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):

It appears that Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck still holds a grudge over Ben Roethlisberger from Super Bowl XL, because when doing his part in the NFL’s 60 program this week, Hasselbeck was asked a question by a young girl, reports King5.com. The young girl asked Hasselbeck, “Do you think girls should be allowed to play in the NFL?” and Hasselbeck had quite the response for you Steeler fans :

“Girls can play in the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger plays for the Steelers, right ?” Hasselbeck said, in a playful flashback to Seattle’s Super Bowl loss three seasons ago

“Joking. Totally joking. That was a joke,” Hasselbeck said, chuckling.

Boston Celtics shooting guard, Ray Allen, has always been referred to as a consummate professional. But what Allen did on Wednesday, November 26th, was help keep long-time friend Daryl Jones safe while Jones was staying in the Oberoi Trident Hotel when it was attacked last week, reports Boston.com. When Allen first heard of the attacks from his wife, he called Jones and told him exactly what was going on, and do not, under any circumstances even if Amrita Arora is knocking on the door, don’t open it up!  With the help of Allen, Jones was able to safely come back across the pond. More from Boston.com:

Allen’s longtime friend Daryl Jones was in the Oberoi Trident Hotel when it was attacked with grenades and assault rifles in a rampage beginning Nov. 26. The Northwest Airlines flight attendant had gone to the front desk to get a new room key when he heard shooting in the lobby. Allen said Jones immediately headed to the 21st floor, where another hotel guest allowed him to hide in his room for two days.

Allen learned of the attack during a phone call from his wife, Shannon, after a win over Golden State that night. Upon arriving home, Allen gave a whispering Jones an updated television news report for about 20 minutes. Worried that Jones could be targeted because he was an American, Allen also told his friend that if a terrorist asked for his passport to say he didn’t have it and that he was Jamaican.

“When I called him, I was telling him everything I heard on TV,” Allen said yesterday. “[Jones learned] about the hotel being on fire and I told him that there was police outside. I told him, ‘This is what is happening. From what they are saying, there are still terrorists running around shooting people and throwing grenades. You need to hide and don’t open the door if someone knocks on it.’

“We talked for about 20 minutes and I told him, ‘We’ll be [by the phone] if you need to call back. If you call back, we’ll be up waiting, and if you [don’t call], just leave us a message letting us know you’re all right.’ “
