Before Today

Before anything major can happen today (we should have about 10 minutes, or unit Jason Spezza is official), let’s talk about what has already happened to our lives. I  was out Friday night/most of Saturday with no phone.  I apologize to those who texted and Tweeted , only to assume I’d retreated with a gallon of ice […]

Start Stressing

The Olympics really disrupted my sense of hockey-time, and I suddenly find important things are right around the corner: The Penguins are in DC on Monday. The trade deadline is tomorrow at 3 PM Eastern. There are less than six weeks left in the regular season. Luckily I’m good at To Do Lists.  They calm […]

America. Heck Yeah.

Or something like that. Allow me to share my unpopular American opinion: I am pro-Canada when it comes to Olympic men’s hockey.  I don’t care if the NSA turns their cell phone recorders on me, but my heart goes with my favorite players on their biggest stage.  We Americans win a lot in every Olympics. […]

Foxy Friday: Glasses

It started with this: from Geno’s Instagram Well no, our obsession with boys in glasses began long ago.  Maybe it was when Chuck and I got our own glasses, or when we realized that we a) are nerds and b) like nerds.  Glasses may be more cool than Coke bottle these days, but the allure […]

This Isn't Where I Parked My Car

Ryan Kesler in ESPN Magazine’s annual “The Body” issue. You know the part in National Treasure when they light the little pool of oil and it spreads 10,000 feet of fire and illuminates a gazillion dollars in gold and stuff?  That’s what happened to the internet when this picture was posted.  You’re gonna have to […]

Is it October yet?!

In another edition of players we can only like until the season starts… Ryan Kesler will appear nude in ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue. More than 20 athletes will do the soap opera strategically-cover-your-business to pose for the annual issue – here’s the list [link]. Kes wanted to get a jump on the competition, so […]

Mikey Monday: High Five!

ONLY 5 MONDAYS until our first hockey game of the season!!   Gator, Mr. Pants and I bought tickets for the Blue Jackets @ Caps on Monday, Sept 26.  Tickets were $10.  DISCOUNT MONDAY! We will get bananas excited over a half-empty pre-season game.  Deprivation and too much sugar will do that.  We’ll be playoff-style freaking […]

Foxy Friday: Kevin Bieksa

@GreenFan52 (sounds like my kinda person!) suggested KB3 for this week’s Foxy Friday honor.  What do you think? He hits (104 in 66 games this season).  On occasion he fights (3 this year… wait, he fought Patrick Marleau?!).  Mostly he’s just Juice and for every second you hate him, you can’t help but love him […]

Ever Done This?

Mike Duco formerly of the Florida Panthers got traded to Vancouver. If you were him – you’d think JACK POT – right? Going from a basement dwelling team – well – before they spent a boat load of cash and made some mad trades – to an almost Stanley Cup winning team. Not a bad […]

The NHL Awards Nearly Kill Us

I alternate between muting and leaving the room when I’m uncomfortable with what’s on TV.  So I watched the NHL Awards in fits and starts and really tried to only listen when a player was talking. The show was fairly agonizing, featuring some of the flattest jokes possible.  I generally think Jay Mohr’s pretty funny […]

First Rule Of Bite Club – Werewolf Style.

Everyone knows the first rule of Bite Club. You don’t talk about Bite Club. Patrice Bergeron said he wasn’t going to talk about it and then proceeded to talk about. Big no-no. Tyler Durden would be really disappointed, even if you did it in French, although it may sound way more sexy. And then you get taunted […]

The Day Has Come

It’s time for the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.  At the end, I will no longer be able say “Defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks” and I’ll be so sad.  But maybe Chuck will get to say that about the Bruins!!  Is everyone ready? Tyler Seguin’s all: While RK17 is like: And you know those cute […]

I Am The Egg-Man & Hockey Flu

Since Vancouver won, I’ll fess up to being the chick flashing Ben Eager just for shits and giggles – IN MY DREAMS. I don’t have a body like that. Maybe like, 15 years ago. My twins have gone a little south, let’s say. But that’s between Victoria and me and she’s doesn’t tell! GIFSoup But […]

17 Years Ago Tonight… Rinse and Repeat.

Bieksa the Berserker was the only one who knew where the biscuit was on the ice … with a freaky deaky goal in double OT and down go the Sharks. It’s 17 years to the day that Vancouver claims the Western Conference title in a double OT as well and will face either Boston or Tampa Bay for […]

Down, But Not Out

Where have you been all my life season?!  The Blackhawks blew the doors off the Madhouse last night with a 7-2 win over Vancouver to keep from being swept, devastated and sent to the back nine with nothing but their ’10 Cup rings for company. Dave Bolland had 1G + 2A.  Patrick Sharp had 2G, […]

Foxy Friday: Ryan Kesler

I haven’t done a Foxy Friday is forever.  The regular season is thisclose to being over and it’s about time we talked Ryan Kesler.  Kesler is getting a lot of support for NHL MVP this season (not the least of which is from former Foxy Friday @buccigross). He scored a hat trick last night to […]
