Swedish Summertime

12 Aug

If you’d like to spend your Friday watching Nicky B, you’re in luck.  Bonus if you speak Swedish or mumbling.  He has such nice eyes.

Interview Video 1 and Video 2.  Fair warning: There isn’t any smiling, as he obviously misses Mike.  It makes me wanna:

Our pal @raedanda found this on Twitter – MUCH better.  Someone tell me how this thing stays afloat as Nicky demonstrates the appropriate length and plaid in this season’s Swedish swim trunks.

    My Swedish friend watched those videos, apparently Nicky is talking about the playoffs and how he needs to play better and no excuses etc no wonder why he isn’t smiling. She translated a similar recent interview of him if you are looking for a Nicky fix:
