LA TOURISM BOARD:The Ottawa Senators come into town with a bit of pressure due to the fact that many people considered them a favorOH WHO CARES??? DID YOU SEE WHAT SENATORS FORWARD BOBBY RYAN TWEETED THE OTHER DAY?!?
Serious question twitter friends? Do I look Scarlett Johansenn? — Bobby Ryan (@b_ryan9) October 7, 2013
It's been over 48 hours since this was Tweeted...
and Bobby Ryan has not yet claimed his account was hacked.
...and that answer is YES.To be honest, imagining Bobby Ryan in the acting roles of Scarlett Johansson is not all that difficult. For instance, Bobby Ryan was traded to the Ottawa Senators over the summer because it was impossible for the Anaheim Ducks to keep together their top-scoring threesome.
As an American, the transition to Canada has proved to be a little difficult for Bobby Ryan... and at times has led to feelings of being a stranger in a strange land.
If there is any movie that knows about a top-scoring threesome, it's Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Bobby Ryan has also been known throughout his NHL career for choosing "interesting" relationship partners.
My gf just asked me if we were moving north of Detroit. Not a geography major haha — Bobby Ryan (@b_ryan9) July 5, 2013
And like most NHL players... when Bobby Ryan was traded over the summer... there was just one place he didn't want to go.
Finally... Bobby Ryan knows all about being young and awkward and feeling left out... even with your best friend by your side.
Sadly, the photoshops above aren't even the best Scarlett Johansson-inspired photoshops that we've ever created at The Royal Half.
This one is.
