Hi All!
Well, the Olympics are over, and I must say, London did a smashing job.  I enjoyed every minute, even though there was no hockey. And if you say, “There was Field Hockey,” I’ll say, “Child, please.”  That is not hockey.  It is soccer played with mini sticks.

At any rate, I’ve been saving bits and bobs I’ve collected over the summer of our favorite Sexy Saturday guys, and since there is all this depressing talk of strikes, and collective bargaining, revenue sharing, and those ass-hats Bettman and Fehr fighting over our sport like dogs on a meaty bone, I thought it was time to bring some Sexy Back.

I must say I am a bit bummed at the slim pickings this year, as far as getting half-naked beach photos of Letang or Hank or the like, but then again, there was BRAD RICHARDS FULLY NAKED, y’all.  I can’t be too greedy.

Brad in this year’s issue of ESPN The Magazine‘s Body Issue

Oh Holy Jeezuz.  I think I love you, ESPN.  Despite your shitty hockey coverage. I know Nikki does….

And we have video!

Excuse me, I think I need a moment.  *ahem* Okay, back now. It seems to me from this video, there were better poses of Brad they had to choose from. I’m not crazy about how his face looks in the above photo. But let’s be honest, is anyone really looking at his face?

Now that we’re on Brad, let’s just have him kick off the summer photo parade:

Brad is getting his own episode of Beginnings on MSG Networks this year!

Brad with Brandon Prust earlier in the summer before the trade. We’ll miss you in NYC, Prusty, but will look for you with fellow S.S. alumni Carey Price in Montreal!

He says he’s learning to play guitar. If he and Hank have a band, I will be a psychotic groupie, I’m just warning you now.

Not to be outdone, Henrik Lundqvist also had some summer tunes being played:

Just chillin’ outside.  Wowzer.  My phone has a new wallpaper.

Here’s what else Hank was up to:

With Garden of Dreams kids and his Gold Medal.

Watching Jeff Gordon NASCAR. In Chucks.

Hank became a daddy!! Thank goodness he’s passing on those genes.

Posing with Boyler at an Esquire shoot.

And we’ve got video! Click on the link:

Hank interview on Blueshirts United

There is a part one and two, so make sure to watch both.

Okay, since we had Brian Boyle in Henrik’s pic, let’s catch up with him:

Inigo Montoya at the beach. Sorry ladies, but who wears heels to the beach? Really??

Backyard baseball, shirtless. Yes, please! Lovely musculature, but man, that’s a whole lotta hair under that cap!

Speaking of hair, what is Kris Letang up to? Other than waiting to be a daddy…

At Flower’s wedding. Kris wins the “worst summer haircut” award.
Really, this was the best photo of the bunch, the others were much worse. I’m not sure how this travesty happened, but it needs to be covered up with a hat or helmet. Pronto.

Yay, a hat!! Thanks to Max Talbot for having a charity street hockey event, so we could see some Letang skin and muscles.

Here is Marc-Andre Fleury and his bride Veronique, in case anyone wanted to see them. Lots of photos over at 25stanley.com

And we’ve got Tanger video!  I have no idea what he’s saying most of the time, but I just love hearing him talk:

Kris talks about Pens controlling their emotions – en Franscais

So hey James Neal was at that wedding too.  Let’s look in on him:

“I love my purple and plaid.”
(Sorry the photo is so narrow, I had to crop out Crosby. It would have ruined my blog.)

Nealer at some other wedding — Staal’s maybe? Not sure…

Nealer at  hotel with fans. Yumm-o!!

Now I feel like some Carey Price.  Come on down to the Price is Right!

Carey just turned 25 on August 16th! Happy birthday, Carey!

Pricey does rodeos during the summer. In this case I’d love to save a horse, ride a cowboy…..

Carey is now a spokesman for Under Armour.

*squeals*

And we have video!  (Tyler Seguin fans will love this too.)

Whew, I think I need a shower to cool down after all this, and I’m not even done yet people!  This has got to be the sexiest blog post yet — they’re all here at once. My computer may explode.

More Sexy Saturday alumni:

Dan Girardi playing goalie for his son Landon in the upcoming Beginnings episode. Awwww!

Carl Hagelin on a boat in Sweden with his dad.

Swagelin

Jaromír Jágr is now a Dallas Star. Yay, I can finally see him play!

Vincent Lecavalier at a charity event this summer. Oh, to be a lightning bug.

I couldn’t find any other summer photos for the remaining Sexy Saturday boys, but I’ve got some summer photos of future ones!

Ryan McDonagh shooting his episode of Beginnings. Can’t wait for these new shows to air!

Michael Del Zotto fishing in Canada. And all I can see is the front of his shorts. Is that the bait he’s using? Consider us caught!

Goofy MDZ at Batman 3D.

Ruslan Fedotenko also at Flower’s wedding. So sad he’s not a Ranger anymore, but Flyers fans should be happy.

Gabriel Landeskog at a charity event. Sweden in the summer must be a magical place.

Viktor Stalberg in a boat. Swede, boat, summer. I feel like I’ve said this before……and it is a recipe for SEXY.

And last but not least, this photo of a sexy beast was sent to me by the lovely Connie (@cjribhill) who, though she is a Florida fan, we love anyway:

“this is my boy Nash “Noodles” (after Rick & McClennen) lol We now have a LOT more in common!”

Welcome to the blog, Noodles, you may be our new mascot. And welcome to the Rangers, Rick Nash.  You may be a future Sexy Saturday.

 

SUNDAY EDIT: Just found some Stamkos for you guys:

Steven Stamkos and Claude Giroux during off time from the Bauer Pro Camp. Let’s hope neither one puked their guts out — that looks like a scary ride.

With some future Markham hockey stars.

Anyone I missed that you guys want me to investigate?  Please comment below.  Any pics you found you want to share? Drop us an email at vickyandmikkis5hole@gmail.com.  As always, we aim to please.

Now, go put a cold compress on your eyes — they need a rest after this post.
