Kyle Wellwood fat jokes are about as fresh as the sashimi from which I contracted food poisoning over the weekend. Still, Kyle Wellwood lives on as the punchline for many a joke in the hockey blogosphere. Whether they’re fair or not, this .gif serves to embody the lazy, disinterested version of Kyle Wellwood that these jokes have led some hockey fans to believe is real.
For some context, TSN panned to Wellwood here prior to Sunday’s shootout versus the Devils right after Mike Johnson praised his effort in regulation and overtime. Thank you, Kyle Wellwood’s involuntary deep inhalation due to boredom.
