It was truly something out of a movie.
You have your piece of shit villain, Gary Bettman, who in real life is a terrible person. You have your underdog hockey player in John Scott who is being pulled in two different directions. Should he play in the All Star Game that the fans voted him in to or listen to the naysayers?
After a Players Tribune article came out it turns out the naysayers were in fact people who run the league and particular General Managers. And once they threw at him and asked that if he participated in the game would it be something his children were ‘proud of’. Scott says fuck that and that lights a fire. He moves forward and is now set to captain the Pacific Division.
With 5 career goals, multiple suspensions, trades to different teams and cities, uprooting his family on several occasions. It hasn’t been a glamorous NHL career that someone like Jonathan Toews enjoys. Regardless Scott takes this probably once in a lifetime opportunity.
As typical as a Hollywood ending goes for a story about the underdog: John Scott scores two goals and is the MVP of the All Star Game. He also given a classic lift from his teammates and had his ‘Rudy’ moment. Easily the best All Star Game in recent memory. He stuck it to the naysayers, he burned Jeremy Roenick on the bench in an interview.
Must’ve felt pretty sweet taking that million dollar check from Gary Bettman’s hands after being named MVP of the game he tried keeping John Scott from.
Yeah a musketeer who sucks at being a musketeer. Kessel would be the weakest musketeer of all time. If Kessel was a musketeer and they made costumes that portrayed Kessel and they were sold at like Party City, they wouldn’t sell. Even a six year old would realize that Kessel would be a terrible musketeer. Chuck Sheen was a bad ass Musketeer from the 1993 film “The Three Musketeers”.
Also, I love Grabovski’s closing remarks:
“I don’t care about that team. Who cares? My team is here.”
I don’t care what anyone says I really don’t. This guy is as soft as baby shit and he’s a borderline creep. Actually take borderline outta the equation and let’s just go with he’s a fuckin creep. He looks like Johnny’s friend from the Karate Kid who announced at the tournament in the dojo that they should put Laruso in a body bag. NOBODY TALKS SHIT ABOUT RALPH MACCHIO.
CASE AND POINT
I’m gonna start off with this video
That’s Kessel from the Karate Kid, God he sucks
Here’s Kessel being just super awkward..probably drinkin All-Sport
I straight up typed in ‘kessel awkward’ on youtube and sure enough this one popped up and so did this next one…
Yup, that’s it. Bro you’re terrible.
This next one is the reason why I proclaimed that he’s as soft as baby shit. Yeah you got John Scott comin after you, but…defend yourself. Don’t shy away and swing at him with your stick and hit him like a baseball, then you low blow him by him doin it to Scott while he’s down?
Crosby at least defends himself. I hope you don’t make team USA.
Also, stop doin the candycane tape job to your sticks…kids did that when they were like 8.
