Lockout Bordem

11 10 2012

Ok ok … I know. Awful blogger award goes to us here at Hockey’s Finest. We’ve neglected you all in your time of need. But really, we’ve all been so depressed that we’ve just had nothing to say…

…until now.

“Vacation” is over and it’s because of this:

So apparently, Columbus is the place to be…

Stinger, the CBJ mascot, must be super bored because he gathered all of his friends and created this beauty of a video. If this doesn’t put a smile on your sad, depressed, little hockey-deprived faces I don’t know what will. Hell, I think we should keep an eye out … maybe it will catch onto some of the other teams… or players. Now that would be something I’d be willing to see.

Keep an eye out, friends! If you find anything, let us know!

Until then, tonight is “opening night” … and there is still no hockey. But I have a solution that will help (or at least I know it will help S & I) Everyone: grab your alcohol, your re-runs of HBO’s Pens/Caps & Flyers/Rangers, and sit back. No one says we have to spend this lockout in depression. We can at least make it tolerable for ourselves.

Bringing this back:

Happy Thursday, kiddies. Keep a smile on your face. We’ll make it through the drought together.

xoxo,

*L

PS – if you’re still bored tonight even after the alcohol and re-runs… download Gongshow’s Saucer King app! I’m on Level 4 and DETERMINED to be an “All Star” by the time this lockout is over.





#MissedOpportunity

1 05 2012

Have you ever surfed Craigs List’s Missed Connections section — just for the hell of it?

Well — if I wasn’t one of those people who laughs hysterically for hours going through them…I probably would have posted this.

Let me set the setting of this story first…

There I was just sitting at work…doing nothing…and then the phone rings.

::ring ring:: ::ring ring::

Me: *thinks* Hmm…that’s a weird number. *answers* Hello?

Sexy Deep Male Voice: Uhh…hi! Is this the Columbus Blue Jackets?

Me: ….Uhhh… no?

Sexy Deep Male Voice: Oh…umm…sorry. ::end call::

Me: …………………………….. *thinks* Dammit, I should have said YES!

Rick Nash, was that you? Pranking me because you know my day was heading down the “this sucks” road?!

She hung up on me!

So — the question is… I still have the number….Do I call back? He sounded pretty sexy. And he could have been someone important!

Instead of a Missed Connection … I consider this a Missed Opportunity.

So, if you’re the guy who called me…CALL BACK! Let’s talk hockey! ;)

Hockey Fights Cancer

30 10 2011

This is a topic that always hits home for both S & I–so when I saw this, I couldn’t help but ‘aww’ and let a few tears slip out.

13 year old Lawson Frank is battling a rare cancer & was asked to be apart of the ceremonial ‘Hockey Fights Cancer’ puck drop on Saturday night. Chicago Blackhawks v. Columbus Blue Jackets. I just want to run up and kiss every Blackhawk I see for taking the time to do this. They probably have no idea how much this meant to this little boy. It’ll most definitely be something he will remember for the rest of his life.

If my heart swells any more-- it'll explode.

This video just kills me. Click here to watch.

Take a guess as to who's stick he's holding...

Hint: Jonathan Toews is his role model…





To make S feel better…

26 09 2011

So S is deathly ill.

Well, not really…but…she is really sick. So like any best friend, I want to do something that will make her feel better. :) You’re welcome, chica…. (in advance)

Enter: Rick Nash. Tumblr people are AWESOME.

She has a thing for hockey players....and boats.....and farms....

Still not feeling better, S??? Well….maybe this next one will help a little more….

Whoever filmed this should get LOTS & LOTS & LOTS of money. That camera angle is just…..uhhh…wait, nothing good will come of me saying what I think of it.

Well, I’m 1,000,000% positive that this little .gif will make S feel MUCH better. Hell, I’m not even sick & I’m feeling much better. ;) Love you girl!





Countdown: 61 days

6 08 2011

Back to the countdown Ladies & Gents. Like we said before…most days we have someone, others we don’t.

Today there is RICK NASH days left until puck drop. Time to make S drool all over her keyboard. Ready. Set. GO! (ASKDjhlussfAKJAJSFpfffffffffffffffffff- S)

Pretty sure she has January 24th bold, highlighted, *starred* with little <3 hearts <3 all around. After all, R.Nash will be making an appearance at the St. Pete Times Forum… (Too bad it’s a Tuesday or I’d just have to book a room at a certain hotel and hang out in the lobby ; ) -S)

Send a smile towards S' general direction, please!

S has already told me which dates she cannot wait for–and this is one of them. Lets hope her starving college student budget will not stop her hockey ticket fund from growing. Donations will gladly be accepted.

Not quite sure what it is that makes her swoon like so, but I don’t ask questions. I just nod my head & then spam her inbox with pictures of her favorite boys. So, this one is for you S…ENJOY! Love, L. (You da best! -S)





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…..

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
