How did you meet your husband?
We were introduced by mutual friends. My friend, Courtney, was engaged to his teammate. They were determined to set us up. I wasn't so sure in the beginning but I've never been more grateful to two people.
Say you looked up into the crowd and saw a cute fan, would you tell someone (like your handler) to get the girls number? Where would be a good place to meet a hockey player without them thinking you are just a puck bunny?
We never meet a girl that way, it just doesn't happen. Puck bunny is just a term women use to label women who chase hockey players. We don't really use it. Go to a bar. If you're good looking, most guys won't give two shits what your reasons for pursuing him are.
What is your view on puck bunnies? I'd like to hear from both you and your husband.
My husband says, "They're awesome. God bless them."
For another male opinion, check this out.
When I started this blog, nearly three years ago, I wrote this post about puck bunnies. I still can't comprehend how a woman could be so obsessed with a man (or multiple men) she doesn't know. Maybe she thinks it'd be cool to say she slept with so-and-so. Maybe she thinks their one-night stand will turn into a real relationship (hell, anything is possible). Maybe she just wants to feel like she's someone because she's now associated with a someone. If you are attracted to hockey players, or it is your goal in life to snag one, fine by me! Whatever floats your boat. Just stay away from mine.
Lupul recently said he would never date a girl who was a fan of hockey. Do you agree or would you like your woman to have some interest in what you do for a living?
That's easy for Lupul to say, playing in the show with 10 schmill in the bank. Fuck off. Lupul, not you. It never mattered to me, I just need to have more than a love of hockey in common.
How do you plan when you don't know where your husband is playing next season? Is it possible?
We can plan, to an extent, but we have to have about eight different scenarios going at the same time in order to be remotely successful. I used to try to prepare myself for every possible outcome but after two seasons of that, I threw in the towel. Everything always seems to work out (even when we are placed in a less than ideal situation) so now, we just wing it. We have the rest of our lives to plan and be stable, right?
