My mom asked me to put the Ducks game on bc her best friend is a Ducks fan and is watching the game and texting her about it. She’s not really watching, just likes having it on in the background of her attention or something. The Ducks just scored and I was like “hey that’s a nice celly are you watching this mom this is prime hockey celly-ing here” and she was like “what’s a celly”
I backed up the broadcast to the goal and I told her a celly is when a team scores a goal and all the players on the ice head toward the same place, generally along the boards, and collide in a jumbled mess of helmets and pads and emotions and they celebrate scoring a goal because they’re just so happy and they have to hug it out before going back to the game.
I think her opinion of hockey players has been forever changed. I’m pretty sure before this moment she believed hockey players are thugs who live to smear each other into the boards and leap at every opportunity to drop their gloves and brawl.
