Birthday Boy: Jonathan Toews

29 Apr

Happy 24th birthday, Tazer!

Captain Fill-in-the-Blank, fearless leader of the Chicago Blackhawks, is celebrating a birthday.  Do you think he eats cake?  I think he does today.  A whole cake, in front of the TV, yelling at the Flyers/Devils game sounds about right.  I might do the same – you know, in solidarity.  Then we can go to the gym.

The Toews Fan Club meets here every time I post about him, so there’s not much else to say.  Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe, Gold Medal, a lake named after him… he’s had a good 23 years, 365 days.  The Hawks season is over (*sniff*) but Jon and his team will be back in October t0 go again.  Here’s this year’s Last Day of School interview [link].

I know it’s sad, but hopeful too.  It’s the Stalberg one that nearly made me cry (talk about cake…).  Now chin up, y’all.  Once you get past the loss, summer is not so bad…

Last year’s Birthday Boy: Jonathan Toews post, just for fun (and more photos).

      I refuse to feature any Rangers while they play the Capitals! (Excellent mention, though.)

        It is also Will and Kate’s anniversary. It’s like the Universe said “Sorry ordinary people. Today, you are just not worthy.”

          It’s also Pants & Gator’s friend-iversary – we went to our first game a year ago today, saw the Lightning beat the Caps in game one of the second round. Later that night, I ran away from Steven Stamkos in the street. It was a good day. 😉

      Oh to be his couch . . . there are few things in this world greater than the “hockey butt”. Captain Sexy strikes again! So sad that I won’t see him again until July.

    I’ll be able to make it through the summer with no JT thanks to his last day of school interview. Whoever helps him buy clothes should continue buying everything one size to small. We all win. Happy birthday Toews!
