So I know I just wrote a blog about how selling children isn't the greatest idea, but let's hit the negotiating table. Seriously, how much for this little guy? An attitude like that is too natural to be taught. This may sound weird but I feel like this kid has all the qualities I am looking for in a son. Hell, he has all the qualities I am looking for in a friend. Age ain't nothing but a number. We can hit the bar, fire up a few pints of Odoul's and emasculate Rangers fans from sea to shining sea. He may not be a Devils fan, but as long as he is rooting against the Rangers then we are on the same team.
When you get Mutumbo'd by a seven year old should you be required to leave the arena? I mean, you might be required to turn in your jersey and become a fan of a sport that requires less shit talking. May I suggest tennis or golf? I don't know what the right way to respond to a little kid wagging his finger in your face is, but I know it's not to stare blankly back in disbelief. Maybe look down at your phone and pretend it didn't happen? Can't get flat out sonned by someone half your size. Ironic that the boot came into the picture at the last second, because this kid just got curb stomped by someone that doesn't even know his times tables.
And don't think I missed the fact that the Rangers fan looks like Rick Nash after a month long carbo-load. Hell,maybe they should switch places. Ricky can take some time away from practicing his annual disappearing act and finally try to intimidate someone, and this kid can feel better about himself when a few grown men metaphorically castrate him instead of a second grader. In a way this is just a microcosm of the series. The chubby dude that looks completely lost is Nash, and the young kid that's full of swagger is Holtby. To think that Rangers fans actually had a sense of confidence heading into the 3rd. Good thing lil' Dikembe was there to go hard in the paint and block his optimism. Hell, he straight up swatted his ego out the doors of Gate B. He's gonna see that kid and his cocky little finger wag in his nightmares all offseason. Can't wait until game 5 when he's finally put to bed. Don't worry buddy, it will all be over soon...
