- Tiene un metabolismo acelerado. A veces se permite servirse comida dos o tres veces más.
- Abandonó el hockey sin dudar, pero aún es un deporte que le apasiona y ve partidos todos los fines de semana.
- Tiene una relación bastante cercana con Dallas y Joy; ambos miembros del grupo delictivo.
- Por su estilo de vida, ha tenido que presentarse con muchos nombres. El predilecto solía ser “Aleksandr Lobanov”. Hay ocasiones donde lo sigue usando.

- A veces se le puede atrapar hablando solo. Menciona mucho los nombres “Leroy” y “Barney”, como si conversara con estos personajes.
- Es incapaz de hablar de sus propios problemas, pero siempre escucha los de otras personas.
- Cuando está ansioso, suele acariciar o rascar las cicatrices en su muñeca de forma inconsciente.
- Es bisexual. La homosexualidad está severamente desaprobada y es castigada en Rusia, por lo que creció acomplejado, odiando lo que es.

¿Eres persona de bailar o de barra en el bar?

Ni una cosa ni la otra.
Yo cuando salía con amigos prefería dar un paseo, sentarnos en algún banco a charlas con un refresco o bebida energética y, como mucho entrar a algún bar, sentarnos todos en una mesa y bebernos una cerveza mientras charlábamos.
Si había un futbolín jugábamos y, sino pues íbamos a algún sitio donde hubiese billar o hockey de aire para echarnos unas risas.
Me gusta quedar de tranquis.

How did you end up living in Las Vegas?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
I don't live in Vegas, but if I do, I would for sure attend Golden Knights hockey games, and gamble some money in the casinos. The idea of living in Vegas seems appealing but I can vision it growing tiresome after awhile. Everyone who goes to Vegas for a vacation - only goes for a few days for a reason. At some point, the aura runs dry, and you get bored. Reason being is because once you've visited the strip, what else is there to do? So, no point in staying there for too long.

|| Mm, pues Se llama Sergei Kozak, tiene 25 y es ex jugador de hockey, pero abandonó su carrera para convertirse en un criminal que roba bancos y cosas más grandes. Es muy energético y vigoroso, y aunque de un poco de miedo, es amable dentro de lo que cabe ✨

What is a major thing that attracts you to a person?

Looks are somewhat important but intelligence and interest in history/politics. My boyfriend is not, objectively, the best looking man I've ever been with. But I think he's handsome and his MIND is incredible and keeps me interested and loving him.
Personally, physically attractive guys are purely just that. What really attracts me to a person is what they do to keep themselves interested in something, continually learning (in some form), and improving themselves. They need to have their own life and goals essentially.
First they have to be physically attractive to me, which means nice body and great smile. But to keep that attraction they need to have a good sense of humor, be able to keep up conversation, and be kind and compassionate. If any of these traits are missing, physical or non physical, it's a no-go.
Sincerity - I like guys that say what they mean and mean what they say Hobbies - things he's passionate about that haven't anything to do with his job Likes animals - I'm a big animal person so he's gotta love them too! Visual stuff... Ah... Dimples and a cheeky smile are such a YES, so is slightly curly/textured hair. I love nice arms too. A mature, refined sense of style is also a big turn-on.
Athleticism. This must be a throwback to my cavewoman ancestry or whatever, but I love jocks. Something about strength, speed, quick reflexes, and control and coordination over their bodies. When I watch my boyfriend play hockey I turn into a puddle.
I find a lot of guys cute, but to me, attraction is being drawn to them more than a simple comment that they're goodlooking. When I see someone be kind with genuineness and confidence, that's when I really notice.
Certain aspects of their personality. Mostly being very independent, but very socially capable. Having a lot of friends, as well as having a lot of hobbies and interests that he's super into. Not being clingy!! I can't stand it when they treat me like royalty or anything along those lines. I almost like it when they're more valuable than me, so to speak, within the social situation that I meet him in. I guess in a way, I'm attracted to power. Not money, but just the power. There are plenty of instances where someone has power over me without being rich. It can be a measure of success, but mostly because I grew up really poor. There are some aspects of a lower class upbringing that I don't think a child should be exposed to. I honestly wouldn't pursue a relationship with someone if I think we wouldn't be able to provide a middle class income for our child. Personality and money. If you're below average and have both of those things, it's not a deal breaker.
Good self-esteem. I hate self-depreciation so much, and people who fish for compliments. I was kinda-sorta with someone like that and it was annoying. Really good self-esteem (but not arrogance , of course) is really almost a turn-on.

