Sweet Escape

Pop Quiz hotshot.

How are Gwen Stefani, the Ottawa Senators, and the in game entertainment coordinator of music for the Buffalo Sabres connected?
(Well at least to us, but remember we have nothing to do.)

Something we noticed when the Pens were playing the Sens was that the during a lot of the breaks between plays, the homos that run Scotiabank Place music always play "Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani.

Flash forward to Saturday night.
Double OT.
Buffalo takes an icing penalty.
The in-game coordinator cues Gwen.
Face-off.
Clean win.
Shot from the point.
Game.


"How can you play a Gwen Stefani song before a face-off in double OT."

.....................................................
Half ass post tonight in honor of Alan Faneca.

The only pancakes he knows of are on the first page of the Denny's Menu.
Dick

If Mike Tomlin had any guts he would strip Faneca of "66" and then bring Gary Roberts in to beat his ass.

...................................
Canada vs Finland for all the marbles
We'd shove our opinion down your throat, but this isn't Letsgopens.com, and since we didn't invent hockey like some of the members there. Whats the point?

Picture: Two Letsgopens.com message board members take a minute to make out with each other after making a great point about something that probably no one cares about.

I thought I was the only one that noticed the Sweet Escape being played at every chance. At least these pics made me laugh. Still screw the Senators.

Faneca isn't worthy of 66. Loser. Roberts would destroy him. And the gay jokes don't get old.

only the truth, everyone at letsgopens.com thinks they are above everyone else.

And btw, I'm sure they weren't bashing everyone at letsgopens, just asshole know it all's like yourself.

didnt the letsgopens bash gary roberts or something like that?

WufPirate said...

The comment fodder comes alive in the NHL playoffs doesn't it?

Dear Penguins Fans,

Just in case you didn't know:

We all pull for the Pens for the most part in Raleigh. Sure, Sid is Sid, and Malkin is Malkin (being hunted down by the KGB).

But we all enjoyed watching Staal Jr. because he is Calder trophy worthy. Oh yeah, and he's somebodys kid brother or something.

Staalsy (the old one) had somewhat of an offyear. But he as well our Canes did truly have: The Dreaded Stanley Cup Hangover. We're somewhat content that ownership and management didn't trade away our future for a potential slight chance at facing the Buffa-Slugs in the 1st round.

(p.s. - Not speaking for all Caniacs, but this one in particular pulls for Pitt except when we have to play you. Then, it is ON damnit!)

point is............you didnt make the playoffs this year.

Maybe I missed something, but how many votes do letsgopens have on the Blogger's Choice Awards?

Oh yeah....20, yet thepensblog has 95.
So, suck on that!!!

P.S. I'm still banging moms for Mother's Day (because I can). So yours might be next.

I used to be able to drink my coffee and/or eat my breakfast before work, while reading your newest post...
Lately, not able to do either without ruining my keyboard.
You guys are still making me late for work!

Then this morning, I see the gay pic with this caption...

Hahahahaha - priceless ;)

thepensblog, finally has something to do this offseason.


Are we calling war on lgp????


They can't take us, look at Fedko, look at Kansas City....its on, like donkey kong.

dying alive said...

I didn't even notice the Gwen Stefani song. I was too busy hearing them play I'm Shipping Up to Boston 200 fucking times. Give it a rest, Buffalo music coordinator guy. It's a good song, but damn.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, God Forbid people actually talk about hockey. I'd be mad too if I knew nothing about the sport and just talked about poop and homos all day.

In fact, your obsession with gays really has me concerned. When is Pensblog officially going to come out of the closet?

Anonymous said...

LGP is fruity. Jesse has her panties in a bunch about this one.

Dwayne said...

Why would it have you concerned? Are you trying to get first dibs or something?

Loser.

Anyway, TPB clearly owns LGP, and that's really all there is to say about it. The nubs at LGP clearly take themselves entirely too seriously and can't have fun, and if you can't have fun, then what the fuck are you doing talking about hockey? Shouldn't you be participating in sports talk of a more serious nature, like cycling or golf or something?

If you can't talk about poop and homos all day, why even live life?.

We tried to get out of the closet, but it was so packed with lgp members we gave up...

dying alive said...

Is TPB vs. LGP going to become like the east coast rappers vs. west coast rappers feud?

Staff said...

hahaha oh man I just saw they posted something about this on their site..

Hilarious..

I will say this though, lgp is a far better site than the old penguin message boards. That place is awful.

At least Jesse didn't post something about begging people to go read faceoff-factor.


Good times

AnotherUrbanSunset said...

Anonymous people gay for LGP: it's a bit hypocritical to accuse the Pensblog of being "childish" and even to say they don't talk about "sports" when your comments on every post are some kind of attack on them...

Bring up some bloody sports talk and maybe'll you get some in return.

So please, stop flooding the comments page with these attacks that are completely sports unrelated.

Go back to arguing about how Dany Heatley should be allowed to be a free man, at least that was closer to sports...

hey noob, i dunno if you realized it or not but TPB is a blog LGP is a message board.

ANY WHO:This site is more of making fun of things (from what i have seen, but i haven't been on here long) then hockey talk. LGP is more for hockey talk (from what i have seen). they (both sites) (imo) are reaching for two different audiences and if you don't like either site then don't go to it.

Jonny V said...

As a loyal TPG reader since about october, I gotta say these guys do know alot about hockey and definitely bring it in their game recaps. They gots talent.

