Unsportsmanlike Conduct: 9 Unexpected Attacks from Angry Athletes
AHL Goalie Barry Brust Gives Us His Best Ron Hextall Impersonation (Video)
What was with all the sports impersonations this weekend? First there was Inter’s Samuel Eto’o, who unleashed his inner Zinedine Zidane as he headbutted Chievo’s Cesar in the chest. And if that wasn’t enough, both the Raiders Richard Seymour and Ajax’s Luis Suarez decided to perform their own unique impersonations of “Iron” Mike Tyson, with the former using his fist and the latter using his teeth.
But perhaps the best impersonation of the weekend came during Saturday night’s AHL game between the Binghamton Senators and the Hartford Wolf Pack. Following a hard check-from-behind by the Wolf Pack’s Tim Kennedy on the Sens’ Derek Smith, Binghamton goaltender Barry Brust decided to take matters into his own hands as he chased Kennedy down and in true Ron Hextall-fashion, leveled him with a stiff blocker-glove combo to the face.
Brust would use that same blocker-glove combo to stop 40 pucks during the Sens’ 3-2 overtime loss, but I think it would be fair to say that the biggest mark he would leave on this game could be found on the face of Tim Kennedy.
