APRIL 2008 WWGRD CONFIRMATIONS

This is pretty self-explanatory.

If you're not on the list, then either you're a joke or we're a joke.
This list was done on the fly, no double-checking.

The packaging of the wristbands themselves was triple-checked,
so if you're number is wrong on here, it doesn't necessarily mean you were jobbed.

E-mail us with any concerns.
Don't e-mail us poop.

Sorry for breaking the cblog string during the Game 7's

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Go Caps. Show some discipline and stay out of the God damn box.

Flyer Hater said...

BUTTman is a ****ing joke. Giving the CRAPitals a 5 on 3 in a ****ing game 7. New NHL is a disgrace. I bet Cindy Crysbaby and BUTTman are jerking each other off in the New York league offices right now.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@FH

this game has already surpassed the excitability factor compared to last nights Mayhem[Outside]in Montreal.

coffeytalk said...

I made the list! I'm a Rockford Peach!

PittHockey said...

now I'm going to be checking the mail everyday

PittHockey said...

so, turk, how exciting are 6 burning police cars?

johnny said...

Huet = stunned

Dr. Turkleton said...

@pitthockey

6???...try 16...

any more non-calls like on that 2nd Flyers goal & this might be the sequel to the White House being burned down [or at least DC Chinatown]



[Hossa]

Steve In Denver said...

NHL Network, 1981, Pens vs Blues playoff game. Tripdownmemorylaneblog. That's right around when I discovered the most exciting game on the planet.

Greg Millen rocking the #29. Randy Carlyle on D. Bugsy Sr.

Wooooooooo!


Bracelet recipients - be extremely careful the first time you lift or push something after donning the WWGRD. I accidently ripped the bucket off of my front end loader with my bare hands.

eileenover said...

Who would've guessed, douche Downey got a penalty.

Hip said...

Sounds like a brutal non-call - Caps fans collectively getting their nooses.

coffeytalk said...

ovie tied it up.

or sorry, the nhl tied it up.

Hip said...

Ovie = a lifesaver. Literally.

Flyer Hater said...

It's official, we're opening up on Friday whether it's the Rags or Craps.

eileenover said...

So who's up for tailgateblog Friday?

Hip said...

Well I'll be cowkicked. I'm camping in Yellowstone Friday night. Gary help me if I don't have cell phone service.

Shit!

Dr. Turkleton said...

@FH...

I think opening Friday is Network BS....why so many extra days off for the NYR or Caps to 'rest'????
oh, I see...so NBC can have the Pens on Sunday....Montreal & the CBC get their HNIC game on Saturday....[MAJOR sarcasmblog]

Hell...maybe the Pens will play Friday, Saturday AND Sunday to get the FULL MONTY effect from NBC

Bettman & Daly kissing Network Execs asses = jokeblog

Flyer Hater said...

This game will be tied at the end of regulation but Bettman will come out and announce that there will be a sudden death shootout to decide the series. Biron will be forced to play blindfolded with one hand behind his back.

Pensgirl said...

Thanks for all the hard work boys. That's a hell of an effort.

I have friends in southwest VA who just texted me that they've been watching the playoffs in hi-def. These are football people who have never seen hockey, ever. Hi-def is doin' its job (and so am I - they're on the lookout for the Pens).

Cody said...

Huzzah.. I wonder if the post office can manage not to lose my bracelets between Pittsburgh and Reno... my money is on no... I wonder if my WWGRDs will be the furthest shipment.. anyone got me beat? I've got 2,407 miles from the Charleroi, PA post office to my door.

Hope I get them before Game 2, looks like I'll be rocking the WWGRD shirt to work (Thank god for casual fridays).

Stoosh said...

That was a pretty nice Eric Lindros impression Hartnell just did along the boards.

I wonder if Scott-ro can do "Deer in Headlights with an 18-wheeler Bearing Down On It" as well as Lindros used to do.

eileenover said...

Hartnell=stunned

Stoosh said...

What a day. Cloverfield hits DVD and the WWGRD bracelets get confirmed.

Had to go all the way down to the April 21st list...had to admit, got a bit nervous.

Yet there was the name! Two bracelets! Woo!

I just hope that when these show up in my mailbox, my street doesn't implode from the concentrated awesomeness.

Clinton N said...

Honest to God, I wrote-in Gary Roberts for President today.

