If I were a hockey player...
I think I'm absolutely the last one to hop on this meme bandwagon, one started by Jes Golbez about two weeks back, but here goes:
Team: Vancouver Canucks
Uniform Number: 2
Nickname: Mailbox Jamal
Dream Linemate: Bobby Orr
Rounding out the PP: Bones Jackson, Mark Recchi and Cousin BJ (for in front of the net)
Signature Move: Hack, whack and slash
Strengths: Prodigious reach, checking
Weaknesses: Enforcer-like puckhandling
Injury Problems? Multiple shot-blocking wounds
Equipment: Well-worn Tacks, Winnwell gloves, Ferland shin pads, Oilers socks, Louisville pants, Nike elbow pads, a Bauer bucket and, heck, this picture's so old I've even got a neck guard on.
Caught betting on Rick Tocchet's indictment date
Who I'd face in the Stanley Cup Finals:
Toronto Maple Leafs
What I'd do with the Stanley Cup after our victory:
Toss it in Mario Lemieux's pool
Would the media love me or hate me?
I can't hate myself, now can I?
A look at other submissions: Eric McErlain, Jamie Fitzpatrick, On the Wings, Mike Chen, Japers' Rink, Islanders Army, Paul Kukla and Behind the Jersey. (Others are welcome to add their own in the comments.)
