OT: Biggest pests in sports

Submitted by 30swk18 on May 4th, 2018 at 9:40 PM
Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins just licked Ryan Callahan after the whistle. Marchand is a repeat offender. Beyond wondering who the fuck would do that, it’s clearly an effective way to get under the other team’s skin. Personally, I think Marchand goes too far and is a dirty player, but it got me thinking who other professional pests in sports were or are and who we wouldn’t mind seeing on a Detroit team.

Was literally at the bar an hour ago telling me he’s Eskimo bros with Marchand. Side note: I’m Eskimo bros with Zucker from the Wild. #CoolStoryBro

Dude messes around for the regular season looking washed then starts dropping funky 11-9-17-5 stat lines while talking an ungodly amount of shit.

The choice of Vontez Burfict interested me.

For as flawed a person as he is and for all the shit he rightly gets in the NFL, if he were a Detroit Lion, I wonder how many people would put him in the category of "You like him only when he's on your team (or at least you're willing to overlook certain things)".

Another guy who liked to "say it with mucus" was former Piston "Bad Boy" Rick Mahorn. The story goes that during a game with the Celtics, he once stuck his finger up his nose and wiped the snot on Kevin McHale's leg.

I guess that's one way of setting a pick.

Esa Tikkanen... guy was a good player but a pain in the ass. Similar to Marchand, he went in for a kiss once to Dale Hunter who was a dirty player in his own right. Plus, due to his thick Finnish accent, no one could understand what he'd say out there.Image result for esa tikkanen dale hunter kiss

pest or two.

Late 80's Celtics had Danny Ainge. Lakers had Michael Cooper.

Bad Boys had Laimbeer.  Rodman could also drive teams nuts.

So many great Red Wings- Koccur, Holmstrom, Ciccarelli, Maltby, Lindsay.

Aaron Craft had a face I wanted to cave in.  Thad Matta as well.
