Awwwwwww, this makes me a little sad

This video is mostly adorable, but somewhat sad the way the smile fades from Burish's face so quickly, like, "hahahhaha, aww, I miss hockey." Also, hilarious that Toews doesn't sing at all and Kane is great at it. Who says he has no heart?

Jolly Old Guelph

Heading to an OHL game today in Guelph to see the Storm vs. the Knights. I am so excited about seeing the Knights, so many great hockey players have come from this program, including Rick Nash, John Taveres, and our very own Patrick Kane. I'm all about rooting for the home team when I visit places, but I really like the Knights.

Greetings from Hockeyland

I love that in Canada (well, at least Toronto), I can go in any bar and there is hockey on. Glad last night was a scoring frenzy for the boys, and I'm hoping Kris Versteeg gets well soon. Might go see an AHL game in Guelph on Tuesday, the tickets to the Boxing Day matchup between the Leafs and the Canadiens were untouchable, and I've got to get my hockey fix.

Oh yea! My husband gave me Blackhawks tickets for Christmas to go see them in Columbus in January. Best husband ever!!

Spank the wangs

If we play with as much intensity tonight as we did against the Sharks last night, we got it. The Wings are deep, but they're not that deep. They've got some top players out and we can whip them again in the Joe.

I'll be cheering them on at R Place downing a pitcher and eating some 35-cent wings. Or is that bad luck?

A Christmas Carol

O Holy Crap
The Blackhawks stars are shining
Oh, that's right.
We're the best team on the Earth.

Long have the fans
been waiting and been pining,
Hossa, Kane, Toews
What's our cap space worth?

A Huet save,
the 300 level rejoices
A Versteeg steal
And a glorious breakaway.

At the UC,
we applaud all through the Anthem,
Alright, third beer, I'm feelin' fine.

ALRIGHT! We're playoffs bound.

Merry Christmas guys.

Yea, yea, yea

I know. I suck at blogging. Maybe I'll quit my teaching job to blog full time.

  • Did you see Marian Hossa drop it like it's hot against the Bolts?!
  • Kane hit his head on the ice, but better be ready because I'm coming to Chicago for Wednesday against the Blues AND Friday against the Bruins, and I want to see him. Naked. Ok, sorry.
  • Holy crap, when Burish comes back our team is going to be SICK.
  • Fuck you, Redwings.
  • I want you to know that I was the single Blackhawks fan, and since three short years ago, I have converted my husband, his cousin, and our good friend. Blackhawks hockey is slowly taking over Louisville.
