On their way to mailboxes on Tuesday.

Thank you all for your patience.

SOLD OUT.

We will contact you if you were on the cut-off.

We will be releasing a confirmation like [ this one ] in the next 24 hours.

That confirmation list is just an example from the first round of bands in October.
We have not done a confirmation list for these.


wooooooooooo

so that proves crosby isnt a diver

however, he is a goon. just look at those ridiculous numbers.

Raybin said...

Which is a better thing to hear?

"Turns out I'm not pregnant"

or

"WWGRDs are in"

You be the judge.

Flyer Hater said...

Dr. Turk,

I'm sure Gary BUTTman just got to the stats keepers. Everyone knows that the NHL will do anything to make their lovechild Cindy Crysbaby look good. He's still a whining, diving, p****. Mike Richards is da man, he never ever dives. He personifies a real hockey player and a real Flyer!

slush said...

Sweeet!

RobbieBrown44 said...

@ Pensblog Staff - Is it a bad thing if I don't see my zip code on your list?

I have my order confirm.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Wow, I missed so much. Commenting on Petr Jr., Nick cartoons, and people with similiar names to the Pens. Well, at least I'm here to witness the WWGRD wristbands coming.

Poor Preds. I had them winning in my pool because I am biased by the fact that I hate the Red Wings. (Hockeytown my ass ...) I need to see the Sharks win as well as a Caps loss. I am not lossing $4! If that stupid celebration didn't catch their captain off guard, I'm pretty sure that the Preds would be tied up right now. Oh well, can't live in what could have beens.

@Hip: Don't worry about what you said. I get overly offensive towards Pittsburgh, so much so that I almost physically fought a balloon man in TGIF's about my sports teams. (No joke.)

I love when people diss Sid because it proves how jealous they are of him (and possibly of his mustache if they are Charlie-esque.)

My school had a gun threat but I still had to go ... did anyone see Gary Roberts at my school? Anyways, in my social studies class I tried to convince everyone that by making a constitution that lets a foriegner be our president that it would be good for us. Too bad no one really knows who Gary Roberts is in my class ...

I like when teams get worn out when we play them, but I am seriously suffering from Pens withdrawal. Need to see Orpik smash someone into the boards ... need to see Bugsy crash the net ... need to see Scary Gary steal people's souls with one glance ... need to see Malkin get angry at someone ...

In the Penguins Organization I Trust!

Dr. Turkleton said...

@FH...

probably Bettman has the Gore rigged up so that Craps & Cryers fans see this when Crosby is involved...

2 Minutes for Diving
2 Minutes for Diving
5 Minutes for Diving

...just to add fuel to the fire to the old Patrick Division foes....

[Hossa: damn you, Bobby Gould & Todd Krygier!!!]

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I know I just posted bear with me ...

I just saw this on the Pens site involving the return of a Mr. Roberts and possible return for Eaton for at least another round

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/penguins/s_563457.html?source=rss&feed=8

Oh and Sepulveda is coming to my school on Wednesday ... I already have his autograph, why won't my Penguins save me from my school?

Oh, and I can't stop laughing about:

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: Gary Roberts.

Flyer Hater said...

Here's a portion of Wolf Blitzer's wikipedia page.

Early Life:

Wolf Blitzer, who has the same first name as his maternal grandfather,[1] grew up in Gary Robertsville, the son of Jewish refugees from Pensblog Charlie's Love Hut. Blitzer graduated from Gary Roberts High and received a B.A. degree in Gary Roberts biographing from the University at Buffalo in 1970. While there, he was a brother of Alpha Roberts Pi. In 1972, he received an M.A. degree in Roberts relations from the Gary Roberts University School of Advanced International Studies.

Ashley said...

It has been confirmed: TSN reads The Pensblog. Awesome.

Raybin said...

Hilarity, flyer hater!

They are quick on the draw over there. They changed that back already.

Wikifascists. No sense of humor!

Pensblog Staff said...

The confirmation list was for the last round of wristbands.

We will release a list in the next 24 hours

calvin said...

I heard these WWGRDs add 25 lbs of muscle

wilsmith said...

How can anyone take John Forslund serious after seeing his face/hair/glasses combo in the pre-game?

Flyer Hater said...

wilsmith, Forslund is one of the best VS. PXP guys for hockey. IMO he's much better than Emrick and especially Joe "man-power advantage" Benianti.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Ashley: Which episode is it? Is it the 21st or what?

Sportstunner said...

I didn't see my name on the conformation, I better by this evening.

Flyer Hater said...

Carey Price is running PatrickRoyblog, the Bruins won't score tonight.

KJ said...

someone rang our bell today and asked if i was interesting in knowing about our lord. i told them i know all about gary roberts and shut the door. pretty soon all i'll have to do is show them my wristband and be done with it

Dr. Turkleton said...

@FH....

you're forgetting....

Price = gives up 4 goals in each 3rd period the last 2 games....

if the B's continue this pressure...the Price is WRONG, bitch!

