So you remember earlier this week when Ilya Bryzgalov told a Russian reporter that the reason why he was missing out on the Channel One Cup, an international tournament, was because he was at Mission Control, wearing a space suit? Well… it turns out he may have been telling the truth. 

No, not some figurative truth about being a space cadet. 


Bryz may have literally been wearing a space suit at Mission Control.

Our favorite nut was given tour of the Cosmonaut Training Center in Mother Russia, where he met with famous cosmonaut Valery Tokarev and, yes, put on a space suit. There is absolutely amazing video after the jump. But here’s a brief synopsis via [translated] 

In the program "Football 24" showed how Bryzgalov met with a hero of Russia, cosmonaut Valery Tokarev and asked him a few questions. "I'm interested in space and I did learn a little bit, but more by the stars – as infancy universe, how it all happened," – admitted goalkeeper. The astronaut said all that one sees in space, except for the planet Earth – "cold, lifeless and dead in our understanding." "There's a man can not live," – said Tokarev.

The program also showed how Bryzgalov dons the suit. "I like Darth Vader is from 'Star Wars'," – said the goalkeeper, when dressed in the clothes of the astronaut.


Does anyone else feel like Bryz is Buddy The Elf? He has childlike enthusiasm about weird things, seemingly comes from another planet, and though he may frustrate us, you can’t help wanting to just give him a big hug sometimes?

  1. Just watched that whole video and pretended like I knew what they were saying the whole time. What a nutty man.

  2. We should trade Bryz to the Russian Space Hockey team. Maybe he can actually stop a fuckin puck if there’s no gravity. And then we can get a real goalie here and get some fuckin jam! Lets get some fucking jam!!!! Fucking stawberry jam! Grape Jam! Peach Jam! Pearl Jam!!!!!! Fucking Marmalade!!!!!!

  3. The girl at the top of the top of the “Girls of Philly” ad has a herpes sore on her lip.
    They should rename it “Girls of Kensington Ave.”

  4. The racist Kyle Scott mentions the El shooting in West Philly twice on this site but the mass shooting in Connecticut committed by a privileged sheltered spoiled rich white kid gets absolutely no mention by the undercover racist Kyle Scott believes that Demonic White People can do no wrong I’M curious Kyle Scott when presenting articles on black athletes do you submit them while wearing a white sheet like your ancestors you racist pale devil.

  5. keisha, you are an idiot! plain and simple. i went back and read the article he posted on the shooting of the bulls fans and there is nothing he wrote that is remotely racist. yes, there were posts in the comments section that were racist, but kyle said nothing that could be considered racist or offensive. furthermore, i am presuming he has not devoted a piece to the sandy hook incident nor will he create a piece to it because it is a non-sports related event! this is a sports blog, which means he posts things only related to sports. in ending, i am probably one of the many that request that you avoid making further posts and go pound sand instead!

  6. Too bad the dirty jigs didn’t just shoot more of their own like they usually do. You can take the monkey out of he jungle but you can’t take the jungle out of the monkey.

  7. Wow….from Bryz’s Space Oddity to lesbians and african americans.
    face it all you Dodge Ram knuckle draggers, Russia went into space 1st…..Sputnik, Russian Space Station and now Major Bryz.
    The Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza ? 20 year old Autistic kid who graduated high school three years early. He was on SSRI drugs. Don’t blame the NRA, blame the big Pharmaceutical companies that push these deadly meds on the parents for the kids.

  8. Another place where there is a stone curse, that is Scottish stone. But few people know it. The ancient Scottish warriors were fall in the death because of the curse.

  9. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours today, but I
    by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely worth enough for
    me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made just right
    content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more helpful than
    ever before.
