Too funny...

NEW YORK -- All-star defenseman Chris Chelios, a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Detroit Red Wings, will train with the U.S. bobsled federation next week in a bid to compete for Greece at 2006 Turin Olympics.

With the NHL having locked out players in a bitter labor dispute that is threatening to wipe out the entire season, Chelios will spend next Wednesday in Lake Placid training with members of the U.S. bobsled team, the federation said on Friday.

"I am looking forward to getting the experience of learning the ropes of bobsledding," said Chelios, a veteran of 21 NHL seasons, in a statement. "I hope this is the first stepping stone on my way to making it to the next Olympic Games."

The captain of the U.S. team at last month's World Cup of Hockey and a three-time Olympian, Chelios, 42, recently said he wanted to compete in a fourth Olympics but this time on the Greek bobsled team.

After learning of Chelios's interest in the sport, the U.S. bobsled federation invited him to join them as they train for the upcoming World Cup season.

Well he's a great athlete. Not really sure what goes into being a good bobsledder. I'm sure Rico will come along and enlighten us... :-D

Ahem...what about the cup he won with the Habs in 1986?

When he was with the Habs he was the world's best defenseman. When he went to Chicago he suddenly became the world's biggest jerk and dirty player - funny how that happens eh?

The Russian team better watch out for cross-checks and slashing.
