Sean Avery of the Dallas Stars has been suspended indefinitely from the National Hockey League after publicly referring to Elisha Cuthbert as “sloppy seconds.” She’s currently dating Dion Phaneuf of the Calgary Flames. While talking to reporters yesterday, Sean made the following off-hand remarks, according to Us Magazine:
“I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada,” he said. “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.”
After the National Hockey League suspended him for “inappropriate public comments,” Avery — who served as an intern at Vogue this past year — now has to meet with Commissioner Gary Bettman, who will determine any additional penalty.
“I completely support the league’s decision to suspend Sean Avery,” Stars owner Tom Hicks said in a statement. “Had the league not have suspended him, the Dallas Stars would have. This organization will not tolerate such behavior, especially from a member of our hockey team. We hold our team to a higher standard and will continue to do so.”
So, apparently hockey is a gentleman’s sport now? Huh. I must be confused by all the punching and knocking out of teeth. Interesting. If that’s the case, why not make the players wear tuxes and top hats? You know, keep things classy. Then, if your teammate makes unsavory comments about a former lover, you can slap them in the face with your gloves and demand satisfaction. Which is also why everybody gets a pistol. Hear, hear!
