 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.

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.

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.
