For a little while Thursday, it appeared new Rangers center Brad Richards' Twitter account (@brichards_1991) had been hacked. That seemed to be the case even more when the "hacker" said he was Tommy Lee. Just take a look at the tweet on Richards' account above.
Turns out it actually was Tommy Lee, the Motley Crue drummer. But the account wasn't hacked. Lee just had a little fun with Richards' account after the Rangers center forgot to log out while in a New York hotel that Motley Crue happened to be in, too.
So I suppose you could say it was Motley Crue to the rescue of Richards. There's a good amount of people who would have had some of their own fun with his account.
It's a great story that makes for a pretty memorable visit for Richards to his new home. And the Rangers might have just gained a new fan in Lee, who Richards invited to a game this season.
In the end, it's a Dr. Feelgood story.
