I cannot go away for one second! It’s like Toy Story in here – I go outside and everything suddenly comes to life. Where to begin?
#TeamEbs took over the NHL Instagram account and used the opportunity to make fun of Molly Ringwald.
Our favorite boy band also introduced an act at the Canadian Country Music Awards. (All the things I love – hockey, Canada, country music – in one place.)
The NHL had their Media Day and Sidney Crosby took his hockey stick to the prom (again).
John Tavares was named the 14th captain of the USS NY Islanders. Just when you think it can’t get more adorkable, he says “heck” in his speech, wears black shorts with black shoes and just about kills us all. (Press conference | Interview)
He also did a… workout video. That should be Rated R. Hey! I am not the one who says “explosive hip thrusts” fifty times.
Proof that JT91 is the nicest: Everyone says “Tavahhhres” while John says “TavAIRes.” I bet he never corrects anyone.
Also, the Hawks went to a Bears game.
Resulting in the best Tweet of the weekend:
The Penguins annual season ticket delivery happened. This would need to take place with said Penguin being delivered to my house in an ambulance, then my mom could drive him home after the EMTs take me away.
As per usual, Crosby went to zero houses where anyone under 60 lives. He did sweat his was handsomely through the attention.
What’s cuter than awkward Sid? GENO! I have missed you! He is 12 feet tall and doesn’t brush his hair. Those are some Russian jeans he’s got on too. Who cares?! I want to hug him.
You can see them all at the Pens website, including this moment where Neal signs a baby.
Speaking of Penguins, it’s JStaal’s birthday today. I miss him. Let’s all take a moment to wish the Canes a good season, and then eat some cake.
This happened two weeks ago and I never even saw it – The Mike Green Clinic on What Shoes to Wear With Golf Shorts:
Do you think d-men like Green and Seabs enjoy seeing scorers like Stammer and Bergy in the off-season? One more from this tournament…
That’ll teach me to go on vacation. Just wait until the season starts! I may not survive. I’m sure there’s more right now but I must work because that Game Center Live bill is coming soon too.
(Who am I kidding? Start that workout video again.)
