Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Kim Kardashian's husband of 72 days Kris Humphries isn't on an NBA team at the moment, but if the Syracuse Crunch has its way, he won’t be out of professional sports for much longer.
Syracuse's AHL team has offered the scorned husband and NBA veteran a position on its roster or in its front office.
Humphries saw his life and marriage to reality TV star Kardashian become a running national joke during his regular appearance on the E! Network's 'Keeping up the Kardashians' series.
"We would welcome Kris Humphries to Syracuse, where unlike Hollywood there are no paparazzi within hundreds of miles and he could reclaim his privacy and self-esteem," said Syracuse Crunch General Manager Vance Lederman. "Being from Minnesota, Humphries will surely enjoy the hockey and feel right at home in the cold, gray, dismal weather we experience this time of year in Central New York."
The Crunch said it will allow Humphries use of their state of the art training facility and provide a certified personal trainer who will be available to the basketball star as he attempts to earn a spot with a NBA team.
In paying homage to the short-lived Kardashian/Humphries union, fans can purchase a six-pack of tickets to either the club's Dec. 16 or Dec. 17 game for just $72.
