So we had a one-day tournament today in Oakville that I couldn't attend, but my brother snapped this pic of some bums who don't have jobs right now, playing on one of the adjacent pads to them:
In the pic are Carlo Colaiacovo, Brad Boyes, Shawn Matthias and...you guessed it, the pride of Oakville himself, Steve Mason. Tom Kostopoulos and Johnny Mitchell were also out there today.
My brother said they were pretty rattled to find out the place was being used for a tournament, because they've purposely been trying to avoid publicity as to not drop a regrettable soundbite...although [redacted because a) it's important to remember that despite their proportional irrelevance to the league's superstars, their opinions might create a Canadian media firestorm, and b) it is inappropriate to use hyperbole in a comical setting itt; this lockout, much like the internet in general, is serious business
Highlight of the day: apparently one of my brother's teammates kinda halfheartedly chirped Mason and asked him if he wanted to play in net for us to help him regain his confidence. After a couple of menacing glares, he quickly stfu and removed himself from the area.
