My Internet Hockey Boyfriend

Cross posted (mostly) at Couch Tarts

(Apologies to my actual boyfriend who is on the internet but not into hockey. Also Steve Dangle has no idea who I am. I just admire from a far. He's a little young for me. I'll stop now.)

Have you seen Leafs Fan Reaction lately? You really should. No, seriously. Go now. I'll wait...

Isn't he fantastic? OK maybe I find him funnier than most other people, but I find him both smart about hockey and able to make fun of his team while still showing the love. Below are some of my favorite videos to give you a taste.

Greatest Hits
Getting Brodeur'd - Some of my favorite bits are the ones involving the player figurines. Nothing beats Brodeur. "Blocker side? More like NO GOAL SIDE!!"
Sundin's Hamlet - Just watch. Shakespeare + hockey = Win
Nuh nuh....nuh nuh nuh nuh.... - I'm biased. I love having seen the Sharks beat the Leafs twice in the last 2 seasons. But I also love watching the carnivorous Joe Thornton card.
Hockey Drive-Thru - I think it's fantastic how blurry the figurines get when they get close to the camera. And the McSorley joke is pretty good too.
Hockey Night in Canada Theme - That suit is full of win.
Ron Wilson Signs with Leafs - Gray loves this one for all the Joe Thornton figurine actions. I love his new Hockey Night in Canada theme.

I suppose he's easier to like for me cause I don't often care about the Leafs and the Sharks only face them once a year. Give the kid a chance and at least you'll have a good chance of being amused.

He probably has no idea that he has women interested in him. Some guys are just complete unaware and yet they get the attention.

OK I just have to reply to this a Habs fan, I hate to admit it, but I love this guy. Someone said he's smart, he knows his stuff and he isn't afraid to 'call out' the leafs, it's all true.I couldn't help but rate them all and I subscribed. I can't wait to see more from him. Thank you for posting about him. You really never know what you will find on the internet!

Oh he knows Shan, I emailed this post to him. ;)

Also, his eyebrows are amazing.

That's a major bummer, this guy's stuff is gold!

Not even a leafs fan and I can't get enough of him!

@Becca: He isn't entirely sure if he is done after this season. He is thinking of reducing his workload. The dude is always busy and I am surprised he ever sleeps.

Pssssst! You can friend him on Facebook.
