So earlier this week we innocently asked why the Gretzkys were acting so hard in their Christmas card and a day later the Toronto Star picks up the story and runs with it. One thing leads to another and Canadians are comparing the Gretzkys to the Kardashians and eventually leads to Paulina Gretzky - once again - in a Twitter drama. Then we open the inbox this morning and the Gretzky Christmas card photographer is emailing us. JUMP!
HBO's 24/7 series for the NHL Winter Classic rolled along last night with the inside look at the Rangers ugly sweater Christmas party. The highlight was obviously this reindeer 3-way sweater worn by defenseman Michael Del Zotto, who's just 21-years-old. We keep hearing NY & Philly bloggers raving about this show because there are lots of f-bombs and reindeer three-ways. Finally, people giving a f*ck about the NHL. It's a miracle! Forecast for the Classic - 54 & sunny!
Look at the Wayne Gretzky family going all hardo for their Christmas card, or what we believe to be their Christmas card thanks to a tweet from his daughter Paulina. Even the little kids are trying to be hard. Cool look, Gretzkys. Maybe it's just some photo they took to put on the mantle to remember how hard the family is. Maybe it's some photo to celebrate some Canadian holiday like Boxing Day. Whatever the case, um, Paulina's legs and ass are looking superb. JUMP!
We're not sure, but Toronto Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak might just be a little off. We wouldn't tell him that to his face, but we're pretty sure any guy who's asking other dudes to go to a Justin Bieber concert via Twitter maybe took one too many hits to the head. Regardless, to each his own. It looks like Bozak and some fellow hockey bros may just have an intimate evening with The Bieb planned. What are we talking about? Check it!
It apparently takes forever for anyone in Winnipeg to go to the bathroom when they're watching their beloved Jets. Well, someone is mad as hell and not going to take it anymore! An anonymous Jets fan has started an online petition aimed at getting the organization to put troughs in the MTS Centre bathrooms instead of the urinals they currently have. The idea is that it will help improve the flow of things. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the club is going to bite, but the effort is still golden. Check it!
You know you're an old drunk when you hit a Jets-Bruins game & resort to a flask hiding under the jersey. Look at how 'Kurt' doesn't even hide the fact that he needs a sip. Those eyes pretty much paint a picture of a dude who's went to battle with the bottle a few times in his life. Good work, sir. You got us to pay attention to December NHL. That's a victory. In football news, the Houston Texans have signed Jeff Garcia. You know that that means. Yep, Carmen. Let's get rolling!
Our French-Candian friend JT at 25Stanley.com sent word today that you Americans need to know that one of our goalies, Jonathan Bernier (Kings) will soon marry underwear model Martine Forget. What does this all mean? It means that hockey WAG rankings are about to be rearranged. Of course most hockey WAG observers look at Carrie Underwood as the gold standard. Um, wait until you get a better look at Martine's arm bra catalog. JUMP!
Who's looking for an Arizona home where you can build a hockey rink in the master bedroom? Former NHL a-hole Claude Lemieux is looking to unload his 7,000 sq. ft. Paradise Valley that actually has a grassy yard area in the desert! And look at that pool! Just imagine the bikini broads jumping off the waterfall at drunken keggers. And drunken bikini chicks laying on those rocks like iguanas. This house has it all. $8k per month mortgage & it's yours. JUMP!
We warned you guys a long time ago that Matthew Barnaby was a ticking time bomb. Take the news this morning that Barnaby was allegedly hammered, driving on three tires and had front-end damage to his Porsche Cayenne. What was Barns up to on Sunday? Oh, just getting absolutely (allegedly) sh!tfaced at Jack Astor's Bar in Buffalo. How do we know? Because Barnaby live tweeted the proceedings! Good news: Barnaby didn't kill anyone. JUMP!
Mike Grier announced today that his 14-year career in the NHL is over. Of course ESPN took this as an opportunity to remind you that U.S. black guys don't play hockey and that contrary to what you've been told, U.S. black dudes playing hockey is rare. Did you read that carefully. Black guys from Detroit, Pittsburgh, Boston, etc. don't play hockey. Don't make it to the NHL. JUMP!
The news sent shockwaves across frozen Canadian ponds last night. It was around 9:30 EST when Paulina Gretzky tweeted, "Hi everyone I'm back! But shhh don't tell my dad." That's right, Paulina's original Twitter account - @PaulinaGretzky - has been reactivated and is open for your eyes. Look, daddy can't, and shouldn't, kill a Twitter account. She's 22. This isn't 1970s Russia. BTW, how long until she's dating
@BizNasty2point0. +/- Christmas? Let's get rolling!
Alexander Ovechkin may not be doing much on the ice, but he's been doing plenty off it. The Washington Capitals forward unveiled his new girlfriend on Wednesday and... drumroll please... she's Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko! And just in case you thought otherwise, let us assure you -- not only do we have the rundown on Ovechkin and Kirilenko, we've also got a boomin' gallery of Ovi's new prize. Check it!
It must be tough to be Paulina Gretzky -- you're gorgeous, the daughter of Hollywood (and Canadian) royalty, and you're rich. Unfortunately, being Wayne Gretzky's daughter also has its drawbacks, too. Like when dad tells you to shut down your Twitter and Facebook accounts because weird dudes on the Internet are staring at your half-naked body. Yeah, that sucks. Fortunately for you weird dudes, we already collected a bunch of pics of Paulina's half-naked body. Sorry, Wayne!
Just happened to be in Chicago this weekend and decided to bust our NHL cherry with a stop at the Blackhawks vs. Blue Jackets game. BONUS: just happened to be Halloween costume night. That meant lots of slutty women were just cruising the United Center in their Blackhawks Ice Girls costumes looking to jump some Tony Amonte costume bones. There was a Hooters waitress dude and we also spotted a dude dressed up as a blind ref - with a blind cane! JUMP!
