Damn Gloves…

April 22, 2011


I hate it when that happens. You score a goal in the other team’s building and go to give a standard backwards closed fist salute to their fans and you’re friggin glove gets stuck in an awkward position!

That’s what “happened” to the Bruins’ Andrew Ference after scoring a goal in the 2nd period thursday night to bring Boston within one goal of the Montreal Canadiens in game 4 of the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Ference had this to say:

“It looks awful,’’ Ference said. “I just saw it. I can assure you that’s not part of my repertoire. I don’t know if my glove got caught up or what. I can assure you that’s not part of who I am or what I ever have been. It looks awful. I admit it. I completely apologize to how it looks.

Yeah, so for all of you out there thinking about trying out at your favorite franchise’s mini-camp this weekend — and I know there’s at least handful of ya — consider this your public service announcement for the day foreseeable future.

Rumor has it that during Holt’s days at N.C. State he used to tie one arm behind his back during receiving drills. That may or may not help explain things. 

Either way, I’m adding this revelation to an already long list of reasons why I haven’t made a living catching a lot of balls.  Make the jump for a clip of Torry discussing his “trophy” of a finger at a recent Jaguars press conference.
