OK, when I was first reading about this one, I got the usual excitement I get each time the PA makes a new proposal. Like, "Ooh, this is a good one! They can definitely negotiate something from this! Hockey any minute how! Weee!" But then the more I read/heard, the more I became convinced that this proposal is like the PA giving the owners the finger. I mean, obviously I hope that Snider and Lemieux have convinced like 15-18 other owners to join the anti-lockout camp, and that they will force negotiation from this proposal, and we'll have hockey by, like, end of January.. but honestly, I fully expect a flat out NO to come from the NHL any second now, and, like, Daly going "we are very disappointed, we keep giving HUGE (imaginary) concessions, but the players refuse to give an inch (just agree to indentured servitude and that owners can decide what to pay you, cattle!) and it is clear that even though we keep giving our best offers, the players keep refusing to negotiate! No hockey season for you, SO THERE!"... :/

Like, I don't even read HP fic anymore, but this is STILL the best story of All Time. OF ALL TIME.

(why isn't there HP hockey RPF? hockey players as quiddich players, pro hockey teams as pro quiddich teams... I bet quiddich players mave missing teeth and crooked noses and concussions too!..)

In every fandom I've been in, there is always a character or two that everyone writes as kinda dumb and/or weak. It's understandable, stories need a bit of comic relief, and the dumbness or weakness of one person is the easiest was to show off the intelligence or strength of others.

And always, I crave the stories that portray this character as brilliant and strong. In hockey RPF stories the weak/dumb one tends to be Patrick Kane. My personal canon is that he is actually really really intelligent, but perhaps doesn't want to be? This is what keeps getting him into trouble, of course. Only, to my chagrin, nobody writes that. Seriously, I am pretty bummed..

so there I was, wondering how on earth would bandom dudes be good at hockey by 2014? when Ryan Ross started a Bandom Dude Hockey Camp, just for me *___*


can't you see him with a C on his jersey, being all bossy? Bossy Rossy could totally be his hockey nickname...

I wonder how it affects a person, being hated from a very young age, by both ones' peers and their families.. being threatened and called names AS A LITTLE KID.. If loads of people wish you would just go away and stop "stealing their spotlight" or their kids' spotlight... and will do all the nasty mean little stuff to you on the ice from, like, the age of SEVEN. Like, hitting your wrists with their stick over and over during face-offs, aiming pucks at your face... And any time you "whine" to those who are supposed to enforce the rules, you gets shit for it, so you gotta just shut up and take it and learn to dish it back.. like, does that make one have some ...anger issues?

So, you know that fic where Eric Staal is a girl (but still captain of the Canes)? And for the playoffs, since she can't grow a beard, she dyes her hair Cane-red? I was thinking that the real equivalent of a playoff beard for a lady would be not shaving her legs and armpits, not getting her eyebrows does... because isn't playoff beard, like a statement of complete commitment to the game to the extent that one abandons all personal grooming?

(And isn't a dye job the opposite of that?)
