    Summary

    Bitty’s first thought was that he was being pranked, that Jack recruited someone to slam him into the sideboards every Tuesday, just to keep him in check. But the person who’d crashed into him wasn’t on the hockey team, and looked equally stunned to be suddenly facedown on the ice. Bitty dragged himself back to standing, already feeling the bruises he would surely see tomorrow morning, and offered a hand to his assailant.

    “Gracious, what a way to meet a guy.” Bitty said. “I'm Eric Bittle, but everyone just calls me Bitty.”

    “LaTour, Scot,” the boy said, offering a hand of his own. “One T.”

    Or, the story in which Bitty makes a new friend, Jack makes some new headlines, and everyone makes breakfast.

    Summary

    When Eric Bittle started his new job at a local tech startup, he wasn't expecting to find a home.

    When pro hockey player Jack Zimmermann agreed to a sponsored Instagram takeover for his favorite nutrition tracking app, he wasn't expecting their social media person to be quite so cute.

    When Shitty Knight founded a company, he wasn't expecting being his friends' boss would be this hard.

    Summary

    Writing wasn’t a career Jack saw for himself, ever. Not when he was hockey’s boy wonder. Not when he was a 19-year-old NHL rookie, just trying to play through his anxiety until he couldn’t anymore. Not when he came back and led his team to a Stanley Cup win, and had two more good years before a torn ACL ended his career. Not even when he went to college and took a creative writing class because he needed one more elective to graduate.

    It wasn’t until, on the advice of his therapist, he picked up a notebook and pen and started recording his feelings about his childhood and too-short NHL career that he realized he enjoyed writing, was maybe even good at it.

    Summary

    Life goes on after the Foxes win the championship, and for Andrew and Neil it's uncharted territory with only each other for guides. Maybe it's time to put away some of those hard edges, and learn how to touch more softly, and speak more honestly. And if they falter, they have their family to help them get back on their feet.

    Summary

    Summers for Eric meant Kent. Hockey for Kent meant Jack. Home for Jack was this intangible concept he was still looking for. They had exactly three things in common: sports, sandwiches, and each other.
