RALEIGH, NC. - We could start with the fact that moments before we sit down with Carolina Hurricanes President & General Manager Don Waddell he's been interviewing candidates for the GM job of PNC Arena.
Or, we could start with the fact that since arriving as the team's president of business operations in 2014 Waddell has, barring travel, been in his office, usually at 5 a.m., every day but perhaps three. And two of those were Christmas Days.
Or, we could start with the fact that over the past three-plus years Waddell has had to lobby state politicians on the benefits of sports wagering and lobbying his owner to add this player or that player with equal dexterity.
But we will start with the porta-potties.
