Hockey Hilarity: Burke Family Fun

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!

Most hockey people like Brian Burke. He’s always been a pretty interesting character who speaks from the heart and makes no bones about the way he likes to run his teams. In September, Burke was hired by the Calgary Flames as the head of hockey operations and began a review process that led to yesterday’s events in which he fired both the general manager of the team, Jay Feaster, and the assistant general manager, John Weisbrod. It’s a wonder that either of those guys held their positions as long as they did honestly, and good on Burke for taking some time to look things over and not just pulling the trigger immediately…

However, it looks like Burke hasn’t had so much as five minutes to go and get a haircut, which led to yesterday’s absolutely gut-splitting hilarity on the Internet coming from who else but Brian Burke’s own children.

This picture was tweeted out with the most appropriate caption by @HockeyGods:

Every now and again the Hockey Gods are kind to us, so be kind to them and throw them a follow for some fun and silliness every now and again.

Until next time, make sure you go to the barber shop and get a haircut you slobs.
