Totes Sad Pandas

This is just sad. Another hockey player gone way too soon. Rick Rypien was found dead on Monday by a family member. No official word yet about the cause and quite frankly it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that yet another young hockey player is gone. He took an extended leave of absence from […]

Throw Away the Key

So Sean Avery is a moron.  In other news, water is wet. Avery was arrested early this morning for shoving a Hollywood, CA police office who was responding to a noise complaint about a loud party at Avery’s house [link, and yes I picked the TMZ one on purpose].  He must have had The Hangover […]

What If ..

After Tampa Bay beat Boston in Tampa Bay for Game 6, Nathan Horton purposely picked up a water bottle and sprayed a Tampa Bay fan with a water bottle and then threw it at the fan as he left the ice for the locker room. Yes, the fan was yelling something at him but so were […]

Surely you can't be serious! I am serious… and don't call me Shirley.

This about sums up how I’m feeling about last night’s Bruins loss in Game 6… Chuck does NOT love. Not even one little bit.

Guy Boucher and the Apprentices.

Fast forward to 6 minutes and 28 seconds to get the actual point when the brooms multiply if you’re not familiar with this classic. Or watch the whole damn thing. It actually includes lightning which is quite fitting. And then the Capitals Meet Tampa Bay: And then the saddest death: In memoriam – the Washington Capitals […]

Have You Seen…

The Tampa Bay bus?  Yeah, it went this way.

Wha' Happened?

It’s good to be Tampa Bay! Evidently this 1-3-1 defense is flummoxing everyone and I don’t really understand why the Penguins or the Caps are having a problem with it NOW. Hasn’t Tampa had it ALL SEASON? Is it a surprise NOW? Do they need a special decoder ring because I’m pretty sure Pierre Maguire […]

Caps vs. Bolts – Game 1

In which I totally miss my chance to meet Steven Stamkos. Friday morning I hatch a master plan.  Gator is going to marry Steven Stamkos, move back to Florida and live near the Yuengling brewery in TB.  WUYS Remote HQ.  She takes one look at his presh face and agrees. “Gator, I am not kidding!” […]

Look On The Bright Side.

If there is one. Last year, Kris Letang took the opportunity to take a long vacation and recharge his batteries. And given the ice time he had this year and the current situation with standing, he deserves one. And what does Kris Letang do on long vacations? He goes to hot, tropical locations. Get where I’m going […]

Shark Attack!

After last night’s devastation I am at a loss – so are the Kings – 3 to be precise. The Kings have to travel back to the shark tank and try to win one or go home. Dany Heatly seems to be up to some old tricks tripping Martinez which could have caused a serious injury and Jumbo […]


How did this happen? I don’t know. One minute it was 4-0 LA Kings and the next it was 5-3 and then 5-5. Drew Doughty – you broke my heart last night because you DIDN’T SHOW UP! Handing San Jose a franchise record of 5 goals in one period and one of only 4 NHL teams […]

Does This Mean The Russian Machine Breaks?

Ovi to ‘rest’ so he is sitting out against Philly? wha…? He’s had an ‘ailment’ for the last couple of months and they figure now is a good time for him to heal and be ready for the play offs? OK. SRSLY? Every one who reads this blog knows I love Ovi. And I wouldn’t […]

I Missed Mike Green

At the Caps game last night, we sat 10 or so rows back along the zamboni entrance.  During the first intermission, guess who did a little interview right below our seats?  Mike Green.  Srsly. The best part of this story: I missed the whole thing! I was in the bathroom. Mr. Pants took this video – […]

I'm Mad as Hell and I'm Not Going to Take This ANYMORE!

If this guy’s coaching career doesn’t pan out, perhaps he has a future as a Chippendale dancer… So what caused this bare-naked outburst? Turns out that the guy (assistant coach Greg Pankewicz from the Colorado Eagles) was madder than a wasp because one of the linesmen tackled his player after a fight. Granted the player […]

Exit to the Dark Side?

Dawn and I are going to our first Caps game tonight in San Jose. Dawn will be wearing the aforementioned Ovechtrick head-to-toe ensemble.  And she’s bringing me Caps gear.  I might even wear it. At the very least I have consented to a red & white hoodie (from BU, gotta keep some of my dignity).  […]

What's Really Going On Inside Mike Green's Ear

Some how they got inside and now they won’t leave. Talk about uninvited guests! BB is really mad! Ovi tried shouting BOOM but that only excited Animal more and he started banging on the cochlea which made Mike bitch slap Ovi. Nikky is whispering sweet nothings to no avail. Desperate, now Varly is walking back […]


It’s no longer a question.  This is just crazy. Flames’ Alex Tanguay is out indefinitely with a concussion.  No individual hit has been identified as the culprit, but Tanguay last played in the Flames win over Chicago on Monday night.  He missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday before the announcement was made. I am the world’s […]

And Now For Something Completely Different.

Who says the NHL is bias? Letting the Punching Pens off when J. Staal uses another player for a nail to hang his velvet Elvis? nah … If that were Ovi, he’d be on early vacation doing the turkey dance in his mankini! Do I need to post another picture of Ovi with out his […]

NBC Executives Ride Short Buses To Work

Watching the AWESOME Winter Classic and Fabulous Washington Capital’s 3-1 Win over the Pens holding whining Slew-Foot Sid pointless MADE MY NEW YEAR! Welcome 2011! But the bizarre camera angles and annoying comentary from NBC made me wish my fellow WUYS tweeters had access to the CBC feed. Because Mr. Cherrie and I would have rather watched our lovely Canadian’s […]

What Else is There To Say …

My Caps are in a 6 game losing streak which hasn’t EVER happen under Coach Boudreau. Ovi even had to resort to fighting tonight to try to get something started. Fidget is nowhere to be found. My fantasy texting keeps telling me that I am scoreless even after I picked Ovi a few games ago and he scored. How […]
