Bottle of dicks. I was working on this little “Chelios=Bareback Mountain=Can’t quit you” piece of shit when Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy tweeted my nug and beat me to everything that is good in hockey blogging. I said “fuck it”, I’ll run my piece even though my own cheese-ball reference to a shitty Ang Lee movie was thought of by everyone else. Here she is in all her glory:
It appears as though Chris Chelios is set to sign with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. According to MLive via CBSSportsline.com, he’s skating on Monday and is reportedly “intending” to sign with the club next week.
I guess he still feels like “there’s something left in the tank”, I mean his face has always kind of reminded me of Stallone’s Rocky. Still, I just can’t figure out why the three-time Stanley Cup Champion feels so compelled to keep playing hockey at the age of 47.
Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings apparently offered Chelios an opportunity to skate with their club for the sake of “conditioning”, but are glad he’s gone wish him the best.
“Cheli’s a great guy. We’re all pulling for him here,” Babcock said.
