I’m very happy with the Trollshaw Farmers right now.

I’m giving myself some play time in writer’s land and coming up with a bunch of hockey team names based on various allies, villains and locations in Middle Earth. If anyone wants to throw suggestions at me, ask box is always open for you!

Hockey is all good! I love hockey. Born in Detroit but there are so many good teams now. :)

Oooo, Red Wings *hiss* Just kidding :) My college coach was from Detroit and we loved to jab at each other. I think this playoff season has some serious potential. 

Bless everyone who sticks with me during playoff hockey. It’s the first time in several years that the Avs have made it and I have a lot of emotions about everything.

Roy is the best coach ever because he spent so many years behind a mask I don’t think he can control his reactions to anything.

I get to design fictional helmet art based on dwarven and hobbit imagery. I LOVE MY LIFE

Honestly, I love the fights. They are intense and exciting.

And somehow I keep seeing Thorin like a young Gretzky. Powerful, yet really swift. He dominates the…

Suddenly I’m picturing Thranduil and his elves being another team that are the Company’s most hated rivals, and Azog just being that one asshole on a separate team that Thorin loathes with a passion, enough that they get into A LOT of fights. More than with Thranduil.

I’m not even a sports person period, but I’m getting super excited about this AU.

Oh, there are plans for the elves. I’ve already created a league structure with teams. But exactly how all the characters will be interacting will remain a mystery for now :)

Yes! That sums up Thorin nicely. 

And I didn’t see that note about Dwalin, though I’m glad I was on the same thought as you! :) 

Yes Balin would do well as a Left. For some reason he reminds me of Gordie Howe and Bobby Orr.

Maybe it’s the age?

And yes fights are sort of essential to the sport, as long as they are done with the rules still in place. Because even in a fight, there are still rules that the players seem to follow. A hockey code of sorts. 

There’s honor in it all. :)

Ah…hockey….I’ve been far too deprived this season.

Hehehehe, I meant my private notes on my computer. You must be psychic. Balin is going to have that elder statesman aura that the truly great players acquire when they pass 37/38 and are still dominating. One of my favorite hockey tropes.

The Code is real, if unwritten, and doesn’t really line up with the official rules at all points. There are some articles floating around the web about it, though, if you’re interested. For the most part, enforcers stay within the Code, and there is an honor attached to the role of enforcer. Step outside, and you get Todd Bertuzzi or Marty McSorley branded as representatives for all hockey by people who don’t know what they’re talking about. Azog fits into that role perfectly, of course.
