Nope, I'm Not Buying This Kid Saying "Everything Like That" Ten Times In One Short Postgame Interview
Hey kid, fuck you. I know when I am being made sport of, and quite frankly I don't appreciate it. Thinking you're going to get me to sit here and write a blog about how dumb you are for repeating the same damn phrase once every two seconds just so you can announce later that it was just a big locker room gag? Hell no. I would rather assume that you don't have the memory of a goldfish, and be proven wrong after the fact. Remember 'Super Troopers'? I couldn't be more certain that this is a "meow" situation. Sure, he's a high school kid that hasn't spent all that much time in front of the camera. Sure, he seems rather excitable. Still, that's not an excuse for repeating a rather elaborate expression TEN times in ONE minute. Having made a bet with your teammates, on the other hand, absolutely is.
I actually hope to God that this an elaborate ruse, because if it's not then this kid must be insufferable to be around. IF it wasn't intentional then he better make it to the NHL, because the day he stops having teammates is the day he is going to have ZERO friends. Ever been around someone that says "like" multiple times a sentence and had someone draw your attention to it? It will literally drive you insane, and that's just a filler word, not a full-on postscript of every thought. That's why I have to believe this was a joke, because no one is taking the captain of their hockey team seriously when he ends every sentence with "everything like that". You don't get the respect of the locker when they want to tape your mouth shut because they can't reach far enough down your throat to rip your voice box out. You get the respect of the locker room by pulling a fast one on a local reporter and becoming a viral sensation, and everything like that.
