Prohockeytalk - If you haven’t seen this already, here’s former NHL player Andrei Nazarov, now coaching Vityaz Chekhov, swinging sticks at Dinamo Minsk fans in Belarus on Sunday. Apparently Nazarov went nuts when fans started throwing plastic bottles onto the ice.

Yawn. I didn’t even raise an eyebrow watching this shit. This is what I expect to happen in Russia. Somebody throws a water bottle on the ice and the coach just turns around and starts mashing people with a hockey stick till the Soviet military intervenes. Par for the course in my book. More importantly my question is whether I should start selling Barstool Soviet winter hats?

I’ve always had an affinity for these things. Just screams “my winter is worse than your winter. I’m tougher than you are. I drink more vodka than you do. I’m a bad ass and you’re not. I must break you”….etc.   That’s what those hats say to me. So maybe a Stool with a little hammer and sickle on the front? I’d buy one.
