But thanks to my fellow hockey-loving-people on YouTube, they have provided me videos to help cheer me up or at least allow me to bond over how stupid this lockout has become.
1. A girl spoofs Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" about being completely heartbroken. The video has hockey player cutouts and ice cream, pretty much describes how I feel 100%. She has become my hero.
"And I would be tossing back a million Gin and Sprites, til I thought I could take home a Jet... I couldn't."
These two guys are amazing. Just like the Sh!t Girls Say video, it details all the little sayings and beliefs that hockey fans all over the country won't be thinking or saying out loud...ever!
"Hockey jerseys make me look so frumpy, I hate them."
"Ugh, I miss stadium food."
"Hockey's too slow anyway, I prefer major league baseball."
So I am hoping to laugh my way through this depression... true, there is always college hockey, my boyfriend's league games, and ice cream. That's a pretty great combination, but I need to be spoiled and see some Red Wings action.
Doesn't help that my Red Wings' calendar in my office cubicle stares at me all day. Come on, NHL lets pull this together! I need a legit hockey fix.
Anyone else upset about the lockout?
