First, we had snow man pants — now we have a Tommy Boy mask.
Fans of hockey — and the comedic stylings of the late Chris Farley — will be excited at Winter Classic for this little tidbit: Thomas McCollum will be wearing a mask with the backplate emblazoned with the words “Tommy Boy” and an image of the comedian.
It’s the look we all remember — the one he had on when he teased David Spade with lines like “Who’s your favorite Little Rascal, Alfalfa or Spanky?” (Who remembers that scene?)
Hopefully, it’ll bring some luck to McCollum, 24, who was drafted in 2008. The Red Wings gave him a qualifying offer this summer, surprising many who thought he was going to be cut loose. He’s spent most of his time in Grand Rapids, where he’s gone 45-55-6 in three seasons with the Griffins.
