Just a quick life update about hockey, work, relationship stuff, and traveling! Think about it as that one overloaded, poorly-written filler anime episode where nothing makes sense. Then again, it is my life, so, it often doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. That ain’t changin’. Anyway, I got my coffee here so let’s get chattin’! HCKY HCKY LIFE HCKY The live-post monster returns. I have two teams, but for now, I will be referring to the Kings. Mah boys are back with a new third jersey…Continue Reading “Life 25/8: Hockey, Work, Love, & Travels”

I finally had spent some well-earned vacation time on a mid-week trip. Just going to preface that I have been so busy since… well… January of this year. I believe the last you heard from me was my trip to Denver, last December. Even so, that post was incomplete. And my god, a lot has happened. (Isn’t it kinda obvious)? Thankfully, hockey is just around the corner! So league-craziness will ensue sooner than I expect. I can’t wait to sport the team swag once again….Continue Reading “Us-Time & Seattle Trip”

This is specifically about my trip.Go here if you would like to read about the Kings vs Avalanche game! A handful of people wonder why I travel for just hockey, which if you know me there’s more to my travels beyond chasing a puck. Having a hockey game makes it easier to commit to a date and plan things accordingly, especially as a solo-weekender. I’m not huge on wild-/excursion-heavy trips as it is, so I’m completely content with the game being my “most eventful event.”…Continue Reading “Denver, Colorado”

Apologies! I have been stupid busy with life—work, being sick (twice), prepping for potentially significant life changes (which has proven to be a lot more difficult than I had projected). I haven’t been able to catch broadcasts for hockey games I’m not in attendance, nonetheless keeping up-to-date via Twitter. Lately, when I get home, I crash like an old lady, or I’m working on freelance and personal projects until two in the morning. If I’m feeling burnt-out, I stream a PS4 game (as my friends…Continue Reading “Live with a Side of OMFG”

During my stay in Vancouver, I discovered my Airbnb host was a Winnipeg Jets fan. I mean, he had a flag in his living room, hanging on the window to his office. How much he was into hockey, I wasn’t really sure, but based on the brief conversation I had with him, it was enough for him to state being Jets fan was better than being a Canucks fan, and saying the Kings were getting old and slow. I know age is a “clear” factor…Continue Reading “Age is… Just a Number?”

Whoo! Finally a Penguins game I can write about, and I’m personally happy that I can. I’ll be honest, I was worried about going to Canada to see my team play as the visiting team and potentially losing, or at worst it not being an exciting game to watch. Boy, I was wrong to doubt them. 🖤💛🖤💛 #Pens pic.twitter.com/mDTHItw9Oo — Kim O'Reilly (@BravetheIce) October 28, 2018 First things first, it’s sad to say that the production value of Rogers Arena’s presentation is superb if I…Continue Reading “Penguins @ Canucks Shutout”
