Fighting Was His Ticket To The NHL

from Ed Willis of the Vancouver Province,

Unlike others who pursued his line of work, Craig Coxe was never resentful or, for that matter, conflicted about what was expected of him.

Hooter Shooter and Cowan the Brabarian are the best two. Cash Cow is pretty good. J.C. Superstar doesn’t quite have the zing.
Heavy Eric even has a song out already, Cowan Days (to Purple Haze—“Excuse me while I hit this guy”).
The centre of all this attention doesn’t seem to quite know what to make of the hip-hip-her-bra.
