Mikey Monday

31 Jan

When I saw this photo, I nearly burst my spleen laughing.  WHO DOES THESE? Either brilliant or tragic, you decide.


Yah00! Puck Daddy caption: “Dude, senior prom was weird this year.”

My first thought was: This is how they make their moves on the ladies. Let me dim the lights by throwing my jersey over this IKEA lamp.  Although they both do it numbers-side up.  Show-offs.

In the skills competition, Mike competed in Fastest Skater against Steven Stamkos.  I’m sorry, what?  Ovi couldn’t help but steal Mike’s TV moment.  Here’s how I imagine this going:

You no win. I always win. How feel, Mike?

Ovi: Mike, you not very fast. Stamkos fast.  Also, Stamkos 20 years old.  You not so young.  And Stamkos weigh like 185.  You not so skinny.  He a race car, you a Vespa.  So Mike, how you think you do?

Mike: Stop c***-blocking me, douche.

Mike only lost by half a second, which I think is pretty impressive.

Mike also competed in the Skills Challenge Relay, doing right-handed one-timers from the blue line.  He followed Kris Letang (best defensive pair EVER) and did well.  Tanger had a tough time getting pucks up, Mike did a little better.  I was like a nervous mom.

Apparently, Sports Illustrated’s red carpet interview question was “What should you win an Oscar for?”  Mike answered, “My hairdo.” But should he?  I think he may have been topped this weekend:

Is that guy a Staal? He looks like a Staal. How many are there?

He’s good good angles on the tri-hawk here.  But Ryan Kessler has the thorns out:

Like a cactus.

And the dark horse candidate, no one saw him coming… Rick Nash with the porcupine:

I'm making a point.

What’s the verdict, does Mike’s hair take home the gold? Can any of these guys get a helmet on over these messes?

    Yes he does Dawn!

    Do ya think I can get that cuddle now?! I’d let him chuck his jersey over my lamp ANY day! Capitals jersey or no.

    *Note to Dawn: I refer to Fidget. Obviously.

    I. Love. Rick. Nash.

    The hair. The beard.

    I really really wish he lived in a bigger hockey market so I could watch him more.

    It is like Mike is saying “dude, if you ruin this for me, i will beat you with my moccasin.”

    Somebody told Rick Nash that Chuck loves lumberjacks. He certainly delivered.

      He knew I’d be watching. And swooning.

      It is a well known fact that I like them scruffy and lumberjack-ish. One of my main motivations for wanting to marry a Canadian man. I feel like there are significantly more of those sorts of guys in Canada than there are in Boston.

        I dunno Chuck, I’d hang around the Garden more. Lots of Canadians on the B’s… have you SEEN Bergy with his ever-present scruff? PHWOOOOAAAAAR! Imagine that in a lumberjack shirt!

        Or even Michael Ryder. That also has possibilities in a Lumberjack shirt and with some scruff. Yummy.

        Not as yummy as Bergy. Or Laich. Or Savvy. Or Fidget. Or LePretty. Or Sid. Or Flower. (Actually scratch Sid. He has no man-beard growing powers. But Maxime… Talbot, baby, TALBOT!)

        I am an equal-opportunity pervert. I am sure I have mentioned this before.
