Yeah, that's that hit right thurr.
What? The Flyers won tonight? Who cares? Have you heard about this business of Pronger stealing game pucks?
"The Flyers All-Star defenceman drew the ire of the Blackhawks - and Ben Eager in particular - after he scooped up the game puck at the final buzzer in the two games in Chicago. Traditionally, the winning team often keeps the game puck as a souvenir - especially when the Stanley Cup final is at stake."
Seriously? How gauche. When asked about it:
"Pronger answered several questions in his media session on Tuesday, but he was not asked specifically about the puck-stealing incidents. In his post-game comments on Monday night, Pronger was short and curt when responding to the topic.
"It's in the garbage - where it belongs," he told Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly. When asked if he was now collecting pucks by Panaccio, Pronger responded, "Why not? What's wrong? It's sitting there. What else is gonna happen to it? You got a problem with that?"
You got a problem with that? Who is this talking exactly? A 1980s WWF villain?
How does this happen exactly? It would be like walking past someone who has just wrapped their minutes old newborn baby in a blanket, going into the crib in the delivery room, grabbing the blanket and being like "DIS BLANKET GO IN DA GARBAGE."
This is exactly what it is like.
JACKING IS WRONG
Seriously Chris stealing is wrong. You should know better than that. It always comes back and screws you in the end.*
Like this one time we met this dude who used to be a bouncer at a local bar. Hey (insert massive monster who once threw us out of Nashvilles in the mall's name here) what's going on these days?" we asked in passing during a random exchange.
"Oh me?" he replied haughtily, "I'm buying the Joint at the mall. They are doing super badly and can't even pay their bills. We are going to get it for like next to nothing cause we have a special deal worked out. We basically jacked it from the old owners. I almost feel bad."
Now bear in mind that this guy was a mean ass dude. "Chris-Pronger-leaving-us-all-in-the-dust-and-dragging-the-City-through-the-mud-bad?" No not that bad, but certainly "had-no-neck-and-one-time-beat-our-buddy-up-at-his-own-birthday-party-at-Nashvilles-and-walked-around-with-a-scowl-and-scared-19-year-old-us-silly-bad."
And if we like anything at all, it's not living in mortal fear of the bouncer at our local bar. So this guy was bad news.
Anyways, he thought he was going to get the deal of the century on this bar, went around publicly running his mouth to everyone about it, then bought the thing and then the mall decided they weren't going to renew the lease on the space.
This guy ended up buying a bunch of useless bar crap that was valueless and the bar one day became a kitchen supply store or something.
Moral of the rambling tale: He tried to take something from someone else and that theft bit him in the face.
JACKING IS STILL WRONG
Speaking of guys who are bad news - stealing game pucks Chris? In the words of a random dude from long ago - "jacking" is wrong. Who are you to steal a Stanley Cup Final game puck from the other team when you lost games one and two?
Do you think that puck means more to you than Michael Leighton who returned from being pulled in Game 1 to win Game 2? Or perhaps that puck should be yours instead of the great Troy Brouwer?
Stealing crap will come back to haunt you Chris. This isn't a good time to accumulate bad karma.
But you major in that already don't you?
Man we hate Chris Pronger.
