Ryan Johansen shared a pre-Valentine’s Day kiss with his hockey stick Friday during the Nashville Predators’ game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Carrie Underwood had some fun at his expense on Twitter.
The country music singer, whose husband, Mike Fisher, plays alongside Johansen on the Predators, sent four different tweets his way with a video of the hilarious moment, accompanied by love-inspired song lyrics.
“It was pretty funny,” Johansen told The Tennessean. “She’s pretty well known, so I have a bunch of friends back home that follow her and stuff because (they’re) big country fans. They were texting me before I even knew, like, ‘Hey, Carrie Underwood’s tweeting at you,’ and I’m like ‘What? I had no idea.’
“So I talked to (Fisher) about it. I guess she thought it was hysterical when I gave my stick a kiss there in Tampa. I guess she just thought it was so funny, she had to make fun of me, I guess.”
But Johansen had the last laugh when he told Underwood to “get your own Valentine” while kissing her husband on the cheek.
