Mikey Monday: I Got Goals

3 Oct

Mike had a goal and an assist in last night’s Caps vs. Blackhawks game, just to make sure I had something to cheer about.

Awwwww....

Mike talked afterward about30-35 min/game being too much at the pace of today’s NHL – he’s had issues with mental and physical fatigue because of total TOI.  It’ll be interesting to see if they can even it out more this season, when guys like Chara and Letang seem to always be on the ice for their teams.

... shucks.

He doesn’t get too excited about his goal, but we know he’s scooting inside.  And he wants to maximize the Backstrom-Ovi-Semin hug at the end (of course).  [video link]  Green’s got a 1G, 1 A in each of his last two games.

Mike was 2nd Star of the game… this picture.  And the reverse image on the bottom part of the board.  It’s from last season, but unless you’re bringing back The People’s Eyebrow, please stop trying to look so tough.  This is good enough for me:

Bonus: Neuvy eyebrow.

Preseason is great, but having no Toews, Keith, Seabrook, etc and no Patrick Sharp as he heals up is kinda sad for Hawks fans watching the game.  And when they go against the entire Caps A-list roster… well, you lose 4-1.  Just saying.

The lovely Ms. Carter joined us for the festivities.  Highlight of the night may be when her phone auto-corrected “Pants” into “Pantsunami.”    Is that a real thing?  Because I might have to make it a real thing.

    As my only comment of the week (srsly I’ve been ridiculed for being the top WUYS commentator – BY MY HUSBAND) had to comment on this one. Pants to “Pantsunami”? This actually happened. Best email EVER, Carter.

    I love it when Mike does that Canadian shucks smile thing. Even if his Sad Panda & tough faces make me want to hug him.

    As #2 commentator, I feel your pain #1! send the husband to me for a talking to! It’s a total achievement!!!

    Yeah, my phone is special. It also autocorrects “bitches” to “batches” and “shit” to “shut.” So yeah, you batches cracked my shut up last night. As did that child behind us – someone get that kid a Twitter, stat. Something like, @5YearOldCapsCommentator or @ILoveMyCapsAndTonkaTruck.
