It seems like less than three weeks ago when I did a recap of the Pittsburgh Pirates draft, but I'm back with thoughts about this weekend's Pittsburgh Penguins draft...inspired by Sir Mix-A-Lot's classic song, Baby Got Back. Enjoy!
Name: Daniel Sprong
Selection: 2nd round (46th overall)
Amateur Team: Charlottetown (QMJHL)
The Penguins went right with the opening few lines with this selection:
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get "Sprong"
Name: Dominik Simon
Selection: 5th round (137th overall)
Amateur Team: Plzen (Czech Republic League)
Yes, you guessed it. Simon is white so...
Then turn around, stick it out
Even white boys got to shout
Name: Frederik Tiffels
Selection: 6th round (167th overall)
Amateur Team: Western Michigan (NCHC)
Tiffels was born in Cologne, Germany. You know what else is German? Mercedes-Benz
You say you want to get in my Benz?
Name: Nikita Pavlychev
Selection: 7th round (197th overall)
Amateur Team: Des Moines (USHL)
From Yaroslavl, Russia, did you know that Nikita has a rigorous workout routine?
So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda
Let's hope that these future Penguins players have hockey careers as successful as Baby Got Back!
This is either brilliant, or more likely, one of my worst blog posts.
