Meet the Pretty Louies

When a person suddenly becomes obsessed with hockey right before the end of hockey season, it can lead to acts of desperation. One such act of desperation occurred at my house this morning when I found myself on the Sabres website, trolling for something, anything to satisfy my hockey cravings.

When I clicked on the photo album, “2007 Street HockeyFest” my expectations were very low. Street HockeyFest is a street festival hosted by the Sabres outside of HSBC arena every summer. Kids can participate in a sudden death, street hockey tournament divided up into age groups. The whole album is actually quite cute, but in the very last frame, I hit serious pay dirt.

Meet the Pretty Louies:

Aren’t they hilariously awesome? I’m not sure what is going on with the pink shirts and the headbands, but I applaud these boys for their delightful moxie. If you can’t have fun playing street hockey, where can you have fun, right?

Congratulations on your big win Pretty Louies!

    I’m particularly fond of the fact that their goalie seems to thing “Pretty Louies” is synonymous with “Coyotes.” Perhaps Phoenix should embrace this as their new uniform.

    Oh, and seriously Kate, this is by far the highlight of my day, so thank you for posting on it…I keep trying to get work done (yes, really) and then thinking, “Pretty Louies!” and cracking up.

    Meg, I am so glad you appreciate these guys! I wasn’t even sure if I should post this because I didn’t know if anyone else would find them so amusing. I LOVE the Pretty Louies!

    Maybe it’s guys like these that the NHL is targeting with all the pink gear, not women. It would certainly answer some questions (while raising many more).

    Hey, how did you get that picture of the Pretty Louies? Did you capture it somehow? Take a picture of it? What? I need to get a picture out of one of those albums for an upcoming Reason Why I Love Hockey and I can’t figure out how to get it. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.
