Here you are in your Team Whatever jersey, wearing patriotic mittens, when you find out one (or more) of your favorite NHL players didn’t make their respective Olympic team. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. For two solid weeks in February, you’re invited to our party. Okay, it’s probably going to look more like this: But […]
The holiday season is here! We have stuffed our faces and basked in food coma. We’ve broken out the ski socks and mittens. I watched 5 straight episodes of Covert Affairs before bothering to check if I could fast forward the commercials. Now that we’re back after American Thanksgiving, everyone is ready to work: Movember is […]
There is video from yesterday’s Team Canada ball hockey game. The players all look so happy – almost as happy as I would be if this were a t-shirt shop and I had a bag full of Canadian money. Collect all 48! There are moments when, as part of the unfreezing process, you have no […]
Since we couldn’t attend Canada on Saturday evening, welcome Alison (@alisonsykora) with a guest post! I told myself I didn’t care anymore. The lockout was dragging and NHL hockey was no longer a part of my life. I had accepted it and moved on. Then the RBC Charity Challenge happened. “Mwhahahaha,” said Stamkos. The NHLPA […]
When Mr. Pants and I boarded our flight in Houston on Saturday, I had NO idea there would be individual TVs on the plane. Then I saw the All-Star Game Skills Competition was on. I may have screamed. One swipe of the AMEX later, I was sitting an inch from the screen with a huge […]
And I don’t like San Jose but they have an AWESOME PR team who makes these OUTRAGEOUSLY funny campaigns. Let the ad wars begin. This one’s for you Pants since you love Logan – post-rookie of your life.
The only upside to this is now Logan Couture and I have more time to practice the Justin Bieber dance routine we’re going to perform when he wins the Calder Trophy in Vegas. Okay Eastern Conference. Give me something to care about!
Now that you won’t be able to get this song out of your head, it’s the battle of the Super Twins, Count Von Count-anyone-can-do-this-job VS. Jumbo Scrimp (Oxy-Maroon), I’m-still -Cryin’ Patty Mar-where’s-the-loo and Logan Haute-Couture. Who will win the West-Coast Battle for the Cup? I called Vancouver in the Wayback Machine. On the East Coast […]
I leave the Bay Area and NOW YOU WIN!?!?! If my other teams were in it I’d be so mad at you. But beggars can’t be choosers and you guys let us drink on Caltrain so… YAY SHARKS. I hug you! Not only did you beat Detroit (insert me making siren noise here), but you […]
Who’s excited for tonight? Nervous? On Monday, Rookie of My Life Logan Couture posted this. It made me all teary-eyed like that Green Day “Time of Your Life” song. Not that 19 years is a long time in the hockey world. Or that you’d rather play 7 than win in 4. But way to be […]
I saved this photo back in March hoping someday I would get to use it. San Jose has a 2-0 lead on the Red Wings and I think now is the time for inspiration. For destruction. I saw a guy on the Metro in a Wings shirt yesterday and I wished for an octopus to […]
Shut the front door. Even Charlie Sheen isn’t winning like the Blackhawks – 6 in a row with 25 goals scored in that stretch. I can’t not post these! For some reason, it makes me want to sing this: Also the Sharks are on a crazy tear, and that’ll get a post this weekend. They’ve […]
As you well know, I bring Logan Couture good luck and he scores a goal every time I see the Sharks. Even when I’m rooting against them. Turns out it might not be me turning the cosmic tables in Logan’s favor: it’s The Bieber. He means London, Ontario. Because we all know the Biebs is […]
