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?”

ouch.

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.

#CrosbyWatch2

6 03 2012

Today.

This.

Happened.

Can you believe it!? We’re back on the CrosbyWatch train.

Again?

Annnnnnnnnnnnd cue Hockey’s Finest Office dance party. I’ll bring the chips & dip.

So much for a productive day at work. Geez. One thing happens & all of a sudden my focus is completely gone. But for good reason!

This news has EVERYONE excited.

Stop it, Staalsy! I'm ticklish there!

Hugs and kisses for everyone today.

As for the rumor that he could come back as early as Sunday– I pray not. Sunday, the Bruins play the Pens. And if you all remember what happened last time they played each other……..

Yeah. I’d just rather him stay off the ice for that game.

BUT!

Congrats Sid! Glad you’re making progress. We’ve missed your beautiful face.

Smile puuuurty for the camera.

And in other news:

"feeling better"

That’s a good sign, right?! I keep having to remind myself to breathe in & out. I’m waiting to hear the diagnosis. If it says “concussion” … I’ll go into depression. Someone needs to wrap all these boys in bubble wrap. I’m not playin’ around. Line ’em up. BUBBLE WRAP FOR EVERYONE.

But, Kris has some help on his side:

TEAMWORK!

Good lookin’ out, Sid! Someone’s gotta take care of my man while I’m away.

*L

PS – S & I have cleared our calendars for Nealer’s appearance on NHL36 tomorrow. I pray they show us something we don’t already know. But even if they don’t…it’ll still be the best half hour of television. EVER.

 





Baby come back.

2 01 2012

Seriously, I can’t take it anymore. Not only did I have to leave the Sunshine State (and S) to come back to this frozen wasteland…but there is still NOTHING new on the Pens injury situation. I know I’m a little late in posting this…but now that I finally am back to having NO life besides hockey & work I figured I could vent.

No Crosby. No Letang.

A team without Crosby or Letang is like forever without Sun. It just isn’t right. Sometimes I’m  not even excited to watch a game anymore. GASP! A serious depression is beginning to set in and there’s only 1 cure.

This face.

sexi boi

And this face.

those damn squats--gets me everytime.

And these faces better show up soon. Preferably BEFORE the All Star Weekend–which is only 26 days away. L does not like. I will pack my bags….AGAIN (and S knows how much I hate packing) to go nurse these boys back to health myself. Chicken Soup cures all…right?

*cries in a corner*

 

 

 





Ummm….

2 01 2012

Jesus, Mary & Joseph...

Holy Drool.

Happy Winter Classic Day. That is all.





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.

xoxo

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.





About Damn Time!

22 11 2011

I don’t have much to say today….mostly because I still can’t put my thoughts into words. The only words that sum up how I feel are:

Welcome back, indeed.

Last. Night.

Good God.

2 Goals. 2 Assists. I don’t care how much you hate Sid. You gotta respect what he did out there.

Good to have ya back, Captain.

We missed you!

That. Smile.
