GameDay ( WPXI )


11:00

We need anthem pics from your couches, if you feel so inclined.
Maybe a cotton candy picture.
Maybe a stunned pic?

We miss recaps, so we are trying to stay fresh.

BGL hosts [ OTR ].

Mistake City

Why is the RBK decal reversed? derrrrr

[ Stephanie ] sent in how goalie gloves look.

Adam typed that in the picture's caption on Monday.
You may find him in one of George Carlin's standup routines.
Because he is a joke.


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


Big-time newscast tonight.
With severe weather in the Pittsburgh area, it could be a high-scoring shootout.

PROBABLE STARTERS:
According to the message boards at Lets Go WPXI,
Darieth Chisolm and David Johnson are the starters for tonight.


David Johnson pays the bills.

Expect a big role from Mike LaPoint the weatherman tonight.


Can't afford any mistakes.

I would totally do Darieth Chisolm.

canaanregulatesblog said...

Laraque has a WWGRD bracelet on LOL

debrisslide said...

Dude, my couch is totally revved up for this broadcast. Expect a photo!

eileenover said...

David Johnson annoys the hell out of me. I'd be happy to send in an anthem picture.

dhudzin said...

Wow, BGL interviewing Lord Roberts. Epic.

Me = Stunned

Mike Georger said...

johnson's eyes look fucked up and he stole olberman's hair

Franklin Hockey League said...

HAHAHA, WOW. Georges has a WWGRD Bracelet too.. STUNNED.

The Big K said...

BGL wearing a WWGRD bracelet.
I really think that the whole team reads tPB.

Lapointe will need to bring it, yes.
And Chisolm will need to show me something.

Dan said...

chocolate ice

stokes said...

The Big K: Friend of Staff, DK, absolutely reads tPB in the locker room, so the team is aware of the inside jokes that go on here. Its pretty sweet.


Orpik actually got pissed before he understood the Free Candy joke.

The Big K said...

I too will be sending in an anthem picture.
This should be fun.

The Big K said...

@stokes

Dan Kroll is the dude.

Dan said...

what post started free candy?

gary roberts had sex with my mom

sh0ez said...

I will be sending in a picture, too!

stokes said...

The Big K: If you've ever met him, he is one cool dude. He went to KO and was two years behind me. While i didn't know him then, some of my current friends know him and i had the privilege of chilling with him during the playoff run. SUPER cool dude.

Pens1PSU said...

Yes. I want a WWGRD bracelet.

canaanregulatesblog said...

guess who is moving back to pittsburgh?!?


wooo!

canaan is heading west.

no more philly!

Sooska said...

@canaan- I am so jealous!

2questionsblog

>how/where did BGL get a WWGRD bracelet?

>@Staff - I know Ch 11 is the "favorite" here. They also produces news at 10 pm for FOX 53. I don't know if it's the same news crew but you might get to recap (read job) 2x each night. Is that something being considered?

eileenover said...

Congrats Canaan! Will you be back in time for QS&Lblog?

Kat said...

BGL is interviewing Gary. Must view.

canaanregulatesblog said...

eileen, im working on it.

i'll know by wednesday if i can scrump some QS&L deliciousness.

penstone410 said...

((totally just posted under my friend's name by accident.. me = JOKE))

i pissed myself while watching the WWGRD interview, too much too much.. the fact that laraque is wearing a bracelet, oh my gary!

ill send in a couch photo!

and yeah, anyone know how GL got a bracelet??

RaCHeLeYoS said...

the only way to have gotten a bracelet would be to order it from pensblog?

eileenover said...

Maybe Dan Kroll got him one?

John said...

that laraque roberts interview is hilarious

wilsmith said...

I would guess he ordered it, and staff is nice enough not to throw it out there.

or, someone in the locker room has them.

stokes said...

I'm with eileen. my money is on DK hooking him up.

wilsmith said...

also, that BGL clip should be enough for shero to resign him.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

how funny would it be if the entire pens team had bracelets?

HAHA

The Big K said...

WOOOOOOO CANAAN RETURNS!
Will you be back in time for Wingblog?

Chubs said...

@rachel-

I think at that point, this team/blog/fanbase would become something that people would write songs about. And tWWL makes Sports Century specials about. If they actually did anything that mattered anymore.

adam said...

Unreal. Gary is a legend. I would like to see tPB staff maybe ask Gary to write a piece for the website. Maybe another Q&A. He is obviously aware of the blog and seems to be pretty cool with it.

Dr. Pepper said...

How do I get the image by my name?

