Bobby in the buff

Well, apparently there's a new art exhibition in New York that features former NHL greats pulling a Tlusty and posing nude — and some of the greats (who didn't actually take part in any of the art-making) aren't all that thrilled with the whole thing:
Not everyone is a fan. Orr didn't return calls about the paintings. And former Bruin Brad Park, who played briefly alongside Sanderson and Orr and looked at the works online, said he "would not walk across the street to view this art."

"I see a picture of Bobby with some genitals, and a picture of Turk with some genitals. That's hard to take," said Park. "I definitely would think Bobby would be uncomfortable with it. Derek, in his heyday, would have posed for it."
If anyone's interested in taking in the exhibition, it's at Deitch Projects gallery, which I believe is near Greenwich Village. Someone may want to alert the hockey media, as I'm sure there'll be photos of all this out online in the near future.

This has disgraced the Bruins' and Rangers' organizations.

..., but, not as much as Damien Cox has disgraced the hockey media.

So, some guy has a fetish for painting his fave hockey players buff. It is disturbing, but not exactly horrific.

This will expose the NHL's (genital) warts for all to see!

LOL.

I always liked Brad Park.
