Hockey Players Are Big Bullies

Poor Stephen Gionta. All the other guys keep being dicks.

#11 here is Stephen Gionta, a hockey player for the New Jersey Devils. Gionta looks pretty small here, doesn’t he? And he is — at 5’7”, he’s pretty small for a professional athlete. This is relevant.

Saturday afternoon, Gionta’s Devils were playing the Florida Panthers. Gionta took an absolute shot from a Panthers player, and, because he’s tiny, ended up buried in the Panthers’ bench.

Let’s take a closer look. This involves both injury and insult. I’m not sure which came first. It’s the chicken-and-egg of hockey.

So, as you might expect, Gionta tries to climb out of the Panthers’ bench. Like a dick, the Panthers’ T.J. Brennan decided to speed his departure along. WHAT A BULLY.

If you don’t think this isn’t on some sixth-grade shit, then I don’t know what to tell you. Brennan is paid to be a hockey player. He was paid large sums of money to do this.

It makes more sense, though, when you can track Brennan’s development throughout his life. Brennan as a baby:

He was a weird-looking baby.

And Brennan as a…woman:

Once a bully, always a bully.
