Speaking of Twitter…
Brad Marchand had a very chatty post-skate scrum with the media in Toronto. Nothing noteworthy, the closest part of the conversation that could be bulletin-board material was saying how Mitch Marner chirps in about the most 12-year-old-boy way. However, Jacob Stoller of The Hockey News asked him about a tweet replying to Craig Morgan about the Stecher/Zegras affair telling Morgan to “shut his pie hole lol”. Marchand said it was just the first thing that popped into his head at the moment. When tweeting about it, Stoller called it “weird”. Marchand clapped back:
For some reason, Steve Glynn, aka Steve Dangle, thought it was an appropriate time to interrupt the adults talking:
Well, Steve, it’s too bad you had a book tour that included some…questionable…photos:
I’ll level with people here: when Steve sticks to his shtick, I like him. When he has no pretence about exactly who he is, it’s fun. But he’s starting to think of himself as someone on some kind of equal footing as the likes of Friedman, Dreger, etc. And Sportsnet has done him no favours, giving him a stream of the Leafs game they broadcast every Saturday, along with every playoff game the Leafs are in. So on the one hand, Brad should probably not get into Twitter fights with YouTube creators. On the other hand, would this dude even begin to have the stones to say that in a media scrum?
