The 5 Funniest Hockey Tweets of the Week: Worst Jersey Ever Edition

New, 107 comments

Collecting the top attempts at hockey humor on Twitter for the week ending 9/8/13.

A thrilling redesign.
A thrilling redesign.

There were two big stories in the funny hockey Twitterverse this week: Corey Crawford's new contract and the Buffalo Sabres' new jersey. Both were ugly, ill-conceived disasters, and both provided plenty of Comedy Juice to get the tweets flowing.



Do you guys remember like two years ago when we all thought GMs had figured out that it doesn't make sense to spend big money on goalies? What the hell happened with that?


This tweet was my inspiration for the jersey re-imagining I did in the header image up there.


Steve Buscemi is probably almost as good of a hockey player as Ryan Whitney at this point.


This all by itself is a hilarious tweet, but because I refuse to actually give the official #2 spot to Steve Ott, I'm going to go with bezzerkker's tweet in response instead:

#1 -The Fake Dan Ellis Memorial Tweet of the Week!

Simple and mean wins the day with me, as it always does. Great work, Lambert.

Remember, if you see a funny hockey tweet during the week and think it deserves a place in the top five, send it to me @MegalodonBOC .
