Defense? What Defense?

8 12 2011

Alright, I think I’ve stayed pretty darn calm through this storm of injuries lately…but now it’s getting personal. It’s effecting my Fantasy team!

I’m the only girl in an 8-man league & for a while I was winning–blowing them all away, in fact. It felt amazing. But ever since Letang went down…my team went down. From 1st  to 2nd. Yeah, I know. WAH WAH, L is in 2nd place. But when you are in a league full of the most cocky guys you know. 2nd place feels like last place.

COME BACK! I NEED YOU!

Not only am I missing K.Letang…but I’m also missing M.Green & M.Staal. So Seriously, my D is struggling.

Ouch. It hurts.

BUT I REFUSE TO TRADE ANYONE. That’d be like giving up on my boys…and I simply can not do that.

Hockey hurts to watch now. Literally, I watch through my fingers…praying that no one touches anyone in hopes to avoid injury.

So to end this little rant, I’d like to pray to the hockey Gods.

STOP INJURING OUR BOYS! Amen.

Oh, one more thing.

If anyone else touches Sidney Crosby…I will wreck you.

Cue the giggles…

14 11 2011

Ok, I saw this and started giggling. No, not laughing…but giggling. Like a giddy little school girl…

*giggle*

Strained groin muscle…. *giggle*

Poor guy… *giggle*

Those hurt…

I can’t even count the number of times that has happened to me in my life. Add S in that count & I’m pretty sure we’re in the 100’s. But for some reason, when I hear it happens to a guy…I start giggling. Uncontrollably…

Yes, I know. I’m so immature.

Anyway, now that I have controlled myself…feel better Mikey. Lots of stretching.

*giggle*





It’s Battle Time!

14 11 2011

It’s that time of year again!

It’s All Star voting time!

S & I have already cast our FIRST ballots many times.

Look at S' star studded line up!

my beauty

Pretty sure we’ll be entering under different email addresses to double (possibly triple) our chances of winning a trip to Ottawa for the game.

So ladies & gents. It’s time. [Click here] and go vote for your favorite players to go to Ottawa this year. Mark your calendars for January 28th & 29th. If I knew more people who liked hockey, I would totally stage a road trip. Afterall, Ottawa is only 7 hours away….





Countdown: 52 Days

15 08 2011

There are Mike Green days till the puck drops to kick off the new NHL season. (Oh, yum! -L)

What kind of female-run hockey countdown would this be without Mike Green? It would be boring…that’s for sure!

Love me!!!

And how could you not love him? He drives an orange Vespa for crying out loud! (And don’t forget the shoes…only M could pull those off… -L)

This picture will never get old.

So readers, I am pleased to announce that we are just 52 days away from seeing more of this face…

(Thank Jesus. I need some cute/adorable/hot/sexy men in my life again. Slim pickin’ in Beantown this summer… -L)





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…..

Pimp My Ride.

25 07 2011

Some hockey players like to treat themselves to their dream cars as soon as they get a chance to. Who can blame them, right? If I could afford a Lambo, I’d buy one in a heartbeat! But then again, I’d also buy one now and go into debt forever. Anyway, back to the point of this post. (Lambo??? Give me my F-250 super duty with a lift kit -S)

For example: MGreen & Flower — they both had no problem buying their dream cars. It also makes it extremely easy to find them around town! BONUS!

Now stand right there & pose. Yup, right there. Nope, go back. Right there.

I want it. Like now.

Other hockey players like to customize their toys. Take Tanger for instance. As soon as the season ended (aka– not even a week) he decided to put some custom rims on his ride. Must be his way of sulking…

Smile! No? ....ok....

I now know what he drives. Mwhahahaa! EXTRA BONUS! S, please move to Pittsburgh. Forget Chicago & DC…I wanna go on a Scavenger Hunt! (Don’t worry, before you come visit I will go on a city wide recon mission…-S)

And then there is Matt Niskanen. This is an oldie that I stumbled upon today. God Bless Tumblr.

