Britney Spears Getaway [J. Mark English]

A team from the AHL certainly has a sense of humor....

The Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League have offered Britney Spears a quiet weekend getaway by extending to the troubled pop singer an all expenses paid trip to snow bound northern New York.

"The team and community want to provide Britney Spears with a stress-free environment and the chance to experience a high level of hockey," said Crunch president Howard Dolgon.

"In addition to being 3,000 miles away from Hollywood , Syracuse is light years away from that pretentious environment.

"There won't be paparazzi within a 100 miles."

Spears, who has grabbed headlines with her wild behaviour since splitting from husband Kevin Federline, was in the glare of the media spotlight again at the weekend by shaving her head and getting another tattoo.

The Crunch believes Syracuse would provide the perfect escape for Spears with the city still digging out from a storm that dumped as much as eight feet of snow on upper New York.

The Crunch is also offering any woman who shaves her head a free ticket to their Feb. 24 game against the Manitoba Moose.

If Spears accepts the Crunch's invitation, each member of the club's front office staff will also shave their heads.
