staygold-kanerboy asked: RENE BOURQUE JUST SCORED A BEAUTY AND I THOUGHT OF YOUUUU

THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY. Both for Rene and for me to be associated with him by you!

dannybrioche asked: timmys pretty much took over rhode island for a while but then dunkin came back with a vengence and there was absolutely no change in the shittiness of the twos coffee and donuts

I mean, I cannot speak to the coffee of either establishment, because I am a snooty tea drinker, but their donuts are definitely the same level of bad. I remember when the Tim Horton’s opened in Union Square and my office had a “taste test” between Timbits and Munchkins and my verdict was “somehow they both taste like the same type of paper.”

Anyways, I love the idea that Rhode Island is the battleground where Tim Horton’s and Dunkin are going to duke it out for eternity. 

Everest Base Camp after the avalanche (x)
Right now there are 13 confirmed dead from EBC. I cannot emphasize how troubling it is to see this much death this early in an Everest season (there is only one Western team there right now). It’s a bad sign for the season to come and, more importantly, a really bad sign about how rapidly the glaciers in the Himalayas are melting.

The weird moment where a bunch of people into hockey dudes banging each other all gleefully reblog a post with an old white guy making a casually homophobic gesture. 

spatzenhaus asked: OMG, tim hortons is a coffee and bake shop?!? tumblr had me half convinced it's a sport equipment store selling hockey stuff o.O (I was too lazy to google...). I mean everyone always said "it's so canada" and I was like "so it's something hockey?!?". learn something new every day XD.

Omg that’s amazing! Tim Horton’s is a doughnut and coffeeshop, traditionally, that has branched out into bagels and sandwiches and soup stuff. It’s not particularly quality food, and is super high calorie, but it’s cheaper than your average fast-food option and at least feels slightly healthier. 

It was opened by the former (now deceased) hockey player, Tim Horton (shockingly), and so that’s why it’s associated with hockey. They do a lot of joint promotional stuff with the NHL, as well. But mostly it’s just ubiquitous in Canada. Every small-town will have one, every highway stop will have one. Basically if you’re on a road trip through Canada and you need to pee, you find the next Timmies.

For fellow Americans, after many conversations with Canadian friends, I believe the best analogy is:

Tim : Canada :: Dunkin Donuts : New England 

This is mostly based off cultural impact and/or how much regional/national pride people put into it and not meant to compare the brands (only because too much blood has been shed in front of me over that discussion). 

Also, if you’re an American and dying to eat at one, Tim Horton’s has something like 11 locations in NYC. Downside: I don’t think roll-up rim exists for us.

I like things that confirm my belief that Tazer spends a lot of time at the Apple Genius Bar being like “BUT HOW DO I RECORD VIDEO? WHAT’S A SNAPCHAT? WHY ARE MY WORDS SPELLED WRONG?”

Even Grantland can’t resist kid Tazer in his Sakic jersey (x).

For people like me, who don’t have Game Center or a television, I wanted to note that Hockey Streams (a site r/hockey loves) is currently offering a Playoff Deal that ends on Friday. I’m going to be taking advantage and it’s a great price for being able to watch every game for…

Annoyingly mobile reblogging to say that I signed up for an invite just before posting that and got one maybe twenty minutes later. Not too arduous a process, I promise.
