Rick DiPietro is now apparently saying he was "100 percent facetious" when he said he considered killing himself over his string of bad luck over the last few years.
For a moment, I felt extremely badly for him.
Now he looks like a complete and utter asshole for this — and for allowing a journalist at News 12 Long Island to believe he was serious about contemplating suicide.
Suicide is not anything to joke about — ever. And if, indeed, he was just kidding about wanting to off himself, he should be ashamed.
The Islanders are supposed to release a statement shortly on the comments. I cannot wait to hear how they spin this crap.
Yet another embarrassing moment in the saga that is Rick DiPietro.
