Today’s Idiot: Sean Avery
Don’t get me wrong, I love Sean Avery and think that he’s great in small doses and picking fights. I loved him on the Rangers but understood the best thing for the Rangers to do was let him sign long-term somewhere else and be someone else’s problem. And there he went, to the Dallas Stars to give them the headache that is Sean Avery.
“I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada,” Avery said on camera this morning in Calgary. “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. Enjoy the game tonight.”
Classy guy, that Sean Avery. He’s probably the only NHL player ever that warranted a rule change in the middle of the playoffs, and now he’s spouting off classless remarks about his ex-girlfriends. I hate it when people talk about their ex’s in general, and even more when it’s completely uncalled for comments.
I know chivalry is a dying courtesy, but as someone who tries to keep it alive as best he can, this appalls me. Maybe he’s angry that he left the best team in the Eastern Conference (38 points) to play for the worst team in the Western Conference (22 points). Maybe he’s just upset because he was dumped by The Girl Next Door.
I dunno, but he’s completely out of line, inappropriate and has made a complete ass of himself.
