Cool? Sounds more like asinine to me. She's a skank.
2004-03-09 09:37:58 PM  
Sweet, whack those kneecaps!
2004-03-09 09:42:52 PM  
Okay, it will be cool if somebody knocks the shiat out of her.
2004-03-09 09:51:01 PM  
It's supposed to feel like when you're opening a new package of toilet paper and you push your thumb through the plastic down into the hollow of one of the rolls. Somehow, though, I doubt that it feels that way.

Did they sign her ass or her boobies?

/groupies rule
2004-03-09 11:52:54 PM  
Hey, that was 10 years ago . I feel old now.
2004-03-09 11:53:13 PM  
She'd be perfect for the Canucks.
2004-03-09 11:56:55 PM  
She might look better missing a couple of teeth but I doubt it.
2004-03-10 12:05:06 AM  
Great move by a team that needs an enforcer to play dirty and kneecap the other team's offence.
2004-03-10 12:31:58 AM  
Christ, is she still around?

Somebody call Todd Bertuzzi.
2004-03-10 01:35:04 AM  
I'd Hit it!
No seriously, I'm being realistic here people.. especially with those super hot scars and bruises she's gonna get.
2004-03-10 01:45:33 AM  
If she wanted to be a real hockey player, she'd have to drink less.
2004-03-10 01:47:42 AM  
Pick a sport.
2004-03-10 01:52:14 AM  
She'll make a token appearance on the ice, if any.
2004-03-10 01:52:33 AM  
It's really hard being drunk and awake at this time of night.
2004-03-10 01:53:27 AM  
Someone explain the "Cool" part of this to me.....
2004-03-10 01:54:35 AM  
somebody send me a video of the hip check when it happens.....
2004-03-10 01:57:25 AM  
Bertuzzi'd hit it.
2004-03-10 01:57:47 AM  
Brilliant. She should have made this career move long ago. Forget the the olympics, I think she may have finally found her true calling
2004-03-10 01:59:11 AM  
What's the name of the Indiana fake news site? This sounds like their kind of stuff.
2004-03-10 02:01:36 AM  
By the way, chicks who play hockey are hot. Especially when they are lesbians.

/wonders if having a crush on lesbian hockey players is so wrong?
2004-03-10 02:09:11 AM  
Fans will be cheering "Keep it on!"

NSFW link as to why!
2004-03-10 02:13:31 AM  
I think she'll be a roaring sucess... She's a lead-pipe cinch!

Sorry, that just had to be said...
2004-03-10 02:13:57 AM  
Too bad for Indianapolis hockey that Nelson Skalbania isn't around to help out.

His "celebrity signing" back in 1978 made a whole lot more sense.
2004-03-10 02:14:20 AM  
The event is part of the team's "Are You Tough Enough" promotion this season where fans are guaranteed to see some sort of a fight. If a fight does not break out, all fans will receive a free ticket to the team's last regular season game on Sunday, team officials said.

this is hilarious right next to the survey about bertuzzi
2004-03-10 02:14:35 AM  
The only cool thing here is the ice itself.

Dan Patrick's going to have her on the air tommorow, much to his dismay (ESPN Radio, 12-2 PM Eastern)
2004-03-10 02:15:15 AM  
Oh. This is the same hockey team that suited up Bol.

2004-03-10 02:18:42 AM  
Hockey is really getting smeared on Fark today. First Bertuzzi goes apeshiat on an Av, then the little -me-go-pee-pee-on-your-head routine, and now Tanya "I knee-d the money" Harding...Wow.

Hopefully this will be it for hockey until the Canucks when the cup, then Bertuzzi tugs on Bettman's suit and punches his head off.
2004-03-10 02:23:19 AM  
2004-03-10 02:24:07 AM  
Maybe she's just warming up for that Hockey Gladiators contest that they are going to have later this year.
2004-03-10 02:36:27 AM  
Leave Tonya Harding alone. The only crime that she commited is to marrying that scumbag of an ex-husband. Also if she won at least a bronze, her punishment would of been light.

