If you’re the NHL’s First Star of the Week, you’re already having a time. It’s not really fair that you also look like this:
Jeez, Stamkos. Leave something for the mere mortals.
If you download the issue, you get a bonus behind the scenes video of this photo shoot. Did I mention it’s only $2.99? It should be $299.99. Of you could have Lindsay, who went to great lengths to make sure I/we got to see the highlights:
Whose job is it to soak just the chest of his t-shirt? Does that require a Canadian government security clearance (which I would never get because of this blog)? And one of those shampoo visors from the 80’s that fits around his torso?
It’s exactly, perfectly half of his shirt.
Not that you’re looking at his shirt anymore.
Kidding, I’m kidding! Nice watch.
His legs are rather skinny, which must be the aerodynamic prototype for, say, skating 100 MPH or static jumping 7 feet in the air. Also the reason for creating slim-cut suit pants.
This one is my favorite – just Steven and a thermostat. Insert “Is it hot in here or just me?” joke.
So stylish and composed, yes? Classy and unflappable? Not entirely.
Congrats to Steven on being Steven and winning awards. It’s what he does. This time it might just work on a larger scale – the Lightning have won three in a row and sit atop the Eastern Conference.
The Bolts have… hang on. My phone is ringing.
What’s that? I cut off the standing above the Islanders?
But you prefer this one and I have to include all the way to the bottom?
I get it. You are not interested in Stamkos’ faux-sweaty t-shirt. Or his legs. No, I don’t think special effects are involved in the making of those high-jump videos. Yes, I can stop talking about other players when you’re having a rough day.
I guess somebody didn’t like being reminded about that missed penalty shot back in the day.
Oh, I’m kidding. Poor John, the Isles traded his BFF Matt Moulson to Buffalo. In that vein, poor Matt Moulson. I didn’t know Tavares was the godfather of Moulson’s daughter – that makes me want to cry.
