I Love Twitter – Episode 74

17 Feb

I actually said, “Baby Jesus in the manger.” when I saw this.

For the record, Gator is fine. She saw this last night and didn’t even mention it.  In fact, no one mentioned it. I thought we were friends, you guys!!!

And Karl too, of course.  These two are so freaking precious.

Here’s Zac’s story [link, video] and how you can support his fight against cancer.

Mikey Monday: Photo Booth

30 Jan

Hmm, 500 unopened emails or Mikey Monday?

I can’t think of anything that looks happier than this, except maybe getting to actually see all the photostrips clearly.  But this is pretty much the definition of joy.  And bromance.

If they can’t play hockey, at least they have each other.

(Side note: Mike’s girlfriend is a photographer, presumably responsible for these.  We thank her.  I’m intentionally not posting about her so please leave her and links to her work out of the comments.  Thanks.)

While I was on my honeymoon, Mike and iCarly went on an All-Star Break vacation to the Caymans and posted all kinds of Tweets and photos.

I shouldn’t make fun of anyone’s vacation wear, considering what my hair looked like after a week in Costa Rica.  But those are some short shorts, Mikey!  And this… WOW.  If there’s anyplace on Earth worse than American Apparel, this is what they’re selling.

The boys went deep sea fishing, and iCarly caught dinner.  Showing off for Gator (again).

Now that we’ve all returned from our sunny tropical destinations, back to work.  Sometimes it’s good to be home.

Nicky. Twitter. YES.

12 Jan

To everyone who saw this last night and thought of us, thanks!  Nicky Backstrom joined Twitter and the DC-area power gird promptly failed as fangirls crashed the mainframe.  I think Nicky joined now because he has the best profile photo of any Washington Capital.

Or it could be because I got my Backstrom shirt in the mail yesterday, and I was listening to Robyn in the car.  Obviously.

I may have sent a series of texts that looked like: “Gator, Nicky joined Twitter.  GATOR, HE JOINED TWITTER!!!”  Then I calmed down, and laughed because NB was following 5 people and Mike wasn’t one of them.  To his defense, neither were Ovi, Carlson, Knuble or Alzner.  But still.

So far, Nicky is winning the grammatical battle for my heart.  Anyone who uses that many exclamation points is going to fit in around here.

Now, the next time any sort of adult beverage is within reach, someone please take my phone away.  “Don’t Drink and Hockey” really means “Don’t Drink and Tweet at Hockey Players.”

We’ve been planning a post about players on Twitter, but the list grows so fast I can’t keep up.  There’s an NHLPA “Player Tracker” app that supposedly runs all their Tweets but I don’t think it’s current.  Anyone have suggestions?

New Coach, New Girlfriend, New Attitude?

1 Dec

Let's get this party started

So Ovi has a new coach, a new girlfriend so let’s hope that leads to a new attitude! Right? Well if the first game was any indication, I might jump ship – WHAT?! Just kiddding. That sound you just heard was Pants and Chuck simulatenously dropping over.

but only one named Letang

I’m  so excited for the battle of the hotties tonight so remember to get your half rack ready and you HAVE TO DRINK everytime they mention St. Sid. This is mandatory. Then tell us how it went – if you recover – because I’m telling you, you’ll be amazed!

The Catzipals new attitude? Let's hope so

I can’t decide if I’m going to watch the Pit feed or the Caps feed because I kind of a have a crush on Staggy. He’s a glass is- over-flowing kind of guy. But Joe B. and Locker make me laugh because they get side-tracked alot. It won’t matter which feed you watch because St. Sid will be ALL OVER it. Let’s hope  they all borrowed Ovi’s razor through. SRSLY!

even i think he looks better this way

Here’s the line up and I KNOW! WHERE’S LETANG!?! *SUPER SIGH* Ovi is going to be upset that his real boy toy is not playing. How can he pull off his jersey and play slip and tickle with his favorite pengiun?

the most epic bromance - EVER


(Vitale, MacIntyre)



On a side note, the Anaheim Ducks scooped BB as their coach so I wish him the best of luck and since every knows that I also have a crush on that ‘other’ #8 Teemu, GO DUCKS! DD is #8, Teemu is #8 and Ovi is #8 and Letang is #58 …. go crazy 8’s!

Mikey Monday: Not a Drill

21 Nov

The news on Mike is:

1) He’s not skating [link].  Boudreau hopeful Mike will be able to skate by the end of this week.

