    I love stories like this and they have nothing to apologize for.

    I once got the restaurant bill from the place when the offensive linemen for the team I covered ate every Thursday night during the season.

    The owner of the restaurant, who gave me a copy of the bill, said his business went up incredibly as a result of, not necessarily the mention in the paper, but knowing where the players would be on any Thursday night.

    So the Bruins paid $15 each for Jager Bombs? That seems a bit high. :D

    The story made it sound like that was built in to the bill.

    I was at a restaurant/club over a decade ago and the quarterback from the local team was there with his entourage and several members of the NHL team were there.

    The restaurant comped the quarterback's meal, but he stiffed the waitress and didn't leave a tip on a $2500 tab. The NHL players found out about this and threw several hundred into a hat for the waitress. Not necessary, but a class move.

    Let's hope Albert Haynesworth is never a member of a Super Bowl-winning team.

    This was before Roethlisberger's time. :D

    They're a lot cheaper than Jaromir Jager Bombs, though. You can only get those from internet gambling websites, and they're so expensive, the IRS immediately files a lien, assuming you'll never pay your bill.

    I once asked our hockey writer why NHL players were so much easier to deal with than people in other sports.

    He said, "They're not American."
