Not to brag, but…

15 Sep

While I was busy watching a Hugh Jackman movie last night, the Ghost in the Machine was drawing my fantasy hockey team.  I want this higher power to pick my outfits – look at this beauty!

When I named my team for Mike Green, that automatically meant I wouldn’t get him.  Happened last year with Getzlaf.  Good thing I didn’t name my team HOT DADS or I wouldn’t have gotten EStaal, Squishy, Ryan(e) Clow(e) or Cam Ward.

Pants is a good coach, and she babysits.

I won my fantasy league last year, thanks to a team build around EStaal.  I also had Clowe, Cam and Giordano – we’re just getting the band back together.  We mayneed a second bus for all our trophies: the Hart, Rocket Richard, Lady Byng and Letang’s solid-gold hair dryer.

I’d also like to nominate my team for Best Looking.  Just throwing it out there.  It won’t win us games, but it sure looks good in the handshake line.  Bet you can’t wait till it’s Team Photo day in the program!

Yes, there's a trophy for this too.

So, who wants Brodeur?

Intern Birthday Party!

16 May

Happy Birthday, Intern Jeff Skinner!  Instead of having you write your own birthday post, we wanted to make sure you feel completely appreciated by the girls of WUYS.  You are the best (um, only) intern we’ve ever had and while we don’t have to pay you, we can take a moment to remember the highlights of your season with us:

Your first day at WUYS (seven months ago):

That time you believed “media training” meant letting Pants and Chuck cut your hair:

That time Dawn asked you what Kris Letang wore under his gear at the ASG:

That time you charmed the entire world into asking you to the prom (even if Cassy had to windsor your tie).  SWAG:

That time everyone loved you, and you realized WUYS might be on to something here:

That time you scored a ton of goals, were generally incredible and still looked this excited every single time:

Your birthday party starts at 4 PM in the conference room.  Just as well you’re 19, we’ve got Mexi-Colas and Whatchamacallit bars for everyone.  Eric and Cam have RSVP’d and well, then we didn’t bother inviting anyone else.  Best party ever!

RE: Intern Jeff Skinner

Let’s be honest.  I got the internship here at WUYS because I was the only person qualified.  I mean, what kind of Craigslist ad asks if you’ve ever competed in figure skating and hockey?  How many people can say that?

The TV stations like to show my figure skating highlights a lot.  It’s kind of embarrassing (I am wearing tights), but Pants and Chuck love it.  If only they’d stop yelling, “Finger painting?!” while I’m trying to answer the phone.

Jazz hands

On Saturday I scored my 50th point of the season in a loss against Columbus.  I’d rather have a win, but the WUYS girls got me a really nice life-size canvas to hang in my apartment.

My Wolfpack

They also promised to watch my big game tonight against Buffalo on Versus (7 PM).  We really need to win so we can stay in the playoff race.  I haven’t been this stressed out since the parallel parking section of the driver’s test!  Pants and Chuck have scheduled a meeting so I can work on my staredown.

this is my serious face

Wish us luck tonight, and watch the game!

Everybody Loves All-Stars

12 Jan

Pretty much every team has posted their All-Stars’ reactions to being selected, so there are a ton of videos.  But I like this one best – it’s Team Dawn and Team Pants.  I think these two are the only Capitals NOT in a bromance, despite the enthusiasm of their on-ice hugging. [Video]  PS: I still hate the Caps.

Ovi, who cuts your hair?! Backstrom?

Mike laughs because he'd kinda scared.

Ovi wants to be on Mike’s team so he doesn’t have to check him.  But you know he kinda hopes to, just to see what everyone else is so excited about.

And I randomly picked the Lightning because Squishy made the ASG team.  Chuck and I think he is the besteset.  And I still think of him reading his NHL Awards speech off his PDA – presh.  Stammer is so blond, that could the power of their NHL Guardian.  Invisible due to lack of pigmentation. [Video]

You can't see me.

And the hometown boys, mostly because Eric Staal has a billion points for me this season.  He doesn’t smile once in this interview, while Cam Ward can’t stop.  How fun to play in front of your home crowd. [Video]

Captain Serious

Cam gets bonus points for starring in one of my fave commercials so far this season.  It’s just so southern!
