Fedko = Stunned

Nothing going on.
More coming tomorrow night


Jeff in Korea said...

Hey Commenterblog.

(Canaan, please read before you nuke.)

It seems Empty Netters picked up Fleury's new mask from a blogpost on "City of Champs", and just underneath that was a post in which I was called a douchebag. Now I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm just saying that the sheer volume of indirect traffic that post must have gotten has got me thinking.

Do I want the majority of Al Gore's interwebs thinking I'm a douchebag?

I guess I don't.

I mean, my Mom reads the internet sometimes, I just know it. She can't operate a toaster or set the VCR timer, but I'm sure she can figure out the internet. It's not that hard. Technically, then, it's possible that my Mom will read that I'm a douchebag, and the thought of that breaks my heart.

I need to be honest here, I have always read the pensblog for two reasons, namely:

1. I went to school with Pensblog Adam, and he was one of the cool guys I always wanted to hang out with but who was in a group I never really fit in.

2. I couldn't always catch the Pens games, and this blog has the best recaps in town.

What I didn't read the blog for, was the extra stuff, the off season stuff, the commenting, the jobbing fedko, the pictureblog, Jobbers, or anything else.

I suppose I somewhat selfishly wanted the Pensblog to be just for me, feeding me the information I wanted and not anything else. I guess I hoped that Adam would get famous through this thing and do really well for himself. I guess I thought some of the high school level antics on commenterblog didn't fit with the image I had in my mind of what this blog should be.

This whole exchange thing has made me think a bit. Who am I to come in here and say what anything should be? This is your blog, you commenters. You've made it what it is. If you want to do something on here you have every right and nobody, including myself, should be holding you to a standard you don't already meet.

I'm not going to apologize for what I've said, because I stand by it, but I am going to apologize for having the wrong attitude about this blog.

I promise, Pensblog, commenters, Adam, and everyone else, that I will take this blog for exactly what it is from now on.

Anyway, since everyone else pimps their links on here, I figured I can link you to my new blog, though I don't care if you read it or not.

I don't know if anyone here will care, but Korea is a really interesting place, and though I tend to be a bit cynical I will keep my scathing commentary relegated to my own net neighborhood and save the pensblog for strictly Penguins hockey.

I don't want to be a douchebag.

Ming the Merciless said...

I feel ya dude. That whole thing with he who shall remain nameless going off, (calling everyone names, among other things) and now everyone's all buddy buddy with him like nothing happened...I don't know, I just think he's been given too many chances to act like a civilized person. Maybe he won't be a douchebag anymore. Oh well, who cares...not like it matters, but I lost some respect for this blog (not like that means jack squat)

But maybe it's for the best, with what they were talking about this place being moderated in a nazi-like manner. It just seems like what he said doesn't warrent being a participant here anymore.

Karri said...

This whole situation is so volatile. I hate to "take sides", but...I feel I need to say something. I don't want this starting into a war. My opinion means nothing, but I must say...

I agree with Jeff and Ming...

Before nameless one started commenting here...Commenterblog was a place where you got to read the opinions of both the staff of thePensplog and the readers of...

If some Anonymous person started to job, he was either ignored or humiliated.

Some of us, after voicing unintelligent views, have seen the "staff" post our dumb comments months later. Gratefully, we can maturely laugh at this. ("Gary Roberts is too old"....ugh...I'll never live that one down.)

I don't like the fact that some people have been able to single-handedly ruin an extremely fun time.

I feel the pain of the staff. What are they supposed to do. Make everyone register? But sucking up is something I prefer not to do.

If this view means that I can't comment on the blog anymore, well then, I guess I'll just read it.

Tiffany said...

It's a little difficult for me to comment without sounding hypocritial, but I can't help the fact that the Fedko jobbings made me giggle. (Sorry that rhymed.) (^_^)

But I see where you're coming from, Jeff, & you have every reason to not wanna be known as a douchebag...because you're not. You're a sweet guy who got fired up & fed up with a few things that day.

