Long Hot Summer

Five minute post! I’m on computer-free vacaaaaaaaaaation for a week, but I could not leave without giving you this. There’s a game I like to play with Lindsay and Alison. I call it: Inner/Outer monologue or Tomorrow’s Blog Post? In today’s episode: my reaction to watching this video. FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, WEAR A TIGHTER SHIRT, […]

BHC2014: Just Dance

Every summer, the Blackhawks rub our faces in their excellence and team spirit by hosting yet another Blackhawks Convention.  Sometimes they bring the Cup for extra envy-inducing purposes, but not even the Hawks can win that thing every year.  So how do they make sure everyone gets their money’s worth? Dancing. It’s safe to say the […]

Tyler Tuesday: And So It Begins…

The Dallas Stars’ season is over but weep not, interweb friends! You know what that means? More of this! And this! And hopefully much MUCH more of this! #HatTip to Tyler and Co. for even making the playoffs and for holding their own against the Ducks. I’m sure that Seguin would rather still be playing hockey, […]

Foxy Friday: Roman Josi

Happy New Year!  Happy Foxy Friday! It’s our First Foxy Friday of the Year and we’re starting it off right. It all actually started in 2013 when there I was,  just minding my own business, drinking a glass of delicious scotch, talking on the twitter, when WUYS reader @sarahconnors drops this Foxy Friday bomb on […]

Lethal Weapon

(Note: Lethan Weapon is one of the best bromance movies of all time. Bust out the VHS and watch it.) If you can’t hold a puppy or a baby, the next best prop for maximum cuteness is Evgeni Malkin.  I swear, if I baked a cake and that cake took a shelter dog for a walk […]

Be Happy, Dammit.

I hate everything lately, but Jonathan Toews is making a real effort to turn the blog around.  First he hugs a puppy, then he and Kaner do one of the best interviews I’ve ever read: Kane and Toews Face Off – ESPN Magazine What is this? Is this dancing? The story about Kane waking Toews […]

Foxy Friday: Matt Bartkowski

Sometimes being a Foxy Friday isn’t about being the #1 star or scoring all the goals.  Sometimes it is about being funny and charming and adorable. And totally crush-worthy. This week’s honoree has got it in spades. So let’s look at the reasons why Barty gets this week’s honor (besides his obvious awesomeness) In the […]

Weekend Update

We have referred to ourselves as JamesNeal.com in the past, and I think we’ve done a pretty good job cheerleading our favorite gingerbeard. Now there is actually a JamesNeal18.com and honestly, it rhymes.  The whole glorious homepage is a Real Deal rhyme scheme.  I cannot compete with that. What James’ new official site does not […]

Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund

This week, we’re featuring yet ANOTHER Swede.  Hey, not our fault that this lovely nation keeps producing the foxiest of men folk. Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund The boring stuff – Born 1988 (aged 25).  6’3″, 220 lb C/LW drafted 25th overall by the Blues in 2006.  In his very young NHL career, he has a […]

Only When We Wake Up…

Did that really just happen?  I keep waiting to wake up and find that it was all just some horrible nightmare.  I’m Leo Dicaprio, spinning that totem, waiting for it to keep spinning to let me know that this is some cruel inception. But unfortunately it is not. Game 6 really did happen. The Bruins […]

Bring the Action

If this little girl could read, I’d swear she was reading our Tweets from last night:   It was a big game for #TeamEbs and the reunited Kid Line in St. Louis!  Jordan had two beautiful goals.  He almost scored his first NHL hat trick on a breakaway, but he and Taylor heard  @amandalitty was […]

Birthday Boy: Patrick Kane

Patrick Kane likes to party.  In other news, Tyler Seguin is hot.  When two things so obvious to the world collide, it can only end in Bromaggedon. First, it was just casual hanging out.  Maybe a Tuesday night happy hour, catch a movie in English with both French and German subtitles that cover half the […]

Birthday Boy: Taylor Hall

America, land of democracy.  To prove that every vote counts, not just the people running the place: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TAYLOR HALL. (That sound you hear is Amanda and Jess crashing to the floor.) Since Taylor’s living and playing in the US, his 21st birthday is a big deal.   We hope he makes good decisions, […]

Eskimo Kisses

With a NHL lockout looming, we have a feeling that we’re going to be watching a lot more college hockey this season. I’ve been a BU season ticket holder for years now, so I’ve always been a big fan of the college game.  There are so many great reasons to watch college hockey (especially BU), […]

Swedish Meatball

With summertime and real-life work responsibilities and vacations, things have been a little slow around the WUYS office lately. We’re running at like 50%, not able to post as much as we want and Intern Jeff Skinner is totally being a slacker.  He thinks he’s all hotshot with his new fancy contract. We don’t care, […]

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 […]

Mikey Monday: Photo Booth

Hmm, 500 unopened emails or Mikey Monday? I can’t think of anything that looks happier than this, except maybe getting to actually see all the photostrips clearly.  But this is pretty much the definition of joy.  And bromance. If they can’t play hockey, at least they have each other. (Side note: Mike’s girlfriend is a […]

Nicky. Twitter. YES.

To everyone who saw this last night and thought of us, thanks!  Nicky Backstrom joined Twitter and the DC-area power gird promptly failed as fangirls crashed the mainframe.  I think Nicky joined now because he has the best profile photo of any Washington Capital. Or it could be because I got my Backstrom shirt in the […]

New Coach, New Girlfriend, New Attitude?

So Ovi has a new coach, a new girlfriend so let’s hope that leads to a new attitude! Right? Well if the first game was any indication, I might jump ship – WHAT?! Just kiddding. That sound you just heard was Pants and Chuck simulatenously dropping over. I’m  so excited for the battle of the hotties […]

Mikey Monday: Not a Drill

The news on Mike is: 1) He’s not skating [link].  Boudreau hopeful Mike will be able to skate by the end of this week. 2) The Caps are kinda falling apart.  Semin’s demoted to 4th line and may be a healthy scratch vs. Phoenix tonight [link].  They’ve lost 6 of 7 games, giving up 27 […]
