Du kan vara min äppelkaka Henrik

Somehow, I had forgotten this little gem until I happened across it when looking for videos for the last post. This combines two of my favorite things, Henrik Lundqvist's pretty face and Martha Stewart in all her uptight glory.

I really can't put my finger on my favorite part. The audiences reaction once they realize what Lundqvist looks like, the awkward small talk, Martha being Martha, it's all so amazing.

Happy Valentines Day!

I think today is the perfect day to make my triumphant return to the world of blogging about how yumtastic goalies can be.

I also think the best way to make my triumphant return is to present all you lovely ladies with some delightful videos of goalies doing what they do best: getting hearts pumping before the game has even started.

I have no idea what I would do if the only thing separating me from a stretching goalie was some plexiglass and maybe half a foot.

Of course, I've saved the best for last.

I swear, Henrik Lundqvist could talk about the stock market and I would still be mesmerized.

ASG (All Star Goalies) !!!!

First, apologies for being so neglectful of my responsibilites duty to all women of the world on keeping up with the blogging here but I am back and excited to share with you some photographs/video from this little event the NHL puts on every year -the NHL All Star Game- this year held in my fair city! I wish I could show you some of my own pictures from the event but I was unable to sell my car, house, or soul for tickets so I'm hoping between my words and the pics from the pros, the story will tell itself! First off, can I just toot my own goalie lovin horn and say how proud, elated, jumping for joy I was that my goalie love Sens Avs St Louis goalie Brian Elliott was invited to the All Star Game?!!? There is a good chance I was more excited than he was upon hearing this news. So he in all his handsome sweatered glory:

Jonathan Quick, Tim Thomas, Carey Price, Henrik Lundqvist, and Jimmy Howard came to town to spend the weekend checking out my city! Three of my goalie crushes all in one place...trouble....two of them are in this picture...anyone else wish they were in the middle of this goalie foursome?
 Tim Thomas/Jimmy Howard/Jonathan Quick/Brian Elliott

I'm easily distracted which probably explains why I have watched this about one two hundred times
The more videos I see the more it's obvious goalies are not as weird different as players will tell you! In fact they look like a lot of fun don't they? 

I had originally intended on posting this all in one post focusing on the ASG but there is just too much good stuff to put all in one post (good news because I still must do one devoted to Carey "Could I Be Any More Handsome" Price and one to Jonathan "You wanna pinch my cheeks don't you" Quick) and this one seems to be looking more and more like a Brian Elliott love in (so intentional) so before I head off to goalie dream land let me share with you a few more snaps from the weekend

Media Day
Don't get to see them sans mask and goalie pads very often so this is a little treat no?

Before I leave you behind...let me leave you with a photo of a very fine behind....
