Guy Love Between Flyer’s Giroux and Devil’s Elias

One of the best GIFs from tonight’s action was a bit more tame, some might even say a little adorable. (Don’t tell either of them I called them adorable. I have brittle bones.)

Courtesy of, one of the best hockey boards on the bloggonet.

It of course immediately made us think of this:

But seriously, don’t tell them. I bruise from just regular life. I can’t afford a coma.

Is He or Isn’t He…

A Bond villain? A hair model? Some sort of sports ball coach?

Screen shot 2013-01-22 at 10.38.59 PM

“She sent you after me, knowing you’re not ready, knowing you would likely die. Mommy was very bad.”

Coach Bardem

“Go, fight, win! Don’t let Parise get a rebound!”

Yesterday in One Image (And A Couple More Because We Love You)

Yesterday saw three impressive shootouts. The most impressive and our favorite was Detriot Red Wings and the Columbus Columbus which blanked three rounds of the shootout before Swiss rookie Damien Brunner slid one under Brovrosky’s butt.

Hey Sergei! Can I call you Bob? I’m Damien. I’m new in town. Mind if I just keep this puck here?

More images after the break.

Also, I just learned how to take screen shots. Evidently I’m a thousand years old.

Hockey is Back. WTHII is Back.

Hockey is back. Finally. We have been waiting a long time, through far too many meetings and negotiations. In the end, it doesn’t matter how fair the deal was, or who was to blame. All we care about right now is that we finally have our new favorite sport back. The WTHII crew has been through a lot in the past two years, both personal (sorry for not being around guys, we really

Welcome back, you magnificent bastard!

are) and of course, going through two lockouts in two years in our two favorite sports. We have done our best to not become jaded and are excited to come back and bring with us a new blogging model. Blodel. Nope, scratch that. Never using the phrase Blodel again.

Here is what you can expect more of throughout this season:

  • More multimedia content. This means more Create-a-Caption, which was a reader favorite. This means more videos, images, soundbites, and whatever else we can dig up that is even tangentally related to the great sport of ice hockey.
  • More original articles.  We realize we aren’t the best at in-depth hockey analysis. We realize we don’t know the history of the league as well as we should. We also realize that you can get that stuff from other blogs run by men much more boring than us. We promise to keep bringing our unique brand of parody and satire that people loved last year. The only thing we’ll change is frequency. You want to hear more from our house doctor, Doctor Zamboni? We’ve got that. You want to read more of our Inside-the-Locker-Room transcripts? Those are coming. You want to know who Claude Giroux would ride on a tandem bike with? We know.
  • More utilizing our Twitter account, @icingbloggers. We know. We know. We have a twitter and we just don’t use it. That is changing. Our Twitter will be just as important to follow as our blog. There will be original content, media heckling, and of course our patented “Drunken Knee Jerk Analysis.” No filter. No editors. Just raw, drunk, WTHII writers, keeping it real, for the kids.
  • More more more. We have a lot on the docket. We have original content that should hit the blog later this week. Keep an eye on our twitter (again, @icingbloggers) to be abreast (huehuehue) of the situation.

Now that we’re done with that, time to watch some hockey!

Viral Video: The KHL “Deal With It” Celebration Slide

I am a believer that athletic competition, when done with grace and creativity, borders on an art form.

Andrey Stepanov of the KHL team Metallurg Novokuznetsk makes the argument that goal celebrations should be up for consideration as well.

The only possible way he could make this better is if he donned a pair of sunglasses while doing it. Pure genius and worthy of its viral status.

What are some of your favorite celebrations? And no, you can’t post Anisimov sniping celebration. Okay, yes you can. We loved it. But we love anything that ends in a fight.
