Shoutout to my man, Dan Cleary.
On Monday night, during an in-game interview — a truly awful format — the Detroit Red Wings’ forward tried to assess his team’s shortcomings (in the particular game) as well as coach Mike Babcock’s efforts to turn them around in between periods.
Cleary, however, did little to provide intelligent analysis or strategy.
Instead, he gave viewers — and now readers — one of the most hilarious and priceless quotes to date (get some!).
“We were flat, they came in, out-worked us, out-chanced us, and we got a bit of a tongue-licking in between the periods.”
I’m no Chomsky, but I’m pretty sure good ol’ Danny boy meant tongue-lashing.
Then again, you can never bee too sure of a guy who’s notorious for quoting both Google and Wikipedia.
