Reasons Why I Love…the Chicago Blackhawks #2.

Hello, all. Sorry it’s been a while…I’ve been working like crazy over break! Luckily I was able to watch the Caps game tonight, which we won! Fehr scored on a tip in with under a minute to go in the third to give us the lead. My throat still hurts from screaming.  Also, Mike Green got his 200th career assist and 300th career point! Way to go Greenie! I’m glad to see he’s doing much better.  In other news, I could do without Erskine on our team.

BACK TO THE TOPIC! I was looking at my Caps Canine calendar (lol alliteration. I’m a nerd)., which reminded me of some Tumblr posts I saw of Jonathan Toews rolling around on a couch with a pitbull (I died), did some investigating, and found that the Hawks did a puppy calendar of their own. So without further ado, here’s a couple of my favorite pics from this adorable photoshoot. [[Edit: I just read that this is an all pitbull calendar with the Hawks, which benefits Bryan Bickell and his wife’s foundation that promotes pitbull awareness! Too cute! I’ll link the article at the end.

Aww, Benny is just too cute!

Now this right here is the key to my heart. Puppies and hockey players?!?! What more could a girl want!

duncs

That dog looks so happy to be chillin with Duncan Keith.

And now…my favorite… (:

toews

This is the cutest freakin thing I’ve ever seen ever.  I’m quite the fan of shirtless Toews, but playful puppy wrestler Toews? He takes the cake.

toewss

I’ve said it 1000 times in this article and probably 100000 times overall on FTLOH, but I can’t help it… It’s just TOO CUTE (:

Well, that’s all for now! If you want to read the snippet from the USA Today article/see the pic of Bicks and his pup that I left out, here’s the link! >> http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/01/chicago-blackhawks-2014-puppy-calendar/  Also, the adorable Toews puppy pics are credited to the lovely blog, hockeyplayerswithpets.tumblr.com! I suggest you check it out, it’s a super cute blog! Hope you all enjoyed! Have a great night!

Reasons Why I Love…the Chicago Blackhawks #1.

Prepare yourselves…for the greatest video ever ever ever!

BLACKHAWKS SING-ALONG HOLIDAY ALBUM VIDEO. FROM BHTV! And if for some reason it doesn’t work…here is the link…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR6mhS0KUq4

OKAY COMMENTARY IS A GO!

  • Bolly’s song doesn’t even make sense. I like his dance.
  • Sharpie can’t sing hahaha…but he’s cute! And his snapping was pretty in sync.
  • Whoever came up with these is so clever. My favorite hockey player is Duncan Keith totally sounds like “all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.”
  • Seabs hat is…cool.
  • “It wouldn’t be the holidays without professional hockey players singing in perfect key!” …Cue Marian Hossa. Wearing a Santa hat with pigtails off the end. (:
  • Nick Leddy was singing waaaaay too fast. And he looks like a bug.
  • I love how John Scott is dancing and then stops to say his name.
  • FROLIK NAVIDAD IS MY MOST FAVORITEST THING EVER. I’VE BEEN SINGING IT ALL DAY.
  • Frolik reminds me of a cleaner-looking Ovechkin.
  • Patrick would. He’s never going to stop doing the Kaner shuffle now. AND WHAT’S WITH THE SPIN AND POINT THING? It’s so corny.
  • Lepisto, Lepisto, Lepisto!
  • “Deck Jamal and you’ll be sorry…Fa la la la laaaa la la la la!”
  • I LOVE JELLY. I love the little turn around head snap and the dance moves and the singing.
  • Tazer’s face. He was probably like, yeah right I’m not singing! It’d  be funny if he did though.
  • I wish this album were real. I’d totally buy it.

Well yeah. This is it for today. Hope you guys have an awesome Christmas and such and hopefully the Caps can win tonight!

Stuff.

Hello friends. So, since I was here last, the Washington Capitals continue to be up and down. It seems like the only win against Canadian teams, no? At least these days they do. Sid the Kid is back on IR, everrrrrryone has a concussion, Cody Eakin is back in Hershey, Papa K is about to play his 1000th game tonight, little Swede is playing his 100th, Nick is 2 goals away from 100 career goals, Neuvy’s got a little swagger back, Chicago is doing awesome lately, Edmonton is doing quite the opposite, and yeah.

I feel like sharing pics today, though. Not in a talking mood. I feel like that ^^ summed it up pretty well and if I missed anything, well, I’m sure you guys already heard about it.

Tooooons of pics and gifs. Here we go.

Grrr. Tyler Bozak says, “click on me! You won’t regret it!” (:

So, I’m wondering when they’ll call up my Braden. I know he hasn’t been doing that great recently, but, I miss this face! And I’m deeply saddened by the fact that I had an opportunity to meet this lovely man and probably walked right by him in search of Jonathan Toews. Shame on me! Granted, that was a once in a lifetime thing, because really, when would I ever meet JToews again? Who knows! And daily I look at the picture on my dresser and do the happy dance because that was the best day ever. But enough about me…I MISS YOU BABY GOALIE.

