S, this is for you…

11 07 2012

…because I love you. And you should love me for it. :)

From yesterday’s Alumni game in Thunder Bay:

2 Staal’s on one bench! GASP!

Hey — I wonder how many “too many Staal’s on ice” penalties we will have next season. I have to admit…I would giggle for a little bit.

He may be married…but he’s still hot.

S, I love you. Once I find the link to the interview he did today — I’ll be sure to stop your heart with that too :) Since your family is with you this week, I dont mind causing bodily harm. They’ll rush you to the hospital in time.

XOXOXO

PS — when I was tagging this post, I totally typed in Pittsburgh Penguins until I realized he’s no longer with the Pens. That kinda hurt a bit…I wont lie… *sniff sniff*

UPDATE: I dont know who you are– but you’re brilliant:

*sings* S-T-A-A-L

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…





Oh Hai, Pretti Boi…

2 07 2012

Ummm…

…I’m drooling. All over my computer.

I just spent the entire weekend by the water and saw NOTHING like this. N.O.T.H.I.N.G.

Life is just not fair.

Tyler. Freakin. Seguin.

I do have to say — compared to his friends…he looks like a vampire. Someone please get this boy some tanning oil.

**GOD BLESS THE OFF SEASON**





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





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!

#ThingsTheNHLDraftTeachesUs

21 06 2012

Take a look at this for a second, ladies:

The Top Prospects of 2012

Does anyone else see the problem with this? S & I do.

Problem: THEY. ARE. BABIES. 

There aren’t many times when I feel old…but these boys look 18 years old max. With all our favorites becoming daddy’s and getting married…S & I were looking forward to the Draft. One word: Potential.

Unfortunately, we forgot that we are no longer 18 and that we are in fact almost pushing cougar status. So while these babies’ dreams are coming true this weekend, I’ll be sticking my head in a tub of ice cream to drown my sorrows.

Anyway, enjoy the Steel City boys! We’re quite jealous. May each one of you have the BEST time of your life. And hopefully, we’ll see one of you as Rookie of the Year at next year’s NHL Awards.

Pittsburgh, we miss you.

Happy Father’s Day!

17 06 2012

Happy Father’s Day to all the hockey playing dads out there!  Here’s a little gem from one of our favorites here at HF sharing the day’s festivities with everyone:

Such a standard Biz tweet.  Keep an eye out for more gems this summer, he’s one of the good ones.
