Single handedly putting hockey back on the map, this Sean Avery guy seems to be quite a bit of fun. Only a few days ago, Avery was busted for some remarks he made about an ex. Now, we're catching wind of some comments he made to an actual fan who was in attendance at a past hockey game.
Is it too late to get Avery on the "Sportsman of the Year" cover for SI? If you ask me, it should be a two-man race between him and Marko Jaric. Both of these guys are accomplishing more than 99 percent of their peers over the past 12 months. Well, assuming you do not count actual athletic achievements...
Fast-forward to Oct. 11, 2008, the night the Predators hosted the Stars in Nashville in what eventually would be a 3-1 win for the home team. [...]
Griffith insisted to me that while she taunted Avery, she never used foul language. So what was Avery's response? According to Griffith, Avery said, "You're nothing but an old f**king c*nt, I wouldn't even c*m in your face." After which he sprayed her with his water bottle. It was following that incident that the refs assessed Avery a second game misconduct, and Griffith is pretty much convinced Avery's reaction to the confrontation with her was the reason.
