Tuesdays with Mario

So, the other day we happened to be reading the most popular website between ages 18-34 in Pittsburgh:

Mondesi's House.


And while we aren't his biggest fans, this is a solid idea.
He wants to know "Why your team is better than the 2007 Steelers."

Of course, being that we don't root for anyone besides the Steelers,
we decided to tell him why the 2007 Penguins are going to be better than the Steelers.
And being that he hates us, and rightfully so, we figured he won't have guts to post it on his site.
So we will post it here instead.

..........................

Now, as always, you must remember that we are Steeler fans --
have been since we were 5 years old and the Steelers had a magical ride in the 1989 playoffs.


Never should've lost to John Elway.

And we firmly believe that you can be fans of all three sports here in Pittsburgh.

The 2007-08 Penguins > 07-08' Steelers

Reasons Why:

5. Sidney Crosby is better than the Big Ben.
4. Pens play a harder schedule.
3. Pens fans will be in better shape to cheer when it matters.



2. Better Ownership.
Mario Lemieux has scored 690 more goals than Dan Rooney.

Number 1 reason.

Because of that stare.

Go Pens.

Anyways, nothing going on.

Except for some jobber coming into Commentorblog to plaster his new blog.
Just e-mail us if you're gonna start a blog.
We'll mention it without jobbing you (maybe).

The Burgh Sports

Whatever.

You can go there for the Steelers recap.
Or just go to every AP article about the game on the Internet.

We recommend our blog affiliate
Steelersblog



We also want to say hi to our friends at Eddy Spaghetti
Solid site.

Speaking of solid, Snoopyjode gave us a link about the new arena.

"You would be able to say what you like and don't like," said Urban Design Planning representative Don Carter. "I think people, for the first time, understood where the building was going to go, and (I) think it was very enlightening for a lot of people."

In case anyone was interested, we have an idea where the arena will be.


Is this right or wrong?


This was the one sketch we could find that gives a proportional view of the arena.

Another view from Jake Wheatley's house

Oh wait, it must be on the other side.
Sorry Jake.

Winter in the Sun
Game #67
March 8, 2007
Point Taken. PENS WIN.


4 - 3
SHOOTOUT




Emily Pandolfo scored her first career field-hockey goal on MAF's sister in 2004.

The third period commences, and the Devils start clamping down the trap.


Devils coach Claude Julien invites little boys over to play MouseTrap at his house.
If the boys lose, they are molested.
Claude Julien's record: 120-0.

Mayhem ensues in the closing minutes.
Malkin being taken down along the boards brought everyone in the Mellon to their feet, screaming.

Rasmussen takes a cheap shot on Rex.
Rafalski takes a cheap shot on Malkin.
Malkin responds with an elbow.

Malone plants Jonny Oduya with an inverted DDT.

People start getting out of the way of Gary Roberts.
Bodies, sticks, elbows flying everywhere.

Colby delivers the knockout punch on Brad Lukowich.
Lukowich is down on the ice, while the entire Mellon Arena crowd is still on their feet...and booing.
Great sight.

The referees lost all control of the game in those last two minutes.
(Fast forward on the google video, it gives you chills)

"The Devils will trap until the rapture..." Or until the fateful day that Brodeur hangs up his skates and decides to become a full time refrigerator magnet salesman. Awesome game, esp. the last two minutes, I love to see that type of hockey without players actually getting hurt, or taking hockey sticks from a two handed slash from a Native American.

Tiffany, u have me convinced that you are Pensblog's answer to Adam Sandler. How u come up with those lyrics so quick is a gift, you've been blessed girl.

And at least there was "substantial progress", instead of quotes saying that it was all for naught. Like a few of yinz said, until those moving vans come to the Igloo, there is still hope!
