The Hanson Brothers in 2009

So I think it's safe to say everyone's favorite [raunchy] hockey movie is Slap Shot, cause frankly, the Hanson's would've wiped the ice of Team Iceland before it ever got to a shootout. Well, I got the opportunity to party with them on Friday night. And yes, we partied.

Now I must say, when you're at a bar, half the TV's playing the Wings - Ducks, the other half playing Slap Shot, you know you're at the right place. I was at the right place. The place was filled with old Hershey Bears; Mitch Lamoureux, Bob Wilkie to name a few, not to mention of course the Hanson Brothers.

Well of course I had to go introduce myself to the 3, and here's the proof.

How does a guy break the ice when he wants to talk to the Hansons? Well obviously one has to build up the liquid courage and go up to Dave Hanson (right), opening with "Congratulations to your son, it's awesome he's living the dream. But hey, the Maple Leafs suck." True story, you can't make that shit up.

Anyways, all I can say is that they are all extremely nice guys, were totally gracious and willing to chat about anything. All Dave had to say about the Leafs was "look for some big changes." I think that's what he said. If you ever have the opportunity to meet them, how can you pass it up? You can't.
