NHL Media Tour Reception

8 Sep

It’s obviously a tough time for everyone in the wake of the KHL plane crash, and I think NHL.com did a nice job of highlighting last night’s Media Tour reception with a really toned-down video [link].  Kudos to them.

Squishy: "So they pose like this...." Shane: "No, the mannequin's hand is higher."

There are quick shots of Kaner, Ovi, Shane Doan, Squishy, Corey Perry, Logan Couture (short hair!) and his girlfriend and even Intern Jeff Skinner, who took our advice and wore short sleeves to show off his manly arms.

As usual though, Steven hogs the spotlight.  The guy can’t help it!  his hair is too long, he needs Gator to iron his shirt and he doesn’t even do anything in this video, but if you can resist him you might be a robot.

The best thing about this, of course, is that it means October is right around the corner.

Blackhawks Weekend

26 Jul

This weekend’s breaking news: Jonathan Toews brought a girl to a baseball game.  Even the Chicago sports announcers were fangirling.

In a related story, it wasn’t us.

We’re not going to post photos of Jon’s date – let’s not be those girls.  Plus Intern Jeff Skinner reads this blog and we’re not sure he can handle it.  You can Google her if you like.  Suffice to say that Kaner is *really* jealous somewhere in Upstate NY.

What we will post is the fantastic work of Roving Reporter Veronica from the 2011 Blackhawks Convention.

Kaner rocking the tan and that salmon shirt.

Mike Green is jealous of this.

My dentist is jealous.

Veronica obviously had a great time.  She says the Hawks Convention is a must for any fan… which clearly means us.  WUYS road trip next year.  And that Chicago pizza… we may never leave.  Veronica lives in Raleigh and has ‘Canes season tickets, so she’ll also be keeping an eye on Intern Jeff Skinner for us.  Don’t let him drink the Mexicola, it gives him the giggles.

And now, for the Best Photo Award.  How could you not want this face to lead you to victory?

Worry Warts Invade WUYS HQ. Solution: Your Magical Mojo.

27 Apr

Habs beat the Bruins last night to force a game 7…tonight.

Pens face-off against the Lightning in game 7…tonight.


Needless to say this is a very stressful day in the WUYS office.  Not even a breakfast of warm toasty bagels and whipped cream cheese courtesy of Intern Jeff Skinner could make us feel better.

Intern of the Year.

We’re worried.

Worried that tonight, two of our beloved teams will be eliminated from the playoffs in heartbreaking fashion.  I, for one, don’t know if my heart can handle it.  I don’t want it to be like 2010…or 2009 again for the Bruins.

And Pants – who knows what she’ll do if she can’t see this anymore…

We’re worried that our praise-filled posts will come to an end and that our fans will be deprived of all our awesomely funny and clever musings.

We’re worried that we’ll have to find another team on which to lavish our hockey love.  Frankly, we don’t want to.  We’re not ready to give up just yet.

Dawn is all up on us to cheer for the Capitals.  She tried to win us over by sending us photos of Ovechkin in his man thong.  Hun, it ain’t working.  Not to say that we won’t cheer for the Caps.  Eventually, we might (we do love Mikey) but we don’t even want to think about that just yet.

But like the good Red Sox fans we are, we believe.

And we need you to believe too!

So to all of our loyal readers out there, we are asking you to please send all your good vibes, positive thoughts, magical mojo to the Penguins and Bruins tonight as they strive to keep their Stanley Cup hopes alive.  Call your hockey prayer circle ASAP!

It’s time to rally ’round the family…with pockets full of goals!
