They’re Sexy and They Know It

9 Nov

If it wasn’t for WUYS fan Carter, aka @thekitchenette, I totally would have missed this.

And that would have been a real shame.

Rask, McQuaid, Boychuk, and Marchand channel their inner Hansel.

Darth Quiader and Tuuuuukkkkkaaa showing us all why we should cast them in the remake of “Newsies”

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

How much you want to bet Seguin has a matching fedora?  They are in a serious bromance, after all.

He's got the swag sauce. So he dripping swag goo.

Hello Johnny Boychuk.  You be looking all sort of right.  Call me.

What the Warblers would wear if they were hockey players. And not in high school. And not a glee club.

Just when I think things are looking good…

Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk up and breaks his forearm. Or should I say, more specifically that Brandon Dubinsky of the New York Rangers breaks Johnny’s forearm.

Anyone knows that hockey players are notorious for taking a puck to the face, maybe losing a few teeth, getting stitched up and getting back on the ice without missing a shift and kudos to Johnny for trying to stick it out for the rest of the game.  But it turns out that having your ulna cracked in two sort of messes with your game, especially that whole gripping-the-stick-and-shooting-the-puck thing.

Today at practice, Johnny had the chance to talk to the press.  Watch this video.  Trust me.  It’s adorable.

So there are so many things I LOVE about this video – his beanie, the scruff, the surprising adorable Edmontonian accent.  Then of course, there are those unruly eyebrows that frame his baby blues and the fact that he wants to get a green cast (why not a black and yellow one, Johnny?) But what makes this video so endearing is that you can tell that he’s seriously disappointed that he can’t play.

Like totes seriously.  Sure, he might be joking and trying to play it cool on the outside but you know that on the inside, he is a sad panda bear.  He’s like a kid who finally built up the courage to ask the prettiest girl in his junior high to dance, but she said no, so he’s trying to play it all cool, when all he wants to do is run into the bathroom and cry.

So for the next four weeks, Johnny will be on the couch, probably eating Totino’s pizza rolls, watching re-runs of “Dirty Jobs.”  Let’s just hope and pray that he doesn’t spend it growing one of these…

 

Creepiest. Stache. Ever.

 

No ordinary Thursday…

7 Oct

Normally, when I wake up, I just roll out of bed and shuffle my way to the bathroom, bleary eyed and half asleep, with maybe a “good morning” grunt to my roommate.

But today was different.

When I woke up, I had extra pep in my step.  Sure it could have been that the sun was finally peeking out after 3 days of non stop misery and rain.  Or maybe it was the fact that the long weekend is almost here.  But nay, it was something less entirely! It was….

NHL FACE-OFF 2010!!

Today marks the first day of the 2010-2011 NHL Hockey season and I think that I can speak for my fellow WUYS that we are totes excited.  Totes MaGoats Excited!  We’re sort of like Buddy the Elf when he finds out that Santa is coming. SANTA!!!

This season of promise kicks off with three games today:

I think we all know where Pants will be for the Pens game.  If you live in the San Francisco area and hear screaming and screeching, don’t be alarmed.  Do not call the police.  It just because they showed a shirtless Sidney Crosby doing squats in his Reebok Zig sneakers.

Boston Bruins start their season on Saturday the first of two games versus the Phoenix Coyotes in lovely, historical Prague, but the first stop on their Eurotrip was Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Personally, I LOVE that the NHL is taking the game global, if for nothing else than more BOYCH MEETS WORLD episodes, feature B’s defenceman Johnny Boychuk, who might be the most adorable Edmonton, Albertonian EVER!  Plus I dig his last name.
