Andrew Ference plays defense for the 2011 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, so you’d think he’d be a meathead who mostly drinks beer and scratches his balls. But it turns out he shops with his kids at Whole Foods like all the other bobos — not just because he likes fancy cheeses, but because he thinks eating organic gives him a performance edge on the ice. Plus, he’s a vermicomposter! (That means he has a worm bin to turn his kitchen waste into dirt.)
This all came out in a clip from National Geographic’s Behind the Puck:
And in case you were wondering whether eating tofu and being Canadian makes Ference any less of a monster on the ice, here he is brutalizing the Canadiens’ Jeff Halpern in what qualifies as an egregious hit even by Bruins’ standards.
Performance edge, indeed.
