I’ve also been having the same thing. like, okay, when did half the people I follow become hockey fans and why was it all at the same time.

I WAS WONDERING TOO. My entire dash is hockey, all day, all night. Hockey all the time.
My dudes, for real. All at once! One day my dash was Sterek and happiness, and how it’s hockey guys being all…hockey guys. Whatever they’re like, I don’t even know, because who cares about hockey.

From what I can tell, fans of Yurie on Ice and CP started watching actual Hockey (possibly because of curiosity or because they needed more knowledge for fic writing/reading), and then people just got really into it. At least that’s what I’ve seen from the people I follow who started posting it.

So basically, a certain contingent of the omgcp fandom decided the Penguins were basically the irl Falconers and got super hardcore into watching their games. So you get a lot of Crosby as Jack, Malkin as Tater, and (not a Penguin, a Dallas Star) Tyler Seguin as Kent. And now they’ve started doing RPF. It’s getting a little extreme.
So it’s not Bing Crosby we’re talking about here. Lame, but I understand. We can’t all be swingin’ from a star, carrying moonbeams home in a jar.
Also this really isn’t making me want to even try to enjoy CP, I’ve gotta say. Invading my dash with hockey, of all sports, is so not the way to do it.

I ENVY YOU THAT YOU’VE ONLY HAD TO DEAL WITH THIS FOR SUCH A SHORT TIME. THERE’S SO MUCH CONFUSING HOCKEY *FANDOM* RANDOMNESS ON MY DASH AND THERE HAS BEEN FOR AGES. I THOUGHT IT WAS A SPORT? APPARENTLY THOUGH IT’S SMILEY GOOFBALLS IN HATS HANGING ON EACH OTHER
OKAY I LIED, IT’S BEEN LIKE SIX MONTHS AT LEAST BUT I DIDN’T WANT TO LOOK LIKE A CRAZY PERSON WHO’S BEEN STEWING IN THIS FOR MONTHS ON END UNTIL IT FINALLY BURST OUT IN A DRUNKEN TIRADE. BUT IT DID, AND I’VE HAD WINE AND WHISKEY GINGERS AND THERE’S A LOT GOING ON.
MAN, FUCK HOCKEY.
