So how did you feel about last night’s Game 7’s? The above photo would describe how I felt. Have at ‘er in the comments. And pass the Kleenex.
It’s that time of year…finally! We weren’t sure if we would even have the NHL Playoffs this year, but here we are. While other sites try to compile their own lists of the hotties of the NHL, we know our hockey here, so you can trust us.
As an added bonus, we’re even providing a preview of sorts for those who have checked out on the NHL so far. So strap on your skates and don’t ice the puck…
Hi, my name is Raven, and I’m addicted to HOCKEY GIFS!! Seriously, .gifs in general are the best thing the internet has invented. Somehow, the stupidest of moments caught on tape can bring such joy to my life. Recently, I was introduced to Tumblr, a.k.a. the home of .gifs. It’s such a wonderful place where I’ve found so many many many awesome .gifs. I, of course, love the hockey ones, specifically any featuring Washington Capitals players. So without further ado, I bring you some of my favorite hockey .gifs.
This guy is one of my favorite hockey players ever, and, surprisingly, I’ve never featured him here on Ladies…, but that’s about to change. Welcome to Ladies…, Troy Brouwer. You are now officially a hockey hottie!
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).
So hockey is officially over until October, but we’re not done with hockey here. It’s Conference Finals time! We’re down to the final four, and the polls close on Sunday night at 8pm EST. So vote away after the jump.
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.
So you’re going to have to excuse me as I go all fangirly here. I love Nicklas Backstrom. Not the kind of love most of us Ladies talk about on here, though. I love this kid’s game. I love his little baby face. I love his flowing blonde locks. But most of all, I love that he’s a Washington Capital. I love that he plays for my team (and my fantasy team). I love that he’s only 22-years-old and hasn’t even begun to peak yet. This kid is going to be something special. He’s already a top scorer in this year’s playoffs, and set career highs in goals and points this season. So if you like his game or his adorable little face, follow me after the jump for some Super Swede lovin!
So Lady Bee and I have decided to do the preview for the 2010 playoffs. Since we’re the hockey fiends, we figured we’d do a fun roundtable discussion of predictions and hotties.
Follow us after the jump for some knowledge and eye candy!
It’s been some time since I showed the Caps some love over here, and a friend of mine sent me some gorgeous pics of the boys to use, so I thought, “What the hell? These are worthy of some Hump Day Hottie love.” So that brings us up-to-date.
Today I bring you my favorite offensive defenseman and our resident wannabe thug – Mike Green. I’ve shown you his insanely silly website before, but now let me show you some of his hotness. Follow me after the jump for some Mike Green adoration.
How adorable!? It’s Day 9, and just let me tell you, I wish this hottie was under my tree in 16 days. Find out what hottie this adorable kid turned out to be after the jump!
A lot of controversy has surrounded a couple of my favorite athletes recently. First, it was the Tiger Woods’ accident and, most recently, his “transgressions”. Then it was the 2-game suspension handed to Alex Ovechkin for a knee-on-knee hit on Carolina’s Tim Gleason. Many folks have had harsh words for both of these guys, but I’ve been trying to avoid the frenzy surrounding both incidents.
The whole thing has made me wonder whether I am blinded by sports-related bias.
One of the great things about the ladies assembled here is love and fandom spanning all spectrums of the sporting world. The majority of these ladies however, know something that I did not, hockey rocks!
So I’m only a few hours removed from one of the coolest nights ever. As most of you already know, I’m a Washington Capitals season ticket holder. One of the perks of being a STH is a party with the team at Six Flags America. Well, last night was the party, and I thought I would share some photos and stories from the event.
Follow me after the jump for some pictures of some hockey hotties. And I promise there is gratuitous Steckel.
Since Games Mistress is busy gallivanting around Europe (lucky bum!), I have taken over her Theme Thursday duties. Since we didn’t have a winner the last go-round, I took it upon myself to do a little research and come up with my own. Since I’m missing hockey like whoa, I thought I would bring some NHL love back to the site.
Take a guess as to what these three NHLers have in common after the jump!
There is an understanding in my home state of Maryland, you either root for the Redskins, or you root for everyone else but the Skins. I’m a glutton for punishment, so I became a sad sap of a human, full equipped with Skins Starter jacket and a love of Joe Gibbs. Follow me this week as we travel through the capital city of this great land, and the teams that almost seem like afterthoughts to professional sports.
Well it’s time to say goodbye to the 2008-09 Washington Capitals. It was a disappointing end to an exciting season. After an insane circus of a series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Caps blew it in Game 7 with a 6-2 loss at home. I was there and still am getting over the crushing loss. So I was thinking, what’s a good way to get over a great season that ended in a not-so-great way? So I thought, I want to celebrate this team with a tribute…to their hotness!! I’ve been told by some of our ladies that’s it’s totally unfair that my Caps are so hot! So I’m sharing their hotness with you!
Your hot 2008-09 Washington Capitals…
Well I just got back from the best Game 7, OK the only Game 7, I’ve ever witnessed! As of this morning, my voice is a little scratchy, but well worth the pain. After being down 3-1 in the series, the Washington Capitals battled back and took down the New York Rangers. Sergei Fedorov saved the day with his wicked slapshot with about 5 minutes to go in regulation. The rest as they say is history. The other Game 7 last night was also quite amazing. Eric Staal scored on Marty Brodeur with 31.7 seconds to go in a 3-3 game, and the No. 6 seeded Carolina Hurricanes took down the New Jersey Devils.
So now the match-ups for the East are set, and it’s onto the preview of the Eastern Conference Semifinals…
