powdered blue

I fucking love head canons about Jack and his magazine interviews. Here are a few of mine.

He’s been in publications like Sports Illustrated and ESPN and Rolling Stone and stuff but he was featured in Vogue too. He may not know shit about fashion but he IS Alicia Zimmermann’s son and BEAUTIFUL. So he does a beautiful shoot where he’s wearing powder blue head to toe on a minimalist set. So dreamy. They interview him specifically about how his mom has influenced him. It’s lovely.

Every time he’s interviewed for a magazine he goes out of his way to invite the journalist to his apartment. He sits in his same arm chair every time to build a routine and try and get comfortable in a situation that can be really anxiety ridden for him.

A lot of times Jack is asked questions about The Draft Incident but he purposefully makes his responses too boring or bare to print to many fans and reporters frustration.

His favorite interview he ever did was one where he just got to explain his diet and fitness plan as well as his time as a coach during his break. It’s clear that he loves kids as much as he loves the game, and when asked about one of his players who had just been drafted into the NHL he said he couldn’t have been prouder and that he always knew his kids were capable. The kid’s mom has it framed in her kitchen, and when Jack visited for dinner and saw it one night he teared up.

When he was ready, he came out on The Players’ Tribune instead of through a journalist’s words. It was important to him to express his experiences and his love for Bitty himself. The response was positive, and he even did a shoot with You Can Play to accompany the article.

He did a cover for Men’s Health unbeknownst to Bitty, and when Bitty saw a sweaty, shirtless, Jack Zimmermann looking back at the camera all he could do was text a pic with the caption “?!???!!!?!?! 😭🙌🏻🔥”. The response: “ha. Thanks. I forgot about that.”


Hemimorphite & Veszelyite

A unique and beautiful new find from China of vivid, powder-blue hemimorphite botryoids highlighted or outlined by preferential bands of blue veszelyite. The hemimorphite is translucent. Veszelyite is a rare phosphate. This find was recovered in 2008 and appeared at the 2008 Munich Show.
