Time Over Time

Sundays should be easy.  Could someone please inform my hockey teams? Penguins 2, Flyers 1 – OT The past two seasons, the Flyers have ended big win streaks for the Pens.  Not last night!!  It took a while, until Crosby PPGed so hard he almost fell over.  He is a little back-heavy, after all. .gif by […]

Double-oh my goodness.

You may recall I once insisted Bauer was falsely advertising their “base layer” collection by featuring all hockey players and no underwear. They didn’t quite hear me, but they may have understood some of my International Sign language.   That’s right.  My hair-tossing and reasonable facsimile of the Kid N’ Play dance meant please do […]

Caps Fan Appreciation Night

If there’s one thing I like more than hockey, it’s food.  Last night the Capitals Fan Appreciation Night had free hockey AND free food. So of course we were in the front row. Rockin’ the Red with Rae and Pam For this… BAM!  No beard.  Hallelujah and also merci.  I’ll give you the hair, Greener, […]

Global Warming: Sweden

Meanwhile in Russia, guess who remains perfect and is scoring a lot of points? Of course it’s Piglet.  He looks pretty fond of Ms. Pink Recorder-And-Mani combo too.  Or maybe he’s just happy with himself for having 5 goals and 5 assists in his last 4 games for Dynamo Moscow. This, this, a thousand times […]

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 […]

Don't Be Hatin'

Ok, I’m starting this off with I don’t hate the Vancouver Canucks. I just happen to LOVE the LA KINGS – even more so after seeing them last night. Look at the play-off beard! If Pants was worried about me when we went to see Ovi in SJ in my outfit, she should have chaperoned […]

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 […]

Because It's The Cup Campaign

So when this campaign started the feedback was terrible so they adjusted it STAT because it was like the MasterCard ad, the Hockey Discover Card and “I Just Want My Pants Back” had a drunken three way, someone got pregnant and no one wanted to take responsibility for the monster that came of it. Hockey fans will […]

An Open Letter To Ted Leonsis

I simply have to vent this and get it off my, ah, proverbial chest ladies. As the resident Ovi fan and Captials fan, I know this will come as shock, but I AM SO MAD AT HIM, at them, at the WORLD and have been for some time and I just have to say and get it […]

Uphill Battle

The emotional roller coaster that is the Washington Capitals delivered another Ovechkin overtime winner last night.  They should give out blood pressure medication with programs. As I said after the Islanders games, we’ll take the point(s).  But the 60 minutes of sloppy, uneven play and constant turnovers it took to get there are infuriating.  When […]

Moves Like Mc Swagger

Ovi can rap as good as he can play hockey! He guests on Russian rapper Sasha Belyi’s song and appears in the video. Check it out … it’s HILARIOUS but he lay it down. He might not be able to dance and you probably won’t see me on the dance floor with him – at least not […]

Mike Green Plays Tonight!

QUICK, HUG SOMETHING!!  Mike Green will be in the Caps lineup tonight vs. Calgary. Careful, Ovi.  He’s very fragile.  We need this to be a long-term committed relationship so don’t go getting it all on the first date. No word yet from Nicky… he’s busy.  

Let's Get Loud

You guys are the best.  Mike Green starts Tweeting and our phone rings off the hook!  FOUND PANDA, people! Mike was as excited as Gator and I about the Caps putting together a serious, solid win.  Ovi had a goal (haven’t typed that in a long time), Nicky and Jeff Halpern each 1 G/1 A, […]

New Coach, New Girlfriend, New Attitude?

So Ovi has a new coach, a new girlfriend so let’s hope that leads to a new attitude! Right? Well if the first game was any indication, I might jump ship – WHAT?! Just kiddding. That sound you just heard was Pants and Chuck simulatenously dropping over. I’m  so excited for the battle of the hotties […]

Bye Bye, BB.

The Capitals have fired Bruce Boudreau and replaced him with NHL alum and first-time head coach Dale Hunter. It’s the same sort of surprise when you fall out of a tree hit the ground.  It was probably inevitable, but you’re still a little shocked to find that this is the time.   You thought it […]

Birthday Boy: Nick Backstrom

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICKY B! Thank you to @thisisourjamdc for reminding the zombies here at WUYS that today is the 24th birthday of our favorite Swede, Piglet Nicklas Backstrom. We worked till 2:30 AM, were up for work at 5:30 AM.  We both travel at the crack of dawn tomorrow.  This is the only reason Gator […]

Free Mustache Rides for Movember

Since Ovi is obligated to shave with his Gillette contract –  he’s out. Plus he’s in dire need of a hug. And Kris Letang has been shaving which is a total shame because I sometimes like the wolverine look – but I can wait for the playoffs because that look can get old really fast. […]

Thriller Night

Nicky, I’m sorry I passed up your game to go to the movies.  Tower Heist was funny, but we could have rented it on DVD and had a WUYS office slumber party.  Still, it’s just one night.  There is no need to try to kill me. When I got into the car and turned on […]

If Dawn Were Here…

Does anyone know what magazine these are from?  An exhaustive three minute Google search yielded nothing.  But the interview is hiliario. Goals or assists? Goals. Stanley Cup or gold medal? Both. American or Russian hockey fans? Russian. Because they’re more knowledgeable? Because they’re Russian. Moscow or DC? Moscow in the summer. Italian suit or jeans […]

Mikey Monday: Blustery Day

It’s a really slow day and this picture has been lurking around my inbox forever.  Dawn sent it, presumably trying to impress us with Ovi’s shorts.  Or because he’s wearing a Coach’s Corner t-shirt. But all I see is this. Am I wrong?  There’s this: And this.  I could go on all day. Mike has […]
