Give Me Some Nachos and Hockey, but Mostly the Nachos.
It’s time again for me to discuss how much I love hockey games but still don’t understand where the puck is half the time, I don’t understand why people lose their mind over being on a jumbo-tron and but also how to dress for a hockey game when you want to be cute but don’t want to wear a jersey that has some 14-letter last name that you are praying is still a current player because you borrowed it from a friend to try and impress a guy. Also, let me tell you something, you all NEED to hit up your arena to put in a Qdoba because life gets really REAL when it’s hockey season and you realize you can have your own tub of delicious queso, guac, chips and a margarita in your lap for $13 (remember, it’s the Midwest so the price is cheap) and then watch men punch each other.
I legitimately look forward to hockey for several reasons but they boil down to this, I need to see men on skates going after a puck which I STILL CAN’T SEE HALF THE TIME and also the fun of dressing up for hockey games.
I one day realized that much like the thin little line of blade that men twice my size skate on, such is dressing for a hockey game when you want to put in some effort but realize that most people are just going to go in jeans and a t-shirt. My solution to this? Literally wear jeans and a t-shirt, but just put on a sweater over that t-shirt, add some heels, some accessories that show your team loyalty but also pull the outfit together, do some quick squats, bend and snap and you are well on your way. So it’s like the basic formula, but with a few more added in twists. (Also, this is the perfect way to justify all those buried bauble purchases you made from BaubleBar one day.) That my friends is what we call a massive win-win. Also, the most important factor in all of this should be how comfortable you are going to carrying you plate of nachos and guac to your seat in this outfit. Priorities people.
Also, if someone suggests that you should split that guacamole get them out of your life. Guac is not meant for sharing. I’d like to make a couple of things clear. You can share your cold germs, share your appetizer, share your zest for life, share your most intimate secrets, share your mom’s secret cookie recipe but you do not share guacamole.
