One Of These Does Not Belong

So I wasn’t able to watch the Oilers practice today. Not my fault, the Toyota Center neglected to call me and inform me this morning that they were moving the practice time from 1:30 to 2. Bah. No matter, I’ll be seeing them tomorrow at the Staples Center. Anyway, I did find something yesterday about the Oilers that made me laugh. When I thought about who I wanted to look for on the ice, I realized that I didn’t really know who was on the team anymore. I don’t even know what Dustin Penner looks like. So I went on their official website and checked out their roster. I noticed right off the bat that the roster page was formatted differently from other sites I’ve seen. It looked like a cheesy yearbook spread. The guys on the team looked like your standard All-American farm boys or something. All-Canadian? Whatever, that’s not important. As I started to scroll down, I saw that there was definitely a picture that did NOT belong with the crowd. So much so that I couldn’t look at it for too long because I couldn’t control my laughter. So instead of routing you guys to the page (even though the effect is that much more pronounced), I’m just going to post it here.

Ladies and Gents, for your viewing (or laughing) pleasure, I give you Marc Pouliot:

That look says, "Booyah! Do NOT pay attention to that hideous alien on my face. Check out my groovy hippy necklace and moosed hair"!

Wow, he IS wearing a necklace. I couldn't see beyond his...FACE.

Haha my mom and I were just looking at that and she's like there's not an ugly one on that team and then I said how about this guy...and she's like he's better in person I'm sure...

Finny said...

All of those pictures made me laugh. The Oilers are definitely a good looking team this year.

I am still just so happy that Hemsky looks like a normal human being of legal age this year :P

(You know I was just saying not too long ago after I saw some pictures of MA Pouliot that he was actually starting to grow into himself and look less well, terrible...haha. No.)

CKim said...

Do you think that Pouliot was like, "Yeah, I look HOT. Guys, post that picture of me. That's how I'm gonna get the LADIES."

I personally think Sheldon Souray is quite the good-looking fellow. Isn't he part Native American. Well, not so much the American part, but yeah...

Kirsten said...

First Nation is the term you are looking for, and yes, he's pretty hot. Even more so in person I've been told. Makes me wonder how much Courtney is really studying up there at the U of A Edmonton.
