You guys like the whole thing with the shootouts?
Ballard: Ya I mean, I don't go on them. So I'm like a fan, I might as well go sit in section 212. I never shoot.
They don't let you shoot in the shootout?
Ballard: No, they don't even let me shoot in practise in the shootout.
Do they let you shoot at all?
Ballard: no, have you seen me shoot? you wouldn't let me shoot either.
If you got into a shootout, what kind of moves would you use?
Ballard: I would try not to fall, Id be so nervous. That's probably why I don't get to go, because I tell them I'm nervous. I'd just try to get a shot on net, put my head down and skate back to the bench.
So your main thought in a shootout would be, trying not to fall?
Ballard: yeah, thats the definition of clutch, right?
very insightful, eh? I just made fun of Torres the other day for his goal in a shootout being ' getting a shot on net'...maybe Ballard's spending to much time with him off the ice or something.
In other news, I've discovered that Ballard is an alright actor and I need to start being a little nicer.
some extra fun
Shout out to @Miyudreams for finding the first video and sending it to me. Another big shout out to @bradevans19 for the new banner. Thank you to everyone else who e-mails me things as well, however it's making it far to easy to make fun of him and I need to try to lay off that a bit. The picture of him in a Team Canada jersey is great, maybe one day I'll use it.
