So much talking head babbling about which players from Team Canada's Olympics orientation camp will actually make the final squad, and none of them seem to be taking cuteness into account. Or how much Laura loves them. Shocking oversight, I am driven to make my own list. From this roster.


In alphabetical order but numbered so I can keep track.

Goalies:
1. Corey Crawford
2. Braden Holtby
3. Carey Price

Sorry Lu! I love you too but you aren't as fuzzy as Crow, as curling-related as Holtby (nor do your eyelashes measure up, which I know is not a fair comparison for human beings), or as outrageously sexy and delightful and perfect as Pricey.

Defense:
Ugh poor defenders. They get no press and I'm always left barely knowing what they look like, even for my actual teams. Let's see who I know...
1. Travis Hamonic :DDD (BABY!!! I'm so proud of him for getting invited. I hope this inspires him and Okie into total beastmode for the beginning of the season. And that they don't then fall into a shame spiral if they aren't selected.)
2. Duncan Keith
3. Kris Letang
4. Brent Seabrook
5. Marc Staal - imaginary boyfriend Staal *___*
6. PK Subban
7. Shea Webber - mostly for cuddling Sid
And I'm short one. Doughty, Phaneuf and Vlasic (who I just discovered is a cutie) can fight it out for the last spot. I'M SORRY DEFENDERS!! Apparently all the people I've never heard of are more likely to be selected?

Forwards:
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah how can I choose just 14?? Ugh this is going to be so hard.
1. Sidney Crosby
2. John Tavares (PS guess who is bursting with pride every time someone mentions that he's a lock. All those trips to Worlds instead of making the playoffs! Also, you know, being one of the best WJHC players ever :))))))) #proudmama)
3. Patrice Bergeron - this is kind of a toss-up with Sharpie. They're both babes.
4. Jordan Eberle
5. Taylor Hall - Can Hallsy and Ebs both go? I feel like... people seem reluctant to pick them both because it's too much youth and inexperience, and world juniors seems to mean a LOT to Canadians when it comes to this sort of decision, so... But obviously they're both locks for me.
6. Claude Giroux
7. James Neal
8. Jeff Carter - I feel bad that he didn't get to go last time. And I can't bring him and not Richie, of course.
9. Michael Richards
10. Eric Staal
11. Jordan Staal
12. Martin St Louis - ok this is actually my pick for the actual tournament. I want the little old dude to make it!
13. Jonathan Toews
14. Steven Stamkos (ngl, this tweet of Jeremy Roenick's bothered me enough that I'm not totally over Stammer RTing him, even though he seems like a sweetheart and I know RTing something isn't the same as being angry enough to actually compose a tweet, and I'm sure he just is clueless, but. XP It's keeping me from getting 100% on board the Stammer train and I'm tempted to swap him out for little Matty Duchene. But who is more likely to bro around with JT? Matt will just be following Sid around like a puppy. Better bring Stamkos in case PK or Ebs don't make it. D: This is something Pietrangelo has in his favor, actually... Not that my entire world revolves around Johnny?)

Okay! Actually managed to keep it to 14 on my first pass, it's a sign!! Sorry Kuni!! Sorry Sharpie! DDD: Also sorry to fandom for the "Morning to Wake You" lols I am denying us by leaving off Rick Nash, but outside of that fic I find him incredibly... dull. But fine if he goes. I'm a million times less interested in Getzlaf and Perry now that they aren't on a line with Bobby Ryan. But actually I have feelings about almost all the forwards, I didn't even realize! It's the poor defensemen where my list only has a few points of overlap with the official lists. >:((((

Don't ask me to make those into sensible lines of any sort. DDD: I can't even figure out who is capable of not being a center?

The world of sports was friggin out of control today, by the way. Like, come on tennis, it's transfer deadline day. I need you to keep things under control. At least Ferru apparently became the fifth man to reach all four Grand Slam quarterfinals in back to back years - along with only Roger, Rafa, Novak, and Ivan Lendl. :))))) Once again, #proudmama.

I'm also super proud of my darling beloved hunky musketeer, Tommy Robredo... but I'm also quite sad for Roger? So. :/// Yeah I don't know. I became a tennis fan in 2010 so I missed the years when he was dominating and I just love him now. But I also love Tommy! Complex.

Annnnnnnnd Real Madrid. ;_________; Um. At least Kaka will be happy? I hope! Sheva's not up to anything, right? Someone get him a job at the club!!!! And I'm optimistic for Arsenal, whose lives I end up excessively invested in because my sister is so into them. But. :|||| Honestly either Perez is even worse at... everything... than we'd thought, or there's some type of sketchy background thing where the owners of Tottenham are going to give him preferential treatment in non-football business dealings or god knows what, because nothing that has happened makes sense for Real Madrid.

I've been at my parent's place for Labor Day and wasn't on the internet so much, and am left totally boggled by the entire day. But I had fun doing puzzles and stuff with my mom! I'm totally freaked out that Rosh Hashanah is on Wednesday, though - I have a serious hardcore deadline on Thursday, and I thought I'd be ok to only work one day of the long weekend, but I thought i'd be able to work late on both Tuesday AND Wednesday! And that is not the case. So tomorrow I have to get up early to go into work from Long Island, and then stay super late trying to get as much done as possible. Meeeeeep. Oh well. Hopefully I will be motivated and productive and my noggin will be firing nicely after the weekend and I'll get shitloads done and it'll be fine. >___> (Worst case scenario I skip Rosh Hashanah, which wouldn't kill me but would be a major bummer.)
