I'm going to the Devils-Rangers game tonight in NJ with my sis! :)

We were hoping they would be at MSG tonight just to add another arena to our collection, but the Rock is an incredibly fun place for hockey so no worries there. :)

YAY hockey!

I didn't want to wait till Wednesday

We're watching VH1s top artists of all time.. and Bruce Springsteen was on. I always think he's totally scraggly but still kinda hot. Then I noticed something.. he looked like a certain rugged hockey player that is also hot. SO without further ado, I give you a random hockey SAB.

I want to, I really dou

Hockey is about to matter again. YAY!

On the new jerseys- in general, I like them, but I think the yellow nameplates are ugly as heck and could do without the weird outlined numbers on the dark jerseys. I don't mind the funky stitching on the numbers though- that is kind of neat.

I feel like I have some poetic and meaningful post about hockey buried here somewhere but I can't quite say it yet. I've been a bit buried lately with work and a play that just ended and drama with our theatre group (haha insert pun here) and my sister leaving for Afghanistan in 2 weeks so it's there, I just can't find it. But I will. It's almost time for hockey again and I can feel it in the air and in my blood. It feels good. DAMN good.

And eventually I will make enough sense out of it to tell you more.

In the meantime, I'll be reading. :)

Can you smell the hockey?

It's almost hockey time. The leaves are starting to change, the air is cooler.. football is happening (who cares? not this kid.) and all of that means that hockey is just around the corner! YAY!!!!

As usual, I won't be attending Puck Drop. Not because I don't want to- believe me- I DO- but I always end up having something else to do that day. This year I think it's going to be parking cars at my brother-in-law's building in Palmyra for Canal Days or something of the sort. Whatev. I'm sure y'all will provide me with all the scoop on how fat Royzie got over the offseason and how snarky Drew Stafford was on twitter about the rookies, and how tall Tyler Myers still is, and how sad Thomas Vanek looks when he misses shots. I will happily read all the hockey chatter on the interwebs and re-live it through my fellow bloggers. :)

In preparation for the coming season, I wandered over to BlackhawksTV last night to hunt down Sharpie's summer visit with The Cup and was not disappointed. :) Yes, I still have my stupid dirty love for the 'Hawks and the Sharpster. (though with the trading of Adam Burish, my trifecta of hotness (never really went into that one- a different post for a different day) is now a duo- just Sharpie and Seabs.) Does this mean Sharpie is going to make videos with Seabrook full-time now? Questions, questions. I will always love you, Adam Burish, even if you now play for the stinky Stars.

I'm so sad though- my brother-in-law has season tickets again. I often get to use these tickets, as he is quite often busy and he knows I love hockey. It's a pretty sweet deal. I take one of my nephews when I can, and have also brought several friends along. I was super excited to see that our 2nd home game was against the Blackhawks. I don't remember if I wrote about it here, but I did not see last year's 'Hawks game- though it was on the BEST. WEEK. EVER (sharing with the Caps and Devils, 2 games I did attend. I think the Caps game was the best I saw from the Sabres last year. The Devils was among the worst but it was Marty's record-tying 103rd shutout so that was sweet.I digress.) The Blackhawks tickets had already been given to another, plus we had this ridiculous snow-storm and were pretty much buried in our valley here that night, so I watched it on tv instead of the 2nd row seats. I did get to drool over Sharpie in person in Columbus in February but it wasn't the same.

So... I was all ready to go this year. But someone else has a claim on the tickets already, which would be fine except I really want to see them and I will miss seeing Sharpie again this year. Boo. :( I really shouldn't complain, I will get to see many more games up close and personal, and I'm not really complaining, just lamenting. I shall watch from home. But I AM swiping the Canucks tickets so I can shamelessly drool over Ryan Kesler all night. :) That's right- I HAVE NO SHAME.

It feels good to be talking about hockey again, even if it's silliness. Not that I ever really stop, but hockey is about to matter again. That is really exciting!
