You're shaking my confidence daily  
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:
- Daniel Alfredsson with his family is the cutest thing (and proves my point that drafting and free agency are ~eeeevil~ the evilest thing)
- Drew Miller, the Red Wings forward, could pass for Ryan Gosling's twin
- 3 years since Lupul’s been with the Leafs, just info I feel I should have
- Clarkson has a tattoo of his daughter! Ahhhh!! Seriously hockey players with their families give me hearts in my eyes.
- And that was totally a Silversun Pickups song there when the Detroit Red Wings were on the plane at the beginning.
- Also hope HBO puts up the other episodes soon.

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.)