How would you describe your personality? 🙂

I am shy at first when I meet someone, but once I get to know someone better and comfortable with them, I can chat their ear off and become annoying. I talk a lot…..
I am athletic. I like to play sports. Especially badminton, shinny (unprofessional hockey), volleyball and ultimate frisbee.
I am cheerful and positive. I like to talk to people, compliment people, and sometimes I am too positive and people look at me weirdly when I compliment them too much.
I am kind and respectful. I like to treat others with respect, and treat them how I want to be treated. I respect everyone, no matter their race, culture, ethnicity, religion, etc. I’m shy when you first meet me but once I’m used to you I’m going to act my normal self and keep you laughing 24/7.
I’m very sweet and kind. I help others when they need it and be here for everyone that needs me. If you need something important I will make sure I try my best to get it for you.
I love to sing. Singing keeps me calm and makes me happy.
I smile a lot. I love to smile and it lets others know you can get through the day if you just smile. Introverted but highly talkative if you make the first move; perfectionistic; straight-A student with not a lot of common sense, unfortunately; bookworm; musician; daydreamer; self-conscious; absolutely hopeless romantic! Long dark brown hair—if the light hits it just right, you can see my natural coppery highlights. Unfortunately, the light rarely hits it just right. My hair isn't naturally straight (I flat-iron it), but it's not very pretty when I air-dry it (as in it's straightish on one side and curly-wavy on the other side). Dark brown, slightly diamond-shaped eyes with long eyelashes (the bottom ones are very long, but the top ones tend to go out more than curl up, so you can't really tell). I've been told my eyes are pretty three times and once I was told I had “fish scale" dark lines in my irises, how to describe my nose lol. My lips are full and my teeth are straight from two years of braces. Both sides of my family have big teeth, so I have big teeth too. I have an oval face, thick eyebrows that aren't really that dark, and not really any cheekbones that stand out. I look really good in maroon/burgundy, olive green, and navy blue. When I wear makeup, I keep it natural-looking and don't wear heavy, bold eyeshadow or the “brick brows". If you need someone to bring you down from your high horse then I’m here. I’m the guy in the group who presents the problems to a plan or project so they don’t do anything rash. Switches between “morose, depressing and dour.” , “Unhinged, Sadistic and Evil.” and “Completely amicable and affable.” I have no Idea which one will come out when I talk to you.

Quel est votre sport favori ?

Soccer!! I used to play soccer SOOO much when I was younger. I have stopped for a really long time though, I almost never play it and it makes me kinda sad. I'm planning on doing something about that once winter ends though. I'm really good at goaltending but I'm sure I'm going to need a lot of practice to regain my skills. I've only recently started getting into watching soccer. I used to watch basketball and have watched hockey all my life though. Love those sports too.
I grew up in Alabama, which has no professional team. The university teams (especially Auburn University & University of Alabama) are the highest level, and I actually like watching them better. Going to a game live is really fun. The cheerleaders actually lead cheers with signs and the "mic man" (male cheerleader who uses a PA so the student section can hear and cheer along). Also, I like the halftime shows better (which they don't show on TV because of music copyrights issues) because I'm a former marching band geek.
Play: Basketball. It's basically the only thing I know how to play at a high enough level. (Too skinny to play football most of my life, hate soccer, too weak to actually play baseball, and chose track & field over playing volleyball.) Plus getting a neat little dopamine rush when scoring a lot or doing really impressive things like defensive stops or pinning someone's layup on the backboard, that's also nice.
It's a sport that's still in it's infancy. We're still figuring out how the hell it's all going to work in the long term. I like following along with a sport as it goes through it's "wild west" phase. It can be a complete shit show sometimes, but it's also a mad crucible where we're figuring what actually works in combat sports.
It's a draw between AFL and basketball. Both to play and watch on tv - I don't really like going to either of the games though. AFL has too much of the crowd screaming at the umpires about what call to make whenever there is a tackle and it's always miraculously the call that will give the home team possession of the ball. Basketball is kind of spoiled by the announcer constantly trying to hype up the crowd. I think tennis is my favourite sport to watch live.
I don't like playing sports or watching them, but if I have to, I'll watch hockey or basketball because they move quickly. Hockey in particular. Watching a full football, soccer, or baseball game is like torture to me. I mean, if we're talking less-conventional sports, I used to be good at archery and skeet shooting. And I'd rather watch some kind of auto racing than any ball-based sport. And there's nothing like taking a nap to a game of golf on a lazy sunday.

