Foxy (Almost) Friday: Ice Bucket Challenge

We really miss hockey, but it’s safe to say this off-season is going down in history.  Best ever?  Well, it’s not the worst and I’m not waiting for Friday. The Ice Bucket Challenge began in July in support of ALS research.  Read more about it here and hire Frates & Quinn for more marketing campaigns.  The movement […]

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, […]

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 […]

Intern Intervention

Remind a girl – how did we have fun before Twitter? While this picture is funny (and by funny I mean ALARMING and BACK UP, HONEY), the best part comes from our friends at @Section328: Now, now.  I like TSwizzle and have been known to bust into a sing-along at the top of my lungs. […]

Intern Birthday!

Oops, am I late?  We’ve been celebrating Intern Jeff Skinner’s birthday.  He’s 21 today, so… we were having apple juice and cake. And we made him serve it.  This is a job, people! Jeff’s big day comes during the un-offseason.  He’s rather be in the playoffs, but how does Jeff feel about playing for Team […]

Not the INTERN!

This really isn’t funny. When we hire interns, we expect them to work.  When I drive all the way to Raleigh for the Bolts vs. Canes game on Saturday, 2/23, I expect Intern Jeff Skinner to play. Jeff is out of the Canes lineup with an undisclosed “upper body injury.”  Don’t look at us like […]

Intern Desk: Couples Retreat?

The lockout is making people CRAZY.  First Toews is using a baseball bat for hockey and Giroux, a golf club.  Crosby’s wandering free in civilian clothes, striking fear into the heart of pockets everywhere (and fangirl sobs into ours).  Patrick Kane took his mom to Switzerland, for heaven’s sake. Now I’ve figured out where Intern […]

Happy Birthday, Pants!

Obligatory Birthday Post! Happy Birthday to my dear dear friend and hockey partner-in-crime, Pants! Now I know that this whole stupid lock out thing has got you depressed.  Hopefully these amazing gifs will cheer you up…  

Camp Biosteel: Day 1

I’ve been sitting here for 15 minutes trying to think a safe-for-work way to describe this. The best I could do is a photo play-by-play of me, earlier today.  Enjoy. Someone posts that a Camp Biosteel video is up: The video opens with Steven Stamkos doing something so extraordinary that it can only be described […]

Paging Intern Jeff Skinner

Where is Intern Jeff Skinner right now?  At Biosteel Camp slacking off when he should be forwarding our collective resume for this job? Talented, witty, personable with a communications degree… sounds like some people around here.  (I left off the part about the criminal background check, which probably include a Google search and then ZIP, […]

Intern Desk: Pay Day

Intern Jeff Skinner here.  Jeez, I thought it was tough to get a word in during the regular season.  If Landeskog could keep his shirt on, maybe we’d have some bandwidth left!  Ahem, as I was trying to say… I signed a $34.35 million, 6-year contract. Not that anybody cares, because Crosby is doing something […]

Birthday Boy: Intern Jeff Skinner

Break out the Mexicolas and sprinkles… It’s Intern Jeff Skinner’s birthday!! Jeff turns 20 today, so he’ll be doing… exactly what he does every other day.  Drinking a gallon of milk, giving up his seat on the Metro and buying Girl Scout cookies.  Sorry Skinns, we can Party in the USA next year. Oh heck, […]

Shanabanned: Intern Jeff Skinner

Intern Jeff Skinner scored his 20th goal of the season last night, and it was a beauty.  Skinner had 31 last season during his Rookie of the Year campaign, but that’s what happens.  More goals gets you more defense.  So use your feet: But please, don’t use your feet to kick someone.  With your skate […]

Intern Desk: Back in Action

Hey, I’m back!  Intern Jeff Skinner reporting for duty!  No one around here seems to care, since Pants was on vacation and leaves again tomorrow for her honeymoon.  Supposedly she doesn’t know where they’re going.  Pretend to act surprised when it’s Pittsburgh. At least then she can’t keep telling me I should have closed my […]

Foxy Friday: Intern Takeover

Intern Jeff Skinner here – as in the ONLY ONE here.  Where is everyone today?  Jeeeeeez.  One Caps vs. Pens game and the whole place needs a day off to recover.  Since it’s Friday and we all know what that means… well, I’m just keeping this place open by nominating myself for Foxy Friday.  The […]

Intern Desk: While I'm Away…

Intern Jeff Skinner here, writing after my day filling in as Canes head coach.  A belated Thanksgiving to all you Americans. I got left in charge of the office this week, while Pants and Chuck said they were home visiting their families.  Even Cassy ditched me for some some American friends just because they had […]

Boss for a Day

Intern Jeff Skinner is off today to stand in as acting Head Coach of the Hurricanes after they fired Paul Maurice this morning. With a record of 8-13-4 and EStaal struggling mightily, this is less shocking and more standard than Boudreau going from the Caps.  Staal has only 5 goals on on 89 shots – […]

Independent Study

I went to look for this video and I typed “Intern Jeff Skinner” into Google. Hahahahaha. Well Intern Jeff Skinner set his dimples to stun on Saturday night and had 3 points against the Penguins.  If I didn’t love him, I’d hate him.  He scored a scrappy little backhand lifter, then served up a pass […]

Foxy Friday: 11.11.11

That is, Happy Jordan Staal Day everyone! You may insert your own favorite #11, from this list of all active players wearing today’s lucky number: There’s a legitimate campaign around WUYS to make it Zach Boychuck day, but we told Intern Jeff Skinner he can’t vote for his own roommate .  Especially when said roommate gives […]