Poor guy–has the worst car in the whole NHL. Or should I say had? Anyone else curious as to what he is driving now?? (A large part of me hopes he still has that car. It would make me feel better about my beat up explorer -S)

Anyone else remember (and love) this show?! I used to watch it religiously back when Paul Walker claimed my heart in The Fast & The Furious. Yeah, I wanted a pimped out ride so I could find some sketchy street in Boston or Providence to “street race” …what in the world was I thinking?? (We thought we were cool, but boy were we so, so wrong! -S)





Helping hands

20 07 2011

Hell must be freezing over …

The Caps are capturing my heart. Saw these on my Twitterfeed…

MELT. MY. HEART.

Today Carlson & Mikey (he already had my heart) are doing some good in the community. What an adorable cause–building a playground for little kids.

What do you want your playground to look like??

Dear Mikey & John,

Can’t wait to see the finish product! Do a good job–it’s for the kids afterall. But if you don’t mind…a few shirtless pictures in tool belts & work hats would be great.

Love,

The girls from Hockey’s Finest





Boston & Florida take Toronto: Part Deux

19 07 2011

Day Deux

Our first morning in Toronto started off with a job interview (wish me luck), followed by a day on Bloor St for a day of retail therapy. You just can’t leave Canada without a trip to LuLuLemon & Roots–or maybe it’s just us. (I mean COME ON, I bought a sweatshirt that folds into a pillow. Ingenious! -S)

Anyway, both of us couldn’t keep the smiles off our faces when we walked past the huge Hugo Boss store.

Every hockey players love.

My mind immediately flashed to Mike Green–which then made me giggle like a little girl…

1:20 marker for a look inside Mikey’s closet.

Love the BLaich commentary.

Anyway, back to Toronto. We came across this discovery.

We. Love. Canada.

Timbits (an assortment of everything they had under the counter–our taste buds were overwhelmed to say the least). Ketchup Chips — best thing ever invented. Fries & Gravy Chips — tastes just like Poutine!! SCORE!! And drumroll please…TEAM CANADA band-aids! (which I am wearing now because of a battle scar from Montreal’s airport–you can’t take me anywhere) How epic is that?! We don’t have Team USA band-aids… *sigh* only in Canada. (They proved handy when I fell in the middle of a cross walk that night in downtown Toronto and skinned my knee…Yes, my middle name is Grace -S)

Another bomb restaurant we headed to is called E11even (@e11evenToronto) –just like Gretzky’s & RealSports, you all should check it out. When you get your bill, they put it in an envelope that says “The Damage” — how clever is that??! (considering the fact that S & I can blow money in a restaurant super easy–scratch that–we can blow money anywhere we go)

For our night out we decided to head back to RealSports because the bartender says it is the place to be on a Friday or Saturday night. What we failed to realize until AFTER was that we took advice from a female (problem #1) & TSwift was across the street (problem #2)–which means all sports-loving Canadian boys stayed as far away as they possibly could. This is just yet another reason we don’t like TSwift & next time we decided we’d ask the GUYS where to go…not a girl.

Our goal, so far of meeting cute Canadian boys (preferably hockey players), was shot down. We had a few lookers–but no one brave enough to say hi. We struck out–swinging…

So the song to end Friday night is a good one…

Tune in tomorrow for Part Trois.





A special treat for you.

22 05 2011

So, a few posts back S and I introduced our Hot List. Well…we decided that since posting pictures of every guy would be a lot, we’d just throw together a tiny video. You can probably start to expect these every once and a while.

For all you Sid the Kid, Steve Downie, Mr. Underwood, Ryan Kesler, Baby Seguin, E.Staal, Stamkos, Talbot, Nate Thompson, Shawn Thornton, and “Captain Serious” fans out there…I promise you’ll be happy (we found some great pictures). A few other’s that make the first cut: Mike Green, Victory Hedman, Joffrey Lupul, James Neal, and Nathan Horton.

This first “video” is just a picture slideshow. Not too much. Like I said, we threw it together (total time spent: 10 minutes). Once I finally get my video software working right, I promise…these videos will be epic. But for now, you’ll have to make due with this…

These boys are so addicting. I just can’t get over it.





Oh dear lord…

22 05 2011

I’m pretty sure I just tried to crawl through my computer screen when Mike Green posted this to his twitter. I warn you ladies…I’m still having trouble breathing…

Mikey, you're killing me...slowly...

Is it October yet?! Sure would love to see him back in uniform….or not in uniform. Wouldn’t want to hide the beautiful artwork…. ;)
