Sunday Services

Well, I’m in Bethlehem, PA today for Erik’s second lacrosse tournament, but I wasn’t going to forget Sunday Services – even though I had to wake up at 5am. Today’s services revolved around St. Louis Blues center Ryan O’Reilly. O’Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy this week for MVP of the Stanley Cup Finals. O’Reilly and the Blues beat the Boston Bruins, so obviously I despise him and the Blues.

But Sunday Services are not about me.

Ryan O’Reilly (born February 7, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey center for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). O’Reilly was drafted 33rd overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche, with whom he spent the first six seasons of his NHL career. In 2015, O’Reilly was traded to the Buffalo Sabres, where he would play three seasons until being traded to the Blues in 2018. O’Reilly won the Stanley Cup with the Blues in 2019 and was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP following St. Louis’ win over the Boston Bruins in Game 7.

There are more photos below the fold…

Ryan’s wife Dayna is a yoga instructor, because of course she is.

Ryan can rock the playoff beard, but it’s safe to shave it off now.

I guess he’s handsome, if you’re into that sort of thing.

The services have ended. You may now go in peace.

  1. Yes, he is definitely handsome. Unfortunately I could be his grandmother in not too many years. Maybe I should check out his dad.


  2. Ronni – He’ll make you feel like a teenager again. 🙂

    Sully – Sorry. They’re passing the Devils as my favorite team. I was cash money during the regular season. Every time I watched, they won. I watched the Toronto series and it was too close, so I wouldn’t watch another game. Felt I was a jinx. My oldest was miserable for a few days – still is, actually – and I was royally pissed. Never thought they would lose a Game 7 at the Garden, and I pretty much despise the Blues now.

    At least the lettering on my Chara jersey – the third with the Bruin on the front – is finished.


  3. The injuries killed ’em… Wagner is a local kid and I know his family… He was trying so hard to make it back on the ice… (he had a steel plate put in his arm just so he could try) The puck just bounced lucky for the Blues. I tip my cap to them. It was a great series…


    1. Chara, Wagner, Millar, Grezylyk (sp?). And they all played hurt, or tried. Hockey players are the toughest of the rough.

      Blues deserved the win, but the B’s will be great again next season.
