Ben Bishop Not Using Olympic Snub As Motivation

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop was asked after shutting out the Calgary Flames on Friday evening if he was using not making the US Olympic team as motivation:

“I don’t think I’m using that as motivation. It’s the same thing as all year, you go out there and take it game by game and just try and help the team win. I’m not going to dwell on that USA that’s their choice – I though I played well enough. You have to respect it there’s three really good goalies representing the USA so I wish them nothing but the best of luck.”

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.
