Nik Backstrom’s Grandma Hates Him




By Doud


Aftonbladet: “He will make a fool of himself.  He has played so poorly.”


Safe to say Nik doesn’t get birthday cards with like $20 from G-ma anymore.  Grandma Backstrom legit could be the only person in the history of humanity that’s basically pissed off one of her kin is representing her homeland in the friggen Olympic Games.  Not at all proud of her grandson’s accomplishment and gives no fucks.  Gotta imagine this sparks his will to capture gold and tournament MVP just to shove it in his crusty-ass granny’s face.

Sweden Rockin Raincoats in Sochi 2014 Games

The Islanders will never live down their gorton fisherman logo and jerseys from the mid 90s but Sweden may have joined them with similar scrutiny in the wake of Nike unveiling their sweaters for the upcoming winter games. Last time I checked the games will be held indoors, where it can’t rain, but at least Lundqvist and the Sedins will have somethin to wear while fishing next summer. No word if Nike made the matching hats.
