Bruins Fight-Picking “Redneck Goalie” Turns to Yoga.

The self-proclaimed “Redneck of Goalies” Tim Thomas, has a few tricks to staying so loose and ready, up his jersey sleeves. With the Bruins winning the Stanley-Cup this “dream” season, it’s no wonder why people are asking, maybe just the most important player on the team, what his secrets to defending the net are.

While he may be the first player ever to win three major awards in one season, he is not the only hockey player to use Yoga, though he may be among the small number of players who take it seriously. For instance he never mentions “stretching and stuff” (see bottom video), and his instructor has nothing but good things to say about him. Which I assume means he never called her a “hot yoga instructor”  or had trouble keeping his “business” in check while concentrating on “down dog or something”(again, see the last video).

Actually he seems like a pretty nice guy, which is weird to say about fight picking hockey player, and if I ran into him in my class, I guess it could be worse (please see bottom video) 🙂

That video just begged to be seen 🙂