What is paradise for you?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
My paradise is an empty hockey rink. I strap on my skates and head to the ice. I bring out a few pucks with me and fire shots till my wrists shake. I have no stress and no worries when I'm out there. A smile on my face the entire time. I focus on the sounds: the sounds of my skates ripping into the ice, the sound of my stick making contact with the puck, the sound of a few ringers of the posts or the crossbar, the sound when I occasionally miss the net and hit the glass ;), the silence when the puck is absorbed in the netting. There is nothing greater to me. Alas, with a broken ankle it will be awhile till I hit the ice again...
The most peaceful I think I've ever been was drinking beer in a hot tub on the deck/balcony of a log cabin in the mountains overlooking a valley and the glittering lights of the town below. Crisp chill night, not terribly cold, but cold enough that steam rises from your skin as you raise your arm out of the water. Smell of pine, grass, wildflowers, and earth in the air. No sound except the animals, and the bubbling of the hot tub.
I live in a small town. A five minute walk gets me to a pine tree forest on a hill. Paradise for me is walking there in the early morning when my favorite niece is visiting. We have a flask of coffee, bacon sandwiches, cappuccino muffin. We spread out a blanket in a little hollow in the forest, on a soft bed of pine needles. We lie down, staring out over the rolling hills and discuss anything and everything, but mostly our talks are Tolkien related. Pure bliss.
The top of a mountain, mid December, with a light snow falling at 24 F and the whole day ahead of me on my freshly waxed skis. My cheeks sting from the cold and I can feel the snow melting on my lips. My eyes search for my perfect line downward, and my hands grasp my poles tighter in anticipation for the inevitable adrenaline rush that will warm me through and through. The whoosh of my skis through the four inches of fluffy fresh powder is overpowered by the cacophony of wind that assaults my ears and chills them to their numbing point. After racing down the mountain, I slide onto a lift and give my shaking legs a rest. My hands slide out of my gloves and gladly accept the hot air I breath through them as I prepare to do it all over again for the rest of the day.
The first thing is the scent. The delicious salty, ocean smell. Accompanies by the smell of fresh vegetation. I'm relaxed sitting in a chair. Just my significant group of friends. Laughter between all of us. You look out to see a deserted beach. It's ours for miles. The noon day sun is high in the air. There are birds flying, fish jumping, insects bustling. A cold beer in my right hand. The ocean is a crystal blue unimaginable except to those who have seen it.

Which sport is the most exciting to watch?

