Dallas Stars forward and notorious asshole Sean Avery has had his run with the ladies of Hollywood. He dated Elisha Cuthbert and Rachel Hunter, both of which are currently dating other hockey players on other teams. In a recent interview, Avery thought it would be a great idea to start the interview off with the following… before anyone even asked him anything:
“I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about, but enjoy the game tonight.”
As a result of Avery’s comments, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has suspended him indefinitely. The Dallas Stars Owner Tom Hicks stated that if Gary Bettman hadn’t suspended him, the Stars would have. Seriously? Indefinitely? Now, I’m no hockey fanatic, but am I missing something here? Since when is hockey this classy, civilized sport? The best part of hockey is watching bearded men try to knock each other’s body parts off, not the parts where they all sit around and talk like they’re on The View. This wouldn’t have happened in the older days of hockey when it was more brutal and punchy.
