Hockey oddities I stumbled across today.EXAMPLE #1From ESPN"Goalie ticketed for lewdness after mooning fans"
NORTH LOGAN, Utah -- A University of Southern California hockey goalie put on a show, but it had nothing to do with stopping shots.Mickey Meyer rode his stick like a horse, dropped his bulky pants, mooned the crowd and slapped his buttocks during a game against Brigham Young University, police said. He was ejected and ticketed for lewdness, a misdemeanor, after an officer who was working security at the rink said he witnessed the scene Saturday."I had my fill of these refs," Meyer said on an Internet broadcast of the game, according to The Herald-Journal of Logan.Meyer's antics occurred while play was stopped and referees were trying to sort out penalties in the third period of a consolation game in the ACHA West Regional tournament at Eccles Ice Center.The junior from Clinton, N.Y., was "riding his hockey stick like a horse and slapping his butt," North Park Officer Mike Stauffer said in a report.After pulling down his pants, Meyer slapped his bare bottom several times, Stauffer said.
EXAMPLE #2Wisconsin, 1929-- Back when men were men, and hockey players were aliens.note: things really hadn't improved much by 1938 either.
