NHL players wearing ‘Puck Gary’ hats to bash Gary Bettman (Picture)

This just in: NHL players are generally unhappy with commissioner Gary Bettman. As with any labor dispute, there is ongoing animosity between the NHL and the NHL Players Association. As you can see from the photo above that TVA Sports passed along, some players in Montreal have decided to go elementary school with the whole thing and make hats bashing the perceived bad guy.

For those of you who can’t make it out, that says “Puck Gary” in fancy lettering above “2012-2013 NHL Lockout.” According to Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette, Canadiens star Erik Cole says the hats could soon be available to the public with all proceeds benefitting charity. If grown men are going to act like children, they might as well do it for a good cause.

We all want hockey to return, but I think most of us can agree that hats that say “Puck Gary” do absolutely nothing in terms of working toward a resolution. From what we hear, most fans would probably rather spend their money on sex toys while the lockout continues anyway.

    Uh, no, grown men should basically refrain from acting like children on a permanent basis given that their childhoods are now past, regardless of their underlying, and inevitably flawed, reasons for doing so.  I like hockey and would like to see the NHL lockout resolved ASAP, but sorry folks, if this story made you laugh out loud or strikes you as some kind of brilliant idea then you’re likely immature and fairly stupid.  Nothing personal, but facts are facts.