However, since the end of the season, it has gotten a little bit cliche'd around here with the homo shit and Steelers bashing. But hell if it bothered me that much I'd make my own blog, but that ain't happening so I'll leave it to the professionals.

I forget who said it, but it brings to mind a quote. "If you ain't pissing some people off, it's not worth doing." Keep up the good work guys.

And holy shit, the Pirates have scored 13 runs today. WTF

What does faceoff factor have to do with this? I like that place and this place. Different sites, but both are great.

look at the nhl.com frozen moment -- is that gary busey in the front row above the pepsi logo?

Yea its the off season we are bored. If we didn't have pensblog to run we'd all be jail.

Lets go pens blocked us from registering.

Who ever posted that heatley pic is money in the bank..hahaha

Jesse Marshall said...

Hey Adam, what did I do to make you dislike me so much?

Barrasso35 said...

It does sort of look like Busey.

Staff said...

i wish somebody would make a site that does nothing but hate on us.

it's the offseason. we are bored.
if jesus christ ran letsgopens, it wouldn't change a thing to us.

anyone who thinks we're offending you, you really dont have a sense of humor.

you know how much leverage we have in the pittsburgh sports world?
ZERO.

No one cares what we have to say.

No one takes anything we say seriously.

If you take what we say seriously and you get offended by anything we say, you got to relax.

Jesse Marshall said...

Adam, I'm not offended. But since it isn't the first time you've said something, I was just figuring you were serious.

Dwayne said...

Jesus dude, they're *never* fucking serious. They could be at their mothers' funerals and they'd probably end up cracking jokes about gay priests, Sean Avery, and John Fedko.

All it takes is about 15 minutes to realize that they like to joke around, a lot, and if you can't figure that out, then you *are* going to end up getting your panties in quite a goddam bunch.

Seriously, it's like this: expect every single word on the blog to be a joke. Be surprised when they're serious.

Doing it the other way around is just way too much fucking work.

Anonymous said...

cry more.

Tee said...

I hope the entire LGP posse gets a bus ride from Dany Heatley to their next orgy/pickup game. And if anyone survives, I hope in doing so you accidentally stumble past the "no trespassing" sign on Gary Roberts' lawn. I think I'd rather die bleeding profusely from the 20% of my body not burned beyond recognition then go face to face with a pissed off Gary Roberts.

SUCK IT LGP, SUCK IT LONG, SUCK IT HARD.

Staff said...

Jesse,

Just so you know, it was me-derek who fired the shot at you, but I am sure adam thinks your a joke to.

-derek

Staff said...

and the whole reason I said anything was because someone said you guys were flipping about the heatley thing.

And if you job one of our commentors you job us

Jesse Marshall said...

Derek, I never said anything about the Heatley thing. I wasn't talking about LGP, either. I was just wondering where the dislike for FF came from. I don't think I've "jobbed" anyone here, ever.

Staff said...

Jesse,

It is a joke man, relax. Your the one who made a thread about it.

Jesse Marshall said...

Derek,

Forget the thread. The entire thing is dumb. Good luck to you guys this summer. Keep it up.

questions (since i am new here) wth does "job/jobbing" mean... and why do all the people that "run" this blog all write under staff? why not have your name then staff?

as as for the seriousness stuff... i just went over to lgp and they had a lot of serious topics and on this blog there is serious stuff but mostly a lot of pics so i would think that lgp is more serious (but this is all at first glance, and again i am new here so don't start bashing me for anything)

Staff said...

Anonymous,

Welcome the blog. Job/jobbing means anything you want it to.

We created the staff name because we all contribute to the posts. We used to have our names on our post, and we still have our own personal accounts we just don't feel like using them.


As for letsgopens and us its really a non issue. We are two different places. 50% of the content on here isn't even real.

ok good to know thanks!

I used to be a big fan of LGP - typically just a reader of the boards, not a poster. However, I've been increasingly dissatisfied with the up-tight tone and know-it-all attitude from posters on that board. I go there to get Pens info and end up having to read a bunch of douches try and prove their the next Pierre McGuire. And Pierre McGuire is a terd.

The Pensblog has come along and filled my desire to get quality Pens coverage with a good dose of levity...

By the way, I'm the one posting the Heatley photoshops in the thread where everybody is arguing about how terrible the Pensblog is... Word.

Staff said...

hahaha J-Schiff I thought that was your original work.

Great stuff

rachel said...

That photoshop is so wrong, but it still entertains me.

All the Pens at the WC got a medal. Staal and Armstrong got gold for Canada. Armstrong had the GWG and was assisted by Staal. Ruutu got silver for Finland. Malkin and Gonchar got bronze for Russia.
That's the way to end a game... Ouch

i post at both sites and enjoy both sites. =) Ive been friends with the staff for a long time and, as an LGP poster, do not feel offended by the pic/comments. i think its funny. if you cant joke/laugh at yourself, youre gonna be a bitter person in life.

p.s. this site needs more jim the anvil neidhart references, just saying. ;)

Anonymous said...

I like both sites, TBP and LGP. I just get a little tired of some of the people at LGP constantly trying to play policeman. Get a sense of humor.

Don't even get me started on the people who just bash away at the same players constantly. We get it, you don't like Melichar. You don't like Scuderi, Gonchar, Malkin, etc. Move on with your life.
