Shanabanned: Intern Jeff Skinner

Intern Jeff Skinner scored his 20th goal of the season last night, and it was a beauty.  Skinner had 31 last season during his Rookie of the Year campaign, but that’s what happens.  More goals gets you more defense.  So use your feet: But please, don’t use your feet to kick someone.  With your skate […]

Intern Desk: Back in Action

Hey, I’m back!  Intern Jeff Skinner reporting for duty!  No one around here seems to care, since Pants was on vacation and leaves again tomorrow for her honeymoon.  Supposedly she doesn’t know where they’re going.  Pretend to act surprised when it’s Pittsburgh. At least then she can’t keep telling me I should have closed my […]

You should see him wrap gifts.

Someone leaked the photo shoot from the WUYS office Christmas card! As you already know, “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.” (Seriously, that’s us.) Thanks to those who emailed/commented/Tweeted us this photo.  We could not have lived with ourselves if we’d missed it.

Foxy Friday: Intern Takeover

Intern Jeff Skinner here – as in the ONLY ONE here.  Where is everyone today?  Jeeeeeez.  One Caps vs. Pens game and the whole place needs a day off to recover.  Since it’s Friday and we all know what that means… well, I’m just keeping this place open by nominating myself for Foxy Friday.  The […]

Intern Desk: While I'm Away…

Intern Jeff Skinner here, writing after my day filling in as Canes head coach.  A belated Thanksgiving to all you Americans. I got left in charge of the office this week, while Pants and Chuck said they were home visiting their families.  Even Cassy ditched me for some some American friends just because they had […]

Boss for a Day

Intern Jeff Skinner is off today to stand in as acting Head Coach of the Hurricanes after they fired Paul Maurice this morning. With a record of 8-13-4 and EStaal struggling mightily, this is less shocking and more standard than Boudreau going from the Caps.  Staal has only 5 goals on on 89 shots – […]

Intern Jeff Skinner Gets A Day Off

We work Jeffy pretty hard around here, what with all the photocopying and heavy lifting and runs to the store to get our supply of twizzlers and mexican coca-cola. But today, we decided to give him the day off. Because when you work THIS hard, you deserve it. Go Jeffy Go!

Foxy Friday: BioSteel Sports Camp

Okay, they earned it. Videos and photos and… thank heaven for this week.  And for Alyonka Larionov (person I am most jealous of in the world!)’s Twitter photos.  Who said something about Seguin wearing the heck out of a suit? Did you ask for a t-shirt? And Stamkos showing off (approved): I obliged Intern Jeff […]

Intern Desk: You Want More?

Not enough, eh?   Intern Jeff Skinner here – still working out.  I’ve been working out for DAYS.  Hey Pants, where’s Logan Couture this weekend?  Oh right, hosting golf.   You weren’t invited?  Maybe I’ll send you a ticket to the gun show.  Heck, two tickets and you can sit next to my Calder Trophy. […]

Intern Desk: Field Report

Intern Jeff Skinner here, reporting from the field.  Is there some kind of dictionary for girls?  I cannot understand a word said in the WUYS office since that Kris Letang video.  It’s like an Justin Bieber concert!  Sure, he makes carrying Pants’ purse look waaaaaaay too easy but I am an athlete too.  And I’ve been […]

Our Friends Party with the NHL

Loyal WUYS correspondents @jfrancesw and @chialo managed not to get arrested last night at the NHL Awards party.  And they took a photo just for me!  I fangirlled right out of my socks. What could top that, you ask?  @jfrancesw and the man himself. I should definitely be at an open bar party with Jeff Skinner.  Can you […]

The NHL Awards Nearly Kill Us

I alternate between muting and leaving the room when I’m uncomfortable with what’s on TV.  So I watched the NHL Awards in fits and starts and really tried to only listen when a player was talking. The show was fairly agonizing, featuring some of the flattest jokes possible.  I generally think Jay Mohr’s pretty funny […]

Intern Jeff Skinner: SHINY!

I went to work early this morning and put the Calder Trophy on Pants’ desk.  It’s really shiny.  Then I drew a (second) mustache on her Logan Couture poster and now I’m buying myself a huge breakfast on the corporate card. I’m not bragging, but I did win.  And Vegas was really fun, even if […]

Intern Jeff Skinner: Turn Left

Apparently there’s an episode of The Office where Kelly yells, “Fashion show at work! Fashion show at work!”  The WUYS girls are all over that. I’m excited for the NHL Awards, but frankly I can’t be bothered with what to wear.  I’m just not that into fashion.  And no, Pants, I am not calling Mike […]

Intern Birthday Party!

Happy Birthday, Intern Jeff Skinner!  Instead of having you write your own birthday post, we wanted to make sure you feel completely appreciated by the girls of WUYS.  You are the best (um, only) intern we’ve ever had and while we don’t have to pay you, we can take a moment to remember the highlights […]

Memo from the Intern Desk

Hello.  Intern Jeff Skinner is still here.  I bring bagels.  I held Pants’ hair while she got sick after that 24-hour implosion by all that she holds dear.  What does an intern have to do to get a post around here? How about score 2 goals against France in the World Championships?  Because I did. […]

This Week's Play-Offs Are Brought To You By The Letter "D".

I know what you’re thinking, I’m going to pull the obvious word out my butt, but not yet. I’ll get to Letang and dreamy Mike Green and someone else in a second. But first up, Jeremy Roenick has been harping on the first word, DISCIPLINE. Coming from JR, it conjures a couple of thoughts because […]

Intern Jeff Skinner: Winning!

Intern Jeff Skinner here, with a bone to pick.  I went all the way to DC this week and Pants didn’t even come to my game.  I know she’s busy and stuff, but if I can go to her office and move furniture, buy her lunch and spend an hour at the whiteboard outlining the […]

RE: Intern Jeff Skinner

Let’s be honest.  I got the internship here at WUYS because I was the only person qualified.  I mean, what kind of Craigslist ad asks if you’ve ever competed in figure skating and hockey?  How many people can say that? The TV stations like to show my figure skating highlights a lot.  It’s kind of […]
