    Summary

    Scoring is a necessity in any hockey game, but good sauce is needed in a fast game even more. And the Islanders are fast.

    Travis Konecny needs to score. He knows he needs to score, and he hasn't been able to in the bubble. At all. Which is crap, and he doesn't know what to do about it. Provy and Hartsy are helping each other, Hayes is doing his best, which is great, and G is always on. But TK needs a goal.

    He needs a goal, and a particular teammate could always get one for him. But he's not here, and TK needs him too.

    (Or, with the last few games against the Canadiens and the first against the Isles, Provorov is backing up his goalie, Konecny and Sanheim are helping Hayes, and he, Farabee and Pitlick are getting all the good shots on goal that Konecny wants. The ones that he and Patrick could always get, together. But Nolan isn't here, and it's a tough series)

    Summary

    They call him El Tigre. He is an emerging outside linebacker of the London Panthers, a university gridiron football team affiliated with the BAFA, and a team that has explosively and suddenly put its name in the forefront of the standings since he was drafted on the team. His stats were considered a trend-setter even within the college level, and it was even rumored that he is setting his eyes on a bigger prize -- to be drafted by one of the NFL franchises. Despite his headstrong personality and polarizing presence in the media, the infamous university linebacker has become a cherished symbol amongst his peers and an icon of inspiration to the young athletes enamored by the rough and muddy spirit of the American sport -- an icon of hope for the underdogs at heart.
    The youngest Holmes brother, for the life of him, cannot figure out why the man is endlessly infuriating.
    Although if he were being honest, the last word of that line of thought should've been -- "fascinating".

    Summary

    “Okay, Bakamura, since you and I both know that you aren’t the sharpest tool in the shelf, I will try to make it easier on you and use a comparison even you, a complete blockhead, should be able to follow.” 

    “Eeeeeeh?!” Eijun started to protest, but was instantly cut-off by a sharp look.

    “It’s really easy,” Miyuki promised, “because it’s such an simple thing to understand. Pitching, you see, is very much like kissing.”

    Eijun was sure, something in his head had been rewired and not put back together correctly. And he was pretty sure this something had had to do with his hearing.

    It was strictly impossible that Miyuki had just said what Eijun thought he had said.

    No way in hell!

    Summary

    The good thing about being physically involved with both his pitchers, mediocre-but-enthusiastic sex aside, is that it makes them even more competitive on the field, and incredibly easy to control.

    The bad thing is that they’re both terrible about sharing.
