Well... as a hockey nut (and critic of Britney - not because of recent events, but instead her lack of actual singing talent), I really don't know what the heck I think about this.
If you read the entire article, it goes on to mention that if she accepts their invitation to come to Syracuse and watch hockey, the front staff of the arena will all shave their heads.
Kind offer to a sad young woman? Or funny publicity stunt?
(And while you're deciding, here's a nice mental picture: Britney's newly shaved head covered with a big toque as she makes her way through 10 foot high snowbanks to a hockey arena where a group of excited bald-headed fans try to get her autograph, while saying "we're so sorry you're going through this difficult time and here's a free beer and some popcorn from the treat counter".)
(Damn, these parentheses are addictive)
(If she actually goes to the snow-covered northern NY city to watch HOCKEY, I might have to reconsider my dislike of her. Especially if they can get her to sing "The Good Ol' Hockey Game". HA. I would totally make that my ringtone.)