The ridiculous behavior that went on the day Commenterblog died was inexcusable, though. Things got really out of hand really fast & it shouldn't be like that. This is supposed to be our "happy place" where we can talk about hockey & sometimes non-hockey related things (as some commenters pointed out).

Nobody wants Bickerblog & things seem to have calmed down since then. Hopefully it'll stay that way. So, with that said, (fast forward 'til it says 7:10) I wish that I could bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles and we'd all eat and be happy.

Anonymous said...

The same phenomena occurred @ LGP, so this actually has happened much more than the couple times seen here.

Korn said...

I don't think I've ever wanted a hockey season to start more. Then we can actually TALK ABOUT HOCKEY and this can be Pensblog again, instead of Expressmyfeelingsblog.

Captain Dummy said...

UGH! hockey season please get here. i think some people need a hug. why do people take it so personal what people say on here anyways? just log on, laugh, and go on about your day. maybe leave a comment or two. no biggie!

why is fedko SUCH a toolbox? i love the random "gary roberts" as he was going off after the fake voice hang up.

good "job" guys! keep up the good work!

Captain Dummy said...

NOT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT... but... did you guys see this on "netters"???

The NHL has released training camp info for all 30 teams:


Phoenix Opens Sept. 13 Arena (Glendale, AZ)

LOVE the name of that arena!!!

snoopyjode said...

WEAK. i can't see the fedko video until i get home. (no joke: we aren't allowed to have sound cards/speakers at work.)

aaaah, i guess good things come to those who wait...

Spencemo said...

Snoop, I watched the vid before I came in today. We get to have all of the soundcard/speakers we want, but the firewall eats YouTube. I'm pretty glad, though, that I don't live in the Pgh area, because, if I had to watch that guy on a regular basis, I'd probably build my own gallows. What a tool.

snoopyjode said...

ha ha, spence, we have the opposite problem: i can see youtube stuff, i just can't hear it. how lame.

the area i live in is kind of weird when it comes to sports coverage. i live (basically) smack dab in the middle of the state, so i get some pgh channels and some philly channels. for better or worse, i do not get the channel fedko is on.

sometimes i wish i did, so i could join in on the jobbing.

Barrasso35 said...

Excellent jobbing, guys.

I really love his reaction... he gets off on it. It's as though he knows that more people are watching the show on the nights he gets jobbed than on any other night.

I can't wait to call this douchebag next year when I'm in town.

Jeff said...

Watch who you're calling a douchebag there, Barasso. It stings. It really stings.


Anonymous said...

I love the Pens Blog, but after the other day, It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. The fact that the nameless one can come back and everyone is friendly with him is a joke. You should reread what he said about this blog and some of the people here.

Jeff, you are not a douchebag.

hooks orpik said...

The falsetto of the third voice makes the whole thing. Tremendous work.

Korn said...

In regards to this on yesterday's post:

"Speaking of Pens uniforms, any word on a 40th-anniversary patch on the uniforms this year?"

The Pens will not be sporting a patch this year. Apparently there was disagreement over how the lockout affected the total (is this their 39th or 40th season?) so they're skipping the patch.

wilsmith said...

Agreed with the whole lot of the posts.

And tiff, I was reeeeally hopeing that cake baking thing was heading towards the "Cake Song" video from the Lazytown cartoon. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you look it up. It will be stuck in your head all day.

wilsmith said...

I can spell hoping. Awesome.

theNick said...

90 percent of commenterblog is a joke right now fucking 90 percent of the people here are jokes. this thing has fallen so far since the season ended it isnt even funny. Also much respect to jeff in korea if for no other reason than snake motherfuckin plissken

Jeff said...

If I ruined things, everyone, I apologize.

I merely attempted to acquit myself from this conflict in the most tactful and respectful way possible. I expressed my perspective, and I think some people have identified with it.

It looks as if in order to put this thing to bed once and for all, I am going to have to take the high road and just concede that I am, in fact, a douchebag.

In my defense, at least I'm "Summer Breeze Fresh."

