Now that NHL hockey’s been back on track for a while, it’s time to properly celebrate the 60th season of Hockey Night in Canada and honestly, when you think of HNIC who do you think of first? I know, I know, Don Cherry. But who’s a close second? You can admit it. You’re tuning in to be entertained by the class clown, delightful hand-talking analyst and former Bruins fan favourite, ass kicker #42 P.J. Stock.
Yeah, the folks in Beantown loved P.J., still do. What wasn’t to love when he played for the Black & Gold?
Well, that’s pretty much how it happened. But more importantly, P.J. was just a great guy and really, what’s not to love?
Sorry, what were we talking about? Oh, right. Okay…
Gals, this is where you can go and get yer fella and sit him down in front of the computer and have him learn from the best, P.J. Stock. It’ll only take him a couple of minutes and assure him there will be no figure skating involved.
FOR THE FELLAS: DATING 101 with DATE CONNOISSEUR P.J. STOCK
Okay… take a seat, dude. This’ll only take a coupla minutes. Totally painless.
Now guys, P.J. is great with the ladies. The ladies love P.J. Stock. During the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend in Ottawa, Jamey Ordolis from CBC Live interviewed P.J. and asked him how he’d impress his lady friend by taking her on a fun date.
P.J.’s tips for a night that’ll melt the ice? Gotta be outdoors, fer shure. And he says you need to take a picnic. Isn’t he romantic? Girls like that.
What else does P.J. recommend guys? Hot chocolate with Baileys. Or scotch. Or vodka.
And when you want to get close, you’ve gotta hold hands but fake falling is the way ta go just don’t bring her down with ya. Knocking her down with you is not the way ta go. Hold her head so she doesn’t get knocked out. Safety first. Scotch, vodka, Baileys second.
P.J.’s Perfect Skate Date Tips
P.J.’s Lesson in “Fake Falls”
I’ve cut right to that part in the interview, because I know you likely won’t want to watch the entire interview, because you might think this is some evil attempt to have us make you watch P.J. figure skate.
Now, there. Not only will you be happy because your lady will be happy and because there will be hot chocolate with Baileys. Or scotch. Or vodka.
Go on, get outta here!
Alright gals, now we’ve gotta talk about the pythons.
I’m not talking about P.J.’s Wild Kingdom days back with the Hartford Wolf Pack, I’m talking about when he brought some “Sexy Love” to Battle of the Blades with his Russian figure skating partner Violetta Afanasieva. Gosh, I think we need a refresher if for nothing else, to have a laugh at P.J. impersonating his mom Cathy and talking about his groin.
Honestly though, the highlight of the season was week five when they skated to The Animals “House of the Rising Sun” for the Halloween show. Go watch. P.J. loses a tooth and Jeremy Roenick’s wig, well, it’s awesome.
This, not so awesome unless you’re into that sort of thing.
So gals, P.J. Stock. Our guy, the best in hockey broadcasting without a doubt, fer shure. Hopefully your guy learned a thing or two, and um, don’t forget to tune into CBC on Saturdays. Or just bookmark this link.
(Psssssst! Don’t forget to follow him on Twitter where you can see fun things like Kris Letang visiting Adrenaline Performance Center, high school glory days relived, and yet another one of P.J.’s questionable choices in evening wear exposed.)
