Anaheim Ducks Enforcer George Parros Has It All: Brains, Brawn and a Ripping Mustache
Despite injuries, a horrible pre-season and dire predictions from NHL experts to the likes of"Anaheim Sucks"
("Ducks outscored 13-2, outshot 100+ to 35. From Niedermayer/Pronger to Mara/Brookbank? LOL. On pace for 0-82 this season. If you turn theOC Register
upside down the Ducks would be in 1st. KINGS, baby, bow down to us.")—yes, despite all this, the Ducks won their home opener against Vancouver at the Honda Center last night, 4-3.

And, the good news keeps coming as the Ducks' 6-foot-5, 250-pound right wing George Parros was recently named the fourth smartest athlete by The Sporting News.
The morning before fans would learn their Canucks lost to the Quackers, "Gross Misconduct" columnist Ian Walker had fun in the Vancouver Sun with Parros, the enforcer's brainy distinction and the ripping mustache he rocks.
Here's what we learn:
- Parros' dad was a Toys "R" Us executive and his best Christmas gift was a Castle Grayskull of He-Man fame.
Don't hate him because he's beautiful . . . and smart.
