So this happened on Monday. I absolutely love when my sports worlds collide, but I especially love it when my hockey world meets my Baltimore world. Being that my hockey team resides in a different city than my own, I love seeing the Caps doing things in Baltimore.

Cosmo Picks Hot NHL Players, We Disagree
Take a look at “The Hottest Players in the NHL 2013” according to Cosmopolitan Magazine. I don’t entirely disagree, but there are much better options out there. They did the same thing in 2012, and the picks are less offensive, yet still missing the mark. Continue reading
Hump Day Hottie: Caps in Suits
Awhile back, I tried to enlighten the Ladies… readers on the hotness that is the Washington Capitals. Thanks to a super sexy GQ-esque team photo shoot, I was able to show you a bunch of hot hockey players in street clothes looking super fine. Well, the brains behind the GQ shoot decided to give us more. This recent shoot was done in conjunction with the re-launch of Scarlet Caps, a site about the Caps geared towards female fans. While I’m not a huge fan of the site, I’m definitely a huge fan of the photo shoots.
So follow me after the jump to see hot athletes in suits.
I Was There: The Ladies… Do The Winter Classic
Hello, Ladies… readers! I know it’s been awhile since you’ve seen a post from me, but I’m back in full force and bringing you some hockey, of course! I was lucky enough to be able to purchase Winter Classic tickets for the Capitals vs. Penguins game in Pittsburgh on New Year’s Day. As a loyal Caps season ticket holder, I decided to make the purchase, book the hotel and make the trek to Western PA.
Make the trek with me after the jump to read all about my trip (and I promise some pictures of hot guys).
Your 2010 NHL Playoffs of Hotness Winner
As chosen by our readers, Washington Capitals center Brooks Laich!
The Saskatchewan native with the dreamy blue eyes racked up some respectable numbers in 2009-10: 25 goals and 34 assists in 78 games in the regular season; two goals, one assist and one spare tire in their seven postseason games against the Canadiens (Moment of Silence on Raven’s behalf, please.)
We love, love, love Laich! Oh, NHL training camp. You can’t come soon enough.

The NHL Playoffs of Hotness: Round 2

The Divisional Semis are complete. Round 2 heats up with eight fellas worthy of Blanche Devereaux’s attention (rest in peace, Rue). Make your choice after the jump now through Sunday at 8PM Eastern. Continue reading

Good Mourning: Letting it all Out
Well it looks like I just might still be in mourning. It’s been a week. One whole week since my beloved – and favored – Capitals were eliminated in the Stanley Cup playoffs. My heart was, and still is, broken.
It’s times like this one when we realize that it’s great to be a well-rounded sports fan. When one season comes to a close, another is either in full bloom or just beginning. This year, that thought makes me even more depressed. Typically, when the NHL season ends, I put my focus on baseball. This year, I’m finding that pretty hard.
