Bono Hitches Ride With NHL Scrub

Posted: June 8, 2011 by Keith Stone in Bono, NHL, road trip

Edmonton Oilers center Gilbert Brule was driving with his girlfriend around Vancouver when they happened upon an unusual hitchhiker: Bono. The rock star had gone for a walk when it started raining, so Brule forced his lady to stop and pick him up despite her doubts. What is a woman doing driving in the first place? That’s the real problem. I guess maybe that has to do with why Brule only scored seven goals this season. Only in Canada.

In return for the lift, Bono gave Brule tickets for his show in Edmonton. The forward promptly sold his tickets to Game 1 of the Finals. Again, Gilbert Brule only scored seven goals this season. However, Brule got a shout out at the show when Bono declared to the crowd that “I like ice hockey because people who play ice hockey are the kind of people who pick up hitchhikers. I’m ever so grateful. I’ve decided that I want to be Gilbert Brule.” That makes one of us.
