Right. Did he not google Mandela on the way to the event?
Ohhhhh, you know what it is. He probably forgot to look it up, and couldn't on the way to the event because everbody knows that smart phones still don't exist in small provincial Canadian towns like Toronto.
No. The logic being sold to us here by the Leaf apologists in our mix is that Bernier was way too focused on being an average hockey player on an average team to even think to google Mandela. Like, that guy's in the zone, 24-7. he barely has time to text or check his emails. He's probably never even watched tv or gone to a movie. Actually, scratch that. He probably saw Idris Elba play the gatekeeper in Thor because it's an action movie, but has no clue that he played Mandela as well.
I don't know why we don't all just admit that most jocks are kind of dumb, especially Leafs.
