hockey players aren't pansies like some NBA players. I'd be embarrassed to have this guy on my team:
Now I admit, he was fouled, he did get a hand to the face. But the only reason he should have stayed down for as long as he did, clutching his face in agonizing pain, was if the Hornets player had plucked Bowen's eye out of its socket. Sure enough, after the trainers attended to him and helped him off the floor, he was smiling and ready to play, no visible gash anywhere on his face. I was so disgusted by his acting and P told me how this guy is known for his embellishments. I'd like to see Bowen take a puck to the face or a stick to the face like Drury did today:
Drury briefly went down but immediately got up and skated to the bench, blood pouring down his face, jersey, and onto the ice. I love hockey and the toughness the players exhibit every time they step onto the ice.
