Canucks Ego Alert

I know I've been absent around these parts, but now that we're into the offseason, there isn't really much to talk about.  Sales of bottled Luongo Tears are not nearly where I expected them to be.  I suspect Bobby Lu has granted someone else access to the formula for sodium chokeride.

As it is, I have something to share today.  My ex-brother (I say "ex" due to the Canucks ball cap in the pic below) was down in Vegas for the NHL awards.  Good times were had, including partying with Roenick, meeting Danielle Sedin, playing slots with Dale Hunter, and hanging at the club with Corey Perry.  Plus, this little bit of gold from the pool at the Palms.  (I blank out his face mostly to save you from his ugly mug, but also because his kids might have to live with this shame some day.  And I really love the nephews.)


Note the highlighted area on Kesler's perfectly sculpted shoulder (What can I say? The guy is effin' ripped).  Here's the zoom:


Really Ryan?  A Superman shield with a "K"?  I was so surprised that I assumed this was some sort of temporary douchebaggery, so I looked it up.  Verification here and here (and if anyone ever repeats that I punched "Ryan Kesler naked" into Google image search, I'll rip out their throat).  I know that the innertubes are a big place and I am not the first to notice this, but I think it deserves to be shown again.  What an amazing display of egotism.  I fully expect him to get "Ryan Kesler is AWESOME!" tattooed across his back.  Fuck me.

Go Flames!!!

wait, so you punched Ryan Kesler in the throat so hard, his close came off? I am going to google that, just to make sure.

Ha! "Danielle" Sedin, just caught that. Hey, maybe the "K" in the tat stands for "Kanucks"...

So how were Daniel and Kes on a personal level? Were they kinda' quiet, modest hockey players? Did you bother to ask or were you so consumed with your irrational hatred you overlooked any human emotion?

Laugh it up you bottom feeders. To put it in terms you flatlanders will understand... Make hay while you can. Come october, your collection of never were's and over the hills will begin their march to a "close but no cigar" season while your hated rival Canucks will make another deep run in the playoffs. We probably won't win the ultimate prize, but it will be a damn sight better than your pathetic showing.

Revel in our inability. It's really all you have.

mikeH's brother is a massive canucks fan, and it was he who met d&k in vegas during the nhl awards weekend. so my guess is that he found them all to be very friendly, if not modest. the post is mikeH (a flames fan)'s take on it all.

making fun of the canucks is a flames' fan's natural born right. i even think you used to find
it funny sometimes....

also, the funniest thing going right now is how bad the flames' future looks. through our tears, we will laugh it up alongside you (i, for one, thought it HILARIOUS that regehr waived AFTER the first round of the draft).

so yes. we will revel in every goal bobbylu gives up, and every dive from alex burrows. because yes, it's all we've got.

sanity is at a premium.

Word back from my brother was the D.Sedin was nice and let him grab a photo even though he was with his family. Kesler on the other hand, sounds like a bit of a jerk. The Regehr trade rumours were just starting, and they asked him what he thought. Kesler said it would be too bad if he was traded, because it was nice having a soft d-man to play against.

Even if we give him his opinion of Reggie's talents, that's still a dick thing to say. Weird, who would have thought a guy with a tattoo of his own initial in a superman shield would be a jerk?

Other players they met were generally awesome. Roenick had them into his VIP area at the club and Dale Hunter was a gentleman. And I share WI's opinion of our chances this season. My forecast - 13th place.

Kes-douche has about as much dignity as the Canucks have cups.

LeBron James has "The Chosen One" tatted across his back. This summer just didn't bode well for the pro athletes who egotistically ink themselves and their respective teams.

haha I bet that that tattoo must have hurt more than usual hahahaha
