"Overreacting" is an interesting choice of words to use while defending a guy who was yelling, screaming, breaking glass because the refs at a midget hockey game screwed up a penalty call. 


Lets put it this way, if you find yourself getting angry over a midget hockey game...you're a douchebag. 


Meh, it's not like he was pounding on the glass and I'm pretty sure he was upset the girl on the ice was kicking at the other player.  That's kind of a big deal no?  It's not like he ran out onto the ice and clotheslined the other girl.  I don't see him "yelling" or "screaming".  And breaking the glass was a fluke.  He slowly walks to the glass, hits it with an open hand and it shattered.  If that's all it takes to break the glass then I don't know how I have not shattered hundreds at the games I've been to.


Hahaha. Holy hell.
That's awesome.

Thanks for digging that up for me.


You should see the picture.  I'd post it but it always gets deleted for some reason.

I think people are overreacting (not just here, in the hockey world).  The guy barely hits the glass and it shatters.  And he does react, just not in complete shock.  It's not like he pulled out a battering ram.


He reminds me of the boss from floor 3 or 4 on Kung Fu where he just kicks or punches and you die.

Unless there is an injury I don't see him doing anything more than serving as a black ace.  They might give him one game at some point if we are not in too tight of a race, just to see what he looks like on NHL ice, but barring those conditions I don't really expect it.

It's been about 5 years since Brett Favre retired. I remember that he held on too long, and I don't even watch football.

Chelios hung them up about 5 years ago, too. I'll never forget that he wound up splitting time between Atlanta and the Chicago Wolves during his last season, because he wasn't willing to retire when he should have.

I'm sure not every one will remember this stuff, but some will. 


I do because I got to see him play here when the Wolves came to town.


McCarty too. (edit: I got to see him play, not insinuating he stayed around too long.)
