“I just hate the guy … Malkin knew Ovechkin and introduced me to him and the first impression wasn’t great. I’m not really gonna say what happened but I’m like, ‘OK, this guy is a real douche.'”

~Maxime Talbot to 105.9 The X~

Max Talbot should start his own church, because what good is speaking the gospel truth if you’ve got no one to shout “Testify!” to you?

    I’m so glad to see Max has a firm grasp of the English language. Then again, he is French and Ovechkin is greasy, so he could have meant that Ovechkin needs a shower.

    A. Hockey can’t get here soon enough. Love the Tal-bot 2000.

    B. The Bucco’s of Suckitude are in my home away from home, hope I catch a foul ball tonite so I can throw it back at them. Plus beer hits harder at 5280 altitude to take away the sting of watching a loser more quickly.

    C. My wife got eyeliner tattooed on a few years ago. Best $350 we ever spent. Time saver, and now my sorry ass doesn’t have to find discontinued eyeliner from the Chinese black market. EVER.

    I’ll sing a TESTIFY! out to Max. BTW…the Trib wouldn’t use the word “douche” today when they reported on it. The way it was worded, I thought he called Ovie an asshole.

    For those who want to actually hear it (which I recommend), the interview is up on the X’s podcast page. I enjoyed listening to it last night while I was on my evening walk (I must have looked crazy to the other walkers/runners who were out what with all my hooting and laughing).

    The REAL Superstar speaks the truth.

    Why won’t these male media outlets use the word douche? It is far better than the ads on the sports pages for strippers and XXXXX adult clubs. hypocrites.

    I can’t wait until they start selling t-shirts with that on it at Yinzers. The “Taylor es un jagoff!” ones will sell well too.

    Why can’t everyone be so dang candid? This made my day.

    Talbot rocks my socks and shoes.

    Anyone who can be that hot in a Viking hat has my vote for Player of the Year. Being able to sum up Ovechkin in one word, IMHO, just adds to the hot.

    I object to speaking so poorly of douches. What did douches ever do to get such a greasy comparison?!? :D

    I was showing my wife the story on my phone when our 2 year old daughter took the phone and said “I wanna see Max” before blowing him a kiss….

    OMG – Doesn’t the guy look great in anything – in this case LESS would be SOOOO much BETTER :-) I wish he would take up swimming (one word – SPEEDOS) – ahhhh!

    LET’S GO PENS !!! Max is the unsung hero on the team – love his emotion and tough play. Great to see the Pens getting the spotlight before the #7 Douche, Soundbyte Mike and their team of grid iron thugs arrive at Latrobe this weekend

    HAAAAAAA!!! My husband heard this interview and had to immediately come home and find the podcast for me. I have used to word douche FOR-freakin-EVER and he used to roll his eyes and just look at me!! Lately it’s been all over the tv and when Max called Ovie a DOUCHE, it was official…he’s my favorite PENS player (for this month) Gotta love Max for calling it as he sees it!!!