iWillSpamYouAsk’s Profile PhotoSpam Ask
Not even that big a hockey fan, but I've been to my share of NHL games, and hockey live is fucking amazing. There are fights, real bloody, teeth getting knocked out, feelings gettin hurt fights. And the players have to sit in timeout in a glass cube if they get a penalty and all the fans are drunk and fuck with them. And you can actually see the puck in person vs tv where it's hard to follow. Theres a damn Zamboni between periods and the sound of the players skates on the fresh ice is very satisfying. Only downside is if 1 player scores three goals, it's a hat trick and everybody throws their hat on the ice. What if I like my hat wtf
Almost all major sports will get tie d for most entertaining. But as a non-American,I never understood some American sports having 15 minutes of action and 30 minutes of nothing. Some people might get triggered because the OP asked for real sports, but high level Dota 2(esports) has given me the most chills out of any other thing I've watched. And the longer the game goes, the better it gets.
Baseball is awesome to watch. All you need to do is put some money down on the game and you'll be glued to your tv. Not even a significant amount of money, you can throw $1 down and just having that little bit of investment to actually watch the game makes it a great afternoon.
Average Game time for the 2017 Boston Red Sox was 3:20. While around 15 minutes higher than league average, not really that close to 4-5 hour range. They did have 16 games over 4 hours, so about 10 percent. Of those 3 were over 5 hours, and 2 of those over 6 hours(6:00 and 6:05). So there do tend to be some longer games, because there is technically no timer on the game, but they are fairly rare.
That's the beauty of it -- you can invest as much or as little time as you want into it. Football fans (and I love football, too) have only that once-a-week window to drink an inappropriate amount of beer and curse the tv. Baseball fans can do it pretty much solidly for an entire 6 months.
Redzone NFL Football. Used to be the regular single game at a time but I got super spoiled by seeing every single score, highlights as they happen live, and basically the most exciting thing going on in any given game for 3 hours straight.
Cricket. Like most sports, it's almost impossible to enjoy unless you grow up watching it, but for me, there's nothing better than watching one of the worlds best batsmen duck under a potentially lethal ball delivered from one of the worlds quickest bowlers. My second choice is the Tour de France. There aren't many sports where you see a group of people push themselves to breaking point, and are able to watch them drop out one by one as they reach their physical limit. It only happens a few days each year, on the high mountain climbs, but it's an extraordinary and harsh test of endurance. The mountains seperate the contenders like no other element of any other sport.

Anyone from the Ottawa Canada area? What's your thoughts about the otrain?

Nope. I'm in Halifax. Originally from Toronto. If I ever live in Ottawa I'd probably wonder how I ended up there, and would want to get out of there ASAP lol. No offense to Ottawa, but it ain't got nothing on Toronto. Especially in hockey. Leafs will always own the Senators no matter what happens. The Leafs could field a team full of paraplegics, and they'd still own the Senators.

What's one or even several stereotypes that people have of people from your country that you think are completely false? 🤔 Are there any that you feel are completely justified? Haha

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Some people still believe that we live in igloos and I can safely say I've never lived in an igloo before. That's only stuff you would find in the Arctic. An igloo would simply melt if you placed it anywhere that wasn't in the Canadian Arctic.
Maple Syrup is another stereotype that I believe is true, but a bit blown out of proportion. It's true that we love our maple syrup, but I honestly wouldn't put it on everything. If it were put on pizza, it would feel a bit odd. It would get too sticky. For a food that can already get sticky enough when hot, I think it would just be a recipe for disaster.
One stereotype that is 100% true is our love for hockey. World Juniors, Stanley Cup Playoffs, Olympics always draw huge ratings. Surprisingly the World Championships do not, but that's normally because we can't send our best players since they're playing in the playoffs. So we'd basically be watching our B or C team. They're almost always played in Europe as well, so the time difference can be a bit funny. Add those two together, and the World Championships are an afterthought over here. Which seems odd when you consider it's a World Championship, but alas, I think that adds more amazingness to our love for hockey.
As well, whenever a Canadian team does well in the Stanley Cup playoffs, ratings are up. When no Canadian teams are in the playoffs, ratings go down. Funny enough, the reverse is true in America. Ratings go down when a Canadian team plays, and ratings go up when an American team plays. That's why Stanley Cup Finals with American teams do terrible in Canada. Despite the teams having mostly Canadian players, it's not the same.
Like when 0 Canadian teams were in the 2016 playoffs: https://www.si.com/hockey/news/playoff-tv-ratings-down-a-shocking-61-percent-in-canada
And during the 2020 finals: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/article-low-ratings-as-hockey-fans-flocked-to-then-fled-from-stanley-cup/
And during the 2018 playoffs (notice the decline in viewers): https://assets.numeris.ca/DNAInsights/How%20Canadians%20Watched%20the%202018%20NHL%20Playoffs.PDF
Not many people would care if the Stars and Devils played in the finals because there's not many Stars and Devils fans in Canada. However, put a Canadian team in the finals, and ratings will be high.

