Apparently the fights are real and the most difficult fighters to break up are girl fights.
Two girls started slapping each other as hard as they could and when I got in the middle to break it up they each grabbed a hold of each other’s hair. So I did what made sense, grabbed their hands and tried to pull their hands off the others hair. However, when I finally pulled one of the girl’s hands away she didn’t let go and pulled the others wig right off her head and then threw it into the crowd. I felt a little responsible for that one!
Overall the show was such a blast to be a part off. I was pleasantly surprised as to how many Blackhawks fans were in the audience. When I got on stage they started chanting things like, “We love hockey fights,” and “Detroit Sucks!”
Now these are the kinds of things athletes should be doing and talking about on their blogs. I don’t want to hear about your wack album or why you should get the ball more. Keep it interesting like Agent Zero, Chris Cooley or Paul Shirley.
Chelios is convinced that Elliott knew what he was doing when he placed the cup upside down. He told JJ & Lynne of WCZX in Detroit, “Someone should have drove that guy, he did that on purpose.”
J.J.: “You think he did it on purpose?”
“No, we know he did … we talked to people at the show and the guy was being real rude to everybody,” Chelios said. “He was in a bad mood when they got there, so for whatever reason he didn’t want to be there. And that’s his way of showing it and taking it out on the NHL. …
Lynne: “Do you think [Kyle] Quincey would have really popped him?”
“No I don’t know if he would have popped him, but he could have gave him a good shove,” Cheli said.
The old man is taking this a little too personal. He’s probably trying to pump up his team and get the crowd going. Someone should tell him it’s probably not worth his time if he’s not on the ice. I didn’t listen to the interview but I’m pretty sure that he also called out Dokken for insulting his mother and Mr. Big for wanting to be with him even though he’s “not like that”.
Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott is blaming the NHL for putting the Stanley Cup upside down.
“…Someone at the NHL should have known better and informed me first instead of keeping the Stanley Cup under lock and key until the last minute. The practice run the day before with a coffeemaker went swimmingly because it, like every other sporting cup I’ve ever seen, was wider at the top than the base. Ironic isn’t it that after that night’s gig, a NHL insider told me that long ago the Stanley Cup was also designed to be put down that way!!! Like most of my fellow Brits, I’d never seen it before until it was handed to me sideways by which time I had a 50/50 chance of getting it right. Whoops……”
We’ll give him a pass this time. The Brits aren’t used to getting trophies. At least he didn’t blame the “greasy Mexicans” this time.
“America’s #1 Hockey Mom” probably thought her children would act as a shield. Sheeeeit, you betta ask somebody.
That’s cold but that’s how Philly do. Did they really think it would go any other way? I’m sure no one noticed the attempt to drown out the boos by turning up the music. Too bad Flyers owner and McCain supporter Ed Snider couldn’t block out the Obama/Biden signs in the crowd.
Let this episode be a lesson to team owners who insist on shoving their politics down the throat of the fan. You too will fail especially if you live in Philadelphia.
UPDATE: By the time Palin dropped the puck Saturday night, she was used to the boos. She had been getting them since 3:35 PM that afternoon.
Put the Stanley Cup upside down? That’s a paddlin’.
If you’re a hockey fan and you’re not reading Puck Daddy, you’re sleeping. You’re missing brilliance such as the following story which shows why rehearsal is so important.
** Drummer Rick Allen was arrested for beating his wife years ago. Couldn’t she have avoided it if she just ran in circles around him? He only has a right arm. What? I’ve never hit a woman and now I’m the asshole?
