No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

The nastiest little man in hockey

It used to be Harold Ballard - angry and mean and pinched. Now, though, the most vile man in hockey is pesty sometime-Vogue-intern Sean Avery. This guy is an complete ass on the ice. And off.

This week, Avery tried to fire up some press for himself with the following little quip to TSN: "I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada. 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. Enjoy the game tonight."

That charming comment would be in reference to his ex-girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert and her new (Calgary) flame Dion Phaneuf. Now Cuthbert's a big girl - and she does have a bit of an Alyssa Milano rep when it comes to hockey players - but to speak of her publicly, as trash talk, says a lot more about Avery than it does about her. It is asshatty.

The NHL jumped on this one pretty damn quick - Avery's suspended with a hearing to come.
