TJ Oshie bids for all EA Sports video game covers

- May 18th, 2014

St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie isn’t limiting himself to just one video game cover.

He wants five.

But if his apparent skills in football, golf, baseball and basketball don’t drastically improve soon he’ll have to stick with hockey.

The St. Louis Blues posted four “pick me” style videos to their YouTube account starring the American-born player doing his best to land himself on the covers of games like EA Sports’ Madden 15 and PGA Tour 15 (hey, the cover spot is up for grabs now that Tiger Woods and EA ended their long relationship).

Oshie is up against Colorado’s Matt Duchene in the quarterfinals of the NHL 15 cover vote competition.

In the one-minute clips, Oshie fails miserably at kicking a football, swinging a baseball bat, making a free throw and hitting a golf ball. We get it’s all for show because no one can be that bad at free throws.

Well, maybe Shaq.

And if all else fails, bust out the baby pics. Oshie’s fiancee, Lauren Cosgrave, tweeted out this picture asking fans to vote for her guy.

The first round of voting ends Sunday.
