You could say it was a good day for Nyjer Morgan. For one, the Brewers announced that the outfielder will be bobble-ized in 2012, something that appears to have been in the works for awhile. Then there was what everyone was talking about today — Morgan’s return to the ice, as he practiced with the San Jose Sharks.
The video, courtesy the NHL Network:
Yes, the Sharks let him score on a breakaway.
No, there were no Happy Gilmore take-the-skate-off-and-try-to-stab-someone moments.
No, he didn’t get hurt.
In the end, it was a harmless little publicity stunt that gets people talking about the Brewers in the offseason. Nothing wrong with that.
