Aww yeah, new pants!

It always kinda annoyed me that my pants didn’t really fit right and did this:


I mean, what the hell is that? You could have put a table setting for six on my ass.

So anyway, Peter and I were at East West to get our skates sharpened. I took a look at the pants in stock while the skates were being done, and I found these:

RBK 8K Hockey Pants

They RULE. I bought them on the spot and wore them to my Val’s Spiny Dogfish game last night.

They’re perfect for small people — not only do they NOT do the ass thing pictured above, but the thigh pads are adjustable both in height and circumference. I also really like the tailbone protection and the padding covers my kidneys well.

This is my first hockey purchase for something I wanted based on how I play, as opposed to basic level gear just to get started. Next up, maybe a new helmet? I still really like my original skates, gloves, pads, and stick….but a new helmet with higher grade padding might be spiffy.

    So that’s your pants riding up eh? Hmmm… I thought it was some kind of aerodynamic wing to keep you firmly on the ice at high speeds. Clearly I don’t know enough about hockey… πŸ˜‰

    That’s right, it’s a spoiler! πŸ˜€
    They’re not really riding up, per se…they’re just Junior Boy’s XL size, so in order to fit at my hips, they’re HUGE at my waist. When I rule the world, everything will be made to fit short thin women with curves. Bwa ha ha!

    I like the spoiler idea. You could have mounted one to go with the orange cone on your head. πŸ˜‰
