HELL YEAH! Hockey is back in Winnipeg!

9 10 2011

Am I the only one who is SUPER excited that hockey is back in Winnipeg? I mean, seriously…listen to this crowd! If that isn’t a hyped crowd, I dont know what is.

Go Jets Go!

I’m a little late. The puck dropped at 5pm & right now the Jets are down by 4 with 6:21 left in the 3rd…but I figured I’d wait until all the awesome coverage was released to share it with all of you. I’m secretly hoping that this boosts their spirits & gives them some good luck.

They did a heartbreaking tribute for Rick Rypien. Seriously, don’t watch the video unless you have a box of tissues sitting next to you and you’re in the mood to weep like a baby because I’m still wiping my eyes and sniffling. RIP Rick. [click here]

Poor Mommy Rypien... </3 still breaks my heart

If you decided to be brave and watch the tribute, maybe singing along to Oh Canada will cheer you up. [click here]

Ooohhhh Caaaannnaaadddaaaaa

This next video gave me chills. The Winnipeg Video department gets a round of high-fives from me. But I guess if you weren’t obsessed with fighter jets — like S & I are — then it won’t really mean much to you. [click here]

Fighter Jets + L = drool fest

Anyway, congrats to the Winnipeg Jets on their season opener. I can’t wait to cheer you on & possibly get some Jets gear…just because.





Rembering Derek Boogaard

14 05 2011

It’s always sad when you find out someone dies at such a young age. Today, New York Rangers left winger Derek Boogaard (28) was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment. Hockey’s Finest would like to extend our deepest condolences to Boogaard’s family, friends, and teammates during this tough time. Tonight, no matter who “your team” is, we all will mourn this young man’s death together. I can only hope that at tomorrow’s Game #1 of the Eastern Conf Finals they will take a moment of silence in his honor.

:(

RIP Derek, you will be missed.
