Not of the US or Canada. But for the United Nations of Bad Ass Mutha F——
Last night, Boston Bruin (and Foxy Friday honoree) Shawn Thornton had one hell of a game vs. the Winnipeg Jets.
Not only did he beat up on the Jets’ Mark Stuart like he stole his lunch money, but he also scored this BEAUTY of a shorthanded goal…and on a penalty shot, no less. Watch it [here].
Did I mention this guy is a 4th line grinder? 4th LINE! Sick mitts, ya’ll.
That goal came on Thorty’s FIRST ever attempt at a penalty shot in his career. He put the extra spicy sauce on that thing.
Even Timmeh loves it.
In the locker room after the Bruins’ 5-3 win, he was joking with reporters that that is a move that he’s been practicing with Tuukka Rask during practice for a while. [Video]
Well, Mr. Thornton. Looks like all that practice paid off.
Without a doubt, ST22 is one of the most affable and popular players on the Bruins. The fans and the city love him and I think that he loves them right back.
And isn’t that what you want in your President?
