Al Gore Is Burning


WTF Commentorblog

Times have changed.
People can't behave themselves.
Commentorblog took a turn for the worse.

In the past few days, anonymous commentors and registered commentors alike have thrown the first punch at Kenny Melvin.

But unlike Rick Tocchet in Game 5 against New York, Melvin didn't keep his cool.
But justice will show its beautiful face.

Enter: Canaan, The Comment Killer.

Any comments referencing Kenny Melvin will from now on be deleted.
Don't waste your time trying to antagonize.


There's a difference between deleting posts because we don't like you,
and deleting posts because the posts themselves are gay.

Canaan is running Gestapoblog from now on.

canaan, you should change your name from "makesfood" to "regulatespensblog" - although, that's a bit long... :)

EmDubs said...

Whew..... I'm glad that's over so I can put up an actual post.

Is anyone who reads this blog that lives in the Pittsburgh area interested in playing dek hockey? I play in a co-ed adult league (18+) and we might need a few guy players for our team for the upcoming season starting in Sept.

Seriously, commentorblog has degenerated into an Ottawa Senators fan rally, if ya know what I mean.

EmDubs said...

Western area YMCA to start, then indoor at Bridgeville Rollerplex when it reopens in October.... games Tuesday nights

Korn said...

wow, is that the place with the mini ice rink? Used to play ice and deck there many moons ago. Smells of old sweat, old fryer grease and fumes from the ancient zamboni. Good times...

Christina said...

thank god....commentorblog has been way too crazy recently.

ps. i agree completely, dwayne

EmDubs said...

They pretty much knocked it to the ground and rebuilt it over the last year..... so everything is brand new now.....

Jonny V said...

In the spirit of Jasper, the rules of commentblog:

Criticizing TPB staff of their jokes about the Steelers? That's a paddlin'

Complaining about TPB staff's affection for using images both homoerotic and morbidly obese in nature? That's a paddlin'

Bitching about jokes made in Dany Heatley's expense? That's a paddlin'

And brewing up a storm leading to entire comment logs being deleted? Whoa, you better believe that's a paddlin'...

Ryan said...

I'm with ya adrienne, I go on vacation for a week and chaos ensues.

Sounds like we should be glad we missed it tho...

Thank you staff! I was starting to get tired of reading commentorblog.

I hope this place doesn't get as vanilla as LGP.

wilsmith said...

Damn, I was about to offer my 10 years experience in forum moderation. You better believe that's on my resume. You think controlling those /b/ tards is easy?


Good luck, Canaan.



Now, important question.
tpb is many things, and one of them is the home and many pop-culture gurus. That being said, what was the name of that MTV(I think it was MTV, it had to have been) show where one of the characters had a lawn-mower blade stuck in his head?

Korn said...

The Head.

Vern said...

was the lawn mower blade from liquid tv? early 90s, spawned "the head", etc?

Gary Roberts said...

I figured this would be fitting as a handle as the commentorblog maintenance man.

handle honorable mentions:

"Judge Mills Lane" - im sure this would've gotten old rather quickly.

"Famous Warren G and Nate Dogg Song" - awesome, but too long.

"Judge Dredd" - no description needed

But anyways, have fun, thats the point of commentorblog...dont let it become falloutblog again. cheers and love.

email me (patragas@gmail.com) if you have questions, concerns, or criticisms. peace. love. penguins.

Well played, staff. Commentorblog was going to hell. I feel better now that it's (hopefully) all about hockey. And jokes in terrible taste.

I would suggest tuning into the Fedko fonezone tonight, I sense a major jobbing upon us.

Hooks Orpik said...

I, for one, welcome our Canaan overlord.

Kenny Melvin said...

If you get the chance do a google search for Gary Roberts and turn the safe search off.

Anonymous said...

Is there really going to be a jobbing on Fedko tonight? I don't want to watch for no reason but I'd love to see it live.

