Goals and Goals

I pity the fool who answers the NHL TV customer service line when I call today. Well, the person won’t be a fool, nor can they actually do anything about the disaster of a changeover from Game Center Live. But still. I don’t pay $150 a year to miss Sidney Crosby hat tricks! Last night, Sid […]

The Kids Would Be Proud

Once upon a time there was an All-Star Weekend that reminded me how much I love hockey.  Well, that happens every year. But this weekend, like so much of this season, I didn’t actually get to watch anything. GAH! What follows is the best I was able to mash up from Twitter and my imagination… […]

Cruel Summer

In this holiday season of lists, allow me to read from a list that I keep all year: Times I Don’t Care That You Insist on Wearing  Chain   That’s it. That’s the whole list. I will also begin a new list: Reasons We Have 47 Twitter Notifications Before 10 AM The single listed item will […]

Only Weird if it Doesn’t Work

Today really got away from me – because I spent it recovering from last night, when this happened:   Instant, full-volume inner monologue:   It’s a understatement to say  the Crosbot is off to a slow start this season. With 3 G and 7 A, his 10 points rank him 134th in the League. This from a […]

Stars in 2016

It’s election time in the US – wait, not really. We have another year of this crap! But one hockey squad isn’t missing the chance to fast track their big campaign: The Dallas Stars really want to be your favorite team. Campaign Strategy #1: Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin have all the points.   Combined, Seguin & Benn have 44 […]

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 – […]

Pens and… that’s a Pig

GAAAHHHH! The start of hockey season is racing past while I am so busy at work. Leave it to this to get me out of the office…   IT’S A PIG! Named Truffles! It is in the Pens & Paws annual animal rescue calendar and isn’t it precious?! You can see the whole video here. […]

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 […]

Tyler Tuesday: Beep Beep

Beep Beep! Who’s got the keys to the Jeep? Vrrrroooooommmm! Tyler recently shot a commercial for Starwood Motors in Dallas. You can watch them here and here but fair warning – they are hella awkward. Name me a single hockey player commerical that isn’t.   Apparently Starwood Motors sells kevlar-coated Jeeps.  Yes. Kevlar. As in the same […]

Tyler Tuesday: Magically Delicious

Chuck here, bringing you a much needed dose of Tyler Tuesday – St.Patrick’s Day Edition! While my RLJ (real life job) has kept me pretty busy, fret not, my little leprechauns! Today, I have the perfect Tyler-size pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.   Tyler Seguin is lucky charms, people.     P.S. If […]

Jackpot! (I had to.)

The Penguins traded their annual Skates & Plates waiter gear for other ill-fitting suits this year and hosted Aces & Ice Casino Night last night. It looked like the World’s Most Awkward Wedding Party. But two drinks in, the bridesmaids are yelling, “DIBS!” and making shanks out of bobby pins. The dads, like Alison’s dad there on […]

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. […]

You love Jonathan Toews

I can’t resist hockey players and kids, and no one can resist Girl Scout cookies. Not the Blackhawks, not Andrew Shaw and not Jonathan Toews. Video: #WhatsYourGoal: Alexis wants to sell cookies to Jonathan Toews In the video, Captain CharmingPants is back, and this time, he irons. Which is the only thing on Earth he isn’t […]

The Good Lie

In his latest and greatest Valentine’s Day video, Cabbie gets Tyler and Jamie to prank their mothers by announcing they will propose to their respective girlfriends on Valentine’s Day.  Girlfriends their mothers have never met, because they aren’t real.   We here at WUYS hold a few truths to be self-evident: 1) Cabbie for President – of […]

Pens & Pins

A snappy headline escapes me today, but the annual Pens & Pins charity event was held last night, and look who was looking good.   PensTV has a video feature from the event. Everyone is always having so much fun, from the players to the kids. And who wouldn’t? Bowling makes awkward lumps of us all […]

Now That Was Fun

I wrote 90% of this before the the All-Star Game started last night, and changed very little afterward.  My opinion was the same: Best ASG weekend ever.  Sure the setup is wonky, the events kind of hokey. Who cares? It’s supposed to be fun, and dammit, it was really fun!   Thanks to the players […]

Takin’ It Back

Last night, MSG network premiered their “Beginnings” series episode about everyone’s hot middle school science teacher, John Tavares. I didn’t get to see the show, but it re-airs Friday at 10:30 PM.  Verizon Fios carries MSG almost everywhere, so I’ll finally get my million-dollar cable bill’s worth! For now, I’ll survive on these clips – MSG: […]

Dress You Up in My Love

We were talking yesterday about Patrick Kane’s rise to All-Star domination (save for one Latvian).  Well on last week’s Wednesday Night Rivalry broadcast on NBC Sports Network, the broadcasters dropped another interesting piece of info: Patrick Kane was the best-selling NHL jersey for 2014. Surprised? I was, a little, I admit. Not Crosby, after his […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Hello friends! I know what you’re thinking – who is this loser trying to sit with us in the cafeteria like we’re friends, when she’s barely talked to us in the last three months! Guilty as charged. It’s hard to believe it’s the end of the year already. It was a rough one for me […]

8(7+1) Days of Christmas

@raedanda sends me the best work emails! Today it was this KDKA-TV sneak preview of the WHIRL Magazine January cover shoot with everybody’s boyfriends: That’s right – pre-mumps Crosby and Geno, part-time models.  You know I live for shots of Sid putting on his jersey (3:15 mark, someone gif that please). Put this January issue […]
