It’s that time of year again. BRUINS PLAYOFF HOCKEY BABY.
So I went looking at Gordon Ramsay videos and found this and laughed for about 10 minutes.
follow me on twitter I’m a blast
announcers: "i think karlsson just lost his teeth!" "i don’t know steggy, those looked like little tobacco packets?? and he just spit them right out." "i’m not sure what that was!"

Remember the Jonathan Toews-LeBron James meme that arose after their respective championships last season? It was a Twitter picture of a handwritten sheet that claimed Toews said “we” 14 times and never said “I” in his post-championship-winning press conference, while LeBron said “I” 18 times and never said “we.” It was gleefully re-tweeted by hockey fans, by hockey broadcasters, by hockey players, by thousands and thousands.
Funny thing: in LeBron’s post-game transcript he said “we” 16 times, by my count; in his on-ice interview on the CBC right after winning Toews said “I” five times. And neither number meant anything.
So why do hockey fans do this? Why does basketball, a sport in which Canada is surging, need to be torn down to lift up hockey? There’s a racial component underlying some of it, which is sad and ignorant, but why? Is it insecurity? A need to create and fend off an other? Hockey is built on an incredibly strong sense of community, on a powerful sense of team versus individual, and those are part of what makes it great. And whenever this debate rises up, a part of hockey decides that hockey’s greatness alone isn’t enough.

This is really, really, really important stuff people.
I present to you, a very disoriented, grumpy and shirtless Erik Karlsson being abruptly awoken.
