Tanner Glass Fighting Bears

Tanner Glass, doing valuable research like a good Dartmouth alum.

Last night, Tanner Glass knocked out Islander forward Matt Martin with a brutal haymaker. It was an impressive punch, and perhaps even moreso for Canuck fans, who are used to Glass holding his own in fights, but rarely winning them outright. According to HockeyFights.com, Glass has fought twenty-five times in a Canucks uniform and seven times this season. Do you remember any of them? Not really. But you'll remember last night's, and so will Matt Martin.

So where, exactly, did the Scrabble Champ develop such a mean right hook? PITB is here to tell you: fighting bears. Word is he's been doing a little bare-knuckle bear boxing on the sly. Well, the secret's out. Here's photo evidence that isn't in any way photoshopped:









Editor's note necessitated by hilariously false reports: the header image is also a photoshop. In the
original image, Tanner Glass is reading George Orwell's 1984. As far as PITB knows, he has never read a book called "How To Fight Bears."

  3. In the third picture, it looks as if Glass has reached into the Bear's chest and crushed it's heart. Such ruthlessness.

  5. i like that you separated the bears by species. brown bears would only ever co-operate with other brown bears and obviously polars bears only ever fight in twos

  6. Damn right, Ben. Polar bears and brown bears don't live anywhere near each other. If there's one thing I stand for, it's realism.

  7. I am saving these all... for research, of course. That second-to-last one is a thing of absolute beauty.

    The thumbs up would be funny if it was Desbiens, cause he doesn't know how to make a fist.

  9. Geez...and all this time I thought it was only wolverines and dingo's he trained against. New respect for Glass!

  10. Hilarious!!

    The book cover looks realistic enough that I went to find the source image to figure out what-the-hell...

    And now seeing the source image -- didn't Tanner Glass go to high school before attending Dartmouth?

  11. That's funny, J21.

    Incredibly, I'm zeroing in on my Master's in English and I've still never read any Orwell. It's my secret shame.

  12. You should be very ashamed. "1984" is fantastic. But I didn't read it in high school either.

  13. So much funny in one post shouldn't be legal.

    (It's a good thing it's the Ursidae kind of bear he's fighting. Colbert Nation needs a man like him.)

  14. I think the kind of lip pulling going on in that fourth photo shouldn't be allowed in bear fights.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Excellent work again, as is to be expected at PITB.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not to hijack a thread but Orwell is best read outside of high school.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Actually, I remember him making very quick work of Luke Schenn early last season. That was a good one.

  18. I hope there were "3rd Bear in" penalties assessed!

  20. Tanner could teach Colbert a thing or two.

    ReplyDelete
  21. He could be re-reading it.
