Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
So I get into Detroit today at about 3 o’clock, and decide to take a drive to American Jewelry and Loan, the setting of the reality show “Hardcore Pawn” on TruTv. I’m a sucker for that show and others involving sales haggling, like “Pawn Stars” and “Storage Wars”, etc.
I was hoping the people I recognized from the show would be there, and I got that, and a whole lot more. Would you believe I also ran into former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty? It’s true – he works there now.
Honestly, swear on my kid’s head, I had no idea McCarty worked there now. None. But there he was, called out of the back room of the large store after I mentioned to Les Gold, the owner, that I was in town for the Avs-Wings game tomorrow and wrote about hockey. Les said, “Oh, we have Darren McCarty with us now, let me go get him.” If the cameras – which were filming in the store at the time – got my reaction, it should be a doozy. To say I was surprised would be an understatement.
