i play league yes

Honestly, Riot needs an option to turn off auto fill. I don’t care if I get ten or fifteen minute queue times. The time it takes will be less than me going through a shit match where I or someone on my team got filled into a position they don’t know. At least with a longer queue time I won’t lose LP.

I don't want to seem stupid but I kinda feel a little out of the loop here...? I've been off for a bit, what's all the deal with the USA hockey? What's going on with them and the women's team?

Don’t worry anon, a lot has happened in the last few days and sometimes the hockey world is a bit of an echo chamber. So basically: 

USA Hockey and the US Women’s National Team have been in talks about equitable pay and more investment in girls development programs. USA Hockey has only been paying them $1000 a month while they are training in the Olympic camp. They can’t work and they aren’t getting paid enough, and these women don’t get paid a living wage to play hockey, so they depend on USA Hockey to help them out when they can’t work because they are at training camp for the Olympics.

The negotiations weren’t going anywhere so the national team is boycotting the women’s world championship which the US is hosting. Instead of trying to work it out with their national team, USA Hockey is trying to find a replacement team.

What they didn’t realize was that the captain of the team, Meghan Duggan, made over 100 phone calls to the entire pool of women’s hockey players in the national program.

“It’s not just about the girls you’ve seen in the media. It’s about everyone,“ Duggan said. “I felt in my gut that I had to call everyone individually and directly.” They weren’t calls to drum up support. That, they already have. It was just an effort to stay united, to say thanks for the support. It’s support that has been unanimous among the best women hockey players in this country.“There’s been no resistance. Zero resistance,” Duggan said. “Everyone knows this is the right thing to do.”

USAH sent out a form-letter email asking for them to play. They even asked a few high school seniors (who are on the U18, or under 18 team, but still, ouch). Keep in mind there’s like 400 players in the lineup before these girls, so they were turned down by hundreds of people before it got to that point.

Now they’ve actually moved on to beer league players.  

Two sources confirmed Saturday that the federation has even reached out to post-collegiate players who are playing now only in rec-league competition. One such player, who last played in college three years ago, said Saturday in a phone interview, “It’s crazy. Just crazy.”

“They said USA Hockey is having a final meeting Monday, and if the national team is still boycotting, we need you to report Wednesday,” the player added. “What I kept going back to is, ‘How do I say no, but how do I say yes?’ I mean, I just play in a beer league. I just play for fun now. I don’t train like I did in college. It’s insane.”

One of the worst things tho is we don’t know if they’ll have insurance. Hockey is a fast paced dangerous sport, and if they really are putting a team together that has high school kids and rec league players, they could get hurt really easily. 

All in all, USA Hockey would rather risk teenagers and rec players getting injured and having no insurance instead of just paying their own national team what they need to play hockey. It’s just shameful, and really reveals what they think about their own women’s team. 

If you want anymore info, I have a ‘uswnt boycott’ tag on my blog.

Alright, Overwatch fandom!  McHanzo fandom!  Whatever fandom I have to call upon.  I have a simple request for you guys.

Now, I’m a big fan of McHanzo and every now again while browsing the tag, I see this image.

Now, to those unaware, this is Yasuo, a champion from League of Legends (yes yes I play LoL.  I’d feel bad about it, except I don’t).  Specifically, this is his “High Noon” skin.  Anyway, usually when I see it in the tag, it’s usually someone saying that this is McCree’s and Hanzo’s son.  It’s easy to see why.  I mean, a cowboy samurai?  Shoot, his serape even sorta looks like Jesse’s.  The skin series is even called “High Noon”*.

*note: in case someone’s wondering, both the champion AND the skin were released long before Overwatch.

But wait… note that I said “skin series”.  That’s right, there’s others in this skin set.

May I introduce High Noon Twisted Fate…

and High Noon Jhin.

Why am I bringing this up?  Well, if Yasuo is their son, can the other two be their sons too?  Like, Yasuo very much takes after papa Hanzo and has a wind dragon, Twisted Fate takes more after Jesse and has a serious gambling problem, and Jhin hung out with Grandma Amari and Grandpa Reyes a bit too much and now he uses a sniper rifle and has an obsession with death?

Really self-indulgent post over: carry on with your lives.
