Orpik - Like You've NEVER Seen Him!!

I am really beginning to like Brooks Orpik more and more everyday!! I've always felt he was an awesome defenseman (FREE CANDY, anyone?!), but the more I read about him, the more appealing he becomes as a human being ... he seems to be a really great, genuine guy!!! I especially like the fact that he says exactly what's on his mind (FSN has said that on more than one occasion).

The latest article I read was the one in Maniac Magazine (the one I did a post on yesterday with Talbot). Well, thanks to Sunshine36616, I was finally able to see Orpik's article and if you haven't read it, YOU SHOULD - good stuff!! My favorite part is this quote:

AND this (ALL HP's have to have large butts - it's just the nature of the beast ... just think about how they work those muscles on the ice to skate, eh!) ...

Luckily, I was able to screen-cap some pics too (he DOES have a fun side!)!!!

"Coax a bull shark into a fishbowl"

Holy crap, that's the best quote I've ever read. Creates a very nice mental image.

I think I like this other side of Brooks!

Yeah...there wasn't much NOT to love about that article. :-)

And that's where I'll leave it.

Yay! Glad to help. Candace actually showed me how to see the article. I was losing my mind! MUST SEE BROOKSIE!
I don't like the sunglasses, I need to see his beautiful crazy-ass eyes.

Gah, thought I had recovered after yesterday, and then this...now I must take to the couch! Beautiful!

I have a Brooks story - my kids and I went to the US men's hockey orientation camp in IL this past summer to see all the NHLers. My boys were wearing Pens stuff on the 2nd day and Brooks walked right over to them and started chatting...and he signed their stuff. They were so happy. We are big Brooks fans - we call him the Beast.

Orpik looks good when he's not looking homicidal! :-D

It took me a little while to adjust to hockey butts when I first started watching. I really like them lots now.

HOLY SHIT!!! *Falls on floor* If somebody could just go ahead and dump a bucket of ice water on my head and administer the chest paddles for me...that'd be great. Thanks.