What was the punishment? I believe $150K, $50K to special olympics, and 500 (?) hours of community service. Also the commitee kicked her out from ever participating, and to add salt to the wounds, the committe will ban anyone, who got caught skating with Tonya in any ice skating event. That's BS. Well it looks like the hockey team won't be participating in the olympics.

She did not do the bashing. It was a dumbass thug, that her ex-husband hired to do the deed.

I had more to add, but forgot.
2004-03-10 02:38:04 AM  
"Ice" hockey. Nice. Did an American write that headline?
2004-03-10 02:38:29 AM  
The jokes on them. I've seen her fight.
2004-03-10 02:44:15 AM  
So if Bertuzzi gets actual charges filed against him, then I guess together with Marty McSorley and Tanya Harding that makes a hat trick for the number of athletes that have actually committed the crime while on the actual ice..
2004-03-10 02:46:19 AM  
What a shock, the Indianapolis Ice are doing a random stunt signing, I know they had Montue (sp?) Bol a while back, and I'm almost positive there have been others.
2004-03-10 03:00:16 AM  
Who's Tanya Harding?
2004-03-10 03:03:29 AM  
I always thought she had a super tight body, u know those skaterchicks are toned and stuff. By the way her so called "sex tape" was BORING no wonder she left that guy.
2004-03-10 03:17:48 AM  
xsith Tonya Harding doesn't actually have a typical skaters body... I used to skate competitively when I was younger, and most of us had legs half the size of hers. Its not that having that amount of muscle is bad, but it makes it a bit harder to be graceful... And it slows you down. I for one couldn't believe that someone like her could make it that far.
2004-03-10 03:25:09 AM  
Looks like they hired her as a goon - they have a "fight guarantee" or they get a free ticket to the last game. Stupid.

Hope someone takes her kneecaps off...
2004-03-10 03:35:21 AM  
why did she have to shoot that guy?
2004-03-10 04:18:49 AM  
There isn't more than corn in Indiana.

Nothing like having a low minors hockey team in your city. That would be suitable for a town with <150,000 people, but a city the size of Indianapolis should at least have a conduit team (a team in the ECHL or AHL - leagues where players are promoted on their way to the NHL). Except for Fort Wayne, that shows you how much people regard hockey in this boring state.

And now they have Tonya Harding. Indiana, this is what you deserve for your hockey naivity!

I remember sitting in my dorm rec area at Ball State with a rare hockey game on (1992 winter olympics?), fellow Hoosiers baffled at what was transpiring on the screen. These basketball-only fans starting making fun of the game, mock-chanting "offense! offense!" then "defense! defense!" as they would at a b-ball game, changing one or the other every three seconds when the puck was turned over in the neutral zone.

/proud Indiana emmigrant
/wishes Kalamazoo Wings were in the ECHL instead of the 'your career is dead' UHL
2004-03-10 04:32:37 AM  
Freschel, I'm inclined to agree. Getting to the level she reached is no small feat and it's doubtful the one who knew how much effort it took would want to risk pissing it all away on a stupid scheme.
2004-03-10 05:07:55 AM  
For those not knowing lonocurse's reference at 02:13:57 AM,

JohnGaltDiscGolfer: I went to Ball State too, and as an interesting bit of trivia I worked as an intern architect at the firm that did the Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum expansion project that just finished up recently. I actually walked around on the ice one day as we checked the contractor's work on the dasher boards.
2004-03-10 05:35:15 AM  
"Ice" hockey. Nice. Did an American write that headline?

With qualification for the Olympics field hockey event currently occurring and in the news it may actually deserve the clarification (even though I will certainly not bother to watch it)
2004-03-10 05:41:10 AM  
Where's the "high sticking" joke??
2004-03-10 05:49:58 AM  
or maybe the headline said "Ice" in it because thats the friggin team's name?

i know, i know... biatching about the headlines is a fark pastime, but... ya could at least read the article first.
2004-03-10 06:40:14 AM  
shandro & martissimo:
The headline is referring to the name of the team, not the type of hockey. Indy's hockey team is the Indianapolis Ice.
2004-03-10 06:41:59 AM  
Sorry heap, didn't see your post; I'm a knob.
