The 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs begin on Tuesday, and it is the busiest time of years for hockey reporters. Anyone who has ever watched TSN understands that Darren Dreger, Bob McKenzie, Aaron Ward and James Duthie take their jobs very seriously, but there are always times to enjoy the lighter side of life. Each reporter took the opportunity to do this, and the following spoof from the hit film The Hangover is an epic win.
Anyone who has seen the movie understands the premise when the insiders appear on a beach, but what follows is full of amazing moments and cameos. This spoof features members from the Los Angeles Kings, it includes references to New York Rangers bench boss John Tortorella and has many other moments that will induce gut-busting laughter.
Lines like Luongo hasn't been traded yet, maybe we can get Torts (John Tortorella) back and much more make this spoof comedic gold.
The cameos, featuring players like Dustin Penner, are well-placed and flow very well during this comedic bit. The spoof lasts only six minutes, but you will be drawn to watch it multiple times. After watching this video, you will have a new appreciation for TSN's hockey insiders, and you may not be able to take them serious for a few weeks. The NHL playoffs are usually a tense time of year, so do yourself a favor by watching this clip and having an amazing laugh.
Fans may have thought "Dreger Face" would be one of the funniest moments including one of the NHL's top insiders, but his performance in this spoof takes the cake.
