Mikey Monday

Remember when every Monday was about Mike Green?  Two-plus years of Mondays and that whole time, nothing this great ever happened: I don’t know where this came from, but I saw it in five places and decided that equals public domain.  They are so damned cute, I don’t think they’d care!  Everything is making me happy […]

It’s Alright, It’s Okay.

The season is officially over for both of us.  We may have that summertime sadness, but it doesn’t mean we can’t be awesome.  As the writer Hal Borland said, “No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it’s turn.” In fact, the off-season is what some people do best.  Maybe they’ve been hanging around, waiting for us […]

All the Small Things

I was really going to do a post about this Winnipeg Jets’ cookbook… so close.  They Instagrammed something and being married to a chef, I was hooked!  Sadly the video is a yawn but those wings looked pretty delish.  It’s for charity and so, yeah. Off to the interwebs to find something to care about. […]

Know When to Hold ‘Em

Someday I’ll go to a hockey team’s Casino Night.  Someday I’ll have $250 to spend on an event that doesn’t involve either Vegas or getting a tan.  Or they could move these to Vegas and I could do all three at once. The Caps and Islanders hosted casino nights last night.  The events benefit wonderful […]

Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike!

Guess what day it is? (I’ve been waiting a long time to make that truly terrible joke. If you don’t know: GEICO Hump Day commercial.) Mike Green scored two goals last night, including the OT game-winner. Including me jumping off the couch, from under a pile of blankets, which is the equivalent of true love […]

Candid Canada

I hope you made a New Year’s resolution to watch more hockey, if that’s possible.  Not in my house. While the US announced their Olympic roster after the Winter Classic, Canada found another way to fill their hockey quota. Video: CBC – Defending Gold: Inside the Making of Canada’s Team It’s thirty minutes inside the minds […]

All I Want for Christmas…

I need an ugly Christmas sweater for a party Saturday night.  Anyone have one I can borrow? Video: Happy Holidays from Your Washington Capitals  This year, remember that Christmas isn’t just about onesie pajamas and Joel Ward cracking up from the very first frame.  There is a deeper meaning.  Like when Ovi says, “Hey guys, […]

Terrible Tuesday

Get it, like Mikey Monday?  Well I can maniacally laugh now because the Caps just won an overtime comeback victory, but look at this: That would be 18 penalty minutes in under 12 minutes of game time.  Mike Green: Time Turner.  Making time out of time that hasn’t happened yet because he has that many […]

The Most Wonderful Time

The holiday season is here!  We have stuffed our faces and basked in food coma.  We’ve broken out the ski socks and mittens.  I watched 5 straight episodes of Covert Affairs before bothering to check if I could fast forward the commercials.  Now that we’re back after American Thanksgiving, everyone is ready to work: Movember is […]

The Forever File

At the Caps game last night, I was hoping Mike Green would give me something to Monday about. Did he ever.   Let me tell you what it looked like in person, at real-life speed.   At least in the end Mike was laughing: Because I will be laughing every day, forever. It’s just so…

What the Fox(y)?

The later the hour, the dumber the things that make me laugh.  And once an idea is in my head it will never leave. Does anyone look at this:   And see this? Right? If Mike still had long hair, this would be too much. What IS the meaning on Stonehenge? I shamelessly cut Brooks […]

Mikey Monday: So Close

Mike Green was really trying to give me something to Monday about when he scored two goals in the Caps season opener vs. Chicago.  Then both goals were credited to Mikhail Grabovski. Mike is not used to sharing this MG stuff with anyone. Say what? Mike did have two assists vs. Chicago, plus another two […]

Caps Lock

Behold, part of the glorious two-page Caps preview spread in today’s Washington Post!  (Sorry Coach, the copier can only scan so much.) Click for a much larger picture. Read the preview here.  Note the Post has the Penguins winning the East, by 1 point over the Bruins. Though the Caps lost their opener vs. Chicago […]

The Day Has Come

Thanks to everyone who sent this to me while I was at the county fair last night. My reaction noise definitely startled some livestock. James Neal appears to have extended his tattoo to a full sleeve. All together now… “UGH.” Okay, that was just me.  And what I really said was, “CoughMikeGreencough.” I don’t hate it […]

Mikey Monday: We’re Back

Oh Monday.  It’s been a while since I was so excited to see your face. And by your face, I mean Mike Green’s. The Capitals Convention was this weekend, so Mike’s friends are along to make your Monday better.  I had a hot date with Deb (@DLF1021) and Pam (@sunnyinNJ) who packed their high-powered cameras. […]

Step Into the Light

Sneaker Ball, the annual charity event that encourages sports to enhance the lives of children, was held last night in DC.  Guess who won an award? The JB (James Brown) Impact Award goes to an athlete who “has demonstrated outstanding involvement in the community and has used sport to positively impact the area….  Through actions […]

Summer’s Almost Gone

I cannot go away for one second!  It’s like Toy Story in here – I go outside and everything suddenly comes to life.  Where to begin? #TeamEbs took over the NHL Instagram account and used the opportunity to make fun of Molly Ringwald. Our favorite boy band also introduced an act at the Canadian Country […]

Team Canada – Recess

There is video from yesterday’s Team Canada ball hockey game. The players all look so happy – almost as happy as I would be if this were a t-shirt shop and I had a bag full of Canadian money.  Collect all 48! There are moments when, as part of the unfreezing process, you have no […]

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 […]

Foxy Friday: Glasses

It started with this: from Geno’s Instagram Well no, our obsession with boys in glasses began long ago.  Maybe it was when Chuck and I got our own glasses, or when we realized that we a) are nerds and b) like nerds.  Glasses may be more cool than Coke bottle these days, but the allure […]
