I know this one has been done before. Tim Peel and I have a history.
I SENSE FEELINGS HERE AND I DON’T WANT TO STEP ON FEELINGS.
Shanabans will remain out of love and admiration.
My good bud Patric is visiting as many of you know he is a lot of fun and likes to play jokes. Let’s play one on him. Send him a tweet @patricpersson85 asking him What his favorite Abba song is. He won’t have a clue how this started.
Oh god. 3OT.
The Blackhawks are so intent on retaining their title that they’re not going to let these playoffs end.
Of course it’s double OT because it’s the Cup.

Apparently the website doesn’t actually show the design or the description.
//Remember that time defenseman Erik Karlsson answered a whole bunch of fan mail on tumblr? // Well, we took his responses and combined it with his usual tag ”be kind to yourself.” // When you purchase a Karlssquad Mighty Llamas t-shirt, ALL proceeds (except what teespring uses to make the shirt) go to Defending the Blue Line. // DTBL is a US-based nonprofit whose mission is ensuring that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey. // Show your support for Erik Karlsson and hockey with a Karlssquad Mighty Llamas t-shirt!
Great initiative, I was asked where I would put a hockey team and I said Tibet and they should be called the Mighty Llamas (close to Dalai Lama but not him). Karlssquad is another initiative by a tumblr friend in our community. So great work for a really deserving charity.
These shirts met the goal! They should be made and sent out sometime in the next week!
Nice job, tumblr hockey fandom!
Looking forward to seeing one in person, a friend of mine in Ottawa has one coming. Really a one of kind limited edition. If I see one I will sign it if you want.
As the playoffs near, it’s easy to see how excited hockey fans on tumblr become in cheering for their favorite teams. Sometimes, this excitement spirals out of control though, and it leaves people feeling hurt and negative and like total crap. That’s where we come in!Inspired by the mantra of Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson, Project “Be Kind to Yourself” is aimed to highlight that despite our differences, we the hockey fanbase are a family and when it matters, we stand by each other.To help spread positivity, we’re asking you to submit a story telling us how hockey helped you be kind to yourself. It doesn’t need to be life changing, or the stuff of novels! It can be as simple as “It saved me from dying of boredom because tv shows aren’t my thing” and you can send in your story in two ways:
Check back on this blog for updates, and spread the word, not only to your tumblr friends, but to all hockey fans you know, lets spread the positivity :)
