Let the countdown to Olympic sportscaster Mike Milbury's inevitable suspension begin! After tonight's quarterfinal hockey game between Canada and Russia, Milbury had some choice words for the Russian athletes, saying that they "came with their Eurotrash game." Video inside.
Russians are known for many things and huge hockey brawls are one of them. Perhaps it's ingrained in them at such an early age? Watch as these two kids hockey teams have an all out war on the ice.
We won't begrudge this Swedish hockey player a chance to celebrate his goal, but maybe he should tone down the enthusiasm before he gets hurt. Oh, too late.
If hockey is really ever to catch on in the U.S. like it has in other parts of the world perhaps they should consider replacing human players with bears. Watch to the end to witness an actual bear brawl.
Aww, how nice. Mighty Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer gave that young, starry eyed girl his hockey stick! What the little girl didn't know is that certain angry adults would also like to be in possession of that stick. Fightfightfight!
Step away from the fashion closet: Sean Avery is returning to New York and rejoining the Rangers. Sadly, another stint at Men's Vogue this summer is not in the cards, since the magazine was dismantled while Avery was off in Dallas. But maybe he'll use this as an opportunity to join Vogue proper and branch out to womenswear. [AP]
It took less than 24 hours for Sean Avery to apologize for saying yesterday that his National Hockey League opponents "fall in love with my sloppy seconds." In fact, he's already flown to New York to grovel before the league commissioner. Although Avery is famous for picking these kinds of fights, it appears the recent Vogue intern's media instincts pushed him way over the line:
Sean Avery has long relished his role as the National Hockey League's miscreant-in-chief, but the Dallas Stars forward's internship at Vogue seems to have sharpened his instincts for provocation to razor precision. Avery was just suspended indefinitely by the NHL for talking smack about two ex-girlfriends, actress Elisha Cuthbert and model Rachel Hunter, who ended up in the arms of other players. His own team said it would have suspended him had the league not done likewise. The truly insane part of the whole incident is that Avery sought out TV cameras so he could broadcast his self-destructive diss. (UPDATE: Video after the jump.)
Click to viewBoomp3.com Never one to miss an opportunity to make a statement, Academy Award winner Tim Robbins decided to take on the ruthless Hockey Mom confab by wearing a deliciously inspired t-shirt. Robbins proudly displayed his Hockey Dads for Obama shirt right before taking in a street hockey game, and he also generously donated shirts for all of the parents on both teams to wear. Robbins said, “Palin does not speak for all of the hockey parents out there. I’m sure that there are a lot of Hockey Single Moms for Obama out there. I also believe that the ultimate hockey god, Don Cherry, is for Obama, too.” [Photo Credit: Splash Pics] *A Call To The Bullpen is a work of fiction.
