10 Things With Joel Ward

We know a lot about our favorite athletes on the field. Their stats and bios are easily googled and we read about their on-field accomplishments often. But how much do we really know about them personally?

Since we’re curious, we’ve asked our favorite athletes to tell us 10 things that we don’t know about them.

Today we check in with the Capitals’ Joel  Ward, who might just fall out of favor with Redskins fans.

10 Things You Don’t Know About Me, Joel Ward

1. My favorite food is West Indian food. I’m from a West Indian culture, so it’s in my blood.

2. I have a B.A. in Sociology. I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. I still might after hockey.

7. I’m a good singer. Wait, let me change that. I’m a good shower singer.
