Free Agent Frenzy

1 07 2012

S  here, blogging from the Windy City of Chicago.

Today is not only Canada Day, but the beginning of Free Agent Frenzy in the NHL. While L is chilling on the lake, I have been blowing up her phone with the latest updates. Oh, and in case you were wondering…we are both rocking our Gongshow Gear “Free Agent” buckets!

I am posted up on my computer watching NHL.com and scanning the Twitter feeds. Parise watch is becoming a little too Lebron James esque, so until that is settled I will update you on some other highs and lows:

  • Colby Armstrong waived by Leafs and picked up for one year by Montreal.
  • Zenon Konopka to Minnesota Wild…L and I like this move.
  • Steve MacIntyre resigned by the Penguins for 2 years.
  • Aaron Asham takes a deal from the Rangers, and I cry myself to sleep tonight.
  • And my personal favorite so far…Tanner Glass signs with the Penguins.

Tall and strong.

So without further ado, the girls at Hockey’s Finest send a big welcome to Mr. Glass for joining our favorite hockey club. You are officially on our radar, and we can’t say that we mind it. You are quite the looker Mr. Glass…

He’s smart too! Look momma, a Dartmouth grad!

I will try and keep you all updated as more free agency news comes in! -S





…I have a new boyfriend…

30 09 2011

It’s 11:12pm, 1 minute past 11:11pm. Wanna know what I wished for?!

Yep, I wished for him

I know, I know…I was at a Bruins game—so I should be cheering on my boys. But really, I couldn’t help but just stare at Ottawa’s lineup. First of all, let me just say that if Konopka winked at me ONE MORE TIME (a total of 3 for the whole night)…I would have hopped the glass and– well, I’ll stop myself there…. No, I’m not joking. There were 3 distinct winks right at me. Like: slammed-up-against-the-glass-looking-right-at-me kinda winks. **swoon** Second of all. To the 50 year old man who stole the puck Konopka threw over the glass for me….YOU SUCK! He was winking & smiling at me, not you. Pretty sure, given the chance, he’d take me over you. Give me back my puck.

Dear Konopka, I told my friend from Ottawa to let you know I’ll be waiting for you here in Boston next time you’re in town. You know….to give me my puck, of course… [insert evil smile & devil horns here]

And lastly, a HUGE thanks to my Uncle who gave me free tickets to tonight’s preseason game. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to sneak my way down (past security) and into glass seats. I LOVE YOU! (PS– keep the tickets coming my way).

Anyway, on to the game. Bruins lost, as you all know. But…who cares?!

Timmy was a Boss, as always…

Timmy T, ladies & gents. Timmy T!

Lucic scored. (the one Bruins goal of the night…)

All I could think about was the song "All I Do is Win" when he scored...

But…he couldn’t do it without the help of his BEST FRIEND (and one of the CUTEST bromances on the team—besides Seguin & Marchand):

Horty <3 back in action

Oh yeah, and for my Pens fans…here’s a throwback for ya:

Taught Kris Letang almost everything he knows...

I have to admit, Gonchar isn’t the most photogenic person on the planet. In fact, I even got a picture of him picking his nose….

the alcohol delayed my reactions....but I swear...his fingers were up there...

Alright, it’s now 11:35…and I’m dreading my alarm clock at 6am. So when you see me tweet about how much I regret coming to this game (& starting my pregame at 4pm) —just remind me that I had a hell of a time & now have a new boyfriend. If you could also remind me to pop some Tylenol for my hangover….you guys would definitely be the best readers EVER.

Konopka: I’m waiting for you. Next time don’t be such a tease. Stop by & say hi. I dont bite………hard. Go ahead. Call me a puck bunny….I dare you ;)

God bless digital cameras <3
