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…. […]

Vanilla Ice

With no warning, as I strolled through Whole Foods, I saw this on my phone: You better believe I thought I’d shuffled off this mortal coil, right there in front of the bulk lentils.  I wondered how, in the distant future, when my husband met me in the afterlife I would explain that picture of Jonathan Toews that had […]

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 […]

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, […]

Tyler Tuesday: And So It Begins…

The Dallas Stars’ season is over but weep not, interweb friends! You know what that means? More of this! And this! And hopefully much MUCH more of this! #HatTip to Tyler and Co. for even making the playoffs and for holding their own against the Ducks. I’m sure that Seguin would rather still be playing hockey, […]

Tyler Tuesday: Step Aside, Mortals

Once there was a man.  His name was Daryl Reaugh, aka Razor.  Once this man did an interview with Tyler Seguin.  A photo was taken. This photo, to be exact. In any other realm, we’d be talking about Razor in this photo because he’s kinda of a Harrison and his suit game is mad tight. But not […]

Tyler Tuesday

Today marks what I hope will be a semi-annual feature extolling the virtues and magnificence of one very special person. Like my esteemed colleague Pants, and her undying love for Mike Green, my love and admiration for Tyler Seguin has become too great and all consuming for it to not have its own dedicated day. […]

Tales from My Work Email

At my real-life job, there’s a lot of chirping between people who love Crosby (me) and people who hate him (everyone else, including my direct boss plus our Detroit and Philly offices).  Yesterday via email chain, people were begrudgingly admitting to enjoying Canada’s gold medal win and someone even called Sid “one of the best […]

Foxy Friday: Roman Josi

Happy New Year!  Happy Foxy Friday! It’s our First Foxy Friday of the Year and we’re starting it off right. It all actually started in 2013 when there I was,  just minding my own business, drinking a glass of delicious scotch, talking on the twitter, when WUYS reader @sarahconnors drops this Foxy Friday bomb on […]

Best of 2013

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!  Before we bust out our glittery heels and fake eyelashes for tonight, allow us a moment to celebrate the year that was in 2013. We spent a staggering about of energy, effort and time (usually at work) on WUYS this year but it’s really nothing without you guys.  Chuck and […]

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 […]

A Bruins Christmas Spectacular!

From ugly sweater photos and awkward, Russian-accented renditions of “Jingle Bells”, lots of NHL teams are getting into the holiday spirit. Now comes the Bruins’ turn – and it’s a Christmas gem. The Bear in the Gang – A Christmas Spectacular In this Bear and the Gang Christmas Spectacular, the team is all gathered in […]

Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund

This week, we’re featuring yet ANOTHER Swede.  Hey, not our fault that this lovely nation keeps producing the foxiest of men folk. Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund The boring stuff – Born 1988 (aged 25).  6’3″, 220 lb C/LW drafted 25th overall by the Blues in 2006.  In his very young NHL career, he has a […]

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 […]

Maniacal Laugh…

I know we’re only two weeks into the season and this won’t last.  I know that I am jinxing everything by even pointing it out, because one of these teams plays the Capitals tonight and the other plays the Penguins tomorrow. But: While I can, I have to enjoy this. Even this Instagram photo of […]

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 […]

Interview with a…

Be honest. Henrik Lundqvist is probably a vampire. I read a lot of young adult fiction, which clearly qualifies me as an expert on this topic.  Not just Twilight, but Chuck and I are racing through The Mortal Instruments series and everyone’s saying we need to read Vampire Academy.  My point was proven yesterday when […]

Team Canada – Casting Call

#CAMP may be over, but camps are just beginning.  Invitees for Team Canada’s Olympic camp were arriving in Calgary all weekend, as documented by this airport employee: Source: Twitter There is a space for volunteers.  AND IT IS BLANK. Alas, the enterprise of TSN is not to be underestimated.  They were live on the scene […]

Blackhawks Convention ’13

Both Chuck and I are drowning in work today, but over the weekend hockey players were dancing.  Emergency post. Remember last year’s Blackhawks Convention, when we thought nothing could ever top this? Phone booth not included. Patrick Kane heard us.  And declared shenanigans. Bless this girl who gets up to the mic and asks Toews […]

Birthday Boy: Patrice Bergeron

Happy 28th Birthday to the one…the only…the Boston legend himself, Patrice Bergeron. Even if you don’t like the Bruins , you love Patrice. Even Pants loves Patrice. I mean, just look at him. The way he plays. The way he carries himself. His face. There is a reason I call him ‘Perfect Patrice’.
