Yes, I was one of the best in the league. Not a big deal. I was born with fast hands and I didn't feel pain. The fact that Lauren was almost as good was a big deal. And she drew a bigger crowd. A lot of people wanted to cheer for her because she was a girl. And a lot wanted to cheer against her. I had a feeling she was going to get more ice time than I would.
