I’m kind of hesitant to post this because the last time (I think?) I wrote about Danny Briere’s love life – when Danny was allegedly texting pictures of his Briere to Gina Lynn, according to her ex-husband, Travis Knight, who later told me he was lying – I immediately received a phone call from a Flyers spokesman saying that Briere denied ever doing such a thing. But now, the league is locked out and Briere’s in Germany, so if he wants to deny this one he’s going to have to call me himself.
Reader Sean unearthed this one. He sent me what has to be one of the weirdest emails I’ve ever received, and that puts him in truly rarified air:
I figured I would pass this on, do with it what you will. I'm sure nobody else came across this, the only reason I found it is because I skateboard. To be fair the dude who it happened to isn't a pro yet, but it is his job and he does make money. I guess the best way to describe him is a farmhand, making his way to the show (skateboarding has different definitions of what makes you "pro") . Anyway both guys are from our area, the other guy is one of the best skateboarders in the world.
Anyway, maybe you could save it for a rainy day with no hockey.
Yeah, let’s save it for… now!
In the video after the jump, filmed in May, you can see skateboarders Chris Cole and Kyle Frederick discussing a bunch of complete nonsense, including but not limited to the size of their penises, bobcats… and the time Danny Briere was texting (and perhaps fucking) Frederick’s girlfriend.
Frederick: [left the “likes” in there, for effect]
No, like I was actually dating her. We dated for a couple months. We ended up going out to dinner and she’s like texting, like, a dude. I was kinda weirded out by that, I guess, and she’s like, “Oh yeah, my friend Danny.” I’m like, “Oh OK, that’s cool, I guess.” Like, I have friends.
I guess I was hanging out with a bunch of friends and, like, mentioned her name, and someone was like, “Hey, is that that chick who banged the whole Flyers team?” And I’m like, “What do you mean?” He goes, “Apparently that’s the word on the street.” I was like, like, kinda thrown off. Then I’m, like, thinking, and, like, we hung out again. That Danny turned out to be, like, Danny Briere. And I’m like, “Holy shit, this is true! This is happening.” She’s like, “Oh yeah, like, we met, like, out somewhere, like, in Philly.” I was like, “Holy shit! This is real! This is real!”
Nice job by Briere, who is divorced. Can't imagine why. Video after the jump.
