Things I learned during the All-Star Weekend

Despite not having anyone I really really liked at the All-Star Game this year, I really enjoyed it. I'm so happy that TSN did the coverage of the fantasy draft because they made it fun and Versus would have just been... boring and lame.

Anyway, I learned a lot! Here's what I learned/observed:

  • Matt Duchene is really stupid. Like Beavis and Butthead stupid.
  • Karlsson looks like the kind of girl I would have had a group crush on with my friends in primary/secondary school.
  • Brent Burns looked briefly sultry as he skated in front of Tim Thomas while Thomas was being interviewed. I totally fucked up joolzie's entire world view with this observation.
  • When Jeff Skinner smiles, he really really really looks like Jonathan Tucker (this actor I like). Seriously, look. This fucked me up every time I saw Skinner.
  • I hate Emrick. I hate that he's fucked up the Stanley Cup Final and any other major NHL event for me for the past few years. Not completely ruined, but made less special, and goddamnit I love hockey so much that it pisses me off. :P
  • Patrick Kane is like a light in my life. Who knew I would enjoy watching someone descend into degenerate lechery quite so much?
  • Couture with a nice goal in the elimination shootout! :) Boyle with the awesome suggestion that Subban wear Skinner's jersey for the breakaway challenge.
  • Being a fan of comics, I wanted to like the Guardian Project thing. I mostly just felt kind of awkward. But I guess I'm not big into superhero comics in general. *coughs*
  • The Sedins saying "pick us" was followed by "OR WE WILL DESTROY YOUR PUNY PLANET" (in my mind).
  • I was really happy for Kopi! But slightly saddened that he's starting to look more like a human.
  • For a very brief, almost infinitesimally short moment, when Eric Staal was thanking the fans at the beginning of the draft, and he turned his head and was transitioning between smiles, he very vaguely resembled abby20. (I am now dead to her)
  • Toews looked like he was kicking back with a beer at the 2nd intermission and holding it in front of his crotch.

I am saddened that mini big bang fics will actually be posted on 2/1, which is a day later than I thought. I want my Miller Time, damn it! :P

I thought the same thing about Skinner too!

It's crazy freaky! Where do you know Jonathan Tucker from?

I plan on posting mine at 11:59pm on the 1st. This beast needs to die.

I missed Tazer with his "beer". And I agree about Kaner's lechery; it was a pleasure to see first hand.

Also, Emrick can go die. THE END.

Wait, you mean on Tuesday night? Or tomorrow night? I'm probably posting mine tomorrow around midnight.

It was probably an energy drink or something, but I like thinking of it as beer! And oh man, Kane was hungover most of the time ahahahaha.

Is there really nobody else they could get to do these things? :( They don't even have to be really good, just not... annoying. Argh.

Aw, I don't think Duchene's stupid. He's just reeeeeally dorky, in that nerdy way where it's awkward even to laugh at him.

Well, I generally find stupid an attractive trait in hockey players, so perhaps in this case he's not so much stupid as he has the Colby Armstrong thing going on. :P

The draft was the most adorable thing I've seen in just about forever.

Awwww, I liked Duchene and his insistence that EVERYONE EVERYWHERE hear his bad joke.

OMG he TOTALLY DOES look like Jonathan Tucker!!!!!


The TSN coverage made me so happy. They totally have the right irreverent tone to pull that kind of thing off.

Okay, keeping in mind that I love people like Jason Arnott, stupid is not a bad thing in my world. ;) But after reading Kate's comment I realized that Duchene is just sort of Colby Armstrong-like.

IT'S SO FREAKY. Cos' the resemblance is not quite there when he's being serious, then he'll smile and it's like, OMG IT'S JONATHAN TUCKER!!!

(Deleted comment)
Bahahahaha, I looked at Karlsson and went "wow, 12-year-old me would have thought this guy was really cute!"

Also, since you mentioned Butthead -- totally thought the Oilers' kid (whose name I can't remember) looked like Butthead in his mugshot.

i need to watch the game still. i think cbc had curling on instead of the beginning though haha. i too enjoy patrick kane and dont want to!

He is so horrible that he's awesome. I love him so much.


Yeah, my fic's getting posted at the last possible minute on Tuesday. I was too optimistic about my degree of doneness.

Eee, I'm just happy that it's going to be done!!! I guess I will just have to re-read SDQ's fic 32020770374 times while I wait for you to post yours.

I am really afraid you are going to be horribly disappointed.

I will not! I expect to see that fic first thing in the morning! First thing!

Why do you hate Emrick? I loved him at the Olympics, at least he gets the excitement and doesn't just robot his way through games. He sounds vaguely demented at points, but idk, I generally enjoy his games. :(

Oh, I hate his voice. Like, if he said what he did and didn't have that horrible voice, that would probably solve everything right there. I'm not fond of his attempts to say "clever" things, but at least he knows his stuff.
