Earlier this week renowned hockey pest Sean Avery got waived by the NY Rangers. And, to no ones surprise, not a single team claimed him, proving that the market for fashion-forward ice nuisances is pretty much non-existent even after the year and playoffs Brad Marchand had for Boston last year.

Thats how badly no one wants Sean Avery.

And times are already hitting Avery hard. He was seen in Stockholm by our buddies over at shopping for some new furniture at Ikea.

Not really Avery

So whats Sean to do now with all that free time? Rot away on some AHL team? Head over to the KHL? Hell no. A man with his talents, skills and creativity needs to be let free to blossom.

Its time for him to dive headfirst into the world of fashion. decided to give Avery a chance and hired him for a few days to be the studios official Fashion Guru. First up, everyones favorite Great American Hockey Show co-host, Mike Giardi.

Heres what Mike looks like around the office.

And then after a weekend shopping spree:

A mild improvement by the Office Fashion Guru. Maybe hell have better luck with his next victim err client.

Avery quickly ran out for some new digs for the trio. He even put together a new sports-show meets comedy sitcom pilot together for them.

Even the Wicked Good Sports crew wasnt spared from Averys wrath.

And when he was done with us:

So that experiment went horribly. It was worth a try. I guess hell just have to rot in the AHL or something. Anyways, remember Averys motto kids:

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
