Bieksa is up to his interview pranks again… but this one is so artfully done. An LA reporter went up to “Ryan Kesler” and asked him for a post game interview. Bieksa could have corrected the reporter and sent him in Kesler’s direction, but what would be the fun in that?
I wish this was video not just audio. I wish I could see the over animated reporter’s face while Bieksa totally keeps his shit together and plays it seriously. I wish I could see his face when he tells the reporter his nickname is “Guzzler”… and then the reporter calls him “Guzzler”.
The Province’s own Jason Botchford tracked down Bieksa to ask him about the prank and find out why he did it. (Seriously, these are real quotes.)
“That guy’s an idiot. It’s his own fault if he can’t tell the difference between an all star center and a plug defenceman” explained Kevin Bieksa. “He shouldn’t even be allowed in the room.” Bieksa didn’t stop there, as he continued to rip on Dunsmore “He doesn’t know who Ryan Kesler is. Ryan Kesler won a silver medal for them. I did a full 10 maybe 15 minute interview with him, I was telling how I grew up in Livonia”
Because of a friend’s date and his childish huffiness, guess which lucky Canucks fan got to go to (2/3 of) a sweet game last night? Full A-team on the ice (Burr, Juice, Sammy, Ginger Pubes, Bobby Lu and of course, my babyboy Kessy the sessy), just 10 rows from the front, and a decisive 5 - 1 home team victory!
Rip pro-tip: at the gate, just tell them your kids did it and nobody bats an eyelash.
