GameDay (3.1) -- Flyers @ Penguins




GAME ONE



We all know what it's about. Let's move on.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

ROCKYGATE

[ PittsburghHockey.Net ] came up with the pic of the Rocky statue drapped with Bing.


Well done, sir.

Not to be outdone, Flyers fans conjured their own plot,
draping a jersey over the Art Rooney statue on the North Shore.

[ The Orange Crush ]

[IMG_2017.jpg]
But the joke is on the Flyers.
This essentially guarantees that they will not win a game at home next January.


Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh

Whistler said...

As we prepare for the upcoming game, let us pray..

Our Roberts, who art in Pittsburgh, Gary be thy name.
The Playoffs come, The cup be won,
to Pittsburgh in the Arena called Mellon.

Give us this day our daily Pensblog
and forgive us our reporters as we job those who job against us
And lead us not into Philly, But deliver us from the whiners,
For thine is the Crosby, and the Malkin, and the Fleury for ever and ever.

AMEN!

Now, LET'S GO PENS!!!!

LETS GO PENS!!!!!!!!

GO PENS!!!

Hip said...

@chris l - that's awesome.

I bought a USS Hal Gill shirt today and am wearing it with some serious pride right now.

Annie said...

Since I didn't get to post this until the end of the last cblog, here it is again.

As it's the start of a new series, the time has come for the Henry V "Lord Stanley's Game" speech. Let's imagine Sidney calling together his brothers in arms for the next battle:

"This game is called the game of Lord Stanley:
He that outlives this day, and wins the Cup,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Evgeni.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly in the Playoffs greet his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is the Final Game:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had in Stanley’s game.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Gary the king, Crosby and Malkin,
Fleury and Ruutu, Sykora and Laraque,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Penguins Dynasty shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of Penguins;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall bolster his condition:
And everyone not in Pittsburgh tonight
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold themselves in shame whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Lord Stanley’s day"

Gary Bless Us.

GO PENS!!!

Sooska said...

The Malkin shirt has been warmed up much of the day. It is ready. It is ON.

The game day post is what this series hopes to be: Short and to the point.

GO PENS!

demondg1 said...

Rocky statue, well played.

I laughed my ass off from the Art Rooney thing. Who cares? They're attacking the wrong fan base there. The joke truly is on them.

Let's go Pens!

Sooska said...

@ annie- if you didn't see it: I thanketh thee. GodGary's blood we must beat these foul, wretched, loathesome knaves.

JYo said...

Another repeat from last post, but just in case anyone missed it:

There will be a special on Sid at 7 on VS.

Hip said...

I was hoping to catch the game tonight with a few cbloggers but some unforeseen circumstances arose. But at least I can watch the game. And given my recent issues, I think we can all agree I should take what I can get at this point!!

I'm off to babysitblog.

See yinz after the game.

Go Pens.

LET'S GO PENS!!!

aunt penny said...

@jyo..THANKS for the sid special heads up. SO is resetting tivo now.

May Gary bless you

Sooska said...

I just saw an interview on Sports Beat that Potash did with Dupuis regarding Timonen's injury. Pascal was trying unsuccessfully to supress a smile. He looked positively gleeful. me=stunned

JYo said...

Glad to help Penny. May Gary bless you as well.

Joose said...

I feel like I've been waiting 10 years for this game to begin!

I'm getting antsy over here.

RUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!

PittHockey said...

anyone have a video stream link?

otherwise I'm with the radio crew

Jonathan said...

I think someone on Sportsbeat reads the Pensblog. They had the Pens out Rocky statue and We'll kick your arse!

LET'S GO PENS!!!

Sooska said...

OMGary! Stan Savran just showed a video they did at FSNP to We'll Kick Your Arse You Flyers Scum! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Beautiful.

aunt penny said...

Gary Roberts can give Ross 5 reasons and they are all on his right hand. (he-he)

I'm tellin' ya...that half an hour makes all the diff. I didn't have to run over anyone to get home by puck drop.

So, we've had our prayer, Sooska's rockin her shirt...anyone seen Chris E yet?

jefe said...

go pens!

JYo said...

What is the obsession with chat? What does it offer that c-blog doesn't?

PittHockey said...

jyo: instantaneous satisfaction

JYo said...

you can get that here too

GwinTheEskimo said...

I've been waiting for this since 2000.
Ramble on.
Go Pens

PittHockey said...

had to mess around with some settings, but is anyone else using channelsurfing?

I'm assuming it's a windows media stream?

PittHockey said...

well anyway, the stream hates macs, so I'm on the radio.

Zac Wassink said...

gary bless us all

TheNWChica said...

The one from Richsportsline is working right now, but I can't connect to VS yet; which might be a blessing, because I might get to see the Ceeb instead of the cheeseheads from VS.

Antonette said...

WOOOOOOOO!

