If I’m writing about Justin Bieber, one of two things has occurred:
1. It’s the slowest news day in hockey history.
2. The apocalypse is imminent.
To be fair, I’m not sure which one it is. As you may or may not know, Justin Bieber is Canadian. And apparently that means you can play hockey from birth. According to E! News, the Bakersfield Condors (farm team of the Toronto Maple Leafs) have offered Bieber an amateur tryout contract.
I can’t be the only person in the world that wants to see this happen.
Allow me to preface this by saying that I don’t know Justin Bieber personally, and I couldn’t name one of his songs. I just know that I get tired of seeing his face, and am constantly asking myself why full-grown adult women go totally nuts over an 18-year-old. That being said, wouldn’t you like to see him get completely wrecked by some guy that’s twice his size? Zdeno Chara could flick him and he would go flying.
This is a publicity stunt, no doubt. However, a two-second Youtube search produced this:

Naturally, it’s not game speed or anything, but he definitely has some moves, as proved in the shootout. He also apparently likes trying to punch Dion Phaneuf in the groin. Nice going, Biebs.
It will remain to be seen whether or not this actually materializes, but the thought of it is amusing enough to warrant a column.
