Q:How u feel about the Finland vs Russia game
CONCEAL DONT FEEL
i actually fuckING DIED I WOKE UP EARL Y FOR IT AND I WAS LIKE SO STRESSED MY HEART WAS RACING ALL GAME IT WAS SO PAINFUL TO WATCH I WAS SO WORRIED AND THEN WHEN IT FINISHED I WAS SO RELIEVED AND HAPPY I FELL ASLEEP RIGHT AWAY AND was 15 minutes late to class but it ok
i felt really hard
Q:what are you going to school for if you don't mind me asking??
god this took me a year to understand. i had no idea what you were asking for the longest time
psych major. used to double major in criminal justice, but UVA doesnt have that major. so just psych. and i take classes in public policy for fun
thIS ISNT OKAY.
Q:Who do you think will get the gold medal for hockey?
Q:My favorite thing is how in the picture of the Finland team riding their bikes, Tuukka is the first one like he's leading a freaking parade. He's always first. He's Tuukka.
he literallly is. he wont let anyone else lead ever. im surprised his not team captain. i bet he just conceded to selanne because teemu is the only person in the world that tuukka respects besides tim thomas.
Q:Everybody in Finland keep saying that the FIN-CAN game was actually Canada vs. Rask game. Tuukka was great! :) Russia tho... I don't want to say it but I think Finland's screwed. Oh well, still looking for the game, excited as always!!
i know im really really scared. because russia like….. will actually die if they lose this game. putin will literally end the olympics right there. I WAS SO PROUD OF TUUKKA HE PLAYED ALMOST SO WELL
Q:I GET SAD bc ik that I'll never be able to meet him/be his friend which sucks (and sounds creepy as fuck but whatever)
awww that is sad if you think about it that way but its okay there are other people out there who can be just as cool as him honestly hes probably the lamest irl
also unrelated, ytday i said finland would play winner of CZE/SVK. i confused finland with the US. finland is playing russia. aka kill me.
Toews’ wraparound attempt and a save by Rask.
Check out the latest “Getting to Know” video with Tuukka Rask at the link above or by clicking here.
More than halfway through the season, Rask’s Q&A is the 15th video we’ve filmed so far. The segment started fairly organically back in August when we visited Jarome Iginla in British Columbia before he first suited up in the Spoked-B, and has kind of taken on a life of its own.
For us, it often breaks up the monotony of the everyday postpractice, pregame and postgame interviews with the team that we package in our “Bruins Beat” reports.
Something I’ve learned? No matter the questions/answers (and how serious or lighthearted - or ridiculous - they may be), a piece of the Bruin’s personality always shines through, and that is the ultimate goal.
The interviews usually last longer than the 2-3 minute videos that end up on BostonBruinsTV.com. That means there are often a few questions and answers that don’t make it in. So, I figured there’s no better time than the Olympic Break to go back through the footage.
We’ll start by filling in the “Getting to Know Tuukka”…
Favorite band and type of music?
[No hesitation here.] “Favorite band’s got to be Metallica, but I’m pretty much everything goes for me, music-wise. I’m mostly classic rock, rock, metal, that’s my first selection.”
Play an instrument?
"I play drums, and a little bit of guitar."
So, if we had a drum set here right now in the locker room, what would you play?
"I don’t know, I don’t really play songs…I just jam. But a song from Metallica, Seek and Destroy."
Is that your favorite song?
"I’d say it’s a pretty good song, it’s up there."
If if I had you make a band with other guys in this room right now, is there anyone you would choose to put in your group?
"Johnny, he can play guitar. Then Looch and Bart can sing - well I don’t know if they can sing, but they like to sing, so those three at least."
[Johnny Boychuk was soon standing right by the camera. “He’s putting you in his band,” I said. “Well, yeah, he’s smart,” said Johnny. “Lead guitarist,” Tuukka told him.]
If you’re not playing hockey, would you be a drummer?
"Oh I don’t know, being a rock star would probably be nice, would be really draining but - rockstar, or soccer player or tennis player."
So, favorite non-hockey sports, soccer and tennis?
"Yeah, and golf, have to put golf up there, too."
David said soccer, too. Could you beat him?
How about in two-touch?
"Yeah, yeah, I can juggle the ball [better than] most of the team, I would say."
Before hockey was on the radar, what was your first job?
[Well, I first blindly started ‘how’d you make your first dollar?’ to which the smirking netminder gestured, ‘well, we didn’t have dollars in Finland.’ FYI, would have been the markka and then euro going into his paycheck back then…]
"But I was a stagehand in the local opera festival when I was 15, so that was my first job. Just changing the stage and helping out everybody, just kind of a handyman, so to say. You know, 15 years old, you’re kind of trying to do whatever people say to do, just staying out of the way, so just changing the stages and helping people out."
Have a recent movie recommendation?
"Yeah, Anchorman 2, probably that. [Funny?] Yeah, it was really good."
Speed boat or fishing boat?
Bart would probably be more the fishing boat type, huh?
"Yeah, I don’t fish too much. Speed boat, or jet ski."
[Props to No. 40 for responding to this last one…]
Would you rather have every game end in a shootout or spend an entire practice taking Zdeno Chara slapshots from the faceoff circle?
"Zee’s slapshots. He doesn’t shoot that hard."
Q:he probs makes the other goalies be his personal servants lbr here
lmao definitely. not even the goalies. the entire finnish olympic delegation. why do you think they suck his dick (literally and figuratively) so much? hes the king of olympics. he makes everyone give him their oreos
Q:do you ever just think about tuukka a lot and just get really sad bc i do
WHY DO YOU GET SAD. I GET HAPPY. LOOK HOW MUCH HES DONE. HES A STAR. IM SO PROUD OF HIM. AND HE HASNT SOLD OUT OR ANYTHING
Q:How do u think playing in the Olympics will affect tuukka's ego
u think he already hasnt tried to take the throne from putin
"what’s your favorite food?"
"why do you like chicken wings so much?"
"who doesn’t like chicken wings?"
TUUKKA I DONT LIKE CHICKEN WINGS
Q:I wonder if money was the only thing motivating Dobby to leave. He was asking for more games last year. He has stated that he wants to be the #1. I think he sees himself as a potential NHL starter that was stuck behind all Tuukka's strong play and management's display of faith in Tuuk as the main guy. Maybe he chose Carolina because Cam Ward has difficulty staying health and Justin "good glove but basically sucks" Peter's isn't a threat. Just my idea. Glad Carolina might turn into a #1 gig.
I think you’re totally right. It was probably the starter GODDAMNIT THIS STUDENT BUS DRIVER SUCKS SO MUCH ASS HE STOPPED SO SUDDENLY AND I GOT COFFEE ON MY WHITE JACKET AND MY PHONE FLEW OFF MY LAP thing because playing on a professional level last season showed how good he was to da world. I’m proud of him but I miss him and I have to visit him in Raleigh more
