LEAST INSPIRATIONAL SPORTS STORY. EVER.

Yzerman_97cupESPN the Magazine writer Eric Adelson has revisited an article he wrote a few years back about Detroit Red Wings icon Steve Yzerman, specifically the hockey legend's relationship with a cancer-stricken Colorado boy.

Turns out, though, the closest the boy ever got to having cancer was a toddler-era tumor near his lymph nodes. But to Yzerman's credit, he told Adelson that despite being duped for several years by the boy's father, "I'm not going to stop reaching out. . . . Actually, I think I might do it more often."

CATCHING UP WITH PARENTING MAGAZINE

To provide you, our reader, with the best information possible, Freelance Dad subscribes to nearly every parenting magazine under the sun. Occasionally, the issues pile up and we need to tear through them a stack in a late night, marathon session, as we did last night when we scanned the past three or four issues of Parenting magazine. Wondering what you've missed if you haven't been keeping up with the book? Here are a few headlines:

"Is your [breast] milk safe?"

"Too Early for Deodorant?"

"Is coffee okay for kids?"

"1,940: The average number of children hurt by elevators every year"

PUBLIC SERVICE NOTE

An Associated Press article online today is the first we've ever seen that actually provided a pronunciation for phthalates. So, if you had  "thowl-ates" in the pool, you're a winner!

Oh, and speaking of phthalates? If you've shampooed or powdered your baby any time recently, his urine is probably sick with them.
