Unusual is the day Chuck & I can be equally depicted by a single .gif: GAME SEVENS FOR ALL OUR TEAMS!  We’re supposed to love it, right?  This is what sports are all about? YES. PUNCHING.  I will see you guys tonight.  For additional inspiration, enjoy this video – and Sid’s beard, which I really do […]

Because it’s the Cup

Recently, Jess and I were quoting Sam from Love Actually and his brilliant, unintended summation of the NHL playoffs: Worse than the total agony of being in love? We’re almost there again.  The gut-wrenching, screaming-into-a-pillow, obsecenity-laden euphoria and destruction of the post-season. In past years, the NHL has come up with some great commercials to capture […]

Some Nights

To start the first period vs. the Islanders last night, James Neal scored his sixth goal of the season.  To end the period, he took a penalty. He’s too busy to fix his hair for interviews. NOPE.  It’ll be a sad, scoreless day in the ‘Burgh before Nealer doesn’t care about his flow. This .gif […]

Big Weekend

You know those movies where every single thing happens in one day and you’re thinking, “Right, who ever has a day like that?” Then in the middle of this: This happens: The trade was tempered by news on Wednesday that Jordan turned down a 10-year, $60 million deal with the Penguins.  He had one year […]

Tiger Blood And Adonis DNA.

Best. Sunday. Ever. All my boys played and did well today! The Caps are ‘Winning’ and not like Charlie Sheen. They gave the smack down to Derp face and Charlie’s true other brother Kaner Sunday to make it eight straight! But not without some cardiac arrest allowing Derpy to score with like 40 seconds left to send the damn thing […]

Punching Penguins, Manwhiches & Barbie In A Box

I’m calling this Sunday’s showdown of Penguins vs Capitals NBC’s Fistfest-o-Rama 2011. Because with the punchfest the Penguins are on, I suspect it will continue well into Sunday. And I for one, can’t wait! I am even hoping that Mike Milbury will drop Piere Macguire during the first intermission so we won’t have to listen […]

Goalies Gone Wild!

The Penguins are on a holy terror and they are HANGRY! Have they been drinking their Ensure? Or are they just amped up for their game against the Caps this coming Sunday because bejesus! This wasn’t a Mike Green-style slap fight. While Cookie took a dive after a tap from DiPietro, Johnston called DiPietro out and then […]

And Now For The CBC-ASG Version

Ok, so Pants and Chuck watched the Versus Broadcast and I watched the CBC broadcast because I don’t get Versus, both literally and philosophically. Below is the Sports Centre highlight of the Mad Skills wrap up if you want to watch. So here are my highlights and lowlights of the ASG weekend in no particular order: […]

Did I Just Dream This Into Being?

I am watching the All-Star Mad Skills competition and look up and lo-and-behold – THIS. Did I just fall in to an alternative reality? Did the universe just shift like in the original Star Trek and they go through a worm hole and Capt. Kirk finds out that the Blue Chick is super hot and Spock is really […]
