Tom Semioli: Sports Marketing and the Struggle for Gay Rights: Made for Each Other!
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
Sports, in particular baseball, is about to give itself a huge, public pat on the back with the theatrical release of 42, a highly anticipated biographical film on the life of Jackie Robinson -- the first African American to play Major League Baseball in the modern era, and, of course, one of the most important civil rights champions of the 20th century. In an American culture which primarily worships celebrity for the sake of celebrity, this is a good thing. Jackie Robinson changed America for the better through his actions on and off the field. Though we still live in a country plagued with racism, as evidenced by the undeniable vitriol spread on every conceivable communicative platform solely based on the skin color of President Barack Obama, Robinson's heroics, along with those of his supportive teammates and fans, is a tale worth retelling. You do not have to give a hoot about baseball to have been affected by the courage, determination, and sacrifices made by Jack Roos ...

Ian Carey: When Will We See Openly Gay Players in the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL?
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
"TU ERES MARICON" was the phrase printed on Yunel Escobar's eye black that has upset so many, resulted in a three game suspension for the Blue Jays shortstop, and opened up discussion about the acceptance of gays in sports. If you wanted to count on your fingers how many openly gay athletes there are in the NHL, MLB, NFL, or NBA you could do it while wearing mittens, there are none. With it being estimated that 10 percent of the population is gay, the fact that there is not one openly gay athlete in any of these leagues has led many to the conclusion that gay athletes in these sports are afraid of coming out. John Amaechi is a former NBA player who waited until his career was over to come out and announce he is gay. When asked how come he didn't come out during his playing days and how he thought his teammates and the league would react to an openly gay player Amaechi stated "It would be like an alien dropping down from space. There'd be fear, then panic: they just wo ...

An Unhappy Split
Fan 590 - almost 5 years
10:42PM Eastern The Blue Jays almost dug themselves out of a three-run hole in Anaheim Sunday, but just couldn’t push that final run across, falling to the Angels but winding up with a split of a four-game series on the road against what will wind up being one of the better teams in baseball. As I said on The Twitter right after the game (you can follow me @wilnerness590, by the way), you can’t be upset with splitting a four-game series on the road, but you also can’t be happy about it after winning the first two games of the series. Drew Hutchison put together a lovely fifth starter’s start, but he goes into the record books as the first pitcher ever to cough up a home run to the Angels incarnation of Albert Pujols.  Albert ended his longest career homer drought – and the longest EVER to start a season by a player with at least 400 career big flies – by taking Hutchison deep to left in the fifth inning, a two-run shot that put the Halos up 4-1 at the time.  It was his 111th at-b ...

Monzo Minor: 7 Games Later, Rangers Move On
CBS New York - almost 5 years
By Brian Monzo » More Columns It took seven games. Seven hard fought games. But in the end, the Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Rangers were the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference, and that allowed them to have home-ice advantage if a series were to go seven games. That may be one of the biggest reasons the Blueshirts are moving on. Last night’s Game 7 was exactly what everyone thought it would be. It was low scoring and stressful for fans of both teams. As usual, Henrik Lundqvist was the Rangers’ best player, making 26 saves to preserve the 2-1 series clinching win. The game started fast, with both teams getting chances. The refs did a nice job of letting the players play and not making any weak calls almost throughout the entire game. The second period is when all the scoring happened. Rangers rookie Chris Kreider forced a turnover, allowing Derek Stepan to find Marc Staal to bury the puck. Minutes l ...

PHOTOS: Kelly Osbourne Wears 7 Outfits In 1 Night
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Hosting an awards show requires plenty of costume changes, as Anne Hathaway proved at the 2011 Oscars (with plenty of help from Rachel Zoe). But Kelly Osbourne truly stepped up to the plate as host of the NewNowNext Awards, held by Logo on Thursday night. Serving as the host as well as a nominee in the "Beyond Style" category, Kelly wore a whopping SEVEN different outfits throughout the evening -- and we actually really liked several of of them. For the red carpet, the "Fashion Police" co-host kept things simple in a metallic cocktail dress with a cowl neck. But she didn't stay in it for long, switching into (among other things) a Dorothy costume, superhero-inspired outfit (cape included!), an awesome orange maxi skirt and a rather flattering black evening gown. Kelly is know for her daring sense of style (we are, after all, talking about a 27-year-old with gray hair), but she really brought her A-game for her hosting gig. Perhaps it's because she was facing off aga ...

