For me, perhaps the most memorable moment from the NHL's All-Star weekend was the breakaway challenge in Saturday's skills night. Patrick Kane was exciting with his Superman act and Corey Perry busting out the mini goalie stick to score was good fun.
But the best part of it all was Carey Price, the Canadiens goalie who was in one net. He spun in circles, he made a save playing with his back to the shooter. He even just Tebowed for one attempt. It was a show-stealing performance, at least for me.
The question now is: Was that the best Tebow at a hockey all-star event this weekend?
With much less fanfare, the AHL held their all-star battle in Atlantic City, N.J. on Monday (not technically the weekend, but play along). Of course the event featured a mascot game. Any all-star game worth its weight in salt will have an mascot game.
And it produced the best en masse Tebowing these eyes have ever seen. Yes, better than those high school kids who were punished.
In the middle of their game a turnover led to a breakaway the other direction. Seeing that they're mascots and all, he was clotheslined. The led to the following penalty shot.
Everybody, even the goalie and mascot referee get in on the act. I don't know, maybe we should consult the Guiness Book of World Records for the biggest collective Tebow on this one. Plus, their moves were held a lot longer than Jack Johnson's in-game Tebowing earlier this season.
