Default Re: Biggest Sports Tool You've Come Across

Eric Lindros

When the Oshawa Generals won the Memorial Cup (the Canadian Junior Hockey Championship) in 1990, he didn't bother to show up for the championship parade and ralley. At that time, Lindros was hyped to be next big thing the NHL (we know how that story turned out, ask anybody that follows the Philthydelphia Fylers) Anyways, some clown PR guy from the team joked that he couldn't be here and had something school related. This was like 6 PM. This was the biggest BS I ever heard, considering the entire team minus the Grieve brothers were there. Lindros stiffed the entire fans that came to get his autograph, considering the team gave away posters (with each individual player on it) at the ralley. I wanted his dam autograph on the poster as I managed to get everybody elses from the team. To this day, I can't stand him for this...even though he ended up coming to the Toronto Maple Leafs. I still have the poster minus his autograpgh below his picture.
