Following professional sporting careers, athletes can be very diverse in how they spend their days after retirement.

Some go into coaching, some into television work as game analysts and commentators. Others will pursue business pursuits or chase dreams that they have held for years.

And then there is Sean Avery, who is spending his time heckling and harassing homeless people for his own entertainment on Snapchat. No, seriously.

The former NHL player took videos of himself on Snapchat last week asking homeless people in New York for the time, regularly waking them up. Don't believe us? Here's a video. 

Here's more of his antics from Page Six:

"Other posts on Friday included him yelling at pedestrians to get out of the way and one of a skull, boasting, “I just want everyone to know, when I’m violently mean towards people on Snapchat, I always turn around and say ‘I’m sorry.’ ” He then continues, saying, “Bulls - - t. That’s a disclaimer for Snapchat.”

When he received an overall negative reaction from hundreds of people on social media, the idiotic Avery defended his behavior by sharing the definition of “harassment" on his Twitter account - as if that somehow made it any better.

So, what Sean Avery is doing technically isn't harassment. Great, it doesn't make him any better of a human being making fun of people much less well off.

Days before his wedding last year, Avery was arrested and charged with criminal mischief for throwing rocks at cars. That's the kind of person he is.
