Sharp Dressed Men

Forgive me for having been away, as now I am talking about all the old things. I’m like your drunk aunt at Thanksgiving who starts telling a story someone else just finished telling. Trust me, you won’t mind hearing this one twice. Sharp Magazine wants men in Canada to have nice clothes and a classy lifestyle – […]

Who’s Scruffy Looking?

October, you beauty. We wait all year, and usually you arrive with a terrifying array of fresh mug shots or ransom photos calling themselves roster head shots. But this year, you have arrived in style.   Take this in: Sidney Crosby woke up on roster photo day and did not shave. Good gosh. He probably ironed the […]

Fiddle in the Band

Get it? “If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band”? No? Oh well. Country music problems. Today we have another guest training camp report, this time from Texas and courtesy of Brenda (@wishinonehand)! The day before Brenda was heading to Texas on vacation, she got a Facebook message from […]

Back in the Game

Hello internet! Hockey is upon us and I, for one, am not ready. Starbucks can sling all the pumpkin spice mochachocalattas they want, but it just doesn’t feel like fall until I see this: Okay, now it’s fall. Our friend Heather is a spare-time ace photographer, and took these gorgeous shots at Penguins training camp. In […]

Foxy Friday: You Tell Us

Happy National Hairstyle Appreciation Day! Okay, it was yesterday. How this is 1) a holiday or 2) occurs without our say-so is a mystery, but it’s never too late to join in the, er, appreciating. Especially on a Friday. I’ve very scientifically chosen the photos below.  Browse them – and we mean Take. Your. Time. (For example, […]

Foxy Friday: Tristan Harper

47 feet of snow on the ground. People jumping off their roofs into snow banks.  Wind chills of -20F. While I suffer through this historic Boston winter, I got a little something to warm me (and you) up. (full disclosure: I am writing this post after a copious amount of sake. I am not responsible for my actions. […]

Tyler Tuesday: Weapon of Mass Distraction

My appreciation of all things Tyler Seguin is not news to anyone who reads this blog or follows us on the twitter. At first, my friends did not understand my love for #19/91.  They couldn’t see “it”.  But slowly, over time, their resolve weakened and they willingly joined me on the dark side.  I’ve welcomed […]

The NHL A(wk)wards

Two posts in two days? This place is like Santa’s Workshop! Last night was the annual NHL Awards, or as we like to call it: the NHL A(wk)wards. Normally an unfunny, bumblingly-hosted, C-list celebfest, last night’s show was most of those things again. But better, no? I confess to liberal use of the mute button, […]

Hey, Big Spender.

If we had to brainstorm events we’d pay good money for, Sidney Crosby delivering dessert and wine would be up there on the list. The Penguins’ annual Skates & Plates event was held last night, where the players wait tables, raise funds for charity and try not to spill food on people.  (I’d take care […]

Know When to Hold ‘Em

Someday I’ll go to a hockey team’s Casino Night.  Someday I’ll have $250 to spend on an event that doesn’t involve either Vegas or getting a tan.  Or they could move these to Vegas and I could do all three at once. The Caps and Islanders hosted casino nights last night.  The events benefit wonderful […]

Tyler Tuesday

Today marks what I hope will be a semi-annual feature extolling the virtues and magnificence of one very special person. Like my esteemed colleague Pants, and her undying love for Mike Green, my love and admiration for Tyler Seguin has become too great and all consuming for it to not have its own dedicated day. […]

Focus Features

If you’re the NHL’s First Star of the Week, you’re already having a time. It’s not really fair that you also look like this: Hi-res left/right Jeez, Stamkos.  Leave something for the mere mortals. These are (again) from the Sharp for Men November ’13 issue photo shoot.  You can download the issue for your iPad […]

Aaaaaaaaaaaand PUPPIES.

It’s been suggested the entire Penguins PR staff is made up of 20-something girls with excellent internet understanding. Based on today’s evidence, this court concurs. Penguins and Pets Calendar Shoot Puppies!  And cuddling!  And days of the week!  Wait, I got carried away.  Is this calendar delivered with an ice cream cake covered in sprinkles? […]

All the World’s a Stage

I got home and flipped on the TV last night and this was on.  There may have been shrieking. Tavares shows Roenick around the ice – NBC Sports Network (If you’re in Canada, enjoy this budget version filmed off my TV, complete with crickets singing outside.) I can promise you this will go on all […]

Fashion Island

The NY Islanders are really making a play for prominence both on the ice and in the New York media, all before their 2015 move to Brooklyn. I did not enjoy how close they came in last year’s playoffs vs. the Penguins.  But I do enjoy anyone taking on the the Rangers because, well, I […]

Interview with a…

Be honest. Henrik Lundqvist is probably a vampire. I read a lot of young adult fiction, which clearly qualifies me as an expert on this topic.  Not just Twilight, but Chuck and I are racing through The Mortal Instruments series and everyone’s saying we need to read Vampire Academy.  My point was proven yesterday when […]

Summer Nights

Oh for heaven’s sake.  Come home from tropical vacation, depressed about going back to work?  Sidney Crosby to the rescue. [Sorry y’all, copyrighted photos from this post were removed by request.  You’ll have the survive on screencaps from the CTV interview linked below.] Sid and Brand Marchand took part in the Phoenix Night of Champions […]

Rock Your Body

As promised, Joffrey Lupul is naked in ESPN Magazine: The Body Issue. Saved it from Puck Daddy because they named the file “nakedlupul1.jpg.” His name is still Joffrey, which is unfortunate.  I bet he gets chills whenever Arya whispers her list. Here’s a whole gallery of behind the scenes photos from this year’s Body Issue […]

Up Close and…

Check out these gorgeous pictures from Carmen Mandato Photography. Large, hi-res versions are on the website along with a few shots of other teams. People have asked if she’ll have prints available for sale.  She’s on Facebook too. God, don’t you just love hockey?  And wish you had longer eyelashes?  And feel relieved that no […]

Picture Perfect

Gabe Landeskog is featured in McDonald’s presents Time Out in Sports Illustrated, the same one that featured Intern Jeff Skinner a while back. We sent Jeff out of the office before watching this because he gets a little jealous.   Jealous of Gabe, I mean.  Not our reactions to Gabe, which are mostly me giggling […]
