Don’t get me wrong, I like hockey. I miss the NHL and am beyond frustrated with the lockout. I’m all for fan statements against the league and against Gary Bettman, but in this instance I am not in support. Xenia, Ohio native and Pittsburgh Penguins fan Maggie Wagner is fed up with the lockout too and instead of becoming an NBA fan, she decided to grow out her leg hair until the NHL sorts this out. Puck Daddy profiled Wagner today and her hairy idea came about back in September: She started to wonder what small personal protest she could offer against the NHL shutting its doors. So on 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 15, Wagner vowed not to shave her legs until the players and owners cut a deal. In theory it’s a great idea, a way to stick it to the NHL. Hell, she made it all the way to Yahoo! Sports so who am I to call her out for her tactics. Well, it’s photos like this that make me feel the way I do: If she was set on some sort of hair related protest, couldn’t she have just grown out her head hair? Far less repulsive AND she could’ve donated it to charity after the lockout ended. Nope! Not good enough for Maggie. She tweets to NHL players trying to get their attention. Guys like Mike Fisher and Dustin Penner have been subjected to these Sasquatch legs. I have got to give her props though because she was re-tweeted by Fisher moments after the tweet was posted. Impressive, but quotes like this, from the Puck Daddy interview, still leave a sour taste in my mouth: I will consider shaving the thickest part of my leg hair and sending it to (Gary Bettman) in the event of a cancelled season, yes. I’d have to get their address though! Almost makes me feel bad for Bettman…almost. She just got the address so Bettman better keep an eye out for a hairy envelope if today’s CBA proposal doesn’t go as planned. If you are an intern at the NHL League Offices this is your forewarning to quit before Bettman throws you on mail opening duties and you end up with a handful of leg hair.