So, HBO 24/7 has restarted, and I watched it even though I dislike these teams. But they’re honestly really funny. I love Bryz.  He’s so…thoughtful and different and I just want to adopt him. And Anisimov. And Callahan’s grandma.

Yesterday, the Washington Capitals and the Wizards and Mystics delivered presents to kids in the DC area. And someone was kind enough to take a picture walking behind Wardo, Carly, and Nicky, and post it on Tumblr, where I took it to share with you people. You’re welcome. (:

This is the best thing I’ve ever seen. Eaks is like, “Derp.” And Nick is like, “Ignore him. Ignore him. Ignore him.” And sexy Stecksy is in the background talking to Chimmers so this must be camp last summer. But still. Eakin’s face is priceless.

I give to you…hipster Eakin and a lion. Eaks looks cute with the hat and glasses! But any other time he’s just eh.

Guess what…we’re still not done! I’m so generous today!

 You must click on this. It’s a reason why Jordan Eberle and I are meant to be. And if you aren’t good at reading lips, he says, “I love to nap.” I LOVE TO NAP TOO! Napping is like, my favorite thing ever. Other than hockey, of course. But still. We’re soul mates. (:

Okaaay, one more I promise.

Mike Green and child. That kid looks so happy. I’d be happy too. By the by Michael, do you only own ONE sweater? I swear he was wearing that when I met him last season. With some glasses and loafers. Typical Mike.

Okay, so I was going to end it, buuuuuut I just realized there’s no Jonathan Toews in this little spam of randomness and that is not acceptable. So here you go. Jonathan Toews. (:

Aw, that’s better. I’ll never forget you again, Captain Serious (:

Well, that concludes today’s…random post of randomness. Hope you enjoyed it! Let’s go Caps tonight! And during intermission I’ll be running into my room to watch the Hawks/Pens game! Go Blackhawks! Yay!

You Guys Crack Me Up.

Seriously…you do. I noticed that in the past week, the most searched topics that led you all to my blog were “so and so” shirtless. Jonathan Toews especially. Good lord, he’s popular…

  • Jonathan Toews Shirtless
  • Toews Shirtless
  • Jonathan Toews without a shirt on
  • Jonathan Toews sexy
  • Jonathan Toews smiling
  • Jonathan Toews gif

Too funny. And then we have other assorted players, such as Brooks Laich, Mike Green, Viktor Stalberg, Nicky Backstrom, Jordan Staal…yadda yadda yadda. Some of the searches scare me…like Nicklas Backstrom’s girlfriend?! As far as I know he doesn’t have one. I know his brother does because he’s on Twitter and tweets all day long and it doesn’t really make sense but it’s so funny.

SPEAKING OF TWITTER…BRADEN HOLTBY HAS A TWITTER! HOLTS170! I found this out while I was working, and started smiling like crazy. My life is almost complete. Now all I need is Nicky and then BAM. I can die happy.

Anywhom, Caps lost their first game. I didn’t watch it because I was tired and had to get up early, but I do know we got like a billion penalties which isn’t cool. But it’s whatever. We’ll kick some Canuck butt!

Shirtless hockey men? I’ll see what I can do… (:

He  looks so derpy! This is supposed to be a gif. ):

It’s not the whole…chest area…but he’s still hot, yes? Yes.

So, so yummy. Okay. Shirtless man numero uno is done…now…

Mike getting tattedd. Yummmmmy.

I Laich this. (; His arms are just…just so…mmmm.

Helllooooo Michael del Zotto…

Well I think that’s enough for the night. Hopefully that’ll hold you over for a while (: Goodnight all!

Tazer Tuesday #1!

The amount of views I get on Jonathan Toews-related things is absolutely insane. So, my fellow Jonathan lovers, you have inspired me to start a new series of posts that I’ve dubbed “Tazer Tuesday”. Basically every Tuesday, I shall not exactly bombard, but just share a handful of pictures, gifs, videos, articles…whatever I can dig up on the lovely Blackhawk captain since he is in such a high demand.

 I also may start assigning other things I’ve done in the past, like HPAA’s or RWIL’s to certain days. Maybe start doing HPAA’s with just a single player or something like that. And I’ll be sure not to just do Capitals and Blackhawks, although I am partial to those teams and their good-looks… (;

But anyway, I hope you enjoy your Tazer Tuesday, and some lovely/funny gifs that I have found for the occasion. (Just a friendly reminder, click on it if it’s not moving since gifs and I don’t always get along on here…)

Of course THIS gif would not move. Ladies, I assure you you’re going to want to click on it…it’s Tazer like you’ve never seen him before! (I also appropriately saved this gif in my Jonathan folder as “Dat Ass” (: )

I love this one…it’s so him. I’m obviously very excited is also my new catchphrase, which I of course say in a monotone voice with quite a serious look on my face. That’s the only way you can do it.

Aw, this one’s cute. ): Why don’t gifs like me?!

Confused Jonathan is confused. Okay. I’m done with gifs for the day…only because I don’t remember which ones I’ve used and which I haven’t, and if they’ll even work.

