As most of you already know, we are unhealthily obsessed with Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.
Especially when they are together. On the same team. And being extremely into each other.
This obsession started when they were rookies for the Flyers and NBC ran a special on them and how they lived in an apartment together and they joked about not doing laundry (but Mike did it) and Jeff played in the playground by the apartment.
Yeah, we remember that video like it was shown yesterday.
After that, it was all downhill from there. They were and still are the bromance to end all bromances.
In our honest opinions at least.
So when the infamous day happened that they were both traded from the team that they signed long-term contracts with (together, of course), we were stunned and heartbroken.
Along with Carter and Richards as well.
But it was only a few months later that they were reunited in Los Angeles.
Not going to lie, we were definitely excited for the deal (even if one of our favorite defensemen was also traded that day).
Even Richards couldn't hold in his excitement and broadcasted it all over Twitter.
Because he missed his bromance buddy.
And it seems like everyone has jumped on the Richards & Carter epic bromance for the ages.
Like the Kings Twitter...
And CBC gets them to chat about their forbidden love.
They make an appearance with Cabbie and Jarret Stoll where Carter just stares lovingly at Richards while he talks about their life together or something like that.
Here's a link to the interview.
They were spotted around LA together, taking in all kinds of sporting events.

Because even if they were living together, they still had to spend every waking minute together.
Because that's how true bromances work. They were the original co-dependent bromance (so take notes, Hall & Eberle).
To complete this fairy tale of epic proportions, they of course win the Cup together.
And while we were yelling at the television for a kiss with a hand-off of the Cup, this was just as great.
And this was pretty great as well...
And so was this...
This might take the cake though...
Honestly, saying that just makes us think worse things than what was probably said. We have fantastic imaginations and can only take so much innuendo before we figure out the truth.
At the beginning of the Kings's amazing run in the playoffs, we were just happy that we could root for Mike Richards and Jeff Carter without feeling like we were betraying our allegiance to the Penguins.
But now we're truly happy for the two of them. Sure Richards has had a few questionable moments involving the Penguins. And sure Carter was a little bit of a baby when going to Columbus. And of course they are sluts and boozers but we still love them a lot.
So we are really happy that they have won a Cup.
And even happier that they did it together like a true bromance.
