Saving the 'real ducks'

Maybe it's just me, but I find this headline terrifically hilarious:

I know when the story filtered through the grapevine yesterday morning, by way of a PETA press release, the guys over at FanHouse weren't sure if Scott Niedermayer's involvement was even real or not.

(For what it's worth, good for him. Sure, there are better causes, but it's nice to see athletes get involved in things like this that they believe in.)

Do they eat penguins anywhere?

The headline under it is funnier.

First he drives a Preus, now he's working with PETA... anyone notice him at Lindsay Lohan's parties this summer? Seems to be fitting in quite well with the SoCal elite.

I've never felt one way or another about Niedermayer, but now I have nothing but disdain.
PETA? These enviro-wackos want to give human rights to apes, for cryin' out loud.
Stay retired. You risk further brain damage by trying to play again.

I don't know about penguins but Niedermayer's buddy Teemu Selanne loves reindeer meat with mashed potatoes.

Who'll save Dancer, Prancer etc.?

Is it any coincidence that the anti-compassion comments come from people hiding behind an "anonymous" identity? At least Scott signed his name to his letter. To stand up for victims of cruelty who have no voice must take a strong moral character. It is easy to see why he is the captain of his team. Way to go Scott!

iain, there is a big difference between standing up for animals that can't speak for themselves and the way PETA and their minions go about things.

That picture is hilarious though.
