So I watched this vid of Jake Gardiner & Morgan Rielly quiz each other and I thought it was the cutest thing.

Apparently, there are like a lot more vids now of other Leafs getting quizzed by Brooke Pashley (who, I've gathered, is a reporter/host for Leafs TV or something).

the others I really cared about:
The @BrookePashley Minute: with Phil Kessel (people say he's awkward around cameras, but I say he's really adorable)
The @BrookePashley Minute: with Tyler Bozak (when he says his greatest quality is that he's caring, I just about died)
The @BrookePashley Minute With JVR (Jen Aniston is his crush, ahhh, I can totally agree with that choice tho--I'm a total Aniston fan as well)
The @BrookePashley Minute with: Nazem Kadri (Phil's in the background the whole time and he's a lot less awkward than he was in his own interview) 
The @BrookePashley Minute with: Kuli (I really love his accent, but then again I love all accents, but he's still adorable)

Trade deadline decisions for Maple Leafs

I suppose every hockey fan has to deal with this (and I suppose the NFL too), BUT I DIDN'T KNOW I'D HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS SO SOON. WHY DOESN'T ANYONE WARN YOU ABOUT GETTING INTO SPORTS?? IT'S ALL HEARTBREAK. /ALLL/ esp. if you're following a team like the Maple Leafs. Hahahahaha, did I luck out there. But the Leafs are now my team, for better or worse.

(Okay, so they didn't win the Stanley Cup in close to a quarter of a century, but there are some teams out there in the NHL who have never won the Stanley Cup, okay, or who have won it a really, really long time ago, never to get it back again and all I'm saying is that there are probably worse teams out there to support. But if someone does support those lesser teams, I wouldn't say anything because they'd be that person's team and I would know how precious feelings all around would be. Just saying.)

Anyways, I really don't want them to get rid of James Reimer or Nikolai Kulemin or Mason Raymond or Jake Gardiner or Nazem Kadri. I'd probably care more about Bolland getting traded if I watched him more but in the four games I've watched, he hasn't really played. Though to be fair, he was on the injured reserve list for a while, and only came back for yesterday's game.

I don't think I can get away with saying I'm not a sports fan anymore. Because I just spent an hour watching the first episode of HBO's 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic: Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Detroit Red Wings.

some things I noticed while watching the Winter Classic ep:

I still maintain that I'm a casual fan though. I like watching the games——and my almost $20 subscription to NHL to catch the Canadian games should be a testament to something——but I don't care much for memorizing stats or knowing plays or really...understanding much? I guess. (Like I don't get the point of drafts at all. I know players are a commodity and because they're getting paid a shit ton of money management should be able to trade them around as though they're only chess pieces but drafting is such a *heartbreaking* concept okay, and this is coming from someone who's only been a hockey fan for some three weeks and hasn't actually had to go through a player getting drafted. Oh and icing. I totally don't get what icing as a penalty is about.)

OMG! Guys, the Patriots are in the Superbowl!!

I feel so proud.

And if I actually cared about sports and/or knew what the heck I was talking about, I'd have something more intelligent to say about it.

But, I'm giddy about this fact.

I sure hope they win.
