On October 23rd, 2010, a man attended the St. Louis Blues-Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game wearing a shirt that not even his own mother could love.
Luckily, this man and his magnificent shirt were captured by Getty Images and then broadcast to the world via ESPN.com.
In so doing, this man, Getty, and ESPN have joined forces to sum up what all non-hockey fans think of the NHL.

And is it just me, does the shadow on the glass have a conspicuously phallic shape? Just sayin…
Anyway, when I showed Matt here at the office, his first reaction was, “That’s photoshopped.” Well, no Matt, no it wasn’t, unless ESPN goes around photoshopping the pictures it puts alongside its game recaps. Here is the picture live on ESPN.com and Brooks nabbed a screenshot of it earlier in case the powers that be at the Worldwide Leader take it down when this man and his T-shirt go viral.
The moral of the story? The next time you attend an NHL game, ask yourself if it was worth shaving your balls. If not, come back to us in the NFL, MLB, and NBA. It’s okay. We’ll take you, shorn and all.
