When I saw this photo, I nearly burst my spleen laughing. WHO DOES THESE? Either brilliant or tragic, you decide.
Yah00! Puck Daddy caption: “Dude, senior prom was weird this year.”
My first thought was: This is how they make their moves on the ladies. Let me dim the lights by throwing my jersey over this IKEA lamp. Although they both do it numbers-side up. Show-offs.
In the skills competition, Mike competed in Fastest Skater against Steven Stamkos. I’m sorry, what? Ovi couldn’t help but steal Mike’s TV moment. Here’s how I imagine this going:
Ovi: Mike, you not very fast. Stamkos fast. Also, Stamkos 20 years old. You not so young. And Stamkos weigh like 185. You not so skinny. He a race car, you a Vespa. So Mike, how you think you do?
Mike: Stop c***-blocking me, douche.
Mike only lost by half a second, which I think is pretty impressive.
Mike also competed in the Skills Challenge Relay, doing right-handed one-timers from the blue line. He followed Kris Letang (best defensive pair EVER) and did well. Tanger had a tough time getting pucks up, Mike did a little better. I was like a nervous mom.
Apparently, Sports Illustrated’s red carpet interview question was “What should you win an Oscar for?” Mike answered, “My hairdo.” But should he? I think he may have been topped this weekend:
He’s good good angles on the tri-hawk here. But Ryan Kessler has the thorns out:
And the dark horse candidate, no one saw him coming… Rick Nash with the porcupine:
What’s the verdict, does Mike’s hair take home the gold? Can any of these guys get a helmet on over these messes?
