Have To Appreciate Denver's Goalie Dropping The Most Casual Curse Of All Time In A Post-Championship Interview
So it turns out women have been right all along, who knew? Seriously, if this clip is any indication then what you say truly isn't as important as how you say it. Well, at least that's the case when you're talking to a reporter that's more concerned with fitting all his boring questions into a small window than actually paying attention to the answers.
Props to Tanner Jalliet for confidently dropping a "we fucking won" with conviction while somehow avoiding an emphasis on the expletive. I can definitively say that he's a better man than I for being able to cloak his cusses in casualness. They say the ability to make it look easy is a quality that most successful netminders possess, so it's no surprise that the kid that snuck a "fuck" into the middle of a televised interview is the same guy that won the 'Mike Richter Award' as the best collegiate goaltender while backstopping the National Champions.
I'm pretty sure he didn't even do it purpose, which makes the fact that he managed to do it discretely even more impressive. If I had to guess I would say he was speaking from pure adrenaline, and his ability to channel that adrenaline is probably what helped him stop 16 third period shots and ultimately gave him the opportunity to inconspicuously curse into a microphone as a winner. Maybe having a potty mouth whose shit doesn't stink too badly has nothing to do stopping a crap load of pucks, but it's been a 1-to-1 correlation since I started paying attention.
