Mikey Monday – FTW!

20 Dec

Well well, the Capitals won a game. Even I am breathing a sigh of relief because I don’t like to see people get humiliated.  It’s one thing to lose 8 in row when your sad panda face is not all over HBO.  Plus, I don’t want to hear excuses when they play the Penguins on Thursday.  It’s the Battle of WUYS, and there is no crying in hockey.

As for Mike… he had a tough week. He has 1 point in the Caps 8 game skid (none in the win either) and has struggled just as much as his teammates.  Last night he blasted a slap shot into Brooks Laich’s upper body and I bet he’ll spend today fetching new bags of frozen peas from Brooks’ freezer.

Fashion forward.

Mike’s hair is getting worse (why so short on the sides/back?!), but before yesterday’s game he reminded us that he rocks a mean scarf.  I bet there’s a cardigan under that jacket and moccasins on his feet.

For those who watched 24/7, we were treated to a ridiculous amount of adorableness from Greenie.  And not just because he had the sense to visit the trainer with his shirt off.  This show is so great because it shows the honest frustration among the players, and the threat of injury must be terrifying.  So hugs all around for Mike.

Free hugs.

I must also applaud Mike for being the most upbeat member of the Caps during this losing streak.  In every interview he is at least mildly positive.  Yes, most of it is empty sports-speak a la Bull Durham, but at least he kinda sells it. Example: Caps reaction video after watching 24/7.

In celebration of the Caps 1-game win streak, we say well done, Mike.  As long as you don’t tell Crosby about this.

Almost makes a girl a Caps fan.

    I kinda like his hair! Then I watched the Taylor-v-Miley video. BROOKS LIKES MILEY! Does that mean I have to now?

    Not enough Brooks in that 24/7 reaction video. Nope. And did you see @MDZ tweeted someone a happy birthday?? Awwww. Doesn’t it make you just want to, well, cuddle him or pat him on top of the head or something.

    Short comment: I’m currently trying to find out if ANYONE is flying out to DC from the snow-bound UK, cause I think Brooks needs some decent home care and also his laundry done. I think Fidget will not look after him properly.

    Just sayin’.

      I believe your presence is required. Or at least requested. Bring your nurse costume.

    Which one? The ones work gave me or the naughty one? Are you encouraging me to sabotage the Caps before the WC?

    Requested!? Really?! Who by? I understand Fidget has been a bit under the weather too. Let’s face it; both of their ages combined is older than me 😀

    Or does a certain blond Canadian know I’m writing a oneshot right now?

    This is ALL your fault Pants…

      I solemnly swear I am up to no good.

    Good, so you’re meeting me at Dulles with your own bag of tricks, right?

    Cause there’s no way I can handle two of them.

    Let’s face it – one look at Brooks and I’m just a massive puddle of mush inside…
