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!


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

And now…my favorite… (:


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.


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!

October 2nd, Mark Your Calendars.

THE HAWKS ARE COMING BACK TO WASHINGTON FOR A PRESEASON GAME! I’m quite excited, if you couldn’t tell. I mean, I don’t know when tickets go on sale or how much they’ll even be, but I’m still psyched. They better go to Kettler so I can have a part two of seeing/meeting/touching/hearing Jonathan Bryan Toews. That would make my life. Of course, I still have to meet my favorite Swede Lars Backstrom. That’s my top priority for the season, and perhaps meeting Braden if he’s around. But to see Jonathan again would just kill me.

So, approximately three weeks until development camp at Kettler! I wonder who will attend besides our draftee and Mattias. He shall now be dubbed Mattie, which means I need a new name for Matty P. I’ll think of something eventually.

So, there’s been more talk to Varly leaving/staying. I have no idea what’s going on with him these days. And I have no idea what’s happening with other guys on our team, like Brooksy. On July 1st, things will start going down.

I suppose that’s all I have for now. Nothing too exciting going on, no pictures to share. Sorry if I bore you. Thursday you can definitely expect an interesting post since it’ll be the day after the awards. Yay awards! I believe Mike and Hendy are up for awards…maybe even Tazer. I forgot. We shall wait and see. Be good, WordPress.

It’s Varly’s Birthday!

Awww Varly, my unibrowed Russian goaltender ❤ Happy Birthday kiddo! I can’t believe you’re younger than Neuvy. Michal has a little kid face. He looks like he’s 12. Little Neuvykid (: But this isn’t about him, it’s about Semyon. Now, I know I’ve said in the past that I would be okay if he left for the KHL because then I could see Braden anytime I’d like to, however, I’d probably shed a tear or two if he left us. He’s a really good goalie when he’s in the zone and not getting injured. But whatever. Have fun today, little Russian! Don’t party too hard-y. (:

Speaking of Braden, he has returned! And he brought friends (: Andrew Gordon(when he gets better), Mathieu Perreault, Steve Pinizzotto, and Patrick McNeill! Yay! I haven’t seen Braden in a little over a month, and it’s been quite a while since I’ve seen my Matty P ❤ I hope they get to play at least once. If not, they better be at Kettler every single day there is practice. I neeeeed to meet them. Braden and Mathieu especially.

Now, time for something really sad. The Hawks unfortunately lost to the Canucks in overtime ): That means the season is over for them. ))): That means no more Jonathan Toews until the NHL Awards, and then September. ))))))): Sad, isn’t it? Just watch his interview. Broke my heart.  http://safe.tumblr.com/safe/video/4983404198/500 Here’s a link from Tumblr, but I’m sure if that doesn’t work it’s on the Blackhawk website. His eyes were glossy, couldn’t you tell? My poor little Jonathan. This interview reminds me so much of Alex last year when the Capitals were eliminated the first round by the Habs…except Tazer talks a little more than he did.

But, I have to stay positive. The Caps are still in it. And my Hershey boys are here. I believe this team is going far this year. I really do.

Tonight is Game 7 for the Pens/Bolts and Habs/Bruins. I want the Habs and Bolts to win, although I guess it doesn’t really matter that much. I just want the Caps to do well against whomever they play, and that’s that.

Well, I suppose that’s all for now. (: See ya WordPress!

Reasons Why I Love…Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan #1.

This video ❤ I absolutely adore Bobby Ryan and Ryan Getzlaf, even if Getzlaf is balding ): At least his face is still pretty. Bobby Ryan is still pretty too. Even with whatever is going on with his face. And the fact that he says “bud” like 1000 times in this video.

Oh, that video. Those two. They look like they have a little bromance going on, eh? Besides the whole USA-Canada thing, they definitely are bff’s. I can tell. Or not. I tried looking for a good picture, and couldn’t come up with anything. Oh well.

So, my Bears are officially out of the AHL playoffs. Which means I’m rooting for the Charlotte Checkers now, even if they just beat my boys in Hershey. I like the Checkers, especially Bobby Goepfert. He’s hysterical. Follow him on twitter if you have one? …GeffMan47. I promise that’s him. Well, I actually don’t know for sure, but I’m 99.9% positive it is.

Because the Bears are out of the playoffs, it also means Washington has the opportunity to call down some extra guys, if needed. I say we call down Braden and Andrew Gordon, but that’s just me. (:

Speak of the Ducks, they’re out of the NHL playoffs ): But I’m glad the Preds could make it through a round for the first time ever. Good for them.

