Stanley Cup Finals Beard Appreciation Post

30 May

At 8pm EST tonight, the puck will drop on THE greatest sports champion series in the world.

Obviously, we’re slightly biased because we pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe hockey since we’ve started this blog.  I mean, not like we didn’t follow hockey closely before WUYS but we’ve progressed to a Beautiful-Mind-writing-on-the-window level of crazy.  But I honestly believe that there is no greater trophy in the history of sport.

Yesterday was the Stanley Cup Finals Media Day, when all the players don their Tuesday best (hooded sweatshirts), trims up their playoff beards (except Dustin Penner), and face the press gauntlet.

Not only does the day allow writers to ask important (and totally ridiculous) questions of the players but it provides us with amazing photos of playoff beards.

Here are some highlights from yesterday’s Media Day at Prudential Center.

Got a craving for some Penncakes.

  • Just when you thought Mike Richards couldn’t get any dreamier, he goes and does this.

Dustin Brown. Fully committed to this Amish look.

*harumph* *crosses arms*

A beard like a beautiful sunset


Richards and I ’bout to tear this mutha up!


You’re welcome.  🙂

    Two things:
    1: “I mean, not like we didn’t follow hockey closely before WUYS but we’ve progressed to a Beautiful-Mind-writing-on-the-window level of crazy.” There are not enough ways for me to express my love for you guys.

    2. Mike Richards DAMMIT. I’m already in love with enough hockey players to make my husband want to divorce me. You and your dreamy beard are NOT helping.

      Love you too Lindsay!

      Mike Richards is looking exceptionally dreamy as of late. The beard and the hair are really working for me. The stuff of fantasies…

    Wow….I’ve been reading this blog for at least half the season, so I’m not sure how I missed this: but Adam Henrique is extremely attractive. I had no clue.

    Thank you so much, as always, for expanding my horizons 🙂

    Adam Henrique’s eyes are a ridiculously pretty color.
