Once the gifts are unwrapped on Christmas Day, usually one of two things happen in Canada: families head for the toboggan hill (as the parents bring a Baileys in tow) or everybody rounds up for some road hockey.
Josh Donaldson did exactly that as he took part in a little bit of Christmas Day road hockey yesterday. By joining in this time-honoured tradition, Donaldson is inching closer and closer to official Canadian status.
I’m not sure exactly where this was from, but if I had to take a guess, considering how much snow Southern Ontario received in the last few days, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in the GTA for the holidays.
Congratulations to Josh on passing the first part of the Canadian Citizenship test. The next two sections involve reciting The Littlest Hobo theme song and a blindfolded Smarties/M&M’s taste test. If he can pass those final sections, Donaldson can officially call Canada home.
Update: This via Brianna Miller’s Instagram. Along with the road hockey, another holiday family tradition: playing board games while wearing those Christmas cracker paper crowns.
Maybe Donaldson really is a hockey fan after all; here he was earlier this season catching a Tampa Bay Lightning game.
Shohei Otani signed with the Angels as a two-way player, but maybe the Bringer of Rain has a future as a two sport player. He’s already halfway there; just change “Bringer of Rain” to “Bringer of Ice”.
