Sorry if this is the wrong forum (didn't know where to put it). I think this is one of the biggest advantages to having professional sports. Just knowing what these guys do for charities astounds me.

Here you have it.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

Come on you are dragging down the spirit of the commercial by putting that crap in here. Save that for the next time we come up against them in the playoffs.

I do too. I personally found it really touching.

I know every sports venue does this kind of thing.. but I really think hockey players are of their own kind. Just amazing people, for the most part.

Lol, I believe Crosby scoring is the first scene in the commercial.

Over the years i've known college and pro football players and basketball players and hockey players.

The hockey players are by far the most appreciative of their place in society, and their good fortune. They are greatful to be where they are and seem to have a better understanding of the world around them.

While it has a lot to do with respecting the traditions and history of hockey, I think it also has something to do with hockey being a bit of a background sport at the school age levels. A high school kid that is a big hockey stud will not get near the attention that the big football or basketball stud will. And thats a good thing.

The few retired NHLers that i know are all anxious to "give back" and they do all the time.

LMAO!
I can't believe they deprived us of a Crosby goal. Who allowed this commercial on to the airwaves?!?! Off with their heads!

I hadn't seen that commercial before last night, but a big round of applause goes out for it. Great commercial.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.
