Brandon Dubinsky, forward, New York Rangers
That sound you hear is an HBO producer masturbating feverishly in a darkened editing room somewhere (at what you are about to read, not the above picture. we think).
Earlier today, when it was announced that Chris Pronger will undergo knee surgery, there was no doubt that the folks over at HBO made a sad, since said (triple-letter score on those Ss) announcement will mean much less Pronger during 24/7 taping, which begins in full on December 4.
Well, cheer up, you hipster Hollywood types, you– Brandon Dubinsky just landed jabs to the misshapen jaws of Jody Shelley and Zac Rinaldo.
In response to Shelley calling him a “weasel” on HBO’s 24/7 preview, Dubinsky responded thusly: [NY Daily News via SNY Rangers Blog]
“First of all, if I was him, I’d keep my mouth shut if I don’t play, especially since I never see him on the ice… He’s usually just yapping from the bench, and I guess now he’s yapping from behind the video camera. So that’s about all I have to say.
Jody Shelley — it won’t be long before he’s out of the league, because he’s a terrible hockey player.”
And on Rinaldo, who took a run at Sean Avery on Saturday…
“I think he’s an idiot… And I think that, I mean, he’s not really a good hockey player. So if that’s what he tries to do to get under our skin, I don’t think it works very well. He’s not very effective at it. I think they should just keep putting him on the ice, because he’s a liability against us.”
Gulp. Daddy just hit mommy, and it’s about to get real ugly in here.
To be fair, Brandon (btw– you look a lot like Pete Campbell from Mad Men), we must point out that Shelley is currently enrolled at the Jagr Hockey School, so he is trying. And while he may not be very good at the sport, both he and Rinaldo can fight like motherfuckers, so…
… yeah, you get it.
Now, we’ll let that HBO producer get back to his business.
Fap… Fap… Fap
