Thinking that hockey season is just a few short weeks from coming to a close is really depressing. Myself, Tina, and all other hockey fans around the world have to wait until September just for our favorite groups of guys get back together for training camp. Then, we have to wait another month for the regular season to officially start. That’s just so far away!
But then again, it’s SUMMER!
So when there isn’t hockey on tv, what is a girl to do? Oh yeah! Get on social media and find things related to hockey!
Like, “How To Be a Hockey Player” for all you summer / beer leaguers out there.
Or, “How The Playoff Beard Came To Be”
Or, there that whole, follow hockey players on social media to see what they’re up to. Because why not live vicariously through them?
Seriously, I wish I was in Matt Duchene’s shoes, hanging out with country singers in my spare time.
But let’s be honest, we’re way more excited for the new NHL season to start, especially when we have no stock in the Stanley Cup Final. Yet, I will be watching every single game, including tonight’s Game 7 between the LA Kings and Chicago Blackhawks.
P.S. – Go Hawks!! (because Patrick Kane is on a whole other level)
So during this all too long wait, players go to training camp. My particular favorites are Andy O’Brien:
And then, there’s Gary Roberts’ group / Biosteel #CAMP
To say the least, I’m excited for #CAMP 2014 and all things related to hockey players training. If it meant I could hang with those guys, then count me in for insane workouts and a strict diet.
As much as I love summer, I love hockey season even more. So I’ll enjoy the last few games before it’s 3-4 month hiatus.
