Michael Del Zotto has been texting Lisa Ann, whom you may know as Justin Brent's girlfriend from an earlier update. Del Zotto has apparently been bothering her for 2 years and asking her to help him find a girl to go out with. This strikes me as somewhat strange for a couple reasons.
This is what it looks like to me: the kid asks a porn star for a dating hookup thinking that she herself might jump at the chance to date him (maybe he knows she likes them young). Whether or not Lisa Ann would date him (she likely would not considering how annoying she's said he has been) he also has the somewhat childish notion that it would be cool to date adult film actors. Okay, Mikey, if that's the road you want to go down, be my guest. I doubt it would be a pathway the hockey player could stick to for very long. Anyway, Lisa Ann reported that Del Zotto blocked her from Twitter. The nerve of this guy! He pesters her for years and then blocks her on Twitter like he's above her. He was the guy asking her! It would be awesome if Justin Brent encouraged Lisa Ann to tweet about all of this.
Lisa Ann went on to explain exactly how this all went down. About two years ago Del Zotto had his agent tap Lisa on the shoulder to ask her out for him. By the way, this is a pure high school move. It's the modern day equivalent of passing notes and having your friends call your crush on the phone, except with Z-Listers. Anyway, Lisa Ann goes out with him, they apparently don't form much of a connection, and then a week later he starts texting her asking if she would hook him up with girls on the road. Lisa Ann isn't yet a madame, Mikey, and that's pretty gross that you'd want other people to do all the legwork for you. First the agent, then Lisa? Come on, Mikey, you're a big boy. Maybe he should focus that energy where it belongs-- the ice.
We received an email from Steve who wrote the perfect description for the pair, saying: Don't know what the hockey term would be but seems like Ed Snider out kicked his coverage..." We couldn't agree more Steve.
Glad to see Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider could find some time in his busy schedule solving the NHL lockout to propose to his girlfriend of 8-months Lin Spivak. Not like the NHL is on the brink of collapsing or anything here. Ed you take all the time you want with this wedding and get back to your NHL duties whenever you're ready, no rush.
I will give the old man credit for one thing, his proposal was real solid. I mean I guess if you have some extra cash laying around from not paying your NHL players you can make a few things happen. At dinner Ed got up from the table and excused himself to go to the bathroom, probably for the 8th time during the dinner so I'm sure Lin didn't think anything of it. When Ed walked away the magic started. A group of singers approached Lin and started to serenade her with Bruno Mars' "Marry You". I'm still trying to figure out how Ed picked that song. I'm 31 and I'd like to think I know my pop music but I had no clue Bruno sang this song. So how did the 79 year old Ed Snider know the song? Think he had his staff at the Flyers find the perfect song for the occasion? I mean hell ain't like they are doing anything right now, mind as well put them to work if he is paying them right? Also do you think he looked into hiring Bruno Mars to sing the song himself and thought you know, i spent enough on the ring, this might be a little too pricey for me.
So back to the proposal, when the song was done Ed returned to the table and dropped to one knee. Ed's had a lot of practice at this whole proposal thing seeing that this will be his 4th marriage. Still for a 79 year old man I got to hand it to him, Lin is looking pretty good for 45. The good news is if the happy couple is looking for a venue for the wedding I'm sure the Wells Fargo Center has a few open dates.
This is a post we should have had up months ago and for once it has nothing to do with his wife.
Yes Zjenia (also reported as Yevgeniya) Brygalov fits the part of every European hockey wife ever, as another blond bombshell and someone that should be posted on this site. Every once in a while, however, we need to talk about the athlete. And honestly, we wouldn't be doing you the readers justice if we didn't talk about how much of a space cadet Ilya can be from time to time. Ilya was by far the star of she show on HBO's 24/7 this year. After being give a bottle of booze from Russia with a Tiger on the cover Ilya dropped this classic,
"This is tiger and less than probably 500 species left on Earth. China law. If you kill tiger like this, death penalty. Yeah, if you kill the tiger and they find you, you're dead. That's it."
Now that is someone we need to get to hang out with Mike Tyson! Some may argue a language barrier caused some confusion with the previous sentence, but it sure sounded like he had a firm grasp on what he was saying. In all seriousness there is not a lot of dirt on the couple. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and assume they met in Russia. They do still live in Russia in the offseason with their daughter Valery and son Vladislav.
