'Gossip Girl', The CW Rule Yidio-Man Cave Thoughts Celebrity-Crush Fantasy Hockey Draft
Once upon a time, a careless Yidio writer made an off-hand tweet during the NHL's 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs that led to a completely unnecessary, disturbingly well thought-out debate with a writer and podcast host.
All I did was harangue my good friend, 411mania.com and ManCaveThoughts.com writer and podcast host Jeremy Lambert, about a fickle crush on a mixed martial arts promotion's ring girl and what it meant for a previous object of his affections, UFC cutie Brittany Palmer. Still, inspiration works in mysterious ways.
Lambert tweeted back at me, unsurprisingly framing the issue in hockey parameters, that Palmer could still play on the "third line" of his team any day.
And somehow, this broke down into us deciding that a discussion of where we would place various attractive, comely famous faces of the fairer sex on respective fantasy hockey teams was a thing that had to happen. So Wednesday afternoon, two men in their twenties discussed with insane attention to detail where our respective noteworthy crushes would play on our teams.
Of course, posterity had to be considered, so the whole chat debuted Thursday on the latest Man Cave Thoughts Podcast. Jeremy expressed a consistent lack of surprise at my picks - especially that I was quick to "draft" the oh-so-womanly Christina Hendricks to play goalie without a second thought - while I chuckled to myself that "team chemistry" had him picking the CW talent pools of "Gossip Girl" dry with Leighton Meester and Blake Lively among his earliest picks. Other draft picks represented the likes of "Psych," Nickelodeon's "Victorious," CBS's "2 Broke Girls" and even a "MythBuster."
