#CAMP Day 3 – XS T-Shirts and Man Buns

In all honesty, this year’s #CAMP montages have left us a little MEH. We’re not saying we don’t like them – we just don’t love them. Day 3′s video would have been another mediocre offering but was salvaged by two things: impossibly tight super hero t-shirts and Michael Del Zotto’s samurai ponytail. MDZ’s hair has […]

#CAMP Day 2 – Snack Time

At this time of the year, with the NHL season tantalizingly close, we are in desperate need of something to satiate our hockey hunger.  Normally, we are good with a cheese platter, a few bottle of wine, and Miracle on the DVR. But lately we’ve been so hungry that we are getting HANGRY. Enter BioSteel’s #CAMP.   This […]

More Ice Time

For all the athletes participating, it’s no surprise the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was covered on American SportsCenter this weekend.  What’s surprising is they included the Crosby video – almost the entire thing – even before they showed LeBron or Justin Timberlake!  Finally, it’s The World According to Pants. So naturally, it was time James Neal […]

BHC2014: Just Dance

Every summer, the Blackhawks rub our faces in their excellence and team spirit by hosting yet another Blackhawks Convention.  Sometimes they bring the Cup for extra envy-inducing purposes, but not even the Hawks can win that thing every year.  So how do they make sure everyone gets their money’s worth? Dancing. It’s safe to say the […]

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, […]

The Edge of Glory

Since Psych was not renewed for a 9th season, Chuck & I are officially the best faux-psychic show in town.  No time is more ripe for our charlatan act than Day 1 of the 2014 NHL playoffs.  So sit back and allow us to disagree slightly on who will win in the first round. EAST Bruins […]

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:   […]

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 […]

Foxy Friday: Charlie Coyle

For those of you who may not know, Pants and I are proud alumnae of Boston University, Class of We’ll-Never-Tell-For-Fear-Of-Revealing-Our-True-Ages.  BU is a college hockey powerhouse and consistently produces NHL players. Right now there are a plethora of former Terriers representing in the big show – Nick Bonino, Alex Chiasson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colin Wilson, and […]

The NeverEnding Story

When we don’t post for a few days, it’s safe to say we’re either a) really busy or b) laughing so hysterically over the cat face in #21 of 35 Greatest Animal Photobombers of All Time that we can’t type.  Yet through our tears, we see big events are happening. Tonight, the man we call Squishy […]

Celebrity, Celebrity

  I think I just hallucinated that Sidney Crosby said his celebrity crush is Syndey Bristow.  Did he really say he likes tall, fair girls with long brown hair who are, frankly, a LOT older than he is? Awesome. I happen to be know one. She even has a suitcase catapult. (Side note: I’ve worked […]

Hockey Halloween!

To celebrate Halloween, Intern Jeff Skinner wore his costume to work. Just kidding, that cheater sent Ben Smith in his place! Jeff totally fooled us with this crap, like everyone in comic books and movies ever, and rode off on his Batbike into the night. Guess he didn’t want to be the third part of […]

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 […]

Please, Hertl, Don’t Hurt ‘Em

Hertl for Calder. Okay, so perhaps it is a bit premature to be saying that, but after what Tomas Hertl did last night, can you really blame us? The San Jose Sharks rookie forward scored 4 goals (!) last night.  Each goal he scored was more impressive than the one before and his piece de […]

Friends in Low Places

There are two kinds of people in my life.  People who understand why this: Makes me: And people who don’t.  The first type understands what this means, even if they prefer a different jersey. They understand how I can love someone: While at the same time wishing to crush their lifelong hopes and dreams. They […]

Best Thing I’ve Ever Read at 1:49 AM.

It’s 1:49 AM and I’m crying laughing.  Why, you might ask? The best thing I’ve read in ages: Do the John Tavares Workout at Home - Lighthouse Hockey I don’t know which part is best, the warning to not actually do any of these things or the “Extra Work” that includes (and I quote): After completing […]

Team Canada – Casting Call 2

Summer is over(-ish) and it’s time for Steven Stamkos to put away his white pants.  None of these fashion faux pas on reality TV, boys. As the NHL season nears, players will fight for their teams and for spots on the 2014 Olympic roster.  And, of course, for a rose on our show. First rule […]

#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 […]

Foxy Friday: Instagram

Last week, it was glasses.  This week, we are continuing with our salute to inanimate foxiness by honoring one of our favorite apps, Instagram.   In case you’re not hip to the Instagram, it is an online photo/video-sharing & social networking services that lets users take photos, apply a digital filter, upload them, and share […]
