Matt Carle

Hockey hockey hockey!

Caught both the Prague and Stockholm games on the NHL Network this morning. I haven't really been looking for it, but where is all the fluff coverage of the hockey boys in Europe? Don't they know that being in a foreign country together makes boys gayer??? And that it should be shown to us? :D

Lightning/Rangers
  • Zherdev looks good! I think he could possibly outshine some of the new big name players with the Rangers.
  • Matt Carle looks so much better now. (And is getting a ton of ice time). I bet he, Gomez and Dubinsky hung out together and that Carle was blushing and giggling like a schoolgirl the whole time. Then they went out into the Czech wilderness and shot a moose and skinned it.
  • I like how Al Trautwig called Vinny Prospal a "member" of the Czech Republic. It certainly brings new meaning to the term "country club".
  • I saw Ryan Malone on the ice with a teammate wearing 17 nearby and my mind immediately screamed, "PETR!!!" Then I remembered I was watching the Lightning. I wonder if Malone ever looks at Radim Vrbata and thinks, sadly, but you're not my Czech 17.
  • Lots of good chances for both teams, and the goalies have been good, but I'm still surprised there weren't more goals. Maybe the forwards don't have their hands back yet.
  • Vinny Lecavalier interview:


Penguins/Senators
  • I can't believe that Petr went to Europe, got violently sick, then somehow hurt his groin. :(
  • How do you manage to nail your own player on a PP dump in, thus bouncing the puck back out to spring the other team on a breakaway?
  • Kind of bizarre that Sidney and Marian ran into each other in the Bahamas.
  • Aww, little pig-faced Tyler Kennedy scored in OT.

Alex's baby is noticeably bigger after 2 weeks and she can do more things now, like lift her legs up at a 90 degree angle. She also grabs things and kicks a bunch, and has started putting things in her mouth. Alex assembled a little baby chair with toys attached to it, then we started playing with the toys. We think it's because we were deprived and didn't have toys as babies, so that's why we had fun playing with them. :P

seriously, did no one go to a sauna and lounge around naked and now wants to tell us about it and giggle?

Oh god, saunas. You just know that some of the boys would get carried away and start really clubbing each other with those branches.

It's just Pens stuff, but it's pretty good...the sideline guy, Dan Potash has been taking pictures. http://pittsburghlive.smugmug.com/gallery/6098593_8GMvW?source=pghlivefront_top#P-1-15

Oh, I skimmed that thanks, but I'm looking more for stories and video clips. :)

ROFFLES little pig faced Tyler Kennedy.

He totally looks like a pig! I keep waiting for him to start oinking.

.....I just want to know why half of Vinny's eyebrows are gone.

DUDE! I was wondering the same thing! I was thinking... wait, were they... always like that?

Vinny is wishing he still had Brad as a roommate, because Brad never tried to shave off his eyebrows in the night. ;D

They have CBC at the hotel so I was able to watch the games! :D But I only really saw the first game. I slept through nearly all of the second game due to being too tired from the previous day's events *cough*. I'm sooooo glad hockey's back though!

It was tough to get invested in any of the games without Petr playing for the Pens, but I was kind of fascinated with watching Matt Carle, hahaha.

I was too! Carle is probably the reason why I stayed awake for that game, heh.

How do you manage to nail your own player on a PP dump in, thus bouncing the puck back out to spring the other team on a breakaway?

I didn't see this, but the answer is "you play for the Ottawa Senators."

On the replay it just looked like whoever shot the puck in was trying to kill Chris Neil!

Oh! In that case, it was probably a knee-jerk reaction to seeing Neil on the power play. :P

*dies* "What's he doing there! TAKE HIM OUT! TAKE HIM OUT!"

I think the announcers were like, oh maybe there was a deflection or something, but then they showed the replay and they were like, hmm, there doesn't seem to have been a deflection...

I saw Ryan Malone on the ice with a teammate wearing 17 nearby and my mind immediately screamed, "PETR!!!" Then I remembered I was watching the Lightning. I wonder if Malone ever looks at Radim Vrbata and thinks, sadly, but you're not my Czech 17.

oh yeah ... i'm all over that. and the oddest thing is that vrbata has that sort of unusual skating stride that petr has.

and it's SO not his czech 17 :(

The one where he looks like he's working very hard but not going very fast? Muahaha.

*sniffle*
