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.



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…

Umm. Yeah.

I have nothing to say. My jaw is on the ground.

Just watch and see for yourself.


Sweet Cherry Pie

4 04 2012

Last night at the Gahhhhden:

Pens + Bruins = death of L

Thanks to my AMAZINGLY AWESOME cousin, we had 2 tickets to the game. 5th row (maybe 6th row). And I got to witness my boys win 5-3. I’m now 2-0 when it comes to going to Pens games…..not that I’m saying I’m their good luck charm or anything….. ;)

Few things to recap

1. Tanger and Flower flirted with each other the entire night. Laughing like little girls and whispering things in each others ears while sitting on the bench. I’d like to think they were talking about me…but I’d be lying. It was probably along the lines of “Wanna braid each other’s hair later and watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s?!”

2. Sidney Crosby scored a goal (make that 2).

duuuuuhhh. when does that NOT happen?!

And instantly I get a text from S talking about how I’m no longer  a Crosby Goal Virgin …. nice S, real nice. (She’s so right though– I had never seen Crosby score in person. It was as glorious as I imagined it would be. Suck it, Crosby haters.)

3. James Neal + Andrew Ference = FIGHTTTTTT!

Once again, S sent me a text. “Did you just get pregnant? Because I think I did…” I basically had front row seats to one of the BEST things I’ve ever seen at ANY hockey game. James Neal. Fighting. Right in front of me. *swoon* And if I wasn’t busy drooling, I would have grabbed video. But I was trying to restrain myself from jumping over the glass and bashing Ference’s face in for picking on my boy.

The Real Deal.

The entire game James just got under every B’s players’ skin. You know how he’s the ” little brother we all love” to the Pens? Well, he’s the “little pain in the a$$ that we all hate” to the Bruins.

4. Joe Vitale took a puck to the face. And to make matters worse — it came from Zdeno Chara…which ends well for NO ONE. But, like the amazing man he is, Big Z was the first to the scene of the accident making sure Joey was alright.

5. Johnny Boychuk had a knee on knee collison with Arron Asham and went down faster than a sinking ship. He had to be carried off the ice by his players. Poor guy. But it leaves me with this question: “Does Asham have a knee made of steel?”


Good luck, Johnny. Hope it’s nothing too serious. To make Bruins fans feel better — I hear he walked out of the arena without crutches last night. One can hope that’s a good sign.

Anyway, few other small things. I feel the need to defend the 2 people I heard getting bashed the most last night (besides Crosby).

6. Jordan Staal is hated in Boston. Or maybe it was just my section of people. Thankfully, S wasn’t around. If she was, the bail money she set aside for me would have been used on her instead. An old woman behind me said “Someone just needs to end him for the night.” UMM — HOW RUDE!

7. Also, no one likes Kris Letang either. Look, just because he’s an AWESOME actor and can fake an injury to get a penalty called — doesn’t mean he’s the worst player in the league. That only just means the Ref’s are suckers.

Welp, that’s my 2 minute break down of the madness that occurred last night. I can’t wait till next October until S & I are reunited in the ‘Burgh for a couple games.


Skates & Plates 2012

25 02 2012


This happened the other night. One of my favorite events that the Penguins Organization puts on every season. Skates & Plates. Where the boys trade in their skates for a night and wine & dine their most loyal fans.

I’d like to think our invitations were lost in the mail…

JStaal. I don’t know where to begin. Either cut your hair or wear a hat. This awkward length is doing nothing for me. I would say what I think you look like but…that would put me in the dog house with my best friend. So instead, I’ll just say that you look like a little boy. (Cue angry text from S in 3…..2……1…..)

Nealer. Oh Nealer. I can’t wait to watch the next episode of NHL36. 36 hours of you is like 36 hours of heaven. I’m so love sick it’s pathetic.


How handsome are these boys in their tuxes?! I mean, really?! Could you all be anymore perfect? Red definitely works for all of you. I approve.

They could serve me wine all day long and I would be the happiest girl in the world.

Oh and this also happened. I’m not quite sure how to react…

Tanger with a ponytail…hmmm…

Beard…I can dig it. The ponytail…meh…I could do without.

Just let it flow, babe. Just let it flow.



How to be a Perfect Dad.

