The ‘Most Nova Scotia thing ever’

Trailer Park Boys meet Sid the Kid af­ter game in Pitts­burgh MORE ON THIS STORY AT


Sid­ney Crosby and the Trailer Park Boys in the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins locker room af­ter a Dec. 4 game. HAL­I­FAX—Let’s raise a glass to this un­likely friend­ship.

On Tues­day night in Pitts­burgh, Pen­guins su­per­star Sid­ney Crosby wel­comed some fel­low Nova Sco­tians into the team’s dress­ing room: the Trailer Park Boys, along with beloved Sun­ny­vale Trailer Park as­sis­tant su­per­vi­sor Randy.

“It was re­ally spe­cial. It was awe­some,” said Robb Wells, who plays the char­ac­ter Ricky in the hit se­ries, in a phone in­ter­view on Wed­nes­day.

Bub­bles, also known as Mike Smith, posted a photo of the Boys meet­ing No. 87 af­ter the game against the Colorado Avalanche.

“Look who I found in the @Pen­guins locker room!!” wrote @mike­smith­bub­bles on Twitter.

Crosby’s Pen­guins won 6-3 over fel­low Cole Har­bour star Nathan MacKin­non and the Avalanche. The Trailer Park Boys are cur­rently do­ing a stage tour south of the bor­der, and Crosby hooked the boys and their crew up with 10 tick­ets for Tues­day’s game.

Wells and John Paul Trem­blay, who plays the char­ac­ter Ju­lian, are also from Cole Har­bour, N.S. and have met the Pen­guins cap­tain at var­i­ous times over the years.

“We’ve been to an­other game down there and saw him a cou­ple of times in Hal­i­fax,” Wells said.

“It was a weird co­in­ci­dence we were all there that night,” Wells ex­plained.

“We were just goof­ing around, ba­si­cally,” Trem­blay added when asked what they talked about with Crosby.

Bub­bles’ Twitter feed was the talk of the town on Wed­nes­day. The tweet had been shared more than 2,600 times and liked more than 9,300 times by Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

“Pride of Nova Scotia right there ... and an OK Hockey player,” replied Twitter user @hooves04 to the post.

“Most Nova Scotia thing ever!!!” said Twitter user @Al­lenGal­ley.
