IN GOOD TASTE? In Toronto, Garth Woolsey reported a “bizarre figurine” was being sold on eBay that depicted the scene from a March ’89 game when former NHL G Clint Malarchuk’s throat was cut by a skate blade. Pennsylvania resident Bill Herold, who customized a McFarlane Sports figurine to include the blood, said, “I have NO intention of disrespecting Mr. Malarchuk. ... It was simply done to show his courage and bravery.” Herold added that he “cut off the sale early, taking [US$40] from an anonymous bidder” (TORONTO STAR, 7/17).
