You love Jonathan Toews

I can’t resist hockey players and kids, and no one can resist Girl Scout cookies. Not the Blackhawks, not Andrew Shaw and not Jonathan Toews. Video: #WhatsYourGoal: Alexis wants to sell cookies to Jonathan Toews In the video, Captain CharmingPants is back, and this time, he irons. Which is the only thing on Earth he isn’t […]

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 […]

Pens & Pins

A snappy headline escapes me today, but the annual Pens & Pins charity event was held last night, and look who was looking good.   PensTV has a video feature from the event. Everyone is always having so much fun, from the players to the kids. And who wouldn’t? Bowling makes awkward lumps of us all […]

Now That Was Fun

I wrote 90% of this before the the All-Star Game started last night, and changed very little afterward.  My opinion was the same: Best ASG weekend ever.  Sure the setup is wonky, the events kind of hokey. Who cares? It’s supposed to be fun, and dammit, it was really fun!   Thanks to the players […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Hello friends! I know what you’re thinking – who is this loser trying to sit with us in the cafeteria like we’re friends, when she’s barely talked to us in the last three months! Guilty as charged. It’s hard to believe it’s the end of the year already. It was a rough one for me […]

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 […]

Tyler Tuesday: Tats, Stats, Sweaters, and Hats

Pants referenced this photo in her post yesterday, but as the resident Seguinista here at WUYS, I had to weigh in. First off, can we talk about his legs? Now, I knew that he was bow legged and that they were kinda skinny for a hockey player, but in those white tights…I can’t look away.  Seriously, […]

Tyler Tuesday: Weapon of Mass Distraction

My appreciation of all things Tyler Seguin is not news to anyone who reads this blog or follows us on the twitter. At first, my friends did not understand my love for #19/91.  They couldn’t see “it”.  But slowly, over time, their resolve weakened and they willingly joined me on the dark side.  I’ve welcomed […]

More Puppies, Please.

Another day of hockey players and rescue pets? Tuesday, I’ve never liked you so much. Last year I had the Caps calendar, and it could be a front runner again this year.  Or I’ll get them all and do a wall display (and no work)! You need a close up, I know. What’s more perfect: […]

PUPPIES. Really.

Happy December, everyone! As we do annually at this time (see: 2013), we enlisted the help of Alison’s mom to take pictures of the Pens & Paws Calendar. How does it always arrive first? Video from the calendar shoot is here. I am always very susceptible to puppy-related advertising, as evidenced by my love for the […]

Tyler Thursday: Beards and Tats

I know it is not Tuesday but it’s still a day that starts with T, so this post will totally work. If you know anything about me, but know that I love beards and I love tattoos.   Each one on their own is fantastic, but together? Now go in and add hockey to the mix…. […]

Mustache Monday

We are halfway through November, and that means halfway to getting these mustaches off everyone’s faces!  Just kidding – we love Movember and applaud the many men’s health concerns for which it raises awareness and funds. Just don’t wear a mustache home to meet our parents on Thanksgiving. This year I donated on the promise that Mr. Pants would […]

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, […]

Mo Bros, Mo Sistas, Movember

As you well know, Pants and I have a true, strong, and real appreciation for men’s facial hair.  We’ve been blogging about it for years now and like to think that we’ve become experts on the topics.  It sustains us, like manna from heaven. We are all about the beards but this month, we’re all about the mo. Movember – A special […]

#HockeyHalloween2014

Happy Hockey Halloween everyone! It’s that special time of the year again when all of our favorite hockey players dress up in hilarious and sometimes ridiculously tiny, costumes, for our entertainment.  Most of the time, it is to bring joy and smiles to sick kids.  But sometimes it is strictly for our enjoyment. Especially these […]

Trick or Toews

Halloween has arrived a little early for a few of our favorite teams.  In the world of the 24 hour Tumblr news cycle, these guys came to party. Letang is always going for it on Halloween, though we must point out the Mad Hatter is not a prince.  Disney, yes (so close!), but next year, let […]

Hello, Canada!

Let’s talk about this: Not Kate Middleton gossip, remembering Ryan Reynolds is Canadian or even Angelina being honored with an extra “u” from the Queen.  I mean the important stuff. You are reading that right.  Thanks to @tobelerone for seeing this first! This is a real story. IN A MAGAZINE.  It’s teased on the cover!  I […]

Everybody Wins

This week, Tyler Tuesday really overdelivers. If asked for two words to describe Tyler Seguin, Chuck would use “dude” and “perfect.” She is sedated after seeing this on vacation, so allow me….   First of all, Dude Perfect is – as advertised – a group of five guys and a panda.  One guy has a gingerbeard. […]

Table Manners

Oh, Strombo.  Who put these roundtable interview combinations together?  Tavares, Giroux and Seguin at the same table?   It’s awkward.  It’s brilliant.  It’s the cast of The 40-Year-Old Virgin.   Compared to Sid, Hank and Toews all doing the casual leanback, these guys are more nervous and eager.  They’re all sitting forward, shoulders up – they even mimic […]

Let’s Talk About…

At the NHL media tour, George Stroumboulopoulos (@strombo) hosted a series of roundtable discussions with some of our favorite players.   Up first: Sid, Hank and Tazer.  This is a good interview.  I had never seen Strombo before the NHL Awards and apparently he gets some flack for softball-ing questions, but I liked this.  It’s funny, insightful […]
