GODS OF ICE HOCKEY: Jiri Tlusty of the Carolina Hurricanes, National Hockey League

This Czech professional ice hockey player's life tremendously quieted down since he transferred from the Toronto Maple Leafs. His first misadventure in Canada: he sent his self-photographed naked pictures to a Canadian woman he met through his Facebook account. Then he was photographed tounge-kissing a man, with ensuing question marks on his sexuality. Part of the learning curve one free-spirited young European has to go through upon being transplanted to the unpredictable popular and moral environment of North America. But he learned his lessons well- he was surprisingly invisible lately that I almost thought he went home already to his homeland.
