The Blues met John Travolta and were pretty excited about it

Nov 21, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

In keeping with PHT’s goal of bringing hockey fans all the NHL news they need to know AND the odd bit of news they have absolutely no need to know, here’s a picture of some St. Louis Blues with famous actor John Travolta — star of Look Who’s Talking, Look Who’s Talking Too, and Look Who’s Talking Now — in Boston, where the Blues have a big game tonight against the Bruins.


Picture courtesy Darren Pang, who’s right there in the middle.

“It was cool,” defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said, per In The Slot. “We didn’t even realize that he was there until Panger mentioned something and he came over and chatted with us. He was just a very, very nice guy, very humble. It’s always cool to meet someone like that.”

Apparently Travolta is in Boston filming a movie called The Forger, which is hopefully better than his last movie, Killing Season, which the Los Angeles Times called a “pretentious, preposterous, dueling-dialect flameout,” but was still better than Look Who’s Talking Now.

    Perhaps I’m showing my age, or lack of….but who the hell is Too Short?

      If you were really showing your age you’d actually know who Too Short is. He’s an 80’s/90’s hip-hop artist.

        So then its lack of age…born in 89.

      Who’s Darren Pang? If it wasn’t for his TV work I probably wouldn’t know him. How was he a finalist for Calder?

    (He also said “or lack of”)

      This came on the same day I realized I’m getting old because I saw where a payphone used to be in a building…old enough to remember antiquated technology. Its a weird feeling.

        Sorta like remembering the days when there was no internet.

    Why is everyone just ignoring the fact that Telly Savalas and Jay Leno are photobombing the left side of the picture?

    no mention of a youthful ed asner and wait, is that charles martin smith?

    no reference to travolta in face off

    Hey Atwater,

    That was good, Kojak – who loves you baby!

    John T. Is looking horrible. Plastic surgeries gone bad.

    After the photo, travolta immediately asked everyone there for a massage. Let the lawsuits commence

    It was all downhill after Barbarino. Yeah, right!

    He gave Panger a happy ending. “Holy Jumpin!!!”

    “you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
    They call it a Royale with cheese.”

    Travolta probably recruited them to join the church of scientology, where you refuse to give medication to your son.
