Flashback Friday

Every Friday we will be adding one of our favourite hockey videos from over the years. Some might be painful, some might be just plain dirty, but they all have a story behind them that make them downright awesome and great to watch over and over again.
Phil Kessel on a luggage cart makes for awkwardness
Phil Kessel made headlines earlier this week for his comments made on the disconnect he and coach Ron Wilson have. When the shy, introverted Kessel said "maybe it's just not working out here" - alarm bells went off. Had Kessel not been so awkward, he might have avoided the criticism that came with his comments when people thought he wanted out of Toronto. Taken out of context, it looks bad. What he meant was the line he was on was not working out - it just didn't come out that way.

Even Tyler Bozak laughs when Kessel gets interviewed because of his awkwardness, but at least Kessel isn't afraid to fly. The attention Kessel receives is unwanted, such as being picked last in the All Star Draft (having James Duthie call him down after he sits down is hard to watch) and having Alex Ovechkin take a picture of him on national television. However one of my favourite Phil Kessel awkward moments is from the 2007 NHL Road Trip commercial.


All he says is "Go! Go! Go!" but it makes me laugh everytime. He's also pretty funny in this behind the scenes video for the commercial. When they put a hole in the wall for the 2nd time and he speaks, its gold.

What's your favourite thing about this commercial?

  1. Your "wanted" handouts are unoriginal and distasteful. Seriously, I've seen this so many times and every time it was funny. Yours, however, is garbage.

  2. Now, you guys had the bright idea of releasing the poster a second time. I thought you'd be embaressed enough the first time not to do it again.

  3. Could you have at least tried to not make the wanted poster so straight forward. Your pathetic attempt at humour "maybe suffering from shyness and lack of confidence". Is that all you could come up with? LAME!

  4. I thought they were kind of funny. Kessel is not scoring goals, I guess fans should let him off easy? Bozak has escaped criticism as well because Kessel has taken all of the heat. These Leaf forwards need to step it up. Can't have all of the offence coming from MacArthur - Grabovski - Kulemin

  7. Those posters are simply amazing and no matter how many times it is done it will always be funny. Case and point there will always be someone on the leafs to make a poster about due to their lack of effort or being the blunt of a stupid trade that sees the leafs lose and another team prosper. Go Flyers

  8. awesome posters, i think mrs. kessel is just upset her son got made fun off. probably reminds her of the days her son got made fun of in the school yard and got picked last in gym class. wait he still gets picked last. just remember it might be a pathetic attempt at humour, but if people laugh its also successful
