Douchebag of the Week

Douchebag of the Week

It is an honor to be writing this douchebag of the week post. What are some of the qualities that people think of when they think of a douchebag? I tend to think of someone who is smug. Someone who has an over-inflated sense of self worth, compounded by a low level of intelligence, behaving ridiculously in front of colleagues with no sense of how moronic he appears. When I think of this, I think of Scott Hartnell, or myself, but for the sake of not writing about myself, Scott Hartnell has been named this weeks “Douchebag of the Week”. Anyone who has watched any of the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers can testify that his actions throughout the course of the series have been ludacris and in some situations, outright foolish. Off the top of my head examples of this include but are not limited to running our goalie, taking a series of ill-timed penalties, and just by looking at his appearance we can all agree that while he played a brilliant role on the Simpsons, he does not play such a dynamic role on the ice. Using David’s prior post about standards for athletes as a template, I believe that Scott Hartnell perfectly fits the bill as douchebag of the week.
