Patriots fans have probably already erased Bart Scott's wrestling-like promo that ran after the Jets eliminated the Patriots from the playoffs from their memories.

We half expected the Ultimate Warrior to run out in the middle of the interview and challenge Scott to a match at Wrestlemania. Apparently lil' Barty was just warming up for some "real" wrestling.

Bart Scott recently started doing some "work" for a little wrestling company called Total Nonstop Action, or TNA for short. Former Olmypic gold medalist and current TNA performer Kurt Angle is from Pittsburgh and Bart Scott came down to start some trouble with Kurt!

The storylines write themselves.

It was a poorly executed promo, complete with the expected bad acting, bad fight scene and fake injury to Scott. Brilliant.

The funny part is the wrestling world and the real life Jets actually are not that far apart. Rex Ryan is always cutting promos about how his team is the best and guaranteeing Super Bowl wins (he's 0-2 on those guarantees so far) and Bart Scott has threatened to end careers.

Maybe the two worlds should merge. It would give everybody something to do if there's a lockout.

Rex Ryan would be in the ring cutting a promo:

Then Belichick's music would hit and he'd storm into the ring and the fight would be on:

Oh no! The bigger, fatter Rex Ryan has Bill in a chokehold!

But Belichick reverses the move and slams Fatty McFatfat!

He goes for the cover.... 1....2....3!!!!! It is over!

The next day Bart Scott would start running his mouth about how Belichick's victory was a fluke and how he was going to take it out on Wes Welker. He'd say Wes Welker's days in a uniform are numbered after Welker makes several foot fetish comments towards Rex Ryan.

Then the lights would go off. When the lights come back on Welker would be standing behind Scott. As Scott turns around, Welker kicks him in the stomach and then gives Scott a vicious Welker Stunner!

Welker puts Scott over his head and readies him for the Welker Slam!

Bart Scott has to be carried from the ring after the brutal beating Welker dishes out:

Welker is cracking a few cold ones back in the ring in celebration!

You know, maybe this football-wrestling merger needs to happen. This scenario is infinitely better than the lame smack talk and slap fights current NFL players get in. If only.

Saturday, Dec. 3: Vesey couldn't be happier with Rangers

Saturday, Dec. 3: Vesey couldn't be happier with Rangers

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while looking to avoid any and all updates on Kanye West. I’ve officially maxed out on my Kanye updates for the next four or five years. 

*Jimmy Vesey left a trail of broken hearts and hard feelings across the NHL this summer, but he’s happy in New York with the Rangers. 

*There is still a pathway for the NHL players to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics, says FOH (Friend of Haggs) Chris Johnston, but I’m pretty skeptical about it and have been for a few years now. I just don’t see it happening in South Korea. 

*The New York Islanders are reportedly looking for a big name executive to take over their entire hockey operation. 

*Speaking of the Islanders, Alain Vigneault is using them as an example of parity in the NHL to motivate the Rangers.

*A big blow for the Detroit Red Wings as they’ve lost gritty forward Justin Abdelkader for the next few weeks. 

*Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion is looking to add depth to their roster as the Sens appear in it to at least get a playoff spot this year. That is bad news for anybody that likes to watch, you know, entertaining hockey and stuff. 

*PHT writer and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Halford says that the Colorado Avalanche core group has come under heavy scrutiny as they’re struggling again this season. 

*For something completely different: Saving the bees is a year-round job that everybody should be interested in based on their impact across the world. 

Beleskey knocked out of Bruins game with lower body injury

Beleskey knocked out of Bruins game with lower body injury

The Bruins have added another injury to their current collection of banged-up players. 

This time it’s scrappy left winger Matt Beleskey, who was knocked out of Saturday’s game in Buffalo in the first period with a check thrown at his lower body. Beleskey was hit with a body check targeting his right leg at center ice from Buffalo forward Tyler Fedun, and skated gingerly to the bench before eventually heading back to the dressing room. 

There was no penalty called on a borderline hit that seemed to be targeting Beleskey’s leg. The Bruins announced in the middle of the second period that he was done for the day with a lower body injury. Beleskey finished the day with three registered hits and was 1-for-2 in the faceoff circle with six shifts for 5:27 of ice time in the second period. 

The 28-year-old Beleskey had managed to stay pretty healthy this season to this point, but was underachieving a bit offensively with two goals and five points along with a minus-6 rating in 23 games this season.
