Penguins // Steel City
sid vs tanger
Three days after winning the Cup, Fleury showed a side that nearly caused one of his dearest Pittsburgh friends to do a spit-take. Michael Hornick, a Caldwell Banker agent, sold Fleury his Moon Township home and attends to it when Fleury and LaRosee return to Sorel during the offseason.
"I went over to collect the keys; we’re talking about a few things as ‘Vero’ says she is taking their dog, Lilly, out," Hornick said. "Next thing I know, Vero is running back into the house, screaming something in French, and she runs back outside after grabbing something from the kitchen drawer. Fleury and (Penguins defenseman Kris) Letang leap off the couch, and all I see are shorts and flip-flips in front of me. I thought there was an emergency."
Hornick stepped outside to the sight of Fleury and Letang trailing LaRosee — the three of them chasing an ice cream truck.
"I caught up with him and said, ‘Marc, you make a lot of money; you can probably buy some ice cream and keep it in the house.’ He said, ‘Yeah, you’re right, but this is more fun.’ Then, he smiled, turned around and started buying ice cream for all the neighbors."
