Local boy done good...

I was looking at the Tribune's sports section this morning to see how North's basketball team did this week (they're 16-3 (5-0), and learning how to win games when Jon Scheyer gets contained) and saw a summary of a story about the Blackhawks that referred to a goalie named Craig Anderson. I thought that was funny, because I remembered one of my classmates, Carrie Anderson (going all the way back to kindergarten) had a little brother named Craig born about a year before my sister Holly. And both of Carrie's brothers played hockey... Sure enough, same kid.

The Andersons moved to Barrington not long after Carrie and my class graduated from high school, which probably explains why Craig's career stayed under the radar. It wouldn't have received any local press in Northbrook, and I honestly haven't followed the Blackhawks since junior high.

It's also funny, he says in his Blackhawks bio, if he wasn't playing hockey, he'd be racing cars. Like his dad, who used to race on the same SCCA circuits as my dad way back in the day.
