One More Sean Avery Story For You
Posted by Mike on December 5, 2008
Here is another tale of the love-able Sean Avery. While playing the Nashville Predators on Oct 11, Avery hit defensemen, Dan Hamhuis with a cheap-shot, cross-check from behind and received a penalty for it. But, the “incident” with Avery didn’t occur till he went to the penalty box, when he got into it with die-hard Predator’s fan (if there is any) Sandie Griffith. According to Griffith, here is how the exchange went:
“He came up behind Dan Hamhuis and cross-checked him, and I went to the box,” said Griffith. That’s when she asked him, “aren’t you going to turtle up?”
Griffith insisted to me that while she taunted Avery, she never used foul language. So what was Avery’s response? According to Griffith, Avery said, “You’re nothing but an old f**king c*nt, I wouldn’t even c*m in your face.” After which he sprayed her with his water bottle. It was following that incident that the refs assessed Avery a second game misconduct, and Griffith is pretty much convinced Avery’s reaction to the confrontation with her was the reason.
Here is the video of the exchange (at 2:21):