RaCHeLeYoS said...

dr. pepper - click on ur username when u posted and go to edit profile then there is a place to change ur picture.

stokes said...

While its great that Canaan will be returning to the Burgh, I'm just glad that he has reappeared on Cblog...

The Big K said...

Shittyknockoffofamericanidolwhichsucksanywayblog.

I'm pumped. 20 minutes to gametime.

Pensblog Staff said...

From what we can gather, we send a couple Dan Kroll's way back in November with the first batch.

But Josh, the host of the TSN show, has mentioned us a few times and has been good to us, so we sent a few his way in April.
Our guess is one was lying around, and they put it on BGL for the segment.

t-minus 17 minutes

ac

stokes said...

Staff is like the Gary Roberts of Blogging.

canaanregulatesblog said...

thanks, stokes!

i kinda chilled out on c-blogging during the playoffs. it was part superstition, part busy.

@Big K

Im gonna try and make it to wingblog. I have a specific need to finally meet the stoosh (and chug a beer with him) and the other cblog all-stars.

coffeytalk said...

canaan- do it.

Stoosh said...

As of 10:51 PM, it has been confirmed.

The Stooshes = officially committed to Wingblog.

slush said...

My husband gave BGL a WWGRD wristband during the autograph session at Dick's. Who knows if he kept that one or not. Kinda cool thinking he may have?? :)

Stoosh said...

@ Canaan -

I'd be happy to chug a beer with you, you dooshbag (remember that?).

Jasper said...

how hard was BGL trying not to laugh :D
bgl interviewing gary :D

Jason said...

@ stokes:

What year did you graduate from KO?

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Am I the only c-blogger in western PA not doing Wingblog? Wow, my life = lame. Damn you, parents!

eileenover said...

@slush

That's awesome. I bet that's the one he was wearing.


So who wants to buy me a drink at wingblog? Hopefully I can find someone to work for me or I might not be able to come.

Poor Joey Porter.

canaanregulatesblog said...

@stoosh

part of my life was ruined when arizonahotrock dropped the bomb on me that "stoosh" didn't rhyme with "douche." i felt hollow and alone. i've since recovered, but i, at times, relapse into saying your name wrong.

ho hum.

/47 days of saying your name correctly.

keep on keepin' on.

Stoosh said...

@ Sabrejets -

I'm half-Italian and I wasn't offended in the slightest by Johnny Miller's comments.

I was much, much more offended by Johnny Miller's incessant asskissing of Tiger Woods. I used to think John Madden was bad with Brett Favre.

And prior to listening to Miller, Joe Theismann used to be the king of the "well, back when I played" gimmick. But given how often Miller was identifying with every single thing Woods did, Miller obviously ripped that trophy out of Theismann's hands and beat him severely about the head and neck with it.

By the time that broadcast was over, I'm surprised Miller didn't just announce that Elin had nothing to do with Woods's child, and that Miller was actually the one who gave birth.

The Big K said...

@Kaspar

Provided my parents drive me there, I am going to Wingblog. It will be sick.

Stoosh said...

@ Eileen -

Hopefully I can find someone to work for me or I might not be able to come.

You could always just quit your job. haha

:)

Sabrejets said...

@stoosh

yah, I took the comment down because it was off topic and I don't much believe in being part of the pc police myself, however as someone who did watch the open, i just got really tired of listening to Miller. He has been lauded for his "outspokeness" as some sort of breath of fresh air. I wish he'd just shut up. He certainly wasn't the be all and end all of his era in golf either...

eileenover said...

@stoosh

Haha I'm getting very close to doing just that. I hate my job.

The Big K said...

George Carlin.
They knew the blog would be watching.

wilsmith said...

might be a late arrival, but I'm going.

wilsmith said...

eileen where do you work? we could make sure you have off.

Chewbacca said...

If you actually take the picture of the gold goalie glove, and imagine that one on Pechurski, and then have him extend his arm and turn his palm down, I can see where the "RBK" logo would turn upside down. It's not an optical illusion with the awesomeness of the gold glove, is it?!?!

eileenover said...

Oh good wilsmith! Will your friends be joining you?

coffeytalk said...

wingblog is the right choice. i am excited. it's c-blog's turn to tear apart the wings.

stokes said...

I know nothing about wingblog.....outofthelopblog.


yeah, canaan. i have missed your insight, wit, and internet savvy.

@ jason: '99.

i think there were many of us that thought that "Stoosh" rhymed with douche. What a mistake.

Stoosh said...

