Shawn Thornton for President

11 Jan

Not of the US or Canada.  But for the United Nations of Bad Ass Mutha F——

I said, "No. New. Taxes."

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.

Ain't no thang, but a chicken wing.

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.

FREE HUGS!!

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?

    Timmy’s face! His face! And yes, Thornton does look very campaign-ready in that last photo.

      Timmeh is soooo heppy. He loves his friend Shawn.

      The sport coat is killing me in that photo. What is that…velvet?

      Also, he looks like he’s about ready to burst out of that jacket like the Hulk.

    I love Thorty!!!! He is actually a friend of mine. I know him from his playing days in the AHL in Norfolk. He was a fan favorite back then too! Glad to see he had a good game against the Jets! Can’t wait to see him when The B’s come to Carolina on Saturday!!

      Thorty is the best. He’s like the perfect player for the Bruins and the city of Boston.

      Mainly because he looks like he should be hanging in South Boston wearing a skally cap and a track suit, hanging with the Irish Mob.

    Would that be one Mark Stuart, formerly of the Bruins? Who I met and could NOT stand?!

    Oh my stars, I find that tres amusing!

    Timmeh hugs yay! You know Thorty went right there first!

    And my Charlestown-based big brother (and who lives a couple streets away) informs us that, yes, they love Thorty and he loves them!

    Yes, I’m a fair weather fan (old die hart fan) I’m jumping on board now because of a team made up of players like Shawn T, I got my “B” sweat shirt, and a hat. Now I’m checking the schedule for the next game
