(Ed. Note: Our series "Puck Daddy's Guilty Pleasures" features puckheads from all walks of life answering questions about their own hockey-related guilty pleasures. It will run daily during the month of August. Have a suggestion for a "Guilty Pleasures" guest blogger? Hit us on email. Enjoy!)
1. The Player You Most Love To Hate
The player I most love to hate is Sean Avery(notes) of the New York Rangers, because he's dated an Olsen twin and Elisha Cuthbert! Ladies, if you're looking for a real man (that doesn't wear pads, except in my suits), text me haha …
2. Other Than Your Own, The Team You Can't Help Rooting For
My home team is an AHL team, the Lake Erie Monsters. I'm a big supporter of them, and they love me (goes without saying)! They are birthed from a giant monster every night right onto the ice! Since I was a kid I adopted the Detroit Red Wings as my pro team, they were always fighting for the cup and have had such well rounded teams.
3. Favorite Fight or Brawl of All-Time
Favorite fight was recently, when the two goalies (Brent Johnson(notes) of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Rick DiPietro(notes) of the New York Islanders) threw off their gloves and met at center ice, there was a huge build up, then one punch later it was all over! Kind of like what would happen whenever anyone challenges me in a WWE ring! You hear that Scotty Bowman, I'm not afraid of you!
4. The Hideous-Looking Hockey Jersey You Secretly Love The Most
I used to hate the Mighty Ducks, because I thought they became a team since the Disney movie was popular, haha, but even they had a great team a few seasons back haha #knucklepuck
5. Your Favorite Hockey Cliché (terminology, traditions, announcer-speak, etc.)
"In the crease" is my favorite thing to yell to my buddies ha ha. A goalie was "standing on his head" is great for when a goalie is stopping everything that makes me laugh! Also this makes no sense to my friends, except for c-note, c-man, and sexton! (you're welcome, eh)
6. The Injury You Couldn't Stop Staring At (Non-Skate Lacerations Only)
I hate seeing injuries, but I love big time hits! Especially when it's on a pretty boy center.... Wham! Not so pretty now! #EnforcersHitHarder #ZigZag
7. Your Favorite Cheesy Hockey Reference in Popular Culture
Anyone who says hockey is boring, doesn't understand! It's not just about goals, it's nonstop excitement mixed with skill, toughness (sounds familiar… WWE anyone?) and the ability to have a hottie kiss your toothless face afterwards … same thing happens to me @HEELZiggler #Perfection
7a. Your Favorite Terrible Hockey Card Or Hockey Action Figure.
The hockey figure on the restaurant in Wayne's World! By the way Wayne, way to re-introduce wearing a hockey jersey in public and Bohemian Rhapsody .... SHWING!!! CAR! ...interview on!
8. Finally, What's The Thing You Secretly Respect Gary Bettman For The Most?
Bettman is known for getting boos and I laugh every time (although I know the feeling), but at least the finals aren't all on the VS network! That year I couldn't find a bar, a satellite dish, or other establishment that carried the finals! But I kept looking; at least you won't have as much trouble finding SummerSlam on Pay-Per-View Sunday August 14th (cheap plug!)
