Reasons Why I Love…the Capitals #7.

RWIL! Look at me posting all the segments with the abbreviations.  I’m on a roll.  Please watch this video from Monumental Network and enjoy the adorableness that is the Washington Capitals.


Bullets, anyone?

  • I hate Ovi’s mustache.
  • I love Ovi’s robot Christmas sweater.
  • Brooks is playing the drums and Greenie is playing guitar? Isn’t it normally the other way around? …JK I’m stupid Green isn’t even playing guitar that’s Troy…Green’s got that cowbell thing
  • Troy Brouwer is my fave.
  • Is that Volpatti playing guitar behind Wardo?
  • TW is looking cute like always.
  • Troy is just hitting the guitar…or is that a bass? IS HE SLAPPIN DA BASS?!?! Oh my gosh, I hope it’s a bass.
  • Erskine with the baby xylophone and Nick fist pumping with the tambourine…I can’t
  • I love the end where they show you what it actually sounded like…Ovi singing and la la la-ing is too cute

And that is that. Caps-Flyers tomorrow at 3…I would give an arm and a leg to be there, but I guess I’ll settle for the sports bar down the street from my school. Hope you enjoyed the video!

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!

Random Things.

Hello lovelies. Sorry I’ve been kind of…not here. And I didn’t post last Tuesday either. Again, sorry. But I’m here now with a picture or two and a link to a video of a handsome Cap! Shall we begin?

LOOK AT BROOKSY BACK IN THE DAY! THAT HAIR! I miss that hair so much. He was so cute. He still is, but, ):

Kind of far away, but, LOOK AT NICKLAS IN THE MIDDLE! LOOK AT THOSE ARMS! Mmmm my love has been working out this summer (; I was going to post this video of Nick doing an interview in Swedish where his arms and shoulders look really good, and so does his face…and hair…but it says it cannot be found, so for that, I apologize.

To make up for that I give you shirtless Ovechkin playing tennis. Unless you don’t like Alex like that. I personally don’t. His arms are lovely though.

And to end this little mini picture post type thing, I give you….

Marcus! Who also looks like he’s been working out. Less than a month until preseason! And a few weeks until rookie camp, and then a week after that starts regular camp, and then, like I said, preseason, and then regular season! YAY ((sorry for the amount of commas in that sentence. i’m too lazy and too tired to take them all out though so deal with it (: )) WELL. This has been a random Caps-based post. Enjoy your Monday.

Tons O’ Goodies.

That’s what I’ve got in store for tonight. Videos, news you’ve probably heard already, and all that other fun stuff.

First off, an NHL Award video that I adored.

This. Was too funny. I loved naked Ovi, and the “tell me about your first time” part with Sidney and Dupuis, who by the way, was signed for two more years. The announcer kind of gets on my nerves, and he told some lame jokes. Oh well. And what was up with the awful prompter readers? Really, NHL? A “real housewife”? Who called Martin St. Louis exactly what his name looked like. Someone should’ve said, hey it’s Mar-tan St. Louie. Oh well. This year sucked because there were no Capitals. But Jonathan was there with his mommy. And he made the best facial expressions, and the cameraman showed him practically the whole time. He probably thought he was attractive.

In other news, Brooks Laich is staying with Washington! I was so glad, because I definitely would’ve cried if they got rid of him. So we have Brooks and Brouwer and…whoever will go with them. I’m sure they’d be on a line together. Well, I don’t know. We shall see what’s going to happen.

GMGM said in an interview that if Varly doesn’t stay with Washington, Neuvy and Holtby will be our top two goalies. That fact makes me happy, even though I’d miss my Russian goaltender. But it’s whatever. I like Braden more.

I’m curious as to where Max Talbot is going to end up. Apparently Toronto wants him. That’d be cute, because he’d be with Army again. Which is Colby Armstrong, if you weren’t sure. Well scratch that. I just read on Twitter that’s probably not going to happen. I wonder if the Caps are looking into him. We need a badass forward who can score goals and hit people. As much as I dislike him (for being a Penguin and hating our team of course), we need someone like Max Talbot. End of story.

Speaking of the devils, the deal with Jagr and the Pens may be done tomorrow. I’m going to laugh so hard when he sucks.

