The best revenge after being dumped is to become more attractive. Exponentially, impossibly, space-and-time-threateningly more attractive.
Like James Neal at the 4 minute mark of this post-game coverage.
The second best part, right after his face, is how much James hates doing this interview. He doesn’t get sassy, drones through cliches like I nap through episodes of Boardwalk Empire and says nothing. Repeatedly.
It’s almost as if he’s testing to see if they’ll keep asking questions we’ll keep watching.
Please. I paused it to make popcorn and come back.
The Pens’ only counter to this rakish hair-times-gingerbeard-equals-destruction is to mess with Neal’s car on their recent trip to Nashville. [In the Ropm: S4, E2]
It’s funny, of course, but we all know you tease the one you like the most.
The Preds have a new episode of Beneath the Ice up, in which James was apparently learning to cook. Rich Clune, humanitarian. Before Clune’s waivers/AHL assignment, hopefully James learned a few survival skills – like that Lamborghini is ridiculous and I will always make fun of it. (Correction from Alison: It’s a Ferrari. Apparently I never recovered from Mike Green’s white Lambo and confused the sleeve-tattooed, bearded drivers and their white chariots of overcompensation.)
In the next episode, James gets the A. From Peter Laviolette. Maybe we should have seen it coming? Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy hated each other basically right up until it started raining.
James is leading Nashville with 9 G, and tied for second with 14 points. The Preds are second in their division, one point behind St. Louis, and third overall in the West. They play tonight in Toronto, where you know all the Ontario boys love to show off in front of their family and friends.Tags: james neal, nashville predators, rich clune