2) The Caps are kinda falling apart.  Semin’s demoted to 4th line and may be a healthy scratch vs. Phoenix tonight [link].  They’ve lost 6 of 7 games, giving up 27 goals in the process.  Defenseman Dmitry Orlov was called up to help stop the bleeding.

3) I’m running out of things to post, but trying to stay positive.

Oh to see this again.

The only conclusion is COME BACK, MIKE.  Obviously the world needs you.

Hi there, stranger.

15 Nov

While we have been busy with Mikey getting hurt and Tyler Seguin pouring it on and James Neal scoring daily, the Blackhawks are the #1 team in the NHL with 25 points (11-4-3).

Tazer was the NHL’s Third Star for last week, with two 2-goal games to help the Hawks win three in a row.  Jon has a team-leading 9 goals plus 6 assists on the season.

Here’s Jon talking about the 4-1 in over Calgary [link] and 6-3 over Edmonton [link].  How does no one mention the giant orange microphone?  It looks like a sneaker and it’s practically up his nose.  At least he smiles (eventually) – I almost fell asleep listening to that deep voice spouting sports cliches.

And just in time for the holidays, this perfect gift for (me) all your friends (me).  They should come as a 2-pack or buy-one-get-one or something.  And Kaner should have a mullet.


Now get to it and vote Tazer for the All-Star Game.  Maybe he’ll get picked really late in the draft again and we can make fun of him for daysever.

Not this again.

Mikey Monday: Blustery Day

17 Oct

It’s a really slow day and this picture has been lurking around my inbox forever.  Dawn sent it, presumably trying to impress us with Ovi’s shorts.  Or because he’s wearing a Coach’s Corner t-shirt.

But all I see is this.

Am I wrong?  There’s this:

And this.  I could go on all day.

Mike has 2 points in 4 games and the Caps are undefeated.  They play the Panthers tomorrow night, so let’s hope they keep this little streak alive.

Is it October yet?!

29 Sep

In another edition of players we can only like until the season starts… Ryan Kesler will appear nude in ESPN Magazine’s “The Body” issue.

More than 20 athletes will do the soap opera strategically-cover-your-business to pose for the annual issue – here’s the list [link].

Kes wanted to get a jump on the competition, so he posed with a fan.  This is like Chuck Norris selling the BowFlex – what a crock.  Some people are just born this way.  Kes spends more time on that hair than these abs and you, normal man in glasses, can only hope to warm your flab in the glow of his superhuman abilities.

Not that Kes does’t pay the price:

Whoever lived in my apartment before us still gets ESPN Magazine, and to that stranger I say thanks.  You could have cleaned behind the fridge before you left but I will accept this subscription instead.

Your Dreams, Come True

29 Sep

It’s like Christmas, when you wake up to presents and the high likelihood of someone getting drunk and being publicly inappropriate!

Patrick Kane is on Twitter: @88PKane


We believe that Kaner has grown up (not too much!) and probably won’t suffer from what I like to call “Don’t Drink and Hockey.”  Symptoms include having to TweetWipe your entire profile the morning after, losing the shirt you’re sure you wore into the bar and maybe even getting blocked my someone.  Someone important.

Not that I’ve done that or anything.

Supreme fangirl party time would reign if Kane just Tweeted about Toews all the time:

OMG Jon is so grumpy when he wakes up. #captainPMS

Taaazzer locked me out cuz is past 9 going to sleep in this plant night guyz. #afterthepartyitsthehotellobby

PKane will also try his luck centering the Blackhawks second line, as opposed to winging for Jonathan Toews.  The coaching staff have been considering it for some time [link].  Kaner played at centerlast night in the Hawks 4-3 win over Detroit (sorry Gator).  He had a goal and an assist – but Toews also had a point on both plays, so I assume Kane was on the wing for those shifts.  My cable is out, so correct me if I’m wrong!

We’ll let you know how it looks on Sunday when the Hawks play the Caps!

This Photo Needs No Words.

A bromance is born - True THAT! I told you - EVERY ONE loves Ovi.

Thanks Puck Daddy! I feel you Kessler. Ovi has that effect on EVERYONE. You can’t help it. It’s OK. He’s magical. We won’t tell if you dry hump his leg. Kris Letang couldn’t help himself either. And Kris Letang is super hot too! He fell under Ovi’s magical spell. Look out BizNasty – you’re next!
