Re: Hockey! NHL, KHL, AHL, and Every Other HL

Well, I can't say I expected a first-round exit, but it at least looks like we went out with honor tonight. I wish I weren't currently so exhausted and messed up from allergies to where I had to go to bed before the end of the first period.

If I were any bigger than I already am, I'm afraid I'd go from just clumsy to outright destructive. I'm fine with my current size, even if it means no big hugs.

Geese are kinda terrifying in Equestria. They look like turkey vultures to me. You say that like real geese are less evil.
