Tag Archives: LOUI LOUI!

Some Updating is in Order

So I haven’t blogged for a whole week and a half.  I haven’t been able to because last week I went down to Dallas and attended the Stars-Blackhawks game on December 29!  I got my picture next to Stu’s head!  It was a lot of fun and I hope to go to more games in the future.

Some Thoughts From the Past Week or So:

Loui Eriksson’s hat trick was flipping amazing.  But then again, Loui is flipping amazing.  With the win over the Ducks, that’s two new Year’s Eve wins in a row.  That’s also two years in a row with a shorthanded goal by Loui Eriksson.  Interesting.

I love how the NHL’s 3 stars of the week  are all current or former Stars.  I giggled when I first saw that.

You do realize that Wednesday’s game is one of the most important games in the history of sports, right?  It’s a game the Stars HAVE to win.  Otherwise, I’ll just die.  The Stars and the Rangers face off.  The biggest story is Sean Avery.  This is really the first time I’ve ever wished injury on a player.  I truly hate Avery’s guts and I want revenge for what he did to the Stars.  With that in mind I wouldn’t be surprised if he feigns injury or something to get out of the game.  I’m not gonna lie, but I’m looking forward to this game.  If all goes right, it’ll be some intense hockey.

Go Stars!

Lovin’ Some Loui

Great article on NHL.com about Loui Eriksson today.  What’s so great about it is the fact that I learned more about Loui’s as a person and his background.  I mean, he’s always so quiet, and we just don’t learn much about him.

Until now.

Loui’s dad’s name is Bo, and Papa Eriksson taught Loui some great lessons:

“My dad always told me you start with small goals and then listen to other people who know more about the game than you do, work as hard as you can at the things that will make you a complete player and then have confidence that your drive will take you to your dreams,” the 24-year-old winger from Goteborg, Sweden said. “Yeah, I was real skinny, but I was confident I had the skills to some day play in the NHL.”

And did I sense some snark in there?  Ow, ow, Loui, you studmuffin.

Here’s the sweetest quote that came out of it:

“This year, I came into camp with more confidence after last season. But then, I’ve got more responsibility, too. Her name is Elle. My wife, Micaela, gave birth to our first child just before training camp. Now, I’m not only working for my wife and myself, but Elle as well.”

Awwwwwwwwww!  And I absolutely LOVE the name, Elle.   Elle Eriksson is one of the sweetest names I’ve ever heard. 

I hearted Loui before, and now I heart him even more.  He is our Swedish stud.  God, I love him!
