SO TONIGHT I WENT TO MY VERY FIRST LIVE NHL GAME

SO BASICALLY I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE AND I SCREAMED A LOT AND THAT’S BAD BECAUSE I HAVE MY ARABIC ORAL FINAL TOMORROW BUT WHATEVER I DON’T THINK THE BIRTH OF MY CHILDREN WILL EVEN COMPARE TO HOW HAPPY I AM RIGHT NOW.

I WENT ALONE (which is apparently rare? i got asked like 15 times by a bunch of different guys if i was alone?) AND I ENDED UP SITTING NEXT TO A GUY WHO WAS FROM NEAR MY HOMETOWN AND REMEMBERED ME FROM WHEN I WAS IN THE NEWSPAPERS AFTER GETTING IN TO HARVARD. WHICH WAS COOL.

SO I ATE SOME PIZZA REALLY CAREFULLY BECAUSE I BORROWED A LARGE JERSEY FROM A FRIEND SINCE I DON’T OWN ONE AND DIDN’T WANT TO MESS IT UP. IT WAS LIKE A DRESS, IT WENT DOWN TO MY KNEES AND MY HANDS WERE MISSING ALL NIGHT. AND I GOT A FREE PLAYOFF TOWEL AND SWUNG IT AROUND AND ACCIDENTALLY GOT PIZZA ON IT OH WELL.

BUT THE GAME. THIS FUCKING GAME. I GOT SO ANGRY THAT TORONTO SCORED FIRST BUT WHEN WE CAME BACK WE CAME BACK HARD. MOTHERFUCKING BOSTON, MAN. AND I WANTED REDDEN TO GET A GORDIE HOWE HATTRICK SO BADLY BUT THERE WEREN’T ANY REAL FIGHTS UNTIL THE FINAL BUZZER HAD SOUNDED WHICH WAS A FUCKING SURREAL EXPERIENCE TO WATCH ON ITS OWN. I’M PRETTY SURE THE DUDES AROUND ME WERE SCARED OF ME BY THE END OF THE NIGHT.

THE GOALIES JFC. RASK WAS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG THIS EVENING, AND REMIER HAD SOME INCREDIBLE PLAYS AS WELL. LET ME JUST SAY ONE THING: YOU HAVEN’T LIVED UNTIL YOU’VE LISTENED TO AN ENTIRE CROWD MOAN “TUUUUUKKKKKKK” ALL AT ONCE.

image

THE LITTLE KID SITTING ON MY OTHER SIDE WAS A BIG SEGUIN FAN AND WANTS TO PLAY HOCKEY “JUST LIKE HIM” SOME DAY WHICH WAS FUCKING ADORABLE AND ALSO HILARIOUS BECAUSE THIS KID WAS ALSO SEGUIN’S BIGGEST CRITIC. EVERY TIME HE TURNED THE PUCK OVER THIS KID SWORE LIKE A TRUCK DRIVER.

SO I DON’T KNOW IF YOU GUYS HAD A HEART ATTACK LIKE SEVEN TIMES DURING THIS GAME BUT THERE WERE TOO MANY REVIEWS AND RETRACTED GOALS AND ALMOST-BUT-NOT-QUITE FIGHTS FOR MY LIKING. ACTUALLY I LOVED IT WHO ARE WE KIDDING I EAT STRESS FOR BREAKFAST. BUT THE CROWD DURING THOSE MOMENTS WAS INSANE. I FEARED FOR THE OFFICIALS’ LIVES.

image

AND THEN AFTER THE GAME I WENT AND STOOD OUTSIDE THE GATES WHERE THE PLAYERS LEAVE FROM FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF HOPING SOMEONE WOULD STOP. SEIDENBERG WAS THE ONLY ONE, THOUGH, AND I GOT A PICTURE OF HIM, BUT I LET A LITTLE KID TAKE THE LAST AUTOGRAPH. AND THEN IN THE T STATION SOME DUDE THREW A BRUINS PENNIE AT ME WHILE YELLING “YOU’RE HOT HAVE A SHIRT”. OKAY THEN. I HAVE A NEW SHIRT.

SO IF YOU CAN’T TELL BY ALL THE CAPS THIS WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE AND I’M PROBABLY GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT FOR MONTHS TO COME SORRY NOT SORRY XOXO

PS I SAW THIS FLY MOTHERFUCKER IN LINE FOR DUNKIN DONUTS DURING WARMUPS:
