possible happiest day ever….

Tomorrow is the Opening Day for the Washington Nationals. The Caps also have a game tomorrow night, which most likely means active players will NOT be at the 1:05 game (possible but unlikely).

HOWEVER it does mean that there is a slight possibility that Mike Green and Tom Poti will be around. Sweet baby jesus I might not be able to sleep tonight.

The thought of even being able to see to see this in person will keep me up all night

that is all.

well that didn’t end as we expected

Caps have played the Habs three times this season and two of those three games were some of the best hockey I’ve seen.

Tonight’s game was a bit different. First period reminded me of the team we all fell in love with. And there were some great looks in the 3rd (missed the 2nd due to concourse food search) but they just couldn’t seal the deal. It wasn’t the cardiac Caps, rather the prude on prom night.

Came thisclose to giving us what we wanted and in the end denied us the pleasure of winning. Although we did get this, serious heavy petting by Ovie:

My boy Greenie got an assist tonight with pretty stick handling pass in front of the net to Old Man Knubs. swoooooooooon.

But, with this all said, as a BU girl I can’t believe we lost to Brian FREAKING Gionta. That kid just can’t leave us alone. It’s like the varisty cheerleader from the rival town winning homecoming queen. NOT COOL.

All I want for Christmas…

..is for the Caps to do this one day

There is nothing I don’t love about this post. Save for wishing it was just a little bit longer. Or more videos of cute hockey players lip syncing to the best of Mariah Carey.

NotableĀ  notes:

  • A large percentage of the Belfast Giants went to college.
  • An even larger percentage are alums/former players of Hockey East Schools, including UNH, Maine and Providence.
  • The scene stealers are two guys from the US…the opener from NJ, #8 Tim Cook and the giant dancing elf, #33 from Mike Hoffman.
  • My guilty pleasure is the hair-brush-singing/ hallway dancing leader #33 Craig Peacock. He’s only 22 but sweet baby Jesus he’s got some moves and sweet forearms.

And on that note, I’m going to bed.

lots to catch up on

It’s August. Development game camp has been over for just under a month and training camp is on the horizon. Contracts have been signed for the 09-10 season. Some of the guys are gone to greener, or more luctrative pastures. Many of our guys are recovering from surgeries, illnesses and injuries from the grueling playoff season.

But one thing is certain for all of our guys: they are ready for for the season. And, so are we.

Our calendars are cleared. Our Caps Convention tickets are purchased. Hundreds of photos have alreay been put online, right Cvandy?

We’re ready. Are you?
