This is a kind of weak thing to write an anchor post with, but we're a little spent after the past two weeks or so. And for some reason, this photo just struck as as being funny:
Brooks Orpik just seems like someone who doesn't enjoy anything about life. He's always got his game face on. Even during interviews, he looks like carve some sort of obscene message into someone's forehead.
But here he is holding someone's kid looking like someone told he could eat all the Double Stuf Oreos he wants.
So there you have it. Brooks Orpik's bitter cold black heart has a soft spot fo babies.
(Kudos to EN commentor Brando for spotting this on the Penguins Web site.)