I don't know if you've been following the Olympics, but Australia will play Belgium in the finals. Belgium beat India 5-2, and Australia beat Germany 3-1 in the semis. India and Germany will play for the bronze. Who do you think will win!? This is in hockey by the way. Field hockey, not ice...

What's the best country to move to, and why?

Any scandinavian country is pretty decent for quality of life. Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and I'm adding Canada, my country. Taxes are heavier but you get free health care, low crime rate and a general higher standard of living. If you plan on having a family these are probably the best countries for them to live in and set themselves up.
This might come as a surprise to some, especially considering the fiscal situation, but I have to say Spain. I lived there during the worst part of the recent financial crisis, and it was very tough. However, thanks to the cyclical nature of economic markets the country is on the upswing, and oh boy, what an upswing it's going to be, unless the lobbying for Catalan independence comes through. The quality of life was fantastic before the crisis and those days will be back. Consumption and purchases are on the rise, and it's a fantastically productive environment for foreign entrepreneurs, especially if you are going to be hiring Spaniards. You'll get national residency in a heartbeat. Living there is comparatively very cheap. Renting a 2-bedroom apartment in Madrid city, that's just over 100 sq. metres will put you down €1000 a month tops. Internet is affordable and very reliable, with marginal surveillance compared to other developed countries. Food, drink and social life is also very wallet-friendly. Canada. Healthcare, High standards of living, super friendly people, good jobs, minimal crime and hockey! Plus the federal government that recently got elected has promised to legalize marijuana. You can't go wrong with that. I love India... but it's prob not everyone's cup of tea. It's cheap, so you can travel way longer if you're on a budget. You know that whole saying "it's not the destination, it's the journey"? ... well that really applies here. Your daily experinces are just so far removed from my home country and thats exactly what makes it great. Italy. Great food, great coffee, great (cheap) rail network, great history/art/culture
France... to be fair I only went to Paris but I fell in love with the city. There isn't some McDonalds or Starbucks on every corner and you are not bombarded with advertising like in some places. Much of the west seems to be bowing to this consumerist, money driven ideology, but Paris was just Paris going about its business. I'm not someone who ever enjoyed studying history in school, but going to places that live and breathe war history really makes me enjoy places as there's so much to see. Therefore I'd recommend Germany (particularly Berlin) and Bosnia. Vietnam - its cities (particularly Hanoi) are very dynamic and vibrant, with lots of culture. Countryside, particularly up north around Sapa is incredible. Its also incredibly cheap and has IMHO the best cuisine in the world. (Honourable mention goes to Laos - if you're in Vietnam, take the time to visit Laos.... it's a fascinating country that runs at its own relaxed pace).

Are you currently keeping track of what's happening at the Olympics? Do you root for your home country to do well in sports in general? 🏊‍♂️⚽️🤺🏹🏀⛵🏋‍♂️

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I actually haven't yet. These Olympics are weird because most of the games will be on either late at night, or early in the morning. By the time most people are up the games are over, so all we have are highlights. I loved the Rio Olympics because you can watch like most of the action as it's live, and not wait for the recap show. Either way, I'll be getting into the Olympics as early as today. I just need to see what I missed.
I root for Canada over anything else in the Olympics. This is one occasion where we can send our best athletes, and see what they can do. It's one thing to see Canada win in Ice Hockey at the Olympics. It's another thing to see a Canadian winning the 100m dash. One is expected; the other is unexpected.

What's the most expensive meal you've ever eaten?

