Embracing the Metro Within

New York Ranger hockey player Sean Avery started his 'internship' with fashion bible Vogue last week.

Why???

Why NOT???

He told Women's Wear Daily, the fashion industry's trade rag, "I wanted to immerse myself in fashion. I couldn't think of a better place to do it than Vogue."

He must have been inspired by ex-girlfriend Mary-Kate Olsen to explore his inner fashionista!

Avery may be getting paid minimum wage like all the other interns, but it's far from the ordinary experience.

According to reports, he may be appearing on the cover of the mag and is slated to attend the couture shows in Europe with Anna Wintour next month.

Wonder if he'll go back to hockey after the internship?

Wouldn't you take models, jet-setting, and clothes over the hockey puck?

We're jealous!

    Avery's a douchebag and very disrespectful as a hockey player. Here's hoping he finds his inner couture and stays there.

    Oh Perez…lovely interns at Vogue (such as myself) don't make minimum wage. We work for free! He's one of those Lauren Conrad type deals. Not really an intern!

    The majority of interns do NOT get paid at Vogue at all.
    They earn school credit. Only 1 or 2 are actually paid. I was an unpaid intern at Vogue once upon a time. You do bitch work…a "regular" intern would never go to the Couture shows. Working at vogue is like being in a comedy show, only all the actors think they've been cast in a drama.
    He is not getting the "real" experience.

    conde nast doesn't pay their interns! not even minimum wage.
    they "offer" a 12$ a day stipend, which they don't come through on.

    No puck - no models. that's why he doesn't give it up.

    This is sickening… using his "star" status to take away internship opportunities from college kids who actually WANT to be writers, work in publishing, etc. He should spend the off-season working on his game so the Rangers might actually win a Stanley Cup for the first time in 14 years.

    this guy is an ignorant brute…total asshole. I hope he leaves hockey for good.

  22. AVERY BLOWS. REALLY! says – reply to this


    22

    he paints his nails which says a lot. He is the most hated punk in hockey. He's lucky to have a job. He has about 3 years tops if the Rangers sign him and he doesn't get hurt AGAIN which he will.left. 5-6 if he goes to the minors and does his act there. He like working at vogue to steal dresses and desings fag. He's a little douchebag cocksucker. he needs to go back to LA where they ran him out. He would fit right in. He's a clown and embaressment to the league. The sooner he goes away the better. Asshole! The need to get rid of the instigator rule. Then he wouldn't pull the shit he does. He couldn't have played 20 years ago, he would have gotten his little ass beat every night, although he enjoys that. Go away Avery and ride off into obscurity.

    Vogue can keep him. Avery is a complete a-hole and does not deserve play in the NHL.

  26. Mel says – reply to this


    26

    He's probably sleeping with Wintour. She looks like a cougar. This moron Avery is racist, sexist, homophobic and recently made fun of another player with cancer. He's a loser!

  27. good says – reply to this


    27

    good i hate this fucker. leave the ice and never return. you are an embarrassment to the game. don't think i'd ever see wayne gretzky be a fashion intern on the off season. lame-o.

  28. Cinner says – reply to this


    28

    When he played with the Red Wings, he hung out with a bunch of other hockey players who lived in my building that I hung out with all the time and let me tell you….he is NOT Mr. Personality. He is obstinate and a one crass prick. Not a nice person at all. When people say hi to him, he says fuckoff you piece of shit, whether he knows the person or not. That's the kind of person he is.

    He's an embarrassment to the awesome sport of hockey. Who ever let him into the NHL ranks, anyway? They should be shot.

    He's a goon-ball. That's all.

  31. Chiley says – reply to this


    31

    He's the biggest flamer ever.

    Well he was alright in hockey, mind you, he's known to be a bitch on and off the ice.

    32

    LEt fashion have him! He's an ignorant prick on AND off the ice…he can't play hockey for shit and he's a racist,homophobic,hooker-slinging douche-bag!

    No real man who plays hockey would take jets and modeling bullshit over a chance for the cup, get tha fuck real.

  37. P-rick says – reply to this


    37

    He's a dirty goon and is probably the most hated hockey player (by other players and fans of the game) today.

    I hope his internship is successful to the point that he doesn't return to hockey since he's done nothing but tarnish the sport anyway.

  38. ugh says – reply to this


    38

    What an f-ing loser. The Rangers suck ass so he had to start moonlighting. I love how he actd all tough but start shaking when he gets in fights out on the ice. Stay at Vogue and leave the NHL be.

