Extended Vacation

16 09 2012

Welp. Not much to say about this. I tried to ignore the fact that it could happen …. and that didn’t work.

However, the boys were nice enough to put together a little message for all the fans.

Lets just hope the season still starts on time.

Political Correctness

27 07 2012

Well, in the wake of all things internship and real-life related (I know, it makes me sad too), I seem to have missed yet another moment of Timmy Thomas glory.

Let’s all think back to a time when hockey never got political.  Then Tim Thomas decided to voice his opinions.

Oh, Timmy Timmy Timmy…why?  First refusing to visit the White House, now posting on your facebook page about Chik-Fil-A?  Not only do I think this is a bonehead move for hockey reasons, but I hope he realizes that he played hockey in and won a Stanley Cup for the exact city that started the trend of expelling the restaurant chain from opening in the city.  Oops?

What do you guys think?  Let us know in the comments!

And a Swift Kick to the Cohones Goes to…..

24 05 2012

Wow, CBC.  For once I’m not pissed off about something that Mike Milbury has said (although every time homeboy opens his mouth, the world gets a little sadder).  No, I’m pissed about a program on your network, called “While the Men Watch”.  Are you serious?!

In all seriousness though, this is a very sexist program.  It’s 2012 for crying out loud, and I’ll have you know that I, personally, know quite a bit more about hockey than many of my male friends.  L and S wouldn’t have started this wonderful blog if they knew absolutely diddly-squat about hockey.

Some people might be like, “Oh, you’re just getting worked up about nothing; it’s a little program.”  But try being like me, attempting to break into the world of sports for a career, and being looked at during interviews by men who have only one thought running through their head:  “She’s got boobs…..not qualified.”  Women in sports have to work twice as hard to prove they’re not some bimbo who wants to do this job so that she can get closer to the athletes.  Some of us, myself included, want to work in sports because we love the game.  It’s not just a man’s world anymore, so all you jocks better get used to it.  And with that, all I have to say is:

How do you feel about this wonderful display of equality from CBC?  Feel free to read this article from Yahoo Sports about the announcement: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/cbc-announces-while-men-watch-hockey-night-sets-213110241.html

Sweet Baby Jesus…

16 04 2012

I was planning on waiting until the end of the first round to give my thoughts on who came out on top, but considering the way a few series have been going, all I have to say is this:

For the Vancouver/LA series:

For Pens/Flyers:

In the name of all that is good and holy, what the FRICK is going on?!

 

What do you guys think about these series?  Let us know!

What the crap?!

12 01 2012

So the “office party” that S & I were going to throw for our new writers has been put on hold. Why you ask? Well…to put it simply…ALIENS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE NHL!!

I mean, what other explanation is there for this CRAP of an ASG roster?!

Dustin Byfuglien? REALLY?! ::Pull yourself together, L.  Pull it together.::

::deep breath:: I understand why Sid didn’t make the cut. The guy has barely played any games this season. But what about my other boys. ::pouts::

Have we forgot about this face?!

Future Norris Winner. I swear.

Tanger went down this season with a broken nose & concussion BUT he’s on the mend. And before all that, he’s was at the top of all defensemen. So, fine. My man isn’t an All Star this year. I’ll let it slide. Ok, maybe I wont. But onto my next complaint.

But THIS. This I will NOT let slide.

BEST. SEASON. OF. HIS. CAREER.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS. It’s a joke, right? You guys are all in on this prank? I just know it. Because there is NO WAY you can’t call this man an All Star. I am not going to waste precious blog space rambling on about his stats from this season. If you feel like battling my argument…look yourself. He’s an All Star.

You hear me, James??! You are an All Star. We love you no matter what those poo-poo heads say!

Don’t even get me started on JStaal…or EStaal…or Skinner…or Mikey. ::Simmer down now, L. Simmer down.::

How is it that Geno is the only Penguin?!

well said.