I've never been more ready for a game in my life.

Sooska said...

wow Versucks is already causing me nausea with the camera work.

Geno is FLYING

JYo said...

Malkin drops a little acid.

JYo said...

Hossa using D-men as pylons.

Sooska said...

Pens looking good. puck possession.

Sooska said...

me and you jyo.

JYo said...

SYKO!!!

TheNWChica said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Sooska said...

WE'LL EAT YOUR LUNCH YOU FLYERS SCUM!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

JYo said...

I'll take it sooska. We don't need more than us and the boys on the ice!

JYo said...

Chica is around too. Anyone else?

TheNWChica said...

Yes...I'm here! I have to be...all the other games I've been here watching on the compy; can't jinx it watching in the living room.

Sooska said...

true that jyo. hi chica! I thought pensgirl might be around too.

JYo said...

Biron looking tough to crack, eh?

TheNWChica said...

Hi Sooska! *waves*

Sooska said...

*waves back* whoa I have my game headache already. new record I think.

the boys look good.

Sooska said...

wow WTH?

JYo said...

Meh, that sux. Time to pick it up and take the lead back.

Sooska said...

shit. the versucks guys are slow on the uptake.

TheNWChica said...

BAH!

TheNWChica said...

I want them to let Geno just go nuts on someone...beat the living crap out of them.

JYo said...

OSU + Flyers = Umberger sucks.

Sooska said...

where was Syko going with that pass?

JYo said...

Hoss decks a D-man behind the net.

Sooska said...

I have the good fortune of having the radio synced with the TV so I can listen to Mike and 29. Such a pleasure to hear some good analysis.

dalmavs41413338 said...

1. Was that jobber from Philly really wearing a Mark Recchi jersey?

2. Blow the fucking whistle when there's a penalty. I've seen 3 not called so far.

Sooska said...

Geno and Hoss seem particulary psyched tonight.

TheNWChica said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK!

Sooska said...

SHIT umburglar. I HATE THAT GUY

JYo said...

D needs to pick it up!

Sooska said...

The Pens sure bumblefucked that away. not good. The Flyers settled down and the Pens did not.

Pensgirl said...

Showing the fucking Flyer fans celebrating might actually be worse than the goal. We can get the lead back, but I can't get the time they took to show those Orange Fucktards back, nor can my eyes undo having being seared by that hideous color.

TheNWChica said...

Not sure if you're watching the Ceeb, but they said that TK is road roomies with Gronk.

randomfactblog

JYo said...

I feel like the Pens are mostly dominating and basically being lulled to sleep then they aren't playing with any urgency on D. This could be a 7-6 game.

SID!!!

Pensgirl said...

HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

TheNWChica said...

BING!!!!!

Sooska said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO STOP THE PRESS

DIVE CAPTAIN DIVE

Pensgirl said...

Who guaranteed the Sid goal tonight? Was that Hip?

Sooska said...

Thank you Biron. we'll take that puck and raise you another.

JYo said...

Great poke check MAF.

Sooska said...

this game style favors the Pens only if the D buckles down.

Sooska said...

wow breathless.

Matt in N.C. said...

ROLLERCOASTERBLOG.....

Excuse me. I have to go buy some Dockers now.

JYo said...

Completely agree pensgirl. WTF is up with VS giving away a trip to one of those douchenozzles for game 2??? Are they going to take a Pens fan to Philthy to watch us complete the sweep in game 4?

JYo said...

Orpik give Umberger some free candy!

TheNWChica said...

@jyo: but what Pens fan really wants to go to Filthy?

Sooska said...

get the sweeper out Gary

JYo said...

The D needs to keep the crease clean. The Cryers want to play rugby, not hockey. Its the only way they can score.

Carroll said...

those scrambles in front of MAF are getting scary!

JYo said...

Great point chica. Especially since they will prolly get assaulted after we knock them out of the playoffs.

Sooska said...

They know a Pens fan would be maimed or killed down there.

D has to help Fleury in those scrums. shit guys

EmmBee said...

HELP! I just lost both feeds!! Lost it after they showed the Flyerfans. I didn't get to see Sid's goal - I'll assume it was awesome. Anybody else having Gore issues?

shitblog.

TheNWChica said...

They need to calm the fuck down...they looked like this in a game or two against the Rags too in the first period.

Pensgirl said...

I only got home at puck drop - THEY'RE GIVING AWAY A TRIP? I'm shocked that the Pens let them have any tickets to do that.

I'd sooner accept free candy than go to a game in Philly. I'm afraid that it would fuck with my DNA and make me start to devolve on the spot.

Sooska said...

12-6 Flyers in shots and quality close to the crease. need to tighten it up

Matt in N.C. said...

Doobie doobie dooo....

Sooska said...

shit boys eye hand coordination. Hossa is so strong! wow the Flyers are just swarming.

