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.

Yup. Another glorious video.

I love my life…

What is it about players taping up the sticks for the game? It’s instant drool.

Happy Hump Day, all!

New Wallpaper for You.

11 07 2012

ESPN. Us hockey fans love to hate you. But it’s a time like RIGHT NOW that we absolutely frickin’ love you. Like — want to take you out to dinner, buy you the most expensive entree, the most expensive bottle of wine, and then take you back to our places for dessert — kind of love.

As if we needed more proof that he was a hottie.

Way too deliver yet again, ESPN. Keep the hockey players in the mix. We like.

Maybe some Max Talbot, Jonathan Toews, Kris Letang, Zach Parise, Chris Higgins in the future? Just throwin’ that out there.

Now, for your off season dose of hockey porn. Ladies, this picture comes with VIDEO!!!

Holy moly. I’m going to go take a cold shower now. Magic Mike last week and now a naked Brad Richards…my body can’t take much more of this torture.

Enjoy ;) We know  we will!

Why is this so funny to me?

9 07 2012

I can’t for the life of me figure out why I find this so funny.

I blame the sun. Today, I fell asleep on a float in the pool today and am now a lobster. Delirious.

But maybe you can share my amusement…

Sick moves, boys…

Now if only Tanger and his hair were involved in this gem. Life would be complete.

Happy Sunday…

PS — I’m going to go bathe in aloe now…





Hilarity…Twitter Style

29 06 2012

I’m such a huge fan of Twitter, not only because it allows me to waste time when I should be productive, but it also gives us insight into some wonderful hockey players and their personalities.  They interact with each other, outside of their teammates, and give the fans something to laugh at.

Some of my personal favorites are (obviously) Paul Bissonnette, who tweets out little gems like this one:

A little gross?  Maybe, but that’s Biz for you.  He’s got an awesome personality for hockey, and I personally love it!

Another guy is lesser known, except to people who root for the Blackhawks.  Jimmy Hayes (formerly of Boston College), along with Andrew Shaw, was one rookie that really stepped up this season when the BHawks needed him the most.  Now that the season is over, he has become a frequent tweeter.  He has a quieter disposition in the locker room, but even the Blackhawks Organization noticed that his tweets were worthy of a whole story on their website.  So check it out!

Who are your favorite tweeters?  Let us know, and hopefully later in the week we’ll have a Top 5 Tweeters post for ya!

Party Rock Is In The HOUSEEEE TONIGHT

Here’s just another example of two things I love coming together:  ice hockey and Jimmy Kimmel.  You’re welcome.

Stop making me NOT hate you.

30 04 2012

Seriously, I’m one belly laugh away from jumping on the Scott Hartnell Bandwagon and laughing off into the sunset with everyone else. S has been a member (and quite possibly the leader of this group) for quite some time now and I think she’s secretly trying to bring me over to the dark side with her. The dark side is always more fun, no? And the dark side has Max Talbot in it…

Hmm…

*stops*

*thinks*

To the dark side I go!

Not sure when this video came out — but S sent me a link FULL of goodies for the off season that we be sharing periodically to keep you all satisfied. Anyway, I’m not going to lie — this video confused me the first time around. Then I realized the guys were just ragging on each other the entire time. You get to watch Hartnell stuff his face with a Meatball Sub while at Boston University (WOOHOO!). Other appearances made by: Talbot, Giroux, Jagr and a few others.

The more and more I see from this team– the LESS I hate them. They just seem so fun. The kind of guys I’d like to go grab a beer with. Keep it up Flyers! You’re turning us into fans over here…

Click [ here ] and enjoy :)

Scott -- can we have some?? Sharing is caring.

Flyers lead the Devils 1-0! Good job boys! 3 to go!

Who Is That Again??

19 04 2012

Dear loyal readers of Hockey’s Finest,

After reading a comment from one reader earlier today, I realized that sometimes we writers (me in particular) sometimes don’t explain things fully.  We get a little keyboard/wordpress happy and just start typing out things that make sense to us, but not at all so that you hockey lovers out there understand our shorthand for the boys.  So here it is, my list of current nicknames, but don’t worry,  your favorite may end up on here soon enough!


