the term gong show is widely used in the hockey locker rooms across canada. it has become the nickname of many out-of-control young men. while mainly used by hockey players, the common person may use it in everyday conversation. to be a gong show, one must be able to pull the chute, as well as be crazy, stupid, loud, obnoxious, annoying, out of control, confused, a frequent streaker, terribly unlucky, inept, a drunk, a lazy ass, or any combination of all of these
spence is a definite gongshow. tonight, at dinner before the game, he choked on a piece of chicken, coughed it up into his nasal cavity, blew it out his nose, and ate it again. in the game he got in a fight, broke a guys leg, and scored a goal. afterward, he put on his pink sunglasses and hopped in the shower with the team, then ran naked through the rink giggling like a little girl.
