back for seconds
You’d be tempted to conjure up F. Scott Fitzgerald’s oft-quoted maxim that “there are no second acts in American lives” while absorbing the news that Sean Avery is back in the National Hockey League as the New York Rangers claimed him on re-entry waivers from the Dallas Stars today, a move long expected.

But then, Fitzgerald was probably never a hockey fan. Plus, Avery is Canadian. So all’s fair game on Broadway for the rest of this season.

Since this is a reunion for Avery and the Blueshirts, it’s only appropriate to take into consideration the scandalous “sloppy seconds” slip that got him into trouble in Dallas, and dovetail it with his return to Madison Square Garden. Presumably, he’ll be watching his mouth a little more during his current NHL tour of duty.

UPDATE - Well, this just ain’t right ;)

Don’t ask me why the NYTimes/Blogrunner singles out this blog for such momentous news. It just does.
