Some days the internet is a wonderful place to be. Some days not, of course, but if I’m introducing this to you for the first time, then today is one of those wonderful ones.
I believe I stumbled across this site somewhere in a Harrison Mooney edition of Puck Daddy’s “Puck Headlines,” and since then, I’ve been rapt.
That one sad guy (sadhockeyguy.tumblr.com) features only pictures of hockey goal celebrations that also capture “that one sad guy” who’s really bummed that he wasn’t on the team that scored.
Just dejected faces, slumped shoulders and kicking-a-rock-down-alley-with-hands-in-pockets style reactions.
The captions are great too, a lot of “fine guys, whatever, I didn’t want to be invited anyway” type of stuff.
You can follow the site on twitter for your latest updates too.
I don’t know exactly why I find this so fantastic. Probably because it is.
