List of my favourite little hockey things

  • The tiny jump refs do when the puck comes near them
  • The camera in the goal that is supposed to capture nice shots when people score but is perfectly positioned to show off goalies’ butts. In my house it’s called the “butt cam”
  • When players in the background fall over for seemingly no reason
  • That thing when players are lying on their stomach like penguins but are still trying to be helpful
  • Martin Jones
  • The corners of the rink when players skate past that they’re reflected on all the panels and it just looks cool?
  • Just, the whole checking thing. They all look so graceful skating around on the ice and then they just… crash into one another… I love it it’s hilarious
  • Canada
  • Face offs. This concept is amazing. The ref is basically throwing the puck in and saying “good luck”
  • That little “well, fuck” moment when a hockey stick breaks
  • That snow that comes up when players stop suddenly
  • When goalies end up in weird positions like

“paint me like one of your French goalies”

I love hockey, guys

So this is thanks to @wheeloffortune-design’s art/AU proposal about a world where Jack doesn’t play hockey and is a chubby history nerd. I got thinking about him as Bitty’s French tutor who got dragged unwillingly into a Youtube series, and @udnoestaaqui proposed that the series’ viewers had trouble figuring out if it were fiction or reality, and well…. (Thanks to Talhi for help with the French!)


You really can’t blame them for wondering. Jack Zimmermann has an online photography portfolio that says he’s doing a minor in Fine Arts at Samwell, and he (along with Larissa Duan) is listed as a camera operator for fellow Samwell student B. Knight’s self-produced documentary Patriarchy In/Action. Fans can point out that there are camera angles and tricks he seems to enjoy in his photography that are used in Cuisiner en Français but have never been seen before in Check Please!  It would make sense if a long-time Youtuber like Bitty had teamed up with a fellow Samwell student and budding auteur and tried to make the next social media sensation.

Not to mention? It’s so meta. It works on so many levels.

Kent Parson positivity time

Sometimes Kent spends time with the very little Lil’ Aces, the ones who have just upgraded from Learn to Skate 3 and started learning the basics of hockey. They adore him and don’t really understand who he is other than “Hockey Kenny”. His favourite thing is letting one hang off each elbow and skating laps around the rink.
