So the other night I posted that now infamous video of Rob Ray reacting to something off camera while Ryan Miller is being interviewed. The video has been reposted on various Sabres blogs and even on Puck Daddy so I'm sure you've seen it by now. But like the most of you I'm sure, I can watch it over and over again and still get a kick out of it. So while I was watching it for the 27th time, I pursued the comments on YouTube and came across this comment:
I was listing to the morning show on WGR, and this came up. Howard Simon talked to Rob, and he said that the Candian Media was pushing and shoving; trying to get to the front. So apparrently he's doing this to the media
Hmm...could that be it? I can see why the Canadian media would be extra pushy considering it was Miller's first game back after being sidelined with an injury, so they would want to interview him...but it's a little disappointing to be honest. I was really hoping it was something more funny like him seeing a naked player out in the open in front of all the cameras and the reporters. I can see it. The player (you can decide which player it is) is all, "Screw it...I'm taking a shower." and he just strips naked and strolls to the showers disregarding the media that's swarming the locker room. Hey, if you're going to walk into a locker room full of sweaty guys undressing, you're just going to have to deal with the "consequences" (and by "consequences" I mean being surrounded by naked professional athletes). I'm sure Rayzor has seen a naked hockey player or two in his day, but not when there's a room full of cameras and reporters. Rob probably just wants to keep the true source of his shock a secret, so he came up with that lame "the Canadian media was being mean and pushing everybody" excuse to quiet all of us who are curious. I'm sure when the media gets too crazy in the locker room, Rayzor wouldn't mind stepping in and policing those folks.
Ah, the locker room after an important hockey game must be such a shit show that I want to witness. How do I go about getting one of those fancy press passes...
