Hey, I only now just bothered to read the article, but here’s the quote that got me thinking:
“You’re splitting hairs if you pick one between Dom, Roy and Brodeur because they all had different styles,” said Yzerman, a team executive and Hasek’s former teammate. “It’s like comparing Mercedes, Ferrari to Porsche.”
I know the americans aren’t that big on cars (seeing as you can stand the sight of Dodge’s and Ford’s), but in Europe there’s a pretty clear difference between Mercs, Ferrari’s and Porsche’s!
First of all, you don’t drive a Merc unless you’re a 70 year old, white pimp with ho’s in da trunk.
Porsche’s are VW Beatles that outgrew their own skin.
Lastly, Ferrari’s are pedigree’s. These cars are made by the best car company in the world, and therefor dominate wherever they go. They do make everyone flip you the bird on the road, but jealousy makes people irrational!
When you drive a ferrari you are allowed to be arrogant!
But don’t take my word for it. I’m just sitting here in my mum’s basement wearing nothing but boxers and a T-shirt. Listen to Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear (http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/).
Now I want to be picky on the way Yzerman called out the respective names:
“Dom, Roy and Brodeur” &
“Mercedes, Ferrari to Porsche”
Dare I imply Dom=Merc, Roy=Ferrari and Brodeur=Porsche?
I know the first 2 are accurate, but can anyone help me on Brodeur’s background?
After this pro-Italy speech I feel I should point out I’m not actually Italian, I am dutch.
AND WE JUST KICKED THEIR ASSES 3-0!!!! SUCK IT, ITALIAN BEATCHES!!!
