Are the Winter Olympics responsible for my thinking that hockey is now hot, or have hockey players always been stealing the ladies off the market? When I usually think of hockey I think of smashed teeth, pucks flying, and beating people with sticks (a lot of fun where you can beat the shit out of people).

The men are the definition of tough men, so why not marry them? The only reason why I’m flabbergasted that these players are putting rings on beautiful celebs is because they aren’t in the news all the time and are extremely hot (or is it just because I don’t follow this sport?).

Here are 5 couples of  hot ladies and hockey players. Note: Most of the players’ names are Mike. Coincidence?

1. Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie

Hilary Duff's Engagement Ring Revealed

They recently got engaged in Hawaii. Who knew that Hilary Duff was dating this guy for two years? It’s weird when the Disney actors/actresses act all grown up. And plus, Comrie is in his late 20s!

2. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

This Fan Film is Born of Awesome!

Get ready to go back to Middle-Earth, because this looks good…

Born of Hope is a feature length prequel to the Lord of The Rings trilogy created by Kate Madison, an aspiring director, actress, and obvious fan of LOTR.  Coming in at a price tag of $39,310, Kate spent her entire life savings on this project and has been greatly rewarded.

With the amazing, and I imagine mostly free, help of hundreds of actors, actresses, and obviously talented make up and digital crews, this film has managed to pique the interest of some of the big shots at WETA Workshop (the people who made the Hollywood films).

It’s available online for free, and any person who considers themselves a fan of the fantasy genre in general should take a look at this.

Southern money, elongated hospital scenes, and, of course, unrealistic everlasting young love. Sounds like yet another Nicholas Sparks novel-turned-film. Maybe it was a mistake to have seen Dear John in theaters – I’m not a crier, and let me tell you, it felt like everyone in that estrogen-filled theater was bawling by the time the opening credits were finished.

Except for the total of three boyfriends who looked like they had been reluctantly dragged by their significant others. My heart ached for them.

Taylor Swift, I don’t even know where to start. I used to love you. Yes, shamefully I was just as obsessed with T. Swift like every other teenage girl. The problem is, that I grew up and Swift has remained the same. While I can still jam out to “Teardrops On My Guitar,” I’m tired of her same old routine.

Who's this handsome devil?

Who's this handsome devil?

At the Institut d’Etudes Politiques, or Sciences Po of Strasbourg, the girls outnumber the guys 10 to 1.

Feeling that Lady Luck was with me one day, I decided to ask this one girl out to lunch. What could be the harm in sharing some good old cafeteria food? (Secret Milillo trait I picked up from my Uncle Angelo, may he rest in peace: when asking a girl out, for example, to the movies, tell her specifically to meet you at the concessions’ stand).

I met her at the student cafeteria on the corner by the tramway stop and we went in. We stood in line, placed the food on our trays, paid separately, and sat down. Crowded. Noisy. Cheap food. This girl had no idea what she was in for. (more…)

Hot mama, Jennifer Anniston looks like she's doing well post-Brangelina drama.

Hot mama, Jennifer Anniston looks like she's doing well post-Brangelina drama.

Think back to early 2005, the world had just learned that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were breaking up. I remember being absolutely shocked, if they couldn’t make it, then who could? Then remember the tabloid speculation that Brad was having an affair with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie? Well, that turned out to be true. Brad dumped Jen, they got divorced, and now 6 children with Angelina later, the media is still watching all 3 actors with rapt attention.

Walking past the magazines by the checkout at the supermarket, I couldn’t help but notice how many covers are still devoted to this “love triangle”, 5 years later. Poor Jen, if I were her, I’d be more than pissed by all the attention. Why is she constantly portrayed as this old maid who it still pining over Brad and is incapable of having a functional relationship with other man. She’s supposedly been clingy and jealous in all her relationships since Brad.  And then, everyone read heavily into her post- Brad movie choices, movies with titles like The Break-Up and He’s Just Not That Into You. Ouch, poor pitiful Jen.

While moseying my way around the world wide web, I stumbled upon a blog that had an interesting take on the spring 2010 couture shows. This particular blogger took a look at a few couture shows and saw one thing: pokemon.

The notion is pretty crazy, but after looking at the photos, I can almost see what he is talking about. The puffy pink ensemble on the Givenchy runway is a dead ringer for jigglypuff. This concept is absolutely farfetched. My guess is that it wasn’t the designers intention to send ninetails or jolteon down the runway–but this blogger’s vision definitely translates.

Check it out for yourself, what do you think?
