Hull tweets painful memory

Hall of Famer Brett Hull probably won't ever be a fan favorite in these parts, what with his role in "No Goal" during Game Six of the 1999 Stanley Cup finals.

He likely won't be making any friends in these parts anytime soon since he recently brought up that painful memory with his newly created Twitter account (2ndBestHull).

Hull, the son of Hall of Famer Bobby Hull, recently had an avatar (Twitter-account mug shot) with a Brett Hull is a Cheater T-shirt created by Born in Buffalo company owned by Dave Hassett.

Included was the following tweet: "New pic for all my friends in buffalo xoxo."

USA Today got wind of it. Here's the link to its story http://content.usatoday.com/communities/gameon/post/2011/10/brett-hull-gaining-twitter-followers-while-tweaking-buffalo-fans/1#.TqWCt6_ry-w.mailto.
