In late August, 60 Seconds caught up with Mikhail "The Big" Grabovski at home. Banging on the door at noon, we hoped to catch the speedy centre having lunch. The door opened and there he stood, dressed in a robe and carrying a glass in one hand.
US: Dude. Uh, may I call you dude?
MG: Maybe. What do you want?
US: We are trying to understand the origin of the bad blood between yourself and the Kostitsyn brothers.
MG: No, is not blood. Is other. You know, pee. Pee-pee. Piss.
US: I'm sorry? Urine?
MG: No urine. Piss. Those two come to my house. Piss all over rug.
US: That's why you don't like each other?
MG: It was great rug. Hold entire room together.
MG: I just want them to pay. Two hundred dollars. Is all. That what I try to tell fans in Montreal. I hold up fingers. Two. Two hundred dollars. Is not much.
US: Have they paid yet?
MG: No. But Komi says he help me kill them now. Shhhhhhhh.
US: Thank you for your time Dude. Say what's that you have there? A White Russian?
MG: No. She Ukrainian. From Mississauga. (giggles)
And, on that note, the door closes.
BTW - There's gotta be a huuuuge market for Grabovski bathrobes don't you think? Dark blue with 54 on the back? 84 for the collectors market?
