Yesterday on Twitter, NHLDigest posed the question, If you could have lunch with any NHL player, who would it be and why?
My initial response was the obvious. I know, sad state of affairs. Since it asks why, I'll go ahead and tell you. I'm a girl and Mike Green is wicked hot. Yeah, I said it. As I've said before, I can't get enough of his sexy tats, bedroom eyes and faux hawk. Shut up. Also, he had a record-breaking season, as he now holds the NHL record for goals scored in a season by a defenseman. In addition, I'd like to talk to him about playing the guitar - he's teaching himself. Maybe he could teach me a few things. Minds out of the gutter...
However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it would be difficult to choose just one. If this is my lunch date, why can't I choose more than one? I can, so I will.
I'd love to have lunch with Colby Armstrong, because, well, I adore him. I'd also like to have lunch with Sidney Crosby, so why not have a double lunch date with the two of them? I can't even imagine the hilarity that would ensue. I'd be willing to bet anyone any amount of money that my stomach would be hurting by the end of the afternoon from laughing at the two of them. If Colby could be serious for more than two minutes, I'd love to talk to them about hockey and growing up in Canada.
Next up: Pascal Dupuis. This lunch date is for purely girly reasons. It's no secret that I am a sucker for a man with pretty eyes. Pascal Dupuis' eyes take my breath away. Literally. There was this one time at Mellon Arena at the glass... Ok, I digress. I'm well aware that he's married with children, so I'd just stare into his pretty eyes while he talked about hockey, being Quebecois, or whatever he felt like.
Last but not least, I'd love to have lunch with Kristopher Letang. He's a favorite around here, so that should be no surprise. Not only is he all kinds of swoony, but I have a feeling he's really funny. He's the kind of guy that you'd want to start out having coffee with at about 11 AM, then head out to some place like the Point for a picnic lunch, then stroll around the streets of Shadyside engaged in conversation. I'd want to talk about hockey and him being Quebecois, but I'd also want to talk about anything he had going on in that pretty little head of his. He just seems like the sensitive type with a lot on his mind. I'm currently taking French lessons (per my tutor, I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate) and he seems like he'd have enough patience to help me perfect the language. An afternoon with Le Swooon would be lovely, for sure.
There are plenty of NHLers that I'd enjoy spending an afternoon with, but these four make the final cut. Now it's your turn. Which NHLer would you like to have lunch with and why?
