2006 Turin Winter Olympics
Men's hockey: Sedin's &#%#^ bomb

Earlier, when I saw Vancouver Canucks Op Ed post this...

“We always play to win games,” forward Daniel Sedin said. “If you play for Sweden, you want to win games. It doesn’t matter what you’re playing for.”

Sedin then muttered an expletive, and walked away from reporters.

...I had thought it was a joke. Because, well, I had read that wire story online hours earlier in the way we all read wire stories on TSN — with one hand suppressing a yawn — and thought nothing of what was there. Obviously, I'd skipped over the offending bits.

Now, a player dropping an F-bomb (or other similar such word) in the locker room and around reporters isn't exactly newsworthy. But when it's Daniel Sedin... stop the presses.

Heh, Swedish players, in general, have a reputation for being mild-mannered and the Sedins are the mildest of the bunch. Generally, the rule goes, if you're looking for a postgame quote from the Canucks, head elsewhere lest you be looking to bulk up the 'snorefest' section of your article (which, let's face it, many reporters are).

Now, if Danny boy (pictured at right looking about as scary as a Pop-Tart) is going to be tossing around the 'bombs', well, him and his equally odd brother will start to get some more pub.

This is turning into a pretty 'bad-ass' season for the Sedins.

Now I have a picture in my head of Daniel Sedin going Wayne Brady with brother Henrik playing the role of Dave Chappelle.