Ashley said...

kasparaitis - it was today's episode (21st), with Pinball Clemons and that guy who was a UFC ref.

Flyer Hater said...

Dr. Turk, I can't believe I forgot but this game has reminded me that,

Glen Murray=Joke

What a wasted talent.

Raybin said...

Price has dropped the brown acid tonight it seems.

Am I the only one getting tired of the trend of booing the opposing team's star player every single damn time he touches the puck? Ovechkin in Philly, Chara tonight in Montreal, Sid every night everywhere he goes.

Have I just somehow missed this all these years? Or is this as recent as it seems?

cdubbs29 said...

Sportstunner...thats not the real list. thats one from the last time the bracelets were sold

KJ said...

c'mon raybin those flys fans boo absolutely everything, are you really shocked?

Flyer Hater said...

Well the Craps are done, down 2-0 to the Cryers in the 2nd period.

I don't think Mel Gibson's character from Ransom could have found Alexander Ovechjoke this series.

Dr. Turkleton said...

FH...

good ol' Muzz...ain't it about time he hangs 'em up???

nice couple of cuties behind Claude 'the Bod' Julien.

wife was watching the MTL-BOS game with me & I flipped to the WSH-PHI on CI w/ the Craps ambiguously gay announce-duo...she just got up, didn't say a word...& left the room...now there is a pack of wild dogs outside my patio door....

2-0 Cryers

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Ashley: Thanks! I'm going to watch it now!

@raybin: I don't think the booing was a big issue ... a bunch of fans, here's a shocker, booed Sid and we still have people that boo Jagr (blah), but I don't think it was as annoying as it has gotten in playoffs. It hasn't annoyed me much until recently because by now I have watched a lot of games including a lot of them where one player was booed. Philly booing Ovie, I wouldn't put it past them and I'm watching the Habs/Bruins game right now, and it is annoying.

Flyer Hater said...

Well, bring on the Rangers.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Chara's jock he just left on the ice looks like that slingshot apparatus they use at the Mellon for Human Bowling.....

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

they're not BOOOOOOing...

they're RUUUUUing !!!!!!!

karri said...

The Seeker - Got the trials of the Ripper and Copier.

:)

Awesome!

What games do you need???

Flyer Hater said...

Well one series is definitely over, Habs up 3-0 on Boston late in the 2nd. HOWEVA, the Craps have come back and the score is now 2-1 late in the 2nd. It's a shame Versus can't switch games.

lis said...

you mean 2-2!

Flyer Hater said...

lis, wooooo

If anyone wants to watch the Craps/Flyers game....

Me=clutch

Flyer Hater said...

Ovechjoke shows up and scores on a breakaway to put the Craps up 3-2 with 13 minutes left in the third.

PittHockey said...

6 minutes left...

c'mon Bruins.


ugh.

Flyer Hater said...

Flyer fans are on suicide watch.

2000 all over again, LOL!

chris e said...

Flyers = stunned

lis said...

i love it...typical philadelphia team!

Brett said...

Flyers = Stunned

Me = Overjoyed

Ovechkin = Scary man

Dr. Turkleton said...

simple math now:

Craps Win --> Pens v. Craps
Craps Lose --> Pens v. Rags

2 Game 7's tomorrow....

another night of Must See TV

@FH
I guess the Price WAS Right tonight...

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Don't have the brass ones to finish off a team ... typical Flyers. They know I picked them to beat the Caps and are trying to mess with me. Montreal on the other hand, good job. Streit and Kovy = Clutch!

KJ said...

didn't think it would happen, but very glad it did, now for their game 7 to go into multiple OT. also i'd rather play the caps simply cause it would mean the flys would be ousted, plus price & hank could battle it out in the other series.

The Seeker said...

@ karri

I think I need 1 and 4, but let me send you an email to confirm that first....I'm on a different computer right now.

I'll also send you serial keys to make those trials permanent ASAP.

Pensgirl said...

KJ, your story made my day.

Raybin, I think you're right that the constant booing is a more recent development. I don't remember Mario getting booed the same way, or Jaro when we still had him. And yes, it's irritating as hell. It's not like it does anything, and anybody who says "it's to throw them off their game" has rocks for brains. Yeah, joke, the best hockey players in the world are going to trip over the blue line because you made a random noise in their direction. That's how they got to the top, by being affected by every batshit person who squawks at them. *eyeroll*

Me, I prefer to actually watch the fucking game.

Flyer Hater said...

Dr. Turk, you wouldn't believe the Carey Price lovefest that is already underway on TSN.

Barf.

The Craps are like a very poor man's version of us. We just are better than them at every single aspect of the game. I couldn't see a series between us and them going further than 5 games.

And if nothing else, remember...

WOOOOOOOOOO

Best.

Photoshop.

Ever.

karri said...

@ the seeker

ok - thanks.

:)

Dr. Turkleton said...

has anyone heard/read when the Round 2 schedule is coming out?...will they give tomorrows Game 7 winners a break & not start their series until Thurs. or Fri.?...

Stanley P. Kachowski said...

