Eastern Conference Eye Candy: Nicklas Backstrom (Washington Capitals)

Kena wrote this a few weeks back (way before I started the EC Eye Candy posts), but we didn't know where to put it or how to treat it. I thought this would be a perfect place for it now.

Ok, so I'm being bad. I'm abandoning my "boys" in the Western Conference (sorry boys but I can't help it, but I know you'll understand), and "ahem" spreading it around...

As anyone who's read this feature for any amount of time has learned. And if you're new, your getting initiated quick [hysterical laughter]. I'm very eclectic with my moods, and I usually just "let fly" with what I say, think and do. So, this post is off topic, but not really.

IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: If you've seen virtually any Washington Capitals game highlights (and who hasn't, they roll them out like ---, you've probably seen him, but you may not have noticed him (the media just kind of ignores him). BUT, he's the one who makes Alex Ovechkin look so good. He's been leading the Caps, in Points and he's way up there in Goals too. (I think "the Great Ovi" is the only one ahead of him in Goals on the Caps, and where do you think all those passes were coming from? huh? [No, I don't like Ovechkin, how did you guess?]) He's very good at hockey. Very, very good and I like watching him play when I get the chance.

THE REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: I've had a crush on this guy for what seems like forever. I can't stop it and I can't hide it anymore. [yes, I realize, how corny that sounds]. He's (again) my usual type, which I'm sure you all can recite with me. 6'0" 183lbs. Blond and Blue eyed... Adorable Swedish accent. Kinda shy. [THIS VIDEO (yes, he's sucking on a cough drop, and HOLY HELL, um, I have to go take care of something, I'll be right back!)]. The fact that he can't grow a beard [don't worry honey, you get it right eventually]. There are also these!!!!! [Link HERE & HERE ] Where he adorably tries to teach us all a little Swedish. (Although I freely admit, Swedish guys do not have to know any "english" to speak my language!!!). He's a poster boy for "perfect hockey hair" and never bothers to try to be too "stylish" or a "playa."

Hopefully next week, I'll be able to concentrate, on my WC boys, and my "wild-oats" are sown. Probably not, but you never know...

Backstrom's cute enough, but suffers from "Swedish Hair", an affliction shared with Toby Enstrom...those pretty faces but when they take their helmets off you wonder if they own a comb.

I'm so glad to see someone else has an obsessive crush on Backie like I do! (I found your blog searching for pics of him! HA) I was lucky enough to meet him last month and let me tell you he is EVEN CUTER in person. He was totally flirting w/me which just made my obsession even worse! Thanks for the post on the hottest Cap out there (and there are quite a few)! :)
