I seem to have failed, through all the posts and games and screaming fits, to truly appreciate one aspect of hockey’s influence on my life: stress relief. Sure I get worked up about the games – rip a pillow, maybe throw a shoe – but it vents all my work frustration at the same time. Without it, I’m really snippy. I need to run daily, faster and farther than normal, and anytime I see the Yankees on TV I start growling like a lion in the zoo.
Hockey: cheaper than therapy. Come back soon.
To break that tension, let’s ask Tumblr how our favorite NHL players are spending their days.
iCarly wins you over on the issue of his hair by strutting the rest of his impressive self.
Karl Alzner tries to distract you by walking away.
We don’t know, Karl. Mike’s got a cute date too…
Meanwhile Taylor Hall is home alone, rapping the Nicki Minaj part of ‘Beauty and a Beat’ into a wooden spoon while he bakes sad, lonely brownies. #its3012tonight
Equally sad (because RNH can’t bake) is Ebs, just watching his highlight reel and waiting for Hallsy to get to OKC.
At least Bobby Ryan has better taste in TV (I’m talking about GL, people!).
And Richie’s found someone to hate on since Crosby’s too far away.
While everyone else is in lurrrrrve and shouting it all over town – Gingeroux’s Tweeting about his girlfriend, Max Talbot’s posting photos and I heard that Rick Nash got engaged. Chuck, is there something you’d like to tell us?Tags: bobby ryan, John Carlson, Jordan Eberle, Karl Alzner, Mike Richards, taylor hall
