Sergei Bobrovsky’s Interpreter Bashes Matt Carle’s Twitter Charity

Last week I published an article outlining Flyers defenseman Matt Carle’s plan to donate $10,000 to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia if he reached 10,000 Twitter followers.

I thought it was a clever plan. Carle made it clear that even if he didn’t get 10,000 followers by the end of the season, he would still donate.

On Monday evening, Dmitry Chesnokov, a Yahoo! Sports writer and Sergei Bobrovsky’s Russian interpreter, took to Twitter to tell the world how he felt about Carle’s “contest.”

As you can imagine, the feedback wasn’t positive.

“Seriously, @mattcarle25, can't you just donate to @ChildrensPhila w/out 10k followers? If I were rich I'd donate w/out making it a big deal.” - @dchesnokov

I’m surprised Ches would say this about a teammate of his good friend Bob. But then again, he IS a journalist and we state our opinions clearly.

In a way, I understand Chesnokov’s point. However, he drew a false conclusion in thinking that Carle was going for a publicity stunt.

His intentions were purely positive.
