One Last Thing

I hate to say ‘it’s almost that time of year,’ but with about 10 games left in the regular season, we’ll soon say goodbye to some of our favorites. And hello to their off-season golf shorts, boats-on-lakes and selfies.  Amirite? Before it’s over, a last look at some players we haven’t looked at in a […]

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 […]

This is not really happening.

Lord.  The Flyers signed Shea Weber to a $110 million, 14-year offer sheet.  I’ve only been awake for four hours and I’m already sick of this. In non-140 character speak, he has accepted their offer to be paid like this: The Predators have seven days to match the offer.  If they don’t, they’ll get 4 […]

Chewbacca and the Ewoks Sent Packing

For those of you keeping count, last night the Jawas sent Chewie and the Ewoks packing. I think there was a grand disturbance in the force when Chewie tapped into the dark side and smashed Hans Solo’s head into the boards in an earlier series and sometimes karmic galactic payback is a bitch. Chewie will now be able […]

Mean Girls Club 2.0

After this weekend, the heat intensified over how Brendan Shanahan decides suspensions and disciplinary action. But for us women, there’s no secret. After the Campbell empire of nepotism and favoritism crumbled there was hope for a clean start. But after almost a year in the position it looks like The Plastics are back with 2.0 […]

I appreciate you, Nashville Predators.

There are lots of things that I love about playoff hockey. And although I’m a little disappointed with all the nasty play and dirty hits and the lack of respect that some players *coughraffitorres* have shown for their fellow players, there is something about this time of year that makes my heart just fill up […]

And the winner is…

I missed 24/7 last night because I fell asleep re-watching Fright Night with Colin Farrell.  I mean he’s in the movie, he wasn’t with me.  And the movie’s great.  But I will have to catch up on the Rangers/Flyers this weekend, and from the sound of your Tweets there is plenty worth watching! Another thing […]

Rumor Has It … Rumor Has It… Rumor Has it.

I’m leaving him for YOU. Cue Adele. Well. I heard a rumor that DDTBG was holding out for more dough, ah, I mean signing with the Kings because he was waiting to see what Shea Weber was going to do during his arbitration. Why you ask? Well the mill said he felt he was on […]

Wake Me Up When…

What do you guys want to talk about today? The Canucks win.  Somewhere Shea Weber’s beard defeats all attempts to be removed.  That thing had a building permit and poured a foundation, it’s going to be a hot summer in wherever Shea is from.  Ryan Kessler ditches the secret identity ruse and goes full-on super […]

The Beard is Here

Game 6 in Nashville is tonight after the Preds dropped the Red Wings 4-3 over the weekend.  In a related story, it’s a good thing the Preds fly charter because I’m not sure this beard would pass airport security: With glasses?  Please stop.  He’s making a bid to be Mike Green’s Sensitive New Age Defenseman […]

It's Alive

Shea Weber’s beard was interviewed before and after the Preds’ 1-0 loss to Vancouver in Game 1.  I cannot express how much I want Nashville to win.  Not only do I hate the Canucks (especially now, PTSD!) but we need more time for this to reach its full potential: I can’t seem to link to […]

Adopt-A-Cause.

I really do. I was there last year. My caps went out in the first round. This was me last year. But I lived through it. And you will too. You are better than this and your men need you. Maybe not your team but there are others out there in the trenches fighting, that […]

Beard, Still Here

The Nashville Predators advanced to Round 2… and the beard lives on.  Shea Weber’s beard is the top ranking search term around here every day.  The Foxy Friday alum has also been nominated for the Norris Trophy.  That’s a pretty badass few days. They join the Red Wings and Capitals in the waiting room to […]

Beard Watch

We have reached a critical stage in Beard Watch 2011.  The Preds and Ducks are tied 2-2 and it’s looking like this series could go seven games.  In fact, we hope so.  Because this thing is getting epic. Shea Weber is approaching Level ELMO.  He was somewhere between bath time and Rubber Duckie, now he’s […]

The Beard.

This week’s beard update. Here’s where it stands. The Sedin’s are disqualified because they always have one and it’s always groomed. Shea Weber started too early but I’ll include him solely because of its sheer awesomeness but he’s out of the running and same goes for George Parros. And believe it or not, there is actually an attractive […]

Nasville Gets a Jump on Things

Somebody is starting early.  The Nashville Predators defensemen have a challenge going to see whose playoff beard will turn out best.  Is that premature when you haven’t clinched a playoff spot? Or is it simply pointless because Shea Weber already looks like this? This photo is a few days old, so it’s even bushier now.  […]

One Year Mark: Golden Goal

One year ago today, everyone I know was on Twitter or Facebook talking about how great hockey is as the US and Canada faced off in the Olympic gold medal game.  We could hear them cheering in our apartment complex, and it wasn’t the two Russian guys down the hall. My response: I have been […]

Foxy Friday: Shea Weber

I wanted to include Shea Weber in the Skills Competition post, but there are really no YouTube videos of his game highlights.  Just big, bone-crunching hits.  Shea almost won the ’09 Hardest Shot with a 103.4 mph slapper [video].  Chuck’s pal Chara beat him by 2mph.  When you’re going that fast, what’s 2mph? So we’re […]
