Here at Fire Tom Thibodeau, we do our best to give appreciation to certain women out there who are not only gorgeous, but athletes. And by athletes, I mean women who can actually play sports and that aren’t doing it just because they are “hot” (See current WWE divas). Now, I still have my lovely Elena Delle Donne but I assured her earlier, there was enough room in my heart for one more. This is Hilary Knight who is one of the leaders of the USA Hockey team. MadCityMac probably knew of her well before I did because she was a four-year star at Wisconsin from 2007-2011. I saw her on the NHL Network about a month ago talking about training for the Olympics as well as playing in the CWHL for the Boston Blades. She once had five goals in a game as well as six points overall in another. She played for Team USA at 17 in 2006. Her accomplishments are outstanding already. According to Wikipedia, she was the first American-born player to win the MVP for the CWHL and lead her team to the championship.
We know Mac loves his women’s hockey players. Now, I can see why. Here’s to you Hilary. Kick some ass in the Olympics.
