I almost feel bad… no hockey fan deserves that amount of bullshit
Agreed. I feel bad for Philly Fans and actually refuse to laugh about the situation. We’ve all had our teams go through slumps and implosions, so this hockey fan is giving the philly fan base a hug and a shoulder to cry on. Just remember that It’ll get better someday.
Why She Became a Goalie:
“I’ve been asked the question a lot, but there’s no real reason why actually. I mean, my dad was a goalie and maybe it was just kind of a runs in the family type thing, but I just literally was thinking one day and decided I wanted to be a goalie. My parents didn’t believe me at first. They [said], ‘Are you sure?’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ It took a little convincing, but I just loved it from the start.”
“I think it’s kind of a hard thing and a good thing because sometimes you can be the hero and sometimes people point fingers at you. But, I think when you’re the hero, you look over the hard parts of it and that feeling that you get when you make a big save or are the one that saves the team, it’s really cool and I think nothing really compares to that,” Taylor said. “I’ve learned to like the pressure. I like having that responsibility of helping the team or to save the puck and I never really got that excitement from scoring a goal. I tried to [be a] player once, but I never got that feeling. When I make a save, it’s awesome.”
On Team Canada Goalie Camp:
“It was really cool. It was the first time I was part of the Team Canada program and it was really eye-opening because you got to see the top eight goalies compete, not just in the under-18, but the under-22 and you kind of got a real sense of what you have to do to be one of those goalies,” Taylor said. “It was really cool just to see the work ethic and what it really takes. The facilities are unbelievable and just to be treated like part of the Team Canada program was unique.”
Sid Teases Taylor:
“There’s so many things. I used to watch ‘The Lion King’ and he used to tease me about that. He used to chase me around, used to pretend he was ‘Jaws’ in the pool and tickle me crazy, just like any normal brother. But, those are the best memories.”
Sid Goes Pro:
“When I turned six, he left to come to Shattuck and that was kind of when he moved out, basically. So, I saw him in the summers and on breaks just like I do now when I go home to see my parents, but that was definitely a hard time for me when he left. But, we managed to stay really close and still to this day, we don’t talk all the time, but when we do, it’s good. We’re still really close.”
“He’s still the older brother figure. He’s very overprotective and he’s making sure that I’m staying up to speed with my schoolwork. So, he very much looks out for me.”
“It’s worn off now since he’s gotten older and I’ve gotten older, but when I was younger at the games, I’d get mad if anyone ever hit him, or if he was in the corner, my eyes would be glued on him like ‘You don’t touch my brother,’ kind of thing. Still to this day, when I watch him, I yell at the TV or something.”
On Facing her Brother:
"To some degree, I think he went as hard as he could. He didn’t want to hurt me obviously, but he’s competitive. He’s a competitive person. So, just because I’m his sister, he’s not going to go easy on me. I’m competitive too so I wanted to stop a couple and when I didn’t, I was frustrated about that"
