Foxy Friday: Chris Higgins

As desperately as we might have tried, we cannot ignore Chris Higgins. I mean, he’s a Canuck, for pete’s sake.  AND a Montreal Canadien. These alone make our skin crawl.  It fills us with the fire of a thousands suns.  It makes us rage like a Desperate Housewife who has drank up all her chardonnay and […]

Foxy Friday: Trevor Linden

This lockout has got us all discombobulated. Our minds just aren’t functioning the way they should in October. We should be spending our evenings watching ridiculous amounts of hockey [courtesy of NHL Center Ice] and blogging incessantly. Instead, we are forced to do things like laundry.  Cleaning the bathroom. Reorganizing our closets.  Macrame. Baking cakes. Okay […]

Your Moment of Zen

A funny thing happened at the Seahawks game last night. Yes, I said Seahawks, as in football. Why would I be at  football game? Free tickets. Other than that? THIS! But first, I did not know it was mascot night until there he was, in all his fin-tabulous glory, floundering away on the jumbotron. Of course, I […]

All Hail Jarret Stoll!

 So the Kings making it past Vancouver was like this happening … And it was all because of the guy with the most AWESOME hair this side of the Mississippi! And I can attest from seeing it in person. HOLY CRAP! It deserves a post of its own – hell, it deserves a facebook page of its […]

Don't Be Hatin'

Ok, I’m starting this off with I don’t hate the Vancouver Canucks. I just happen to LOVE the LA KINGS – even more so after seeing them last night. Look at the play-off beard! If Pants was worried about me when we went to see Ovi in SJ in my outfit, she should have chaperoned […]

Kilroy Was Here

There is no accounting for taste in our household. Traitors abound. Mr. Cherrie is a hard-core Buffalo fan.  But when I went to consult my bookie, I mean my oracle- the great swami Osiris Jones, man about town and counselor at law, when he’s not picking NHL play-off games for cat treats, much to my horror this is what […]

Two Tickets To Paradise!

Hey Jumbo Joe … at least pick on someone your own size… Giving the West Coast some love and Mr. Cherrie too … for our anniversary – what better way to celebrate than seeing my beloved DDTBG in person! And on one of our favorite day of the year – FRIDAY THE 13th! Look out Vancouver – […]

Dirrrrrty

The Blackhawks have won five in a row, including an OT nail-biter against Vancouver last night.  Their next game is Sunday vs. Nashville – a big one for playoff position.  Too bad they’re going to have to do it without Duncan Keith: No question that’s a dirty play.  Daniel Sedin struggled back to the bench, […]

Honorable Mentions That Don't Get Mentions

Erik Karlsson is on fire and not mentioned – AT ALL – here. I have been loving him for some time now that the Captials season has been in the crapper with Dale Hunter Hockey. It gave me a chance to watch some other teams I may not have noticed.  Ottawa was not supposed to […]

TGIF

When I get an email from my co-worker Shades with the subject line “Weird Things Happen in Vancouver Friday,” it’s safe to assume he’s been watching hockey clips.  These are from Deadspin.com and almost make us like the Canucks.  Blergh.  Jonathan Toews, hug us! The best thing about this video?   Bieksa and Kesler do […]

Before It Went To A S.O.

I told Mr. Cherrie, the Penguins have won because everyone knows Lou goes down. And even Kevin Weeks is in love with Kris Letang – “He’s silky…” WTF? Does he know something we don’t? Oh well, I’ll share him.

Because We Say So.

It’s time to predict the eventual winners for the 2011-2012 season, so we can look smart and important when spring rolls around.  Or not.  Last year we all picked some combo of the Caps, Blackhawks, Canucks and Penguins [link].  That 25% result is less than the chance that Intern Jeff Skinner’s going to take you […]

This Isn't Where I Parked My Car

Ryan Kesler in ESPN Magazine’s annual “The Body” issue. You know the part in National Treasure when they light the little pool of oil and it spreads 10,000 feet of fire and illuminates a gazillion dollars in gold and stuff?  That’s what happened to the internet when this picture was posted.  You’re gonna have to […]

Is it October yet?!

In another edition of players we can only like until the season starts… Ryan Kesler will appear nude in ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue. More than 20 athletes will do the soap opera strategically-cover-your-business to pose for the annual issue – here’s the list [link]. Kes wanted to get a jump on the competition, so […]

Foxy Friday: Kevin Bieksa

@GreenFan52 (sounds like my kinda person!) suggested KB3 for this week’s Foxy Friday honor.  What do you think? He hits (104 in 66 games this season).  On occasion he fights (3 this year… wait, he fought Patrick Marleau?!).  Mostly he’s just Juice and for every second you hate him, you can’t help but love him […]

Ever Done This?

Mike Duco formerly of the Florida Panthers got traded to Vancouver. If you were him – you’d think JACK POT – right? Going from a basement dwelling team – well – before they spent a boat load of cash and made some mad trades – to an almost Stanley Cup winning team. Not a bad […]

And Now, Back to You

NHL.com reports that Kevin Bieksa is getting a new 5-year, $23 million contract from Vancouver [link].  All together now… DUH. Despite our general dislike of the Canucks, we’ve got a soft spot for Juice.  He’s a total ham.  We bet he cracks himself up the way we do, when no one else is around, about […]

Yes, that really did happen.

“The Bruins have won the Stanley Cup!” Those words will live with me for the rest of my life. For the first time since 1972, the Black and Gold have won the most beauteous and shiniest of all trophies in professional sports.  The Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks, a team which lead the regular season […]

Bear vs. Orca

Well, here we are. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Bruins vs. Canucks. East vs. West. Bear vs. Orca. For fans of both teams, tonight will be a special game.  History will be made. Bruins have the opportunity to win their first Cup in 39 years.  Canucks have the chance to win their first […]

This One's For Boston.

I can be open-minded and empathetic – while I am rooting for Vancouver, I’m not blind that for Chuck and Cassy and some of our other loyal readers, this is a, uh, how shall a put this, more passionate endeavor. For me, I love the Stanley Cup Play-Offs right now because we are getting to see a […]
