In a year I’ve gone from knowing the Peoria Rivermen exist to loving them dearly. This is the year I’ve gotten to know them and the year I’ve seen them go. I know maybe that doesn’t give me as much reason as some have to be sad. I feel frustrated with myself for feeling as strongly as I do about it. But I do. I can’t erase it. And I won’t.

I may have only known them for a year but I knew them. I may have only loved them for a year but I loved them. I have only a small stack of memories in comparison but they’re memories I won’t be letting go.

I have the Rivermen to thank for bringing together the group of some of my favorite people, and I have those people to thank for bringing me to love the Rivermen. This year I have grown to love them so much. I still will. Even though it’s time to say farewell to the Rivs, the great gals are for life. This year is something I won’t ever forget.

for the ever so serious facest of emotionless Russian hockey pla- wait… what?


It’s just insane because people will be all “OH THOSE RUSSIAN PLAYERS THEY DON’T CARE, THEY DON’T HAVE ANY HEART”

Then the Russian player scores a goal like that and gets really really excited about it and then suddenly the same people are like “WOAH CALM DOWN NOW”

Like I’m pretty sure those are mixed signals. lol
