Team Sweden

1 May

Paulina Gretzky did male hockey fans a favor by getting frisky all over Instagram this week.  If you heard DC’s Elliot in the Morning today, it was a gem.  But it’s a little unfair, don’t you think?  They get bikinis and we get beards?

Ladies, don’t worry.  Sweden never lets us down.

No really, they help everybody.

We would much rather see this face in the playoffs, but I’m coping much better with the Blackhawks off-season by knowing that Viktor Stalberg must have a cameo in Marvel’s The Avengers.  I bet he’s defeating evil and restoring justice to a world where everyone has access to whitening toothpaste.

Sigh.  Superheros are so hot right now.

Amen and thank you, Brittany. (@kneesandtoews)

Check out which of your favorite NHL players have joined their national teams for the IIHF World Championships here.  The tournament competition starts May 4 and you can follow it here.

Whatever you’re doing right now, it’s not as much fun as watching Viktor Stalberg speak Swedish [video].  I need him (or Hammer, below) to teach me to correctly pronounce all the names in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.

    This is hysterical. I like that a generous sprinkling of preposterous seasons these meatballs for a change. I don’t find this lot hot – not even tepid. But funny – oh yes! 🙂 And thanks for the link to the IIHF Worlds rosters. Team Meatball will take this one, I predict. Canada’s roster is interesting, but not as strong as usual. USA might get some panties in a bunch. But it’ll be all Team Meatball!

    They say it is Disney movies that give us unrealistic expectations of men. I say it is Swedish men. #SwedenIsGodsCountry
