Where you at PETA? Huh, tough guys? You want a battle with athletes who drop ducks like Joe Namath dropping empties? We suggest you find some really tough guys because we’ll have former NHLers Mike Ricci and Owen Nolan in our corner. Didn’t think so. Anyway, these old teammates have been slaying wildlife this fall. Ducks, salmon, deer, largemouth bass & even a giant hog has been bagged. Good to see a thinning of those damn ducks.  At first we were like, “Is that Mike Ricci? Can’t be, the nose isn’t big enough.” But then the photo was opened up and, yep, there was that famous schnoz that became famous during the Colorado Avalanche Stanley Cup run in 1996. Owen Nolan, now seemingly retired for good after being released by Vancouver in training camp, is now officially our go-to source for athletes killing wildlife. You’d be surprised how much hate mail we get after running these pics. Keep the hate coming, morons. We’ll just be over here rooting on Owen as he kills more of these little bastard ducks that are always taking a dump in our pool. If gun laws weren’t in effect in this subdivision, we’d be dropping the deuce bombers ourselves. mail@bustedcoverage.com [@OwenNolan11]
