Foxy Friday: Liam O’Brien

Some Friday posts are hard work: weeding through photos, combing through Tumblrs and Twitters for pictures that demonstrate exactly what we’re trying to say about the week’s honoree.  Not today, friends.  Today was easy. Foxy Friday: Liam O’Brien Type “Liam O’Brien Capitals” into a Google search and one click gives you enough photos to fill a […]

Foxy Friday: Elias Lindholm

This week’s Foxy Friday suggestion came to us from one of our twitter followers, Ellie (aka @hockeyfied) Besides the obvious (#Sweden), I honestly had no idea who Elias Lindholm was. But I do now. Bless you, Ellie, for enlightening me. Everyone meet Elias Viktor Zebulon Lindholm. Yes, that it is actually his name, and yes, […]

Foxy Friday: Robert Bortuzzo

I’ve had late-night work events followed by early mornings all week, haven’t even been home in three days and I started this post at 8 AM. Still nothing – nothing! - shall keep me from a Foxy Friday that is 10 months, two dinners and one KISS costume in the making. Foxy Friday: Robert Bortuzzo You may […]

Foxy Friday: Nino Niederreiter

It’s Friday, folks, so you know what that means! FOXY FRIDAY! Today, we’re featuring a guy with one of the coolest names in hockey – Nino Niederreiter. Say that five times fast. But who exactly IS Nino Niederreiter? Nino is part of the youth movement in Minnesota, part of a core group of players which […]

Foxy Friday: Rich Clune

You should know we didn’t discover Rich Clune when James Neal got traded to the Predators.  Any NHL player who is sassy on Twitter piques our interest pretty early.  But standing next to – or taking in – one of our favorites certainly brings the light. Even Puck Daddy has a piece about Neal & […]

Foxy Friday: Derick Brassard

I watched the Kings/Rangers game Wednesday night.  I said I wouldn’t, but I’m visiting my parents and watched with my dad exactly the way we did in 1994 when last the NYR won the Cup.  Total time machine.  After twenty years  what has changed?  Absolutely nothing.  My anti-Rangers yelling at the TV is just more colorful and my father […]

Foxy Friday: Matt Niskanen

This took forever today because I was having too much fun.  It’s time!  Time for turtles and Minnesota accents and the true, though somewhat unsung, love of Penguins fans everywhere.  Unless you are me, Lindsay or Alison, then there is a lot of singing. Foxy Friday: Matt Niskanen Most of you met Nisky that time […]

Foxy Friday: TJ Brodie

As the regular season comes to a close, we’ll start to remember and eulogize those teams that battled and bruised and sacrificed, but in the end, fell short of the post-season.  But before you reach for that pint of ice cream or in Pants’ case, that bottle of red wine (RIP Capitals), we have something […]

Foxy Friday: US vs. Canada

It has all come down to this. We didn’t pick the teams.  We wouldn’t have put them head-to-head until the gold medal game but let’s be honest, we can’t handle that.  We can’t even handle today.  Before we close our office doors and pretend to be throwing things and shrieking for work, let’s face off […]

Foxy Friday: Birthday Edition

To say that Chuck and I are busy is like saying that Tyler Seguin is attractive: both true and a laughably inadequate description of real life. Today is Tyler’s 22nd birthday.  It’s also Friday.   Despite emails arriving in my inbox so frequently that the little “ping” now sounds like a goal horn, I thought […]

Foxy Friday: Ben Bishop

Hello, Foxy Friday.  We’ve missed you.  We’ve often spent your time doing actual work (that we didn’t do all week), when we should’ve spent the day more enjoyably.  Like this. Foxy Friday: Ben Bishop You probably heard the Tampa Bay goalie’s name a lot right after you didn’t hear it at all – Ben was […]

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 […]

Foxy Friday: 2013 Yearbook

This time last year we were in rough shape.  We’d run out of things to talk about, the lockout lingered and winter was just the cold, terrible place it always is for people who don’t watch hockey.  But with a few (hundred thousand) holiday wishes, things got right in a hurry and 2013 turned out […]

Foxy Friday: Charlie Coyle

For those of you who may not know, Pants and I are proud alumnae of Boston University, Class of We’ll-Never-Tell-For-Fear-Of-Revealing-Our-True-Ages.  BU is a college hockey powerhouse and consistently produces NHL players. Right now there are a plethora of former Terriers representing in the big show – Nick Bonino, Alex Chiasson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colin Wilson, and […]

Foxy Friday: Matt Calvert

I don’t remember how this guy came to my attention, but when I almost Foxy Friday’d him a few weeks ago, he was injured (like everyone else). Now he’s back and refreshed my memory in the best possible way – by scoring last night against the Rangers.  So here you have it, friend. Foxy Friday: […]

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 […]

Foxy Friday: Paul Martin

Last Friday, I struggled to choose a Foxy Friday who was healthy and playing.  One man heard my plea, and so returned to the lineup that very night.  A real American hero. Foxy Friday: Paul Martin Paul missed two games to injury, getting back in the lineup on 11/15 with an assist in the Pens […]

Foxy Friday: Brandon Bollig

By popular demand, repeated Tweets and just an overall campaign of “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!”, today’s selection is the NHL’s Most Likely to Be Suggested. Foxy Friday: Brandon Bollig Why does Brandon get so many nominations?  Could it be: – The perfect beard? – Stylish outfits? – His excellent taste in music? – Putting […]

Foxy Friday: Alexander Steen

Who the hell is Alexander Steen? That’s what we said. We’re used to seeing names like Crosby, Ovechkin, and Sedin atop the NHL stats page but then we see this… And we’re all… St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen has been tearing…it…up this season. He’s got 14 goals & 20 points so far.  Blues are […]

Foxy Friday: Sam Gagner

I’m tempted to boycott Foxy Friday until someone produces a photo of Crosby and Sutter as Maverick and Goose.  Like a hunger strike, or a tantrum in the candy aisle at Target. Yet I can’t do that when on of our favorite faces has returned to a) it’s former adorableness and b) the game of […]