Anonymous said...

I am a joke, but at least I am an anonymous joke!

And the Fedko clip was indeed top notch.

You guys couldn't be gayer said...

Steve In Denver said...

Nice job getting the Fedko video up so quick. Hilarious.

Here's a little clip for all of you to help deal with your "feelings".

Karri said...

Steve in Denver...hahahahahaha

Spencemo said...

That may be true, Jeff, but, what does "Summer Breeze Fresh" smell like in Korea? It can't be good... Especially not with all that kimchi floating around over there...

Jeff said...

Well, it smells like fermented chili pepper queef.

However, if it's honesty you want, it's honesty you'll get.

I just hope my Mom isn't reading the Pensblog.

thepensblogderek said...




We appericate the feedback.
All I can say is this.

If your problem lies with Melvin, bring it to him.

The more you clutter post here with the issue, the more it will not go away.

And I think I speak for Adam on this as well, the furthest thing from our minds is getting famous,or anything like that.

We enjoy what we do on the blog,but the day it becomes work, is the day we will walk away.

Hence the offseason.
We have no idea what we are doing.
We don't think about it.

Ming the Merciless,

I have no idea what you are talking about.
If you ever has respect for us I am sorry.

In the end if you don't want to read, comment or converse don't.

We have said it a million times.
We enjoy our commentors/emailers more than anything.
Comments will always be open, unless it is some pointless comment that Canaan even hasn't had to take out yet.

Spencemo said...

That's what I was figuring, but I wanted to be sure. I don't like to make assumptions about these things...

Jeff said...

So Staff, you'll have Canaan start deleting posts where people call me a douchebag?

Jeff said...

Let me add an addendum.... this has never been about Melvin.

Did Abraham Lincoln obsess about his retarded cousin Ethel's piano recital in the middle of 1864? No. There were bigger issues at stake.

The real issue here is selective censorship. We're either all allowed to say whatever we want, all the time, or we're not. You need to make a decision about it, and I think it would be good for everyone if you dropped any kind of censorship beyond spam removal.

Anonymous said...

"CityofChampsblog said...

You've ruined things once again Jeff. I don't get why your first comment wasn't immediately deleted. Commentorblog today should be about how great Fedko jobbing is, not listening to your complaints.

8/16/2007 10:18 AM "

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain?

Jeff said...

You know what, just forget it. I need to go to bed.

It's obvious to me that no matter how much I try to explain myself or present well thought out arguments or show the hypocrisy that is infecting the pensblog like e. coli, it won't do jack. I'm going to go the way of Ming, and Karri, and whoever else, and get my recaps somewhere else.

It's a crying fucking shame.


Dwayne said...

Srsly guys, if you don't like pensblog commenterblog, don't read it. I only read it about once every 5 or 6 days now. It's clearly not the place for me, and I'm fine with that. Derek and Adam can run this however they damn well please, and what's more, I'm not even pissed they chose to run it this way. There's nothing wrong with letting people run amok. It is the fucking interwebs after all.

With that said, there's not even a semblance of actual discussion about hockey anymore. It's just dbag after dbag acting the part of fools. Only on those really slow days do I delve into commenterblog, and usually then just go "oh jesus christ" and click another bookmark.

Maybe when the season starts, it'll get better again. Maybe it won't. Who knows? The main posts, when they're real posts, are almost always solid. They're a good start to my day each morning. I don't see that changing when the season starts, either. In fact, it can only get better. And I'm content with that.

thepensblogderek said...


peace and thanks for reading, the whinning display you have been on is just retarded.

The only "censorship" we are going to have is against people creating fake names.
And if you really know us, you'd know that will prolly last like a week.

Maybe we didn't make it clear enough,I don't know or care anymore.
The whole idea of deleting comments, was to take out the people who make fake names and register.

Not to mention posters like Jonny v,canaan, tiff, karri, spencmo, rachel, snoop, barasso, fritowill, willsmith , loserchris , thenick and all the other regulars would never be editted, ever for any reason.

