- 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.
