Kristen Bell's Hockey Crush
We've wanted to get Kristen Bell in this space ever since we saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and today is our lucky day. Apparently Bell is a huge Red Wings fan and gave this amusing interview to NHL.com, with the highlight being this exchange: NHL.com: If you could meet any hockey player, who would you meet and why? Bell: Chris Osgood was my first crush. Brad Pitt be damned, he had nothing on Osgood's rookie skill and sad eyes. There was actually a day in high school when I wrote on a name tag 'Mrs. Osgood' and wore it the whole day. I really thought we were perfect for each other. I'd love to meet him and probably apologize that things never worked out. (Thanks to Brian Roth, of Vancouver, for sending us the link.)
