Last night before the Capitals took on the New York Rangers, Caps Swedes Marcus Johansson and Andre Burakovsky tried to get loose by throwing around a football in the bowels of Madison Square Garden. Johansson showed off a tight spiral.
Then Burakovsky threw.
What in the hell was that?
The Burracuda, like Joe Montana, points confidently towards a figurative end zone as if he were telling Johansson to go deep. He then unleashes a wobbling duck that falls well short of his target and almost takes out the cameraman. It’s adorable.
It also reminds me of another famous throwing incident that happened in New York.
I don’t want to dissuade Burakovsky from a future career in football, but I’m here to dissuade Burakovsky from a future career in football. He makes Uncle Rico look like Tom Brady.
Let’s say Kirk Cousins leaves in the offseason and the Redskins, to fill their dramatic quarterback need, sign the two-sport star Burakovsky. Redskins fans in the first few rows of FedEx Field should probably dress in full body armor. Because who knows where the ball will go?
Never change, Andre. I have not laughed this hard since this and bless you for that.
