Foxy Friday: Raphael Diaz

I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this post. Today’s Foxy Friday has played for not one but TWO of the teams in the NHL that fuel my hate fire. But today, I will smother that raging hate fire and look past the jersey. Today, I will also forget that he is named after one […]

Foxy Friday: Ondrej Pavelec

Who knew Winnipeg was such a helpful city? In addition to being the hometown of Jonathan Toews (and others), they held an actual vote to determine the best looking member of their NHL team. Canada: Using Democracy for Real Things! The result probably surprised no one except Evander Kane, who retaliated with a sweatpants-based protest, […]

Foxy Friday: Tristan Harper

47 feet of snow on the ground. People jumping off their roofs into snow banks.  Wind chills of -20F. While I suffer through this historic Boston winter, I got a little something to warm me (and you) up. (full disclosure: I am writing this post after a copious amount of sake. I am not responsible for my actions. […]

The Good Lie

In his latest and greatest Valentine’s Day video, Cabbie gets Tyler and Jamie to prank their mothers by announcing they will propose to their respective girlfriends on Valentine’s Day.  Girlfriends their mothers have never met, because they aren’t real.   We here at WUYS hold a few truths to be self-evident: 1) Cabbie for President – of […]

Foxy Friday: Tom Wilson

Foxy Friday has been known to possess great power, often resulting in immediate goal-scoring (You’re welcome, Ekblad.) and a general increase in overall hockey prowess. Hey, we strut a little when people tell us we look nice too! In the interest of using our powers for good, we turn a long-awaited Friday eye toward someone […]

Foxy Friday: Aaron Ekblad

Have you ever found something in the least likely place? Like on The Cosby Show, when Vanessa lost her folder because she’d accidentally put it back in the freezer with the ice cream? That’s how we felt a few Fridays back, watching the NHL All-Star Draft. Foxy Friday: Aaron Ekblad It’s not easy to surprise […]

Foxy Friday: Video Power Hour

I had a whole intro written, but I got the Hawks video at the end of this post and it’s wiped my entire brain clean.  Please read all the way to the bottom.  Nothing I’ve ever promised you could be so worth it. The title of Foxy Friday has occasionally been awarded to a collection […]

Foxy Friday: Alex Wennberg

Sometimes when you post a Foxy Friday, you immediately get a text message saying you’re wrong. That there is one choice and one choice only, and that choice is clear. People are so demanding. Foxy Friday: Alexander Wennberg In defense of these texts, Alex is just about the only Swedish NHL player we haven’t featured. […]

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 […]
