Shoulda Been You, Big Ern: Here’s Ryan Miller As Carl Spackler For ESPN The Mag

Yesterday, the Sportress thrilled you with a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot of when Lindsay Vonn vamped it up as Sharon Stone’s character from Basic Instinct. Today, while not as sexy – at least for must of us – comes Buffalo Sabres netminder Ryan Miller doing his best Carl Spackler from Caddyshack impression. While he does pretty well and all, if the editors of ESPN The Magazine were committed to doing a re-creation of a character portrayed by Bill Murray, why not Ernie McCracken? That would have been kick ass, with the wild and crazy hair and all. Or better yet, how about Jack Corcoran from Larger than Life, one of Murray’s more underrated films? Yeah, that would have been awesome. Except for having to hire an elephant. They can be finicky bastards. And damn expensive, too.