The Islanders just got Christian Ehroff from Vancouver. Now with me originally being an Isles fan and also not knowing too much about Western Conference players that aren’t “big names” or on the Chicago Blackhawks or Phoenix Coyotes, I looked him up to see what he can do. And he’s apparently a 50 point per year type of guy, which I think is just what the Isles need. He also has recent playoff experience. It’s been ages since the Islanders have seen the playoffs. I think he’ll be good for the team. Maybe not this year or the next, but perhaps in the future NYI will be good again. I’m excited to see how they progress.

I’ve racked my brain of all news I can think of, and I believe that’s all I’ve got. So, until Friday perhaps, when all hockey hell breaks loose.

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.

Washington Capitals Picture Spam!

Hello there. ^^ See that title? I need one of these, before I absolutely lose it. Also, happy birthday to Mr. Brooks Laich, who is 28 today! Aw little Brooksy, getting so old. Perhaps he can get a contract for his birthday…or before July 1st so I don’t go off on GMGM for letting him go? But anyways, here we go.

D’aww. So sweet.

I miss this Swede so much I couldn’t even begin to explain. Come back Nicky. Right now.

Speaking of people who need to come back… 😛

My favorite bromance ever.

I feel like I only post pictures of Nicklas, Mike, or Braden. Not my fault they take great pictures. Look at those arms. I hope you stay in Washington long term, Holtby my dear. Or else, I’ll be needed a new license plate.

My Fab Four (: I can’t believe “Caps fans” want to trade these guys. Never, ever, ever. Because then I’ll just have to become fans of the team that they play for. Well, at least Nicklas. LNB19 forever <3. I sound like a middle schooler. I’ll stop now.

Speaking of following my favorite hockey players forever, let’s talk about Philly. I can’t believe they traded Richards! To keep Bryzgalov! He wasn’t thaaaat great in Phoenix. But man, they’re making major changes to that Flyers team. The Flyers are getting Brayden Schenn though. Cutie alert!

I know the Awards were yesterday. Or according to my stupid date thing on WordPress, two days ago. I’ll do a post dedicated to that perhaps tomorrow pre-draft. And then I shall talk about that over the weekend. Specifically the new Capital.

I leave you tonight with a video that I found on Tumblr. I’ve seen gifs about it but haven’t actually seen it in months. I’m 100% telling the truth when I say it brought tears to my eyes. You couldn’t even imagine how much I miss my team.

The beat dat beat up video! I love Ovi saying, just before they show Nick, “Oh, beat dat beat up!” And then Nick being embarrassed. Tom Poti looks so awkward. ❤ This is how I like seeing my team…all smiles. Goodnight now (:

Reasons Why I Love…Mike Green #2.

I talk about him so much, I’m surprised that this is only the second RWIL post about Mike. But anywho, here we go.

Yay, Caps Cribs, Greenie edition! Featuring the always handsome Brooks Laich! I shall do bullets based on this video, if you are too lazy to watch/are interested in my commentary.

  • This is obviously a little old, since Brooks doesn’t have long hair anymore, and Mike has some sort of condo now. Oh, and Brooksy has a house.
  • I wish Brooks still had long hair ):
  • They’re so bromantic it’s adorable.
  • How many times does Mike say “this one” talking about something? A few.
  • His brand name would be “banger”. Haha…yeah.
  • I like my hoodies too, Mike.
  • Gary the Bear :’)
  • This man is so beautiful.
  • Brooks makes the best comments.
  • “Baller watches”? Glasses inspired by Kanye? I don’t even want to know.
  • Brooks Laich is such a stud.
  • I love how even to this day he still plays Tiger Woods, except he’s replaced Brooks with his friend Paul.
  • I like the idea of a Brooksy singles website. However, I think he’s now taken. Good for you though, Brooks (:
  • I think I may have posted this video/did commentary on it before, but I don’t remember, and I was watching Caps vids on Youtube for the trillionth time and just figured I’d share one for all of my wonderful readers that love Mike so much.

So, yeah! Adios now, and have a good memorial day! Unless you’re from somewhere else, then…enjoy your Monday! (:
