The Minnesota Wild’s Mark Parrish loves him some Nickelback. Really, really loves it. Too much, apparently. The self-pitying lyrics, dirge-like guitar riffs and general craptitude have Parrish in danger of losing his job.
Other than when his kid was born a couple of weeks ago, Parrish said,
It feels like I’m stuck in a rut, like I’m stuck in quicksand and can’t quite get out.
Hmm, that almost sounds like a bad song lyric.
At any rate, Jacques Lemaire has had just about enough of Parrish’s listless, depressive “rut.” In a polite, French-Canadian way, Lemaire told Parrish to stop sucking his thumb and start busting his ass.
And stop listening to fucking Nickelback already.
