Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesHunter S. Thompson is a legendary writer and pioneered his own form of journalism. When it came to NFL talent assessment Jessie Bates III Jersey , Thompson was decidedly less legendary.Former San Diego Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf shared a letter from Thompson to Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. Thompson informed Irsay he wouldn't provide a $30 million loan if the Colts were to select Peyton Manning but would do so if the team committed to taking Leaf first overall in the 1998 draft:Ryan D Leaf @RyanDLeafSo I received this letter last week. It鈥檚 written by Hunter S Thompson to @Colts Owner Jim Irsay in 1998 a month before the NFL Draft. This is unbelievable, hysterical, & ludicrous!! Have a read. @richeisen and I will discuss today on @RichEisenShow at 11:00 AM PT. #mindblown https://t.co/AWStCEiSTMThe Colts' decision to not take Leaf is one of the more interesting "what ifs" in NFL draft history. At the time, placing Manning over Leaf was far from a universal opinion.聽But Leaf's and Manning's careers went in significantly divergent directions following draft day.Colts fans will be thankful Irsay and Indianapolis' front office stuck to their guns and picked Manning, who went on to be one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
PITTSBURGH — It could be a trap game Saturday for the Pittsburgh Penguins when they host the Montreal Canadiens at PPG Paints Arena.

The Penguins (44-28-6) have not officially clinched a playoff spot and are clawing for positioning in the tight Metropolitan Division yet are a somewhat pedestrian 5-3-2 in their past 10 games.

In addition, they have a showdown with Washington Christian Kirk Jersey , first in the Metro, on Sunday.

Pittsburgh has had some trouble lately playing soundly against opponents that are out of playoff contention, with losses the past three weeks against the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and Detroit Red Wings.

However, this will be the Penguins’ third game in March against Montreal, another also-ran club Andy Dalton Bengals Jersey , and they have won the first two, both by 5-3. They will be going for their second-ever season series sweep of Canadiens and have won four straight and six of seven in the series.

What the Penguins are hoping for is a repeat of those two recent matchups with the Canadiens. Better yet, they would like to have a performance like the one they turned in Thursday with a gritty 4-3 overtime win against Metro foe New Jersey.

“This was our best 60-minute game in a long time,” Pittsburgh winger Patric Hornqvist, who is one goal shy of 200 for his career, said of the win over the Devils. “It’s the way we have to play from now on.”

Montreal (28-37-12) is 4-8-2 this month Dante Pettis Youth Jersey , but it isn’t looking to serve as some sort of a tune-up for the Penguins before their game against the Capitals.

The Canadiens, who have been off since Monday, a 4-2 win over Detroit, are finding motivation by looking to the future and are giving a handful of young players a chance to prove themselves.

“Those guys are still working out kinks in their game and improving,” winger Paul Byron said Friday after practice and before the team’s flight to Pittsburgh. “There are a lot of positives I see on our team right now. That’s why it’s so important to finish strong. Anything you do now kind of leads into next year.”

Everything the Canadiens do will be watched closely by management.

“I don’t think anybody’s evaluation is done,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said. “It’s important that they prove that they’re fighters.

“I want to see character — not just the evaluation of the player on the ice Will Hernandez Giants Jersey , but what kind of character does he have? Is he a guy who’s going to fight to the end, or is he a guy who’s going to mail it in and say, ‘Let’s get these games over with?’ It means a lot. Not just from young players, but from veterans, too.”

Julien said backup Antti Niemi, who began the season with Pittsburgh Minkah Fitzpatrick Dolphins Jersey , will start rather than No. 1 goaltender Carey Price.

Montreal could get defenseman David Schlemko back from an upper-body injury that has sidelined him for 12 games. He has medical clearance, but Julien has not decided on his lineup as far as skaters.

“You definitely want to be battling with the guys and on the ice,” Schlemko said. “Hockey’s a lot more fun when you’re playing games instead of bag skating by yourself. I’ve been working for weeks now on the ice to get back, so I’m definitely excited and chomping at the bit.”

The Penguins could get center Derick Brassard back after he missed the New Jersey game because of a lower-body injury.
