The lockout is making people CRAZY. First Toews is using a baseball bat for hockey and Giroux, a golf club. Crosby’s wandering free in civilian clothes, striking fear into the heart of pockets everywhere (and fangirl sobs into ours). Patrick Kane took his mom to Switzerland, for heaven’s sake.
Now I’ve figured out where Intern Jeff Skinner’s been all this time…
Back in June at the MuchMusic Video Awards… stop. Hockey players at pop awards shows and people actually know who they are? BLESS YOU, CANADA. NHL players can barely get on the ESPN Espy’s red carpet here, and only because someone assumes they are Jessica Alba’s bodyguards. Anyway, I digress. At that magical show, this happened.
That’s Intern Jeff Skinner’s mark, as far away from a girl as possible. We did convince him to rock the white v-neck because all the cool kids were doing it.
Just when we thought it was business as usual, a photo of Jeff and Degrassi actress Cristine Prosperi! He’s still doing the hoverhand but at least he’s next to her. God, the awkward prom glory of it all.
Then right afterward… dammit, Tyler. We obviously assumed the obvious obviousness of this, which ended in Jeff getting a ride home with Subban and Seguin, well, being Seguin. WUYS hopes and dreams shattered.
Until now. This photo, posted actress Jessica Tyler (on the right) from the Degrassi wrap party last night, was captioned “Couples Retreat.”
You like how I wrote that as if I know what it means? Some things are so Canadian they are beyond even me, like Degrassi. Rumor has it the show aired in the States, but if it fell out of the sky and landed on me, I wouldn’t recognize it.
It landed on Intern Jeff Skinner instead, he seems pret-ty happy about it.
With nothing else to go on, we give this Cristine Prosperi girl our approval based solely on her excellent taste in polite and handsome young men.
It’ll be great when we have her over for an awkward meet-the-bosses party, and she and I leave dinner to do the “Beauty and a Beat” round on Just Dance 4.
