Don’t worry, I’m a hockey player

So you’re walking down the street in Philadelphia. Minding your own business. Your thoughts wander… the Ottawa Senator’s current funk, who is going to play nets for Team Canada in the Olympics, why a latte at Starbucks costs more than oil, why soccer is more violent than hockey

… When all of a sudden, you see this big guy, carrying his Starbucks coffee, step off the curb and get plowed by this big SUV. Big smashing sound, body goes flying. He bounces off the hood, falls to the pavement and all goes quiet. You’re thinking, “Holy crap!” All these people coming running to see if he is ok.

He gets up. Fires off a few swear words, brushes himself off and says:

Classy words of Brendan Witt: "I'm OK. I'm a hockey player."

Classy words of Brendan Witt: "I'm OK. I'm a hockey player."

“I’ve got to go play some hockey. I’m a hockey player. I’m OK. No big deal.”

“I’ve got to go play some hockey. I’m a hockey player. I’m OK. No big deal.”
- Brenden Witt, New York Islanders defenseman

You’re thinking “Are you freakin’ kidding me?!? Who was that guy?!?!” None other than New York Islanders defenseman Brendan Witt. A Canadian no less. Witt wasn’t kidding either. He was in the lineup for the New York Islanders in their 6-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

So in the latest dust up, that being a 5000 pound truck vs. hockey player with a latte, we’ll call it a draw. Whoever thinks hockey players aren’t tough have probably never met a hockey player.

SUV
Height: 6′ 4″
Weight: 5,262 pounds
Fuel: Regular Unleaded

Witt
Height: 6′ 2″
Weight: 219 pounds
Fuel: Starbucks Latte

Maybe Brian Burke could use some of that truc(k)ulence in the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup.

Stay classy, Brendan Witt. Hilarious and amazing all at once.
