Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better: Jordan Eberle vs. Taylor Hall (Video)
Forget about all those trick-shot videos, where third-string quarterbacks, soccer goalies and long snappers take a couple dozen attempts at some crazy shots, fluke a couple off, and head to the editing room to string together what they hope will be the next biggest viral video on YouTube.
Here we have two of the NHL’s young superstars, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall of the Edmonton Oilers, playing each other in a game of H-O-R-S-E after practice. No editing. No set-up. Just two teammates going head-to-head for bragging rights.
It is interesting to see both players show a competitive side during the game, raising their arms after accomplishing a challenge, and tossing their stick several feet into the air when they fail (as was the case with the younger Hall). In the end it was the 2008 22nd overall pick Eberle defeating the 2010 first overall pick Hall.
Here is a look at two of the NHL’s brightest up-and-coming stars in action.