Anyway, I guess I should give a shout out and a congrats to my boys who DID make the cut. Toews, Kane, Lundqvist, Baby Segs, Chara, Timmy T, Lupul, Giroux, Stammer-Time….and hell…I’ll even congratulate Ovie.

I’ll be tuning into the All Star weekend from Boston DECKED out in my Pens gear because they are All Stars to US!

Excuse me, I am going to go cry in a corner with S now.





Tomorrow.

4 12 2011

*sigh*

Tomorrow my Bruins play my Penguins @ Pittsburgh.

hide me.

I’m not sure I can stand to watch.

I can’t NOT cheer on my Penguins….but I also can’t NOT cheer on my Bruins, in fear that I’ll be ejected from my city. So….what’s a girl to do? Especially when the standings look like this. (PITTSBURGH, PITTSBURGH! Come on chica, it’s not even a question. -S)

Maybe I’ll just have S update me now and then?? Maybe I will just wake up Tuesday morning and check to see the score??

…Maybe I’ll give in and watch it??

I’m praying for a quick, down & dirty, painless game. No Overtime. No Shoot Outs. No Fights. No injuries. Just plain old hockey.

Think you can manage that boys?! For me??

If not…S may need to talk me off the ledge of my apartment building.

God. Bless. Me.





Way to go, Toews!

13 09 2011

Thanks to Gongshow Gear for tweeting this.

I think he should receive 2 minutes in the sin bin for this one…

Way to go, man. Way to go. This kid will remember that for the rest of his life. On the flip side, you can knock me over anytime you want…I’ll just bring you down on top of with me.





I’m going to ruin yet another song for you guys…

19 08 2011

S is probably laughing to herself right now because I told her this last weekend and I think she thinks I’m insane — which is no different than any normal day.

But Maroon 5’s new song Moves Like Jagger is totally messing with my head. I’m totally singing the lyrics wrong….and I promise it’s not on purpose.

Instead of thinking of/singing about this guy:

Jagger

The words come out as this guy instead:

I got those moves like Jagr, the moves like Jagr...

I seriously think I need mental help. Or maybe more sleep…who knows. All I know is that I probably just ruined this song for everyone. I apologize.

Anyway, have fun singing about Jagr now…I’m telling you…it’s going to stick. Excuse me while I go listen to this for 8 hours today trying to sing it right…





Trivia Tuesday: We’re not feelin’ it.

16 08 2011

We’re sorry, we’re just not in the mood. After we discovered a few pictures and heard a few rumors, our blogging moods are non-existent. We’ve both been writing each other late night frantic emails, depressing texts & pretty much on the verge of tears–we’re not kidding. We’ll keep the rumors & pictures quiet because we promised each other before we started this blog that we wouldn’t be those girls who hang on every word or picture on the internet. So we decided to vent our problems to you folks in a different way.

When we checked our Tumblr’s, Twitter’s, Facebook’s and every other social networking platform we use for this blog, we just wanted to crawl in a hole and not come out.

This has been S & I lately…

angry.

First me, now S. What’s next?!

But we’re not just angry…

we're depressed.

Our hearts can’t take much more of this. It’s unhealthy.

We just want to…

why? just why?

What did we do to deserve this kind of news? We’ve been nothing but supportive.

We’re not even sure the thought of the start of the season could cheer us up right now. Our hearts are just shattered into itty-bitty-tiny-little pieces. Super glue wouldn’t even be able to put it back together. Boys always find a way of ruining our lives. And like the stupid girls we are, we still flock back to them. But like always, S & I will stick together–holding each other up every step of the way.

you gotta get through me first.





Ok, don’t panic.

15 05 2011

I’ve been staring at a blinking cursor for about an hour now. There’s not much I can say except:

Ugh.

Where’d my Big Bad Bruins go?!

But don’t worry Bruins fans. I’d like to think Tampa just woke up a sleeping bear…
