Yankees Curtis Granderson Shows Off Hockey Skills

New York Yankees star outfielder Curtis Granderson returned to his hometown of Chicago for a charity event.

During intermission of the Chicago Blackhawks game against the Calgary Flames he took part in the “Shoot to Fly” contest sponsored by United Airlines.

His task was to shoot the puck from center ice through one of the small cutouts in the goal.

His strategy was to channel his old gym days playing floor hockey.  After missing his first shot he scored and won a round trip ticket on his second shot.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
