Foxy Friday: Derick Brassard

I watched the Kings/Rangers game Wednesday night.  I said I wouldn’t, but I’m visiting my parents and watched with my dad exactly the way we did in 1994 when last the NYR won the Cup.  Total time machine.  After twenty years  what has changed?  Absolutely nothing.  My anti-Rangers yelling at the TV is just more colorful and my father […]

Sunshine and Tan Lines

I never imagined I’d thank the Rangers for anything, but the day has come. Reminder: Chris Kreider went to BC.  See also: I hate myself. The Rangers took to the beach in Venice to shake off their Game 1 OT loss and work on their tans.  Pale guys with beards – that’s what playoff hockey is all […]

It’s Not Over

The Kings’ win over the Blackhawks last night ended hopes for a Stanley Cup Final I would actually care about.  While Sad Kaner Face is something I cannot handle today, I will admit that this is brilliant: We all know that I hate the Rangers, but I am surprised to admit that I don’t hate them […]

One Away

It’s days – or Conference Finals – like this when I wish the Blackhawks were my favorite team.  Wouldn’t that be fun? I like the Hawks a lot, and they bailed me out of some frustrated west coast years when I couldn’t watch Eastern Conference teams.  But it’s not the same, cheering for someone you […]

Be Cool

Penguins love me back, lead series vs. Rangers 3-1 It was another good night at Camp Pants, but let’s not get too excited yet.  I mean, in-game it’s fine to look like this picture I found by searching “Gibbons gif:” It’s exactly what Penguins’ fans looked like after the gif I really wanted: He meant to do […]

Night Moves

I had a good night.  Did you guys have a good night? Fleury throws another shutout, Pens lead Rangers 2-1 MAF had his second shutout in as many days, standing on his head at times to keep the NYR off the board in Game 3.  Not bad for a goalie who has playoff confidence problems, right? […]

Happy Monday

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!  I got to wear shorts and a tank top this weekend AND the Penguins won last night, so I don’t even hate Mondays.  It’s Day 20 of the playoffs, and if you spent the past few days enjoying the sun, here’s what was happening on TV: Penguins and Rangers series […]

Bring It On (Again)

Round 2 is upon us like prom season, and everyone finally has their dates.  How are you feeling?  Like the prettiest girl in the room?  Anyone afraid someone else might wear the same dress?  I’m nervous and we definitely need a chaperone. We bid Round 1 farewell with this announcement: I am no longer 100% right. Thanks […]

Hard Out Here

Well, that was a night. Penguins take years off my life, defeat Blue Jackets in series: 4-2 What are we supposed to do?  NOT hope for leads because they get snatched away? NEVER want a power play for fear of giving up a shorty?  I don’t know which end is up except the Penguins won […]

Weekend Update

I didn’t get to watch much hockey after Friday night, but the playoffs wait for no DVR.  In case anyone else (mostly) missed the weekend festivities… The networks have all kinds of on-hiatus hockey players pitching in as commentators during these playoffs.  Let us make the offer official: Alex Pietrangelo, you and your currently unemployed […]

Day Seven

It was bound to happen and one night it did (Thanks, Garth)… the Tampa Bay Lightning were the first team eliminated from the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  I haven’t heard from Lindsay, who is probably wrapped in her Stamkos jersey like a shroud and laying on the floor in the space between her bed and […]

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 […]
