John Tavares wants to control his emotions:
That is, assuming he has any. I certainly can’t control mine – this ad campaign gives me the stupid giggles, defeating the obvious intention to hypnotize me with John’s voice. I half-heard it while dozing off, but I’m suddenly inspired to buy a lot of shaving cream and an Islanders jersey.
Try saying, “I’m really excited” without sounding excited at all. You can’t. It’s impossible when we’ve gone from this:
To this in five months:
Aces. It’s a Before & After when the before was pretty freakin’ great to start with and the after is just bam! – messy hair and boyfriend sweaters. Not to say the pleats and belts have gone away – I hope not, honestly – but it seems like someone is reading this blog for fashion suggestions & approval.
And we approve.
If you’re going to be a part-time model, you have to raise your game (face).
On Saturday vs. Philly, John had a goal waved off because of a marginally, microscopically earlier penalty by a teammate. He was furious (and rightfully so), but the outburst was so emotional that @DLF1021 and I laughed. Remember that time in November he got an unsportsmanlike minor for yelling at a ref? I forgot this face could do that.
John will be included in the first episode of NHL Revealed, airing Wednesday Jan 22. There are commercials for this in Canada, but I haven’t seen any stateside and I can’t find them online. Just as well – I’m supposed to be controlling my emotions.
John *just* scored to tie vs. Philly 1-1. Emotions not controlled!
With that John moves to 2nd in the NHL in points. Get excited.
(By the time I got to post, the Flyers have scored again and John drew a penalty. So we’re still getting there.)
