It worked out pretty perfectly that the outcome of that week’s football game had no effect on the Titan’s standing in the playoffs. They were in no matter what happened, thank god, and the regular season was almost at its end. Normally this would have been a bummer for Puck, but for the first time in a very long time, football was the last thing on his mind. Not that he’d ever let his guys know that. Well, except for one.
When the game ended, he took some time to celebrate with the team before heading to the locker room and grabbing his things. He told his assistant coaches some story about how he made plans to meet up with a friend from college in Columbus, excusing him from sticking around for too long, before he instructed them to lock up when everyone was showered and out so he could quickly head back to his house. When he got home, he took a fast shower and changed into gym shorts and a t shirt before assessing the situation.
Ever since he had made the plans for Kurt to come over the day before, he made sure everything was in order and went to the store to buy them snacks and some other things for their weekend, so he didn’t have much to do now as he waited for Kurt to arrive. All that was left to do was to remake his bed a little nicer and make sure he didn’t look like a total slob. When everything was up to par, he grabbed a beer and sat down on the couch, letting out a deep breath as he waited for the younger man.
