When I was twenty, I was a college senior. A few months from getting my Visual Arts degree from UMBC, I had a 1998 Toyota Camry, and I got paid $7.50 an hour to work for the school’s newspaper.
At twenty-years-old Cody Eakin is in the NHL. He plays on the league’s best team. With his entry-level contract, he makes almost $1 million a year. And tonight, November 4th, 2011, he notched his first NHL point and his first NHL goal against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Someone should knock him down a peg.
Alex Ovechkin, immediately after tonight’s 5-1 victory, did exactly that.
As Eakin was finishing his final remarks with the media, the Capitals captain found an opening and caught the young rookie in the face with a blue shaving cream pie. Awesome.
