Hockey players are in phenominal shape. They're practicing and working out constantly when they're not playing. Take a look at the last few ESPN Magazine body issues and tell me Tyler Seguin and Hilary Knight aren't completely ripped. On the other hand, you have me.

8 takeaways from the 1st episode of the newest edition of 24/7- Toronto Maple Leafs/Detroit Red Wings (possible spoilers, but really who can do this show justice with only words?):
I've been a hockey fan for as long as I can remember. This damn sport consumes my life. I've devoted so much time, energy, money, and patience to hockey, it's hard to remember a time that I wasn't scheduling my life around a game.
And I know I'm not the only one like this. One look at my timeline and you see wannabe reporters, amateur statistians. There's no shortage of internet fights over Corsi, feminsm, intangebles, class. It's exhausting, really! Everyone has an opintion, everyone wants to fight yours, and if no one is fighting you, CLEARLY YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!
But occaisonally I step back and realize no matter how old I get, this will forever be me, deep down inside.
And you're no different than me.
