My Quest Continues

by Anne


REMEMBER WHEN THOMAS VANEK IS THE GREATEST HOCKEY PLAYER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD?!?!

Ok so maybe not but he's still TOTALLY AWESOME.

I continue in my quest for Western Conference Men!!

Thanks to a few excellent suggestions earlier today I have locked in the following choices:


Chicago Blackhawks:


Patrick Sharp

I was given the "all clear" to love Patrick Sharp and HERE I GO.
He had a beautifully productive 07-08 campaign and was just given an "A".
NICE
And he scored a goal last night!! Woooo!!!

Colorado Avalanche:


John-Michael Liles

I have no reason to love JM Liles other than:
1. He's cute
2. Ryan Miller is friends with him
3. I don't give a HOOT about anyone else on the Avs


Minnesota Wild:

Owen Nolan

He was born in Ireland!
Ok, so he only lived there until he was like 7 months old but THAT'S JUST GETTING INTO DETAILS.

Really, its partially because I love the name "Nolan" and I plan to one day name a child that.

Here's hoping Owen Nolan and I never decide to procreate, then I'd be stuck.

That, and he's gotten foxier with age:


Ummmmm.....

San Jose Sharks:

This is a tough one, it would've been Kyle McLaren but, ummmm, that's a touchy subject for Jess and Soph, so I'll just move along.

Then there's Marc-Edouard Vlasic who seems totally BA but can I love a man whose nickname is Pickles? I might need someone a little more rugged, even if he does remind me of Jason Pominville.

HOWEVER. Upon perusal of the Sharks' website I noted that one Mr. Torrey Mitchell appears to have pulled a TimmyHo and broken multiple bones and is not playing for the foreseeable future and has been declared my San Jose Sharks boyfriend.

"But, Anne", you might be saying, "he's hurt, he's not going to be able to WOW you with being all tough and swaggery and breaking people's bones when he crushes them into the boards, right Kurtis Foster?" And those who might be saying that, would be correct.

HOWEVER:


YYYYYYESSSSSSSSS!!!

Already we've been treated to a few "I was going to do this stuff anyway but now I'm hurt, thanks for cheering for me anyway guys." moments and a roommate anecdote about how Devin Setoguchi ruined a pair of Torrey's flipflops because Devin's feet were too big for them. GOLD. PURE GOLD. Is he any good at, ya know, playing hockey? I have no idea. Does it matter? HECK NO.

ETA: The amazing Soph has informed me that Torry Mitchell is a JERK FACE who elbowed her once and therefore I shall continue to enjoy his blog but I am demoting him from the list. SAVED FROM CERTAIN HEARTBREAK!

Dallas: Ok I don't have a selection made but Fabian Brunnstrom scored like 106 goals last night, should I consider him? Dallas fans?


He's got a kind of "I Might Be Crazy Awesome or Just Plain Crazy" vibe to him, no?
Thoughts?
Good Choice? Bad Choice?
Should I Just Pick Marty Turco and call it a day?!?
AND HIS NAME IS FABIAN SO DREW STAFFORD PROBABLY ALREADY HAS HIM ON SPEED DIAL

Sidenote, who didn't love it when MSG decided to park the camera on Drew Stafford last night at the top of the 3rd period and he was just like patting all his teammates on the back like a reassuring Dad? I thought it was darn cute. Granted, he might do it all the time, but we've never seen it before.

As always, I soldier on, searching for men to love as I eagerly await the return of BIG BEAR TO BUFFALO.

  2. This is a tough one, it would've been Kyle McLaren but, ummmm, that's a touchy subject for Jess and Soph, so I'll just move along.

    Kyle would have been perfect! He's totally rugged, and he has the same (weird) shirts as Roy-Z! What's not to love? Oh yeah, that he might not be in the Sharks organization much longer. Details, details.

    Then there's Marc-Edouard Vlasic who seems totally BA but can I love a man whose nickname is Pickles? I might need someone a little more rugged, even if he does remind me of Jason Pominville.

    Yeah, if you're NOT looking for a guy who gets rosy cheeks during games and basically looks like a twelve-year-old, Pickles might not be the best choice for your primary Sharks bf.

    As for dropping Torrey Mitchell,
    good move, Anne. It's all for the best.

    Hahahahahahah rosy cheeks?!?! That's awesome, but yes, does preclude him from being my #1 Sharks man.

    As for dropping Torrey Mitchell,
    good move, Anne. It's all for the best.


    I'm glad I got out before I committed my heart fully. We can both move on now, Torrey and I.

  5. Thank you for turning away for Torrey Bitchell as Jess and I tend to call him. He looks all cute and sweet but those looks ARE DECIEVING! Like his pointy evil elbows!!!!

    Eh-hem. Okay, so here
    are some of my fav Sharks pics (I threw in some Sharks turned Sabres in there for ya, Anne). The rugged quota of the Sharks certainly has decreased without Rivet or Big Bear. But if you are looking for ruggedness, there is still Ryane Clowe or Jody Shelley (he has a chocolate lab named Ellie Shelley, what's not to love?). Cheechoo is so awkward it's endearing, but then again, he's by no means an unsung hero. I love Milan Michalek and would be more than willing to share if he floats your boat. I also love my Germans Christian Ehrhoff and Marcel Goc. Pickles is really cute and dopey, but I don't know if he's exactly what you are looking for in a main squeeze. He's definitely not rugged with his special edition Friend's box set and his girl scout cookies...

    I hope you enjoy the pics and if you need any more help, I'd be more then glad to help out.

  6. I say Mike Modano for the Stars, but then again, he has that whole 'Napolean Dynamite'-esque look on his face most of the time...even though I think he is quite handsome sometimes!

  7. I think it is my mission to find you a Stars BF. Fabian is gorgeous and has a fabulous, fabulous smile. He appears to be an absolute doll in his interviews. Brad Richards is just an all round nice guy. I did a lengthy post on him during the summer. He shaved his head so he is not as cute a usual. Take a look at the picture of him with the Stanley Cup and you will see what else I like about him.

  8. AHHHHH SOPH YOU'RE AMAZING.

    Ok as much as I want to be all "hey there ryan clowe...;)" I keep seeing pictures of Pickles and giggling uncontrollably. I do need to have my "why are you so adorable" token WCB. I mean, that's why the Sabres are keeping Jason Pominville around for so long, right?

    I think Pickles has to win this one. Hahaha rosy cheeks and all!

    And that crotch shot of Craig Rivet almost became my desktop back ground, hahaha.

  9. Nolan Nolan???

    you don't want a grandchild with the same first and last name?? UGH. FINE, MAMA, YOU'RE SO HARD TO PLEASE.

    And he's married to Willa Ford... ehhh I'm just not sure I can get behind that. He's a foxy gent but there may be too many obstacles in our way.

    I need so much guidance!!! I shall read about Brad Richards and explore his potential. Wooooo!!!

    Yes, SUCCESS! I'm glad Soph and I were able to help you fill some void in your life, Anne!

  13. Pickles is probably your best bet. Especially considering that Ryane Clowe took Big Bear's job (Although that void is impossible to fill). Plus you need a Western Conference BF who is sweet a dopey and will fetch you Thin Mints. Plus he would probably laugh at all of your jokes even though they are way over his head... An all around good choice

    I love that screen-cap of Rivet too. Like how awkward must that have been to film? "Okay, Mr. Rivet, why don't you just sit there, and I'm going to lie on the floor and flim your crotch and it will be good.

    If they managed to do it without his knowledge, I'd be even more impressed than if they got his consent with that approach, lol.
