When you have your main teams you support but you also love specific players in the other teams and because you love them you kinda love their team too, so you're stuck loving all the teams like the hoe that you are
you: man, why aren’t there any out lgbt professional hockey players? wouldn’t that be so cool? also, watching nhl games on tv costs so much money! i can’t afford to buy an expensive cable plan, but i don’t want to watch games illegally… and gosh, the nhl really sucks in terms of racial diversity…. everyone is so white… i wish there was a way i could enjoy hockey without having to deal with all the problematic issues associated with the nhl…
me, an intellectual:
Now that I’ve used memes to get your attention….
1. The NWHL is super gay!!!
The NWHL is partnered with You Can Play, Kourtney Kunichika has a fiancée, and Harrison Browne is the first transgender athlete to play in a professional American sports league! And that’s not even all of them!!
2. Every nwhl game is streamed online completely free! no costs!!! legally!!! the NWHL youtube channel live streams all the games!!
3. Blake Bolden and Kaliya Johnson are both African-American women playing in the NWHL. There are also several Asian-Americans (Kourtney Kunichika included) and the top draft pick from the 2016 draft was a woman of color named Kelsey Koelzer.
“I love the smell of the ice… And the cold. The sound the puck makes when it’s sliding across the ice or when hits the net for a goal […]. I love the sound of sticks crashing against one another. The sound my skates make when I come to a hard stop. The roar of the crowd. The way I feel when i’m playing. I can do things on this ice that I can’t do anywhere else.”—

Please imagine, Bitty playing against Tater (casual falcs scrimmage? NHL Bitty AU?). Bitty, partly showing off for Jack, goes in for a check on Tater. It goes approximately like the time Johnny Gaudreau (5′8 150lbs) famously checked Dustin Byfuglien (6'5 260lbs)
