It began as just a normal Thursday on Hockey Twitter. A couple of rumors here, some news there. Then, the Colorado Avalanche decided to bless us with several (and that’s downplaying it significantly) Cale Makar-related tweets.
First came the photos of Cale in a garbage bag:
Next came the behind-the-scenes pictures of a photoshoot for Hockey Fights Cancer (the official photos will be released during the season):
Then came the behind-the-scenes video footage of Cale putting on his pre-tied lavender tie, and a fairly familiar suit jacket:
Also, apparently the Avalanche are starting a new video series starring their fans’ favourite vegetable:
And to top it all off, we then learned that Cale has a weakness for slurpees:
I've been asking NHL players what their biggest impulse purchase has been over the last 12 months. Colorado Avalanche rookie Cale Makar's answer was so pure.— Emily Kaplan (@emilymkaplan) September 5, 2019
"Umm.. the other day I was driving and I stopped to buy myself a slurpee. I wouldn't usually do that, but I did."
Needless to say, the flurry of Cale content was well-received by Avs fans:

If you guys don't nickname him "Slurpee", or something related, then I don't even know what you're doing.— cassie (@dagmar27) September 5, 2019
Happy Thursday, Avalanche fans! Now I need to lie down.
