It seems like this has turned into a birthday blog, not a hockey blog. And for the few of you out there still reading this, I apologize.  Between Calder Cup playoffs that I am working, to Stanley Cup playoffs that I am watching, and that weird thing called “Real Life,” the posts have fallen behind.  I keep promising that will change in the off-season, and maybe this year I will keep that promise.


That all being said, let’s get on to the real reason for this post — the bestus hockey blog partner, Miz Nikki, has a birthday today!

Brad was all excited.

*ahem*   That’s the BEST. PRESENT. EVER.


Hope you have a great next year of life, my friend!

Hey, long time no see, eh guys?  Well, you know I’d be back for March 2, even if I’m getting here under the wire. So….

Happy birthday, Henrik (and Joel)!  32 never looked so good!

Thought I’d throw a little Swedish Olympic hotness in there.  You’re welcome.  Hank looks happy too:

Speaking of relief, Hank has a new Advil commercial!  You know, for those morning-after-birthday hangovers.

Only link I could find is Advil FB page. Click here to watch it!

Even a badass rhino is no match for the King.  Animals got nothin’ on him.


Celebrate like the Beast you are, Hank!!

We love ya!! Here’s to the next sexy 32!


Wow, another year has gone by, and the boys and I are back to wish the best blog partner a very happy birthday.  Gentlemen?



Aww, they got dressed up and everything.  And I couldn’t have said it better myself — Happy Birthday, my friend! Here’s to another year of fun times together, and of course, hockey! *mwah*



I know a lot of you are Brad Richards haters but we here at the 5 Hole love him! I (Nikki) have loved this hockey player since I was 16 and today day 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the New York Rangers we want to celebrate Brad on his 33rd birthday.

Damn he makes 33 look good.

Yes that’s a Stars jersey but I love him scruffy.

Why yes we would love to go wine tasting with you.


He wears a suit so well.




Happy (Belated) Birthday to Dan Girardi (yesterday) and Chris Krider!


He cleans up so well.

He looks good when he’s scoring those goals!

Happy Birthday fellas! Hope Torts didn’t work ya too hard!

Hey, guess who turned 26 today?



Awww, don’t be shy, Tanger!  You’ve grown up so much.  Remember this picture?


Look at that baby face, and your whiskers were just beginning to sprout!

Speaking of whiskers, we have a birthday meow for LeKitty himself:


Hope you are having a good one, m’seur! A pool party, perhaps? Count me in!


You know, they sure do grow them pretty up in Quebec.  And another joli Québécois with a birthday this month (April 21) is Mr. Vincent Lecavalier:


He turned a gorgeous 33.  That one is for you, Nikki….

So, happy birthday, boys! Party ’till you drop!

Today is the birthday of the best blogger buddy a gal could ever have!! In honor of her birthday I have created some very basic birthday cards. I don’t have Photoshop so when I say basic I mean BASIC! They were made with love and that’s all that matters.
