It was a lesson a majority of the Colorado General Assembly and governor never learned in their lame - and probably unconstitutional - attempt to force the state's schoolchildren and teachers to say the Pledge of Allegiance.

Then he got by two more checkers and blew this shot by their goalie. I thought to myself, `Or you can do that.' " Maurice might as well have been talking about his former Carolina defenseman, Sandis Ozolinsh, because this describes the Mighty Duck.
