Forgiving yourself for embarrassing drunken behavior can be tough. Being drunk is one of the most common reasons behind people embarrassing themselves or being stupid. In some instances, those stories are laughable and can be shaken off or simply shared in jest. In other situations, these are the ghost and horror stories of our drinking days: embarrassing drunken nights never to be admitted or acknowledged in any way because the shame and embarrassment was too great. Embarrassing drunken stories that fueled me to drink more.
Don't get me wrong, drinking can be very helpful. You won't catch me on a first date without an overflowing wine glass, which has upsides and downsides: The wine doesn't necessarily stop me from mentioning that I have questions about the girl I saw in all of his Facebook pictures I found online before going on our date, but it makes me care less that I've said it. When I get drunk I go one of two ways: I either do a lot of weird, squinty smiles and keep saying "I'm drunk" to anyone who has not asked me, or I get very quiet and strange, and move so slowly that people think I'm fresh from intense dental surgery. Once I get home, I can be found lying on my floor, crying to an Adele song. I'm quite happy with my drunken mannerisms. Someone coming away from meeting me drunk and thinking that I'm a little weird is much preferred over people talking about the way my boobs looked when I flashed them all night thankfully, I don't do that.
This happened about two years ago. I was a freshman girl in college, and I already met a big group of friends. We all had only known each other a few months, as we were in our second semester.
After former NHL player and now former ESPN analyst Matthew Barnaby was arrested early in December for driving a Porsche with three tires while intoxicated, I thought it would be fitting to write an article featuring some of the most embarrassing arrests of past and present NHLers. Like any other organization that boasts thousands of people with a wide range of personalities, the National Hockey League has had its fair share of players break the law since its founding. Some arrests have been major, many have been minor, but this list is not based on the weight of the arrest, it is based on the sheer embarrassment factor of the arrest. Shane Churla , retired NHL tough guy, was arrested on April 20 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, after a fit of road rage due to a man not letting him pass on the shoulder. The man claims that after he had stopped to avoid an object on the road, Churla pulled up beside him and threw coffee at his vehicle.
