It’s starting. In preparation for the Sochi Olympics and all you Americans who insist on rooting for America, we are…
Before undertaking this Phil Kessel makeover reality TV show, perhaps we should have watched 24/7. Perhaps Intern Jeff Skinner should stop terrorizing my team with multi-goal games and do some blogging so I can watch TV, but that’s not going to happen. So we rely on friends.
In her campaign to make me and Lindsay , as she calls it, “Leafs tolerant,” Alison sent us this:
Right? This makeover business isn’t going to be so hard! First of all, Phil’s condo is major. A four-poster bed and a bathroom big enough for a hockey rink… I dream of architecture and natural light. And their dog – a dog, you guys!
For cuddling! In front of not three but FOUR TVs. Are they all hooked to one remote? If so, this is heaven. Can I order pizza and/or launch the space shuttle from there? I might not even need to throw a rager and invite you guys over.
I love how they set-decorated the living area (don’t try to tell me they have placemats out all the time) but didn’t bother even making Bozie’s bed. BOYS. Maybe Phil is OCD for cleaning – AWESOME. Live with a guy someday and you’ll wish for such ridiculous luxury. Or that vase of (probably fake) flowers atop his dresser.
So, are we getting there? Do matching thermals and toques (Canadian word alert), plus a bromance alive and well bring you a step closer to seeing Phil’s charm? You can introduce your friends to his charming, homeless roommate. That bit at the end about looking like idiots really melted our frozen hockey hearts. Any chance they’d let us dog- and house-sit over the next road trip?
Don’t worry, we’ll be back with more installments of Presenting Phil Kessel. Or what this really is: The Millionaire Matchmaker (Mr. Pants loves that show). Don’t worry Phil, we’ve got this.
Right now we need to watch 24/7.Tags: phil kessel, Toronto Maple Leafs, tyler bozak
