Zevon and the Cup

Always room on our team for a goon...

I've a character that I've used a few times. Morgan. Morgan is an underworld enforcer but played minor league hockey. I was listening to this song this a.m. and thinking about putting him in another story. Maybe something to do with the Cup. If you weren't aware, it's Cup time. Yeah, my teams were eliminated but I can't stop watching. This post is dedicated to Chris Holm. Read his stuff. He's good and likes hockey too.