Commentorblog is getitng blown up tonight and who knows when it will be back.

thepensblogderek said...


thank you, well said

Rob said...

Staff that is bullshit.

I read this blog thing a lot, and I don't usually say anything, but you have a double standard around here. That Melvin character can do whatever the hell he wants and get away with it, and when a guy like Jeff in Korea tries to turn it into a joke and end it you call it whining.

I think I'm blowing my pensblog bookmark up, and who knows when it'll be back.

Steve In Denver said...

Can we do a "worst Penguin to ever wear the jersey" poll or a "biggest douche in hockey" poll or something to redirect the energy back to hockey?

Dwayne said...

Sean Avery.

thepensblogderek said...

see ya Rob

There is no double standard.

Melvin has been told just as much as anyone, but how is it some people , like the commentors I mentioned before, can handle him?

To prevent future situations as the one earlier this week, all we said was that we are going to delete people who come in here and just make a fake name to job.

That is it.

I thought the whole thing was over until Jeff posted his life story as the first comment, thus making this process repeat again and again.

This is just awful anymore

Spencemo said...

Ed Belfour

Kenny Melvin said...

Very nice Spencemo hahaha.

Jeff I don't like you and I have made that abundantly clear but I was going to let crap go. No one on hear comes to hear your whining and complaining. You started this whole string of comments that again brought commentorblog down to a very low level. No one wants to hear your sob stories about your mommy being upset that I called you a douchebag. It's called the internet.

snoopyjode said...

JEEBUS, WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? i get busy at work for a few hours and shit goes down yet again! weak. now i know how all the vacationers felt the other day. i won't waste your time with my opinion - you can just check out my new avatar.

now, i am seconding the motion to nominate sean avery for the "BIGGEST douche in hockey" award. he's a shoo in.






Anonymous said...

Commentorblog should be shut down until the season starts, no doubt. When there's Joe Melichar to complain about people usually don't tell their life stories in the first post. I still think this could have been averted if Canaan deletes that first post right away.

Jeff, you come off as a sissified bitch. Go cry somewhere else.

I don't condone the first batch of comments, but I do laugh at them. The rules, list of players that follows, etc. is pretty funny. Check the Don Cherry comment in particular.

Holy crap, Steve in Denver..... that was completely hilarious..... that's what commentorblog is all about..... ha ha ha

since commentorblog is going might as well end with this while we're on Gary Roberts

Gary Roberts trade negotiations

wilsmith said...

If you want be on the internets, then you have to be able to hit the "ignore" button in your head.

Kenny, do that now with everyone that insults you. You've proven you can go on a rampage capable of ruining commentorblog (just as much so as the people on the other side of things, just so you know I'm not placing blame), so c'mon, for the sake of everyone else here, just ignore whatever people say to you instead of fighting back. If you ignore it, and instead begin to contribute positively, people will begin side with you.

I'm not siding with or against you here, just saying what you need to start doing asap.

I think everyone here could benefit from hitting ignore once in a while.

biggest douche: Brett Hull. I've never hated a player more.

snoopyjode said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! DON'T TAKE AWAY COMMENTORBLOG. damn it. some people always have to ruin it for everyone else. (>_<)

snoopyjode said...

ooooh, good call on brett hull, wilsmith. but you have to admit, sean avery is a worthy adversary to hull for DB of the universe.

Jason said...

"biggest douche: Brett Hull. I've never hated a player more."

i agree, brett is a douche, but i can definately think of a player ive hated more: adam graves. i've still never forgiven him for that slash.

Winner of "Biggest Douche in the Universe is...John Edward"

Sorry, had to put the South Park reference in there...

Wow Snoopy those jerseys are almost as bad as their Captain Gordon's ones a few years ago.

Barrasso35 said...

First of all, for everyone, Tom Barrasso's last name is spelled B-A-R-R-A-S-S-O. Two Rs and two Ss and secondly how did Commentorblog overtake The Pensblog in importance? I don't think it has but everybody else (except The PensStaff, of course) is acting like they think so.

