My name is Ville Leino, and I would like to dispel some rumors

By

Hello, my name is Ville Leino, and I play left wing for the Detroit Red Wings. I have no relation to the American comedian Jay Leno. Our names are not the even spelled the same. I understand the confusion. Our names are similar, and just one look at me tells everyone that I have an excellent sense of humor.

Please, review these other differences between myself and Jay Leno.

– He is Italian, and I am a Finn.

– He is from Boston, I am from Savonlinna. Savonlinna is more ethnically diverse.

– He tells jokes on television and despite his efforts, he is mostly unliked. I play hockey in Detroit, and because of that, I am mostly unliked.

– He has witty but forced banter with Kevin Eubanks. I have swift but precise 2 on 1s with Kris Draper.

So you see, I am not the big-chinned American Jay Leno. I have an i in my name, and am not the reason Southland got cancelled. Please stop sending me his hate mail.
