Friday Foolishness

by Anne


The Canucks beat the Red Wings in OT last night. Will they have more jump tonight or will they be tired because of the longer game and the travel? What?!? They only had 27 seconds of OT? Oh... weeeeellll let's hope they've used up all their good hockey juju for the end of the week on Detroit. BIG BEAR?!!!?!! Even TAYLOR PYATT showed up for that game. Cllllllearly they were worried more about the Red Wings, PERCHANCE THEY'LL UNDERESTIMATE US??! GRRRrrrr....?

I keep forgetting to mention: last weekend I had a dream that Craig Rivet was trying to kill me. WHAT DID I DO, ROSIE?

WCB quest continues:

San Jose Sharks:

After my HEARTBREAK over learning that Torrey Mitchell is a big mean person, I've been forced to re-examine my selection process. Apparently just having a blog doesn't make you worthy of my love?!?!?! WHAT?!?! After much time has been taken to process this, I have accepted it as true, and have MOVED ON.

Soph, who is totally frikkin amazing sent me a link to an entire album of Sharks photos to aid me in my quest because she and Jess basically rock. To entice me, she tossed in several pictures of the most recent addition to my favorite Sabres list, one Mr. Anthony Craig Rivet.

Finding a Sharks boyfriend was hard because: 1. No more Big Bear 2. We stole Craigory andd I fell in love with him a little bit during the playoffs when I discovered the joy that is Shark Byte 3. Kyle McLaren, confused about the rules, has moved to Massachusetts, thinking it'll help his case by being geographically closer to me. He was wrong :(

ANYWAY. I went back and forth on this player. But in the end, I decided that my squeals of delight over his adorableness was enough to push me into his arms...


Marc-Edouard "Pickles" Vlasic
I mean, COME ON?!?!
LOOK AT THAT PICTURE.


HAWT.


heeeeeeeeee


Ok, he kind of LOOKS LIKE his nickname would be Pickles.

He apparently loves Friends and Girl Scout cookies, HOW COULD I CHOOSE ANYONE ELSE? He can have the Thin Mints and the Samoas, I'll take the Tagalongs and the shortbread ones. He gets rosy cheeks during games and

weeeeeee!

I'm still on the prowl for MEN from the following teams:

Anaheim Ducks
Dallas Stars
Nashville Predators
Phoenix Coyotes - they got rid of Keith Ballard and got Olli Jokinen (What a sexiness DOWNGRADE)

My search continues!!

  1. YESSSS!! Anne, I'm sure you and Pickles will be very happy together. He's dumb-seeming, and cute, and isn't that what women want??? I'm sure he would share his girl scout cookies with you.

    haha I feel like I just sold you a car or something!

    Oh yeah, and you ROCK too, Anne!

  2. Come on, who doesn't want to date a guy whose nickname is 'Pickles'? Especially when his last name is Vlasic, because that's a fun name to say.

    And Craig Rivet tried to kill you?! What have you done to anger his dream self?!

  3. I have a feeling my boys are going to be too tired to take this one, but I'm still pumped.

    I think I've narrowed down my Sabres boyfriend to Goose, Drew Stafford, or Toni Lydman.

  4. That Pickles guy totally looks like he should have been in the Mighty Ducks.

    p.s. I get really excited every time I see a person in a black and white striped shirt as we watch the game.

    Can you imagine like, being at home and trying to get his attention when you're in separate rooms? "PICKLES! CAN YOU COME HERE AND HELP ME WITH THE DISHES?!"

    And Craig Rivet tried to kill you?! What have you done to anger his dream self?!

    I wish I knew!! He like legitimately was trying to kill me, specifically me, and he had a gun. It was freakay.

  7. I think I've narrowed down my Sabres boyfriend to Goose, Drew Stafford, or Toni Lydman.

    Three excellent choices.

    Stafford had a disappointing season last year but has really really stepped it up this off-season, coming to a development camp and playing in every pre-season game. He's got a really immature sense of humor it seems and he loves say that Zach Parise is his favorite athlete because they went to school together. He was my favorite for a time, but he was really irresponsible last season so I demoted him.

    Goose is the All-American hero. Like, the only bad thing there is to say about him is well 1, he and I are not yet married with 2.5 children and a dog, and 2, that he doesn't produce high goal totals, but when he's healthy this season he'll be on the 2nd line (probably) so those numbers will be on the rise.

    Toni Lydman loves thrash metal, was declared by Drew Stafford to be the most likely player to own a snake, takes hilarious roster photos and seems like he's an all around funny Finnish guy. He's recently recovering from breaking up with Henrik Tallinder after spending the entire last season as defense buddies. He hits a lot, takes a lot of hooking penalties and he's pretty bad ass. He made a joke about body hair in an interview last year that made me laugh for like 20 minutes when I heard it because they so rarely interview him.
    WOW that was long.
