Eddie was arrested in Bowling Green Ohio a couple of weeks ago for partying WAY too hard. Reports of him ripping the shower curtain out of the wall appear to be true if that’s what The Eagle is laying on at the start of the video.
Eddie can’t stop won’t stop drinking and he’s the one who has to decide if this works for him. So until them, we’ll just call Ed a ‘Drinking Enthusiast.’
What get’s me about this video is how many times Eddie apologizes and says he ‘doesn’t want to cause trouble.’ Most people who get arrested for public drunkenness tend to keep firing but Ed seems to either be mitigating his damages or he’s having a moment of clarity.
He has another one here when he admits he was probably ‘out of control’. Good call, Eddie.
The down side? Eddie is the proud owner of BelfourSpirits.com, makers of fine Whiskey. He sold all of his hockey memorabilia several years ago to start Belfour Spirits and as the owner-operator seems to be taking his job very, very seriously. The Upside? Ed was in Bowling green promoting his hooch which led to the altercation and as the owner of his own whiskey distillery, there’s little to no chance he gets fired.
I met Eddie 15 years ago. He had zero time for me and all kinds of time for my son. Eddie gave him a puck, took pictures and toured him through the dressing room while he pretended I didn’t exist and I liked that about him. Maybe he doesn’t care as much as it looks like it doesn’t in real life and that’s his superpower.
If that’s the case, this video shouldn’t bother Eddie in the least.
