Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.
I was there on Brian Leetch's first day as a pro
In the winter of 1988, I was filling in at Rangers practice in Rye one day for Helene Elliott, our beat writer, who was busy at the Calgary Olympics. I ended up with an important story when the U.S. team got bounced from the tournament and one of its promising players, Brian Leetch, showed up for his first pro practice.
I had a bad cold that day. And I was much younger than I am now. So was Leetch.
