Dallas Stars forward Sean Avery, famous for being a colossal dick on the ice, added to his infamy off of it with his comments regarding his ex-girlfriends and other NHL players (past flames Elisha Cuthbert and Rachel Hunter are now with the Flames’ Dion Phaneuf and the Kings’ Jarret Stoll, respectively). In case you missed it, he offered this up to reporters before anyone asked him a question:
“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 sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about, but enjoy the game tonight.”
In response, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has suspended Avery indefinitely. Seriously: indefinitely. Which is awesome. Because let’s face it, what he said was kinda true and not really all that bad. He basically got suspended because everyone’s tired of him being a dick.
Also, I think you technically forfeit the right to use the term “sloppy seconds” if you’ve ever hit on Paris Hilton.
