Lightning Round: Victor Hedman buys a soccer team, well at least part of one

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman is diversifying. Not only is he a two-time Stanley Cup winner, he is now part owner of a soccer club. The Plymouth Argyle Football Club play in the EFL League One, a third-tier league in England. The Pilgrims have been in existence since 1886 and play their home games at Home Park, aka the Theatre of Greens (excellent stadium name).

Natural disasters like the “Hurricanes” are in the same vein and similarly unstoppable – good luck to all your Bears and Tigers and Leafs out there – but “Avalanche” is exactly what you want your team to be. Moving by and large in one direction, all at once, stopping for nothing, burying everything and anyone who dares get in your path.
