Larry "P.T." Linde is at it again: the Indianapolis Ice have signed Tonya Harding.
It's such a good publicity stunt that people are already bitching about it. Geez you guys... a "disgrace" to what exactly? The dignity of bush league hockey, where only the very best, most well-mannered players get to wear the sweater?
More to the point, she's gonna take about as many shifts as Manute Bol did. If she does get into "some sort of fight," it will be about as heat-of-the-moment as your average Hanson Brothers pre-game promotional appearance. If the Ice were to really sign her, there'd have to be an empty roster spot... and it would presumably be for a lot less than her standard appearance fee, so as not to violate the cap.
