Kings Captain Dustin Brown Drops F-Bomb On Live TV After Cup Win (Video)
The Stanley Cup Playoffs constitute the most intense, grueling, physically demanding, and psychologically draining competition in professional sports—at least for the two teams who make it all the way to the end. The only thing that can compare would be the Tour de France, except even there the highs aren’t quite as high and the lows are quite as low (They don’t have sudden death double overtime in cycling, do they?).
Anyway, the point is, it takes 25 guys putting forth a herculean effort to win the Stanley Cup. And when you finally do win the Cup after a life-long pursuit of it, I imagine it would be pretty hard to contain your emotions.
That brings us to Dustin Brown’s “colorful language” during a post-victory interview with Pierre McGuire last night on NBC Sports’ coverage of the Kings’ Stanley Cup victory.
McGuire asked the Kings captain if he ever could have imagined hoisting the cup back in December when the team was struggling, and after trying for a few moments to give a thoughtful, family-friendly response, Brown just paused, shook his head, and said “it’s why we f**kin play.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t blame the guy one bit. Brown was a wrecking ball throughout the playoffs, and if he wants to drop formalities and speak the truth, I say go ahead. The kids will get over it.
