Why we *want* to play.

5 09 2012

Leave it to Gongshow Hockey to create another beauty of a video. This time they focused all of their efforts on the outdoor or pond hockey aspect of the game. They organized a coast to coast Canada trip to have a little fun and capture why so many people love to play the game. I for one, would have liked to receive an invite for this trip. Oh well, maybe next time. So without further ado, here is the latest creation from the brilliant minds of Gongshow Hockey…

I don’t know about you, but this makes me want to venture up to Canada and brave the coldest of the cold to lace up some skates! Hope you enjoy the video as much as L and I did!

Free Agent Frenzy

1 07 2012

S  here, blogging from the Windy City of Chicago.

Today is not only Canada Day, but the beginning of Free Agent Frenzy in the NHL. While L is chilling on the lake, I have been blowing up her phone with the latest updates. Oh, and in case you were wondering…we are both rocking our Gongshow Gear “Free Agent” buckets!

I am posted up on my computer watching NHL.com and scanning the Twitter feeds. Parise watch is becoming a little too Lebron James esque, so until that is settled I will update you on some other highs and lows:

  • Colby Armstrong waived by Leafs and picked up for one year by Montreal.
  • Zenon Konopka to Minnesota Wild…L and I like this move.
  • Steve MacIntyre resigned by the Penguins for 2 years.
  • Aaron Asham takes a deal from the Rangers, and I cry myself to sleep tonight.
  • And my personal favorite so far…Tanner Glass signs with the Penguins.

Tall and strong.

So without further ado, the girls at Hockey’s Finest send a big welcome to Mr. Glass for joining our favorite hockey club. You are officially on our radar, and we can’t say that we mind it. You are quite the looker Mr. Glass…

He’s smart too! Look momma, a Dartmouth grad!

I will try and keep you all updated as more free agency news comes in! -S





No Silver Cup

25 04 2012

Thanks to S (and Gongshow Gear) this beauty of a video invaded my newsfeed on Facebook.

Chad Brownlee, a Canadian Country music singer — who used to play hockey (Vancouver Draft pick), wrote this song about his beloved Canucks. Yes, I know … our most loyal outspoken readers hate the Canucks but trust me ladies & gents. This is worth the listen.

Even if you don’t like the song just take a few minutes to admire him because he’s truly a beautiful man. And his voice…is just… ::sigh::

He models the song after Red Solo Cup by Toby Keith. Hence why the title is No Silver Cup.

Note: He’s wearing a GSH sweater & bucket!! The same bucket S & I rock on a weekly basis! Which says “Free Agent” — ladies, take note.

You know he’s a good man when he watches/plays hockey. You know he’s a COMPLETE winner when he rocks GSH swag. He’s gonna make a lady verrrrrryyyyyy happy one day.

Hey Chad,

We’re Free Agents too!

xoxo

Wheel. Snipe. Party.
