On the adorability scale, this 3-year-old San Jose Sharks fan ranks somewhere between Joey Junior Blackhawks Reporter and that little Penguins fan that freaked out when his parents revealed themselves as loyal to the Red Wings. Here is hockey parenting at its finest:
You nearly had us at "Patwick MAHLEAU!" You definitely had us at "Marc-Edwah VLASIC!"
OK, so it was bad enough Dan Girardi made every hockey parent jealous on HBO 24/7 because his little 2-year-old can take one-timers like he's Steven Stamkos. Now we've got a 3-year-old who says "Niittymaki" better than half the play-by-play guys in the League.
Parental inferiority complexes, on the rise ...
