Last postseason, Kevin Bieksa caught flack for dropping the gloves with San Jose Sharks’ forward Patrick Marleau. Sure, Marleau initiated the fight in an ill-advised attempt to showcase his toughness and recently-questioned guts, but the mismatch was so evident that Bieksa was criticized just for acquiescing the request.
In retrospect, it was even more of a mismatch than we thought. As it turns out, Bieksa doesn’t even need to throw punches to knock Marleau off his feet. He can do it with little more than a mighty exhalation.
We recently learned that Bieksa’s animal nickname may be Wolverine, but maybe it should be big bad wolf, because that is some serious huffing and puffing. No wonder he’s such a good interviewer; his lung capacity is downright ridiculous. Those milk hot dogs on the Sharks will think twice before putting themselves in his airstream.
Oh hey, speaking of huffing and puffing to take down a hot dog, here’s Bieksa doing the same to one of the little pigs.
