OK, so it’s pretty unanimous that Sean Avery’s an idiot. The guy interned for some femme magazine over the summer and talks about women’s purses like Bill Belichick breaks down defenses. I don’t even want to get into his childish antics in the playoffs last year. But the guy does have a pretty impressive dating record, so I wouldn’t mind his sloppy seconds. And if you don’t understand that line, watch the following video:
That’s what Avery said to the media the morning before the Stars’ game against the Flames — the team for which Dion Phaneuf plays. Phaneuf also happens to be dating hottie Elisha Cuthbert, one of Avery’s ex-girlfriends. Another one of his exes is former SI cover girl Rachel Hunter, who’s currently engaged to Kings defenseman Jarret Stoll. Wyshinski over at Puck Daddy says the NHL is making fools of themselves by suspending a guy for merely making a silly remark. I agree. I even feel bad that I’m playing into Avery’s game by posting the video, but I found the remark too funny to ignore. At least the NHL is getting some publicity out of this.
