To those who closely follow NHL news, the retirement of Sean Avery is not exactly “news.” But, having disclaimed both quality and quantity of my posts, I feel neither guilt nor shame about bringing you late “news.”
What a character Sean is! Leave it to him to announce his retirement on Bravo TV. I particularly enjoyed this exchange:
Q. What are your plans for the future, hockey-wise?
AVERY: I am officially retired. I threw my skates in the Hudson. [To Nicole Richie] It’s the river.
RICHIE: I know. I thought you meant that you threw them against Kate Hudson’s face.
AVERY: No. But she, I think, has dated a few hockey players in the past.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sean, a character people loved or hated, a brief introduction after the jump.
