Let’s talk about this:
Not Kate Middleton gossip, remembering Ryan Reynolds is Canadian or even Angelina being honored with an extra “u” from the Queen. I mean the important stuff.
You are reading that right. Thanks to @tobelerone for seeing this first!
This is a real story. IN A MAGAZINE. It’s teased on the cover! I love Canada. You’d have to run out of divorces, Duck Dynasties, Duggars (not possible) and basically all forms of life on Earth before an American gossip magazine would run a hockey story.
I want to be in the pitch meeting where ranking attractive hockey players gets discussed on a regular basis.
I bet the voting process starts with the NHL Awards.
Jeff Carter gets engaged and then married within about an hour of winning the Cup and ruins everything.
They brainstorm all summer, counting on shirtless boat-selfies as campaign strategy. There are heated debates, anonymous picspam sabotage attempts and pitch calls to Dude Perfect. The entire office is covered in photos and notes, like a live-action Tumblr feed.
The problem is: if you do this list right, it’s predictable. Maybe even boring – if you’re bored by things like Sidney Crosby. Or this blog. I assume Hello! Canada will pick 10 Canadian players, but perhaps there’s room on this list for a Swede (or a Star) or two.
We can’t see the whole list online – who’s going to tell us which eight other players make the cut? More importantly, what are your guesses?Tags: pk subban, Sidney Crosby
