Now you might be thinking that an NHL legend showed up to wow the crowd. Maybe it was a major Hollywood movie star. Or maybe it was former A-lister Cuba Gooding Jr. Mr. Gooding is a regular at Los Angeles Kings games, so he's a hockey fan. This is literally eight minutes of Mr. Gooding making network executives uncomfortable.
Is it just me, or does it seem like Cuba Gooding Jr. has a case of Tourette's? Why was he randomly screaming out names and words? It felt like he was summoning his character, Rod Tidwell, from Jerry Maguire with all the hooting and hollering he was doing.
Don't get me wrong: I like Cuba Gooding Jr., but this was weird. I appreciate that he was livening up a rather dull show, but this felt uncomfortable at times. Like when he accused Mark Messier for touching his posterior. I'm not sure what he was trying to do, but it's easy not to get hired in Hollywood when you act a little crazy.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
