Fashion and Hockey

As some of you may know, Ryan Miller started his own charity for kids with cancer. It is called the Steadfast Foundation, and he has had much sucess with it so far. Miller has had always had a softside for disabled kids, and after his cousin was diagnosed with cancer, "It really hit home" according to his father, Dean Miller.


Now, you are probably wondering what the heck hockey has to do with fashion, so I'll attempt in explaining it. Ryan Miller decided to host a "Catwalk for Charity," where the Sabres themselves would be modeling clothes. I really wanted to go, but I figured it was not worth the minimum $200 to get in. As the players strutted their stuff to songs such as "Fergalicious" and "Sexy Back" fans screamed as their favorites appeared. You know hockey is becoming popular with the women of the world when they decide the hold a fashion show.Click this to see the hilarious video of the Fashion Show!

Millsey also visits kids at the hospital and even did when he attended the All-Star game. I know I shouldn't wish for cancer, but meeting Ryan Miller would brighten my day, no matter the circumstances.

Before the fashion show there was also an auction in which he raised over 100 thousand dollars. Which nearly half of ($50,000) was for a signed and worn helmet of Ryan Miller's bought by Billy Fucillo who owns Fucillo Chevrolet, a local car shop.

So that was just a quick 'Congratulations!' for Ryan Miller on his sucess with his foundation and the joy he is bringing to many young one's life with cancer.

Dang, I can't get the video to play on my Mac!

It is great to see players doing this kind of work and in a creative way, not just donating money...

MARTY!!!

Adorable video, not enough footage of the boys strutting their stuff if you ask me. I love how Campbell admitted to practicing. I mean who wouldn't right?

Although the next person who uses a phrase involving "sexyback" shall feel my wrath.

They'd been asked previously about a Timberlake concert and who was the least likely to bring sexy back, so maybe it's related?

Video of that here.

It is an obnoxious phrase though.

Billy Fucillo is the most annoy person on the planet. Miller better be careful. Him buying the helmet might throw Miller off his game.
