Intern Desk: Back in Action

20 Jan

Hey, I’m back!  Intern Jeff Skinner reporting for duty!  No one around here seems to care, since Pants was on vacation and leaves again tomorrow for her honeymoon.  Supposedly she doesn’t know where they’re going.  Pretend to act surprised when it’s Pittsburgh.

Come here often?

At least then she can’t keep telling me I should have closed my mouth in the NHL Tonight commercial where I’m pretending to ride the bike.  (She’s watched that far once, by the way – too busy rewinding Stamkos and his cereal.)

I made my comeback at Washington, but Pants wasn’t there.  Then we played the Penguins, where I took a pretty big hit from Crazy Eyes Orpik and had to go to the quiet room.  She didn’t even call!  I know she was watching!  (Editor’s note: She wasn’t.)

Hmmpphh.  James Neal had the game winning shootout goal and was First Star, I bet she called him.

Really? This guy?

We’re still not winning much and I know Pants finds it hard to watch, because she really does like us.  We beat the Bruins, but I promised Chuck and Cassy I wouldn’t mention it in exchange for extra Mexicolas.  We are also tied with the Lightning at 40 points.  I’m hoping that my return can brighten things up around here and offer some consistency.  When we win, we score a lot (13 goals in last 3 wins.)  It’s not too late to get this season back on track.

Want me to sign your yearbook?

    JEFFY! We’ve missed you! It’s been so sad around the offices without your boyish charm and smiling face. Also, our water cooler is empty. I’m thirsty. Would ya mind taking care of that? Great. You’re a peach.

    Really, James Neal? WTF is up with your hair? You don’t make it like that on purpose…do you?

      He knows it drives Pants crazy.

      Missed you Jeffy! Does this mean I can throw the Welcome Back party now? I already bought the piñata.

    Jeffy, you’re such a dreamboat! But enough about you – let’s talk about the NHL Tonight commercial. Just further evidence the NHL is out to kill us all by rounding up the league’s hotties into one snappy 30-second commercial. (With the one mistake inclusion being Ovechkin, of course.)

      Four words for you.

        Wait, Skinner’s in the NHL Tonight commercials? And Toews and Kane and Britney and Hank? I think you’re watching a different one. Mine just has Stamkos eating breakfast on a loop.
