Puppies? BAH. That’s not enough. James Neal noticed that some of you had regained consciousness after the pet calendar shoot yesterday, so he went to the Boys & Girls Club.
If you can’t play, this is a really great way to show off your hair and hoodie. Also helping children – that is important too. Especially that one in the penguin hat because everyone knows the main reason to have kids and pets is to make them wear adorable costume-like accessories.
James now has a program called Neal’s Neighborhood where he gives tickets to families so kids can watch Penguins hockey. Can I live in this neighborhood? Does it need a mayor?
One kid asks James if he’s good at hockey. That would be my kid. “My mom likes Crosby better, how come you’re not as good as he is?” and I’d be looking around like I’d never seen that child before in my life.
The kids are encouraged to ask James about his hair. When they get too close with their bunny ears for a picture, he makes sure they don’t mess with the flow.
White tube socks. Boys.
Katie O’Malley asks a tween girl what she’s going to tell people about the James Neal experience, and this girl holds it together 100000018% better than you. What I really want to see are the texts she sent her friends. Oh I can – it’s called the entire James Neal Tumblr Feed.
Or this blog.
Watch the video, appreciate James’ charity initiatives, even volunteer at the B&G Club near your house. They do incredible work and kids are fun! They are witty and honest and awesome and this one, right here, is smarter than everyone in the room.

You’re doing it right, girl.
If this whole thing has you thinking about hot dads, here are a few bonus pictures from yesterday. I don’t know if this is a calendar about pets or cardigans but yes, a thousand times yes.
No word if Crosby participated in the calendar shoot, or if he was presented with a pocket-sized all-black kitten and given the option of holding it or freaking the hell out. I’ll assume this means he chose option B and bought all incriminating video evidence for an immediate destruction spin in that beat up dryer/goal.Tags: chris kunitz, james neal, Kris Letang, pascal dupuis, Pittsburgh Penguins
