Watching a replay of Real Time with Bill Maher on Saturday, the last thing I expected to see was Chris Neil appearing during 'New Rules' - the segment used to wrap up each show.
Neil shows up at around the 0:56 second mark of the video below:
As insulting as it is that HBO used the incredibly rare 'Prust actually landed a punch on Neil' image, I suppose if there's some solace, it's that they didn't use a photo of Neil's patented dumb penalty face.
I think WIllie O'Ree and all the other African American players who came after him including current NHL'ers PK Suban, Jarome Iginla, Joel Ward, Wayne Simmonds, oh hell the list is too long to type should be ticked off at Maher for the punchline joke in that bit. There are no black guys in hockey is a weak joke and you'd expect better of Maher.
