Foxy Friday – Kris Letang

How have we never not done him? Well, I mean a Foxy Friday at least? Cause I’ve .. well. Anywho. Hot mess of hockey hair goo-goo-goodness is EVERYTHING a Foxy Friday should be and more. If a picture speaks a 1000 words then it’s a wonder the internet hasn’t exploded when a picture of this man is […]

Starry-Eyed

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 […]

When they show a hockey player…DRINK!

All-Star Weekend is our 2nd favorite time of the year here at WUYS (behind the awkberg assemblage that is the NHL Awards) and since Pants is off on her honeymoon getting all tan, hanging with monkeys, drinking umbrella drinks and being all in lurve, it’s going to be really lonely around here this weekend. So to […]

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 […]

And the winner is…

I missed 24/7 last night because I fell asleep re-watching Fright Night with Colin Farrell.  I mean he’s in the movie, he wasn’t with me.  And the movie’s great.  But I will have to catch up on the Rangers/Flyers this weekend, and from the sound of your Tweets there is plenty worth watching! Another thing […]

Intern Birthday Party!

Happy Birthday, Intern Jeff Skinner!  Instead of having you write your own birthday post, we wanted to make sure you feel completely appreciated by the girls of WUYS.  You are the best (um, only) intern we’ve ever had and while we don’t have to pay you, we can take a moment to remember the highlights […]

My Vote For Next Year's All Star National Anthem Artist!

[brightcove vid=557985342001&exp3=594258040001&surl=http://c.brightcove.com/services&pubid=1815805388&pk=AQ~~,AAAAAGw6_cw~,orja1xhYdu3rs6LhvI2eES_NASP2XRmD&w=416&h=312] OK, I will confess to being a bit of a Classical Music nerd having sat through Wagner’s Ring Cycle - and no, that is not a horror movie trilogy. I was watching Dancing with the Stars so I could watch Maks drop Kristie Alley again like a shot putter over loaded at the Olympics! But instead, […]

Love At First Fight

After the All Star game if you google Ovechkin and Letang, all sorts of yummy things start to come up. But I think this is where it all began. Ovi likes it rough and I am beginning to think so does Mr. LeBang! They can’t seem to keep their gloves off each other. Can’t wait […]

And Now For The CBC-ASG Version

Ok, so Pants and Chuck watched the Versus Broadcast and I watched the CBC broadcast because I don’t get Versus, both literally and philosophically. Below is the Sports Centre highlight of the Mad Skills wrap up if you want to watch. So here are my highlights and lowlights of the ASG weekend in no particular order: […]

ASG Weekend #2: Skills Competition

So here are the results… Faster Skater – Michael Grabner (14.238 seconds) Breakaway – Alexander Ovechkin (38.5% of the fan votes). Accuracy – Daniel Sedin (4 for 4 in 7.3 seconds) Skills Challenge Relay – […]
