Every year, a few NHL teams dust off the funny bones and do Valentine’s cards. The Blackhawks are usually tops at this (and most) games, but this year’s are surprisingly mediocre [link]. Still, I was prepared to give them this year’s heart-shaped cake for this gem:
Can’t lose with an *N Sync joke, right? That should be a slam dunk.
Bahahasnortlaughahaha! PHIL-ings! I’ve got Phil-ings about your bowl haircut and what you insist on wearing, Kessel, but nothing this funny. I see him laughing at all the guys traded to/from the Leafs today, while at the same time silently shaking his head, “No, God no!” at Stamkos.
This one also made me snarf. The word “horn” always makes me laugh like a 7th grader in health class-slash-Georgia Nicholson.
The Sid card is cute…
But it’s not as good or true as this:
Here are all the Penguins Valentine’s. Honorable mention for the adoration derp they caught on Kris Letang’s face:
You know I hate to say it, but some of these Flyers Valentine’s are pretty funny. If you’re into orange and liking things you hate.
I assume these Bolts cards are from 2016, because if people have been saying “bae” for over a year I’ll feel even more despair about American culture. (Update: These are from last year. I give up on you, American youth.)
Did I miss any teams that have 2016 cards? The Predators did Valentines last year [link], but I’m not sure how they could top the weird and scared feeling this conveyed:
We’ll be on the lookout for more cards this week, even thought all our PHIL-ings may be committed already.Tags: claude giroux, jakob voracek, Kris Letang, patrick hornqvist, phil kessel, Sidney Crosby
