Stop Asking Henrik Lundqvist Frivolous Questions
The other day the New York Rangers twitter folks did a Twitter Tuesday question and answer thingy with All-Star goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Basically, you tweet a question to the @thenyrangers account with the hashtag #askhank and Henrik makes a video responding to your question. Simple enough, right?
Nope. People had to go ask outdated questions about nothing. Good job, people! As you can see in the photo above, someone asked Hank his favorite Blink 182 song. Yep, that Blink 182. It doesn't really matter if he listens to Blink 182 before games or whatever the hell he does concerning Blink 182 because, seriously, that's the best question you have?
Anyway, I have no idea what he responded because the accompanying video was deleted for reasons undetermined. Oh well. Let's all just assume it was some popular song like All the Small Things (because he's a pro athlete...what else would it be?), or something obscure to show his zany hipster side. Really, who cares. Let this be a lesson that you should never rely on people to do anything. That's exactly what this teaches us.
And that's the point, because, in contrast, the Sprint Center's official twitter account (@sprintcenter) went out of its way to ask Hank – the guy who will probably-maybe-hopefully-okay-definitely-not be playing an exhibition game in this city in October, and coming here for the first time in his life – if he has ever had world famous KC style barbecue. Alas, Hank and the Rangers shrugged off this pressing question for some crap about a '90s punk rock band – who is fine in their own right, don't get me wrong. Good show, Rangers. That's strike one. First to three loses out on my affection for that one cool night in October (psst...that's supposed to make you sad and beg for my forgiveness because you wouldn't like the Internet when it's angry...).
