Shane O'Brien: Blood Unicorn


Nam Y. Huh - AP

And the award for the most bad-ass looking moment of the playoffs goes to...Shane O'Brien. With blood spurting from his forehead like he had tried to fight The Bride, SOB left the Canucks with only four defencemen. Briefly. He returned almost immediately and played a solid game, refusing to respond to the antics of the Blackhawks' bruisers, especially Andrew Ladd, who showed his "cowardice" by targeting the injury in a scrum.

During the game, I dubbed SOB the Blood Unicorn for the horn of blood spurting from his forehead. I suppose Blood Narwhal would also have worked, but there isn't a band named "Blood Narwhal" and there is one named "Blood Unicorn." From their myspace page:

hi. we love all of you. you complete me. we ride wolves in snow. we drink ice. our cars are airplanes. we swim in oceans. we swing at playgrounds. lets build a sandcastle. unicorns bleed blue. wake up, you're not sleeping.

Profound. Does SOB also love all of us? Does SOB ride wolves in snow? Does SOB bleed blue? Oh wait, he totally doesn't.

  1. Rather than lamenting that there isn't a band named Blood Narwhal, I think you should be proactive and start one. Genre: Laptop-Screamcore.