Staff: Sweet Wicker-ish Dining Room Chairs. I'm surprised they didn't atomize in the presence of that much WWGRDness.

Jawsh said...

I'm not sure if you guys have seen this or not but it made my day...

Stoosh said...

I Have Kasparaitis -

There are few things better than watching the reactions of Flyers fans as they realize a potential series-clinching win is vaporizing in front of their eyes, and that it all happened in the latter stages of the game. Talk about a team that can't seal the deal.

And if there's another goaltender in the league who I enjoy watching fold up like a tent more than Martin Biron, I'm not sure who it is. Someone needs to tell Marty that it's tough to play goal with both hands wrapped around your throat.

For one night - tomorrow night - I think I can be a Caps fan.

A Caps win and a Flames win will make my Tuesday night.

Have the Philly fans started connecting the dots and bitching about the Sid-Ovechkin 2nd round conspiracies yet?

Dr. Turkleton said...

@SPK

"I like Sweet Wicker-ish, espethially tha red, stringthy kindth"

-Bryan Murray

Stoosh said...

Committing to the Roberts = best $10 I've ever spent.

KJ said...

stoosh, its the flys, of course they're looking for any conspiracy theory they can make up. remember, its never that maybe no one showed up in the 3rd, their goalie is biron, or when the fans want them to fight, they vanish, but its eveyone else's fault.

but what i think is the best thing about that series is how so many flys fans bitch & moan about crosby's dives, but had so much respect for AO cause he never does anything like that! wonder what they're saying now

Raybin said...

AHAHAHAHAH!

Oh my God

From a Philly blog, posted during the second intermission

Keep in mind I swear I'm not making this up. One poster says he thinks Carter gets the game winner.

Then another assclown says:


Richards. Book it.

The legend will begin to grow tonight.


Referring to, of course, the Mike Richards who is a better all around center than Sidney Crosby. *cough*

Raybin said...

I still can't stop laughing when I think about that.

Man, you know Mike Richards totally would've beat Ryan Miller at the Winter Classic too.

The legend begins to grow.

What kind of shrooms do these people eat?

Dr. Turkleton said...

anybody else catch Scottie Upshall's diving penalty?....Sid is the MASTER of the head-snap [Tyler Wright was pretty good, too]...Upshall's looked straight out of Combat Zone Wrestling

wonder if this will be mentioned on any philly boards????

how bout a 5-OT game tomorrow????

Grant said...

tPB should take a gander and mail some into the Pens....

Could you imagine a photo of Crosby throwing his hands up after a goal and we catch a glimpse or shot of a WWGRD bracelet on him

Grant said...

PS... DEFINITELY wanna play the Caps over NYR

Hip said...

Wow. I'm pumped for my bracelet. Actually my cousin is pumped moreso - this is going to be her main prom accessory. I hope I didn't butcher that paypal shit.

Go Caps! Although I will shit myself over a Caps/Pens series. Aghhhhhhh.

Jonny V said...

I heart game 7's

Fleury29 said...

Pens vs Caps is Bettman's wet dream but dammit, I wouldn't mind seeing that either.

The Blizzard of Cros and Malkamania vs Alexander The Great I mean, c'mon... there would be some amazing goals scored in that one.

In addition, it would mean that the Flyers got bumped in the first round of the playoffs and, if I may, for the last time remind us all of what Grandmaster Stoosh said, lo those many moons ago:

The Flyers fans claiming that they have this division can go fuck themselves with the business end of a Civil War-era bayonet.

Well, obviously we know who took the division and almost the conference and the Flyers barely made the playoffs. Now it looks like they might be getting ready for an early exit.

Shit, even I can be a Caps fan if it means putting a mercy bullet in the Flyers forehead.

In the words of Kenny Melvin, "Good day to you sir... I said good day!"

The Big K said...

I'll fall over laughing if Philly loses tomorrow.
THAT will be a fun YouTube for me to make!

The Big K said...

@raybin

Another excellent post for you.

Flyers fans are the biggest homers in all of professional sports, no comparison.

EVERY LOSS is the refs fault,

and Cindy Crysby has NO HEART AT ALL!

They call themselves knowledgeable?

Blackngold66 said...

That Molinari article just fired me the hell up for some reason.

Gonch & Max sound determined.

Can't wait for round 2!!!!!!!!

Benjamin said...

WWGRD? whip the flyers at "their own game"... prolly, yeah.

but lets take time in this important year to reflect on who we are...

america..... fuck yeah!

GO PENS!

blackngold66 said...

so lick my ass and suck on my balls,

...Fuck Yeah!

Julia said...

Let me tell you, my whole dorm will know when my wrist bands arrive.

coffeytalk said...

randomtidbitblog:


So I just watched The Daily Show a moment ago and Obama was on via satellite from our glorious Pittsburgh. At the end of the interview, Stewart told Obama to go grab a sandwich at Primanti Bros. after the rally. Jon pronounced it wrong but says he goes there everytime he's in Pittsburgh.

teehee.

Blk&Gld said...

I'm waiting to see the whole team wearing a band in game 1
