I have no way to confirm if this is true or not, but it's one of the more hilarious things I've seen in a while in terms of athlete autographs via The Faceoff Circle. And of course it involves uber-asshole Sean Avery.
Some Devils fan on the Spawn.com forum last week had a friend get an autograph from Sean Avery for some kid - and Avery must have found out he was signing for a Devils fan. What transpired next is classic, as Avery took a shot at Devils goalie Martin Brodeur in the process. I'll let our poster (whose grammar sucks) explain:
The thing to keep in mind is that this autograph was signed BEFORE Avery did his now infamous dance in front of Brodeur.
It's not quite the Vernon Wells autograph, but it'll do.
By the way, I think I know why Marty's a whiner, Sean. Because you're a total asshole. But a funny asshole, I'll give you that.
