About SHR
We’re just two girls who love watching hockey and then talking about it. We’re huge fans of the Dallas Stars – we love the game, the players, and the entire franchise – but we also just really love hockey. This is where we indulge in our minor obsession.
SHR Girls in detail!


The Blog

Stop Hitting Robidas! came to fruition on October 3, 2008. We created it in the post-game high of the intense October 2 pre-season loss to the Blackhawks. We spent so much time talking about it and analyzing it afterwords that we figured we could find plenty of things to talk about on a blog. So far so good on that part! Our goal is to give a unique perspective on our beloved Stars. We want to be informative, but conversational. To us, hockey is about fun. That’s part of why we love meeting other hockey bloggers – and fans! Please don’t be shy in commenting.


Road Map to SHR

SHR Slang: Everything is more fun if you make it your own, and coming up with nicknames and slang is how we make hockey-watching personal to us. Check out this page to read up on our Dallas Stars terminology.
SHR +/-: In the NHL, players on the ice get +1 when their team scores and get -1 when their team gets scored on. Here at SHR, a player can get plus or minus points in a variety of ways. There are two categories – on and off ice. On ice involves things like goals and assists, backing up a teammate, and making a bad pass. Off ice can be something like a funny interview, dancing on the bench, or a generally bad attitude. Head over to the page for more info and to see our overview table and Top/Bottom Five.
SHR Features: Your go-to page for special posts we’ve written, such as “Let’s Talk Stars” or “How to Hurt Turco vs How to Help Turco.” You’ll also find a list of previous Mr. Monday posts, and a list of previous game reviews along with each game’s results.
Categories: Broad and all-encompassing. “Games” are your guide to anything game-related: reviews, live blogs, and notes. Go to “Players” for anything related to the Stars themselves. Finally, “General” is your source for blog-related news and general hockey posts.
Tags: This is where it really gets broken down. Check out the tag list in the sidebar to find your favorite Star, game reviews, discussions about Stars wins and losses, and more.

Again – please feel free to comment on any posts or pages! We love the feedback and often do a little shimmy shimmy when we get new comments. 😉

SHR Girls

Kristine...I’m a 22-year-old relatively new hockey fan! Chelsea got me interested in hockey during the 07-08 playoffs, but I was a casual fan. I started getting really involved in Stars hockey when I met some of the guys at the 2008 ice breaker and now I’m a full-fledged, knowledgeable fan and I can’t imagine not having hockey in my life! The only thing that prevents me from going to every single home game is my job and even that can be dealt with if needed. 😉
Favorite players… Can’t pick just one! High on the list are Loui, Ribs, Neal, Morrow, and Ott.
Favorite 08-09 game… Dec 12 2009 vs Detroit! Also the game where we kicked Ranger ass and won 10-2. I doubt I’ll ever see another 10-goal game in person again.
Favorite thing about hockey… Oh man. Everything? Although, I do love a good fight.
Best seats in the AAC… You know how they say there are no bad seats in that building? It’s true! I appreciate lower bowl for the “in the game” feeling and upperbowl for the passionate fans and view of the entire ice.
If the Stars aren’t playing, I watch… Any other hockey game. Otherwise HGTV is on pretty much constanly.

Chelsea… I’ve been a casual fan for awhile, thanks to our oldest sister, but it wasn’t until early in the 07-08 season that I really started paying attention. Last year especially was when I went from being a Stars fan to just adoring hockey in general.
Favorite players… Robidas,  then a large handful of other Stars. Outside of Dallas, it’s Ovechkin and Cam Ward.
Favorite 08-09 game… October 15, against the Predators. Bunny hat trick! The 10-2 Rangers game was epic, though.
Favorite thing about hockey… There’s so much to like, but.. I’d say how one play can change the entire game
Best seats in the AAC… Lower bowl. I don’t like heights, and the stairs in the upper bowl are steep!
If the Stars aren’t playing, I watch… The Hurricanes or Capitals or Oilers or just the boxscore for other hockey games.
