The Island of Misfit Boys

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 […]

Summer’s Almost Gone

I cannot go away for one second!  It’s like Toy Story in here – I go outside and everything suddenly comes to life.  Where to begin? #TeamEbs took over the NHL Instagram account and used the opportunity to make fun of Molly Ringwald. Our favorite boy band also introduced an act at the Canadian Country […]

Late Night Alumni

Did I say yesterday that Game 4 would go to overtime?  I was really proud of my predicition until I remembered almost every Blackhawks playoff game goes to overtime.  And lately, Brent Seabrook’s been ending them.   Look at Seabs’ hair post-game.  Was there a full moon last night?  He’s about to chew through the […]

Foxy Friday: Brent Seabrook

By popular demand, this week’s Foxy Friday is Wednesday’s playoff hero: Brent Seabrook Brent Seabrook, bastion of blueline presence for the Chicago Blackhawks, had some unprecedented struggles at the start of the Hawks’ Western Conference semifinal vs. Detroit.  He was not the only one.  But when Seabs could hardly be there for himself, when he […]

Pass the Mistletoe

Christmas, I love you.  You are the perfect excuse for madcap hilarity from NHL teams featuring the only singing on Earth that is confirmed worse than mine (thanks Marian Hossa). Oh my God, it goes on forever!  This is the kind of stuff Gator and I come up with during intermissions at Caps games.  Get […]

A Few Sweet Dudes

You knew it was coming.  Captain Serious cannot be outdone in any category (especially his own category) – he was just saving the best for last.  Taking a (really too obvious but keep doing squats and we don’t care) page from 24/7, Blackhawks TV once again brings you the best hockey programming around.  Carter, Lindsay and […]

Hawks – Class of 2011

Welcome to the 2011-2012 Chicago Blackhawks season.  Also known as Patrick Kane’s 10th birthday party. Patrick is *really* excited because him mom got him a new Huffy bike and the double chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake that all the cool kids had last year.  Duncan is psyched because he stole that kid’s cake and […]

Blackhawks Weekend

This weekend’s breaking news: Jonathan Toews brought a girl to a baseball game.  Even the Chicago sports announcers were fangirling. In a related story, it wasn’t us. We’re not going to post photos of Jon’s date – let’s not be those girls.  Plus Intern Jeff Skinner reads this blog and we’re not sure he can […]
