Foxy Friday: Ryan Callahan

23 Dec

I’m way behind and just watched the first two episodes of 24/7.  I very nearly had to Foxy Friday every ten seconds of this show.  The Universe and tigers and kids in sleds and every word Tortorella says…

But we went with Ryan Callahan.

Last year I stayed a whole month with NYRFan Stephanie.  She tried to buy a Callahan jersey but shop.NHL.com was all out of As.  Not just for Alternate Captain, but overall.  WHAT?!  I assured her people would understand CLLHN across the back, but what we really needed was Callahan’s grandmother to given them an earful.

Callahan is from Upstate NY (represent!!) and was named captain of the Rangers this season at the ripe old age of 26.  He takes a taxi to the Garden because he’s totally hoping it’s Cash Cab.  (Oh wait, that’s us.)

Bonus sweater points, check.

So far this year, Cally has 12 G/11 A.  The Rangers are 4th overall in the East and right behind Philly in the Atlantic Division.  They’ve won their last 3 games and 7 of 11 in December.  

In your FACE!

Tonight, the Rangers play the Flyers in will undoubtedly be a highlight of the 24/7 series.  After this:

Maybe Ryan will repeat his first hat trick/first 4 goal game/first 5 point night ever, which he had at the end of last season before breaking his ankle blocking a Zdeno Chara shot.

I still hate the Rangers and the Flyers.  But if 24/7 is weakening my defenses, it’s definitely in NY’s favor.  I mean, there’s a reason they don’t interview Briere often (sorry I’m not sorry – people make fun of Sid just for laughing like a girl!).  But I haven’t gotten too soft on them, not yet.

Stop trying to change my mind!

    HBO are masters at mind f*ckery. Honestly, how is it that I’m falling in love with the Rangers?? Prust, Boyle, Lundqvist and his incredible fashion sense, and Ryan Callahan – UGH. Dammit, HBO. And your grandmother, Ryan, for being so ridiculously adorable.

    I am easily swayed towards the Rangers and towards the Flyers. Except not in the direction of Danny Briere.

    ZOMG – just watched the first episode on the ferry. New York Rangers – WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!

    (PS – I am still not over the fact Henrik Lundqvist is MY AGE.)

      Dude. Welcome to the love fest. Next week you’ll be texting me about the napping scene…like Carter and I have been.
