Noy G’s Hero of the Day

In an infrequent, if-I-do-it-just-once-more-after-this-it’ll-be-a-“series,” I’d like to announce the second Noy G Hero of the Day.

First, read this story: Man crashes Canadiens’ practice with ‘nothing to lose’

Noy G’s hero is not the crazy guy who crashed the ice and took a shot on goal. I mean, sure, that’s awesome and takes balls of solid rock (name that movie), but no, my hero today is:

Jose Theodore.

Why? Because of the way he handled the situation. With a sense of humor and humility. He didn’t storm off the ice. He didn’t pout about security and terrorists and crazy fans and whatnot. He played with the guy. He let the guy have his “Happy Gilmore” moment:

“He came at me with his head down so I just wanted to say ‘Welcome to the big boys.’ I poke-checked him to say, `You have to keep your head up.’ When he came back, I thought about going out of the net and not playing into his game, but then I thought he had the [courage] to go on the ice, so I let him have a free shot at me.”

(Ed’s note: It was ESPN that changed “balls” to “[courage],” not me.)

No stupid “what if he had a knife or a gun” crap. He let the idiots at the league office do that:

“But hopefully it will serve as a reminder to all of us of the importance and need for ensuring adequate security to safeguard the health and safety of our players.”

Really? How? Because no harm came to him? This was all in good fun.

So, today at The Noy G Show, we applaud the fun and sense of humor of Jose Theodore. And lucky for him, he made the save!

One response to “Noy G’s Hero of the Day

  1. Are you trying to condone the stabbing of Monica Selis just b/c she grunted a lot?

    On a (very slightly more)serious note, what if one of your paralegals or an applicant to be a paralegal showed up to a deposition you were taking and started screaming at the witness “you want the truth? You can’t handle the truth.” Would that be an indication of the sloidity of his (or her – aweful thought) testicles? I assume he would be fired on the spot and be carried off the premises and the story would make it’s way around the law firm world faster than you could say “Cadwalader partner snorting in the bathroom.”

    I do appreciate that Theodore played it cool but I wouldn’t have blamed him for decapitating this guy with his goalie stick just for being such an annoying loser not b/c he was in any danger.

    The only “good” explanation for doing such an annoying thing would be if it was part of a bet or a fraternity hazing. Otherwise the guy’s just looking for attention and is IMO a big loser.
