Breaking news: David Booth takes a slackline to the groin [Video]

It seems like we’re always talking about David Booth’s groin.

It’s been a problem area for him ever since he arrived in Vancouver — something many fans feel is partly Booth’s own doing. The winger has come under fire in recent years for his offseason training regimen, which involves a lot of dry land stuff — weight training, hunting, hiking — and not enough stuff that would get his groin ready for the rigours of a intense sport played on ice.

We’ve scoffed at this notion in the past. But on Wednesday, Booth uploaded irrefutable evidence on his Instagram that some of his groin troubles are self-inflicted:

At the risk of sounding like Homer Simpson, this is, without a doubt, the greatest video ever.

One of the things we love about David Booth is that he shares everything. Sure, it can be a problem, like when he gave us that video of him taking down that bear. But it can also be quite rewarding. His Lutheran High School North word of the week comes to mind, as does this above video, in which he takes a tightrope to the junk.

This is some terrible timing from Booth. Not only is it going to fuel the opinion that he needs to protect his groin better, but he’s supposed to be getting married to his fiancé Ashley Durham this month.

And you thought the Canucks were the only ones to suffer from Booth’s inability to stay healthy.

    WTF is up with Booth sporting a top knot? He isn’t a samurai, he’s a freaking third liner on a contract buy out bubble.

    How can you not love him? I think we should trade all the Swedes and go full Bad News Bears. But that would mean we have to keep the Americans, Kesler included. They are the baddest news of the bears. And we’d probably also have to reacquire Ballard to go full on. And maybe Salo for the break ability.
