Foxy Friday – Tim Thomas

26 Nov

Subtitle: Old dudes need love too!

I love my friend Pants dearly.  She’s made me Ramen noodles more than a few times when I was drunk and for this I am forever grateful.  But I’m starting to worry about her and her unhealthy obsession with underage and/or barely of age hockey players.   It was starting to make me feel sort of like a dirty old lady with all of these postings about Toews, Kane, Stamkos, Crosby, etc.

So I thought it time to inject some more age-appropriate hockey player loving into this blog of ours.  This week’s edition of Foxy Friday is dedicated to 36-year-old, Boston Bruins netminder, Tim Thomas.Tim was born in 1974, which makes him much more age-appropriate crush for us here at WUYS. (He’s 36).  He’s cute in the way that the guy who works for the utility company is cute.  You know the one.  He is the guy that you see every morning at Dunkin’ Donuts getting coffee in his faded, slightly grimy blue jeans and hooded sweatshirt.  He may or may not have a scruffy beard (hot!) and underneath that blue-collar exterior is a really sweet guy who will totes make you a cup of tea when you’re feeling sick and watch your favorite girly movie with you (and pretend to like it.)

Oh, and he’s good at ice hockey too.  Tim won the Vezina in 2009 and after a sub-par year last year due to a torn labrum in his hip,  TIMMAY had surgery in the off-season and now looks to be on point for another stellar year.  He’s got his form back… okay so he really has no form… he just sort of flops around on the ice (a la Dominik Hasek)… but it totally works for him.  Currently, he’s 11-2-1, with 1.56 GAA and .951 save percentage.  He’s 1st in the league in save percentage and shutouts (4), 2nd in GAA, and 4th in Wins.

So we salute you, Timmy the Tank!  Keep being Foxy!

Who's a winner? Timmy's a winner!

    CHUCK! We have missed you around here. Excellent FF selection. And you know me – Rob Weasley has been my underage boyfriend for like 12 years. I get older, but the best-looking guys all stay the same age.

    I should point out that blue-collar-hot utility company guys who you see getting coffee every morning only exist on the east coast. I never, ever see them in CA. Lucky girl.

    Also, I checked and I’m closer in age to both Tazer and Crosby than I am to Matt Damon. They may be younger than I am, but at least I’m still shopping in the right aisle.

      Speaking of the Matt Damon man – when the hell did he get grey? Did I miss something??

    I applaud this for two reasons …1. I wouldn’t say his form is flopping – it’s ‘unconventional’ and ‘unpredictable’ which is good. It even throws Ovi off. 2. Timmy is awesome. Good job Chuck! Even if a little obvious given you are a Bruins fan. 😉
