Emotions run high any time you fail at something you were hoping to succeed at, and when you’ve given it your all, the last thing you want is to have your effort questioned. As was the case with Blake Wheeler, coming off of a devastating game 6 elimination to the St. Louis Blues. The reporter has a certain inflection in his voice as he says “you guys probably expected your BEST”, which solicits an immediate response from Wheeler which is better heard, than read:
Looks good on ya Mr. “why didn’t you guys try harder?”. Even if it was a lack of effort that caused the loss, I think it’s fair to say that was the wrong time to be a douche.
As for Blake Wheeler and the Jets, you can bet your ass we’ll be cheering you on next year.
