Ask FS! 3/9/07

Welcome back loyal readers! It's time once again for the only online column that understands the meaning of the word "comedy," it's "Ask FS!" Today's question comes from Mike in San Diego. Mike asks
If Chris Simon was a baseball hitter, what kind would he be?
Thanks for the question Mike! For those of you living under a rock, the NHL is back in the news for another dirty play, this time by Chris Simon of the New York Islanders. While certainly a physical presence throughout his career, the one time 29-goal scorer never really known for playing especially dirty.

Simon made a two handed slash to the face of Ryan Hollweg of the New York Rangers. Most people will agree that Hollweg had something coming to him, but no one ever deserves this.

For a video of the slash, go here.

While you're at it, see Simon fight Donald Brashear back when Simon played for the Nordiques.

And here is Chris Simon pumping gas.

So after seeing those videos, I'd say Chris Simon is best like Pete Rose. He's got a decent swing, a lot of heart, and a full tank of gas. But he'll probably be best known for doing something stupid.

If you've got a question that you'd like to see answered in a future edition of "Ask FS!," drop me a line in the comments section, or send me an email in the link provided below. Until next time, Let's Go Caps!
