Brett Hull, one of the nation's most celebrated cheaters, is a good-natured guy. Sure, he cheated and kinda stole the Stanley Cup from us but he's got a good sense of humor about it.
Hull recently joined Twitter. And, of course, Buffalo fans quickly found him and started working him over for his cheating ways. Hull took it well, though. Indeed, he took it so well he went out and bought a shirt from local t-shirt vendor BornInBuffalo
which proclaims 'BRETT HULL IS A CHEATER.' Hull, eager to poke Buffalo fans, is wearing this shirt in his new Twitter profile picture while he holds a miniature Stanley Cup.
You gotta give it to the guy - that's pretty funny.
Keep in mind, Brett Hull has 741 career goals which is tied for 3rd all-time. He scored 86 goals in a single season, a record only eclipsed by Wayne Gretzky. He won the Lady Byng Trophy, the Hart Trophy and is tied with Gretzky for the most game winning goals (24) in playoff games. There's a statue of Brett Hull outside Scottrade Center, home of the St. Louis Blues.
But despite that, when you Google Brett Hull, here is what Google recommends:
Give Hull credit for running towards the cheating smack. And the Twitter photo is funny. But it still wasn't a goal.
