I never imagined I’d thank the Rangers for anything, but the day has come.
Reminder: Chris Kreider went to BC. See also: I hate myself.
The Rangers took to the beach in Venice to shake off their Game 1 OT loss and work on their tans. Pale guys with beards – that’s what playoff hockey is all about.
I hope at least one guy visited the $5 psychic who told me my entire, very specific future on this boardwalk. So far, she’s been freakishly right about a lot of things.
I also hope everyone was wearing buckets of SPF 50. Remember when Malkin had to sit out a Pens game due to “upper body injury” after an off-day in Florida? You don’t want to be peeling during the pre-game skate.
Chris Krieder-inspired self-loathing aside, the best part of these photos is the conversation I imagined between Brian and Marc:
Boyle: Was that…?
Ginger Staal: Yes.
Boyle: Was he…?
Ginger Staal: Yup.
As Mats Zuccarello rides by…
In North American fashion, a guy would wear these shorts under other shorts. Not so in Europe. As the first Norwegian to play in a Stanley Cup Final, Zuccarello owns this look – which would get him sent home from Catholic school because his shorts don’t reach his extended fingertips.
Hey, it’s LA. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. I can see the US Weekly cover photo and headline: Zach Galifianakis shows off amazing new beach bod!
Thanks to Pam (@sunnyinnj) for sending these over. She loves trying to make me like guys I think I hate.Tags: New York Rangers
