ESPN hockey analyst E.J. Hradek apparently holding self hostage

First it was the morbid, haunting footage from hockey analyst Scott Burnside.  Now, in the latest of ESPN's serial killer-themed hockey installments, it's the disturbing video entry from analyst E.J. Hradek.

In the next couple weeks, don't be surprised if you wake up in the middle of the night to a pantsless Hradek holding a candle and whispering his blog entry into a tiny camcorder.

And if you're not creeped out enough already, here's Hradek:
