It’s an awkward moment in any boss’ career when you realize that, over the summer, your intern became hot.
We could dial that back down a few notches to “attractive,” because Intern Jeff Skinner will always have the face of a 12-year old and be our equivalent of a little brother. But it’s safe to say that he has well and truly ditched the title “The Justin Bieber of Hockey” – because Justin Beiber is still in a child’s body while Jeff is all dimples and built like Beyonce.
I’m just saying: this guy still works for free. Obviously we make him lift a lot of very heavy things. Perhaps we should consider a clothing allowance since his outfits are so snug, but it’s not like we told him to do the ice bucket challenge in a white t-shirt. The moment it was over, he – and everyone else – realized it was a bit too scandalous for the Disney Channel and ran off-screen.
Now Chuck thinks we need a new intern; suggestions are welcome. The new guy can clean her office. I will never give up Intern Jeff, who’s only 22, because he won the Calder even when I didn’t vote for him and we do a mean duo lip-sync of the entire Ed Sheeran song catalog in alpha-order. So what if he looks better than I do?
I get paid to work here, after all. No slacking off.
Intern Jeff led the Canes with his career-high 33 goals last season. The JStaal-less team kicks off their new year October 10 vs. the Islanders. We’d like to see them do well – but not too well. How does third in the Metropolitan Division behind the Pens and Capssound? Or does that spot go to Tavares & the Islanders now? This is the problem with having a favorite player on every team.Tags: carolina hurricanes, Intern Jeff Skinner
