Stanley Cup Finals Beard Appreciation Post

At 8pm EST tonight, the puck will drop on THE greatest sports champion series in the world. Obviously, we’re slightly biased because we pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe hockey since we’ve started this blog.  I mean, not like we didn’t follow hockey closely before WUYS but we’ve progressed to a Beautiful-Mind-writing-on-the-window level of crazy.  But […]

Congratulations, Chuck!

Chuck, for your grad school graduation, we all pitched in and got you a present. Haha, who are we kidding?! We’d never get you someone from Harvard! Congratulations!

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Alternate Captains

The letter “A” is awarded only to the best. Students with the highest scores. Products with the best quality. Restaurants with the cleanest kitchens. We all know Alvin didn’t lead The Chimpmunks just because he had the best dance moves. The very presence of an “A” denotes greatness. We love (OK, worship) our NHL team […]

Pancakes Makes French Toast – Carter Tricks for Hats

The Kings devastated the Coyotes last night in more ways than one. The Coyotes bit back and not in a nice way. I was going to take the high road in this post and talk about how adorable Antoine Vermette was in his pre-game interview but then the Coyotes took a page from the Penguin’s book […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Stanley Cup Beard of the Year finalists emerge

In case you missed it yesterday, check out our post from Puck Daddy! In this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the fates select which beards will have a chance to realize their true potential. Five teams remain. Five beards (OK, six) have emerged as top contenders for Beard of the Year. None of these teams made it […]

You Give Us ABBA and I Raise You A LMFAO – Viktor

I’m in love AGAIN! But that’s OK. It happens all the time. Y’all are used to it by now. With the hunt for Lord Stanley in full swing the rest of the World has this going on. Look closely for the dancing ping pong players circling in the background. There are better things I can […]

Pants vs. Chuck – The Final Showdown

So here we go. 7:30pm tonight. Washington Capitals vs. Boston Bruins. Battle of the Blog: Pants vs. Chuck – The Final Showdown. Remember back to your history class when they talked about the gun battle at the OK Corral? Tonight’s Bruins vs Caps game is going to be just like that. Only with hockey sticks […]

This is Your Captain Speaking…

If I were ever on a sinking ship, I’d want to look across the deck and see Jonathan Toews in charge of the lifeboats because you know everyone is getting to safety in a single file line holding their toothbrush and enough money to call home. I do go on about Tazer, particularly the game […]

Weekend Hangover

I don’t hate fighting as much as some other people. What I dislike is hypocrisy. Philly has never made any apologies for who they are. What shocked me was  Matt Cooke managed to stayed out of the fray. Pittsburgh needs to decide quickly if they are going to play as a team to stay in […]

Happy Friday the 13th – Best Day for Hockey!

Last night was a heart breaker when the Caps lost in OT to Boston – I’m sure Ovi had this Nightmare:  And Seidenberg tried to take Ovi out with this hit but he found that weebles wobble but they don’t fall down! If Ovi can knock Jagr into next year at the Olympics, you’ll have to try harder Siddy-bergy than […]

Kilroy Was Here

There is no accounting for taste in our household. Traitors abound. Mr. Cherrie is a hard-core Buffalo fan.  But when I went to consult my bookie, I mean my oracle- the great swami Osiris Jones, man about town and counselor at law, when he’s not picking NHL play-off games for cat treats, much to my horror this is what […]

Battle of the Blog: Pants vs. Chuck (again)

Last night was yet another Battle of the Blog: Pants vs. Chuck. Pants won. You know who didn’t win?  (I mean besides me and the Bruins, of course.) Johnny Boychuk and Joe Vitale At 6:45 of the 3rd period, Boychuk collided awkwardly with Arron Asham and crumpled to the ice. I screamed “Boychuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkkkkkkkk Nooooooooooooooooo.”  Immediate *facepalm* […]

Hockey Homework

As some of you maybe aware, I am in my final semester of grad school (yay!).  It’s been three lo000000000ng years of working full-time, while taking classes, and trying to manage somewhat of a normal social life. The joy I will feel come graduation day in May….you have no idea…. One of my classes this […]

Must See TV

Do yourself a favor. Click on the image below. Watch the video. Totes brilliant, right?  LOVE IT!! Screen capping GOLD!

Honorable Mentions That Don't Get Mentions

Erik Karlsson is on fire and not mentioned – AT ALL – here. I have been loving him for some time now that the Captials season has been in the crapper with Dale Hunter Hockey. It gave me a chance to watch some other teams I may not have noticed.  Ottawa was not supposed to […]

Mikey Monday: GRRRRRR

The Capitals had a case of the Mondays all weekend.  And not the kind of Monday we like. This is supposed to be the positive, ‘We can do it!’ place but frankly, my optimism is a little flat. So I’m going to say nothing and wait for tonight’s game against Detroit.  Then I promise to […]

Sh*t Nobody Says – Pittsburgh Edition

As the resident Ovechkin fan, I’m used to being odd-man-out so I’m just going to go for it today in this edition of: With the return of Crosby, is it REALLY a good idea? I give you the following reasons: 1. Chemistry – Malkin is ON F*CKING FIRE. His run for the Hart trophy could be […]

Rally Monkeys

This overtime, come-from-behind, shootout nonsense is taking years off my life. The Capitals rallied from a 0-3 deficit to beat the NY Islanders in a shootout last night.  Foxy Friday John Tavares had 2 G + 1 in the shootout, and so did Ovi.  OVI!  I don’t like you but I love you and that’s […]

The Kid Stays in the Picture

So. Much. Happy. Hurrah for Gabe Landeskog on one hell of a game. After missing the pre-game skate with flu-like symptoms, he somehow managed to tough it out and score the game-winning goal (his 4th GWG of the season) versus the Kings in OT last night. When I have the flu, all I want to do […]

Calling in Sick

Hey look, somebody with all their clothes on! Sorry, it’s Monday and I’m punchy.  Plus I can’t get past this goal from Saturday night.  The Flyers and Maple Leafs went all of regulation and overtime waiting for this one.  Claude Giroux with the ridiculous shootout game-winner: Are you kidding me?  It’s so beautiful I want […]
