I have never been a huge hockey fan. Football? I’m borderline obsessed. Baseball? Helloooo, Derek Jeter. But hockey was never really my calling. I could never find the puck when it was on TV, I still have no idea what icing means, and I didn’t really like cheering for goals which only happens three times a game.
But, Maryland is full of hockey fans and I was apparently highly attracted to them because every single person I dated liked the Washington Capitals. So I found something that made it worth watching: Brooks Laich.
I die. Anyway, when Colin and I started dating he kindly asked that I swoon over one athlete to keep his ego in tact and my choice between Derek Jeter and Brooks Laich had to happen. We all know who won.
Side note: Brooks Laich is now dating a 25 year old named Jules that is not me. ARE YOU KIDDING ME.
I decided to convert to the New York Rangers side about 2 years ago and am LOVING IT. Maybe that’s because they’re in the playoffs, but whatever. I like to win.
Game 7 is tonight against the Flyers and my jersey is outdated thanks to the trade of Captain Callahan. I need a new rangers shirt before the game starts! I chose the retired captain’s jersey because they can’t trade him, right?
LET’S GO RANGERS,
Lets be friends!
