Good FightSome members of Hot Clicks Nation may remember the name John Steigerwald. He's the Pennsylvania sports columnist who blamed Giants fan Bryan Stow for being put in a coma by a Dodgers fan because Stow wore a San Francisco jersey to a game in L.A. Over the weekend, Steigerwald wrote a column in which he speculated about Capitals star Alex Ovechkin using performance-enhancing drugs. That led to Puck Daddy columnist Ryan Lambert writing a blog post in which he blasted Steigerwald. And that led to Steigerwald having Lambert on his radio show today to confront him, which made for very entertaining radio.
