Former RMNB member, Kyle Mace has his very own Hershey blog called Chocolate Hockey and he’s doing big things. A few weeks ago, Mace published a video of himself playing Hershey Bears forward Chris Bourque at NHL94.
On Wednesday, the same day Jakub Vrana received his first NHL call up, Mace published another video game feature, but this time it featured Vrana and fellow Czech Vitek Vanecek. It was chaos.
The trio navigated (poorly) the FIFA17 FUT Draft. “It look like we have the best team ever,” Vrana said with confidence, before taking on an online player.
The game would end with Vrana threatening to break the TV with his controller.
There is so much to dissect here, but first we need to stop for a minute and thank Kyle for continuing to help Vanecek learn English. Not only is this good content, Mace is also performing a service for the organization – so thank you for that.
My favorite part of the video is when Kyle tries to help the Czechs put together the best team possible.
“We good to go, man, 85,” Vrana said after the team drafted Ronaldo. “We’re going to crush the other guy.”
“The only thing is that his chemistry is a 2 so it means he’s not going to have any chemistry with anybody,” Mace said, urging Vrana to reconsider.
“Yeah, but he’s Ronaldo, man,” Vrana said. He then made the sassiest of sassy faces.
Ronaldo stayed in.
During the actual game, the Czechs fell behind early. Like the NHL regulars they will someday grow to be, the Czechs made no excuses.
“Bad goalie,” hockey goaltender Vitek Vanecek said after a goal.
“Bad referee,” Vanecek said after his digi player committed a hand ball.
After another goal, Vrana slapped his thighs three times consecutively, screaming, “VAD! VAD! VAD!”
The Czechs eventually fell behind 4-1. Vrana’s blood boiled.
“You like the TV?” Vrana asked before faking as if he were going to chuck his controller.
At the end of the game with a win out of reach, Vanecek had one last goal.
“KILL HIM,” Vanecek yelled, attempting to slide tackle the living bejesus out of his online competitor.
