Sean Avery: Douchebag

I know i'd probably love him if he were on my team but as of now I can't stand his jerk off face (yes i voted for 2) and this video would have me seething if i'm a Devil fan.

Avery won the battle. He got the entire Devil team chasing him and going after him; leaving the likes of Jagr, Gomez, Henrik to do their thing. Even more irritating, Sean Avery had 3 goals and 2 assists in a series where he got the high holy hell kicked out of him. Not once did he retaliate, not once did he spear Brodeur BACK after one of several times Brodeur slashed and prodded him. The Devils, a lot like the Thrashers last year, seemed a lot more concerned with crosschecking, punching, and disgustingly, horse collaring people as opposed to actually playing hockey, and it cost them. I don't think this can be in dispute. Anyway, back to Avery.

Some of you may be wondering who is this guy and why has he become a focal point of this site?

Avery has taken so-so talent and good speed and pretty much made himself the most talked about player in the league. It's the Muhammad Ali school of celebrity, that whether you love him or you hate him, you sure as hell are going to watch him. He's redefining his career through this rivalry with perhaps the best goalie in history. It's almost like you can't talk about one without talking about the other. The thing with Avery is that it's not an act for him. He's not just doing it to play this way for this series, and then, at the end of it, he'll show some respect for an opponent that gave his team a hard fought series. Maybe.

He reads Vogue magazine. He goes to fashion shows. He paints his finger nails. He wears lame hats. He walks around like a hard ass. He spends $300 on t shirts. I'd bet I'll see him at Tonic East on Saturday Night wearing a pink popped collar shirt once the season ends. He probably cuts off little old ladies flying down the Henry Hudson in his convertible. He typifies everything there is to hate about the stereotypical New Yorker and he hit this: (rumors circulating of a little thing with MICHELLE TANNER also)

No man outside of Sidney Crosby is as universally loved/loathed to the extent of Sean Avery. Heck a ton of Non Rag fans like him too. Most "traditional" hockey fans hate personality, and that's what Avery brings. The league needs MORE personality. Like it or hate it, we need this prick in the league. That is until he faces your team in the playoffs.

Multiple thoughts:

1. Is Sidney Crosby really that hated by the rest of the league? Isn't one of the top two players in the game fairly universally respected?

2. Props to Marty, for following through on Dino Cicarelli's famous "I can't believe I shook that guy's hand" by walking by Avery.

3. In the words of the immortal Paulie Walnuts, I wouldn't piss on Avery if he were on fire.

4. I don't want to talk myself into rooting for the Flyers over the Rags in the conference finals, but if I have to, I will.
