Nicky B and iCarly hosted a hockey school yesterday. First John goes on vacation with Mike, now this? [video] It’s like an all-out offensive being launched against me and Gator.
It’s great to see Backstrom doing anything these days. We have not heard that he’s skating or even working out, though he looks energetic here. Apparently iCarly’s dorky high-five doesn’t count as contact.
As happy as this makes us… Nicklas, we need to talk about your pants. John’s are excellent color and fit, plus “distressed” or “vintage” if you must. But yours… is that stonewash? With black shoes?
They could almost be skinny jeans – I’m not really even sure how you got them on over those legs. If they’re borrowed from Ovi, you should give them right back. Unless you’re trying to make that girl in the head-to-toe shamrock romper feel better about what she wore to work.
There are certain things we’re willing to put aside for the love of hockey – Mike’s problem with ‘your’ vs. ‘you’re’ and James Neal’s personal pronoun confusion. But these jeans and that camouflage Under Armor on Matt Duchene are close to the line. You’re so perfect and European but even we have limits.
Regardless, we love you. Come back soon. Wear hockey pants, they look weird on everyone.Tags: John Carlson, nicklas backstrom, washington capitals
