I ask Richards what he thought of "Mats." He goes, "Who? Oh, Zucc. I don't know him as Mats. That's like calling me Brad." #BroadwayHathumor— Pat Leonard (@NYDNRangers) March 12, 2012
...i found this absolutely hilarious. I have about five close friends from high school that I still don't know their first names because I've called them by their last name since I've known them.
That's such a Maritimer thing...everyone calls everyone by their last names, especially guys. Gets a little confusing when the last name is LeBlanc and there are 30+ pages of LeBlanc in the phone book, LOL...
