WTH Santa?!

Dear Jolly Old Saint Nicholas,
I thought us hockey fans and you had made an agreement that the lockout would be over by now.
By some Christmas miracle the owners and players would come to their senses and agree on a deal...
You know, the whole holiday spirit spiel.
So, 2 days after Christmas and the lockout is still on.
Yeah, we get it. 

I don't know about you guys, but I'm having some serious withdrawals.
And Nealer isn't helping the situation at all by tempting us with pictures like
this from his Twitter account. He is such a tease.
Oh J. You so sassy with your hand on your hip like that.

Now, back to what I was saying before The Real Deal interrupted us.
Oh, right. The lockout.
We all know the games have been canceled until January 14, 2013.
 Bettman has said that the minimum number of games that have to be played for it to be considered a legit season is 48.
 That means if they don't have a deal by January 15 the entire season will be canceled.
That's a little less than 3 weeks from now!
 I know, right?!?!
Maybe my birthday month will be good luck.
Shout out to all of my fellow January babies!

Fingers, toes, and arms crossed because I miss this!

I Approve This Message.

It doesn't matter if you're a San Francisco Giants fan or not,
if you know baseball, you know Tim Lincecum.
If it's not his pitching that catches you're attention, it's probably his hair.
Oh that hair.
It's pretty much the first thing you notice when you would see him.
The last time we saw Timmy with short hair was when he was just starting out in 2007.
He looks like such a iddy biddy boy. How cute.
We were all fine and dandy with his hair becoming longer.
If his pitching is on par it doesn't matter what his hair looks like, right?
2012 was the first time we had started to see a not so stellar side to Timmy's pitching.
The first few games of the season we Gigantes fans were thinking,
Well, this is weird.
Why is Timmy so off?
What is going on?

But, we kept the faith.
We stuck with him.
But, the farther we got into the season with no real change it got scarier and harder to stay optimistic.
Then came the post season.
He obviously wasn't going to be one of the starters.
Okay, fine. He'll be one of the relievers in the bull pen.
Who knew that he would more than excel in that position!
Virtual high fives for everyone!

So, a month and a half after the season ends I casually log on the internet to see what's going on in the sports world and what do I find.....
And I was like WHAAAAAAAATTTT????
But, I gotta admit I kinda love it!
He finally looks like the 28 year old man that he is.
So, what's my opinion of Timmy's new hair...
I 100% approve!
I hope this is the beginning of a brand new Big Time Timmy Jim.

Ginner And Cooch.

A while ago I said there was gonna be more bromance posts.
I did a semi-sort of one on last weeks Seguin Sunday.
You can read it here:

But, I have to admit that it was an unintentional one.

So, I'm intentionally writing this one about my favorite bromance of all time that was ripped apart by a trade,
Jamie McGinn and Logan Couture.

They played together for almost 7 years, starting all the way back with the Ottawa 67's.
Ginner started with them in the 2004-2005 season and Cooch came the following year.
I have no words for the blond flow. I'm more of a playoff beard kinda girl.

Fast forward to 2010 and they've both made it to San Jose.
Still going strong!

Then came February 27, 2012, the day we found out he had been traded to the
Colorado Avalanche for TJ Galiardi and Daniel Winnik.
Shout out to Gabe the Babe! 

We, as fans, were devastated. Why? Why would they do this?
 As much as we were sad about it, I can only imagine how Cooch must have been feeling.

Anyway, like Couture said in an interview after hearing about that trade(and I'm paraphrasing here),
Hockey is a business.
It's not personal.
Stuff like this happens.

But, even with that said it's still hard when one of your favorite players gets traded.
Not to mention I have a crush the size of the state of Texas on Ginner...
but you've probably realized that by now.

Good news is, I believe that even though they may not play on the same team anymore their bromance is alive and happy as ever.
I'll take it!

By the way, did I mention that Mr. McGinn replied to one of my tweets on my personal Twitter account?
You can follow me here if you would like,
Yep, made my day!

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas:
(Photo from Gabers Twitter) 
Is to be YOU! 

How is this fair?
Does this "Santa" know how lucky he is? I'm gonna go with a HO! HO! NO

Apparently Hottie McHot Stuff, (second from the Left) Ben Thomson is single.
Hey...Ben... CAN I HAVE YO NUMBA? 

But seriously, can I have it? 

Dear Santa (take two),

If I can't be you, can I get Ben Thomson's number? .....To clarify, I would take any one these guys numbers.

