Foxy Friday: Joe Vitale

6 Jan

Didn’t I *just* say this shouldn’t be all Pens and whatnot?  Well sometimes Foxy Friday writes itself.

26-year old Joe Vitale is from the Lou, and we assume he’s proud.  (That’s St. Louis for anyone who didn’t have kitchen dance parties with me and Chuck in 1999.)  He went to Northeastern University (hi Boston!) where he majored in journalist.  Joe, if you’re reading, we take guest bloggers. 😉

Joe plays Center and has 2 G/4 A in 32 games this season.  His current contract runs through the end of this season.  Joe has two NHL fights, and according to, he won them both.  Here’s one vs. the Bruins where he takes his helmet off for you [link].

The Pens need to get more interviews for Joe, but based off this old one [link], his favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean, he loves the Beatles and he eats a banana before every game.  That’s kind of a weird superstition, and Joe knows it.

    As a journalism major and fan of Nelly, I approve of this Foxy Friday 1000%.

    EXCELLENT suggestion by Ms. Lauren of Hockey’s Finest.

    He kinda sorta of has a young, less-Big Bird-ish Joey Thornton thing going on, no?

      Chuck – does he get to share your poppy-seed bagel from now on?

        It’s a sesame bagel and that is only for Joey T.

        Joey V. and I can share a cinnamon raisin one any day.

    Also that first photo of him reminds of when Wayne sees Cassandra for the first time at Comrade’s in “Wayne’s World”.

    If 5′ 11″ is good enough for Crosby, it’s good enough for me.

    Holy blue eyes, Batman!! Joey V coming with the straight sexy look in that first picture there!

    This just goes to show again that there is no other sport that has hotter players then hockey does. #Boom
