I had all intentions of writing about the Bantam Draft today, which is really important for the Chiefs in terms of building and adding new talent. But as far as I am concerned, I have more pressing matters to address.
Let’s knock off this slagging on hockey players ok? More specifically, doing it in a manner that means taking a dig at women. Allow me to illustrate, calling the Sedin Twins the Sedin Sisters. Referring to Sidney Crosby as Cindy. Criticizing players by saying they are being a pussy or bitching out. I refuse to put up with this. It’s not cute. I get that hockey is aggressive blah blah blah, trash talk blah blah. But come on now, be clever! Say something witty, it will win you more phone numbers than being an un-evolved lunkhead. I am saying this for your benefit. Join me in modern society. It’s a wonderful place and we have cable internet and so many PopTart flavors.
It’s an insult to how amazing women are. You want to say a player is fighting like a girl? Have you seen an honest to god chick fight and not the porno pillow fight variety? Yeah it’s scary. Three words: Lee Press Ons. Us ladies have enough to deal with, such as “am I a harlot for liking tank tops and lower necklines?” “am I betraying my gender by listening to Lil Kim?” We don’t need dudes mouthing off with a “these broads amirite?!” Hugh Hefner attitude. And do not get me started on the war brides of the Girls Next Door…
And before you think I am some feminazi boner killer, I’d inform you I am quite the modern gal. I see no issue with shaving my legs on the regular and calling myself a feminist. I am proud of what I can do on my own. Something my grandmother’s generation isn’t exactly used to. Think of your amazing mothers and sisters and the shit they put up with. You want to be that guy? Man up, moose.
I absolutely love and adore hockey. I am protective of it. I understand the complexity of fighting and politics of fighting. I supremely dislike the presence and the idea of ice girls in hockey, but I get the dollar signs involved. I adore the camaraderie of the rink. The seeing the regulars and asking how they are. My arena feels like home home even though the rosters are prone to numerous shake ups every season. I like wearing a hoodie and jersey for the bulk of the year and fishing out programs and ticket stubs out of the bottom of my enormous purse.
Is my asking you to consider your mouth so much?
So the next time you think about hating on another player, think about your words and would you say it to any of these dames;
I didn’t think you would.
