Hollweg’s All Wet

Swiss cheese is a rip-off-- it's is the only cheese you can bite and miss

From Dick Weiss’ column in this past Sunday’s New York Daily News:

The Rangers were hoping that rookie Ryan Hollweg would turn out to be a real whiz, but this probably wasn't what they had in mind.

The Score has learned that Hollweg showed up at The Stephen Talkhouse on Long Island over Memorial Day weekend and turned the club's bar area into his own private urinal, according to an unlucky fan.

"I went up to him and started talking to him about the Rangers," says a 25-year-old female fan, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "Then I noticed something dripping on my feet and I thought he was spilling his drink. But then I realized he was urinating.

"Most beers aren't that warm."

She added that Hollweg had been drinking, but up to that point had been a perfect gentleman and was "speaking coherently."

The alleged game misconduct took place on Saturday night of the holiday weekend and sent the Blueshirt diehard scurrying for cover - and in search of a bar employee.

Nick Kraus, a promoter at the club, says that the woman complained to him about the incident, but that when he went looking for Hollweg, the alleged pee-brain had left the premises.

"I've heard of things like that at other places, but not here," Kraus said, adding that he had seen Hollweg in the club earlier in the evening and that "eight or nine" club revelers had pointed out the Ranger to him.

Kraus said the fan in question is a regular at the club, and that other Rangers - most notably Mark Messier about three years ago - occasionally frequent the establishment.

Hollweg, through a Rangers spokesperson, claims the story is a prime example of yellow journalism. The Ranger rookie says he was at the Talkhouse with his girlfriend and a group of friends, but did not have a conversation with anyone outside of his group.

The fan says she wishes no ill will on Hollweg and will continue to root for her team.

"I love the Rangers," she said. "I just thought it was disgusting. It's not something you expect someone to do."

I guess this means that Ty Conklin wasn’t the only player from this year’s Wolf Pack roster to piss all over himself recently.

In regards to Hollweg -- I'm less than shocked. The man is a prick, no two ways about it (cough, LOSER, cough, cough) -- but the fact that the woman still referred to him as "gentlemanly" I suppose re-affirms his personal pompous belief that he is infact god's gift to planet earth... Weird how that sort of thing works out sometimes...

Personally, I like to think FedFed is God's gift, but what do I know?

One thing this story proves is that Hollweg has bad aim. He pee'd on a Rangers fan, while at a bar on Long Island. He should've found an Islanders fan to pee on instead.

this is total bullshit. i know him very well and he holds his liquor better than anyone on earth. do you really think he wouldn't just split to the bathroom if he had to pee rather than talk to some fat chick he doesn't even know and was only humoring in the first place? think what you want about him but if you don't know him off the ice you need to shut it...this girl who met him and was blown off after 20 seconds included, if she was a fan of his would she post this? she was all up in his junk and he blew her off and she's bitter, anyone objective will see this. he may play a little dirty but he has more class than you clearly care to know about off the ice. quit being so hateful, seriously. who he is on the ice and off are two different people.

hurricane eh. that would mean his girl friend katie left that bitchy comment. if you knew anything about who he is on and off the ice then you would know he is a prick as CC2000 put it. he cheats on you left and right. every chance he gets. you should probably get tested if you catch where im going with that.
