Playing the Field: NHL fans sending their beards to Gary Bettman and Marcus Vick is at it again

Hey Smurfette, send in your damn beard!

Outside of a package that could cause, ya know, actual death, there is absolutely nothing worse than receiving hair in the mail.

You know the feeling. That hair could have come from anywhere! An ex-girlfriend, the nether regions of your ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend, the nether regions of your Uncle Tony who took you on A LOT of fishing trips growing up or that A-hole who stole your cat three months ago.

So imagine the horror today at the NHL offices when they receive dozens and dozens of gangly black, brown, auburn, red, purple and blonde hair samples that may or maynot have blue cheese still stuck in them from the wing night before Halloween. That’s right, NHL fans have found a most creative way to let Gary Bettman know they don’t really approve of what’s going on right now with the lockout … they are sending him an early Christmas gift in the form of HAIR!!!

Marcus always has Mike’s back

Marcus Vick, brother of Mike, is at it again on Twitter. Two weeks back we highlighted Marcus’ disdain for everyone on the Eagles’ offense other than his brother.

Now, no coach is safe around Marcus and he is openly rooting for Eagles’ opponents.

@MVFive came out with these gems recently, even though Mike had told him to stop being so vocal on the interwebs.

 On the Jets:
“If the NY Jets don’t start Tim Tebow next Sunday it’s time for Rex Ryan to go…… #mythoughts ”

On Redskins QB Robert Griffin:
“RG III was born to play quarterback for the Redskins……#savior ”

On Eagles head coach Andy Reid:
“Yeaaaaa! Try everything n your handbook to save your ass FATBOY!!!!”
