Dynamo Fans Sing Happy Birthday to Nicklas Backstrom

Last week, Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom celebrated his 25th birthday in Russia. To mark the day, Dynamo Moscow fans gave him a birthday cake in the shape of a hockey jersey. The club published this video of  an adoring Russian throng singing “Happy Birthday” to him. It’s cute, but Backstrom chanting “Dy-Na-Mo” along with them at the end is enough to break your hockey heart.

It’s like seeing your ex-girlfriend date someone else. You think you’re just on a break or something, but here she is getting serious with someone else. Now they’re holding hands and exchanging stupid looks and omigod now they have a dog? What’shegotthatidon’thavedammit. Ughhhh. This sucks. Give him back give him back. We saw him first.

    Well… at least they are taking good care of him. God, that sucked to watch. We miss you, Nicky!

    As soon as season starts this ex-girlfriend will be back, but the real heartbreak will be when Caps plays against Canes and Semin will put one of those bullet shots from 0 angle in top corner

    I love the Caps to death but I’d rather see our guys somewhere else having success and being happy then dressing up every week and talking for hours about a topic that will take more than a handshake to resolve

    You guys should’ve done Birthday Cards with Nicky too lol.

    Next year, totes. This man must know we are in this for the long haul. Crucial oversight by me!

    Yeah, it sort of sucked, but the video also made my day. I’m glad that the Dynamo fans are getting attached to him and caring about him. Hey, and I like the “girlfriend” analogy. Thanks to RMNB for this!
