For anyone who is familiar with Sean Avery's work during his playing days, this story may not come as much of a surprise.

After all, we're talking about a guy whose wicked tongue was often more active than his stick. The same guy that was suspended for six games after calling fellow NHLers out for falling in love with his "sloppy seconds."

Four years removed from the game, it appears that Avery is hellbent on defining his life after hockey with the same immaturity that plagued his villainous NHL career.

Avery, like many professional athletes in the digital era, seems to have developed a penchant for posting his transgressions on social media. Yet instead of using a stack of $100 bills as a phone, or tweeting his heterosexuality using the term "no homo," Avery has taken to harassing vagrants on the streets on New York City.

If this seems like a sick joke, you're not alone.

But if you ask the man himself, this has all been blown way out of proportion.

Nothing quite like googling the word 'harassment' to dig yourself out of a hole (or is it 'harrasement'? I can never spell that one correctly).
