Mark Messier is Meat Loaf's favorite hockey player. In fact, I've been told Messier is the fan favorite among most meat products. It must be all that MSG flavor enhancer.
Meat Loaf recently summed up Messier's career quite nicely:
Joe - "Mr. Loaf, tell me about Mark Messier."
Meat - "Ah yes, It's All Coming Back To Me Now. When he first arrived in Edmonton, he was like a Bat Out Of Hell. Yet for all his success in Edmonton, New York city was his Paradise By The Dashboard Light. Especially after 1994, when the city really fell in love with Mark Messier.
Joe - He was known as a player who would do what ever it took?
Meat - He Would Do Anything For Love (But He Won't Do That).
Joe - What about the move to Vancouver? That was a real Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Meat - Well, Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad.
Joe - I'm not so sure about that. But all was forgotten when he returned to New York.
Meat - Not A Dry Eye In The House.
Joe - Especially Messier's.
Meat - You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth. I Couldn't Have Said It Better.
Joe - Tell me your favorite story of hanging out with Mark Messier
Meat - There was one very special night. It was like Midnight At The Lost And Found. It was myself, Mess, and this Hot Patootie named Madonna. Let me tell you about Madonna. Good Girls Go To Heaven (Bad Girls Go Everywhere).
Joe - Are you telling me the truth?
Meat - Rock And Roll Dreams Come Through. I'd Lie For You (And That's The Truth).