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Balmoral in Edinburgh, Scotland and when I was drunk I ordered up a full breakfast, with 5 different types of fruit juice and tea and coffee for room service. That came to £80 for breakfast and the meal the night before came to £500. I wasn't the most popular the next morning when the bill had to be settled. Including the room price. I went on a trip to the Soviet Union in 1989. I was 20, most of my group were 15, 16, 17. At one meal they served very expensive caviar (back in USA this stuff was $80 an ounce) and the teens didn't want theirs. I must have eaten like $500 worth of caviar. New Years Eve dinner at the New York Grill, Park Hyatt Shinjuku, Tokyo. It's the bar/restaurant where Bill Murray and Scarlett Johanssen meet and hang out in Lost in Translation. 5 course meal plus drinks and champagne at midnight. Pretty sure we spent around $800 on a meal for two. Totally worth it.
My grandparents wanted to take me out for dinner a few weeks ago. My grandparents are the type of people who when we go out, they go all out. We went to some super fancy seafood restaurant. I always try to go cheap when someone else pays, my grandfather wouldnt allow this and ordered for me. My meal alone was around $100. Crab stuffed shrimp, crab chips, and a xl cold water lobster tail. Very delicious but very expensive.
This one time at a bar some friends and I went to in order to watch some hockey, we got dinner and some drinks. Some drinks turned into getting completely shit hammered. The waitress we had was phenomenal, never had an empty beer bucket, would complete all the stupid drink requests that our dumb drunk asses asked for, and was super fun to talk with. I’m usually a generous tipper, but my drunk self was extremely generous. I tipped her 100%, I think. That’s how shitty sports bar food and a fuckload of drinks became the most expensive meal I ever paid for.
I was once on a project with ~60 people from my firm. We were in Minneapolis, in the winter, and this project was not known for being a career-maker, so no one was thrilled to be there. One of the more social consultants was being rolled off and so we had a last-week dinner for him. Typically, this just means the different teams meet up at a slightly nicer than usual restaurant for dinner together (when you're on the road, every dinner is out somewhere, so this was mainly just convenience).
Several years ago, when money was somewhat more available than it is now, my wife and I ate at The Fat Duck, a three-Michelin star restaurant that at the time was considered by many to be the top restaurant in the world. It was around $1200 for the two of us. That doesn't include the cost of flying from the US to the UK (we did a few other things while we were there, including eating at Gordon Ramsey's flagship restaurant, but The Fat Duck was the reason for the trip). Stupidly expensive. Worth it? Yes, no question.

The Oilers need more depth. Lots of it. That's probably one reason why they signed RNH for 8 years. Management knows that outside of McD and Drai, their depth is bare to the bones. They have basically one good line, and then 3 lines that are inconsistent. That's not good enough. You need 4 consistent lines - or 3 at most if you're really good, to have a shot at winning.
You can't win a Cup with two or three players putting in most of the work. If it ends up happening, then they would have to be better than Wayne Gretzky himself - who also needed help to win his Cups. Just like MJ needed help to win his 6. Speaking of MJ, hockey is a much different beast than basketball. In basketball, you can try to get away in having one player carry a team to the championship. It's not easy though. Just ask LeBron in 07 and AI in 01. It's a team game; not an individual game.
The Oilers suffered the way they did because of poor management for a good part of 2 decades. After their dynasty, things just kinda fell flat, and became average. Look at their season records since 1990, and it's a lot of mediocrity. They failed on their draft picks, failed to be contenders, failed to do anything concrete. Given how the Oilers have had four 1st overall picks since 2010, you would think that'd be enough to be a title contender. Alas, they never got close. Even with two of the best players in the world, they don't look like a championship team.
Given this current team, the only way the Oilers beat the Bruins is if the two-headed monster in McD and Drai are scorching hot. Otherwise, it will be a win for the Bruins.

Si ti racconto che ho visto la storia vera di un bambino indiano indigeno che sarebbe stato accolto in un collegio dopo che i suoi genitori sono stati dichiarati dispersi. Lui viveva con la nonne e devi sapere che lui è diventato un campione di hockey su ghiaccio. che sembra che questo campione veniva pure derisi dalla sua squadra e sembra che lui ha trovato forza dalle sua spiritualità

Any lifters that had a serious injury & "let it recover" to just be in pain afterwords? But! Push through the pain & it got better?

