Canucks and Beyond

Good grief. Every time I try and restrain myself from Leafs jokes, something new happens. From Shi Davidi at the CP (via The Chronicle Journal):
Posing for cameras in his underwear seems to have become a regular part of Borje Salming’s post-hockey life.
Hey, if at 56 you’ve still got it, why not flaunt it? “He’s got a pretty good body,” says Swedish artist Johan Wattberg, who spent the past year painting 31 portraits of the Hall of Fame defenceman.
Salming’s chiselled physique - which puts most men half his age to shame - is on display in many of Wattberg’s G-rated works, 21 of which were unveiled Tuesday at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
The complete exhibition can be found here.
In all seriousness, good for Salming - if you’ve got it, feel free to flaunt it. But geez…
I sorta don’t know what to say. For once.
