Hot Wheels

6 Feb

On Thursday night, Gator and I went to the Washington Auto Show to meet John Carlson and Brooks Laich.  It was more than a little disorganized, but we sweet-talked the right people and ended up getting to hang around their interview filming and then cut the whole line.  Unintentionally awesome!

My vacation tan > John's vacation tan

Be jealous.  They were super sweet.  And if iCarly looked more like a Ken doll in real life I think Gator would have hurdled the table.  He is ADORABLE.  Even all caps is not enough to accurately describe him.  Brooks’ eyes are even bluer in real life – not possible, but true.  Makes a girl wish she’d get a flat tire in the rain.

Karl Alzner came with John, because they can’t be apart.  We didn’t get to see him but here’s Exhibit A: “Caps Roomates: Karlzner” video [link].

Then yesterday happened.  Brooks left the game in a bad way with 8 minutes to go in the 2nd period of the 4-1 loss to Boston.  The team hasn’t not commented on his apparent left knee injury because no one can handle anymore bad news around here.  He didn’t practice this morning [link].

The Caps play Florida tomorrow night, and a win would make them #1 in the Southeast.  And it would make us really happy.  So we’re going to be optimistic and Rock the Red and hope there’s anyone left on the ice to Unleash the Fury.

BONUS: If you’re in Chicago (or want to road trip with us), the Chicago Auto Show has Seabrook, Kane, Toews and Stalberg.  Holy Moly. [link]

    You girls look smokin’! And Brooks looks like a perfect lumberjack. Chuck will LOVE.
    As for the Chicago show…my brain can’t even handle this new. Viktor Stalberg, Pants. ZOMG.

      I like to think of this mythical Chicago Auto Show as “Ain’t No Table High Enough.”

        Oh god. This made me LOLs. And Viktor Stalberg….drool. Those eyelashes are so lust worthy.

          Jessica told me once, “I’d like to go to a salon where they do eyelash implants and order ‘the Patrick Kane.’ Or the ‘Viktor Stalberg.'”

      Did you notice that Toews and Kane get the “double asterisk” treatment on that events guide? It says something about wristbands, but what they’re REALLY saying is “We’re on to you, fangirls. Don’t make us release the hounds.”

    Mother of god. That shirt! That smile! I’m obviously not talking about Ken Doll, sorry, iCarly here.

    How in all that is holy Laich’s underpants could you NOT have told me about this auto show before hand? I’d have gone and gotten myself signed off for two weeks with back issues again and come over.

    But then now I’d be in jail. Because unlike Gator, I may not have restraint where Mr Blue Blue Eyes is concerned, even if the Professor did get away entirely unscathed two years ago! I think I may have a problem. Is there a help group? Is is specific for Caps players?

    As my field is trauma orthopaedic surgery, can I also volunteer myself to nurse Brooks back to health? I don’t mind a bit of beck and call work. Or rubbing the sore bits better. *evil grin*

    There is just so much awesome in this post…you and Gator were looking fierce with those boys. Brooks shouldn’t be allowed to wear shirts that color, it’s just not fair to the female race.
    Love the roommates video. There was a little estrogen fest at my apartment as Pam and I watched Carly undressing “No, keep going…take it all off!”
    When do we leave for Chicago?

      Oh yeah. Seconded. I generally hate plaid on anyone but I am convinced here!

    I nearly fainted upon seeing this post. iCarly and Brooks look FANTASTIC. You ladies look wonderful as well! I don’t know that I would have been able to hold myself back from hurdling over the table at iCarly, so major props to Gator. She has much more self restraint than I would!

    Oh what I would give to go to the Chicago Auto Show…

    You guys look great!!! So does iCarly and Brooks…always thought Brooks was a good looking guy…even during his AHL days with the Bears.

    Do you think the Chicago Auto Show is handing out oxygen masks with their player appearances?? Brent Seabrook’s thighs alone can make a girl pass out….then throw in Stalberg, Kane, and JONATHAN TOEWS??? Each admission ticket should include not only an oxygen mask but your own personal paramedic to administer CPR….or one of the boys could do the CPR/mouth to mouth!!
