Have you ever realized or appreciated how beautiful hockey SOUNDS?

Like I can’t get over the sound of skates cutting through the ice, the snow spray of a hard stop, the sound of a crisp pass meeting another stick, the clang of the puck off the post, the taping of a stick, the anxious banging of a stick on the ice waiting for a pass, the thud of the puck off of a goalie’s pads… I could go on forever

*watching the winter classic with my parents, the Olympic commercial/interview thing comes on with Zach Parise*

my mom:“oooh he’s attractive”

*Patrick Kane*

my mom:“okay, even better”

*Sidney Crosby*

my mom:“oh good lord, he’s breathtaking. they clearly saved the best for last”

*my dad just rolls his eyes*
