While everything about last night's Operation Hat Trick charity game was perfect, one strange site was seeing Vinny from the "Jersey Shore" as Team Richards head coach.
Assuming the reason he participated was because of his obvious connection to New Jersey. He's also from Staten Island which was one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy…

…despite Vinny's connections to the tragedy, I still don't think he belonged at the event. His being there seemed like more of a publicity stunt you'd see from the NBA, not our beloved NHL where things are much more humbled.
