasn't Donald Brashear? It looks like Donald Brashear- I mean, dosen't it?