Pensgirl said...

Emmbee: Here you'll find a real-time game tracker and links to listen to Mike & Phil (you can also get the radio including the post-game show on wxdx.com)

Pensgirl said...

WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

JYo said...

Geno gets us the lead for the 1st intermission!!!

Matt in N.C. said...

GENO=GOAL!

TheNWChica said...

GENO!!!!!

Pensgirl said...

My momma loves two things:

Geno Malkin

LATE GOALS

My momma is sooooo happy right now. Right?

Matt in N.C. said...

Malkin is what Kovalev could have been if he had his head on straight.
What a laser....

EmmBee said...

Thanks Pensgirl. I was hyperventilating!

Annie said...

71 FUCKIN BURIES IT!

Joe even said!

Sooska said...

WOOO HATCHER GOT SMOKED LIKE A SALMON. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA>>>GENO IS LOVIN IT.

My goal comment got eaten by blogger error bX-n3zkj6

I EFFIN LOVE LATE GOALS

TheNWChica said...

OMG I feel slightly nauseated...roller coaster! But now I'm craving a corn dog too. lol

SK said...

What's that again? Shut down Crosby? Good idea.

Matt in N.C. said...

Wish I could make Gore sync up with the VS. These jobbers are makin' me ill....

Carroll said...

I think I need some Pepto!

Geno=Goal!!!

JYo said...

pensgirl, the announcers on VS said one of those jobbers in that bar they keep showing will get a trip to game 2 in the burgh. I was just wondering if they are going to show blatant favoritism toward Philly or if they will also feature a burgh bar during game 3 and give a trip to game 4. Whatev.

Matt in N.C. said...

@sooska

WOOO HATCHER GOT SMOKED LIKE A SALMON.

Almost spit out the long cut on that one.

The Big K said...

Make this a fucking blowout now. Bury them.

JYo said...

Man, Biron looks like he could steal the game, eh? He is playing out of his mind!!!

The Big K said...

On Flyers.com forums:
They are already whining.
Do they realize they could have had 4 penalties?

TheNWChica said...

If you're watching on the Gore and VS is getting to you, the feed from Richsportline with the Ceeb is nice and clear and stable so far.

Oh my...Cherry's coat is Pepto pink with what appears to be black palm trees outlined with white.

They showed Max down in the tunnel in dress clothes.

Juniper T Castle said...

Anyone know what happened to the VS feed? I totally missed The Kid's goal.

Carroll said...

chica - aren't you impressed at how his tie matches the light pink flowers in the jacket. That man can co-ordinate, to bad he still looks like crap.

JYo said...

On TV or internet juniper? I have no trouble with the TV feed so far.

TheNWChica said...

Oh my yes; it's lovely. lol I would love love love to talk to his tailor; see just what he says when he goes in to order his suits each season. *laughs*

Joose said...

This crap is intense!

thegreenseas said...

I CANNOT stand the Flyers' "no-talent required-clusterf*ck-scrum" style of play. Don't give up rebounds..just SHUT THEM DOWN!

TheNWChica said...

Awwww.....the girl in me just had a little squee. Bugsy just told the stiff on the Ceeb that they all love each other out there.

And babyWayne when they won their first cup.

wibblelikeagirlblog

Juniper T Castle said...

@ jyo.
On the interwebs. I've depended on it for so long and now it's just...gone.

Hip said...

Wow - what a first period.

All I could think of at the end was "im on ur rinkz... scoring big goal."

GENOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Btw- not me that predicted the Sid goal Pensgirl, but shit, fucktard might be my new favorite word.

TheNWChica said...

Hey Hip...maybe we should put together a dictionaryblog of new and fabulous terms here on c-blog like douchnozzle and fucktard.

Sooska said...

GAWDGARY chica. I was reading about Cherry's jacket and I thought you wrote Max was in a dress. I do that sometimes. hee

JYo said...

Malkin must have received a fresh batch of acid before tonight's game.

Sooska said...

@ chica -you may add my copyrighted "bumblefuck" to the cblog dictionary.

TheNWChica said...

Bwa ha ha ha! Actually though Sooska, Max is about the only one who WOULD be willing to slip a dress on, even as a joke.

TheNWChica said...

Oh...thank you Sooksa. Maybe we can add an all hands to the Staff like you did with the geographyblog.

*gets out her Excel spreadsheet*

Sooska said...

Hatcher is slow, man.

Sooska said...

BGL with Roberts and Geno. holy shit am I pregnant?

JYo said...

FREE CANDY!!!

Carroll said...

FREE CANDY!!!

Pensgirl said...

I can't take credit for inventing fucktard - I've seen it around places - but it's one of my favorites too. :)

Hm, I wonder who it was that predicted the Bing goal.

OK, Beninati calling the USS Hal Gill the "antidote to Jaromir Jagr" = SWEEEET. I'll give him credit where it's due.

