caps-flyers-line-brawl11

Photo credit: Eric Hartline

During Friday’ Caps/Flyers line brawl, defenseman John Carlson lost his mind while watching his best pal Braden Holtby get assaulted by Ray Emery. In this photo by Eric Hartline, Carlson yells at official Francois St. Laurent for his role in letting the attack happen. John Carlson is a good teammate. He cares. This is good.

But I’m a snide blogger and I can’t help but laugh. I’ve looked at this photo 73 times since Saturday, and I giggle every time. Carlson looks like he’s about to eat St. Laurent whole. He looks like he wants to destroy something beautiful. He looks like he’s telling Tom Cruise that he can’t handle the truth. Carlson is usually a mellow guy, with a slight grimace on his face 99% of the time, so the whole thing was a bit unusual.

I wonder what would happen if I cut out Angry John and let you guys put him in other settings, situations, and events? That worked wonders for McKayla Maroney.

Download it as a png (here’s another version that includes his leg), and put Angry John wherever you want, and upload your photoshop (save it as a jpeg) into our comments below. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.
