Day One

There are two ways to spend any night during the NHL Playoffs: Enjoy a composed evening of important hockey that matters on a theoretical level, but not to your team. Like me, last night: One goal games all around, and no one made it look easy.  Here we go, Round One: Day One already gearing […]

Happy birthday, Lindsay!

Tomorrow is birthday time for our pal Lindsay!  She may be on a warm-weather vacation without us, presumably eating cake, but we guarantee she’s also watching hockey. Boys don’t always remember dates, so Steven Stamkos’ gift arrived a little early – two goals in last night’s win over Buffalo.  First he tied the game:   […]

Foxy Friday: Ben Bishop

Hello, Foxy Friday.  We’ve missed you.  We’ve often spent your time doing actual work (that we didn’t do all week), when we should’ve spent the day more enjoyably.  Like this. Foxy Friday: Ben Bishop You probably heard the Tampa Bay goalie’s name a lot right after you didn’t hear it at all – Ben was […]

Vote Stamkos

We’re 21 days from the Olympics and I’m already emotionally exhausted.  This Steven Stamkos video, sponsored by Coke, features the most straightlaced and patriotic cardigan in history. Add in childhood video, profile shots and candid confessions of previous disappointments and I feel like I just voted for something. Will Stammer be ready to play in […]

The NeverEnding Story

When we don’t post for a few days, it’s safe to say we’re either a) really busy or b) laughing so hysterically over the cat face in #21 of 35 Greatest Animal Photobombers of All Time that we can’t type.  Yet through our tears, we see big events are happening. Tonight, the man we call Squishy […]

Focus Features

If you’re the NHL’s First Star of the Week, you’re already having a time. It’s not really fair that you also look like this: Hi-res left/right Jeez, Stamkos.  Leave something for the mere mortals. These are (again) from the Sharp for Men November ’13 issue photo shoot.  You can download the issue for your iPad […]

Canada is Glorious, Ch. 211

You may recall a while back when I got really excited about this. Like whooping, twirling and scaring Intern Jeff Skinner excited.  (We don’t let him work the Halloween Party.)  Then yesterday, more screams were heard ’round the world as Lindsay and Alison whipped these around the internet. Alison found this teaser:   And she […]

More Moments, Please.

If you put all of my favorite things into one of those lottery machines and gave it a few spins, what are the odds that these four things would fall out? Stamkos #TeamEbs Cabbie Coca-Cola The answer would be zero, but that’s already the name of this campaign. These two will star in the next […]

Foxy Friday: These Pants

Some weeks are rough.  Chuck has worked 60 hours already and it’s not even noon.  I’ve had a few days that I could have done without.  We’re all mildly panicking because it’s August and we need to wear every dress and pair of open-toed heels before the weather turns.  We are not tan enough, haven’t […]

Chip Shots

Back on Monday, Steven Stamkos and James Neal played in the RBC Canadian Open.  As always, golf is just an excuse to make questionable fashion decisions and work on your aim.  Like any good night out. Stammer took this opportunity to wear this: Source: Twitter What is this math?!  I see constants – hideous sponsor-required […]

Don’t Stop the Pop

Hockey is a taskmaster.  It does not care that we’ve put off our lives for the last six months.  It has no sympathy for my split ends, ragged cuticles or pile of overdue library books.  Hockey doesn’t pause just because Jonathan Toews is on a bender and I want to watch the Blackhawks parade. Patrick […]

Tearin’ Up My Heart

Five days left left?  NHL ’13, we hardly knew ye!  Let’s be honest, though. The 2013 season has not been kind to all those we love. Some teams, after these grueling months, could use a break, a tan and another go at it next year.  I’m not saying quit, of course.  Feel free to ruin […]

We Want More!

When someone talks to me about Steven Stamkos scoring goals:   And Stammer never lets a girl down.  Last night he scored his 200th career goal in the Lightning win over the Flyers.  Bonus yay. Alone in my car with Game Center Live radio playing on my phone, I yelled, “Hey girl, I’m Steven Stamkos!” Not […]

Southern Hospitality

How can a hockey game be better than a hockey game? When there’s tailgating. Us on a nicer day (next time). The fantastic folks of @Section328 invited me and my friends to their pre-game party on our Raleigh Road Trip.  Rainy, cold weather could not stop them from setting up the tent and busting out the Chicken […]

Birthday Boy: Steven Stamkos

Steven, how are you going to spend your 23rd birthday? Staring down opponents? Scoring 60? Making sure your name is on the Rocket Richard trophy… twice? Admiring goalies even as your ruin their GAAs? Relaxing? Pants-optional shoveling? Jumping ridiculously high? Reading WUYS? Yeah, that’s the one.  Happy birthday, Stammer! The Lightning have more goals than […]

Foxy Friday: Ryan Malone

It’s been all Tampa Bay up in here this week so I thought of no better way to round out the week that with a Tampa Bay Lightning Foxy Friday! This week’s honoree – Ryan Malone Here are the stats on Mr. Malone – Born in Pittsburgh on December 1, 1979.  Not only is he […]

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 […]

Buzz the Tower

Does the Tampa Bay Lightning team insurance cover mass heart attack when Steven Stamkos Tweets this picture? My kind of climate crisis. Before the close up, you have to sign a waiver saying it’s not my fault if you pass out, hit your head and prance off into an unconscious remake of Top Gun. Shirtless […]

Think Snow

How to know WUYS is the blog for you: You’d gladly trade a summertime pool boy for the Stamkos Pants-Optional Shovel Service doing squats in your wintry yard. Once again: Gary Roberts, will you adopt us? Pssst, we were only kidding.  Steven’s well qualified for summer work too. Clearly what we need is a blizzard. […]

Foxy Friday: Steve Yzerman

For this week’s edition of Foxy Friday, I decided to jump in the WUYS TARDIS and go back in time to honor one of the foxiest (and talented) NHLers of all time… Steve Yzerman The former Detroit Red Wing and current GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning is a legend. Plain and simple. And if […]