Kenny Melvin said...

I encourage everyone to join in, if possible. It doesn't have to be Gary Roberts, anything to make Fedko look like a fool.

FritoWill said...

we really need to rethink this offseason commentorblog thing....


damn i miss hockey

Spencemo said...

I'm with you, adrienne...I was on vacation last week, and, apparently, all hell broke loose again...

snoopyjode said...

spence, adrienne: be glad you missed it.

Stoosh said...

emdubs,

Do you know if the same people that run the rink down at Bridgeville are still the same ones who ran it about five or six years ago? We used to have a team down there, but we left because we got sick of playing the same twelve people every game. There seemed to be a group of about 10 or 12 guys down there who all played and rotated between about three or four different teams. We'd sometimes play the same guys in consecutive games, despite the fact that each game was against a different team.

It just got old after a while, especially since we were supposed to be playing in one of the lower skilled leagues and these guys were clearly playing down. We went out to the Montour YMCA for one season, but it wasn't all that much better. Half of those guys played on teams out there, too.

By our own admission, we sucked and we didn't practice all that much. When we got into it, we were primarily out there to have fun and maybe win a few games...unfortunately a lot of the other teams took it a lot more seriously than we did, or these rinks just gave no consideration whatsoever to separating teams by skill level.

nice pic J Schiff

thanks for putting it up guys

Steve In Denver said...

Dek Hockey is a blast....I miss it a lot. I played for years & yeas in Penn Hills. Roller and ice is all we have out here.

I'd love to bring a team back to Pgh to play in a tournament. Anyone play competitively?

Sounds like everyone took their prozac and it's back to biz on the blog. It sucks that every single internet forum turns into romper room. Canaan, you're the canaanny now.

Kenny Melvin said...

Please guys job Fedko tonight, he's definitely due

EmDubs said...

Stoosh,

There are new owners. They don't even have their own dek league there anymore, actually.

I play through Pittsburgh Sports League. There are about 8 teams that play regularly every season and they all have their own players. There are maybe a few people that show up on a few teams. Its fun because its competitive, but noone takes it too seriously.

Stoosh said...

emdubs,

We organized a hockey team during my last couple of years of college (1997 and 1998) and played down at the Ice-O-Plex in one of their rec leagues. They did a great job there balancing out the talent as much as possible. We got our asses kicked a few times, but also blew some teams out as well. We won our fair share of games and it was fun, so when we started playing dek hockey a couple of years later, I expected the same thing and it just wasn't the case. We probably should've checked it out first to see what we were getting into, but we did have a few guys on our team who had played before at Bridgeville a few times.

Nevertheless, it just wasn't what we thought it would be. The roster enforcement that was promised wasn't there. The rules enforcement was sketchy because half the time the refs either didn't know the rules, or they were too busy bullshitting with their boys on the other team. I know even dek hockey is going to have its incidental contact and I didn't mind that. But if I'm going to stand in front of the net to try to screen a goalie and get abused like I was Gary Roberts against Ottawa in the playoffs, I'd much rather do it on the ice when I've got some padding on. It was ridiculous.

We eventually got so disenchanted with the leagues that we ended up quitting and just playing pickup games at random. There was a group of about 20 of us that played, so we'd set aside a Saturday or Sunday, break off into a few teams of five or so, and play a round-robin tournament or something like that all day. It was a hell of a lot more fun.

Good to hear Bridgeville actually got their crap together. I don't know if I'd play dek again, though. I'm working on buying new gear to get back on the ice.

Hey, Snoop, I'm thinking...

I think it has a ring to it...

snoopyjode said...

nice, spence. i like it.

rwarner174 said...

emdubs,

I think you should clarify that this is a co-ed league.

Adrienne said...

Where would the league play at, and how often?

EmDubs said...

Western area YMCA to start, then indoor at Bridgeville Rollerplex when it reopens in October.... games Tuesday nights.... once a week