Sooska said...

PKblog

JYo said...

What is that crap? Thats no penalty.

Sooska said...

USS HAL GILL

JYo said...

SHGblog!!!

Pensgirl said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Carroll said...

GENO - GOAL!!!!

Matt in N.C. said...

EAT IT BITCHES!

GENO=GOAL

Sooska said...

FUCK THAT GENO!!!!!!!!
THAT is a penalty SHOT

Pensgirl said...

Who backchecked on that play? I couldn't make out who that was.

Assist to Mike Richards - thanks for dawdling over him after you hit him, joke.

H.C. Prick said...

I had trouble reaching the keyboard due to my SHORTHAND!!!!

JYo said...

Exactly Sooska! I've seen 66 do that to the dominator before. Great move!!!

Sooska said...

4o4blog then PPblog

SK said...

That was just beautiful!

Sooska said...

someone in the crease buries Letangs pass

Ryan said...

That Malking goal was flat out one of the coolest things I have ever seen. As a Sabres fan I've seen Thomas Vanek pull off the breakaway slap shot (once in the SO last year against Montreal, once against the Isles this year on opening night), but that was the best and most poignant one I've ever seen.

Pensgirl said...

Versus needs to learn that it's running a clinic on how NOT to use graphics in a hockey game. They covered the whole damn play.

Sooska said...

bumblefuckblog to puttinontheRitzblog

cant keep up

Annie said...

I think it's safe to say that Geno's the type of player who makes hockey look like an art form - pretty much everything he does out there is beautiful.

Sooska said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Sooska said...

the crowd cant keep up either.Mike just said the Pens are making life miserable for the Flyers right now.

Pensgirl said...

Jyo, that was a total 66 move. Couldn't you just feel the same attitude eminating out of Geno, like "You know I'm gonna score, now I'm just going to toy with you as I figure out how I feel like doing it."

That was my favorite thing about Mario.

Sooska said...

so Geno goes from worst to first on thepenaltyshotblog. The boy learns fast. WOOO

JYo said...

Absolutely pensgirl. He reminds me more and more of 66 all the time. Awesome!!!

Sooska said...

I guess what we all should have said is *shrug* 71 buries it.

Pensgirl said...

Hey Ryan, thanks for the Malkin love. Just to reciprocate - Pat Lafontaine is my favorite player who never played for Pittsburgh.

TheNWChica said...

What the fuck was all that on VS? The Ceeb link is down and I had to restart my machine.

Sooska said...

Sid needs a date with the eqpt mgr

HOSSA

BannedwagonPen77 said...

are they really interviewing the Umberger's? Someone needs to get fired...

H.C. Prick said...

Does the chick from vs refuse to interview anybody in the stands under the age of infinity? First the grandjoke who told Crosby they wouldn't win the cup and now this.

Annie said...

Pensgirl - durn right.

Sooska said...

Mario is smilin like a butcher's dog.

SushiLvr said...

Brooks Orpik likes to pad Biron's stats

Matt in N.C. said...

What happened to the live shot from Philadelphia?

TheNWChica said...

I think I need to put the sounds on mute and go ring up Mike and 29er

Pensgirl said...

Hey everybody, Snoopyjode has a Mike Lange "It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh!" ringtone over at TSCS.

Sooska said...

channel 4 interviewed fans about the game tonight at a rally in Market Sq. They were ALL over 70 and one of them said the boys are vibrating.(I think she was trying to say vibrant) LMAO

JYo said...

Like I said, 66 did that to the Dominator before, when Dom was with the Sabers.

Sooska said...

That was a bad sequence of events.

Sooska said...

was that not a Xcheck leveled to Ruutu?

Carroll said...

I can't keep up with the line changes. 87/17/37

Sooska said...

Adam Hall is benched apparently.

JYo said...

Sooska, he was knocked down a few times when the puck wasn't even around, but the VS guys think RUUU is just trying to "draw a call". Whatev.

H.C. Prick said...

Forget the acid, Malkin drank a gallon of PCP before the game.

Sooska said...

There's your Geno hit chica!

Sooska said...

so close.....

Juniper T Castle said...

Yay Geno's shoulder hit.

TheNWChica said...

Thank you!

When my junior boys lay out nice big hits we say that really loud...*boom* Thank you! lol

Sooska said...

can anyone tell what is the crowd chanting?

Sooska said...

I am so glad Geno really hates the Flyers and their fans. I guess they could just rename the Flyerrs GENO HATE US

Sooska said...

What was that behind the net 3 stooges move?

EmmBee said...

Anyone else getting weird video/sound from versus on the Gore? Maybe they'll really make arsses out of themselves and not know that we are all listening!

Sooska said...

emmbee- what feed are you using?

EmmBee said...

channelsurfing

Sooska said...

wow that show of the hits was amazing.
