Atheists in Sports - Eric Walsky

I've said before that professional sports is a kind of bastion of red-meat and apple-pie religious culture in the United States. That's why I was so satisfied to see the elephant in the (locker) room get addressed openly by sports journalists, fed up with preaching quarterbacks around the time of the superbowl.

I was also happy to run across this article about Anchorage native Eric Walsky, a free agent just signed to the Vancouver Canucks hockey team. Walsky is just finishing up at Colorado College. I should add that I assume he's an atheist, based on his thesis, which is written about "atheist identity".