Who gives a fuck what is going on in Commentorblog? This site is about hockey and humor, not what is or isn't deleted on Commentorblog.

Commentorblog is here for us to say things like, "Did you see that save MAF made in the third last night," or, in the offseason, "Did you see Fedko's head explode when The Pensblog Derek told him that Gary Roberts should be the manager for the Bucs?"

The series of tubes known as the internet was invented for us to download porn and read humorous blogs. If you want to bitch and argue, go the HF Boards. I know I had quite a nice argument over about a week long period with some douche clot who thought Gretzky was better than Lemieux.

Fuck that guy and fuck Gretzky.

And for the record, I have no idea what went on the other day because they completely blocked Blogger URLs from work and I only check Pensblog in the mornings, except on my days off.

P.S.- Tiff, I think you need to job Fedko soon. It was most classic the last time, you broke his heart.

Captain Dummy said...

first off, can larry richert go down as "celebrity biggest douche in hockey?"

biggest d.b. in hockey: sean hill. that douch jobbed crosby all season! i hate that guy!

as far as the "saftey orange" in the islanders uni's... at least they have a better chance at not getting hit picking up trash on the side of the road next off season!

EmDubs said...

I hate Larry Richert. His son went to high school with my brother and Larry yelled at me for talking to my mom during graduation. Ever since then I have prayed for him to get a raging case of herpes.

jazzhall said...

I should be thankful for that momentary glimpse at Fedko's routine. Having grown-up outside of the reach of PCNC but within the viewing area of WPXI and the Fedko Zone, that was a sad display. The random jobbers on the ESPN AM radio as I drive through central PA to DC are better. I've been away for a while and didn't notice if anyone had seen that Nils is off to the homeland.

Lastly, there was some pop song on MTV2 this morning before departing for work that had a kid wearing a classic pens tshirt from like the 1970s. Amusing how often Pittsburgh sports logos appear in music.

Alright, back to the well titled "bickerblog."

Ming the Merciless said...

Haha "bickerblog", I believe this is due to the stinky days of summer. Holy shit, I had no idea all of us would be this cranky this off-season. Reading through all of the posts, Jeff (i think it's pronounced respek), You guys couldn't be gayer, wilsmith, and a big shout out to steve in denver for two attempts to bring levity to the comments today...A youtube clip of Beaker? And that list of famous hockey players on that page had tears in my eyes...Zob Rimmel, Tom "Old Balls" Fullerton, Enrique Gunter Garland Priegnitz...Good find my friend.

Oh and i was on the message boards at and in one of the posts, they were talking about buying the new sweaters. I guess this is for those of us in the area, go to Giant Eagle, and they should have giftcards. Right now they're having a promotion for double fuelperk points with giftcard purchases. If you're going to be getting a jersey, or anything from that website anytime soon, why not get a free tank of gas out of it?

Tom "old balls" Fullerton said...

Tom "old balls" Fullerton, aka Steve in Denver, fully endorses the 65% of positive comments in commenterblog, and hopes that everyone takes a dump, wipes, flushes, and life goes back to normal.

In a related story, the fury on commenterblog, coupled with the wrath of Gary Roberts when he stubbed his toe running to answer the phone, threw the earth off it's axis and caused an 8.0 magnitude quake in Peru. Subsequently, a North Korean nuclear missle test went astray due to the quake and killed Jeff in S. Korea.

Peace to Jeff and his mom, who, by the way, is completely internet savvy, and knows that kimchee is code for all of Jeff's asian porn.

I can't understand the Fedko prank with the high voice. I've listened to it 7 times or more, and I can't understand what is said after Fedko says, "What's up, Jimbo?"

Everyone get over it.

On another note, I keep seeing this AWFUL image of what the TBL jersey is getting changed to- and it makes the baby jesus want to cry... Caps jersey is cool++ now though :)

As for Fedko, what a tool. If they do actually rent out a bar, I nominate everyone to show up wearing Gary Roberts jerseys :D
