German Shepherds and their floppy ears. There is nothing I do not like about this.

I hate moving. So much. 

And I am the worst at it. Even though I’ve had a ton of practice.

UGH

Rewatching Supernatural and I just finished my favourite season, meaning more agony and tears are on the way.

Damn it, this show is so good but it hurts the soul.

okay for real why is everyone SO ANGRY that las vegas is getting an nhl team? like i understand it’s not really an ideal place for hockey but you guys are acting like the fucking world is ending

Vegas has been trying to get a NHL/NBA/MLB/NFL franchise for YEARS. I’m shocked they haven’t gotten some sort of major league franchise earlier.

Plus, hockey’s not 100 percent foreign there. They’ve had minor league hockey there for at least 20 years, between the IHL and the ECHL. (It may be the same franchise…I forget if they joined the ECHL when the IHL went belly up or not.)

I’m more shocked about Seattle and Toronto, assuming the rumors are true. Seattle’s pretty close to encroaching on Vancouver’s territory (although maybe not so much anymore with homeland security tightening up the borders). Also, can Toronto really sustain two NHL franchises and an AHL team?

wait seattle is getting one and toronto is getting another??? really???

According to the tweet that showed up on my end from SI, the league’s going to expand to Seattle, Toronto, Quebec City, and Vegas. And, I REALLY don’t understand Seattle and Tornoto, to be honest.

Anyone who is in or around Toronto understands why we’re desperate for another expansion here. Besides the obvious Leafs jokes, the organization that owns the Leafs also owns the Toronto Raptors (NBA), Toronto FC (MLS), and Toronto Marlies (AHL). They have cranked the prices so high for tickets that it is impossible to go see a game if you’re not a C-level executive. Most people have resorted to making the two hour drive to Buffalo to watch teams play, because driving to the States, paying to stay overnight, and paying to see a game is still cheaper than trying to watch a game in Toronto.

We have the highest ticket prices in the league, the highest beer prices in any arena in the league, and almost a guaranteed promise that MLSE doesn’t give a shit about the fans - up to and including a very long analysis that I won’t get into about why Toronto has barely made the playoffs in the last ten years. 

Even worse is if you’re not a Leafs fan but live near Toronto, because then paying the stupidly high prices to see your favourite team is even harder to deal with or afford. So yes, the Toronto market may seem spoiled and saturated, but trust me, it’s one of the worst current markets for fans.

Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Arlene Dickinson joins up with Canadian Women’s Hockey League

The planet’s only professional hockey league for women got a notable boost Wednesday when the Canadian Women’s Hockey League added Arlene Dickinson – wildly successful businesswoman, author, philanthropist, and TV personality on CBC’s Dragons’ Den reality investment show – to its board of directors.
Since its inception in 2007, the five-team CWHL has been making slow-but-steady inroads in the business community, but the presence on the board (which also includes Calgary Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke, CBC analyst Cassie Campbell-Pascal and Trina Crosby, mother of Sidney Crosby) of Dickinson, a savvy venture capitalist and master marketer, can only accelerate that process. Anyone who’s seen her operate on Dragons’ Den has seen a thoughtful woman well-connected to the world around her and someone passionate about more than just making a buck.
Considering the CWHL is still not close to paying its players a livable salary, there’s no way Dickinson is working with the league because its teams are about to turn a profit. She’s in it because it’s an organization that empowers women, and she’s aiming to ensure it prospers… (x)
