I was cruising around TSN.com and stumbled on these pictures which I happened to find hilarious. I think every girl blogger has at one time been accused of being a puck bunny, I however have gotten over the fact and actually find it funny.
A puck with bunny ears? Why did I never think of this?
This one pretty much speaks for itself.
Then me in my infinite wisdom decided to go to urbandictionary.com to see what their definition of a puck bunny was, it came up with these.
1. a woman who goes to hockey games for the sole purpose of fucking one of the players (the classic definition which doesn’t really apply to me).
2. A female, typically in her late teens to early 30s (but it can go lower) who attends hockey games, not to see a well fought game, or to see 2 goons duke it out, but just to look at the studly hockey players in the hoping that one night they’ll roll over and see them in their bed, or in his bed, and has little or no interest in the sport or the score, and when a hockey player is brought up in coversation, will commonly use the words “tight, cute, sexy, ass, arms, shoulders” at any point in 1 sentence. (Okay well…this one I won’t even get into because the last part most definitely applies to me and most of the conversations I have about hockey players. DON’T JUDGE ME, DON’T YOU DARE)
Sabres game tonight, there’s talk that Tellqvist could start on Friday against his former team, could be interesting, I’m sure he’d be quite fired up in net if he did.
So Cari and I were discussing this with Anne outside JJ’s last night after we had bid adieu to the rest of the bloggers. We were talking about how guys (not any guys in particular) seem to think that because we’re girls that we somehow know less then they do about sports. Now from the time i was very young I was raised on hockey if there was a Sabres game it was on my living room TV and no one was allowed to change the channel. In my family my mom and my brother love it as does my grandmother, my dad watches it but doesn’t get emotionally invested like the other members of my family.
But still I’ve been going to hockey games since I was little and now my family splits season tickets with my uncle so I go to at least 20 games a year and watch all the other games on TV. I know the hand motions for penalties and I know all the players, I’ve had guys behind me at the games ask what a certain call means or what icing is or off-sides is I am in no way a PUCK BUNNY. Most guys assume that because I like hockey I’m in it for the men and while yes the good looking players are an added bonus the fact that I like hockey has very little to do with that fact. I like hockey for its intensity and its ability to make me forget about everything except grown men pushing a disc of galvanized rubber around a big sheet of ice while occasionally getting it into a big netted contraption which means that team gets a point.
While Mark Mancari was up from Portland there were two guys sitting behind my mom and me discussing him. They were saying that they knew he had the fastest shot in the AHL but they weren’t sure how fast it actually was, being me I turned around and told him matter of factly that the slapshot registered at 102.8 mph which was .4 mph less then Zdeno Chara. The guy looked at me like I had grown three heads and said “wow you know a lot about hockey for a girl.” And there they are the magic words I would have been fine if he had just said that I knew a lot about hockey but then he had to go and add the words ‘for a girl’ I hate that stereotype and that’s exactly what it is a stereotype that because I have boobs and ovaries that I somehow should know less about sports then they do.
So guys if you ever meet me anywhere and want to know anything about hockey please for the love of all that is holy don’t add the words ‘for a girl’ on the end of a sentence. As a matter of fact I’m pretty sure that any of my fellow girl bloggers would appreciate it if you would refrain from using the words ‘for a girl’ and ‘Puck Bunny’ in their presence.
Thomas Vanek is as hot as a pancake (to steal a Harry Neale comparison) not only is he tied for first in goals with Jeff Carter and Alex Ovechkin (who has unsurprisingly caught up in goals scored) he’s been named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team.
For me the actual All-Star game is boring because we all know it’s going to be a high scoring game with very few penalties, very few hits and no fights (not that I can remember at least). Now that’s not to say that I’m not going to watch it because I will but I’d much rather watch the skills competition which I believe to be the most exciting part of the All-Star break.
Now as Cari said in a previous post we are trying to make this blog less puck bunny and more intelligent hockey discussion which means that I have to curb those puck bunny tendencies that seem to want to surface every time Paul’s name is mention. They include giggling, swooning and making keening noises when someone mentions his name or when he’s on the ice during a game. I lead a sad and pathetic life, don’t judge me. Now just because we’re saying that we’re going to try and make this blog not so puck bunnyish doesn’t mean that it’s not going to be puck bunnyish some of the time because we’re girls with hormones and lots of ’em.
Back to intelligent hockey, now I don’t know if any of you have heard about the live chat that the Buffalo News hosts Thursday mornings but if you haven’t it’s basically a question and answer session when fans send in their questions and Bucky Gleason answers them. One question in particular caught my eye someone asked what was up with Pat K. considering they said he would be out for three weeks after being put in a hard brace for his neck injury and it’s already been two weeks with no word as to a date for a return. Bucky said in response that it’s a ligament in Pat’s neck that has been giving him trouble since being suckerpunched by Denis Gauthier. Correct me if I’m wrong but the Sabres haven’t actually come out and said what’s wrong with Kaleta’s neck so at least now we know it’s not a concussion or something really serious like a cracked vertebrae. The live chat is still up on Buffalo News.com under Sabres Edge for anyone who is interested.
