Party Rock

What better way to celebrate Canada Day than with the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks?  Since we cannot keep up with these kids, here are ten great photos from the festivities of the last week. Whatever you expected from a Patrick Kane party, you were underestimating. SWEDES, you have passed us!! (photo by @jstefanc) Police barricades […]

Blackhawks Win the Cup

So ends the 2013 season.  One lockout.  Zero Winter Classics, 24/7 episodes, All-Star Games or NHL Awards ceremonies.  One Stanley Cup. credit: sportsmockery I’m sure Chuck will do a post about the Bruins when she’s ready.  For now we send her and our other Bruins fan friends love.  We’ve all had teams lose before, but […]

Put Me In, Coach!

Just when there’s no time for any blogging today, the Hawks put Viktor Stalberg back into the lineup.  And I find time to send you this: Here’s the story from  The Hawks were the Hawks in Game 1, winning 4-1 over Detroit.  Then a Freaky Friday (though it was Saturday) body-switching catastrophe happened and […]

WUYS Convention 2014

The NHL wants to make up for the lockout, draw casual fans back into hockey and perhaps attract some new ones in a less turbulent year, because we’re still really mad at them.  Right? Not now, girls.  Er, we may be feeling warmer and fuzzier and playoff-ier… Seriously!  Hold it together. Then someone says: from […]


When it comes to the Blackhawks, it’s not easy to be the prettiest anything. You’re well-dressed… till Patrick Sharp walks by.  Feeling reliably heroic… then you see Jonathan Toews.  Rugged?  Try Viktor Stalberg.  Good hair day? Ruined by Brent Seabrook.  You can’t even walk a dog without being upstaged by Duncan Keith and forget being […]

Doomsday Prepping

Just in case tomorrow really is the end of the world, it’s been fun.  The lockout can’t ruin hockey for me.  I decide what I love about it, like the Penguins and Capitals at the same time.  Throw in a Flyer while you’re at it.  Expansion teams, underage boyfriends, never remembering if the Blackhawks are […]

From Russia, With Love

An interview in English for a Russian TV station that’s dubbed in French? Can’t hear over the sound of Viktor Stalberg’s perfection anyway.   Go ahead and watch it in full screen glory.  The light from the camera gets a little warm toward the middle, I think.  This director should tell Viktor he can take […]

Global Warming: Sweden

Meanwhile in Russia, guess who remains perfect and is scoring a lot of points? Of course it’s Piglet.  He looks pretty fond of Ms. Pink Recorder-And-Mani combo too.  Or maybe he’s just happy with himself for having 5 goals and 5 assists in his last 4 games for Dynamo Moscow. This, this, a thousand times […]

Sweden is Trying to Kill Us

If I had a TARDIS, where would I go right now? If our office has security cameras, it would be worth it to get the footage of my reaction to this picture.  It resembled being electrocuted. Somewhere, Mike Green is depressed.  He hates it when Nicky goes out with better looking guys. Deb (@DLF1021), I […]

Foxy Friday: Stalberg & Shaw

ACK! Chuck and I have been so busy at our real jobs that we’re late in posting some of the very best stuff I’ve ever seen from a hockey summer.  Let’s start with the most important thing. I posted a photo of this, but that is not even close to the proper pedestal on which […]

Sweet Home, Chicago

We will have some firsthand (sadly not my hands) reports from the Blackhawks Convention going on right now in Chicago. Unless this photo causes the end of the interwebs. Oh yeah. It was nice knowing you.

Team Sweden

Paulina Gretzky did male hockey fans a favor by getting frisky all over Instagram this week.  If you heard DC’s Elliot in the Morning today, it was a gem.  But it’s a little unfair, don’t you think?  They get bikinis and we get beards? Ladies, don’t worry.  Sweden never lets us down. No really, they […]

This is Your Captain Speaking…

If I were ever on a sinking ship, I’d want to look across the deck and see Jonathan Toews in charge of the lifeboats because you know everyone is getting to safety in a single file line holding their toothbrush and enough money to call home. I do go on about Tazer, particularly the game […]

Well, s&*%.

Were you saying something?  Like Viktor Stalberg hurt his shoulder last night, went to the locker room, then came back?  That he’s not on the ice at practice this morning?  Sorry, I no longer listen to injury reports.  And I can’t hear you over the… Larger version of this photo, probably NSFW (unless you work […]

You jump, I jump. Right?

The Detroit Red Wings set the NHL consecutive home game win record last night with 21 straight, edging out two teams (1929-30 Bruins and1975-76 Fyers) to claim the crown.  Detroit also holds the record for consecutive road wins (12) [link].  Well la dee freakin’ dah. The Wings have only 3 home losses this season, the […]

Hey, Over Here!

Thank Heaven for something to save me from last night’s Penguins game.  In a blatant attempt to distract, Captain Frankentoews challenged himself to see how many stitched cuts one can have on the left side of the face. [video]  He got a 2-for-1 last night with a puck to the helmet that cut his forehead: But […]

Our Kind of Christmas Elf

How was everyone’s Christmas?  We couldn’t post this last week or it would have spoiled the surprised that we bought Jonathan Toews a lifetime supply of those red shirts for Christmas. Now that presents are open and you’re either home with your crazy family or at work with nothing to do, enjoy Joey the Junior […]

Foxy Friday: Viktor Stålberg

Chuck here… You know what time it is… Foxy Swedish Hockey Player Time. Two weeks in a row with the Swedish guys.  Totally un-intentional but hey, we work with what we got. There are oh so many reasons why #25 deserves this honor (the use of the letter Å definitely being one of them) but here are […]
