Mikey Monday: We’re Back

Oh Monday.  It’s been a while since I was so excited to see your face. And by your face, I mean Mike Green’s. The Capitals Convention was this weekend, so Mike’s friends are along to make your Monday better.  I had a hot date with Deb (@DLF1021) and Pam (@sunnyinNJ) who packed their high-powered cameras. […]

Step Into the Light

Sneaker Ball, the annual charity event that encourages sports to enhance the lives of children, was held last night in DC.  Guess who won an award? The JB (James Brown) Impact Award goes to an athlete who “has demonstrated outstanding involvement in the community and has used sport to positively impact the area….  Through actions […]

Mikey Monday: Doing It Right

Let’s start our first Mikey Monday in a while by hoping everyone in Mike’s hometown of Calgary is safe and well.  We’ve seen a lot of photos this weekend, like the Saddledome underwater, and we’re thinking of you guys. Mike is still in DC, Tweeting about car shows and country concerts (ah, summer).  He recently […]

Just Give Me a Reason

As you many remember, I fought the Caps love for a long time before finally caving in.  In just three years as a Capitals’ fan, our relationship has gotten very serious (obsessed, codependent – semantics). As such, I’ve allowed myself until Noon today to wallow in last night’s Capitals. With actual shock I admit that […]

Mikey Monday: Game Seven

It’s Game 7 time.  Heart in mouth, prayer in mind, lucky clothes on body time.  Every superstition, every trick, every measure of defiance will be in use tonight like it’s the Battle for Hogwarts all over again. Whether you’re watching Rangers/Caps or Leafs/Bruins, I defy you to make it through the post with your blood […]

Mikey Monday: ASDFGHJKL!!

Caps/Rangers Game 3 was incredible.  The kind of game that makes new hockey fans.  The kind of game that nearly kills the rest of us.   Is there anything to say or think or even feel that that isn’t breathlessly captured in these photos by clydeorama from Jasper’s Rink? Anything else you want to hug? […]

Mikey Monday: Don’t

Don’t tell me the season is almost over.  Don’t tell me there are 3 games left, you have a 3 point lead and I have to spend the next week trying not to throw up over whether or not you can hold onto a playoff spot. And don’t tell me this just happens when you […]

Pants’ TV Debut

We’ve been razzing a lot of “part-time models” around here lately.  Maybe I could be a Part Time Reporter? For my real job, I do entertainment PR and was lucky enough to work with Joel Ward and the Caps on a special screening of the new movie 42.  Joel wears number 42 in honor of […]

Capital Serious

Things I love, in order: 1) Mike Green scoring goals. .gif by nhl-highlights.tumblr.com 2) Mike Green’s hair like this. Watch it: Post-Game 4/11 video 3) Mike Green taking himself SO SERIOUSLY. Read it: Russian Machine Never Breaks Of course it’s stupid to say your bad long hair affected your play, Mike!  It’s also dumb to say […]

The 20/20 Experience

There was a moment in last night’s Caps’ game when Mike Green scored and I yelled, “I love you, you crazy looking hipster!” Now I see this and it’s all OneRepublic in here, “Is it too late to apologiiiiiiiiiize?” Deb (@DLF1021), what would I do without you sending me things? Mike is featured in this […]

Mike Monday: GAME TIED

This weekend, the artist formerly known as GAME OVER changed his name to GAME TIED.  And that’s okay with us. How I looked Saturday night, only with a scream of joy. On Saturday, after hitting the post earlier in the game, Mike banked one in behind Jhonas Enroth to tie the game with 42 seconds […]

Mikey Monday: Hashtag

Last night, Mike and the Caps really wanted you to tag your Tweets. I don’t think “I miss hedgehog, fidgety, Jersey Shore-style Mike Green but at least this guy has a manicure. *P  #CapsNYR” is what they were after. They could have gone with #CutYourHair or #DontYouMissWhenIWasHot or… I’ll stop.  Mike did have a goal […]

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 […]

Mikey Monday: Still Here

I have used every Mike Green photo on Google/Tumblr and I’m feeling really pouty.  So I went to Bing to hunt for a new photo so I could post something – anything! – here for Mikey Monday, like a candle kept burning in the window of a house waiting for someone to come home. See? […]

Mikey Monday: Try, Try, Try

Mike’s hurt again.  Or he was never really better. He missed three games in late February after aggravating last season’s groin injury, then came back for two matches.  All was not well – he did not practice Friday or make the weekend trip to Winnipeg for the Caps’ 3-0 win on Saturday. Perhaps afraid this look would […]

It’s All Too Much

During last night’s Capitals vs. Penguins game, the role of the Caps was played by Honey Boo Boo: Or maybe she was playing me, and those pumpkins are my fumbled, oddly-shaped emotions. The Capitals can juggle two things.  Or two periods of hockey.  It’s the third thing, usually the middle period, that falls apart and […]

Mikey Monday: Game Day

Penguins vs. Capitals should be a rough day for me, what with my love of both teams.  Yet it never is. Of course Mike Green had a goal ysterday – a lovely, wide open one-timer past former Caps goalie Tomas Vokoun to tie the game against my Penguins.  Just flexing his muscles when my eye […]

Damn It, Danny.

Time for my daily existential Danny Briere-related crisis. The Caps are so frustratingly bad right now that I swore I would not go tonight’s game.  Despite taking 8 penalties in the first 34 minutes of last night’s match vs. Toronto, they managed to drag a one goal lead into the third period… and still blew […]

All Aboard the StruggleBus

One might have assumed my lockout-induced honeymoon period would last longer than four days. WRONG. Greetings from the StruggleBus.  Last night’s Capitals home opener looked a lot like their season opener in Tampa Bay.  As in: I reminded myself that the upside to losing is ticket prices stay low. The Caps are not, by any […]

Mikey Monday: Whip My Hair

The bad news is the Caps lost their season opener vs. Tampa Bay. The worse news is they lost 6-3 and got dominated by some old(er) guys (Brewer, Lecavalier, St. Louis) and a kid fresh off the AHL bus (Conacher). But the worst news is this: Mike Green used to style his hair with a […]