Someone mentioned it earlier today, but it bears repeating...

It's bad enough that George Carlin is no longer alive, but the fact that fucking Carlos Mencia, Dane Cook and Larry The Cable Guy are some of what we have left makes it even worse.

eileenover said...

@wilsmith

T.J. Maxx. The job itself is super easy and I love the people I work with. However, my one manager is a complete dumbass and has pretty much hated me since I started. Not to mention that most of the customers are incredibly rude.

slush said...

I am guessing wingblog is not kid friendly?

sh0ez said...

@stokes: 6PM. This Saturday. Robinson Quaker Steak and Lube. Wingblog for Cblog.

Lloyd said...

it can't be a commercial break without someone asking for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEcR-5x8xwI

stokes said...

whoa. what a huge misspelling.


It should read "outoftheloopblog."


good Gary....


Word Stoosh. those three guys are about as funny as a fart in church. combined.


Thanks Shoez. not sure what's going on for saturday, since i'm kinda late on this....

Lloyd said...

nooooooooooo....

i can't attend wingblog.
/going to World of Outlaws race at lernerville.


is it too much to ask for rain so i can go?

Stoosh said...

@ Eileen -

If it's any consolation, I hate your dumbass manager.

@ Stokes -

I'm more than fine if people want to continue to rhyme "Stoosh" with "douche". Actually, that's how most of my family pronounces it (yes, my family calls me "Stoosh")...all of my friends pronounce it the other way (rhymes with "push").

coffeytalk said...

Quaker steak is totally kid friendly. it is a family joint.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

gary is coming back?

Stoosh said...

Aaaaggggghhhhhhhhhh

Fedko

sh0ez said...

Fedkoisajokeblog.

eileenover said...

I enjoy Frank Caliendo myself. His Charles Barkley impression is hilarious.

canaanregulatesblog said...

wingblog is definitely kid friendly.

i'll keep my beer drinking to a minimum (although my wing consumption may be at a maximum).

Flyer Hater said...

Turn on the Fedko Joke-Zone, i'll be jobbing.

Stoosh said...

That Cedar Point commercial makes me sad, mostly because my cousins are there right now and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get there this year.

CedarPointwithdrawlblog.

wilsmith said...

yeah, I dont know if they're going. one of them sounded excited about it. they all ready the site, though they dont comment. I'm only in the city a few times a year, the last time being for that outdoor game in south park. so while I'm there, might as well see some cbloggers.

I'm sure if I go, they'll go. and I'm going. the only problem is the dve after party thingy starts at 6, I believe.

it sucks though and aside from meeting quasi-celebrities, there's no real reason to go.

oh ps, canaan, your avatar is SO OFFENSIVE

stokes said...

Stoosh, what is the story behind "Stoosh," since it seems like your alter-ego has nothing to do with Stoosh??


My neighbor's daughter's ex-husband went by Stoosh, but i always assumed it was spelled Stoush.


i'm a complete dipshit. i've been sitting here, bullshitting online and totally NOT watching WPXi news.

eileenover said...

I'm getting atomic wings. It's about damn time I got them anyway.

Stoosh said...

Actually, yes, I agree with Canaan. Outside of my obligatory beer that I need to chug with Canaan, I'll keep it to a minimum. I'll also make sure not to employ the language exemption I usually reserve for Flyers and Rangers games if the kids are there.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

lol eileen.... i've had the suicide ones. i know you have to sign a waiver for atomic. there's no way I will touch those before I board a plane in a few hours tho.

eileenover said...

@wilsmith

Don't even worry about getting there at 6. No problem at all.

Kat said...

Aw, I'm sad I don't live in PA or I'd totally be at Wingblog. I'll be there in spirit.

eileenover said...

Yeah I've had the suicide ones Rachele. I didn't even think they were hot

slush said...

Well, we have 3 small kids. (Ages 6, 3 and 1) We may do a drive by. I do not want to hinder anyones beer consumption! I wanna come, but no way we can find a sitter on short notice. Sitters hate 3 kid families.

eileenover said...

What's your first name flyer hater? I'm watching Fedko.

wilsmith said...

will they separate kiddies if someone drinks?

some restaurants are lame-o

RaCHeLeYoS said...

they weren't very hot at all... but they didn't have much taste either.

Stoosh said...

History of "Stoosh" -

Stoosh was a nickname that I kind of picked up in college.

I co-hosted a radio show in college, and a couple of my fraternity brothers had their own show as well - Howard Stern-ish type stuff, mostly. I'd always go and hang out in the studio when they did their show. During their show, they'd occassionally play some clips from some old DVE Morning Show discs.

