With Christmas tomorrow, we figured we would give you some bonus tweets today. It could also be simply because I couldn’t decide which ones to choose out of the hilarious things some of the guys said this past week. And you’ll see by not deciding, I mean I couldn’t decide between numerous tweets from the same people!
So what have the boys been saying this week?
First we have Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul who is back from Russia after admitting he couldn’t adjust. At least he was honest about it. After his return, he gave this bit of advice:
Can I second this and add that same goes for women and perfume? Seriously, try getting on a bus with someone who bathed in cologne or perfume that morning. Not fun.
Next up we have Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson who consistently tweets about a dilemma he has. Last week he brought up a good point:
The other Jack Johnson he is referring to is the singer, who many people mistake him for apparently. I agree Jack, yours does count and his should mention it is the official account for the musician Jack Johnson. I would hate it if someone famous already had my exact name.
Then there’s Colorado Avalanche players Gabriel Landeskog and Paul Stastny talking about the World Juniors:
I can’t wait to see Landeskog in red, white and blue
Now we move to Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney who had a number of good ones this week. First his thoughts on the news that Instagram could sell pictures posted on their site:
Just a guess, but pretty sure his body would not be used as a before photo. Just saying.
Then he had some trouble yesterday he felt the need to tell everyone about:
Yes, losing your wallet sucks but not going to ask how you don’t know what taxi company. And finding grey hair at 29? First of all, pretty sure no one is looking at your chest hair. Secondly, I found grey hair where it’s a lot more noticeable at 20 so no sympathy from me.
Finally we have Strombone1 who everyone knows is Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo making a good analogy of his current position:
Yes, you did that perfectly. For those who don’t get the football reference, here is the backstory.
And his views on the lockout not being over?
I think it’s official. Paul Bissonnette is no longer the king of twitter. Luongo now is.
