not talking hockey

anonymous asked:

Man I love your blog so much! I swear your AUs are the only thing that make hockey season being over bearable. Like everyone else just stops talking about hockey! I just wish the Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin tag didn't have to die. I'm glad your still writing about Sidgeno and Nicky/Ovi!! Thank you so much 💜

Tonight I was working in the penalty box at my brother’s hockey game when one of the guys from the opposing team got a tripping penalty. So, as my job requires I have to get his jersey number so I can record it and put it up on the score board with his penalty. I asked him for his number and…well…he gave it to me. His phone number

Poor kid went beet red after I explained I meant his jersey number, not his phone number. I talked to him after the game to make sure he was all good and such, and he said, oh my god, “keep the number, just in case you’re ever looking for anything besides a jersey number.”

Smooth as fuck.

Jack Zimmermann on drunk history.

So, we’re talking years down the line. Stanley cup champion Jack Zimmermann has come out, married Bitty. They are both degrees of celebrity and Jack entertains people with random historical rants on twitter. Like, there’ll be nothing for two months then a mass of tweets about some battle you’ve never heard of then nothing again for weeks or whatever.

And the drunk history people approach his agent who turns it down because Jack and alcohol but Jack finds out. And he’s like, I see where you’re coming from but I’m in a good place and within limits I’m willing to do this. So the drunk history people have to agree to not push him to drink more, Bitty and Shitty are both going to be there but he’s basically up for this.

And everyone but everyone is expecting uptight hockey robot Jack Zimmermann being, like, 110% intense about hockey history or something.

Instead they get Jack Zimmermann speaking about historical gay romance, lying in his husband’s lap and keeping interupting his own stories to tell Bitty just how much he loves him. Bitty is delighted. Shitty cries at the beauty of it. The world loves it. When he sobers up again Jack is kind of shy about it in a pleased way. Like, if you mention it to him he blushes and smiles and talks about hockey at you.

It’s adorable.

Crosby said he’s focused on the task of learning his linemates. The top line of Crosby, Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary has been their most dynamic the past month. It hasn’t come together organically though.

Crosby talks. A lot.

“I’m probably annoying in their ears,” he said. “But it’s so important for me to be able to understand what they’re thinking and what they’re seeing out there so I can get to the right spots.”

wow a sudden update and it’s also a prequel of the previous update! way to twist things

anyway!! I thought that noah hadn’t enough screen time and this popped up without even noticing… (it’s a bit rushed though, you can see it)

this is set before this and this comic, nhk trophy was before cup of china where mamoru won his 8th gold

we talked about an hockey team that is noah’s biggest fan club and i couldn’t wait to put them in the story as I sketched their profiles some time ago already!

they are a college hockey team from muenchen, germany, that shares its ice rink with a few figure skaters, included noah. like most of us, they were totally smitten by his lovely way of… existing. they are very supportive and if they have time and money they go to see noah’s competitions (as noah goes to watch their matches if he has time).

but back to the main story!  the schedule of the grand prix of figure skating is the following:

the skaters compete in three cups instead of only two because of plot reasons. (it was my mistake during the early stages of the story)

Patrick Kane talks about his hat trick and the first line (x)

So I finally went through omgeverythingplease and here are things that I didn’t know
  • Bitty is OBSESSED with food. OBSESSED.
  • Boy has a *problem*
  • Like I know we like to headcanon that Bitty goes into some sort of media, but he’s more likely to become a food critic. Basically he’s more into the “baking” part of “baking vlog” than the “vlog” part.
  • Holster is a grumpy messy bitch.
  • For real, the team seriously debated who was grumpier: Jack or Holster
  • (for like, a hot second, before the answer became obvious)
  • (It’s Jack. Jack is the grumpiest)
  • Ransom and Bitty are very close friends. Close enough that Bitty chirps Holster that he’s being replaced via tweet.
  • Ransom and Bitty get PSLs from “ ‘Bucks”.
  • That is a quote. Eric Richard Bittle has called Starbucks, ‘Bucks.
  • (I bet he calls Target, Tar-zhay too)
  • This one was a bit more analytical: we found out about Jack coaching peewee via Bitty’s twitter
  • Bitty is the one who tells us that the Jack says the kids call him “Coach Z”
  • Because Bitty is the one who typed out the tweet, if the kids called Jack “Coach Zed”, he would have spelled out “Zed.”
  • Therefore we can assume that the kids called Jack “Coach Zee” and not “Coach Zed”
  • However this revelation by Jack was immediately followed by a debate over Zee vs. Zed. So who really knows?
  • I still don’t know how either of them pronounces “pecan”
  • More after the cut because this is getting long

NHL Playoff Teams Ranked by Name and Logo

Washington Capitals: Their logo has a hockey stick as a “t” that’s so clever! 8/10

Toronto Maple Leafs: Plural of “leaf” is “leaves”. Bad grammar, but nice logo so 5/10

Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins don’t play hockey, that’s silly. (but if they did, that’s for sure what they’d look like) 7/10

Columbus Blue Jackets: Reminds me of yellow jackets, the wasp. But their logo is very patriotic and I hear they have a cannon. Truly embodies the American spirit 8/10

Montreal Canadiens: What is a “hab?” Still not sure about these guys 6/10

New York Rangers: I’m not 100% sure they’re not a government agency. 2/10

Ottawa Senators: Isn’t senators a U.S. thing? The old white dudes that pass laws? Not sure what they’re going for here 3/10

Boston Bruins: Logo looks like a basketball, which is deceiving 4/10

Chicago Blackhawks: Nope. Offensive. Would have been cooler if it was a real hawk. 0/10

Nashville Predators: That tiger’s teeth are far too big for its mouth. Looks menacing though. If I were an opposing team, I’d be scared of that. 7/10

Minnesota Wild: What is their mascot? Is it wearing a hat? I can’t tell but it’s something really fucking wild-looking. 10/10

St. Louis Blues: Music note? OH BLUES MUSIC I GET IT. That’s clever 7.5/10

Anaheim Ducks: Clever “d”-as-a-duck-foot design, but would prefer to see a REAL duck 5.5/10

Calgary Flames: Did they design their logo on Microsoft Paint? Could be better 4/10

Edmonton Oilers: Logo looks more like an oil company than a hockey team. 5/10

San Jose Sharks: SHARKS!? Hell yeah. Sharks are so cool 11/10
