Home of Hockey

VIRUS FREE! Opening Day! We are back and all is right with the world. This post is a few days old, but just as full of things I love about hockey starting today. Love, *P When I saw this: My first thought was: Then my interfriends kindly informed me this was from a commercial – […]

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 […]

Olympic Heartful

This afternoon, I watched the men’s 2010 Olympic gold medal game.  That one day, years ago, when everyone I knew was watching hockey.  They were Tweeting and Facebooking and cheering down the hall in my San Francisco apartment building while Chuck and I were shouting, “WE TOLD YOU HOCKEY IS AWESOME!” The Golden Goal was […]

Doughty’s Day with me, I mean the Cup …

So I’ve scoured the internet and there is like a BLIP one DD’s day with destiny. If it were, er, um, other hockey players day with Lord Stanley’s cup we’d get a minute by minute count down on what he did while out saving babies and evidently puppies. So I’ve decided to give the only […]

Kings Of The Road

If any of you have watched NBC’s Post Game wrap-up, then you know Other-Brother-Darryl needs to take that sh*t on the road! Because having handled talent and sat through countless hours of interviews and seen press chewed up and spat out by the best, Other-Brother-Darryl ranks right up there only he is god damn funny […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Unsung Unshaven Heroes

The stage is nearly set for the ultimate NHL showdown. The Devils and Rangers battle it out at center stage while the Kings wait in the offing for their opponent to be named. It’s a long, hard fight to be among the last teams standing. Every one inch is earned. This week, we salute the […]

Pancakes For Everyone – Uno, Dos, Adiós!

My cats have banned me from the TV. Osiris Jones actually mews at anyone who swears. True Story. And there was a ton of it tonight. I swear like a sailor and many of Mr. Cherrie’s friends think I learned it from him but actually, I taught him pretty much everything he knows. My grandfather worked […]


The great oracle Orisis Jones was right as far as part of the West Coast goes: Not since 1993 have the LA Kings been to a conference final and that was when the Great One played for them – as in Wayne Gretzky. The Kings have swept the #1 and #2 seed and yet the […]

Operation Havoc : Commander Doughty in Control

The Kings have lost only ONE play-off game to date. And after listening to the announcers last night, could they have made anymore snide/ weight remarks? Let me count them down for you: Doughty certainly is a well-rounded player Doughty just skated down the Blues bench and told them they’d have to be quicker than […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two Tickets To Paradise!

Hey Jumbo Joe … at least pick on someone your own size… Giving the West Coast some love and Mr. Cherrie too … for our anniversary – what better way to celebrate than seeing my beloved DDTBG in person! And on one of our favorite day of the year – FRIDAY THE 13th! Look out Vancouver – […]


So if Shanna-hammer works for the NHL … the CBJ’s think, no they KNOW God works for the LA King’s because HEstopped time last night so Drew Doughty could make the below posted game winner-winner donut dinner last night! That is the only explanation I can come up with but evidently the NHL is trying to come […]

DDTBG Game Winner!

Now if that’s not touched by god, I don’t know what is. Drew was due, that we knew. Should I make all this rhyme too? It was review-able but it was still do-able. But the refs said it was good, that made the CBJ’s bang their wood and Drew got a goal with only .04 […]

Happy Birthday Drew "touched by god" Doughty

You heard me right! Our wonder boy also got the midas touch this year with holding out for major contract ca$h to the ca-ching of $56 million over 8 years for my beloved #8. That post already went over how many donuts that would buy him. Today he turns a whopping 22 – OMG – December […]

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. […]

Kris Letang on Drew Doughty

Forget Foxy Friday … Here comes Sexy Saturday when the two hottest defenseman in the league go mono-e-mono in a rare denfense-fest meeting! It’s hard out there for a Penguin, sister – and this will be happy feet 58 meets Immortal 8– Get your tickets now! Because I’m hoping that one or both lose their jersey. […]

Breaking New$ For Number $, I mean #8

LA Kings just ended the stalemate with hottie Mc Hottieton Drew Doughty – $ years, I mean 8 years for $56 million donuts, I mean dollars. That means Drew can buy 56,565,656 diet cokes at $.99 each. Or 32,000,000 cupcakes at $1.75 each. Or 12,444,4444 4×4 at IN N OUT at $4.50 each. Now that […]

Desperate Times, Require Desperate Measures.

DDTBG is a no-show at training camp and he is the last hold out in the restricted free agent circle. I don’t think I would need to look far to find him. Anyone, anyone? Yeah … i went there AND sent a postcard – baby Drew! While I can appreciate what he wants, what I want […]
