Hockey Hilarity: Sergei SpongeBob Bobrovsky is really good

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!

So, what’s funny this week in hockey is that the Philadelphia Flyers really stink and that their goaltending, aside  from the first couple of months from Ilya Bryzgalov has been pretty meh. Anyway, there was this kid, once upon a time, that they picked up. He was an unsigned youngster and he got thrown into the fire and had a pretty good year up until the playoffs. His name was Sergei Bobrovsky.

Bob, as some fans adoringly called him, was pretty good in the Orange and Black, but was traded this past offseason for a second round pick that turned out to be a goalie in Anthony Stolarz, to the Columbus Blue Jackets. What is absolutely hilarious about this is that Bob is top five in three of the four important categories concerning goaltenders in the NHL.

He even has three freakin’ shutouts! Crazy! Anyway, I found it funny that the Flyers stink and he’s doing well in Columbus, you know, aside from getting wins.

Come back next week where we’ll do something else.