Stoosh said...

@ Flyer Hater -

Actually, I have it on good authority that if this ends in a tie, Bettman will halt the game before the beginning of overtime, walk to center ice, pick up the puck, walk it down to Biron's net and place it behind him. He'll then declare Washington the winner.

Sooska said...

literaryreferenceblog
I am glad the Pens are on Friday because I will be back in the Burgh and get to watch but is the NHL going all Diana Moon Glampers, Handicapper General, and giving the impression they aren't trying to get Sid in the Finals by resting EVERYBODY? By Friday the Pens will be like the Tinman.

Flyer Hater said...

Stoosh, another rumor I heard floating around was that the NHL has paid off Biron and he will turn heel in the first five minutes of OT, rip off his Flyers jersey and screw them over. Fireworks will go off and Kevin Nash will greet him as the newest member of the NWO.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@hip

be sure to pack your bear repellent OR a WWGRD bracelet will suffice...

Pensblog Staff said...

oh god game 7 OT

Pensgirl said...

FH, wouldn't they just go back to what works and pay Backstrom to...oh, wait, wrong team.

This is what it's all about. Sudden death, life-or-death. Woooooo

Transportationblog: the DC metro stops running around midnight. Three of the five lines stop directly under the VC. So if this game goes into the wee hours, that's a shitload of people who have to find another way home. I have no idea if they'd keep a couple cars running under that circumstance or what. But there might be tons of people in the streets looking for cabs. That's not good...

Dr. Turkleton said...

@stoosh

cloverfield = thank Gary I didn't pay to see it & got a bootleg version a couple weeks ago...

America's Godzilla???

BlacknGold66 said...

I've missed a lot of cblog action today/tonight.

I'm guessing the schedule was released for Round 2.

Can someone give me the details please?

I'm looking at you Flyer Hater.

Flyer Hater said...

BNG 66, they showed the second round schedule on Versus during the game tonight and they said that we'll open on Friday whether we play the Caps or Rangers. Then we'll probably be on NBC, Sunday afternoon.

So who gets the GW in OT?

Backstrom for the Caps

Backstrom for the Flyers

Annie said...

RE: 1981 Pens - also #9 is Mark Johnson, son of Badger Bob and member of the 1980 Miracle Olympic team. The color commentator is also Mike Eruzione, the captain. They're going into 2nd OT.

Caps/Cryers in game 7 OT, my 10 greatest Pens games on DVD arriving in the mail, and WWGRD wristbands confirmed the same day? This is what I'd call a Good Day.

BlacknGold66 said...

FH = clutch

Btw, that Backstrom comment is money. Sid yelling "Did he shoot that in his own net?" etc. has been my alarm clock since the event. I always wake up in a good mood.

michelle said...

LMAO @ Flyer hater

April 12th baby

Pensgirl said...

BNG that's a fab choice for an alarm! Unless she's changed it, it's what my mom hears on her cell when I call her.

(Have you looked at my avatar? Best picture I've ever taken!)

BlacknGold66 said...

SHIT! Lost my P2P feed! HELP!

Pensgirl said...

BNG, the Flyers just scored at the end of their PP.

eileenover said...

This SUCKS.

BlacknGold66 said...

Nevermind.... just got it back.

PHEW!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH FUCK!

Avery... I OWN YOU!

Jonny V said...

Pensgirl, I just noticed the other day that my comcast is FINALLY offering VS. in HD. Sweet baby carrots it looks good. And I read on the Post-Gazette that the farther the Pens go in the playoffs, the more chance they'll show games on Foxsports in HD goodness.

Flyer Hater, in all seriousness, you've been cracking me up the last few days when u post as a grizzled Flyers fan. Good Stuff.

Annie...You're darn tootin' it's a good day!

Ted Leonsis looks like Wayne Newton with a drinking problem.

And with the mentioning of Bugsy's dad, I have a 1977 Pens home white jersey, and want to get it customized with Greg Malone #12...Anyone know where I could get fuckin' LUPUL I HATE U...excuse me anyone know where I could get that done


fuckbunnies


Stupid Flyers

johnny said...

Craps fans = kicked in the nuts/ovaries

Pensgirl said...

I thought all day and most of the game that the Caps would pull this off, then when they kept getting chance after chance in the 3rd with nothing I started wondering.

