From one of those fun summer trivia Q&A quickies with Colin McDonald, at New England Hockey Journal:
Which teammate has the worst taste in music?
What does he listen to?
"Something Russian. Honestly, I have no idea."
Surely this is some anti-Euro thing, and New Haven Colin just likes good ol' 'Merican tunes, right?
If you could hang out with any celebrity, who would it be?
Okay, I guess it's just innocent to-each-his-own taste thing. Tiesto, or Tijs Michiel Verwest, is "a Dutch musician, DJ and record producer of electronic dance music."
So there you have it. None of this relates to anything pressing, but it's summer -- a time when our commentariat is driven to madness and lengthy debates about Rush -- so now you can picture the Isles locker room battling over Tiesto versus "something Russian." (But not "something Rush-in', amirite?)
The rest of the Q&A is a good one, where you'll learn a few more things about McDonald, including which teammate has influenced him most and an age-jarring factoid about which video game he played "growing up."
And yes, maybe highlighting this is a naked plea for new character memes during next season's LHH game threads, because though the summer is long, the season is longer, so sometimes GIF storms and dance parties just happen.
You may now return to your summer haze. But change the station.
