You are faced with an impossible mission, so you’ve decided to recruit a team of real people into your own Avengers team to go on an awesome adventure to save the world (For time travel reasons, you can’t have more than 6 members, and they can only be people from the past 500 years or so)
So I finally went through omgeverythingplease and here are things that I didn’t know
Bitty is OBSESSED with food. OBSESSED.
Boy has a *problem*
Like I know we like to headcanon that Bitty goes into some sort of media, but he’s more likely to become a food critic. Basically he’s more into the “baking” part of “baking vlog” than the “vlog” part.
Holster is a grumpy messy bitch.
For real, the team seriously debated who was grumpier: Jack or Holster
(for like, a hot second, before the answer became obvious)
(It’s Jack. Jack is the grumpiest)
Ransom and Bitty are very close friends. Close enough that Bitty chirps Holster that he’s being replaced via tweet.
Ransom and Bitty get PSLs from “ ‘Bucks”.
That is a quote. Eric Richard Bittle has called Starbucks, ‘Bucks.
(I bet he calls Target, Tar-zhay too)
This one was a bit more analytical: we found out about Jack coaching peewee via Bitty’s twitter
Bitty is the one who tells us that the Jack says the kids call him “Coach Z”
Because Bitty is the one who typed out the tweet, if the kids called Jack “Coach Zed”, he would have spelled out “Zed.”
Therefore we can assume that the kids called Jack “Coach Zee” and not “Coach Zed”
However this revelation by Jack was immediately followed by a debate over Zee vs. Zed. So who really knows?
I still don’t know how either of them pronounces “pecan”
i think my favorite thing about the SMH team is just how willing they are to just accept people– and not even accept them, but make them feel immediately welcome. Like… how long do you think Ford was even the manager-in-training before they went to that show and freakin’ cheered for her? a week? two?
like for real, sports’ teams can be very exclusive. (hell, regular friend groups can be a bit standoffish!) And she isn’t even technically on the team. And Ransom and Holster are going to be gone before she is actually the manager? But those two (and I’m sure Shitty and Jack before them) have set up this culture where it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been there or how long you will overlap, if you are part of the Team, you get treated as part of the Team. Pretty much immediately. Literally so fast.
chowder better be the one giving the haus tour after bitty leaves otherwise i’m gonna fight because LITERALLY no one else would be as good as he would any
like sure it’ll be a complete trainwreck but he’ll also remember the most random facts (‘oh!! yeah!! bitty told us to throw that couch out over 200 times!’ 'oh that boiler is from 2009 and broke down 8 times in the past three months, one time when nursey was taking a shower and another time when bitty was running the dishwasher anyway soap got eveywhere but nursey didn’t seem super bothered??’) and it’s just weirdly endearing like all these frogs feel so comfortable around him and start to really feel like part of the team bc they’re hearing all these weird stories but it makes the team seem more real and less like. 'omg the two-time frozen four winner samwell wow!!’ like pls babes
and he buys all of them sharks merch like they each get a sticker or something and he has stats memorized back to like the 90s and will just casually throw them out there but if a kid asks him about the sharks/is a fan than the entire tour is derailed and it ends up lasting 2 hours longer than it should but it’s worth it and the frogs love it so much!
chowder explains everything in so much detail (like too much detail) but it helps the frogs feel more comfortable because going to college is confusing but the hockey team is a weird loving family and it makes them excited to be on the team
30 minutes are dedicated to the rules and expectations of team breakfast ('no one has ever fit more eggs in their mouth than holster and honestly we don’t want anyone to try’)
after the haus tour is over chowder drags all the frogs around campus pointing out the best places for them to eat lunch and fastest paths on the quad and basically just gives them a bunch of pointers that orientation doesn’t lol
and chowder is super dedicated to it because he remembers how great bitty was at it and wants to live up to his legacy and also bitty made him feel super welcome and comfortable and he also highkey admires shitty and wants to make him proud too
and anytime he sees caitlyn and the girls team practicing he’ll wave frantically and be like 'CAITLYN!! HI!!! that’s my girlfriend she’s amazing and pretty and super good at everything she does she’s fantastic wow’ bc he just really loves her a lot!!!
Rest in peace, Rosey [April 7th, 1970 - April 17th, 2017]
Reports have surfaced that former WWE World Tag Team Champion Rosey, real name Matt Anoai, has passed away. He was 47.
Rosey competed for the WWE from 2001 until 2006, starting in developmental as one half of The Island Boys with his partner who would later be known as Jamal (who would even later be known as Umaga). The two debuted in the WWE as 3 Minute Warning, monstrous henchman for Eric Bischoff who would tire of segments and send in Rosey and Jamal to bring them to a violent abrupt ending.
When Jamal was released from the WWE, Rosey began teaming with The Hurricane in a comical but successful duo, where he morphed from being a Super Hero In Training (note the acronym) to being The Hurricane’s super sidekick! The two captured the WWE World Tag Team Championships at Backlash in 2005.
Outside the ring, Rosey was well-liked by his peers and has been mourned greatly by superstars from the WWE and in the greater Cincinnati area, where he teamed with Jamal in HWA. Rosey was the son of WWE Hall Of Famer Sika, the brother of WWE superstar Roman Reigns, and was the father of three children as well as the owner of a restaurant in Mason, Ohio. I had the pleasure of meeting Rosey several times, the most memorable of which being in 2005 shortly after he and The Hurricane won the tag titles. I recall telling him that I’d marked out for the occasion, to which Rosey said, “So did I!”
Rest in peace, Matt Anoai. You were beloved by so many, and I’m sure you’ll never be forgotten.
to build that brotherhood because if you’re that way in real life and sticking together it’s gonna help you on screen anyway. It makes your entire unit and I think that’s what helped us. That was one thing about The Shield that I really enjoyed is that like we were a real team, know what I mean like we celebrated together, we sold together, it was really cool to me. And I think that was what got us over, the fact that we treated each other like brothers. You know like, after matches carrying each other out. Seth would hug me, you know weird shit, Dean would kiss me on my friggin’ head sometimes.