Well, bring on the Rags.

Flyer Hater said...

Gotta love Devorski, don't call one tripping penalty but call the other. What happened to letting them "play"?

Joke.

Pens/Rangers

Pens in 6

Do it.

Jonny V said...

R.I.P. conspiracy theories

Flyer Hater said...

Well, Well, Well, I guess BUTTman and his lover Cindey Crysbitch won't get their match up for Ovechicken. I got new for you BUTTman, get ready for the Flyer to f*** all your plans, vengeance bitch.

I just hope the Rags but the PENSISES because when we beat those Frogs up north, you know BUTTman will just hand CRYSBY the series. Flyers are heart and soul! Penguins are whining divers.

Sooska said...

@ jonny v-the Xfiles say this: Sid this year. AO has to pay his dues this year.

FijiH2O said...

Clinton N - good for you! Somehow, Hilary ended up with the majority of the votes tonight!
maybe if Coffey and I had bit the bullet...

KJ - thanks for liking my name:D

eileenover said...

If any Cryers fans come on here to brag about the win, I'm going to rip their fucking balls off.

flyer hater, i think you're my favorite haha.

Sooska said...

Should Pens fans go to Filthy and riot?...or Washington?

Pensgirl said...

Jonny, I don't have HD cable quite yet (Comcast is seeing so much of my money I can't take it) but B'more has CBS and NBC in HD over the air already. I've seen HD hockey on NBC...but not the Pens, b/c when they were on NBC we always had shit weather that blocked the signal. I'll probably get HD cable for next season though. VS standard feed is utterly craptastic.

Beninati's on the verge of tears..."doing my best to keep a stiff upper lip here."

Dr. Turkleton said...

get ready to BOOOOOOOOOOO Jagr [gay]

the 1st non-call trip was worse than Poti's trip...[both WERE penalties, though]

@FH...let them play?...a PIM, is a PIM, is a PIM....

I was waiting for the Flying Nedved to appear...

@clinton n
someone with Clinton in their name votes for Gary = sweet

should've made him your campaign advisor

Flyer Hater said...

Dr. Turk, Paul Devorski has a track record of arbitrarily calling penalties that weren't called the entire game. The flyers were hooking and holding the entire thrid period when the Craps were skating circles around them but there wasn't one call made. Also, if you listen to the replay, Devorski didn't blow his whistle right after a Cap touched the puck.

Whatev, who cares really? We have a series to worry about now.

This is like an old Patrick Division Final match up.

BRING IT.

Eric K said...

that was the most painful game 7 ive ever watched...besides Ovechkin and the Carter-Lupul combo, both these teams blew massive cock tonight.

playin the Rags is probly the toughest matchup the Pens could have gotten in the 2nd round.

Flyers fans better enjoy the glory while they can...

Flyers will not win more than 1 game against the Habs. GUARANTEED. If they do, i will shave my playoff beard.

Hip said...

Brokenheartblog. And I'm all alone far from home. Tear.

I secretly love the Sid "Did he shoot that in his own net?" thing too, but Backis is the real deal. Job him too much and he'll make you pay. Watch out.

So the Rags... they make me a bit nervous, peaking at the right time it seems. It'll be doubly nice to halt this little train before it picks up any more steam.

OK, probably the worst analogy ever in c-blog history.

PS - Pensgirl, they keep the metro going until all games are over.

coffeytalk said...

tipblog:

Be careful with putting GR for Prez signs on the back of your car. I just got scolded about it by a cop.

PittHockey said...

so long unibrow, leonsis will treasure your tears

Ashley said...

Gary Roberts will make Sean Avery cry like a little girl who broke her designer high heels.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@coffeytalk

the cop didn't break your skull, did he? or was he a communist with a Rags pin on?

@hip

sorry :(

@FH

would've been old Patrick Div. if the Caps won as well !!!!!!!

I think Devo's a decent ref [based on all the other clowns out there]

the NYR might have looked better by facing the offensively challenged Devils, who when they score 2+ goals, it's a cause to celebrate.

PENgirl29 said...

you guys rule.
thank the lord you guys were pens fans.
i dont think i could stand seeing wwaod ?
its just not right.

marcetta said...

