A while back, David Singer at HockeyFights.comdid an interview with tough guy Brandon Sugden. Along with the interview, HockeyFights.com also had a draw to give away a couple signed Sugden bobbleheads and I was one of the winners.Well, my wobbly-headed fighter boy arrived in today's mail, and I couldn't be happier. But despite being very well-packaged, the postal service wasn't so gentle and Sugden didn't survive the trip quite the way he would've liked. In fact, he took a bit of an ass-kicking...His trademark salute? Well, one arm broke off. And his head? Ummmm... that bobbly bit just won't stay on.
But I ask you this: Could there be ANY more perfect Sugden bobblehead than this one? No way. And even missing his left hook and his head, I'm guessing he would still kick someone's ass in a fight. So I'll get out some glue and patch him up as many a team doctor has done before, no doubt.(Thanks, David. I love this thing.)Sugden announced his retirement only a couple weeks ago. For more about his career, check out his fight cards here and some other stuff on YouTube.It's amazing the guy survived long enough to retire voluntarily. Three cheers for Sugar!
