By popular demand, this week’s Foxy Friday is Wednesday’s playoff hero:
Brent Seabrook, bastion of blueline presence for the Chicago Blackhawks, had some unprecedented struggles at the start of the Hawks’ Western Conference semifinal vs. Detroit. He was not the only one. But when Seabs could hardly be there for himself, when he was getting a paltry12 minutes of ice time and Chicago’s future was rim, he was still looking out for his teammates.
In the end, Brent scored the Game 7 OT winner that made a lot of us do this:
When he’s not stopping heartbeats and playoff skids, Seabs is involved in more bromances than even we can handle. Obviously Duncan Keith is his OTP and the feeling is mutual. Brent’s younger brother is named Keith, so there is a Keith Seabrook in this world. If that wasn’t meant to be, I don’t understand life.
When Coach Q broke up their on-ice LTR, things got bad. You won’t see that mistake again.
But don’t forget Toews, who sometimes looks at Seabrook so longingly you know he’s wondering how he ended up with Kane.
Stuck in the middle with you.
And Seabrook once (maybe) blew Kane a kiss on the ice after Patty assisted on a goal. FLIRT. Here’s the video evidence, you be the judge.
So what is it about Brent Seabrook that gets everyone all swoony? If being 6’3″, Canadian and making $7 million this year aren’t enough…
He’s won the Cup.
He adopts rescue dogs, names them Stanley and puts them in the Cup. Also he wears the same socks as everyone husband/boyfriend/brother.
He has the best widow’s peak this side of The Munsters.
Seriously, his hair.
(Brent’s wife Dayna is pregnant – please let the baby be born with his dad’s ‘do.)
He and his hair are part-time models:
He had a cardboard groomsman at his wedding. (I don’t know the story, but I wish I’d thought of this!)
Speaking his brother, and of their hair… is that Thor?
He even organizes charity events to benefit inner city schools. Good deeds and bowling and reading? Date night!
You can spend tomorrow evening with Brent and the Blackhawks as they begin the WCF against LA. Game time is 5 PM Eastern. Of course, you’ll have to share date night with the rest of us… but I’m pretty good at bowling.
