Less than 10 minutes in and this game is already peak Stars.

Edmundson got his first playoff goal/second goal in the NHL! THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

I would love all of that and also enthusiastically consenting BDSM with tentacles.

Quarterback is more important than the halfback or fullback. He's the guy who's going to be in the center of the play.

Thanks, nonny, but even that short explanation was confusing. I guess I'm destined not to know much about American football.

Maybe if they put them in skates and put them on ice, I'll be a bit more interested.

There are four downs, always, but one down can sometimes be a field goal attempt or a punt return. A down is a gain of 10 yard. You have four attempts to gain at least 10 yards.

If you do a field goal attempt as your 4th down, it's 3 points. If you kick for an extra point after a touch down, it's 1 point.

If you can understand hybrid icing, football's pretty easy.

Already. Can't hold that lead for a minute.

I've tried to understand this comment, but it went right over my head. I would probably have to go to games with someone who understands it a few times to actually get it (if they're willing to explain things to me constantly).

Thank you though, nonny!

I may have been the one who prompted that >.>

If I'd written it, it probably would have been angstier, because I'm really into the person knowing something isn't right and trying hard to fight it but having a hard time resisting anyway. But I do really love that fill. A lot.

There are some others that aren't as dark as I'd go, but that hit my id. This old J2 fic from the spn kink meme is slow hypnosis with little input from the person being hypnotized, but it still got me:

And actually there are a couple Dean/Castiel fics that involve resisting mind control (but also giving into it).

It's really really not any more confusing than hockey. I think it's just about observation and effort. Like, it gets complicated if you're talking about strategy, but the rules aren't that hard.

It's like Goose felt compelled to fuck something up to make up for scoring.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

DA It's a lot easier to get if you're watching a game. I think that's the case with most sports. Easier to understand things like icing (although sometimes I doubt if even the refs truly understand icing...) or offside if you're actually watching them play.

Re: Fandom Venting

different nonnie prompted that spn fic >.> more of that, yes please.

What does it say about me that I'm less worried now that they're not in the lead? :x I actually have no idea if this is true, but I feel like they're better at comebacks than at keeping a lead...

It's going to be one of THOSE games....

I have the NBC feed on mute and am listening to the Ticket on radio. I've managed to sync it up pretty well so I am patting myself on the back.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

My stance is that I still think all sports are weird but I have a strange soft spot for hockey, like it's a particularly dumb cat that runs into walls a lot.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

From: (Anonymous)
Yeah, I gotta say, people are confusing disinterest and lack of exposure with it being complicated. It's not - you just have to actually watch and have someone explain a few times.

Hmmm, that's also sometimes the case with the Blues. This game/series is going to be interesting.

"10 yard" but how much is that in meters? Haha, that's probably one of my problems too, I have no idea about US measurements.

Re: Game Day Thread - May 1, 2016

From: (Anonymous)
Yep. The right way to go.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

9.14, according to my brief calculations.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

From: (Anonymous)
One of those lines on the field. The space between them is 10 yards. Approximately 10ish meters.

In hockey, it's easy to understand that the object of the game is just to hit the puck into the net more times than the other team. The particulars are where it can get confusing. With football, even if you understand how scoring is achieved (which a lot of people don't), there's a lot more on the surface that can make it seem confusing. I agree that it's just observation and effort, but with hockey I feel that there's a little more you can enjoy without making much effort at all.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

From: (Anonymous)
theyre roughly equivalent so you can just think of them as meters if youd like.

Re: Fic Discussion - Deja vu

From: (Anonymous)
Yards and meters are actually fairly comparable, but it's just generally easier to think "10 [arbitrary unit of measurement]"?
