Breaking News: Sean Avery Did Something Jackass-y

A guy tried to do that to me once when I was tending net about a couple years ago. (To be fair, he did it because I had pushed his feet out from under him.) He did it for about 10 seconds and then a puck hit him square in the back. It was hilarious.

But seriously, that should be unsportsmanlike conduct.


You know, it's kind of embarrassing to be the fan of a last place team; everyone disrespects you, implies that your team's management is incompetent, and gloats about how their team is so much better. I guess it could be worse, though; my team could be hyped as a playoff contender and then get buttfucked on national television. Ahh, delicious, delicious Schaudenfrude.

It was worse than that.

It was more like watching your mom get ass raped while the guy is pouring sugar in your gas tank. While drinking Tab and not recycling.

"then get buttfucked [AGAIN] on national television."

Seriously, if you guys don't pull this one off you are the Bills of hockey.

I guess I should point out that I was talking about both the Sharks and the Ducks.

Earl Sleek said...

Ain't this a beautiful time of year? It's almost the only time in the history of this blog that all three of these statements can legitimately exist:

Kings fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Sharks or Ducks fan."

Ducks fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Kings or Sharks fan."

Sharks fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Ducks or Kings fan."

I mean, I guess these are normal things for BoC fans to say, but it's rare that all three teams make it justifiable by each being in their own version of "freefall".

Earl Sleek said...

and then get buttfucked on national television.

I think this should be the Kings' slogan for next year. "At least our buttfucking is only locally covered."

Niekon said...

it's rather interesting... the league made an amendment to the roles effective immediately because of Avery's antics...

"An unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalty (Rule 75) will be interpreted and applied, effective immediately, to a situation when an offensive player positions himself facing the opposition goaltender and engages in actions such as waving his arms or stick in front of the goaltender's face, for the purpose of improperly interfering with and/or distracting the goaltender as opposed to positioning himself to try to make a play."

RudyKelly said...

Hey, at least we can score on Turco.

Earl Sleek said...

Yeah, Anaheim's shot quality has certainly been adversely affected by these damn cup rings.

Julian said...

unfortunately we can still hear you as only one earvis plugged.

While drinking Tab

It's hilarity like that, that has me addicted to this place.

Kings fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Sharks or Ducks fan."

Ducks fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Kings or Sharks fan."

Sharks fan: "Thank goodness I'm not a Ducks or Kings fan."


Washington said...

well it's nice to know that the league responded quickly and affirmatively for a change.

Unfortunately, SJ's MO has been to fukk up in one bad game and not be able to recover. if they can shrug it off and bounce back tomorrow, i think they will be okay for the rest of the series. this team has dealt with adversity better than the previous teams, so tomorrow is the true test.

but rudy was absolutely correct in his assessment. Thornton, Michalek, Cheechoo, and Campbell need to pull their heads outta their asses. And it's nice to see Marleau play with some passion.

Pookie said...

Ahh, delicious, delicious Schaudenfrude.

This should be the official, annual tagline for the NHL Playoffs. For all fans of all fanbases.

Washington said...

also another point. wasted opportunity since they destroyed kipper. unless, kipper reverts to his SJ self, they can't expect him to implode like that again. I fully expect him to be a monster again. That's fine. Just need SJ to play better.
they better play like their contracts depend on it from here on out.
