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

-L

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





The Hockey Gods have heard my prayers

16 01 2012

For the last 16 games or so, the Big Guy Upstairs has heard prayers from me along the lines of, “Sweet Baby Jesus, make Jeff Skinner get better. I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

Just as my patience was wearing off, I see this gem of a tweet from the NHL:

Aaaaaaand commence happy dance! It’s always good news to hear that someone is coming off the IR, especially for a concussion, but for some reason it’s a little sweeter when a young player is improving after a concussion. We don’t need and I don’t want another situation like Sidney Crosby or Marc Savard. You can read the press release here.

Whirlwind Kinda Day

28 11 2011

Well. Today has kind of been a whirlwind. S had her first day on the job in DC today which meant turning her phone off for EIGHT HOURS! Fail S, FAIL! So that left me to fend for myself when all hell broke loose. And when I mean hell, I really mean…

1. Bruce Boudreau was fired and replaced by ex-Cap Dale Hunter. [Click here] to watch his ‘Welcome to the team’ Presser.

If we took anything away from 24/7, it was the word 'shitbum'...

Raise your hand (or comment) if you’re surprised about this news! I, for one, am not. I was shocked when it didn’t happen last season during 24/7. Anyway, good luck Dale. Welcome to the big leagues. Lets hope you can get through to those “shitbums” and make them play like we all know they can. And one last thing…

Pants from What’s Up, Ya Sieve? couldn’t have said this any better.

fo' shizzle.

Well said, Pants. Well said.

2. Paul Maurice was fired as head coach of the Canes and replaced by Kirk Muller

Good Luck Kirk.

Check out the Canes site sometime after 5pm for his presser. Lets hope that a coaching change is just what this team needs to be successful. It hurts to see EStaal and Skinner struggle.

If Muller doesn’t work out I’m sure S will ditch school & I would be glad to quit my job to come coach the team ourselves. How hard can it be?! ;)

And in other news.

Kris Letang is still hot. Even with a broken nose. [Click here] to see what he had to say after practice today about his nose, imPACT testing and the possible suspension on Pacioretty.

I'm Sexy and I know it.

I’m crossing my fingers and toes until I hear that he has passed all testing and is cleared to play tomorrow night against the Rangers.

Sidney Crosby was named 1st Star of the Week by the NHL. Surprise. Surprise.

Good choice NHL!

And for all you James Neal fangirls (myself included), hurry on over to twitter!

...nothing good can come of this...

I’ve been pondering all day on what I should tweet in…but like always, the only thing that comes out of my mouth is “………..” nothing. I’m taking suggestions if you have anything clever. So far all I got is, “Will you marry me, @jneal_18 ? #PensQA” …

UPDATE: Well, shucks! I’m late. He already answered the questions. *shrugs* Oh well, just saves me from embarrassing myself.

PHEW! Ok, I think I covered everything for today.





Countdown: 53 Days

14 08 2011

Before we start this, I just want you to know that we had a #54 on the countdown but apparently wordpress’ timer is off. We had set for wordpress to post it for us at 8am yesterday…and apparently that didn’t happen. So, we start off again with #53. – L

 

While deciding which player to feature as number 53 in our countdown to hockey season, L and I were actually in agreement! (It’s so much more fun when we fight… -L)

This #53 tugs at our heart strings.

He’s adorable! A total hockey hottie in training. Take notes Jeff, you have the opportunity to learn from the best. (cough::ERICSTAAL::cough — After seeing Daddy Staal with his son, I may have to strip– haha, *strip*– Craig Adams of his “Hot Daddy” title…. -L) 

Lesson #1 Complete: Looking handsome in a suit.

So, who is excited that there are Jeff Skinner days until the regular season??? I know I am : ) (Oh! Oh! ME ME ME!! Gettin’ close ladies! -L)





Bruins fans rejoice!

5 07 2011

I think I speak for every Bruins fan when I say: HALLELUJAH! TOMAS KABERLE IS GONE!!!!

Ok, that was a little harsh–but face it, he did not mesh well with the Bs. I’m not saying he’s a bad player, he’s just not Boston material. Maybe he’ll have more luck in Carolina where he signed a 3-year, $12.75 contract.

Maybe EStaal can be your new workout buddy...

Good luck Tomas! I honestly hope you have more success next season!





Trip to Pittsburgh: Part Deux

24 06 2011

S & I are like kids in a candy store right now…

which shall we choose?

The NHL just released the 2011-2012 regular season schedule and we’ve already marked up our calendars. Road trip to Pittsburgh numero deux is already in the works for next March. The thought of seeing our Hockey Husbands has us squealing like little girls already. We only have 9 months to go…

Although we can’t decide which game we want to go to…help us decide. We’re thinking it’s between Phoenix and Toronto. We’d love to see Biz ….or Lupul and our Penguin boys. It’d be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone!

No we can't do them all.

Between the two of us, we have a game (if not 4) every month of the season. On my student budget, I am SO going broke this season. -S

Season opener = yes please.

Every Bruins fan in Boston will be trying to get season opener tickets…so the chances of me actually getting tickets are slim to none. I was challenged to a hockey trivia game last night with a friend from work’s boyfriend (yes, if you’re reading this–which I know you do– I’m talking to you). If I win, I apparently get season opener tickets. So let’s just say I’ll be “studying” until our Hockey Trivia Challenge. Bring.It.On. (Oooohh!!! I can quiz you! I am a very good studier. Nerd alert! – S)

And I gotta get to a Habs game. That’s just how it is here in Boston. It’s a must.

 

lucky S--gets the first Pens game

I’m very angry with the NHL. Why does Tampa get a home game against the Hawks and the Bruins dont. *sigh* A Toewsless season = a sad L. Muahahahaha I am so excited for that game. -S

one lonely game.

S needs her Staal fix at least once–if not every other–month. Girl gets 3 brothers to drool over every season and I just get one boy to drool over. Lucky me. I will proudly admit that I am addicted to those brothers. What is in that farm water? -S

S gets her dose of our boys....again.

Another Pens game AND Canes…really S?! Unbelievable. You have a great month of January. Filled with Penguins, Bolts, EStaal, JSkinner, RNash, JCarter, MGreen, and BLaich…good god. I don’t expect to find you alive after all this…

At least I will die one happy woman! Can I just state how excited I am at the prospect of Carter to the Blue Jackets? I don’t know how I will survive with Carter, Nash, and my Bolt boys all so close to me. I HAVE to make that game! -S

FINALLY.

I get some Penguin love. I will reppin’ my Tanger gear at the Garden. Sorry B’s fans. I also get to see Mr. Underwood. How awesome is that? Think Carrie will make an appearance?? …I suppose not, but one can dream.

what a way to end the season...

Just when I’ll be going through my Letang withdrawls, I’ll be able to see the B’s play the Pens one last time for the season…

Unless the dreadful happens and they end up playing in the playoffs. I have no idea how S made it through this season. Brave soul.

Well, our schedules are absolutely packed next season. Whether our bank accounts allow all this fun is another story entirely…

Looking forward to having you all with us to see how this season’s journey unfolds! -S