  39. hahahaha says – reply to this


    39

    This totally made my day. I'm a Pittsburgh Penguins fan and we're having a rough time in the finals..so seeing this made my day a bit brighter. Sean Avery is the biggest menace in hockey with NOTHING to back it up with. Jarkko Ruutu gave him a run for his money during our series when he stole Avery's stick.

    I guess poor little baby's lacerated spleen the Pens gave him is doing good enough for him to intern. Sadly his brush with death probably did little to humble his ridiculous attitude.

    Wouldn't you take models, jet-setting, and clothes over the hockey puck?

    no you fucking fag. avory must be a pretty big douche, cuz no real hockey player would ever become a "fashionista" lol i even hate that word!

    42

    If this is what it takes to get the most hated man in hockey out of the NHL I am all for it- fashion can have him because hockey fans certainly don't.
    It won't be long before the fashion world kicks him out on his butt because of his attitude

    Of course he'll go back to hockey idiot, …anybody would know that his hockey career is not forever…he's actually smart to educate himself so that he has a career when he retires from the NHL.

  46. hot says – reply to this


    46

    Aves is THE SEX!!! he's only a dick on the ice, NOT off. you guys are just JEALOUS. and he COULD TOTALLY KICK YOUR ASS….WITH NAIL POLISH ON!!!

    I don't know who this guy is, but his skin tone is BAD. He needs a good laser treatment to remove the freckling, followed by a good peel.

  48. wowoww says – reply to this


    48

    I think this is fucking rediculous. there are millions of young men and woman who work their whole lives, and countless hours in fashion schools dying for an opportunity like that and that spot he filled could have been filled by some one who DESERVES IT for hard work, not fame and some lame fucking excuse to be on covers and blog pages. People dream for an internship like this their whole lives while he is just going through a phase. RE TAR DED.

  49. Rangers says – reply to this


    49

    Sean Avery is 100 times more entertaining and good for the NHL than the ever feminine Sidney Crosby. I really hope he comes back to the Rangers next season. Let's go Rangers!

    LOVE AVERY..
    .JEALOUS FIRST OF ALL, WHO WOULDN'T WANT A INTERNSHIP AT VOGUE!!!!
    HOT, IN TOO FASHION, TAKES CARE OF HIMSELF AND PLAYS HOCKEY MY IDEAL MAN!!!

  51. Vogue start hiring non celeb interns again says – reply to this


    51

    Vogue stinks! Ever since they hired Lauren Conrad they have been hiring CList celeb idiots and socialites who to be Vogue interns on a whim. The girl from Degrassi and now this idiot. I guess average people with good grades who want to be real fashion journalists are no longer wanted. Even within the Vogue offices, they have become famewhores.

    52

    "It's not exactly news that Avery is a league-wide joke. Or, as Penguins winger Gary Roberts put it a few weeks ago, "an idiot."

    Roberts was speaking in the aftermath of Avery's ridiculous face-guarding act against New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur."

    You might have heard what Avery did at the Rangers' next practice, when he realized a television camera had caught him re-enacting his face-guarding routine. He made an obscene gesture to the camera.

    This is the kind of maladjusted mental midget you're dealing with.

    wtf? he's such a douche! what were vogue thinking?

  62. Chiley says – reply to this


    62

    Avery actually approached Vogue, and offered to work for free!, "because he loves fashion soo much." Imagine that, I told this to my buds a couple of months ago and they didn't believe me….

    awesome player, he really is interested in fashion, good for him.

    come back to the rangers!!

  64. Marcus says – reply to this

    Vogue interns never get paid. Though Sean Avery is…that's why it's ridiculous. He doesn't deserve it.

  65. Ann says – reply to this


    65

    To the Rangers fan above who claims Avery is 100 times more of a man…grow the fuck up. You're just pissed that Crosby is a real man. A man that is humble, nice, and cares about the sport. You're also jealous that he's one of the few good looking guys in the league. I'm so tired of people like you hating on him because he's basically perfect. Get over it.

    PS If Avery is so fucking awesome, why did the Rangers lose so bad? I'm sure you're also one of those people who claims the Pens wouldn't be where they are if not for all these injuries on the other teams. I laugh in your ugly guidoNewYork face.

  71. Amanda says – reply to this


    71

    I'm a die-hard Rangers fan but, fuck he annoys me. I'd hate the shit out of him if he wasn't on my team. There's a reason he's called "The Pest". He's already singed a couple year deal with the Rangers though, so expect this to only be an off-season deal. He might be known for his fashion sense, but it doesn't mean he actually has any. Not to mention, he isn't attractive. King Henrik, on the other hand, is both gorgeous and well dressed.

    Go Lundqvist!
