Dale Weise seems to be a little jealous of his crosstown rival Sidney Crosby. Why you ask? Ya know, he casually just got to meet a couple of Canadian celebrities after last night’s Pens vs. Avalanche game.
Julian, Ricky, Bubbles and Randy from Showtime’s Trailer Park Boys took a trip to the Penguins' locker room following Pittsburgh’s 6-3 win on home ice. The five looked like they had the time of their life and posed in a picture that ended up going completely viral on social media. Dale Weise of the Philadelphia Flyers appeared to have some serious FOMO and couldn’t help but wonder when the crew is going to head to Philly to take in a Flyers game.
So it’s not entirely random that Bubbles & co. showed up to last night’s outing. The show takes place in Crosby and Avalanche forward Nathan McKinnon’s home province of Nova Scotia and as it turns out, the two comp’d the tickets. Not a bad view!
Weise was born in Winnipeg but pretty much every kid growing up in Canada watched Trailer Park Boys and we’re sure they have numerous fans across the league. Philly hosts Pittsburgh on February 11 so perhaps the boys will make another appearance when Crosby heads to the other side of Pennsylvania.
