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!

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.
