The photo shows Avalanche forward and disappointed Swede Gabriel Landeskog posing with a shirt that includes a photo of the 2013 WJC champs, team USA. Above the photo of team USA it reads “I <3 AMERICAN BOYS”. Priceless.
The tweet from Johnson (@6ErikJohnson) read, “Proud of @GabeLandeskog92 for upholding his end of the bargain. Also thanks to @heylandsberg for the shirt.”
Now, I don’t know the whole story but it seems pretty easy to piece together. Erik Johnson and Gabriel Landeskog are teammates and I’m guessing friends. Johnson is American and Landeskog is Swedish. The Americans and Swedes just played each other in the gold medal game of the 2013 WJC and the Americans won. So, I assume that’s why Landeskog had to pose with the t-shirt.
Whatever happened this photo is awesome and hilarious. Feel free to spread it like a wild fire.
