Summary: By the fourth time Crosby has hung up on him, Alex has to admit that this has gone from funny to, frankly, a little hurtful.

Reccer Notes:
What do I, a listener, need to know about hockey in order to fully appreciate this podfic?
Alex/Sasha is the trolliest matchmaker the NHL has ever seen. He is Russian.
Geno/Zhenya is also Russian. He and Sid play on the same team, which is not the team that Alex is on.
Sid is amazing at anything hockey-related, and terrible at anything that isn't hockey-related. He's Canadian.
None of them are playing hockey, because of union issues. Alex is bored. This is dangerous.
Hockey terms get thrown around. Alex pretends not to know what they mean, so you don't have to know them either.

Convince me that this podfic is amazing in under 1 second:


How would you, kalakirya, summarize this podfic: 25 minutes of joy and delight. knight_tracer reads the pov character in a gloriously hilarious way that I feel compelled to describe as “rollicking”. It's one of those podfics in which the reader's absolute glee at the story comes through really really well, and it's a lot of fun to listen to even if you have absolutely no idea what's going on. I had a lot of trouble choosing a clip to use, because there are a lot of them; the only reason I went with what I did was that it required no explanation. Other contenders include: “Sergei was so right”, “Do you think I should shave my head again, as warrior for justice?”and “Russian all about feeling”
Okay, after realizing that I was just retyping most of the fic, I'm cutting my Lengthy List of Hilarity down to three quotes and sending you to the streaming page. Go. Now. It's a thing of beauty and joy and you will not regret a moment of it.
