Hi everyone! Well, we are about to embark on a weekly adventure highlighting one of my favorite aspects of hockey — hot men. Yeah, I’m kinda shallow like that. Sue me.
But I know you won’t want to sue me, because you love it too! I even made a logo for us! So put your bibs on, and prepare for your weekly drool.
Now, of course for this first installment, I’m going with Nikki’s and my all-time sexiest players: Henrik Lundqvist and Vincent Lecavalier.
Oh look, here they are together! I’m surprised that the camera didn’t explode from the HOTNESS it was trying to capture. This was at the fifth season premier of “Entourage.” Nikki and I tried to be in their entourage, but the police kept restraining us. (just kidding. sort of)

Sorry this post was so late, but I had so much fun choosing photos, I got a little too into it ;D Next installment won’t be as fabulous, but really, how could it hope to be? There’s no topping these guys. Unless it’s with a little whipped cream and a cherry……
