Today is Sunday, and in the summertime that means it's time for another "If you only read one thing today..." post, where we give you a second chance to read one article that every hockey fan should read.

I thought about this article yesterday while running and sweating profusely (sorry to put that mental image in your head this early in the morning.) Anyway, this Toronto Globe & Mail article is a fascinating look into exactly what happens to a player's body during those overtime games we all love. After checking this out maybe you'll think twice before yelling at a player for "not even trying" in the second overtime.

Drink up, boys - The Globe and Mail
Marathon overtime games delight fans, dehydrate players in a 'testimony to human physiology'.
