#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 […]

What I’m trying to say…

It’s here, it’s here!  The most exciting, heartbreaking, hair-tearing, curse-hurling, cheering, crying, social-life-cancelling time of the year! To celebrate the start of a new season, SportChek had Sidney Crosby list 39 hockey terms every fan should know: I bet they wrote 38 terms and Sid threw “Geno” in there himself. Assuming you’ve got most of those, and hoping we’re past […]

Intern Update

It’s an awkward moment in any boss’ career when you realize that, over the summer, your intern became hot. We could dial that back down a few notches to “attractive,” because Intern Jeff Skinner will always have the face of a 12-year old and be our equivalent of a little brother.  But it’s safe to say […]

Could Be Dangerous

I AM GETTING EXCITED!  Like Jesse Spano-on-pills excited.  Less than two weeks until hockey starts and I should warn you:  I may go this entire season using only gifs from Sherlock. I am laaaaaaaaaaate to this fandom but it really explains Life, the Universe, and Everything.  (Double Martin Freeman nerd-reference there, for anyone still with me.) […]

#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 […]
