Teammates gave me a sweet nickname that somehow caught on with my coach, other teams, refs, and even fans. Which was weird cause we didn't have names on the backs of our sweaters. But still everyone called me nine.
Did you wear number 9 by any chance?
I got called Mario when I was in squirts, when i wore #66.
not because the number, but because I wore red overalls, grew a mustache and saved a princess.
Random guy notice I was wearing a Red Wings hat over the weekend and came up to me. He was telling me the Wings are lucky to be in a "Cake Walk East". He then went on to say he was a Hawks fan.. What you gonna do?
Buy a cake, then walk on said confection before kicking him in the groin with your frosting covered foot.
At first I thought this was a good move, but his numbers this season are nothing to write home about. Still, he's a better puck moving defenseman than most our jobbers on the blue line. Hopefully, his woes had more to do with NJ than him being an old defenseman.
P.S. Only Holland would trade for a guy that got beat up by Sidney Crosby in a fight.
Crosby doesn't beat people up, he wrestles them to the ground and tries to concuss them, then take advantage of their b-holes.