I'm not a heavy lifter, but pushing through pain will just make things worse. Unless you have a firm belief that you can still workout despite being in pain - because let's face it, not everyone can do that. They'd probably break a bone if they did such a thing. Yet, for some people, they can do it effortlessly, and it may even help them feel better - even if they are in pain. Humans are interesting creatures. I mean look at hockey players - a lot of them play with these injuries, and yet if that were a baseball player, they'd probably break multiple bones, or fracture a bone.

What is your favorite thing about your country?

China: I love the long history and unique culture, I also love the unique blend of modernizations and old architectures in many Chinese cities, also I think Chinese cuisines are some of best in the world (real Chinese local cuisines, not bastardized ones here we see in the west). Canada: I grew up in Montreal, I loved the diversity, the friendliness, and just overall positivity of Canada. USA: I love the American Can Do spirit, I love my communities and my friends. I went to college in the south and I loved the football culture and greasy drunk food. I am not a gun fanatics but I do enjoy firearms and shooting range so I appreciate the gun culture. Canada. Super diverse and multi cultural, lots of land to move around and never get the feeling of over population. Incredible scenery, mountains to west, forests for the east and incredible camping/hiking. Hockey is one of the most entertaining sports in existence. The rest of the world thinks we are super polite and nice(this is mostly true)
I do however love how outgoing and friendly Americans seem to be (only know what I've been told from friends that visited), here most people are pretty reserved and sometimes when l just say hi to someone while walking my dog, it looks like I caught someone off guard and they weren't actually prepared for any unnecessary human interaction. Italy: food, scenery, and the fact the country gives you the possibility to study even if you are poor (by poor I mean people who are actually in a bad economic situation and not homeless people who can’t even afford clothes) and the cost of education which is very very low ( many countries in Europe do have the same costs more or less) compared to anglophone countries which I really like but the cost of education is literally too high for everyone to access.
US - really like the national parks, and the overall diversity of landscape. Where I live, you can hit the mountains and ocean in the same day if you like, and just about everything else except desert and that’s only a 12 hour drive away. It’s also much easier to get around and visit these destinations than a lot of other countries, just because there’s states rather than separate countries. The one thing I wish we had are the historical sites like the rest of the world has, though we do have some, they’re just not as impressive (when comparing to Greece, Italy, places like that). I live in the US and I’m honestly having trouble thinking of something here that I like better than other countries. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate living here, but I travel outside the US a couple times a year and there’s just so amazing things in each country. I’ve also never liked the individualist culture of the US, but I guess one thing we do best overall is movies.

Greetings! 🙃 What sport do you admire?

bennennej
I admire a lot of sports. Hockey for its speed, skill, size, and physicality. Did I mention you need to learn how to skate? Not everyone can do that. Then you have soccer - which is like hockey minus the skating part. I find some people who love hockey are easy to discredit soccer as a "flopper sport", but if you watch some of it, you'll see just how good it is. And I'm willing to bet every soccer fan hates flopping just as much as the non-fans do. So, it isn't like flopping is part of the game. It's just something Neymar was trained to do.
Then you have baseball - which is the only sport aside from American Football that you can be "fat" in, and not look unathletic. Baseball doesn't discriminate on size, and I find that more fascinating. You have bigger players who can run well, field well, and hit well. If that's not skill, I don't know what is. I think it's cool how there's different shapes and sizes in baseball, yet the smaller players aren't always better than the bigger players.

I respect your opinion. For me, I look beyond that. Im not here for political reasons. I try to interact with people and build bridges between humans regardless of their nationality.If they behave nice, that's good for me😁

Life in Turkey does not allow this.. Both politics and internal turmoil.. I wish I could think like you. I've been to Finland or Sweden. People go to work there by bicycle. We are sweating in Istanbul or any Turkish city. From the rush to go to work. The difference between us starts here. While your mind is busy with the Ice Hockey game that will be played in the evening, our minds are busy with the economy, financial troubles or the increase of the American dollar.

Are you genuinely happy?

