Hobo realizes dream of playing for San Jose Sharks … oh wait, it’s Brent Burns (pic)


Fantastic. There really isn’t anything to add to this delightfully brilliant photograph of San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns other than, yes, that is indeed a photo of a real-life, actual NHL player conducting an on-ice interview … looking like some kind of disheveled, unkempt and scuzzy tramp.

Oh, one thing: This isn’t the first time Burns has more resembled a man who sleeps beneath a freeway underpass as opposed to one who earns millions of dollars playing professional hockey. To wit:

Don’t ever change, Brent Burns. Shine on, you crazy diamond, and keep letting your freak flag fly … although a haircut, a shave and perhaps a visit to the dentist wouldn’t hurt from time to time.
