Petr Griffin isn’t tickled by Peter Griffin’s antics

Red Wings interim back-up goalie and top prospect Petr Mrazek's received as much attention for the image of Family Guy's Peter Griffin on his goalie mask, which is a creation of something of a legend in the mask-painting industry in David Gunnarson, but MLive's Ansar Khan and the Detroit News's Ted Kulfan found out that just because Petr Mrazek may indeed be a "Super Griffin," that doesn't necessarily make him a fan of the show:

“Our (equipment manager Brad Thompson) in Grand Rapids gave me that idea because he said my name is Petr and I play for the Griffins, so they Peter Griffin on it,'' Mrazek said.

He said he has received some good comments about the design, which he had done about three weeks ago. But, he's not a fan of the show.

“I don't watch that show, I saw just a couple of commercials,'' Mrazek said. "But, I like the idea.''

Definitely not a fan, as the ever-blunt Mrazek told Kulfan:

"I've seen the commercials," Mrazek said. "I don't like the show."

Bummer. Killer mask and concept, but it’s a buzz kill that he hates the show.

really?? he’s a Czech and a goalie… he’s not really supposed to have a sense of humor if he’s doing it right.

I don’t think that he was saying that he hates the show. I think that he just doesn’t watch it as evidenced by his saying ” I saw just a couple of commercials ‘’. Probably a little bit of his original intent was lost in translation.

Good for him; Family Guy really isn’t that funny.
