path: Home / #31 Galileo / * Mallory's Hockey Player Boyfriend

We didn't associate the name Mallory gave for her hockey player boyfriend with the 'real world' until someone wrote us.
"when Sam asked Mallory about her new boy-friend, she tells him that his name is Richard Andreychuk. He then replies that there is a hockey player with that name." Our informant tells us ". . . Dave Andreychuk [is] currently playing with the Buffalo Sabres."

We suspect that Sorkin, a known sports fanatic, probably knew the right name of the hockey player and made the change in the first name to avoid 'real world' complications. It is difficult to have a person from 'that world' interacting with a person from this world --- libel suits could arise, a girl friend in 'this world' might get jealous, etc.