Pens-Rangers ‘08

10/23 – 1-0 W
11/8 – 2-4 L
11/17 – 3-4 OTL
12/18 – 0-4 L
1/14 – 4-1 W
3/18 - 2-5 L
3/30 - 3-1 W
3/31 - 1-2 OTL

3-3-2

The Rangers defense scares me a little because they've been pretty effective at solving the Pens most of the year, but this Pens team didn't really come together until the end of the year and the addition of a healthy Crosby skating alongside Hossa should make things a little more difficult for the Ranger's defense.

marcetta said...

and why would a cop scold someone for having a Roberts for prez sign on their car? I see fake election signs/stickers all the time? Dude needs to lighten up.

The Big K said...

Pens Home Record vs. Rags=
3-0-1

Pens Road Record vs. Rags=
0-4

Guess who has the home ice advantage!
And the Pens won't even need that.

To win it all, you gotta beat em all!

GO PENS GO PENS! BRING IT!

Pens in 5-6

Flyer Hater said...

Everyone is going to go on and on about how great the Rangers defense is and how they'll shut us down and how we'll barely be lucky enough to muster 10 shots on goal every game.
Blah, Blah, Blah.

Let me remind you of one really important truism about this series. The best defenseman for the Rangers is....number #3 in your programs and #1 in your hearts, Micheal F'ing Roszival. Now let's think,

Gonchar>Roszival
Letang>Roszival
Free Candy>Roszival
USS>Roszival

Sooska said...

Pens have to solve Lundqvist and stay out of the box.
Pens also should dress Max and maybe BGL up as Avery and let them go at MAF in practice -warm him up a little.
My other concern is Jags. He used to do 1000 squats a day to build his legs so he doesn't have old man legs. Say what you will he's a playoff, late game guy. When he decides to step it up he does and will and can.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@marcetta

& a new & improved [ankle] MAF....

I might be in the minority, but I think playing the Caps could have been just as tough...

they seemed to be a team of destiny with the way they rallied to get into the playoffs & battle back after 'learning' what playoff hockey was all about after being down 3-1...

any team that survives & gets into round 2 is tough to play, IMO...

[Hossa]

The Big K said...

Flyer Hater is fuckin hilarious.
Best post of the year.

Stoosh said...

Dr. Turk - I know I'm in the minority here, but I loved Cloverfield. It had it's share of plot holes and the acting could've been better, but I thought it was a unique take on a good idea. I was on the edge of my seat in the theater pretty much the whole time once the monster arrived and I'll be hoping for a sequel or some sort of follow-up to it.

I will say this...the one thing I didn't like...I found myself at times feeling a bit the same way I did on 9/11, and that's something I didn't want to feel like I was reliving anytime soon.

Mark said...

Sh*t. I drive a Ford Ranger. Should I go set it on fire?

Glad that you made it home from your confrontation with the po-lice, coffeytalk. How long does it take the effects of a taser to wear off?

Sooska said...

@FH *roszival* yep true enough and I heard Errey say the same on FSNP last week and then he laughed.

Stoosh said...

@ JONNY V -

About the customized jersey, are you local? If so, check out KoSports down in Canonsburg. When I played in college, they handled the numbers and crests on our jerseys and did an absolutely fantastic job. Very solid pro-look to the jerseys we got.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@the big K...

right on, brother!...to be the best, you've got to beat the best!


weren't there a couple Rangers douches that invaded cblog after some comments were made on a certain NY media guys blog????

when will they show up????

t-minus....

Flyer Hater > Roszival

Julia said...

So Charleroi to cal isn't that far..

=]

Stoosh said...

Watching the Caps after that series ended, I think I had a "Grinch Stole Christmas" moment or something. I actually felt bad, and that's something I NEVER thought I'd feel with a Caps team.

It could've been because the only two teams I dislike more than the Caps are the Flyers and Rangers, and I wanted Washington to win so 1) the Flyers would be out and 2) we wouldn't get the Rangers.

But to be completely honest, I do enjoy watching Ovechkin play, and I think the NHL is a better league with him in it.

Memo to Caps fans - Keep the ball rolling. Support your team like this in the regular season, not just in the playoffs.

@ Pensgirl -

My disdain for Beninati has been well-documented here before, mostly because he reminds me of one of those stereotypical nationally-syndicated DJ's that does a weekly Top 40 or something and deliberately ups the cheese factor in his voice.

