Last Friday, I struggled to choose a Foxy Friday who was healthy and playing. One man heard my plea, and so returned to the lineup that very night. A real American hero.
Foxy Friday: Paul Martin
Paul missed two games to injury, getting back in the lineup on 11/15 with an assist in the Pens slump-busting 4-1 win over Nashville. But Paul wasn’t done helping me out personally after just one game. He’s not a halfway kind of guy.
That’s Paul with the first goal on Wednesday night vs. Washington, assuring that I would not look a total fool in front of my Capitals friends. It nearly sent me tumbling out of the 400s in my Crosby jersey because I jumped up so fast (@raedanda may have pushed me a little).
It’s been a good week for Paul, who reportedly will find himself on the Penguins top power play unit tonight vs. the Islanders. It’s a big deal to replace Kris Letang, who QB’s Pittsburgh’s man-advantage and has 71 career PP points. After a few rough years and endless trade rumors, Paul Martin is having a good year.

Looking pensive while wearing glasses:
Being vaguely embarrassed by the style decisions of youth:
Making sure we’re okay when our boyfriend leaves us for another team:
Bringing us a new boyfriend for distractionary purposes:
Getting a tan:
Just kidding. How about making breakfast?
People cuddles (a guess, based on this awesome #boyfriendsweater):
Paul, what do you think?
There you have it, a Foxy Friday to be thankful for. We bet Paul, with his aforementioned American-ness and football skills, is probably a hit at Turkey Day too. WUYS-tested, mother approved.
Happy Thanksgiving!Tags: paul martin, Pittsburgh Penguins
