This is the 32nd in our summer series in which we’re pulling hockey cards at random from a box and then writing about them.
In today’s comment thread on the post with our latest podcast, there was some discussion of our disparaging tone about Fedor Fedorov. Caitlin suggested that we should create a cocktail in his honor, to make it more palatable in the unlikely event that he ends up being a frequent topic of conversation in this coming season. As if on cue, Pookie discovered a cocktail recipe on one of our very favorite foodie blogs; she suggested we make this cocktail ASAP, and maybe dedicate it to Fedorov. The recipe, for the “American Flyer”, calls for champagne, which we don’t have on hand, but we do have Prosecco, a substitution that made us think maybe we could claim the drink for ourselves. Claim it, and dub it the Flyin’ Fedorov’s Flyin’ Fedor. Perfect!
And whaddaya know? The PBS Dispenser tonight gave us an extremely rare card from the almost unheard-of “O-Pook-Chee” line, totally coincidentally for Fedor Fedorov himself! We love it when things work out like that.
