The Hockey Gods Love a Good Joke

imageI've always loved Todd Bertuzzi and want him to do well, so I'm glad he's being embracedinDetroit. But hell, some of this stuff is hard to stomach.From Helene St. James at the Detroit Free Press:
Draper joked that now that Bertuzzi is a Wing, he'll "get a lifetime supply of Cheli's chili, just like all the rest of us in here," a jovial dig at Chelios' penchant for promoting his restaurants. Chelios followed through, though, promising, "I'm getting Todd some coupons, T-shirts, hats, whatever he wants." Already the Wings are embracing a guy described by Naslund as a great teammate."Ask anyone that's played with him," Naslund said. "He's well respected among his own teammates."It was respect for Chelios that prompted Bertuzzi to enter that restaurant last year and pay homage to a kindred player."Cheli is that consummate warrior," Bertuzzi said. "He's that guy that when you think of the NHL, you think of him. You've got to pay the guy respect, man. We had some wars, and everything I would give, he would keep coming back for more."
God, I'm gonna gag on this Cheli Chilli Crap sooner or later.____________________ *photo by Julian H. Gonzalez/Detroit Free Press
