There are some pretty funny puns out there right now. "Burrows takes a bite out of Boston" He usually responds to criticism by playing even harder, thus the 2 goals and 1 assist on Sat night. It's funny, the other night Don Cherry sheepishly admitted that he had gnawed on a glove or two during his time playing, said the scrums that happened after the whistle involved the usual pushing and shoving, and often hair pulling and biting.
In all seriousness, it was a silly thing to do, but the smelly glove was in his mouth and even the linesman said to Bergeron, "hey, you stick your glove in someone's mouth, chances are they are going to bite it!" It's happened before, and it will probably happen again, but IMO it wasn't a game-changing infraction. He got a 4 minute penalty, which many think was the right call.
C'mon 'Nucks, win one on the road!!
Want to see some craziness...google youtube and find the video entitled "Bruins go into the stands" - it was the 70s and a rough time in hockey. I guess some of the New York fans were heckling the Bruins at the end of the game, and suddenly the players were leaping over the glass and into the stands and were BEATING on the fans!! It was an all-out brawl. The most ironic thing is, the player who took off a guy's shoe and proceeded to beat him with his own shoe is non other than Mike Millbury, who now does commentary for NBC and who said that Burrow's "biting" incident was despicable, should have been a suspension, and is harming the integrity of the league....this from a guy who beat a fan with his own shoe!! :ROFL