Paulsen and Krenn used to do a skit on DVE called "Teamsters Today", and Paulsen would do a particular character named "Stoosh". Somehow, the name found its way to me and it stuck. I'm half-Polish and half-Italian, and since it's a nickname used in both cultures, I guess it fits.

It's taken on a life of its own among my college friends - some of whom I don't think know my real name to this day. When my wife and I were still dating, we went to Myrtle Beach in 2002 with a bunch of friends and one of them started calling us "The Stooshes". He said we reminded him of one of those elderly tourist couples you see at the beach, so we then became "Frank & Nancy Stoosh".

My whole family now refers to my wife and I as "The Stooshes".

sh0ez said...

I think me and the girl will be the only ones not drinking? Other than Big K if he comes, that is.

Flyer Hater said...

Eileen, you'll know...

slush said...

@wilsmith Nah, I just didnt want to rain on anyones parade bringing my monkeys with us.

penstone410 said...

im still not sure if i can get off work for wingblog.. im workin on it.. however, it wont be AS fun for me seeing as how im like sid the kid and not old enough to drink-- BOO

eileenover said...

@sh0ez

I won't be drinking, unless someone orders drinks for me.

sirimanni said...

gary takes 100 vitamins a day, that blows my mind. i thought the only one you needed was the flintstones. note to anyone wanting to try an atomic wing, the one time i tried to eat one it felt like my mouth caught fire upon touching my lips. however my friend cruised through 6 with the help of milk

Lloyd said...

ok... how many times did fedko say "uhhh" and "and and and" during that opening monologue?

wilsmith said...

yeah I wont be either. just don't.

eileenover said...

@slush

Feel free to bring the kids. I love kids.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

can you drink in the restaurant part?? i hope that doesn't sound like a stupid question. when i wasn't 21 one of my friends was and he always went to the bar by himself to get some alcohol...

stokes said...

Thanks, Stoosh.


I've played on hockey teams and worked at places that i swear, STILL, people have no idea i have a first name.


If i attend on Sat, i will totally be drinking.

wilsmith said...

oh no slush, that's not what I meant.

a lot of places separate crowds of agers and under agers if one of them drinks. is QSL one of them?

coffeytalk said...

nounderagedrinkingblog.

Lloyd said...

if anyone is going for atomic wings or such...

bring some honey.

penstone410 said...

@slush
i babysit a 3-kids family.. i hate these kids but they have a reputation for being monsters.. im sure i'd love yours though!!

coffeytalk said...

I doubt QS&L separates. I plan on drinking. I miss game day tailgates so this will help a bit.

sh0ez said...

Woo. I won't feel awkward then. Hah. I think I'm one of only a few people that I know that don't drink at all (and being over 21).

eileenover said...

You can drink in the restaurant area. My dad always has a beer or two.

coffeytalk said...

there is a new post. a minipost with a polldaddy, btdubs.

wilsmith said...

oh shoez, I'm with ya.

Dr. Pepper said...

@Stoosh

Great story. Just went to cedar point myself :) Too chicken to go on the best rides however...

stokes said...

coffeytalk= party pooper



HAHA

Flyer Hater said...

Fedko Jokezone, I'm on next.

DO IT

coffeytalk said...

oh stokes.

i was once that busted underage drinker. don't want anything to wrong for our younger c-bloggers.

penstone410 said...

NICE FEDKO JOKE!!!!!

coffeytalk said...

aaaah. i missed it flyerhater. i was trying to find the remote and FAAAILED.

WHAT HAPPENED?

slush said...

I caught it. Nice job FH!

Although, he needs to be jobbed to hell for claiming he started it all. What a joke.

stokes said...

oh coffey, you know those love for you and underagers all over the place. my bro got one too.

yes, another GR call. if only Fedko knew what a joke he is!

stokes said...

sorry, CT and Cblog. my english sucks.....i'm out like a boner in sweat pants.

penstone410 said...

yeah seriously, i cant believe fedko is taking credit WTF

joe121638 said...

So if Hossa wants to play for a contender, how many teams out there can give him more than 7.5 a year and contend for a cup. Detriot is going to have to resign some key parts of their team after next season. The Habs want everyone.

If he wants money he goes to a team that hasn't made that much of a threat to contend. If he wants to win he takes less, but event then some contenders still can't push what the Penguins can offer.

GottaHydrate said...

OMGary... Laraque is wearing a WWGRD bracelet... nice
