Who cares about hockey. A bunch of guys sliding around on ice whacking each other with sticks and trying to pretend like they are not fighting when the whole point is fighting. Trogs on ice. But I digress.
Philadelphia Flyers Wayne Simmonds called Sean Avery of the New York Rangers a “fucking faggot” apparently because he, Avery, supported same sex marriage. The NHL officials claim that they can’t be sure what transpired on the ice, so nothing was done about it. But, just as NYPD cops can’t arbitrarily pepper spray women standing there in a Protestor-Enclosure without somebody catching the barbaric act on film, hockey players can’t be all homophobic at each other without it being documented. Did Simmonds really say that to Avery? You be the judge:
OK, he might have said “I wanna bagette” but I’m not sure.
Anyway, everyone is pretty sure he really did say that and that the NHL officials have not acted appropriately because they’re all a bunch of …. hockypucks!
