Control Yourself

John Tavares wants to control his emotions:   That is, assuming he has any.  I certainly can’t control mine – this ad campaign gives me the stupid giggles, defeating the obvious intention to hypnotize me with John’s voice.  I half-heard it while dozing off, but I’m suddenly inspired to buy a lot of shaving cream […]

This, Again.

I need to ask a serious question, and the appearance of this twice in a row in our Twitter timeline suggests the time is right. If you’re new to this blog, I understand it’s not where you might look in defense of the female sports fan.  I hope you all understand that we’re here to […]

Cute Emergency

What is life with all these PUPPIES?!  Bless the Blackhawks, every one. 2014 Calendar Shoot Teaser - Chicago Loves Pits Warning: Video guaranteed to ruin your productivity and any current search for a real-life boyfriend.  100% increase in likelihood of pet adoption. They really know how to dole it out in increments, these guys. *sigh*

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 […]

Hugs for Hawks

You guys are relentless.  GIVE US PUPPIES!  I think this wins for the most emails, comments, pings, forwards and IMs I’ve ever gotten saying POST THIS NOW.  Okay, okay!  We don’t just sit around the house and blog, you know?  (Yesterday I totally did.) Just when we need someone who can be counted on to […]

Canada is Glorious, Ch. 211

You may recall a while back when I got really excited about this. Like whooping, twirling and scaring Intern Jeff Skinner excited.  (We don’t let him work the Halloween Party.)  Then yesterday, more screams were heard ’round the world as Lindsay and Alison whipped these around the internet. Alison found this teaser:   And she […]

The Day Has Come

Thanks to everyone who sent this to me while I was at the county fair last night. My reaction noise definitely startled some livestock. James Neal appears to have extended his tattoo to a full sleeve. All together now… “UGH.” Okay, that was just me.  And what I really said was, “CoughMikeGreencough.” I don’t hate it […]

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. […]

Step Into the Light

Sneaker Ball, the annual charity event that encourages sports to enhance the lives of children, was held last night in DC.  Guess who won an award? The JB (James Brown) Impact Award goes to an athlete who “has demonstrated outstanding involvement in the community and has used sport to positively impact the area….  Through actions […]

Summer’s Almost Gone

I cannot go away for one second!  It’s like Toy Story in here – I go outside and everything suddenly comes to life.  Where to begin? #TeamEbs took over the NHL Instagram account and used the opportunity to make fun of Molly Ringwald. Our favorite boy band also introduced an act at the Canadian Country […]

#CAMP – Day 3

#CAMP BioSteel Day 3 has come and gone and I’m still wondering what it is we’re supposed to “figure out.” Then at :46 of this video, I stopped caring.   Biz, you can sell me a car anytime.  (I prefer the Mazda 3.)   And just because I can…

#CAMP – Day 2

#Camp Video, Day 2.   All you need to know is… Damn it, Dallas. Only kidding!  Thankyouverymuch, Stars. Also HI JOEL WARD!!! And Hal Gill never ages.  Is BioSteel really embalming fluid?  Because the man doesn’t look a day over 28 (he’s 38). Okay, have at it.   Nealer was interviewed on TSN last night […]

#CAMP Out

It’s time for the best #CAMP we never went to: Camp BioSteel. Exhibit A: James Neal pulling something heavy, showing off his short hair. The photo’s from this Globe and Mail story about James aiming to impress at Olympic Camp.  As in “James might not make the Olympic team.” Don’t even play. The goal of […]

More Moments, Please.

If you put all of my favorite things into one of those lottery machines and gave it a few spins, what are the odds that these four things would fall out? Stamkos #TeamEbs Cabbie Coca-Cola The answer would be zero, but that’s already the name of this campaign. These two will star in the next […]

Fever Pitch

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here!  Chuck has been swamped and I’ve been away for work.  Luckily the internet is everywhere, even during the off-season. Last week the Rangers, Devils and Islanders promoted the pair of outdoor games they’ll play at Yankee Stadium in January as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series. Welcome to […]

Foxy Friday: These Pants

Some weeks are rough.  Chuck has worked 60 hours already and it’s not even noon.  I’ve had a few days that I could have done without.  We’re all mildly panicking because it’s August and we need to wear every dress and pair of open-toed heels before the weather turns.  We are not tan enough, haven’t […]

Foxy Friday: David Rundblad

With a name like @letsgofriday, she should know how to pick a Foxy Friday.  And boy did she ever. Foxy Friday: David Rundblad I have never (ever, not once) heard of this guy.  That’s pretty rare.  So I Googled him and this popped up: First thought: Where has he been all our Fridays?! Second thought: […]

Summer Nights

Oh for heaven’s sake.  Come home from tropical vacation, depressed about going back to work?  Sidney Crosby to the rescue. [Sorry y'all, copyrighted photos from this post were removed by request.  You'll have the survive on screencaps from the CTV interview linked below.] Sid and Brand Marchand took part in the Phoenix Night of Champions […]

15 Will Get You 20

Social media dilemma of the day: You have 15 seconds.  How best to use it? Correct answer: Gabe Landeskog workout video Push-ups, floor pull-ups, TRX abs and patty cake while wearing an Avalanche shirt sized youth XL.  All from a place that is actually called: Meet you guys at the airport. There’s also this video, […]

Some Things Never Change

It’s going to be a long summer of Tumblr and Instagram and whatever you guys send us, but doesn’t it make you happy to know that even in summer things are the same? Somewhere in California, Sidney Crosby is assaulting pockets in a sports store where he never expected there to be a girl. (Source: […]
