Another Great Nigerian Creation...

COLUMBUS, OH - JUNE 23: 56th overall draft pick Akim Aliu of the Chicago Blackhawks poses for a portrait during the 2007 NHL Entry Draft at Nationwide Arena on June 23, 2007 in Columbus, Ohio. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)


Okay, Yahoo! just ran this story: A 'Dream' realized. Blackhawks grab Nigerian forward at NHL Draft.


In my excitement, I clicked on the story and noticed there was not a picture of Akim, notice the reason for the aptly titled story, on the same page. I had to dig through their very many pictures of other draft picks, he was after all the 56th overall pick (is that great or good, I don't know these things, it definitely can't be bad, he's playing for the NHL, dammit :)).


I am so very proud!
A minute later.......
Okay, just as I published this post, Yahoo! decides to put up his photo, finally, someone must have told them it was stupid to run a story and have other peoples photos up instead of the main headliner!
Whatever! Anyway, Enjoy!
