We Are Never, Ever, Ever…

Lockout, Day 11: Anger Management 

Since I have nothing better to do than troll the internet while self-medicating with Taylor Swift songs, I’ve found a few gems.  The kind that make you smile and cry at the same time.

Bleacher Report: 50 Storylines the NHL Lockout is Making Us Miss

It took me a few tries to get through the whole list, I was getting so upset.  Is/Was this the year that Ebs-Hall-RNH and the Oilers get that turnaround?  Is there something uglier than Nashville’s third jersey waiting for us?  How about Movember – WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?!  Then this:

Can we get a close-up?

Grilled Cheese vs. PB&J

Aaaggghhhwellllp.  That is so hot.  I had almost forgotten that I ship this hatred as much as any bromance in the League.  Just NOT THE FACE, okay?  Don’t mess up my view from this side of the glass.

Not that I’ve forgotten how morning-after, walk-of-shame bad it looked for the Pens at the end of last season.  Or the fact that Giroux was so scary good he should have at least been nominated for the Hart Trophy.  That is some blasphemy coming from a Pens fan who is also completely fanflail over Stamkos.  But it’s true!  I hate him, I hate him, he’s amazing.  GAH!

Giroux making Sid’s android emotion chip short circuit always reminds me of:


How’s the wrist holding up?

The best part of this?  It’s not going anywhere.  No matter how long it takes to get back to hockey, these two will still hate each other.  It’ll even get better, since Sid will be back in full force and full-time (however long that is).  Bonus for me: concentrating on the Pens/Flyers rivalry eases my traitorous heartache about loving the Capitals at the same time.  Slut.

So in these dark days, hold on to the fact that life will be this:

vs. this again someday.

  1. I can’t decide what I love more: the “grilled cheese vs PB&J” comment or that tiger pic. Awesome.

    Now I’m going to take a preventative Xanax and commence reading that lockout list…

  2. Are there any anti-hormonal meds I can take before looking at this list? I don’t think my lady bits would survive.

  3. since you came down (no pun intended) on the side of crosby…

    Glad to know I’m not the only traitor out there. PensCapsBruins (In that order)…

    I really miss the hatred those two have for each other. And for the record, I fully support #teamginger.

    OMG this post (as relating to Crosby/Giroux)– it is my life. As a fellow Pens fan with slutty tendencies towards the Caps and a secret, shame filled love for a couple Flyers (mainly Giroux and Briere- and kinda, sorta Hartnell so long as he’s off the ice) I feel your pain!

    Pens-Hawks-Caps, that’s my poison.

      Melissa, I think you’re my soul mate. Pens/Caps/Hawks (Bolts/Canes) in that order. And my love for Danny Briere. I’m a terrible person.

    GAH!!! Oh, Captain, my Captain…and I really HATE that I have to agree with ya’ll about that damn Soul-Sucking Ginger! He’s HAWT AND so freaking talented it’s scary! He’s one of those that you wish you had on your team, but hate because he isn’t. However, there is NO Caps love here (well, except an admiration for Brooks & Holts) and NO Flyer love, either. For me, it’s Pens-Bruins-Hawks.

    I am #teamginger all the way! Gingeroux has worked his way into my heart with that glorious, glowing beard of his.

    And I think we all have our slutty ways with teams – Bruins/Rangers/Wherever-Dustin-Penner-Is.

    Haha! How’s the wrist holding up?

    On a sadder note:
    You never know, ALL rivalries may end over all this player solidarity… Plus, according to some, Bettman may have been planning this lockout for as long as five years. Who knows if we’ll ever have hockey again.

    Physical activity can provide an outlet for your emotions, especially if you’re about to erupt. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other favorite physical activities. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that can leave you feeling happier and more relaxed than you were before you worked out. ;*;’
