Mic Check

Canada is getting everything right lately. First, they elect Patrick Sharp Han Solo this guy Prime Minister. Then they offer to run for President of the United States. And in case they don’t win, they invite us all north for 4 to 8 years. And now, this:   Kidding! Okay, not really. An in-goal wine rack? […]

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 […]

Foxy Friday: Liam O’Brien

Some Friday posts are hard work: weeding through photos, combing through Tumblrs and Twitters for pictures that demonstrate exactly what we’re trying to say about the week’s honoree.  Not today, friends.  Today was easy. Foxy Friday: Liam O’Brien Type “Liam O’Brien Capitals” into a Google search and one click gives you enough photos to fill a […]

Foxy Friday: Charlie Coyle

For those of you who may not know, Pants and I are proud alumnae of Boston University, Class of We’ll-Never-Tell-For-Fear-Of-Revealing-Our-True-Ages.  BU is a college hockey powerhouse and consistently produces NHL players. Right now there are a plethora of former Terriers representing in the big show – Nick Bonino, Alex Chiasson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colin Wilson, and […]

Please, Hertl, Don’t Hurt ‘Em

Hertl for Calder. Okay, so perhaps it is a bit premature to be saying that, but after what Tomas Hertl did last night, can you really blame us? The San Jose Sharks rookie forward scored 4 goals (!) last night.  Each goal he scored was more impressive than the one before and his piece de […]

Oilers Got Talent

Is everyone up in Edmonton drunk?  Or do they come up with (and execute) ideas like this while sober?  Either way, I think Edmonton is my heart’s true home.  “Oilers Got Talent” has the boys demonstrating some questionable skills that, to be honest, are about what we’d have to offer any pageant that wasn’t an […]

Make It Happen

Chuck had a dream last night that Jordan Eberle was her boyfriend.  Normally I would say that my work here is done, but Ebs and Co. will not be satisfied until they 1) lead the AHL and 2) convert you all. There’s still one holdout, she’s over there. The OKC Barons have won their last […]

Swedish Meatball

With summertime and real-life work responsibilities and vacations, things have been a little slow around the WUYS office lately. We’re running at like 50%, not able to post as much as we want and Intern Jeff Skinner is totally being a slacker.  He thinks he’s all hotshot with his new fancy contract. We don’t care, […]

I appreciate you, Nashville Predators.

There are lots of things that I love about playoff hockey. And although I’m a little disappointed with all the nasty play and dirty hits and the lack of respect that some players *coughraffitorres* have shown for their fellow players, there is something about this time of year that makes my heart just fill up […]

Bright Lights, Big City

Tonight is the premiere of HBO’s 24/7 Flyers/Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic.  And since I’ve re-watched Game of Thrones into oblivion, I will be tuning in to get my $10 worth for December. The WUYS crowd won’t be as excited as last season – including me, since I actively hate both of these […]

Intern Jeff Skinner Gets A Day Off

We work Jeffy pretty hard around here, what with all the photocopying and heavy lifting and runs to the store to get our supply of twizzlers and mexican coca-cola. But today, we decided to give him the day off. Because when you work THIS hard, you deserve it. Go Jeffy Go!

Speaking of Capt. Awesome.

Ovi crashed the Caps rookie camp yesterday and skated with the newbies! He sported the fashionable black jersey with his named slapped on the back and skated along with all the other young bucks. For being slagged as not so hands on (I protest & wish!) and for supposedly not being in shape – so not […]

Foxy Friday: Tyler Seguin

Let’s face it folks, it was only a matter of time before this post was going to happen. FOXY FRIDAY: Tyler Seguin On Monday, Tyler Seguin was just a baby caterpillar in his little cocoon.  On Tuesday, he emerged as a beauty butterfly with black and gold wings. Seguin is this week’s Foxy Friday because he has left a […]

Post-Victory Glow

Today has been a good day…despite the fact that it has been raining for 4 days straight and the sun is no where to be found. The reason it has been a good day is very simple. It is because of last night’s Bruins game and this guy… Tyler Seguin. It is because of you […]
