#TBT: Wherein Radek Bonk is coming in hot...

Thursday, 01.08.2013 / 10:50 AM
By Chris Lund - OttawaSenators.com / Inside the Senate Blog

Is it possible that Bobby Ryan was subtly paying homage to the legacy of Radek Bonk when he tweeted that he was coming in hot? There's no way of knowing — we simply don't have the technology — but Bonk was clearly the first on that train of thought, as evidenced by this Bodycheck cover.

There are many things to note here, so let's have a closer look...

- The mullet is a timeless classic as far as hairstyles go. If you have the ability to sport one in this fashion, I encourage you to do so.

- I'm assuming they actually lit that stick on fire for the photo.

- "All Fired Up/Tout feu, tout flammes" is quite a pun

- Note the bottom right corner indicates Canadian Tire Centre was still very much under construction.

Bonk played 689 games with the Sens over 10 seasons, recording 152 goals and 399 points. He is still among the franchise leaders in virtually every statistical category. All fired up, indeed.

Check back next week for more sweet, sweet nostalgia.
