Women Hockey Fans Know the Game – Pucking Bunnies Don’t
Hockey bunnies, or ‘Puck Bunnies,’ – or whatever name they’re giving themselves this week, have been about as much of a tradition as taunting the goalie. Unfortunately, they’re a lot less entertaining.
If you were to look at a hockey bunny or puck bunny in a sort of ‘natural habitat’ sort of way, you would classify them as a fixture in every arena. They’re easy to spot, as they are typically under-dressed but apparently make up for the lack of material on their bodies by the amount of makeup on their face. They’ll plaster their phone numbers on signs – they’d probably get them on the jumbotron if they could – they’ll yell out cheers to specific players who have likely never seen them before in their lives, and they’ll mysteriously find their way into places they simply shouldn’t be. A prime example? Locker rooms. Hockey players love it though. Morals?
Yes, somehow, for all their downfalls, many pucking hockey bunnies could probably moonlight as secret agents with how good they are at sneaking into places they don’t belong. Or not, who remembers this hockey mom having sexual intercourse with youth hockey players?
The worst part about all of it, really, is it can reflect poorly on the players. More often than not, the attention players get from bunnies is completely “unwanted” and “unwarranted”. Many of them have wives or girlfriends, and if a bunny finds her way into a locker room, or waits for a specific player somewhere, etc., it can, simply put, look pucking bad.
We’ll be the first to admit, hockey can get pretty misogynistic at times, but it’s always in good fun. There are plenty of women who go to hockey games for the right reasons, and those are the best kind of women. Whether they actually just love the game (imagine that), they know a player, etc., there are great reasons women should be attending hockey games.
Pucking any of the players is definitely not one of them.
When it comes to hockey bunnies, it’s likely a trend that’s here to stay for quite some time. We may not be able to beat them, but we can definitely continue to make fun of them. Try spotting a puck bunny at your team’s next game, and at the very least, you’ll have a souvenir of the common hockey bunny in her natural habitat; unwanted, and with a lonely night of heavy-duty makeup remover in her future.
