Matt Bonner unaware of his own awesomeness
There is a proper recap in the works (and I submitted a piece for tomorrow’s Daily Dime), but I wanted to lighten the mood after a tough loss.
In the postgame locker room I asked Matt Bonner what it felt like to live the life of an adjusted plus/minus poster child?
“Wait, adjusted what?” And then Bonner greeted me with the most blank-faced born and brazed on New Hampshire sandwiches stare I’ve ever witnessed, and I’ve seen my share.
For a moment he thought of faking his way through an answer, but finally fessed up. “Wait, what is it, really? I have no idea.”
I rattled off a quick summation in cool sounding stat-boy spiel.
“Really, who keeps track of that?”
But before I could answer, he gave his final word.
“I’m sure it has everything to do with the other guys on the floor. I just try to make my shots.”
