On Thursday, two strange tweets showed up on the Twitter page of New York Rangers center Brad Richards that made it seemed like yet another professional athlete had their account hacked.

We suspected either someone was either framing Tommy Lee of Motley Crue or the drummer best known for documenting his, ahem, exploits with Pam Anderson had become a super hacker.

Turns out Richards was still logged into his account from his New York City hotel and with the Crue on tour in the Northeast, Lee just happened to hop on the right computer and played Good Samaritan by informing the Rangers' star of his goof, while signing him out at the same time.

Richards later found out it really was Lee and told him he was definitely coming to a Rangers game at some point this season.

So next time you forget to sign out of your Twitter account in a big city hotel, rest assured that some member of a 1980s hair band will rescue you.
