Celebrity sightings are always fun, and traditionally creates some nervous energy….but not usually for the celebrity.
That is, until Rosalina and Jimmy Valeriano met Oiler captain Connor McDavid at Edmonton’s airport on Tuesday. The duo asked to get a photo with McDavid, who was on his way to Anaheim with the rest of his team as they prepare for Wednesday’s Game 7 against the Ducks. The result could possible be the best player-fan photo….or, at the very least, the most awkward player-fan photo…of all time.
Check out McDavid’s facial expression. And the way his body is completely puckered. “I didn’t even realize that I was holding him with that grip until I saw the picture,” Rosalina told Global News. “I was so excited.”
According to a family friend, the couple met a number of the Oiler players, and had their photo taken with Milan Lucic, Darnell Nurse and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins….but none provided the odd charm as this photo op with McDavid. ~ Jason