But before I leave…because I see it’s been a popular search topic, I shall share a photo with you. (:

SHIRTLESS JONATHAN. It’s not completely satisfying, because you can’t see his abs and all of that, but it’s something! Those arms, good lord, they’re so lovely! That arm has been around my back. Around? That sounds weird. On? “That arm has been on my back.” Sounds weird too. Oh, whatever. You get what I mean…I think. To clarify, when we met, his arm was around me, and mine him. There. That makes sense. I’m going to stop now… Okay. It won’t stop striking through my words. I’m going to leave now. HAPPY TUESDAY 🙂

Any Folks In Chicago Want To Adopt Me?

I’ll clean. And I make some kickass cookies if I do say so myself.

Why the need to live in Chicago? So I can attend the Blackhawks Convention. Even though I missed this years convention. I’d still like to go to training camp…maybe get a job with the Hawks. Like, and interviewer. That would be grand.

Today was day two of the convention, and in my eyes the fun day. From Joey the Junior Reporter to “Most Wanted” panels, it sounds like Chicago hockey fans had an awesome day. Especially, if they got to witness this…

http://video.blackhawks.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=894&id=120907&navid=DL|CHI|home (click on it, you’ll enjoy. I promise.)

PATRICK ACTUALLY DID THE KANER SHUFFLE. And it was lovely. I laughed so hard watching it. It’s really hard not to have a big goofy smile on your face while watching it, no matter how many times you see it, or even if you witnessed it in person. All the girls in the audience were like, “ahh!” Twas the best.

And now, a few pictures, thanks to some lovely people off Tumblr who posted them. Of course, there are others floating around in other places, but I rely on Tumblr because of the large number of Hawks fans I follow.

I love love LOVE this man. He’s the definition of adorable. Corey Crawford, you’re so awesome.

Man of the hour? I don’t like Kaner’s haircut. Too short for my liking.

 Something about him… He just looks, so much better than he normally does. Seabs and Duncs have the second cutest bromance on this team. (:

Viktor… *drool* Is there a rule somewhere that says “All Swedish men have to be incredibly good-looking” ?? Because I swear…Swedish guys…they’re just perfect.

And lastly…the one you’ve(ladies) allllll beeeeeen waiting for, I know.

TAZER (: So handsome.

Whoever took this…I love you. I will love you forever. Because this right here ^^ is the best thing I’ve ever seen. I’m most definitely using it in future posts…when necessary (and because I make the decisions around here, it shall be necessary 24/7 (: )

Well. That’s the end of that. Whenever someone, be it the Hawks website or someone on youtube, posts the panel videos, I shall make sure to post them in a later…post. Hope you got your Toews/Blackhawk fix everyone! See ya!

NHL Draft, Round One.

I keep putting off the NHL Awards post, and I apologize. But today was too crazy not to talk about it. So first, I just want to quickly talk about some cute guys that were drafted today, because, talking about cute hockey players and posting their pictures is my specialty (;

First on the list…Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

I really wish I could find their pictures in their suits, but I can’t since they haven’t been posted yet, so, oh well. I love Edmonton now. Their team is really young, and really really cute. He’s a great fit there.

Gabriel Landeskog oh my goodness. You. Are. So. Swedish. And. Adorable. I really just want to collect all of the Swedes that play hockey. With the exception of the Sedin brothers. But seriously, hockey playing Swedes are so attractive! And Gabriel went to the Avalanche, whom I already like because of Matt Duchene. That’s so much better than him going to like, the Penguins.

This isn’t the best picture, but it’s Ryan Murphy. He went to the Hurricanes, so if/when he plays on the team us Caps fans will see a lot of him!

And now, my favorite NHL prospect of the year. The absolutely adorable…

TYLER BIGGS ❤ Too cute for words. I may have to root for the Leafs whenever he plays for them/go to a Caps and Leafs game.

Okay. Enough of that. Major things to discuss.

1. Washington didn’t pick in the first round. Why? WE GOT TROY BROUWER FROM CHICAGO! This (Chicago trading him) would’ve made me sad if he went to another team, but he’s a CAPITAL! You don’t understand, I LOVE Troy. He’s funny, he has Stanley Cup Playoff experience, he’s a big hitter, a good leader, and he can score some goals. I think he’s just what we need.

2. Everyone is freaking out that now the Caps will have to get rid of Brooks. I honestly have no idea what’s going to happen with him. All I know is that if for some reason he can no longer be a Capital, I will seriously cry. Like, actual tears. I love that Canadian. What would Mike do without him?!

3. BRIAN FUCKING CAMPBELL AGREED TO GO TO THE PANTHERS. WHAT SOUPY?!?!?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! :\ I guess the only “good” thing out of this is that perhaps I’ll be able to see more of him. That’s really sad though. Soupy + Joey the Junior Reporter = best thing ever. The Hawks will miss you, Brian. )’:

4. Apparently, it’s pretty definite that Max Talbot will not be a Penguin next season. Now the question is, where will he go? What if he became a Cap? AND WHAT IF BROOKS BECAME A PENGUIN?! I’d still love Brooksy. He’s just so lovable.

I guess that’s it for the day. It’ll be interesting to see how tomorrow unfolds. But now I need sleep. Goodnight hockey fans.