Exhibit A:

Eric Staal (and Brothers) take Parker Staal skating for the first time. (A picture surfaced a few months back…but I just noticed the video. Sorry all!) I love Parker so much, I think it’s time we give him his own tag.


Died and gone to heaven…

10 02 2012

Bauer Hockey just posted a video tour of JORDAN STAAL’S house…aka my dream house.

They must know that I just found a stray dog and named him GRONK. Or maybe it’s in honor of him making his TRIUMPHANT return tomorrow vs the Jets. Take your pick,I don’t care. All that matters is, HE’S BACK!!!


Staal Brother Slumber Party, anyone?

14 01 2012

Someone must have showed S how to use Photoshop.

Stumbled upon this beauty on Tumblr and I gotta say…it has S written ALL over it.

where's my invite?

Can you imagine? A pillow fight?

With these boys?


See for yourself (for your early morning viewing pleasure…)




What’s that sound??

26 11 2011

Oh don’t worry…it’s just the sound of my ovaries exploding…

While S is off busy in DC (probably finding out which hotel to stalk next thursday since the Pens are in Caps territory) I found these beautiful pictures from the Penguins & Paws calendar. I know it’s past Thanksgiving already, but can I add these to the “I’m Thankful For…” list?

And now I really need to buy this calendar because Kris is posing with my favorite dog…ever.

I'll take them both, thank you.

Pretty sure we should change our blog name to LetangAndStaal.org or something. Seems to be all we talk about…but…until they give us a reason NOT to post about them at least once a week, we’ll keep doing our thing.

Giving Thanks.

21 11 2011

Welp, it’s that time of the year. Thanksgiving. (My favorite holiday–besides Christmas)

S & I decided it may be a good time to list the things we are thankful for. Our list got pretty long, so we’ll shorten it up a little bit…

1. Of course, it goes without saying…I am thankful for Kris Letang’s HairAHEM! Sorry guys, S wants me to generalize this one (Only because we would be leaving out so many other hotties. Ahem, Jordan Staal -S). WE are thankful for HOCKEY HAIR. But SHOUT OUT to the guy who we think is the KING of all glorious flow…

Straight out of Herbal Essence commercial....

It’s so silky and smooth and…ugh. Can I just tug on it run my fingers through it? *sigh* …one day…

And while we’re on the subject, I’m also thankful for his sudden anger outbursts from time to time….

DING DING DING! Bring on Round 2!

2. S text me and I shouldn’t have been surprised when I saw this: “I am thankful for Momma and Poppa Staal–no explanation needed. Genetics rule!”

I can hear S' ovaries exploding all the way from Boston...

3. Another one from S: “Movember! Nothing beats hot men with the confidence to pull off the classic ‘stache!”

We LOVE this.

I should say…there are some who TRY to pull off the ‘stache…but fail and end up looking like pedophiles. Stammer. Nash. I’m talking to you. Sorry boys. Shave it DECEMBER 1ST! Or I come stalk you and shave it for you. ;) (But Big Props on the attempt boys. You still get an A for effort from me- S)

4. Poor S. Living in the Sunshine State can’t be easy. “I’m thankful for the ‘Ice’ part of hockey. Perfect way to cool off in Florida.”

5. We BOTH read each other’s minds with this one…

WE are thankful for hockey conditioning. BOOTY BOOTY BOOOTY BOOOTY ROCKIN’ EVERYWHERE! 

I'm like: "nuhhhhhhhhhhhhh....." *drool*

I feel like I can actually see his a$$...or is that just my eyes??

AND last one on our list:

6. We are thankful for hockey sweaters. The amount of times so fair this season that we’ve had risky business style dance parties…GOOD LORD!! Nothing can replace the fun of those moments. Thick socks, nice comfy underwear, & sweater of your choice + some EPIC music == BEST NIGHT EVER.

in fact, tonight...we're having a dance party in honor of our Captain's return.

Excuse us while we go blast our music & slide through our apartments like Tom Cruise. (I am cueing “Domino” by Jessie J and pulling on one of my Jordan Staal sweaters as I type – S)

*sings* just take those old records off the shelf....

Anyways, for all you Americans (and Canadians– although we know your thanksgiving already passed) …what are you thankful for? Let’s see if our lists match! :)

Happy Holidays!

Love L & S xoxox
