 Some good news: Yesterday I went to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the hollywood bowl. My step dad and I had an EXCELLENT dinner at the elephant bar in the lakewood mall ( I had some delicious tofu with vegetables and my stepdad had really good ahi tuna something and artichoke dip) before we took the park and ride bus up to the bowl. We found out midway that ZZ Top would be opening and I was so happy that I didn't have to sit through Joe Cocker.

I am also going down to San Diego with my LA peeps for the Empires concert/potluck/hang out session. 

BAD NEWS: The Giants only have to win 1 of 3 games and they've lost two. So fuck my life I am so annoyed and stressed that I am going to do a hockey goalie post to cheer myself up. 

I would do a goalie primer but it would basically just be "Goalies are the drummers of the team and are very odd ducks. They are also my favorites" So consider yourself primed.

Budaj (Slovakia, Backup goalie for my Avalanche) staring down a ref at IIHF Worlds

My IIHF French Worlds Team's Goalies:

Bitchfacing like a pro.

"Casse toi!"

Other French Goalie: Cristobal Huet from the Chicago Blackhawks with the cup at the Eiffel Tower. Bad ass

Jonas Hiller always has the best masks

but my KHL team's goalie's mask has kitties on it so...

I could probably do an entire goalie mask spam so I better stop before this turns into one.

My original Goalie loves:

Patrick Roy, Canadiens and then the Avalanche. Hates: rules and the red wings. Loves: punching people in the head and winning.

Guy Hebert: Hates: The ridiculous original ducks uniforms

Some of my favorite bb!Goalies:
Tuukka Rask (Finland, Boston Bruins). Hates: Milk crates, stupid refs. Loves: Sparkly helmets, stretching knit wear, tennis.

You can tell that his stretching pays off.

Rocking his sparkly mask and the butterfly style. Boo yah. 

Tuukka has a fierce bitch face but he's usually pretty cuddly.

Except when refs piss him off and he throws milk crates everywhere.

There is a video. If you need it let me know.

His knitwear inspires me to knit more. I want to mail him a box of ridiculous sweaters.

Knitwear in Belfast

in ridiculous knitwear next to his brother ( who just got drafted by Nashville).

Antti Niemi (Finland, Formerly on the Chicago Blackhawks, Now on the devil SJ Sharks): Hates: Having refs hands down his pants. Loves: Being bouncy, group hugs, beards.

Niemi has put up with some shit this season.

Like refs hands (and heads) down the pants. 

Loosing his helmet in the middle of plays (and soldiering on like a TROOPER)

Getting run over (and losing his helmet again):

But it's ok. His team gives him cuddles to make up for the shenanigans. (I hope he gets moved back to Chicago. This Sharks bs is just sad)

And he gets love from other goalies (Like Nabby, who is off the sharks now and CKA St Petersburg)

I could probably go on with this forever but I have to go eat and do more reading before tomorrow.

I would have loved to see that concert. We missed the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show this year because it was the day we got back from Disney World and there was just no way. He was playing with Crosby Stills, and Nash for our date, I haven't seen them in so many years. And omg, ZZ Top, I haven't seen them in forever either. Glad you had a nice time :)

Ah. CSN would have been pretty sweet to see too.

I've never seen Petty or ZZ Top so it was nice to finally see them live and have them rock it out

Tom Petty! ZZ Top!

also also, goalies = drummers might be teh best comparison ive heard, and it all makes sense! although lol milk crates and heads down pants? thats a new one.

why would teh ref need to put his head down there anyway? what is that even?

*nods* i came up with an entire band/hockey analogy at some point, but I am probably never talking about that one.

Well. The puck went MIA and apparently the ref decided to MOLEST THE GOALIE. >:| Poor Niemi. It was during playoffs too. What a bad time to fuck with a goalie's head. He won the cup anyway but still

id probably get lost at some point, then again, hockey might make more sense :P

ahahahaha omg, couldnt he have just asked? hey do you think a puck mightve found itself into your pants? ahahah thought that might be more of a come on (or are you just happy to see me, ahahaha omg)

\o/\o/ im glad he won anyway :D

Haha! Hockey is like soccer on ice!

The puck was tucked in his jersey. They were digging around for a few minutes before Jonny Toews just skated over and tugged his jersey and it fell out. I was like "giiiiiiiiiiiiirl." I thought it was highly inappropriate to maul the goalie like that.

\o/ Me too!

ahahahaha that actually helps some!

dude seriously, it is never appropriate to put your face down someones pants unless blowjobs are involved.

It really does! There are offsides and everything! Though, hockey off sides are waaaaaaaaay clearer.

Seriously. When it happened I was like "if you have to stick your hand down the pants of the goalie to find the puck that's the first clue that you should be letting the goalie find the puck."

Fuck YES, ZZ Top.
And man, I would've loved to go to the Empires thing, it looked like it was so much fun. Stupid band, stop being far away. Jerks.

I appreciate you teaching me about goalies and their bitchfaces, by the way! And their sparkles and kitten helmets! And their stretchiness. Mm, approved.

I thought it was going to be hella awkward but most of the people who showed up were friends of mine. Since when have I been social?

No problemo. They are all special people.

Here is another picture of bb!tuukka stretching
