The Most Wonderful Time

The holiday season is here!  We have stuffed our faces and basked in food coma.  We’ve broken out the ski socks and mittens.  I watched 5 straight episodes of Covert Affairs before bothering to check if I could fast forward the commercials.  Now that we’re back after American Thanksgiving, everyone is ready to work: Movember is […]

Foxy Friday: Instagram

Last week, it was glasses.  This week, we are continuing with our salute to inanimate foxiness by honoring one of our favorite apps, Instagram.   In case you’re not hip to the Instagram, it is an online photo/video-sharing & social networking services that lets users take photos, apply a digital filter, upload them, and share […]

Foxy Friday: Furry and Fabulous

We all know that hockey players are foxy.  I mean, why else would we devote an entire blog day to them? Also foxy – the same hockey players with puppies. Seriously. I double dog dare you to find anything foxier. (Don’t even try.  Because you won’t.) This week’s Foxy Friday is dedicated to those furry […]

NHL Awards: Who Should Win? Who Will Win?

Tonight’s the night. NHL Awards in Las Vegas! Bring on the attractive hockey players in impeccably fitted suits.  Bring on the awkward (and hilarious) red carpet interviews.   Bring on the D-list celebrities who can’t pronounce the winner’s name (Martin St. Lewis!). Here’s who we think is going to bring on the hardware… Hart (Lundqvist/Malkin/Stamkos) Should: Chuck […]

Kilroy Was Here

There is no accounting for taste in our household. Traitors abound. Mr. Cherrie is a hard-core Buffalo fan.  But when I went to consult my bookie, I mean my oracle- the great swami Osiris Jones, man about town and counselor at law, when he’s not picking NHL play-off games for cat treats, much to my horror this is what […]

Foxy Friday: Henrik Lundqvist

It’s official. We’ve done lost our minds. Commit us to the looney bin.  Get us some stylish straight jackets and lock us in that padded room with Justin Timberlake and his weird blond curly ‘fro. Why you ask? Well, first of all, three of the last six Foxy Friday have been New York Rangers.  Three! […]


When Mr. Pants and I boarded our flight in Houston on Saturday, I had NO idea there would be individual TVs on the plane.  Then I saw the All-Star Game Skills Competition was on.  I may have screamed.  One swipe of the AMEX later, I was sitting an inch from the screen with a huge […]

ASG Fantasy Draft

Tonight, we’ll find out who’ll be the Phil Kessel of the 2012 All Star game.  (Perhaps it’ll be Phil Kessel.  That would be amazing.) At 8pm tonight, fifty of the best hockey players in the world (38 NHL All-Stars and 12 top rookies) will be up for selection in the Player Fantasy Draft.  All-stars and […]

Richards' Rangers

The biggest question of the 2011 Free Agent market has been answered. And the winner is… NYR Fan Steph.  The Rangers have given Brad Richards a 9 year deal worth $58.5 million.  [] Other teams that may have asked Brad to dance were Toronto, Calgary, LA, Tampa Bay and Philly.  How the Flyers have any […]

Foxy Friday: Jon Hamm

This place is falling apart!  Friday’s almost over and we’re asleep at our keyboard.  Luckily, we had one saved.  Did we mention that Jon Hamm presented at the NHL Awards?  Chuck lurves him (a Boston accent in The Town, that’s all she needs). Perhaps Jon’s growing a beard until his team (St. Louis) gets back […]

Style 101

I like to imagine how this man-date came about: King Henrik and his Jedi padawan, Biebs.  KH is teaching JB all the ways to be your coolest, smoothest self in NY while maintaining that foreign mystique. – Skype video call to determine exact shade of black to wear. – Meet early for hairstyling. – Courtside […]

Because Freezing the Water Just Doesn't Make Sense

That is the subject line of an email I received this morning.  Intrigued, I clicked on the link.  This is what I found. Metro West Underwater Hockey Underwater hockey is a very fast-moving game that provides great exercise and quickly builds swimming capability. It is played on the bottom of a swimming pool and players […]

NHL Tuesday Night in NYC

While Dawn Cherrie and I were on a double date last night with Mike Green and Ovie, the rest of the NHL’s top 20 stars partied with Graydon Carter and the fancypants folks at Vanity Fair.  Well, fancy-ish.  Guests included “actor” Tom Cavanaugh and Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek.  It kills me that we’re not […]