My Hawks are going to game 7! ❤ I love Ben Smith. He’s just so awesome.

The Penguins play tonight. …LET’S GO LIGHTNING!

I’m out of things to say for today. But for some reason I feel like posting a picture, so I will.

I lied. It’s a gif of this one really unattractive guy that I’ve never met before in my life, Jonathan Toes, or whatever it is. …Just kidding. It’s super handsome Jonathan Toews that I met a month ago ❤ Yeah, I still think about that awesome day from time to time and smile, sue me. (: Okay. So, I think in order to it to move, you need to click on it. My apologies. I don’t know why this always happens, but, whatever. I’m sure you still enjoy it even if it isn’t moving. I know I do (;

[[Edit: Also, please note the video is the NHL’s, not mine, and also the gif is not mine. It says, “fuckyeahpens87” in the corner. I just noticed that. I wanted to point out that that is most definitely not me. And whoever you are, mysterious Penguin fan that happens to share a love of the always handsome Jonathan Toews with myself, if for some reason you come across this and are not happy with me for posting it, just say the words and it shall be gone. However I doubt you’d ever read this…it’s all pro-Capitals (: Okay. That’s it. Thanks all!]]

Well This Sucks.

I definitely just posted something last night, and it never showed up. ): Oh well. I’ll try this again.

Hello again world! How goes it? I have returned from my vacation, and it was awesome, but I’m happy to be home blogging and what not. Lets do a little catching up, shall we?

  • Caps made it to round two! ❤ I’m proud of them.
  • Neuvy is a boss. I love that kid.
  • Detroit is in the second round as well after sweeping the Coyotes.
  • The Checkers are beating Hershey in a series 3 games to 2. They play tonight. Hopefully our defense and Braden will be good.
  • I’m still mad about the thing not posting because I have no idea what I talked about yesterday.
  • Bobby Ryan had this really awesome goal the other night against the Preds. They unfortunately lost though. ):
  • Pittsburgh got destroyed yesterday. 8-2? What a joke. I wonder how Crosby feels knowing he can’t really do much about it. Oh well.
  • Chicago plays tonight ❤ I hope they can tie it up 3-3. I’m extremely happy they’ve made it this far. Everyone thought that Vancouver would sweep them. Oh well Canucks!
  • If Buffalo wins tonight, we play them next round.
  • I don’t think I have anything else to say, really. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll do a RWIL or something like that. Maybe a new Bromance. I’ll think about it.
  • Anyways, Happy Easter guys and gals! See you soon!

This Is Goodbye…

…for now. Hello world. I just felt like letting you know that this is my last blog for about a week. I’m going on vacaaaation! I might possibly blog once, if the wordpress iPod app works. We shall wait and see.

2-0 bitches!!! How you like that, New York? Sean Avery, you little punk. And Fedotenko. I don’t care if your last name is really awesome Ruslan, you STILL don’t attack Mike Green every chance you get.

Michal was da bomb. I love that little Neuvy kid. And Erskine with that save when Neuvy was kind of far out of the goal. The best! I also liked Chimera’s goal. And Arnott’s too. Rebounds are awesome. “King Henrik” wasn’t really that great tonight. Oh well. I’m not the one complaining. 2-0 lead on the series is really awesome. I hope we can keep it up. I believe we can.

The Tampa Bay Lightning totally crushed the Penguins! I thought that was funny, especially because they just made a “History Will Be Made” video about Marc-Andre Fleury for his game the other night. And then he really sucked. You jinxed him, NHL. But I’m fine with that. Tampa Bay all the way! At least in the series. They don’t deserve to win it all. We do.

Chicago is currently losing ): I hope they can win tonight. Although every sports caster on every channel said they don’t think they’ll win tonight. I still have faith in them.

I like how the title about Washington on NHL.com is “Well Red”. (:

Well. I suppose that’s all for now. So proud of my team tonight. I love being a Washington Capitals fan ❤

Enjoy some lovely gifs of happy Capitals. Hopefully they work. Catch you later!

I was planning on updating like, tomorrow, but I can’t contain myself right now. CHICAGO IS IN!!! And according to James Dunthie, an “unnamed Blackhawk” screamed when the Wild got the empty net goal. No worries Jonathan Toews unnamed Blackhawk, I screamed as well (:

Happy Blackhawk spam <3<3<3 Like always, these are not mine unless otherwise stated, and if for some reason it is not moving, click on it and it shall move (: See you in a few days WordPress!!!!
