Commodore rolling in it

Literally...


I know Commordore is a colorful individual and he's just having some fun but this probably isn't the message he or the Jackets want to be sending.

I think you've got to keep this stuff behind closed doors.

Hey as long as he plays well... which unfortunately for the defense at this moment is not the case.

Fire away - your thoughts on the photo?

I'm just relieved he has on pants...

LTL said...

Haha.. good point June.

Taken "tongue-in-cheek", it's seems like something I would have done years ago. Then again, Commodore is much younger than I am.

LTL, just saw on the Jackets website that they lifted the blackout on Center ice games (all of them).

Wally said...

At least he's not sending more revealing pictures of himself to fans... Didn't a guy from Toronto do that last year?

Max said...

That looks like something a guy much younger than Commodore should be doing. Is it funny? Yeah, I chuckled. Is it appropriate? Not at this point. Let's get in the + range, Mr. Commodore, then take all the sexy money pictures your heart can desire!

LTL, From where did this picture come? Is it recent?

Shaggy said...

I agree with Max. Sure, it's fun to have fun. It's more fun when you're winning. The team's not winning, and one of it's main reasons is the defense.

Start locking teams down, then you can swim in a Scrooge McDuck vault for all I care.

I actually grabbed it from a recent Puck-Daddy post.. Its from Facebook and I believe its recent -- say post signing his big free agent contract but I can't say for sure.

Here is the link (which Rick also pointed us to in an earlier post) --> http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy

I'm not a fan of this. Especially the double middle fingers. It's not very becoming for someone has yet to do jack shit for our hockey team.

If I had his money it would not just be me in bed with money. You would see a naked midget, maybe a gerbil or two, beer, and a stripper pole. You people need to get over what people do in their own time. When did someone say to you "You know what, you should judge people because you're perfect." Please...If you know anything about Commodore at all then you know he is all about having fun. Get a life people...

My first thought was "What the heck apartment was that in? Looks pretty crappy. Who's the crappy decorator?" My second was "Get some pants and a shirt on." Lastly, "Where's the bathroom? I'm gonna puke."

Didn't laugh. Don't care. Don't know why everything has to be anaylzed for some message and whether it's appropriate. He's trying to be funny, but it's been done before. Not very original.

Wow, look at the swanky pad he's lounging in ,too. Looks like he's really living it up. Commodore was a great player here in Raleigh (yes , I'm a Columbus native) and will be a great player for the Jackets too. When the goaltending decides to play to their abilities you'll see this in a different light.

Wow...give him a break. It would actually be nice to see some other Jackets show some personality on or off the ice.

Mattlund said...

I'll support his goofiness.

By my count only 3.5 players show any personality in interviews, etc.

Chimera, Leclaire, Commodore, and (sometimes) Klesla. Klesla gets a half point.

bucaroo said...

You would think he could afford a headboard maybe even a bed frame.Is that chewing tabacco on the table?

Max said...

I don't think he's giving two single-finger salutes, rather it looks like he's rubbing his cash together. Goofy? Yes. But let's win some games, then roll around in your green all you want. Hell, it looks like he's in a dorm room at OSU!!!

Llama64 said...

Trust me, he's not giving the double salute. It's just Commodore being... Commodore.

Goofing around with some dollar bills in his underwear.

It's been a few years since we had him in Calgary, but he's still one of the more loved players. I still see people sporting his trademark red afro at our arena.

He'll grow on you. He may be a doofus, but he's one of the more likeable, considerate players in the NHL.

Elisa said...

Oh my God I love it.

But I have to agree with June about the pants- dudes a hairball.

Deadspin.com got ahold of this post and there are some funny comments in there if anyone is interested: http://deadspin.com/5066023/afternoon-blogdome-this-is-how-you-get-people-interested-in-hockey

My fave:

At least we know now what hockey players DONT spend their salary on...

Mike Ricci - Teeth, or Anything Related. ($0)
Kelly Buchberger - Hairplugs ($0)
Sidney Crosby - Mortgage Payments ($0)
Rob Brind'Amore - Nose Reduction Surgery ($0)

and now...
Mike Commodore - Premium Bedding ($0)
