The “Ice Bucket Challenge” was started by ALS patients Pete Frates and Pat Quinn to raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). It goes like this: you post a video of you dumping ice water over your head, then you challenge three of your friends to do the same. The promotion has led to a surge of money to fight the disease. Recently, guy that I totally hate but not in this instance, Sidney Crosby, completed the challenge.
Sunday evening, New York Islanders teammates and total besties, Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski, took the Ice Bucket challenge. It was the funniest one I’ve seen so far.
Ugh, Grabo. Why do you have to be so cool?
And here’s the GIF because obviously this needed to be GIF’d.
In the video, Grabovski challenged Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis and the team’s current coach, Randy Carlyle. Nonis and Carlyle were famously anti-Grabo two years ago, pushing him to the bottom six and then buying out his contract. After that, Grabovski ripped Carlyle to hell and back with a profanity-laced tirade. Now he’s asking them to donate to fight ALS.
On Grabovski’s own Instagram, he challenged Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov.
Orly, please do it, and challenge Ovi and Kuzya. RMNB’s August pageview quota depends on it.