But I feel bad for him. From what I've heard, he's a good guy and a diehard fan at heart, and I can imagine he's fallen in love with their team much the same way we've fallen in love with ours. To come as close as they did and not win would be tough.

Stoosh said...

@ Hip -

I'm not going to job the Caps after that one. And I like Backstrom as well...entertaining player.

I couldn't help but watch that game tonight and come away thinking that:

1. Ovechkin will use this as motivation next year in much the same way Crosby used last year's playoff experience as motivation, and...

2. the Pens and Caps are going to quickly emerge as the class of the Eastern Conference, and they'll stage some epic battles in the postseason down the road.

Flyers? Not so much. They need to get what they can out of this team this year because I think the cap will mandate some changes for them.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@stoosh

I guess I kind of liked it too...one of those that I could go back & watch again...did you watch the deleted scenes & alternative endings?....the whole apartment scene in the beginning I thought was overplayed a bit....you're spot on about the 9/11 thoughts, I had them as well...

seems like a couple 'spoilers' leaves it open for sequel possibilities...

maybe seeing it in a theater would have had more of a positive spin for me than watching on DVD....


Raise the Jolly-Roger!!! ['bout time!]

speaking of diehard fans in the booth...did anyone catch Chico Resch when the Devils were eliminated & the Rock was overrun by Rags fans....he was on the very edge of tears....Emrick had to calm him down a bit...could you imagine the Mellon being 50% full of [insert hated rival here] for a deciding game?
I remember being there when Gary Valk scored for the Leafs to eliminate the Pens...the most vivid part was watching a tsn/cbc guy dance a jig by the Leafs players entrance as the handshakes were going on...I wanted to puke.

Pensgirl said...

Marcetta, the only reason a cop would say anything is because he thought the sign was too big to safely be in a window while driving.

Hip, thanks. This is the first the Caps have made it to playoffs since I've been down here, so I had no point of reference (I pay zero attention to any other sports team down here except to root madly against the Ravens, and obviously there's no metro implication with them).

Stoosh, living down here and getting the Caps broadcasts all year I can tell you Beninati and Laughlin are actually pretty good in terms of what they say. They'll tell you when the Caps get away with a call, for example. But their voices make me want to stab myself with something just to distract from the pain of hearing them.

coffeytalk said...

The sign was apparently "blocking my view" and it's illegal to have something that size on a back window and blahbittyblahblah....

I'm currently skimming through Pennsylvania Law...

randomnote: also on my car is a bumber sticker that reads: this vehicle is protected by CTU. (love me some jack bauer)

i think i need one that says: this vehicle is protected by gary roberts

Hip said...

Thanks stoosh :) Caps will definitely be a force next year, with the experience and pure desire to make things happen. I completely agree that the Caps and Pens are going to rumble for years to come. I should probably start taking prophylaxis Zantac now...

The Big K said...

The Rangers are a fine hockey team....

BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT.............

Rags top scorer. Jagr. 71 Points. Old.
Pens top scorer. Geno. 106. Jagr when he was young.

MAF=2 losses since return.

Pens= ZERO home losses since 2/13 vs. B's.

Roszival vs. Gonch
M. Staal vs.Legame
Tytuin vs. USS
Don't know many other Rags D.
Because they are no names.
Pens advantage in all those matchups.

PK is on fire.

ALL WORLD PP.


This will be a fun series.

And we are a better team.

Who can beat them 4 of 7 times?

Nobody.

But this will be a challenge.

The Pens will meet it with flying colors.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@coffeytalk

where's joshua when you need him?....what about those folks whose ENTIRE back window is 'painted'/tinted with something [usually is a truck, with an eagle or red,white & blue involved].

his name wasn't Officer Avery?

Hip said...

Pensgirl - let's me up for a game if the Pens are still going when I get back to Bootymore.

J.S. said...

the evil po-po might have been pissed that the sign was blocking sight lines. I got pulled over once for having something hanging in my window, and I imagine the election poster falls into that category.

With that being said, I still say fuck it. I still have my sign in my Jeep.

The Seeker said...

No one in Philthydelphia will have to worry about rioting....the entire shithole is already burned, gutted, and trashed.

coffeytalk said...

I wouldn't call him an evil po-po.

The cop in question was actually my father. He just gave me a tsk tsk so that I don't get pulled over and get fined.

