Last week, Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom celebrated his 25th birthday in Russia. To mark the day, Dynamo Moscow fans gave him a birthday cake in the shape of a hockey jersey. The club published this video of an adoring Russian throng singing “Happy Birthday” to him. It’s cute, but Backstrom chanting “Dy-Na-Mo” along with them at the end is enough to break your hockey heart.
It’s like seeing your ex-girlfriend date someone else. You think you’re just on a break or something, but here she is getting serious with someone else. Now they’re holding hands and exchanging stupid looks and omigod now they have a dog? What’shegotthatidon’thavedammit. Ughhhh. This sucks. Give him back give him back. We saw him first.
