Real World: Fake NHL Tough Guys


Real World: Fake NHL Tough Guys

By Jon Fucile

Almost every hockey team has at least one player that is a huge wussy. Everyone knows the type. They'll throw a cross check or slash behind the refs back and run away when the opposing player responds. But once there is a ref or two in-between the wussy player and the player he has offended, all of a sudden the wussy player acts tough and tries to throw punches knowing the other player can't get to him.

Stupid fake tough guys.

What would happen if a bunch of these fake tough guys got together? Luckily MTV has us covered. With their Real World series getting stale and old, they've gone in a new direction.

So what would happen if a bunch of fake tough guys stopped being polite and started getting even wussier?

Heres a preview of the new season of the Real World.

Editor's note: RW: Fake Tough Guys tried to recruit the guy who threatened to beat up Shawn Thornton --Jim, no, Jared...wait... Jessica? Scott Walker? Oh, yeah, John Scott -- but nobody knew who, or where, he is. We conclude that he must not a real hockey player.

Watch as Mike Komisarek sucker punches a lady at a bar

And then has to answer to her son!

Chris Neil loses a fight with a cat, then throws kittens into a fire to prove he is super tough!

Jay Rosehill runs from a fight against tiny little Brad Marchand...but then kicks Marchands dog when Marchand isnt around!

Fake Tough Guys show their sensitive side when they fall in love and cuddle.

First hand looks at gut wrenching confessions you wont see from these tough guys anywhere else!

An ex-girlfriend comes back into the picture as Ott cheats on Avery, rocking the foundation of the Real World: Fake Tough Guys house!

The best part is we didnt make any of this up. Cant wait until the first episode!

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL

Tom Brady delivers video message at funeral of Navy SEAL

Tom Brady delivered a video message last week at the funeral of Navy SEAL Kyle Milliken, a Maine native and former UConn track athlete killed in Somalia on May 5.

Bill Speros of The Boston Herald, in a column this Memorial Day weekend, wrote about Milliken and Brady's message.   

Milliken ran track at Cheverus High School in Falmouth, Maine, and at UConn, where he graduated in 2001. Milliken lived in Virginia Beach, Va., with his wife, Erin, and two children.  He other Navy SEALs participated in a training exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011 where he met and posed for pictures with Brady.

Speros wrote that at Milliken’s funeral in Virginia Beach, Va., Brady's video offered condolences and thanked Milliken’s family for its sacrifice and spoke of how Milliken was considered a “glue guy” by UConn track coach Greg Roy.

Milliken had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, earning four Bronze Star Medals and was based in Virginia since 2004.  He was killed in a nighttime firefight with Al-Shabaab militants near Barij, about 40 miles from the Somali capital of Mogadishu. He was 38.

The Pentagon said Milliken was the first American serviceman killed in combat in Somalia since the "Black Hawk Down" battle that killed 18 Americans in 1993. 

In a statement to the Herald, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said: “It was an honor to host Kyle and his team for an exercise at Gillette Stadium in 2011. It gave new meaning to the stadium being known as home of the Patriots. We were deeply saddened to hear of Kyle’s death earlier this month.

“As Memorial Day weekend approaches, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by patriots like Kyle and so many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our rights as Americans. Our thoughts, prayers and heartfelt appreciation are extended to the Milliken family and the many families who will be remembering lives lost this Memorial Day weekend.”
