A douchebag, a goalie, and Alex Ovechkin walk into the NHL Retail store....

by: Ben Berry -
OK, so Chris Pronger is a great defenseman, but he's also a tool. I've loathed him since well... forever. Perhaps before that, in the womb. Anyways, he's one of the chosen players to be part of the NHL's marketing campaign for the Winter Classic, which this year, will be played across the street from my apartment. Seriously, in the new digs I can see Fenway when I walk out the back door of our building out into the street. Anyways, the marketing event for the Winter Classic (which I'm so going to) is the day before Alex Ovechkin, marketing wunderkind and cover athlete for NHL 2K10, will be ringing up a few lucky folks for their pre-order of NHL 2K10. And for an even luckier few, play them in the Wii version of the game. As a fan of NHL titles, I'd love to drive down to NYC and get in line, but with the wedding coming up, I dont have the jack to spend on such a spree right now. Anyways, see the link below, and if you're in NYC, go get in line now.