  • 2009
    Age 28
    In the summer of 2009, Avery opened Warren 77, a sports bar named after its address in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood at 77 Warren Street.
    More Details Hide Details On opening night, many figures from the hockey world were present, including Brendan Shanahan, Ken Daneyko and Henrik Lundqvist. The décor was meant to reflect an old New York style, with Andy Warhol originals and pictures of icons on the walls, as well as pictures of the New York Rangers, past and present. Matt Abramcyk, a former art dealer, and Chris Miller, co-owner of the Beatrice Hotel, are co-owners of the bar.
    He was a guest on a 2009 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon; a Top Ten List presenter on a 2009 episode of Late Show with David Letterman; a guest judge on Project Runway: All Stars in 2012; and appeared on Fashion Police in 2013.
    More Details Hide Details He was on People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2007 list. On March 4, 2014, he was announced as one of the celebrities who will take part in the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars. He partnered with Karina Smirnoff. The two were the second couple to be eliminated on week 2 after a double elimination. Avery is mentioned in the bestselling book Odd Man Rush: A Harvard Kid's Hockey Odyssey from Central Park to Somewhere in Sweden—with Stops along the Way by Bill Keenan.
    In 2009, Avery worked with men's fashion label Commonwealth Utilities to present a clothing line for Fashion Week in New York City.
    More Details Hide Details Avery was hired to be the face of Hickey Freeman's Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign, shot by Francesco Carrozzini. The print ads have appeared in Vanity Fair, DC Modern Luxury and other magazines. One ad featured a racy and scantily-clad Avery with a female model, while the others offered city scenes of Avery in plaid suits sporting sunglasses. Avery stars in the 2013 campaign for 7 For All Mankind, A Beautiful Odyssey, a trio of shorts directed by James Franco. The films explore themes of love and passion through their portrayal of a white wedding on a California beach at sunset, with a potential love triangle looming. Avery also appears in the print ads. Avery played a small role in the 2005 Maurice Richard biopic The Rocket: The Legend of Rocket Richard, portraying former New York Rangers defenseman Bob Dill. Avery appeared in a 2007 episode of MADtv with Kings teammates Tom Kostopoulos and Scott Thornton.
  • 2008
    Age 27
    In 2008, New Line Cinema put into development a film based on Avery’s life, focusing on his status as a professional athlete with an active interest in fashion, including a summer internship at Vogue.
    More Details Hide Details Stan Chervin, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Moneyball (2011), was hired to write the script.
    In June 2008, Avery guest-edited Mensvogue.com, the website for Men's Vogue magazine.
    More Details Hide Details His interest mainly resides with women's fashion; of men's fashion Avery has said, “You do suits and pants and that's about that. Women's clothes tell a story. That's what's interesting to me.”
    In April 2008, it was announced that Avery would be spending the summer offseason interning at Vogue magazine.
    More Details Hide Details
    On December 2, 2008, prior to the Stars' morning skate in preparation for a game against the Calgary Flames, Avery approached the assembled reporters in the dressing room and stated, “I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds.
    More Details Hide Details I don't know what that's about, but enjoy the game tonight.” At the time, Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf was dating Avery’s ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert (the pair married in 2012), and Kings center Jarret Stoll was dating model Rachel Hunter (the pair was engaged in 2009, but the wedding was called off), another ex-girlfriend. Within hours, the NHL suspended Avery indefinitely for "conduct detrimental to the league or the game of hockey". His comments were met with near-unanimous condemnation by the Stars organization, fellow players, and fans alike. Stars owner Tom Hicks said that the team would have suspended Avery had the NHL not acted first. Avery apologized the next day, calling his actions "inappropriate" and "a bad attempt to build excitement for the game". On December 5, the NHL fixed Avery's suspension at six games, retroactive to the December 2 game against the Flames. He agreed to undergo anger management counseling due to what the NHL called unacceptable and antisocial behavior. Commissioner Gary Bettman noted that both he and league disciplinarian Colin Campbell had warned Avery several times before about his behavior. On December 14, after the last game of Avery's suspension, the Stars announced that Avery would not return to the team. One factor in the Stars decision was that coach Dave Tippett and several of the players, including Mike Modano and Marty Turco, let it be known they weren't willing to take him back on the team.
    On November 1, 2008, following a game with the Stars against the Boston Bruins, Avery was accused of shouting obscenities at a fan who had been heckling him during the game.
    More Details Hide Details A report of complaint was filed with the NHL, but no action was taken.
    Avery scored 3 goals in 23 games before he and the team parted ways following his six-game suspension by the NHL in December 2008, due to controversial remarks made about fellow players.
    More Details Hide Details The Stars placed Avery on waivers on February 7, 2009. After clearing waivers on February 9, 2009, Avery was assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers' AHL affiliate, although he remained a member of the Stars organization (that season, the Stars had no AHL affiliate). On March 2, Avery was placed on re-entry waivers by Dallas, and claimed by the Rangers the following day. On January 5, 2010, in a game against the Stars, his former team, Avery recorded one goal and three assists. On October 4, 2011, the Rangers waived Avery. The following day, he cleared waivers and was assigned to New York’s affiliate, the Connecticut Whale of the AHL. On October 31, 2011, the Rangers placed Avery on 24-hour re-entry waivers. The move was done to bring him up as a replacement for the injured Mike Rupp. He cleared waivers and re-joined the Rangers for their November 5 game against the Montreal Canadiens. Despite playing less than 10 minutes in all 15 games he played for the Rangers that season, he scored 3 goals. After being a healthy scratch for nine games, Avery was once again placed on waivers on December 30, 2011. Since no NHL team claimed him, he returned to the AHL's Connecticut Whale. His last game played with the Whale was on January 27, 2012. He was left off the Whale's Clear Day list of players eligible to play for the remainder of the AHL season submitted on March 5, and told to no longer report to games or practices.
    Avery signed a four-year, $15.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars on July 2, 2008.
    More Details Hide Details He had been a roommate of the Stars' co-general manager Brett Hull when the two played for the Red Wings. Hull thought the Stars needed more fire and emotion on the ice, and felt Avery would fit the bill.
    On April 13, 2008, during game three of a first round playoff game against the New Jersey Devils, Avery turned his back on the play in order to face and screen Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur during a two-man advantage on the power play.
    More Details Hide Details He waved his hands and stick in front of Brodeur in an attempt to distract him and block his view. The puck was later cleared out of the Devils' zone but on the second Rangers offensive attack, Avery scored a power play goal. Although screening is a commonly used tactic (especially on the power play), notable in this instance was that Avery had spent the initial part of the play facing Brodeur while ignoring the puck, with his back to the play (normally, the player screening the goaltender is facing the play). The following day, the NHL issued an interpretation of the league's unsportsmanlike conduct rule to cover actions such as the one employed by Avery, which would now result in a minor penalty. This became known colloquially as "The Avery Rule". Avery's tactics during that series against the Devils earned multiple power plays, and he scored in each of the first three games. His controversial yet effective antics helped lead the Rangers to a 4–1 series win. At the end of the series, Brodeur refused to shake Avery's hand. In an interview after game 5 when asked about the handshake line, Avery replied, "Fatso forgot to shake my hand".
    On February 16, 2008, in a game against the Buffalo Sabres, Avery scored a goal 10 seconds into the game, setting a record for fastest goal scored by a Ranger on home ice.

