video games imitating life imitating video games

I was watching the NHL skills competition and then remembered seeing this video from a little while back...

Basically it's a junior hockey team from Canada which celebrates their wins like the characters from EA Sports' epic video game NHL '94. The players celebrations after wins was essentially guys holding their sticks over the heads with both hands and moving them up and down. It was especially funny to watch people skate in all directions (backwards and forwards) while stuck making this pose...

Big props to #3, defensemen Brandon Underwood, for doing the backwards booty shake.

This one is pretty awesome and the Kamloop Blazer's website even has the reaction to the celebration as one of its top stories. Dude, when you're a Western Hockey team and you're getting 140,000 hits in less than a few weeks on a 30 second posting of your celebration, you know you're doing something right.
