Day Two (and Three, if you count OT)

One more  night in the books!  Welcome back to my way to be sure that I have noticed every playoff game around the League for three minutes.  Some of you probably called in “overtime” to work and are just waking up. Blues:4, Blackhawks: 3 Look,  overtime is one thing.  Triple overtime is two more things […]

Ad Men

I hate the Rangers as much as I love a good ad campaign, and this is a good ad campaign.   Oh Ginger Staal.  It’s too bad you’re the only Staal I’ll never like because I would like to like you. (Crank the volume on this one.) “Don’t pick a chain restaurant. ”  Bahahaha.  Marc, […]

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 […]

The Guy Can’t Help It

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaha.  I’m crying. The internet is KILLING it today!  Hank directs a Head & Shoulders commercial and finds that if you want something done PERFECTLY you have to do it your own perfect Swedish self.   Between the slow motion and the leather jacket, we are a mustache away from a Mangum PI remake.  Starring […]

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 […]

Fever Pitch

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here!  Chuck has been swamped and I’ve been away for work.  Luckily the internet is everywhere, even during the off-season. Last week the Rangers, Devils and Islanders promoted the pair of outdoor games they’ll play at Yankee Stadium in January as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series. Welcome to […]

There Will Be Blood… and Milkshakes

If last night’s Bruins/Rangers game was a movie, it would be called “There Will Be Blood”. Lumber was a-flying and the team trainers were going through cotton gauze like Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends. Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Carl Hagelin were just some of the players that needed zippers to close up gashes. Tyler […]

Foxy Friday: Dan Girardi

Remember that time in late January/early February 2012 we went a little crazy and named a bunch of New York Rangers at Foxy Fridays? Yea, well this guy wasn’t one of them.  We’re idiots.  Thank goodness, WUYS fan Brenda (@wishinonehand) is on top of it.  She is this week’s Foxy Friday Fan Challenge winner!  Check […]

It’s Good to be… Rick Nash

Last night, my hockey/lumberjack boyfriend scored his 300th NHL goal. Rick Nash was all…   And I was all… Then Rick Nash scored his 301st career goal. He was all…   And I was all… Flyers did managed to score two goals – including one that one off of Jake Voracek’s face – but alas […]

Drop It Like…

In this season’s first episode of the Penguins series “In the Room,” you can learn all about Joe Vitale, the very short pre-season and other fascinating hockey-related things. Then forget them all in the last 10 seconds. The next thing Sid will have to pick up off the floor is me. You can watch the […]

A Girl’s Guide to Girls

The phrase “put your foot in your mouth” is especially painful when that foot is wearing a high heel. Today the Rangers posted this article to their website.  Read it, then come back. A Girl’s Guide to Watching the Rangers (screencaps @SI_sarahkwak) Cue Berserker Rage.  The article earned a near-instant pile of negative comments and a […]

Five Things – Bruins vs. Rangers

Last night, the Bruins squared off against the Rangers for the 2nd time this young season. Unfortunately, the Bruins lost (or fortunately, the Rangers won, depending on how you look at it) in OT. This game had it all.  A hat trick. Saves. Blocked shots. A geek fight. And a boy named Dougie. Thing #1 […]

All Aboard the StruggleBus

One might have assumed my lockout-induced honeymoon period would last longer than four days. WRONG. Greetings from the StruggleBus.  Last night’s Capitals home opener looked a lot like their season opener in Tampa Bay.  As in: I reminded myself that the upside to losing is ticket prices stay low. The Caps are not, by any […]

Poke the Bear. Get the Chuck.

Last night, Bruins beat the Jets in a shoot-out. Awesome. Top line of Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron, and Brad Marchand looks great, especially the Squirrel, who was all over the ice, collecting up all those acorns. That’s cool. Tuukka Rask played well and looked sharp in the shoot out. Word. But, people, not all was […]

Awkward Family Photos

Roster photos are like a walk through a mine field.  Never have so many attractive guys looked like they were kidnapped, stuffed in a trunk and taken to a Walmart Portrait Studio. Remember that one parent with the plastic comb that “fixed” everyone’s hair on school picture day?  That parent was absent from the Penguins […]

Hit Me Like A Mack Truck

…if a Mack truck wore a NY Rangers sweater. Here I was, just minding my own, thinking I was doing all well with the return of hockey.  I was just going to ease right back into it and get my bearings…then BAM…Rick Nash. Damn you, Rick Nash.  Damn you and your LLBean-boyfriend good looks and […]

Foxy Friday: The Future

With the NHL lockout looming over us like that creepy guy at work always looking over your shoulder at your computer, we’re starting to worry. A large part of our anxiety is that if the NHL does lockout, we will be denied a new shiny batch of Foxy Fridays to choose from.  And that is […]

A Little Less Conversation…

Oh Brad Richards.  Did I fail to realize, in the blinding dazzle of your Foxy Friday teeth, that you are in fact insufferably boring?  Am I judging you too harshly (based on this one interview)? Check out Brad’s photo shoot and feature about about posing starkers for ESPN Magazine’s “The Body Issue”… in which he […]

Foxy Friday: Brad Richards

Please tell me you know this song: That’s Brad Richards’ song.  Depending on the street – is Henrik on the street?  And he is, in fact, a part-time model. ESPN Magazine announced this year’s “Body Issue” athletes, and Brad will get starkers for some lucky, probably unappreciative cameraperson.  Last year it was Kesler, whom Jess […]