    On August 1, 2007, Avery, as a restricted free agent, earned an arbitration award of $1.9 million for the 2007–08 season, which the Rangers accepted, keeping him with the team for at least another year.

  • 2005
    Age 24
    Avery led the league in penalty minutes for the second consecutive season in 2005-06, with 257.
    More Details Hide Details With three games remaining, the Kings unofficially suspended Avery for the remainder of the season after he refused to do a drill in practice. Nevertheless, the team re-signed him to a one-year deal. During his time with the Kings, Avery has been said to have mocked Dustin Brown about his lisp. Former LA King, Ian Laperriere, said it "was bullying, like you might see in high school." But according to other players and coaches, Brown's lisp was not Avery's target, Brown's then girlfriend, now wife, Nicole was. Avery did not think Nicole Brown was glamorous enough to be a "girlfriend of a hockey player in Hollywood." Brown admits the bullying might have affected him in ways that he did not realize. On February 5, 2007, in the middle of the 2006–07 season, Avery was traded to the New York Rangers. After joining the Rangers, he scored 20 points in 29 games to help the team complete a 17–4–6 end-of-season run to qualify for the playoffs. On March 17, Avery recorded a single-game career-high four points (one goal and three assists) against the Boston Bruins in a 7–0 victory. Avery played in his first career playoff game on April 12 against the Atlanta Thrashers, recording his first playoff points with a goal and an assist.
  • 2004
    Age 23
    During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Avery briefly played in the Finnish Elite League with the Lahti Pelicans, and in the United Hockey League for the Motor City Mechanics.
    More Details Hide Details Along with 149 penalty minutes in just 16 games, he tallied 26 points for the Mechanics, including two hat tricks, making him the first player in Mechanics history to record two hat tricks in one season. Several players spoke publicly of their dissatisfaction with the NHL Players' Association’s leadership during the lockout, including Avery, who publicly blamed NHLPA president Bob Goodenow for wasting an entire season with a battle that alienated fans and yielded few results.
  • 2003
    Age 22
    In 2003–04, Avery played 76 games for the Kings, scoring 9 goals to go along with 19 assists.
    More Details Hide Details He also led the NHL in penalty minutes with 261.
  • 2002
    Age 21
    Over the course of his hockey career, Avery was involved in a number of controversies and fined by the NHL on numerous occasions. The controversy started early in his career; Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said he unloaded Avery during the 2002–03 season partly because he didn't seem to have respect for the game.
    More Details Hide Details In November 2007, Howard Berger, a reporter for Toronto radio station FAN 590, stated that an unnamed Rangers player had accused Avery of commenting about Toronto Maple Leafs player Jason Blake's battle with leukemia, prior to a pre-game confrontation between Avery and Toronto's Darcy Tucker. Avery, who denied the allegation, received an NHL-maximum $2,500 fine, and Tucker received a $1,000 fine.
    Midway through the 2002–03 season, Avery was traded to the Los Angeles Kings.
    More Details Hide Details He finished the season with 15 points in 51 games.
  • 2001
    Age 20

    More Details Hide Details The Red Wings went on to win the Stanley Cup that season, but Avery did not play in the playoffs nor did he play the required 41 games to get his name engraved on the Cup. It was also here that he learned he was not allowed to talk to Mr Sakic.
