Kid, to Mike Babcock, embodying all of us: ‘I’m kind of just surprised that I’m actually talking to you’

New, comment

Babcock gave a kid a chance to ask him a question; he got this adorable response instead.

The World Cup of Hockey hasn’t started yet - exhibition games don’t count (and even then, Team Canada doesn’t get going until Friday) - but Mike Babcock is already winning in the press conference department.

There was a lucky kid in the midst of Babcock’s presser today, and Babcock made sure he wasn’t left out of the exciting world of sports journalism.

Only one thing - the kid had pretty much the exact same reaction most of us probably would have had, if suddenly put on the spot by one of the best hockey coaches in the world today.

And with that, the legend of Mike Babcock grows - because that was awesome, and easily the best presser moment I’ve ever seen.
