…the more they stay the same. Actually, a few people were surprised about Joe Thornton’s impression of Greg Luganis (honestly…not trying to go the homophobe route…but I don’t know any other Olympic Divers…sorry, USA). But the fact is – we had a problem with the Sharks taking dives last year. So much in fact, that I was inspired to make this movie poster:
Of course, Evgeni Nabokov is long gone. Hell, we even tried to sign him this season. But Jumbo Joe takes his spot on this poster (notice the detail I went into on those smaller pics).
Speaking of predictable scapegoats…everyone has probably heard of Jeremy Roenick’s calling out of Patrick Marleau…calling him gutless or referencing his heart. So I decided to play a little game on the Twitter to see where everyone thought that Patrick Marleau’s guts had gone.
The hashtag was #wheresmarleausguts and here are some of my favorite responses:
vockeea said: Datsyuk stole those too
FightNightatJoe said: In the same place as Roenick’s cup rings.
slater1991 said: I think Joe Thornton dove onto them and squished them.
Whoabot said: Hanging out with Thornton’s spine and Setoguchi’s balance.
ChrisDF0 said: Inside Kyle Wellwood’s stomach.
jjhparker said: With Sharks fans general hockey knowledge.
…to which Ryan Lambert replied:
Awesome stuff. And don’t worry if you don’t follow the whole Twitterspeak and hashtag talk…it’s a Jersey thing.
