The benches in hockey dressing rooms are built so that your feet rest on the floor with your skates on which means that there are pictures of Large Professional Athletes with sock feet dangling off of the bench and I think that is a beautiful thing.
i’m so damn proud to be part of the hockey fandom. like there are first games, last games, first goals, last time playing in an arena, first time playing in an arena, trades, retirement and no matter what team you support or who you support you will feel with the fans going through it and that unites us all in the sport of hockey. so many things have changed in the last 100 years but one thing that’ll always be here is hockey and the love that 2 nations share for it. it is absolutely unbelievable just taking a step back and thinking about your team fighting for the stanley cup and being in that atmosphere with hundreds of other fans and fans watching from around the world who share that feeling with you it’s so overwhelming and emotional with the love you have for your team and your city. once you’re in you’re never out. never give up on hockey because hockey won’t give up on you. no matter when you join or who you join, you’ll always be welcome.
