The Los Angeles Kings sure love using adult language after winning the Stanley Cup by taking out the New Jersey Devils. They held a parade and rally on Thursday and star goaltender Jonathan Quick decided that he needed to spice the celebration up with some F bombs.
“How about this ******* team right here? Look at this ******* team….Look at these ******* guys.”
Yeah, I am sure the parents of young people watching at home were not thrilled about the language used by Jonathan Quick. However, if there was a sport that you would tie this language into, it would be hockey. It’s a blue collar sport, plain and simple. That doesn’t mean you should go saying this stuff on TV, but it is easy to understand where it comes from.
I am actually more concerned about the way Jonathan Quick is dressed. I get the hockey sweater, but I think he would have been better off with pants. The sweater plus shorts is just a really odd combination. It makes him look extremely top heavy and I bet a lot of people got a kick out of it. I know that I sure did.
I guess this is probably no big deal, but it is pretty funny. The Kings are happy to have the cup and they just want to express it in any way possible. We can’t fault them for that. Then again, if it was a player like LeBron James, I think we would have a public debate on whether or not to deport him.