I am promptly printing out more GR signs to stick in his yard while he's at work tonight.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@j.s.

Only in a Jeep™

what model?

'07 Liberty here...sporting a Penguins wheelcover to boot...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

this west coast Game 7 is living up to the east coast one...

@seeker...

did you see my Crosby penalty stats from yesterday????

hey, you're a techie [jk]....what's the easiest way to convert .avi to be able to burn to disk?
I have the Winter Classic in .avi in HD...looks GREAT on the computer flatscreen, but would like to see it on the REAL tv.....

The Seeker said...

I kind of thought the Cryer tying regulation goal was bogus since there's no way that guy didn't know that deliberately pushing that Crap would cause goalie interference.

The Big K said...

QUESTION:
I have a photoshop ready!

How do I send a 'jpeg'?

I must know now.

The Seeker said...

@ Dr Turk

Yeah...thanks for the stats!

Burning AVI to DVD will require a program to convert the AVI.

Here's a tutorial

And, you can download the program you'll need free from here: DVD Santa

That program will be in a ZIP file with a couple extra documents you can ignore in there. Just unzip the installation file and do it.

The Seeker said...

@ the big k


Just attach the JPG to an email and send it to:

thepensblog@gmail.com

The Seeker said...

@ Dr Turk

I htought that link would allow you to download the program directly but it takes you to the page instead.

Click it and when the page loads, scroll down to the third set of program links...it's the thrid one down on the left: dvd santa 4.5

Pensgirl said...

Coffeytalk, do you have a CTU ring for your cell? Also, way to pay your dad back. He was probably right, but that's all the more reason to pepper his yard with signs!

Hip, you bet.

Damn, what the hell happened to the Flames?

CC_5052 said...

4-2 sharks

cujo in now

5-2 sharks.

so two of the norris candidates are out.

just saying.

pensgirl-

looks like i just got a new ringtone! Thanks!

The Big K said...

Flames were up 2-1 15 minutes ago.
Now, they are down 5-2. WTF?

Thanks Seeker for the help.

I sent it.

Hope Staff got it?

The Seeker said...

Seth at Empty Netter seems ot agree with my assessment of the Flyers tying goal:

10:13: Apparently it's now legal to bobsled an opposing player into his own goaltender and score a goal. Patrick Thoresen throws Shaone Morrisonn into Huet knocking him totally out of the crease. Sami Kapanen scoops up the loose puck and throws it into an empty cage. We're not immediately aware of any rule that prohibits knocking an opposing player into his own goaltender, but something about that goal doesn't rub us right.

7:02: Simpson interviews Flyers captain Jason Smith on the bench. Smith sheephishly says, "If the refs didn't think it was a goal, it wouldn't be a goal."

Pensgirl said...

No prob Coff. That ringtone is money.

The Big K said...

Game on Friday I hear.
NYrangers.com says so, anyways.

Though not official yet.

I hope to high Hell the game isn't Friday.

I have AAU baseball on Friday.

Pleasssseeee not Friday!

LargeFarva said...

@coffeytalk

3 points for the obscure "League Of Their Own" reference.

"Anyone ever tell you you look like a penis with that hat on?"

coffeytalk said...

wow. someone finally caught on to that.

thanks farva.

CC_5052 said...

i believe the pens-rags game is saturday

CC_5052 said...

oh yea, its now 5-3 sharks

sorry for the double post

eileenover said...

Pens/Rags is Friday.

eileenover said...

Game 2 is on Sunday. NBC gets their wish. I guess that means we have to listen to Emrick's obnoxiously annoying voice the whole game. Joy.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@seeker

Thanks for the info!!!..will try it after this post...
had to go watch Hell's Kitchen™ [NOT the Joey Mullen Story] with the wife before she dozed off..

Chef Ramsay is insane!

@the big K

Vs. was showing in game promotions for the MTL series to start on Thu. the PIT series to start on Fri.

CC_5052 said...

friday? wow. i wonder what i was reading

sorry guys, i guess i am having an off nice

Steve In Denver said...

Solve Lundquist? I say let Malkin blow holes in him with black rubber death discs.

I don't see the elder Pens beating the new and improved Pens. At all. Period. Bitch.

@Annie - And the other announcer from the Pens Blues '81 was Jiggs McDonald.
Wooooooooooo - Jiggs.

flyer hater is on acid.

