The NHL A(wk)wards

Two posts in two days? This place is like Santa’s Workshop! Last night was the annual NHL Awards, or as we like to call it: the NHL A(wk)wards. Normally an unfunny, bumblingly-hosted, C-list celebfest, last night’s show was most of those things again. But better, no? I confess to liberal use of the mute button, […]

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, […]

Tyler Tuesday: Beardspiration

Tyler and the Dallas Stars giving new meaning to the phrase “by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin”. They just squeeked into the playoffs and took then second Wild Card spot in the West.  I’m genuinely excited for Tyler (really I am!), given the circumstances of his departure from Boston.  He has matured into a high […]

Tyler Tuesday: Step Aside, Mortals

Once there was a man.  His name was Daryl Reaugh, aka Razor.  Once this man did an interview with Tyler Seguin.  A photo was taken. This photo, to be exact. In any other realm, we’d be talking about Razor in this photo because he’s kinda of a Harrison and his suit game is mad tight. But not […]

Happy birthday, Lindsay!

Tomorrow is birthday time for our pal Lindsay!  She may be on a warm-weather vacation without us, presumably eating cake, but we guarantee she’s also watching hockey. Boys don’t always remember dates, so Steven Stamkos’ gift arrived a little early – two goals in last night’s win over Buffalo.  First he tied the game:   […]

Tyler Tuesday: 35,000 feet

Chuck here! Hello from 37,000 feet! Yup, that’s right. This Tyler Tuesday is coming to you from somewhere over America. Sure, I have no legroom and the guy in front of me just leaned his seat back, but I don’t care. It’s Tyler Tuesday! Fittingly I was in Texas this week for a work conference. […]

Tyler Tuesday

Today marks what I hope will be a semi-annual feature extolling the virtues and magnificence of one very special person. Like my esteemed colleague Pants, and her undying love for Mike Green, my love and admiration for Tyler Seguin has become too great and all consuming for it to not have its own dedicated day. […]

Moment Hero

To celebrate the return of our favorite blond (sorry Landeskog) to the ice tonight, we (and Alison) bring you the newest Coke Zero “Moment Zero” ad starring Jordan Eberle and Steven Stamkos. You can see the commercial exclusively at TSN’s Bar Down site.  It’s another adorable story in which humor plucks heartstrings and adversity is […]

Spring Breakers

Welcome back, NHL hockey. Before I watch my first evening game in weeks tonight, the Olympic break needs a nod to non-Olympians.  Not everyone went to Sochi – or stayed home watching ice dancing. Without posting the entire Tumblr tag (Honestly, where do people find this stuff?), it’s safe to say you wish you went […]

I’ll Buy That

I was right in the middle of working when this happened. Sidney Crosby Reebok commercial: “Home” Okay, day’s over! Blame Alison. There are also a few new Crosby commercials on YouTube.  Here’s my wallet, Reebok, just take it.  I don’t even care what you’re selling.   Let me pause that for you. Side note: I […]

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 […]

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 […]

GLAAAAAAAAASES

I’m mad at you! I am still so mad at you for what you did that I don’t even want to see your… GLASSES????? Holy moly. There’s only one explanation for this.  James Neal reads this blog. I’m not kidding when I say I’m still mad.  James Neal and I need to have a long […]

Intern Hat Trick!

We will never hear the end of this one.   Only kidding.  Congratulations Intern Jeff Skinner on his first career hat trick! Look how excited everyone is!  Especially Jordan! Especially us! And these people in the Intern Jeff Skinner Fan Club – Nashville Chapter! (Psst: We told you so.) Forget that.  More exclamation points!!!!!  Jeff […]

Congratulations on Your Face

SCENE: Thursday, 1 A.M.  Too tired to sleep and still punch drunk from watching the Penguins in person, Pants scrolls through Instagram. CUT TO: Point of view shot of Pants’ phone. CUT TO: Reaction shot.  Hold for 20 minutes. END SCENE. Sometimes, I just lose it (ex: Matt Niskanen and That is Not a Turtle) […]

Focus Features

If you’re the NHL’s First Star of the Week, you’re already having a time. It’s not really fair that you also look like this: Hi-res left/right Jeez, Stamkos.  Leave something for the mere mortals. These are (again) from the Sharp for Men November ’13 issue photo shoot.  You can download the issue for your iPad […]

Team Canada – Casting Call

#CAMP may be over, but camps are just beginning.  Invitees for Team Canada’s Olympic camp were arriving in Calgary all weekend, as documented by this airport employee: Source: Twitter There is a space for volunteers.  AND IT IS BLANK. Alas, the enterprise of TSN is not to be underestimated.  They were live on the scene […]

Blackhawks Convention ’13

Both Chuck and I are drowning in work today, but over the weekend hockey players were dancing.  Emergency post. Remember last year’s Blackhawks Convention, when we thought nothing could ever top this? Phone booth not included. Patrick Kane heard us.  And declared shenanigans. Bless this girl who gets up to the mic and asks Toews […]

Yeah, That Works.

I was going to write a whole Pens eulogy as soon as my emotions stop looking like splatter paint and just wash away.  Some of that post would have been along the lines of, “Crosby is not the only player on the Penguins, everyone needs to get a freaking grip.” Then Amanda sent us this. […]
