Getting Through Days

I seem to have failed, through all the posts and games and screaming fits, to truly appreciate one aspect of hockey’s influence on my life: stress relief.  Sure I get worked up about the games – rip a pillow, maybe throw a shoe – but it vents all my work frustration at the same time. […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Stanley Cup Beard of the Year finalists emerge

In case you missed it yesterday, check out our post from Puck Daddy! In this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the fates select which beards will have a chance to realize their true potential. Five teams remain. Five beards (OK, six) have emerged as top contenders for Beard of the Year. None of these teams made it […]

(un)Leashed Fury

Remember when Harry Potter got so angry at Dudley that he made the glass disappear and unleashed a snake into a room full of kids?  I wanted to disapparate the glass in the Verizon Center last night and let the fans go berserk.  I have never been so worked up at a game. As the […]

I Love Twitter – Episode 74

I actually said, “Baby Jesus in the manger.” when I saw this. For the record, Gator is fine. She saw this last night and didn’t even mention it.  In fact, no one mentioned it. I thought we were friends, you guys!!! And Karl too, of course.  These two are so freaking precious. Here’s Zac’s story […]

Birthday Boy: John Carlson

Happy Birthday, iCarly!  John is 22 today. (Shamelessly recycling this post for John’s 23 birthday.) iCarly was born outside of Boston (represent!) and grew up in New Jersey.  We can’t explain the math but this makes us love him even more.  In the 2010 World Junior Championship vs. Canada, John had two goals including the […]

Mikey Monday: Puppy Love

If someone finds my lifeless body later today, no need for an investigation. Cause of death: Mike Green with this dog. Why is this picture killing me so much?  Why do I love a shirt that’s kind of ugly and doesn’t even really match his pants?  Who has bacon behind the camera, because the dog […]

If We Had a Million Dollars…

Gator and I would be going to the 2011 Walk This Way Charity Fashion Show tomorrow night in DC.  And not just because it’s a great event. Come support Washington Redskins’ Brian Orakpo, Anthony Armstrong, DeAngelo Hall, Capitals’ John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Nick Backstrom, DC United’s Ben Olsen, Former Redskins Gary Clark, Former Jets John Bootyand others as […]

Mikey Monday: Game Over

Gator and I had the best time ever at the Caps Home Opener on Saturday. First of all, the warm-up skate.  Mike Green, no helmet, cruising around like the Fresh Prince in Summertime – “Two miles an hour so everybody sees you.”  Yes, he’s fresh from the barber shop and basketball courts in the summer […]

Mikey Monday: Share the Love

The Capitals Convention was Saturday – Gator and I are now we’re double-extra-super excited for hockey season.  Oh, and this. No big deal. The day started with Gator and Slapshot fist-pumping around 11 AM (it’s never too early).  As you can see we are already holding beers. Liz got to see a real live Red […]

Fore! (No, they're a ten.)

Mikey hosted a charity golf tournament yesterday, benefiting KidSport Alberta.  Awww. In attendance were iCarly, Karl Alzner, Zach Boychuk, Cody Franson and Jordan Eberle.  And Nicky of course.  He was rocking a shorter haircut.  I may have enjoyed this photo for five whole minutes before noticing his hair. No word on who won the tournament […]

It's all the same…

WUYS BFF Lisa sent us this video that John Erskine posted to Twitter.  Looks like it went up 11 hours ago, which would be 11 PM last night.  Nice to see the Caps aren’t taking their sweep too hard.  Wordpress doesn’t support TwitVideos, but you can watch it here. Check out that tattoo.  I’m not […]

It's Movember … and Props to the Washington Caps!

In case you haven’t heard, the NHL is getting behind ‘Movember’, a movement established to create additional awareness for men’s health – especially prostate cancer.  Their tagline is quite catchy : “Grow that Mo and SAVE A BRO!” So when you see your favorite player a little more hairy then usual, now you know why!
