Are they trying to kill me?

8 08 2011

As I am driving through the rainy, swamp that is North Florida today, I get a frantic text from L. The Pittsburgh Penguins posted an interview and video updating us on none other than Jordan Staal’s summer.

I am in a tizzy thinking about how soon I can run home to get to my laptop. I mean come on, I have to see what my Hockey Husband has been up to this summer. And who doesn’t want to see this ….ummmm face?

Why hello there!

So head over to the penguins website to check out the feature. Nothing is better than some Staal Love. I surely was NOT disappointed.

You know you want to click on my link ; )

From us, to you!

30 07 2011

Give us a night off + any form of alcohol + Tumblr + Youtube–and you get a little something like this…..

(***The girls at Hockey’s Finest are not responsible for any drooling, hyperventilating or fainting that may occur as a result of this video. Cue the fan girl squeals in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…-S)





Ok, lets try something…

22 07 2011

I’d really like to see if we can go at least ONE day without, the man himself, Sidney Crosby making his way into our “most searched terms” list…

every single day...

Think we can do it?? Let’s try it.

But since you all asked…we’ll be happy to help you out…

Sorry girls, I can't help that I'm so awesome. People just like me too much...

And just to make sure you go away extra happy…

Look! Look over there! They keep searching for me, dude! That's incredible!

Also, on another note…

S & I fail. Like epic fail.

Assuming this is a reliable source…

...which it's probably not...

…that would mean S & I are about a week too late. It would be just our luck if he was in Toronto right now. We were only LOOKING for something awesome to happen last weekend–which totally means nothing was going to happen.

First, a week after we were in Pittsburgh, Sid came back out to practice. Now…a week after we were in Toronto, he may or may not be there right now. *face palm* Life isn’t fair.

we'll just go hide in a corner & hang our heads in shame...

Next time, Sid. Next time…

Oh, and I can’t forget this one:

I think I giggled like a little girl for 10 minutes…

"I just want to touch it."





Why we love hockey players…

20 06 2011

I know for a fact S will LOVE this post. This blog has been dominated by the Bruins so I needed to make my best friend smile (and myself) by posting her favorite boys (and mine).

So. Why do we love hockey players?! Well…here’s our reasoning.

For some reason, hockey players + animals receive the same reaction as hockey players + little kids…you just melt.

PS – I’d give anything to be that cat under Tanger’s hand (2:45 into the vid). ME-OW! He can scratch my head any day…I’ll be just as content & cuddly. And he can take me  home any time…

How about their artist abilities. You don’t see football, baseball, or basketball players sitting down at a table and painting. Although, I must admit…I’ve never actually looked to see if they have. So I could totally be lying…

Cookie, Tanger, Dupper, and Max may have a future in the world of an artist if all fails as a hockey player…

You gotta love the pranks they play on each other. Poor Biz, that guy is hilarious…

Anyone wonder if Biz retaliated?? I’d like to know what happened after the game…

I didn’t post this next video because it’s my favorite boy (and husband)…I posted it because it’s actually my favorite hockey fight I’ve seen yet. Ok…so maybe I am a little biased. But I’m sure you all won’t complain. My favorite thing about hockey players is their toughness on the ice.

…excuse me while I go recover from the heart attack I just had…

And dontcha love how persuasive they can be…

I have never given blood, and I don’t really plan to. But if JStaal stood in front of me and asked just as nicely (and sexy—sorry S) as this…I’d so it.

And no other athlete has a hockey player’s body. Not quite sure how they get the body they do, but I’d like a written work out plan for anyone I start dating (does that sound shallow?? –yeah, it probably does…my apologies).

So, tell me…why do YOU love hockey players??





Today in NHL History: Penguins Stanley Cup 2009

12 06 2011

As you all already know, S & I are huge Pens fans…so how could we not celebrate today?? The Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup. Pretty sure this was the season our “forbidden” love affair occurred.

For your viewing pleasure:

We could watch these videos all day long. I get goosebumps every time! This day is burned into their memory as much as it is ours. I’m speaking for S when I say this, but she won’t argue, we hope to see this again sometime in REAL soon. (cough::next season::cough)

Mr. How's My Hair?!

JStaal and his amish days...

Sid the Kid

Our Lover Boy!

We love our boys and we’re so proud of them (even with the early exit this season). Mr. 71 and Mr. 87 are resting up and getting ready for the new season. JStaal and Mr. How’s My Hair should be back to training in the near future and hopefully we’ll find out if Max is returning for next season sometime soon. After this past season, S & I have no doubt that we’ll be cheering the Pens on deep into the 2011-2012 Playoffs. This team is going to come back hungry. Watch out!

How appropriate is it that we post this today since tomorrow a new Stanley Cup Champion could be named. Lord Stanley is on his way to Beantown incase Vancouver wins Game 6. I can only hope (and pray) that the Bruins can pull off a win tomorrow night and send this series into a Game 7. I’d love to party with the Cup this weekend. So B’s: win tomorrow, win wednesday, and I’ll see you on the streets of Boston this weekend!





Watch out, Tampa!

10 06 2011

–or should I say watch out, Stamkos??

S is getting ready to pick her internship locations–Tampa is obviously on her list. She says something about a great place to intern blah blah blah, but I’m calling her bluff. She wants to move to Tampa for the same reason why we want to move to Pittsburgh (Crosby/Letang/Staal/Talbot) or Toronto (Lupul) or Vancouver (Kesler) or Nashville (Mr.Underwood) or Washington (Laich/Green) or–well–you get the idea…

After watching this video and doing some research…I think S knows just which neighborhoods to look into when it comes time for apartment hunting.

So Stammer, if you find an SUV slowly driving past your house every night…don’t be alarmed. Don’t call the cops. Go outside and say hi. Maybe buy her a dinner…or maybe a movie night?? Or maybe let her use the second sink in the bathroom?? ;)

Anyway, I’m counting down the seconds before I get a bbm from S saying how much she hates me for posting this. It’s times like these I thank the lord for the 1,000+ miles that stand between us because then I can get away with it ;)

Love you girl…just needed to make you smile today





Once again–S found the good stuff…

2 06 2011

S is just a magnet for awesome videos and pictures…I swear.

Whoever thought of this ‘history will be made’ parody, is brilliant.

What if the Bash Brothers never bashed??
