If you have every put on skates and played in a hockey game you know exactly what I’m talking about. I must check my skate blades 2-3 times before getting on the ice because no body wants to be the guy who goes full Bambi legs and takes a tumble.
Now, as you get older, you have to worry about pranks so I am normally looking for clear tape as I thought I had graduated from worrying about skate guards. Clearly, I’m wrong. If this can happen to an NHL defenseman, then it can happen to anybody. It’s skate guard SZN people, please be careful.
Also, love how Joel handled this. Big smile, a “Oh fuckkkk me” and gets right back after it. I’m sure the boys in Carolina won’t let him live it down for a while but its all in good fun. HOCKEY IS BACK LETS GO.
