Brian Floyd is a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, facing the same problem every puckhead faces during the summer: It’s just too damn hot to rock an NHL sweater, even in that Kevin Smith-shorts-and-a-jersey look.
Problem solved, via Floyd’s sun-burnt back:
Yes, it’s a tribute to James Reimer, Leafs (back-up?) goaltender, as Floyd fashioned a “jersey” with some creative placement of lotion and the intense power of the sun’s rays.
Floyd, a drive-time host on 101.9 The Fox in Ontario, previously sported a Dion Phaneuf “sunburn sweater”:
No word if he placed a Maple Leafs logo stencil on his chest to complete the look …
Well, this is a handy way to display one’s fandom in the summer without sweating through your CCM, coupled with eventual skin cancer. It's a novel concept and a perfect way for Evgeni Malkin to never miss another game.
Floyd says that a Joffrey Lupul sun-created jersey is next;.
What, no Jonathan Burn-Yea?
