In Quebec, You Ain't Shit Until You've Performed Dentistry On Yourself

Heard on NPR today that Washington Capital Eric Belanger took a hockey stick to the mouth during an NHL playoff game on Friday. He then proceeded to do the following:

I'm becoming more and more convinced that despite their hilarious accents, French-Canadians are far more badass than I could ever hope to be. Keep in mind that the clip only shows one of the 9 goddamn teeth he lost from that hit. Oh, and by the way, he was back in the game shortly after getting checked out by the team dentist. Let me repeat that. He lost 9 teeth. He then almost immediately resumed the activity that led him to lose 9 teeth. If you'll excuse me I have to go search for any remaining sense of my masculinity, and then I have to go find out what business NPR had reporting on anything this cool.


  1. Zere's no Canada like French Canada, itz zee best Canada in ze land. And ze other Canada is ze bullshit Canada! If you lived here for a day you'd understand.

  2. I think you understand.

  3. Players should always use Athletic Mouthwear in sporting activities there is a great need to protect your smile. A properly fitted mouth protector will stay in place while you are wearing it, making it easy for you to talk and breathe.
