The FBI Clashes With U.S. Secret Service Just For Fun

WASHINGTON – Competition between the FBI and U.S. Secret Service over the years hasn’t always been playful.
But this past Saturday it definitely was.
The two agencies squared off in a hockey game before a standing-room only crowd at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va., the practice rink of the Washington Capitals.
The game raised $9,000 for the family of Sam Hicks, the Pittsburgh FBI agent who was fatally shot last fall while serving a search warrant.  And oh yes, the FBI won 5-4 in overtime.
FBI Director Robert Mueller III skated on to the ice in an FBI hockey Jersey with Hick’s name on the back. U.S. Secret Service director Mark Sullivan, wearing a Secret Service hockey jersey, joined his team in warm ups, according to the FBI.
The two agencies had just worked elbow-to-elbow on the intense presidential inauguration.
