Incorrect assumptions

Carl Leggieri, Alexandria, Va.

Thank you, Adam Proteau, for your response regarding my question about Mike Comrie wearing No 19 as opposed to No. 89 (Ask Adam, Nov. 1).

However, I just wanted you to know that two incorrect assumptions were made. First, you assumed that I was considering Sidney Crosby an egomaniac, which I was not. If the No. 19 had been issued for the reason I had questioned, I would have assumed it was the organization's decision and not Crosby's.

Second, you assumed that because I live in “Washington Capitals Territory” that the Penguins, and hence Crosby, are hated by me. Again, wrong!

I happen to admire Crosby not only as a great hockey player, but a fine young man as well. He is an asset to a sport I have followed since the mid-1950s.
