Mikey Monday: Tough Love

25 Apr

You know in A Christmas Story, when Ralphie shoots his eye just like everyone said he would?  Well Mike took another shot to the head on Saturday.  I swear he’s magnetic.  This dinger actually knocked a few screws out of Mike’s helmet… [video]

I'm breaking dishes up in here all night...

Our immediate Mike Green Prayer Circle seemed to work though – he was back on the Caps bench before long, though he didn’t play.  Boudreau said he was fine, and we believe because we want to.  Washington advanced to Round 2, so Mike will have a few extra days to sleep this one off.

taking a bow

And Round 2 means we get to see more great hockey.  But really it means more of this epic bromance, which is quickly overtaking all others (even Toews/Kane).  These two are like Jack and Rose and they’ll never let go.

We are best friends forever and ever and ever. And ever.

Hi Nicky. It's me, Jay Beagle. You seem nice. Can we be friends too?

Uh, Nicky, it's lunch time. But you're busy. So I'll just go alone. And eat both halves of my sandwich too, that I was saving for you.

But Mike makes the best sandwiches. And shares his Diet Coke. What have I done? Hey Mike, wait up!

It's just you and me, Nicky. Don't ever forget.

Dawn, Mr. Cherrie and I all cried laughing at that last photo.  Somewhere a tiny crab is leading a cast of swamp creatures in an animated song encouraging these two to just SWAK already.

    If Animal takes up residence again, I’m calling in Pest Control. Or the Browncoats (did ya like that?!)

    That was hilarious! Do you think Nicky & Mikey have one of those 3-armed snuggly things to cuddle in? And who has control of the remote? I think we should be told.

    But if Nicky goes all Ho-like I’ll share your sandwich with you Mike! 🙂

      The three-armed cuddly thing makes me think of a dirty joke, which I don’t mind either.

    LOVE FEST 2011!

    Why does Beagle have to get the boot? Can’t the be the “Three best friends that anyone could have”??

    That would be the third wheel and there is NO ROOM! As for the remote, there is no time for TV after the game, it’s Courvoisier, a bubble bath, swedish pancakes, scented candle where ever that leads too …

      what about the meatballs Dawn? And they do get time off. I know he and Brooks used to have the nights in with The Notebook, Love Actually and Top Gun, but surely Mike and Nicky have their own special movie to watch.

    Can i tell you how upset I was that the person to take down MG52 was one Mr. Matt Gilroy. Scoring the first goal of the series and then taking down Mr. Dreamy?! What the heck, Matt, what did we ever do to you? We hosted you with pride when you won the Hobey Baker and National Championship and you go and break my heart this way. man oh man.

      AND we named him our first Foxy Friday EVER!

      Why you go and do us like that, Matt?
