Here’s a John Tortorella fact that you may not know: the man has no time — just absolutely none — for your ringing cellphone. He hates it like he hates Twitter. Maybe more. My best guess as to why is that Tortorella prefers to be the only thing that’s a threat to go off when he’s in a scrum.
In any case, Tortorella’s hatred for unsilenced cell phones is common knowledge in most media circles, but at least one guy failed to get the memo before Monday afternoon’s scrum. So Tortorella gave it to him.
“That’s gonna be a major-league fine, I tell ya,” Tortorella bristled. “I’m gonna walk. I’ll walk. If cell phones go off, I’ll walk.” Here’s video of the moment:
I feel bad for that cameraman, but at the same time, I also envy him a little. Being chewed out by John Tortorella is like being punched by Floyd Mayweather. Sure, it’s not ideal, but on the other hand, at least you can brag about it to your friends. They’re gonna be so jealous.
Or at least they would be if it wasn’t possible for them to experience the same moment. Want John Tortorella to chew you out when your phone rings? Well now you can, with the “John Tortorella chewing you out” ringtone. The next time someone calls you, you’ll hear the Canucks coach threatening to walk.
Here’s a preview of what it’ll sound like.
Except over and over, until you answer the dang phone.
Word of warning: if you do make this your ringtone, and it goes off during one of Tortorella’s scrums, Pass it to Bulis is in no way responsible for your injuries.
