Andrew Ference: Hipster
elqiao
Artsy Remix featuring The Grouch by edIT

Andrew Ference is a Boston Bruin and a Stanley Cup champion.


He is also a hipster.


A hipster is a hard thing to define, but the internet informs me hipsters often do things that Ference does.

They have facial hair.


They have tattoos.


They dress up in retro outfits.


Or in glasses and grandpa cardigans.


Or tshirts with really low necks.


They ride bicycles, preferably vintage.


They ride bicycles everywhere, even when carrying around something large and unwieldy.


They like indie music. Well, maybe Avicii's mainstream now, but he was big first in Sweden, y'know. They make sure their kids like indie music too.


But they don't mind showing their appreciation of 'too mainstream to be cool' pop music.



They like farmers markets.


They shop at Whole Foods and drink stuff like yerba mate.


They eat organic and compost the scraps. (video could not be embedded!)


They recycle.


They are up on internet memes.


They take pictures of themselves jumping.


They take macro pictures of ordinary objects.


They take pictures of landscapes.


They organize flashmobs.


And sometimes, they show a little attitude.


DISCLAIMER: This was done all in good fun & I hope no one thinks I actually dislike Ference in any way because the truth is pretty much the exact opposite. It's awesome that he has a full life outside of hockey and is really passionate about social issues. You definitely need to watch his series with National Geographic, Beyond the Puck.

I also have absolutely not a leg to stand on when it comes to making fun of people for acting like hipsters as I am posting this in my Brooklyn apartment while sitting next to my Dutch-style bike & fridge full of Trader Joe's.

BUT SERIOUSLY, I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF - JUST WATCH HIS CUP DAY VIDEO. FROM ACAI FOR BREAKFAST TO BIKING THE CUP AROUND BOSTON TO THE SOUNDTRACK OF EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROES TO THE FLASHMOB AND THE GRAPHIC TEES AND THE HEALTHY FOOD IN THE CUP AND AGHHHHH *CLAWS FACE*

Ference Day // Stanley Cup from Crafthouse Productions on Vimeo.



Also, general cuteness from the Cup Day.


I didn't even go into all the Ference - Seguin - Marchand - Lucic trolling or the fact that Ference is a decent dman, but this is already way too long and I'm tired of crying over Ference's life choices.


BONUS~
Fresh off the Twitter presses - we find out that Ference also guerrilla gardens (with his children!)
