From People Magazine, a future NHL.com celebrity blogger in the making:
Hilary Duff can put away her Hockey for Dummies book. She’s a full-on fan now, thanks to boyfriend Mike Comrie of the New York Islanders.
“[Hockey] has kind of been a new obsession,” Duff told PEOPLE at Monday night’s premiere of her new film, War, Inc. “When I’m in New York, I’m going to hockey games a lot.”
And People isn’t even kidding about the Hockey for Dummies book—apparently she’s been studying hard.
(I know there’s a Mike Comrie joke in here somewhere, but I refuse to take the bait… I’m trying to act more mature these days…)
From GossipGirls.com (...because apparently I have no shame):
What do you get for the girl who has everything? No, really, when you’re buying for Hilary Duff, that question must ring especially true. And her boyfriend decided to take a trip to the Mercedes dealer to celebrate her birthday.
And oh what a present he got her! Duff’s boyfriend, Mike Comrie, called her up to say that he’d purchased an early 20th birthday present. “I hope you like them,” he told her, faking her out totally. The singer/actress told press she was thinking, “Okay, it’s shoes or something.” But when she went to her sisters house to get the gift, she was awestruck.
Rather than shoes or earrings, or matching hockey pucks with their names on them (Comrie is an NHL player) she found a $100,000+ Mercedes Benz G-class SUV with a big red bow on top.
You know what my coolest birthday present was this year? A book, Canucks Legends, by Jeff Rud. And it’s great, but perhaps dating Mike Comrie is a better idea than I had previously considered.
Meanwhile, these maniacs have only been dating for 2 months. Imagine what Christmas will be like.
