Make It Happen

Chuck had a dream last night that Jordan Eberle was her boyfriend.  Normally I would say that my work here is done, but Ebs and Co. will not be satisfied until they 1) lead the AHL and 2) convert you all.

There’s still one holdout, she’s over there.

The OKC Barons have won their last five games.  They’ve outscored their opponents 24 to 11.  Two of those games were against the Charlotte Checkers, who now lead the South Division by just two points.  The Barons are now second, and just four points off the AHL Western Conference Lead.

Lindsay texted me a shot of every page of this feature. She’s a hero.

In those five games:  Ebs has 5 goals, 5 assists and 5 points for Gryffindor since this mustache is really a thing.

RNH has 3 goals and 3 assists but you still have to look on an angle to see anything in the Movember department:

Hallsy has 1 goal and a whopping 10 assists.  It has not helped his mustache.

Although it is reflected a little in the glow of his recent award:

Barons defenseman Justin Schultz has 2 goals, 5 assists and some pretty decent facial hair going.

Schultz  leads the Barons in overall points and even has a budding bromance with his roomate, RNH.  We are a little jealous!  They are thoughtful and sensitive and went to see Life of Pi together.  Pack him up when you head back to Edmonton, boys.

While Intern Jeff Skinner is not playing in Charlotte, he does not appreciate us rooting for their demise.  He came pretty close to swaying us with:

Shut up, this is awesome!

Not to be outdone, the Barons have a Star Wars Night (April 6) AND they have 80’s night on December 14.  In which none of these guys can play because they were born after 1990.  That’s how it works, right?  I’ll wear my slouch socks and you wear your side ponytail.

 Uhh… .sorry.  What was I saying?

Oh yeah.  You can watch the Barons, or any other AHL game, live online at AHL TV.  Single games are $6.99 but honestly, at this point we should probably buy the whole season.

  1. Yes. I had a dream Jordan Eberle was my boyfriend.

    He was a great boyfriend.

    We were at the beach.

    We frolicked in the waves.

    He gave good hugs.

    We were happy.

    • Don’t worry Chuck. This is a safe space. There is no judgement here. This is what the lockout does to your unconscious.

      • This is what Pants does to my unconscious.
        Also Amanda with her tumblr finds.

        It’s not fair. I’m in a very fragile state with the lockout and they prey upon me like feral cats on a little teeny mouse.

        My resolve can only crumble.

  2. Between those dreamy eyes and that damn gap-toothed smile, I think he’s just impossible to resist.

  3. $6.99?!?!?

    I know it’s the minor leagues, but I paid $35 when OKC came to play the Abbotsford Heat. AND I had to sit in traffic for 2 hours to get there.

    Even the junior games are $27. I’m going to another Vancouver Giants game on Saturday. I’ll let you know if anything awesome happens. It’s Trevor Linden day. I know he was a worthy honouree, of my suggestion, but he is EVERYWHERE AT ALL TIMES in Vancouver. I’m really getting sick of his face.

  4. I don’t get it. That gif of RNH is unusually hot. I’m going to blame the camera angle and that hot, manly watch.

    Jess and I agreed that Hallsy’s mo makes him look a little like an old time-y actor. I tweeted him that, but no bite. It’s a matter of time until he responds to my harassment– I mean, charm. :]
