Traffic Jam When You're Already Late

The swift arm of the law was brought down upon Chris Pronger on Sunday.
He has been suspended for Game 4.

"It was a reaction play," Pronger said.
"I stepped up to make the hit and got him with my forearm.
Obviously, you have to suffer the consequences of what's come down.
It was a situation we were in last series,
and certainly teammates rallied around me and rallied around one another.
Certainly, we're looking for that again tomorrow."

Isaac Newton, thoughts?

That's the second time you've done it during these playoffs.
Read my third law, jobber.

Great move by the National Hockey League and the Canadian media --
Everyone knows they run the world.

Pronger not only went after them when he got suspended the first time, but the whole Edmonton thing was just bad.
You're thinking, "There's no way that the Canadian media has that much power."

Fact:
Pensblog used to have a writer named George Johnson.
He criticized the Canadian Media in a September post.
The next morning we found him in Mt. Oliver dead.
Pecked to death by Canadian chickens.
RIP George.

How many times do you think NBC will show Pronger in the press box?
15?
34?
What a joke.

How sick was Tom Brokaw?
If you needed a big-time story, you turned to Tom.
He was like the grandfather that probably didn't touch you.


NHL.com gives the national anthem some love.

Who knew a doorman had so much talent.

“It was a big lift,” Daniel Alfredsson said. “It's the loudest I've seen this place.

Yes, Daniel Alfredsson can see sound.


Even this goat, 54 kilometers from ScotiaBank Palace, passed out during O Canada.

However, in what can only be described as some twisted joke,
there will be a different singer for Game 4.


Jagged Little Skank.


The goat kills himself upon hearing the news.

And this leads to the more important question --
How many beers would it take for you to plow Alanis?
This is a question for both men and women.
Over/under: 6

Alanis Morissette's national anthem will determine the series.
You're thinking she is going to fail.
If she chokes, Ducks are winning.
But what if she turns it into Whitney Houston from Super Bowl XXV?
What if she just nails it?
Hockey is the only sport where the national anthem is huge.

Still though,
How could the NHL allow this to happen?
What a buzzkill.

Thanks to Seth over at Empty Netters for this.

The Pittsburgh market garnered the third best TV ratings (2.0)* for Game One.
Buffalo had 3.9
Denver had 2.2

Could've Been Worse. PENS LOSE.

Maxime Talbot had a glorious breakaway and he missed the five hole/Biron made a nice save. If you are a Penguin fan and don't like Maxime Talbot, he must be sleeping with your girlfriend cause that's the only reason you could not like him.
If I had a girlfriend, and she was cheating on me with Maxime Talbot, I'd be pumped.

Crap We Said

  • Why is Ryan Whitney on the power play? I am definitely intrigued to research some crap and see what his powerplay production has been since he's been with the Pens.
  • Shouldn't feel too bad about losing tonight. Buffalo improved their record to 16-2-1.
  • Jocelyn Thibault has proven yet again to be a solid backup.

Hey guys, I made it back to the Burgh after my cross country trip, and have been reading the old posts. Vicious videos, and I like the use of the players numbers counting the days till training camp. Solid.
I've missed the Finals, none of the motels i stayed at had versus, but did catch game three. I still can't believe Ottawa ripped through the playoffs like they did.
I sent the crew some pics of my trip that yinz might find entertaining, we'll see if they post 'em.

The Beastie Boys vid of mine that you posted is solid, but underrated. Pensblog finally gives that song its props!

However, I am a little dissapointed that my little tribute to guys that had no business making music (Eddie Murphy, Deion Sanders) didn't get a second look.

Oh well, I guess I can't win 'em all.

And holy shit-balls!! I remember seeing the Kix video on TV when I was like 6 or something!

#47 is Michal Sivek. That's just a guess anyway... without looking at CommentorBlog first. It sure isn't Micki DuPont. And BTW, how come all Penguins who have worn #47 have first names beginning with M?

Jeremy was a good video, but MTV ruined it by playing the crap out of it in the early days.

PJ kind of stopped making vids after that, but did contribute what they called the 'Single Video Theory' one of my favorite vids of all time:

Do the Evolution

This should have been used as the Pens theme for 'Experience the Evolution' campaign this year. In fact, I talked to the guy who does all the Jumbotron multimedia, who apparently was a big PJ fan and wanted to use this song, but got voted down by others in the organization. Oh well, I guess PJ isn't for everyone, and Vedder's screaming in this song could be a turn off for some. Still a bad ass song, IMHO, and the video is even badder.

Stoosh said...

Jen,

Considering that Reynolds is now allegedly shacking up with Scarlett Johansson, he's now traded up nicely...or at least making up for lost time.

Actually, I'll echo the sentiments of "anonymous"...I've seen Alanis's cover of "My Humps" and she's not bad...not bad at all.