Jonny V said...

Stoosh, thanks for the tip, I'll run it down there and see what they have to say. A Greg Malone jersey pays homage.

coffey, shame to hear about the cop/dad Roberts sign situation. I've been pulled over because my reindeer Randolph chills on my dash. A cop told me he's an obstruction, so I told the cop he helps with navigational skills. No go on that one. I still sneak him up there when he's bored.

Pensgirl, at least u get the Pens in HD this sunday.

coffeytalk said...

tailgateblog this friday? not sure if i will have tickets to the game but I could always tailgate.

Jonny V said...

I'm down, but I probably wouldn't make it down until about 6:30 cause of work.

Joshua said...

What in the hell was Huet doing on that god-damned goal? He was looking over his left shoulder like a total idiot. If he had tracked that puck he might have stopped that shot.

Now I am going to have to mute my fucking television every time the Rangers score a goal in MSG. I can't stand that goal song.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Never Forget.

NY Rangers douche.

John Dellapina.

The Blueshirts Blog.

New York Daily News.


We're BAAAACCKKKKK !!!!!!!

Dr. Turkleton said...

@joshua

He looked like he lost sight of the rebound on the point shot from Timonnen....that looked like the OLD MAF used to frequently give up....


The guys who clean the crease during stoppages have to get under Lundqvists skin...wasn't he the one bitching at the NYI girls who cleaned the ice to 'don't touch me!'?

Fleury29 said...

BGL needs to douche Avery as soon as Asslick McWavyArms is on the ice. Set the tone.

Right off the bat, just drop the gloves and go to town on his ass.

Look for the nasty, dirty, "gold" Pens hat and you've officially seen the only pic of BNG66 on the web... Job as needed.

sh0ez said...

I will most definitely be handing out more flyers around campus tomorrow just for the hell of it. This can get big and we all know it!

BlacknGold66 said...

That schedule BLOWS for me. No Vs. except on the computer. NBC game won't be on cuz of the Indians. Then CI will promise us the game only to black it out.

I swear to Gary if Sunday's game isn't on tv in Northeast Ohio then I'll just start murdering people.

Mark my word.

Chad said...

@Cody,

I'm right there with ya. Mine has to go a bit farther than yours. as I am in Spanish Springs.

Wish I could rock the WWGRD t-shirt on Friday, but the boss might be a bit upset. Hopefully I will have the bracelet by then, but not holding my breath.

@Dr. Turk,
Dang, a Tuesday game? That sucks. I'll have to record that one. Got lucky in the first round and didn't miss one.

Go Pens!

wacker69669 said...

I Have Kasparaitis said...

My brother and cousin are going to the second game of the this series. Ihatethembothblog. I might get to go to Game Five or Seven, if we play them (you never know.)

Caps were doing some stupid stuff last night (penalty-wise). The refs could have called a few penalties but didn't. I was reading a blog complain about the last penalty and saying that the refs were deciding the game. Whatev. They are ovbiously not intelligent enough to believe anything happens because it's suppose to or that people are actually talented. I think they would've won this game if it wasn't for stupid penalties. They were playing pretty solid.

Jagr is a beast in playoffs, how well is he going to do against us, though? Our defense is stronger and plus the "best defense is a good offense, and the best offense is a good defense, so we are going to call our defense the offense and our defense the offense." Sorry, I really like those NHL commercials .. they are funnier than their others.

I cannot hide this any longer, I love Roenick, not when he plays us, but I think he is one of my favorite non-Penguin players. Did anyone see him play? Wow. He is beyond the real deal. Sorry for my little Roenick happiness, I don't know why I have always liked him.

bng66: "I swear to Gary if Sunday's game isn't on tv in Northeast Ohio then I'll just start murdering people." Breath in, breath out, slow breaths. Goosefraba! I'm pretty sure I heard on NHL Live that you can e-mil them and they will help you see if you can watch it on tv or the internet. Just breath!

@Turk: Have you heard anything about FSN? I thought they were going to play this round, too. I guess I'm hoping because Mr. I-Used-To-Coach-This-Team and Going-Into-the-Stands-Man really annoy me. Enough that I can listen to Steiggy.

I can wait for the next round. I've been watching basically everything on NHLN and I'm tired of vintage games ... I want to see the new ones!

In the Penguins Organization I Trust!
