Foxy Friday: 2 for the price of 1!

22 Apr

Time and time again, Foxy Friday has proven to be a good luck charm to many an NHLer.

You get featured on this blog, good things happen.  It’s a fact.

It is also a place where we can recognize the exceptional feats of athletic awesomeness of those players who do big things when it matters the most.

I was all set to feature just one player in this week’s post, but I just couldn’t choose between these both very deserving guys.

I said, “Forget you! I’m gonna get wild and pick TWO Foxy Fridays!”

So, this week’s Foxy FridayS are:

Michael “Cool” Ryder and Duncan “Teeth” Keith

Foxy Friday #1

Dear Michael, you are foxy for the following reasons:

  • You have the sun-kissed locks of a golden god.
  • You are very Nordic looking despite being from Bonavista, Newfoundland.  Are there lots of Vikings there we didn’t know about?  You look like you should be pillaging Iceland with Eric Northman from “True Blood”.
  • For finally showing us that “sniper shot”  and “scorer’s touch” that everyone is always talking about.  And just at the right time, athankyou.
  • For having a 3 point night (2 goals, 1 assist) in a crucial game for the Bruins, including the game winner 1:59 into OT. 
  • For being the 1st ex-Canadien to score a playoff overtime winner in Montreal.
  • For tying the series at 2 a piece and giving the Bruins the chance to play another day.
  • For looking really adorbs in a knit hat. {see how cute here}
  • For faithfully reading our blog.  We knew it was you creeping all up on our posts.  You may not comment but we see your IP address.

Time to visit my favorite website! Those girls from WUYS are brill!

I feel so much better in this sweater. The red and blue one was itchy. Like a hair shirt.

And for Foxy Friday #2…

Dear Duncan, you are foxy because:

  • You had 2 goals and 2 assists last night to stave off elimination YET AGAIN. Like Hansel, you are “so hot right now.
  • You have really good hockey hair.  Seriously good.  The way it peeks out from under your hat…*sigh*
  • You single-handedly embarrass Roberto Luongo, take him out of the game, and make his playoff beard throw up little white flags of surrender. (Thanks @CoachQsMustache!)
  • Play exceptionally well despite the injury to your defense partner (and platonic life partner) Brent Seabrook.  It’s like peanut butter with no jelly.  Ketchup with no mustard.  Peaches with no Herb.  It hurts, we know, but it’ll be okay.
  • In one photo you can look amazeballs and like someone we want to take home to our moms AND also do very bad things too.  On the other hand, you can look like a meth-head, redneck, hillbilly from the Ozarks.  See evidence below.  We like the dichotomy.  It makes it exciting!

Shiny.

Dirty.

Congrats to Ryder and Keith for being dual Foxy Friday honorees today! Like Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock said…It takes TWO to make a thing go right!

Mock All-Star Draft: WUYS Style

27 Jan

Now what kind of hockey bloggers would we be if we didn’t do our own Mock Draft for NHL All-Star Game?  Terrible ones, that’s what kind.

Just to preface, this draft was conducted via Gmail chat and remained mostly civil and professional, with the exception of when Pants drafted Sharp and when Chuck drafted Letang.  Choice , colorful language was used.  There were threats of violence and the removal of earrings and press-on nails before engaging in a girly slap fight.  We learned how from watching Mike Green.

And these guys…

Pants vs. Chuck

We used a very highly scientific method of selecting these teams, which included not only their obvious talent and season performance thus far, but also how awesome their hair/beards are.

So here you go…

Team Pants vs. Team Chuck


TEAM PANTS
(aka Team Staal)

TEAM CHUCK
(aka Team Lidstrom)

Forwards: 

Forwards: 

  • Patrick Kane
  • Martin St. Louis (SQUISHY!)
  • Steve Stamkos
  • Daniel Sedin
  • Henrik Sedin
  • Rick Nash
  • Brad Richards
  • Matt Duchene
  • Paul Stastny
  • David Backes
  • Anze Kopitar
  • Claude Giroux
Defensemen: 

  • Mike Green (would have drafted him first, obvs)
  • Duncan Keith (aka Duncan Teeth)
  • Dustin Byfuglien
  • Marc Staal
  • Erik Karlsson
  • Brent Burns
Defensemen: 

Goalies: 

  • Marc-Andre Fleury
  • Cam Ward
  • Jonas Hiller
Goalies: 

So based on this mock draft, who do you think will win this year’s All Star Game? Who will be the MVP?

Chuck suggested that Brent Burns should dye his beard black a la Brian Wilson of the SF Giants.  Thus it only makes sense he would be on Pants’ team.  FEAR THE BEARD.  And we’re not talking about that Amish nonsense the Staal boys grow during playoffs.

Brian Wilson
(the baseball player)

Brent Burns
(the hockey player)
