Another Habit that Needs Broken

I almost forgot about this little video clip. It's from Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.



I have four months to get the Toddler to knock off the first part of that clip.

Just to be clear, she's yelling "Shoot the puck," not something that happens to rhyme with "Shoot the puck" that may or may not fall out of grown-up mouths during Steelers/Patriots games around this house. After spewing what I happen to think is one of the more annoying things a hockey fan can yell, she then goes into something about Ryan (Malone) and then cheers for Flower (Fleury).

Yes, we have created a hockey monster.

And, yes, she needs to quit yelling at the TV during games. I know that works for some people, but I'm here to tell you the players, refs, and coaches can't hear you. Shocking, I know.

(Sorry that this isn't a "real" post. I was too busy changing up the template again. You like?)

  1. I love the new look. The picture at the top is great especially with the background.

    My hubby yells at the tv and scares the kids sometimes. This is the only time he ever seems to get angry, which I can find very frustrating at times. He used to throw pillows at the tv when we first got married, but I was not about to put up with THAT. I have my limits, you know.

  2. Great template!

    I'm not allowed the MLS package at my house because our kids would start yelling at the TV as well.

  3. Love the new look as well. I don't know of any sports fan who doesn't yell at the TV. In my eyes, your raising her right! :)

  4. Sounds suspicious to me.

    Digging the new digs.

  5. I love the new look. I also love that you change it up- makes me feel better for not being the only one who needs to play with the look from time to time.

    I thought Alexis was saying 'chicken butt' but knew that couldn't be it. hee hee hee - funny though!

  7. It looks great :) I wanna be smart enough to change my look!!

    The video?! Seriously. She's KILLLING me!! I can remember growing up and my Mom yelling at the tv during football. God how I hated Sundays :)

  8. I love the picture, love the typestyle, and love the color!! At first the type seemed smaller to me, but now it seems fine. I really need to add a picture to the top of mine, huh? Is that hard? I'm computer challenged you know.

  9. Yup, another one who loves the look! The picture is great, as well as the colors, the whole thing--how do you do this anyway? I loved the chubby little hand clutching the Penguin, but this one actually looks summery. Good job!

    And for once my dirty mind DIDN'T go into overdrive, because at first I thought she was saying "chicken pox"--just the first time she said it, though. Very, very cute. And also quite hilarious. I come from a long line of sports-fans-who-yell-at-the-TV, and they've even been known to jump up off the couch/chair/whatever while doing so!

    Your kid is a BLAST, even if she is choosy about the company she keeps. BWAHAHAHAHA!

  11. Wait, are you sure they can't hear you through the tv?

    (love the new layout.)

  12. I love the new template! My kids yell at the TV, too. And I'll take the kids yelling over "Barko Ruutu" any day.

  13. *LOL* I shout at the TV too! And just like a man I expect the players to listen (they really hardly ever do). *sigh*

    Adorable clip!!

  14. I beg to differ. Yes, they can hear me yeling at the TV and until some one can prove to me otherwise I'm going to keep on yelling.

    Oh, and this is my favorite banner yet. I gotta get on changing mine, one day...

  15. I DO like the new template and header photo.

    Mr. Lemony and Emily are huge basketball fans. They crank up the TV volume so they can hear the announcers over their extremely loud cheers.

    I hide in the bedroom with the door closed to avoid hearing damage.

    This is your future.

  16. SO cute! I actually thought she was saying "chicken butt!" at first, but "shoot the puck" makes a bit more sense.

    I *love* the header picture. It's absolutely perfect :)

  17. Like the new look! It looks great!

  19. All of us Canadians were cheering for Pittsburgh in the game. Your team is amazing. Young, but great. Next year for sure.
    Nice clip, great blog. Thanks for doing this!

    I love the new header. As a mom, I understood that was "shoot the puck," but I had the toddler watch the video of "your friend Alexis" and he thought she said "CHICKEN POX!" with major exclamation. SOO cute.

  21. I love that kid.

    (And the new header is my FAVE!)

  22. Yes, love the new look.

    And really, there could be worse things than a hockey fan. I mean, she could NOT like it, and that would be sooo much worse, right?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your daughter is so hilarious...you need to send one of her cheer videos to the team!

    Yes, like the new template...love the new header...I am not a sports minded person, I actually had to read your blog to figure out what the heck that funny stuffed penguin thing was on the other header...this header is for the reader impaired. Or, something like that, only funnier.

  24. I do like! And it's a real post. And I heart Alexis.

  25. Love her.

    Love the new look.

    Love you.

    That is all.

  26. love the new look. very burgh baby'ish.

    and alexis? is hilarious. even if she is THAT GIRL.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the new header. Shoot the Puck? Uh-huh riiiiggghhhht. I love that Alexis is a hockey fan.

    And if this doesn't count as a 'real' post, I'm in serious trouble.

  28. First of all, I love the new header. Fabulous picture.

    Secondly, after I watched the video, I made Jon come in and watch. He LOVED it. He did one of his goofy, high pitched laughs that is usually reserved for Adam Sandler or Jackass. And trust me. THAT is a supreme compliment coming from him.

  29. LOVE the new look! And I love Alexis videos! And my kid does say F#ck. and correctly. Not so much now since we ignore it when he says it. This one was the realtives on Bud's side.
    Of course if it reappears during football season it is SO not my fault. Ahem.

  30. That's hilarious!

    BTW I love your new look, well done.

  31. how cute! and to think, maybe if the guys saw their little cheer-leader, they might've found that last itty-bitty tiny bit of hidden umph to get them to win! ;)

    And I love the new look...that bluey-greeny color is one of my favs...and the color Tuscon I want (not that I'm getting one anytime soon, but a girl can dream).

  32. the refs sure couldn't hear me yelling "quit blowing calls to extend the series for Gary!!"

    sorry about your Pens. A little. But my daughter dances to "Let's Go Red Wings" and she'll do that forever.

  33. Like the template. LOVE the video. I thought she said "Chicken Pox!" HA!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love your new layout and especially the picture at the top. What kind of camera do you have? Your pictures are always so great!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I thought she was saying "Shoot the ball!" until I realized it was hockey. Looks like you got a sports fan on your hands...

    (I'll have to watch the cutie on the clip tonight at home.)
