Leaf fans know all too well the saga of Carlo Colaiacovo. A high Leaf draft pick with tons of expectations thrown his way, only to see his career sidelined by injury after injury. Still only 25 years of age, he hopes to put all the setbacks behind him and emerge as a new Leaf star on the blueline. With the recent departure of Bryan McCabe, Carlo should see plenty of ice time both even strength and powerplay to show what he can do.
Recently as I relaxed with both Carlo and his twin brother Paolo playing Guitar Hero, we talked about the upcoming season.
I watch Carlo as he rips through a rendition of Pearl Jam's Evenflo, and I note how much more muscular his arms look. I ask him if he's been working out even harder this summer. He winks, slowly smiles and says "well, what do you think?" Paolo laughs and says "yeah, my bro is ripped"
To prove his point, Carlo removes his t-shirt and my jaw literally drops. This is one fine male specimen before me. "Go ahead, try and find some fat". As I run my fingers along his torso, I admit I can't find an ounce of fat on the guy. Carlo smiles "Nice huh?" and I have to admit that yes, I am VERY impressed.
The new look Colaiacovo was on display for all to see Monday night, and early reports are very positive. Carlo hit hard, skated hard, and was generally the best player on the ice all night long. The future bodes well for this young man who has worked so very hard to regain his form. A tandem of Kaberle - Colaiacovo on the Leaf powerplay this upcoming season could reap benefits not seen since the days before McCabe became a shadow of his former self. The sky is the limit, that much is certain for Colaiacovo. With his new dedication to his training, Leaf fans can all collectively hope his days of injury are over.
" As I run my fingers along his torso," haha just sounded funny reading ... Carlo is a champ tho
were you interviewing him or trying to pick him up?
"Carlo removes his t-shirt and my jaw literally drops. This is one fine male specimen before me. "Go ahead, try and find some fat". As I run my fingers along his torso..."Sorry man, that just sounds sooooo queer lolCarlo is the siht, I pray he can stay healthy this year, hopefully him beefing up will keep him in the line up for more than the ave 33 games
lol the first half of this article was quite disturbing... "Carlo removes his t-shirt and my jaw literally drops. This is one fine male specimen before me. "Go ahead, try and find some fat". As I run my fingers along his torso..." that was absolutely jokes... plz don't go around touching men... regarding the article... yea I hope carlo does well this year... I am sure he will if he doesn't get injured...
Wow - good to see that Homophobia is alive and well at Hockeybuzz...Grow Up!
is this honestly a joke?
I expect big things from Carlo...VERY big things
Best Blog EVER. I almost peed my pants.
"Wow - good to see that Homophobia is alive and well at Hockeybuzz...Grow Up! "says the guy named davecox69
davecox69 LOL, that's too funny.
Did David Frost write this?
Carlo looked good in the first preseason game. While I can't see him taking Kubina's spot on the powerplay this year, I think Colaiacovo will at least play 70 this season and he could put up some decent numbers. More importantly, I think he will be a big asset in our own end.
Also, a question for Stajan:"Do you feel that, with a lot of the old guard now gone, you have to take up a position of leadership as one of the veterans on this team?"
My guess...this was written by UpshallMakesMeWet's boyfriend trying to make him jealous.
actully if you could ask stajan if he minds you touching and rubbing his nude body. curious if he'd be down for that.
Ask Stajan to bend over and pick up the soap.
another thing. just curious. ask if he evers like to get into nudee towell snapping contests with his teammates. that can really bring a group of guys together. YMCA y'all
He winks, slowly smiles and says "well, what do you think?"Did you guys neck after?
asp1986 - are you sure it was pee?
Uh... hmmm, no!
hahahah gl. I dont think so. He's junk and the expectation that leaf fans have of him doesn't help.
So as a 38 year old male, how often exactly do you play Guitar Hero with shirtless 25 year olds?
