Afternoon Nonsense: Jesus Christ, Juan Castillo Head-Butted Keenan Clayton, Ed Snider to US Hockey Hall of Fame

You think Juan Castillo is fired up to have an all-world defense?

Today at practice, he head-butted Keenan Clayton… without a helmet: [Philly.com]

Now keep in mind, Clayton had a helmet on. The kind of helmet that is meant to protect players from concussions and head injuries. But also the kind of helmet that has been known to cause concussions and head injuries.

Castillo? No helmet for him.

Later, Casey Matthews laughed about the incident and said Castillo caught the rest of the linebackers off-guard. During his post-practice press conference, Castillo even had a little cut on his forehead. According to Matthews, the head-butt is what caused it.

 

Here’s a screen grab from the presser. I guess it takes Juan to know Juan. I… I’m sorry.

Other news: Ed Snider makes US hockey’s Hall of Fame. We’re not going to wax poetic about what he’s done for hockey and this city (you already know that)… but it’d be nice if the recent dismantling of the team resulted in a Stanley Cup. I’m not convinced it will.

Versus will become NBC Sports Network on January 2nd, the day of the yet unannounced Winter Classic.

  1. Just as I suspected, Castillo is obviously dumb as a box of rocks. Good lord why did you steal Jim Johnson away from us? Let me guess, football leagues are going strong up there and Jim J is running Godly league now?

  2. i actually love this from Castillo, seems like a player’s coach, if he goes that far out of his way (dain bramage?) to fire up his players then i have faith in his crazy ass. Go Birds

  3. My high school JV football coach did the exact same thing on several occasions. The only difference was he had a cut on his forehead instead of his nose.

    Damn, Moronic Pus Head, you’re more full of yourself than Laddie Boy. Any more, and that big head of yours is gonna pop. “lol”
    And Boy(yle), somebody forgot to send the memo Phil Liggett, Bobke Roll, Paul Sherwen, and that Liam Mc(NHL) guy, be cause they were all using “Versus” and “NBC Sports” interchangeably during the 2011 TDF.
