Deep Dish!

20 Sep

I know I’ve been slacking!  Lindsay is all over this.

David Toews got swapped to the Blackhawks and has moved into Jonanthan’s apartment.  Sorry ladies, he’s in your spot.  Here’s Jon talking about how you can someday be a better roommate that Little Bro.  He even cracks a joke in this video – it makes him uncomfortable!  Adorkable! [link]

(Is it just me, or does Tazer sweat more than everyone else?  )

Patrick Kane has been practicing and scrimmaging, working on getting that surgically repaired left hand into playing form.  He’s got goals and assists, and looks pretty darned happy about it.  Kaner scored in a just-for-fun shootout and hammed it up for the crowd.  Someone please tell me “Rock You Like a Hurricane” is just on video and not actually playing in the arena.

And Patrick Sharp had an emergency appendectomy on Monday and is expected to be ready in 3-4 weeks.  Applications to nurse him back to health have forced the Chicago Post Office to shut down.  His pregnant wife is probably psyched because now she gets to eat all the ice cream.  Get well, Sharpie!
The Hawks open their pre-season against Edmonton tonight and if you can hack the IP address off your computer (or just live in Chicago), you can watch it on Blackhawks.com.

Foxy Friday….ermmm…not so much

12 Aug

So any of our loyal readers out there know that this blog – and this feature, in particular – tend to focus on the more beautiful aspects of the game of hockey.

Namely, the oily bo-hunks that play this game we love so much.

Patrick Sharp.  

Sidney Crosby.

Jonathan Toews.

Patrice Bergeron.

Patrick Sharp.

Oh wait, already said him.  Doesn’t matter!  He’s so hot, I had to mention him twice.

No no no. Too Sexy.

But for today’s Foxy Friday feature (yay alliteration!), I’m going a little crazy.

I’m going to veer of this highway of “hotness”…

…down the off-ramp…

For this week, and this week ONLY- Foxy Friday is going to known as…

Fugly Friday

Yah, that’s right.

These guys might not gracing the cover of GQ anytime soon, but they still play a pretty sick game of hockey.

Ian Laperriere

Is he face made out of silly putty?

Mike Ricci

Alex Ovechkin

Sorry, Dawn.  He’s an amazing hockey player, but really…I don’t get it.

Daniel Carcillo

Gerry Cheevers

The comb-over. The Jason mask. Not a good look for anyone.

So, do you have a player that you think should be on this list?  One who reminds you more of Sloth from ‘The Goonies” than Ben Affleck from “The Town” (FACT: BA never looked hotter that he did in that movie.  And I will fight anyone who disagrees.)

The 5 Year Plan

3 Aug

… move to Chicago.  Because this guy is sticking around.

Former Foxy Friday honoree Patrick Sharp signed a 5-year deal with the Blackhawks today (dollar amount not released).  I’d sign him to a 5-year contract with my fantasy hockey team for how many points he scored me last year.  He played 74 games, had 71 points and was 8th overall in goal scoring.  Also, his hair.

There’s really no point in Chicago Magazine running their “50 Most Beautiful Chicagoans” feature next year, unless some rule prevents Sharpie from being on the cover two years in a row.  Maybe Tazer could volunteer in his place, like The Hunger Games.

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?

Think Twice

22 Apr

IT WORKED!!  All your wishing and hoping and posting and Tweeting worked.  Whatever we did, it might have helped.  The Blackhawks are still in it.

They tore open a 5-0 lead in the second period on 2G and 1A each from Duncan Keith and Marion Hossa.  Patty Kane added one and thus went Roberto Luongo into the cold dark night for the second game in a row.

I need earmuffs for this.

Can you believe it?!  I’m trying not to get too excited, they’re still one win away from the brink of destruction.  But what a week it has been.  Duncan Keith is absolutely tearing it up, carrying the load for injured Brent Seabrook and plenty of other weight.  (And the ladies LOVE him.)

You know what HRH Queen Elizabeth II wanted for her 85th birthday, which was also yesterday?  Besides to stop hearing about the Royal Wedding and being asked to approve plates with Wills’ face painted on?

Duck, duck, SOUP.

Well she got it.  Now let’s see if we can get another one Sunday at 6:30 PM, when you’ll all be cracked out on Peeps and jellybeans and running around your house screaming about Tazer Cats.  We’re here for you.

Oh boy, OT!

7 Apr

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, they mean one like this:

If this isn't the best goal scoring face, I don't know what is.

Jonathan Toews, bless you.  I can barely keep my lunch down for all the stress I feel over the Blackhawks.  The OT loss in Montreal, with JT in the box, felt like a kick in the gut (PK Subban, never meet me in a dark alley).  I could not take another. Thankfully, Tazer saved the day.

I’m taking a moment to enjoy this.  To not think about home-and-home vs. Detroit to finish the season or the fact that Anaheim spanked the Sharks last night.  Dallas plays tonight and everyone (Kaner, Soup, Derpy and I) will be holding their breath.  Turco may even stop trolling for a minute.

Jonny looks as stressed out as I feel [video].  We’ll both feel a lot better when we see this again:

What does high score mean? Did I break it?

The Hawks have games Friday night and Sunday afternoon.  So cancel your weekend, there is hockey going on.

Century Mark

15 Mar

Six goals in one period is a lot.  And it’s exciting. Unless you’re the Sharks and it’s your opponents scoring five times.

The Blackhawks had won 8 in a row before losing three, including a SO and an OT.  Sharp had 4 assists (yes fantasy team!), Kane had his 100th career goal and Toews scored his 30th of the season.  Tazer continues his push for MVP, with his 23rd straight multi-point game.  The Hawks are 4th in the West, just 2 points behind San Jose.  It’s still all jammed up between you’re-in and you’re-out, and each game played in this last month will be huge.