I am right now. The Montreal Canadiens just won another NHL playoff series and are now in the semifinals.
My father and my best friend’s father were lifelong Canadiens hockey fans. So were their fathers. Tonight they are together up in Heaven smiling so big tonight. So am I in between a few tears of happiness.

What was a time when you were extremely hyped for something but it turned out to be a huge disappointment?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Game 6 between the Leafs and Habs. Not even Game 7 because I had a feeling it'd end badly, but game 6 had me hyped. Saturday night hockey, in front of fans, with the opportunity to send the Habs home. What more could you want?
Needless to say, that game left me deflated like Tom Brady's footballs when he was still a Patriot. Just tough to watch.

How's everyone's day going? I want to try and cheer up anyone who is having a bad day today.

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
So far the day has been pretty good. I just can't get over the Leafs loss last night. That had to have been the most devastating loss I have personally witnessed since their game 7 collapse vs Boston in 2013. The way they lost was heartbreaking. They were down two goals in the third period, seemingly with no hope, and then they scored two goals to force it into overtime. I thought for sure they had the game in the bag because momentum was on their side. They look good in overtime too. They were getting good opportunities, getting good pressure, they were playing like they should have been in the first and second period, and then they let Montreal have one opportunity and the game ended.
I just can't get over the loss because of how talented this team is. This is the most talented Leafs roster ever. From top to bottom you can find talent in every single player. Management has done everything possible to construct the best team that could potentially win the Stanley Cup. Yet they can't seem to beat a team that they should have beaten in four or five games. It's not a talent issue. It's a mental issue. I firmly believe some of these players can't play the game mentally. Wayne Gretzky said that 90% of hockey is mental. He is absolutely correct. Most of these players have a pretty terrible mindset. It's as if they give up when they make one mistake. You’re never going to win when all you do is fold after one error.
Even if they win Game 7, that doesn’t fix the bigger issue at hand. The Leafs have a mental problem, and they need to get that fixed. Otherwise, this team will never win a Stanley Cup. Ever.

Wie sieht denn der Alltag deiner HCs in etwas aus? Was für Hobbys haben sie, damit ihnen die Unendlichkeit nicht - na, ja - unendlich vorkommt xD und sie vor Langeweile Chaos stiften, wie Vanitas es macht.

Hehe eine sehr interessante Frage wenn du mich fragst, die ich leider auch viel zu lange aufgeschoben habe *hust* 😋
# Jewa
Man muss sagen Jewa verbringt ihre Freizeit sehr gerne in ihrem Atelier, egal ob sie zeichnet, malt, töpfert oder Skulpturen herstellt. Sie liebt es sich künstlerisch zu betätigen. Generell hat sie recht "ruhigere" Hobbys, wenn man es so ausdrücken möchte, da auch kochen, backen und lesen dazu gehören. Und natürlich darf man nicht vergessen sie verbringt sehr gerne Zeit mit Nieves und Ivar, vor allem mit ihnen Spazieren zu gehen und möchlichst nichts mit Vanitas und Jaime zu tun zu haben. Zudem sind Jewa und Ivar in einem kleinen Buchclub und treffen sich einmal die Woche mit dieser Woche einmal die Woche.
# Jaime
Jaime verbringt viele Zeit in seinem Club. Nicht nur weil er ebenso wie Jewa sein Hobby (Partys organisieren) zum Beruf gemacht sondern auch weil es ziemlich zeitaufwendig ist einen Nachtclub zu führen, da Jaime sich nicht nur darum kümmern muss, dass es während den Zeiten alles so läuft wie es laufen muss, sondern weil er sich fast schon komplett alleine um die Finanzen, dem Lagerbestand und das ganze bürokratische Zeugs kümmern muss. Aber wenn er mal nicht im Pandemonium zugange ist, so kann man ihm meistens bei sportlichen Aktivitäten beobachten. Vor allem geht er sehr gerne Fechten und Boxen, kann sich aber auch für Ice Hockey und Paintball begeistern. Generell probiert er auch alle paar Jahre neue Sportarten aus. Genügend Zeit alles einmal auszuprobieren hat er ja inzwischen 😂
