Normal Person:“What’s your favorite season?”

Me:*stares intensely at them for a second*

Me: “Hockey season”

Not just anybody can be a hockey fan, this breed of human is cut from a rare cloth.
One who can endure 82 games of the highest highs and lowest lows
This is complete dedication to a sport and a life style that we love
The rest of the world rejoices at the arrival of summer but not us
Its arrival means a lonely 4 months without ice
But every October when our men of winter return so does the fire in our hearts
The return of hockey makes it burn like surface of the sun
The only fire that will never melt ice

Here’s to waiting for October
