Currently this team and RL are both fairly stressful, and so I have ended up investing most of my feelings about both in Olli Maatta instead. On one hand, this has been a bit traumatic in the last week! On the other hand, it means that I pretty much could not have gotten a better present today, which is Olli getting interviewed by Trevor, intrepid Junior Reporter (Edit: new link.

CHILDREN INTERVIEWING CHILDREN. Seriously, this is a tall awkward child being interviewed by a shorter and somewhat less awkward child. I swear they make some of the same faces. And both so earnest!

And honestly I almost want to make a transcript of the entire thing, because it is so great. Olli went as "an Oktoberfest guy" for Halloween, lederhosen and all! He likes Pittsburgh because it's smaller than NYC and gets quiet in the evenings! He also goes into some detail about his warmup routine before practice (20 mins on bikes and doing calesthenics) and his routine before games (he arrives 2.5 hours before hand to deal with equipment and stuff). He watches a lot of movies and reads a book occasionally.

Basically if you happen to be writing Olli Maatta fic (*cough*), this is GOLDEN while also being charming and adorable. You just want to pinch the cheeks of everyone on the screen. I am SO CHARMED.

I'm not sure who Trevor, intrepid Junior Reporter, is or how he got this gig (lucky guy!), but my first thought when I saw the gif set was that he could be Olli's little brother. With less spiky hair. They do make an adorable twosome.
