Hey there, I’m Frostee, a.k.a. Emily, the writer of this little blog. I’ve compiled a list of a few things you might need or want to know while reading.
I have a terrible habit of coming up with nicknames for players. Some are good, some are bad, and if I’m really feeling uncreative I’ll just copy what everyone else calls them. These are a few of the more frequently used ones:
Crunchy, Ryan, Boiiifrannn (although this one’s only at games) = Ryan Miller
Alex, Alexander, Ovie = Alex Ovechkin
Michael = Mike Green
Caveman = Jaroslav Spacek
Sasha, Semie = Alexander Semin
J.Po, Pommer, Pommerdoodle, Jason = Jason Pominville
Simeon Toast Crunch (TM Anne) = Simeon Varlamov
Sir Christopher = (TM Anne) = Chris Butler
Princess D = Derek Roy
Sidbits = Sidney Crosby
Nickie B., Nicklas, Lars = Nick Backstrom
Feds = Sergei Fedorov
Pkane, Patty K, Kaner = Patrick Kane
Pkaleta, Patty K = Patrick Kaleta
Geno = Evgeni Malkin
Zachity Zach = Zach Bogosian
Pie, Man Child = Dan Paille
Goose, Paulie = Paul Gaustad
I don’t like Sidney Crosby. I’m sorry. I do know that I tend to make lists of players I do like: Favorite Sabres, Favorite Caps, Favorite Non-Sabres, Favorite Russians, and so on and so forth.
I do like Alexander Ovechkin. A lot. Please, just don’t send me an email in which you INSIST you are his ABSOLUTE BIGGEST FAN. Hey, you know what? I know what shoe size his mother wears. I’m pathetic, but I also win.
It may seem like I care about the Capitals or Thrashers more than the Sabres, but it’s really just that I’ve loved the Sabres for so long that I don’t really have to show my love every single day. Also, when they’re sucking I don’t like talking about them. Just know that I’d rather see them win the Cup. Not that that’s ever happening.
If you have a question or anything like that, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also tweet, and if you’re misguided enough to be reading this blog, you might as well follow me on Twitter. I try to keep my complaining to a minimum.
