As [Sean Avery] emerged from the dressing area at the back of the visiting dressing room, he asked if a TSN camera were present.
When he saw that it was, Avery stepped in front of the microphones, didn't wait for a question to be asked and started talking.
“I'm really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada,” began Avery. “I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my (former girlfriends).
“I don't know what that's about, but enjoy the game tonight.”
And with that, Avery walked away and didn't stick around to explain any further.
This guy sells hockey better than the Cindy and Gina show in Pittsburgh. There is nothing, NOTHING like injecting some hate into hockey and Sean has done it better than anyone this millennium. This sport has gone far towards Gary Bettman's ideal of a corporate, clean, midwest soccer mom-approved game between robots and Avery's antics help us remember how wonderfully entertaining it could be.
If seeing him face Elisha's new boyfriend Dion (and the "boring" Jarome Iginla) doesn't get you to tune into tonight's Dallas/Calgary game, I don't know what will.
