As some of you might know, my area of interest within sports is the intersection of hockey and workplace awkwardness.
For instance, imagine you’re traded to the Devils, coached and GM’d by the notoriously angry and honest Lou Lamoriello.
Now, imagine the team just lost game by three goals and Lamoriello is the only one offering you a ride to your car.
It happened to new Devil Brad Lukowich.
I think any time your boss gives you a ride somewhere, it can be a bit awkward. What do you talk about? What do you listen to?
Lukowich said the ride wasn’t that bad, though.
Still. Very, very awkward.
I imagine after last night’s spanking by the Islanders, future car rides might be a bit more tense.
