Brandon Dubinsky, Jody Shelley And The Winter Classic War Of Words

HBO's award-winning documentary series 24/7 will again follow the participants of the Winter Classic this year, and on Friday night, the cable network aired a 15-minute preview of the show.

That preview was supposed to get fans excited for the upcoming series that will feature the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers, and that's exactly what it did.

About six minutes into the program, members of the two teams were asked their opinions on the opposition. Jody Shelley, a former Rangers and current Flyers enforcer, chimed in with a pretty priceless quote.

It comes about six minutes into this video. Shelley says that Brandon Dubinsky, one of his former teammates, "plays like a little weasel." You didn't think Dubinsky was going to just let that go, did you?

Via the New York Daily News, his retort on Monday:

First of all, if I was him, I'd keep my mouth shut if I don't play, especially since I never see him on the ice," Dubinsky said of Shelley, who has played in only 10 of Philadelphia's 23 games this season. "He's usually just yapping from the bench, and I guess now he's yapping from behind the video camera. So that's about all I have to say."

That was not all Dubinsky had to say. "Jody Shelley - it won't be long before he's out of the league, because he's a terrible hockey player," he added.

Ooooh, boy. HBO 24/7 begins airing on December 14, and will run new episodes for four consecutive Wednesday evenings. The Flyers and Rangers play twice -- including the Winter Classic -- during that stretch. We probably won't have to hear that long before hearing from Shelley again, though.
