A bachelor party in Cook County, Minnesota resulted in 14 arrests, two of which were Carolina Hurricanes center Eric Staal, 22, and his brother, Pittsburgh Penguins rookie Jordan Staal, 18. The elder brother was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process, while Jordan got a bonus charge for underage drinking. As reported by Luke DeCock (it's French for "of cock") of the News & Observer:
[A]fter the Sheriff's office received complaints about "screaming, yelling and playing loud music," the group of about 20 was warned "multiple times" before it was ordered to leave the resort by Sheriff's deputies, a Minnesota State Patrol trooper and a U.S. Border Patrol agent at 3 a.m. Saturday.
"After leaving the property, the group gathered on Highway 61 and began harassing passing motorists," the Sheriff's office said, at which point 14 members of the group were arrested at approximately 4 a.m.
Well, this is massively disappointing. When a bachelor party ends in 14 arrests I expect at least three, maybe four dead hookers. Don't get me wrong — getting 'faced in the woods and yelling at passing cars is fun, but sports fans expect a little more of their star athletes. Once again, hockey doesn't know how to fit into the American sporting landscape. Give us something to work with. A stripper, some drugs, cockfighting, nudity… it's not like you need to murder anyone. Although I could work with that.