Hope Mrs. Claus is well.

Seguin Sunday.

I think we need to make Sundays, Seguin Sundays.
Originally, it was just gonna be a one time thing, but I think there's enough stuff on the interweb to make it possible.
Especially in the picture department.
And he's very active on Twitter. You can follow him here,

By the looks of that tweet it sounds to me that Segs has a new bromance brewing with one 
Patrick Kane.

I wonder how Brad Marchand feels about this.
This lockout is proving long distance is not easy for relationships.
Can the "Bryler" bromance stay strong?
It was one of my favorites in all of hockey.

Unfortunately, it's not just poor Marchand.
Segsy's bestie, Tyler Brown, has been feeling it too.

 Ooooh. It's like that whole changing your Facebook status before you've actually broken up with the person thing.
But don't worry guys. I have faith that the Tyler Squared relationship will make it.

Then there's this little interview I found from Friday. It's very educational. Especially #17.
(Ya'll should check this blog out. It's pretty great.)
 So, back to the whole "single" thing...

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Uncle Jesse Says Have Mercy.

These Camp Biosteel videos may be from August, but that hasn't stopped me from watching them continuously since then.

Day 1

I don't know why, but this was my favorite video of the week.
I have 3 theories on the answer:
1. It was the first hockey video I had seen all summer and I was having some serious withdrawals.
2. I really like the song.
3. There's just something about watching hockey players work out.

I have a firm belief that I could full on rock that workout too.
And if I couldn't hack it maybe Segsy can spot me...
We interrupt this regularly scheduled program for arms.
Let's all just take a second and let that sink in for a bit.
Oh yes. 

Day 2

I think I might need to change my career path.
Massage therapist might be a better fit.
That woman looks like she's having entirely too much fun...but I can't really blame her.

Day 3

So, probably by day 2, I would be hating life because I would be so sore, but I would muscle through because I can't seem like a wimp to these guys.
Not to mention I'd be flat on my face in 2.8 seconds if I tried to run up a hill sideways. 
*Golf clap to those who can do it.*
But, by day 3, I would be calling on Segs again to carry me.

Day 4
What I really appreciate about days 3 and 4 is that James Neal is shown a lot more.
And everyone knows I love me some Nealer.
Silly boy, wearing a suit to the gym. Don't you know you get a better workout sans shirt?

Day 5

The game.
This is actually only my second time seeing this. 
They didn't release this video until about 3 weeks ago.
Totally bananas, right?! Making us wait. 
Oh well, better late than never.

Thank you Camp Biosteel for doing this. 
Watching these on repeat for the past 3 months have eased the hockey lockout pains slightly.

And now to finish it off, a little prank played on BizNasty by some of the guys.

Don't you just love hockey players???

Hey Boy: James Neal

James Neal isn't letting this lockout keep him from playing hockey.
He may not be playing in a professional league in a different country, but that doesn't mean he's not keeping his skills in check.
He played at Operation: Hat Trick, a charity game for Hurricane Sandy.
 I wish I lived on the east coast.

And backyard hockey games like this.
Those guys have all the luck.

I think I need to learn how to ice skate, but this is probably how it would turn out.
Unless...Hey Nealer! Wanna teach me how?
 At first, he'd be all, "Whatchu talkin' 'bout Willis?",
  but then he'd happily embrace the idea and we could skate off into the sunset.
Hey, a girl can dream, right???

Well, back to reality.
I love a guy who is man enough to wear shorts with socks that reach his calves.
Oooh J. You sure can rock those tube socks!

Here at TSC we are big fans of athletes who have dogs.
It's like getting extra chocolate sprinkles on my peppermint mocha.
No! No! No! This is not allowed. You are not permitted to be this perfect!
 Well, fine! I guess you can, if you must.
I hate him. And by hate I mean love and have a deep affection for.
Are you kidding me?

Let's just say for kicks he didn't have tube socks, a dog, or a gaze that could pierce the hearts of ladies everywhere.
His flow alone is enough to make him Hey Boy worthy.
I whip my hair back and forth.
That picture alone kills me. Hot hair AND a smile.
Hey James, I'm a licensed hairstylist. Together we can do some great things.
Have your people call my people.

I love EVERYTHING about this little collage.
Thank you Pinterest!

Fergie speaks truth with this song.

Did I mention James just happens to be my favorite name? It's fate I tell you!
