I listened to the preseason game against the Blues on St. Louis radio last night (thanks, Heika!) and I got my first taste of what it’s going to be like to have Sean Avery on my beloved Stars team. So far, I don’t like it one bit.
Listening to the Blues’ radio broadcasters calling him a turtler just made me cringe. It’s embarrassing. If they’d said that about anybody else, I’d get all defensive, but when they say it about Avery, I believe it. It’s embarassing!
When I first heard the horrifying news that he’d been signed, I was reminded that at least it’s not Chris Pronger, but now I’m not so sure which one I’d pick.
At least Pronger doesn’t prance around in suit-shorts and patent-leather booties, constantly protesting too much talking about how much he likes girls.
So far, all I’ve done is listen to an out-of-town radio broadcast of the most meaningless of pre-season games and I’m beside myself with disgust. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this season, let alone three more after that.
