Hockey Hilarity: JvR Is A Grammar Nazi

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!

One of our favorite fellow writers and hockey tourney fundraiser fixtures, Dustin Leed, was tweeting (follow him at @D_Leed if you don’t already) this week about his distaste for the Los Angeles Kings and the overall, how can I put this delicately, ridiculously arrogant air that surrounds the organization:


Which is true. I mean you really can’t argue this when their twitter account (@LAKings) has been funny, but real pompous with tweets like this one after the Kings eliminated the Vancouver Canucks last year:


So with that, Dustin proceeded to clarify he wasn’t talking about the players:

Dustin used the wrong instance of their/they’re/there which happens, I mean we’re all only human after all… But then former-Philadelphia-Flyer-now-Toronto-Maple-Leaf James van Riemsdyk (@JVReemer21) added his two sense:


And from there it became hilarious:




But at least he had a good sense of humor about it:


So what’s the lesson here? It’s that hockey people are funnier than all other sports people, plain and simple. So come back next week so we can all laugh again together at something else funny and hockey related.

Side Note: please follow both Dustin and Todd Cordell (@ToddCordell) from as they’re both phenomenal people.