Captain Sexpanther:  Jonathan Toews

I know no one will argue with me on this, but I mean DAMN.  What other nickname would suffice?  None, that’s what.  All I have to say is every time I think of him, I have a flashback to “10 Things I Hate About You” when Julia Stiles says “I want you.  I need you.  Oh baby, oh baby”….but I’m completely serious when I say that about Toews.

McDreamy:  Patrick Sharp

He’s the Patrick Dempsey of the hockey world.  That flow is ridiculous.  And look at how cute his puppy is!  M loves :) Other possible nicknames?  DILF.  You know you agree.

Lil’ Peek-A-Boo:  Patrick Kane

You know when you pay games with little kids and they always seem to have that mischievous grin on their faces like they just did something wrong?  Ladies and gentlemen, that is Patrick Kane to the T.  He’s always up to no good, but damn does that smirk of his make you weak in the knees.

Nugget:  Martin St. Louis

Look how tiny he is!  I call everyone that is below 5’4″ “nuggets”, since I’m 5’8″ and seem to tower over them.  Even though St. Louis is nowhere near 5’4″ (he’s listed as 5’8″), he looks like a 12 year old boy who got lost on his way home from school in terms of height.  He’s a fun-sized hockey player, but demands the respect of a man the size of Zdeno Chara.  Love this lil’ nugget.

Beauty:  Kris Versteeg

Ah, Monsieur Versteeg.  Je t’aime.  *fangirl* Anyway, there’s more to Versteeg than meets the eye.  He’s one of the characters that everyone wants in the locker room.  If you don’t believe me, look back to a post I did a few weeks ago on him and see some of his personality.  You’ll fall in love.  But watch out, he’s mine :)

The Wonder Twins:  Daniel and Henrik Sedin

During my sister’s freshman year of college (she went to Boston University, whaddup), she lived down the hall from two guys that we liked to call “The Wonder Twins”.  These kids had known each other since elementary school, and were now living together, and still do live together, in college.  They were attached at the hip and the closet (they frequented Ed Hardy……ew).  Same with the Sedins, except for the whole actually being twins thing.  They know what the other is doing at all times, and I’m still baffled that Vancouver somehow landed both of them.  Other possible nicknames:  TweedleDee and TweedleDum.

Santa and Buddy the Elf:  Brandon Dubinsky and Brian Boyle

Ever since NHL 24/7:  Flyers vs. Rangers, I’ve been obsessed with Brian Boyle.  I already had the obsession with Brandon Dubinsky.  When they showed the Rangers’ Christmas party, I fangirled my jersey off.  When Boyle shouted, “SANTA!  I KNOW HIM!” at Dubinsky, I fangirled my face off.  Yeah.  My whole face.

That’s all the nicknames for now, but I’m sure there’ll be a few more in the future.  Do you have any nicknames for your favorite players?  Let us know in the comments!

Special Requests…

11 03 2012

Last night I received a not-so-happy text from my cousin. She “nicely” complained that it had been a while since I posted something good. (Apparently the Kane photobomb and Crosby Watch post from last week don’t count) SHEESH! Tough crowd.

Then, it hit me. I knew what she wanted.

He’s young — the definition of Jailbait

Likes his Grey Goose — when in Canada where he can drink, of course ;)

And he just recently won the Stanley cup

Any guesses? I’ll give you 3 …. and the 1st 2 don’t count.

Then while I running errands yesterday — a song came on my radio.

While I immediately text S saying this should be our “husbands” anthem (by replacing all the “girls” with “boy” — and removing the pole references). Think about it for a second. Let it marinate. We all have our Hockey Hubby’s. We all think they look sexy sans shirts. So therefore, I think it’s a perfect match.

After S agreed with me, I began thinking of the boy above. And his celebrations this summer. Which then led me to think that the above song is not for our husbands. It’s for Tyler. Because if you remember correctly, all he did was Strip.

Exhibit A:

Annnnnnd Exhibit B:

So, now that I’m pretty sure my cousin is passed out on the floor somewhere…I can say I’ve fulfilled my promise to her when I said I’d “post some special” today.

There you go. Tyler has his own song now. You’re welcome.

PS– the amount of random stuff that goes through my mind in any given day is scary.
