The United States men’s hockey team fell to Canada in the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday night, ending its hopes of contention in the 2016 tournament. And one notable American hockey player was just as unsurprised as you were.
If that makes no sense to you non-hockey fans, just understand this: they chose to take low-scoring grinders like Justin Abdelkader and Brandon Dubinsky and left second-best American goal-scorer Phil Kessel at home.
Literally. Minutes after USA’s elimination, Kessel tossed a shade bomb at USA Hockey on Twitter.
Just sitting around the house tonight w my dog. Felt like I should be doing something important, but couldn't put my finger on it.— Phil Kessel (@PKessel81) September 21, 2016
Damn. A shady take hot enough to melt John Tortorella’s mustache off from miles away while still keeping it relatively cold!
