April 25: A man (in white) from Kazakhstan is escorted by police as he leaves Fiumicino airport, northeast Rome. The man, using a knife, tried to hijack an Alitalia flight from Paris to Rome on Sunday night, demanding it be flown to Libya, but was quickly overpowered and arrested when the plane landed, officials and witnesses said."
Notice the center-parted coif and sandy-blonde hair? This Kazakhstani madman is OBVIOUSLY our very own Nik Antropov who was visiting Paris as part of the World Championships festivities.
The only reasonable conclusion is that Antro, desperate for some sense of stability, was attempting to divert the plane to Libya to negotiate with Colonel Quadaffi to purchase the Atlanta Thrashers, rename the team the Atlanta Jihaddists, and redesign the jerseys to include not a logo, but a vest of dynamite on the chest.
How would you like to see THAT crashing your crease, Cam Ward?
By the way, I am going to cease using bit.ly as all .ly URL's are actually the property of the Libyan government.
