TWC Needs You!

There are two hockey images that have really captured my fancy over the last few months. The first is the helmet nuzzle, a seemingly universal hockey player form of congratulations; and the second is the image of a guy getting his face smashed into the glass by an opponent at the exact second the camera flashes. It is my dream to one day have a photo database for both of these delightful hockey occurrences. The trouble is, it’s really hard to find these images online. No amount of google searching helps. No, these photos can not be found by searching, they can only be found by aimless internet meandering. Much like true love, if you are searching, you will never find a picture of meaningful helmet nuzzling.


The helmet nuzzle is very cute.


So, Dear Reader, I turn to you for help. If, in your interweb travels, you happen across a photo of either “helmet nuzzling” or “face smashing”, please send it along to me at kholzemer [at] msn [dot] com, or leave a link for me in the comments. I’m not entirely sure what I will do with my eventual collection, but hopefully it will be funny. Help a girl out, won’t cha? Don’t keep that nuzzle all to yourself!

The face smash is very funny.


Don’t you wish you could see more pictures like this? Me too.

    ‘This picture makes me want to draw hearts on it like a 13 year-old girl.’

    I can’t even take credit for the quote; it’s all Elly from NPI, but this *has* stuck in my mind for almost 6 months as a notable helmet nuzzle.

    From the Pens to you! (I love Fleury smiling in this.)

    Take 2…for safety’s sake, I’ll just give you the link to the post.

    I think you’ll be able to spot it. ;) But click the pic to get to the larger version; it’s worth it.
