The dog days of summer continue.
Tough times.


[Blair]


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

If it seems like we're talking about the Lightning every day, it's because everyday they do something else that makes you wonder if these guys realize they are running an actual team and not playing NHL 08.

Today it was signing Vincent Lecavalier to a 11 year $85 million contract extension. [ TSN ]
The deal will go through the 2020 season, when Lecavalier is 40 years old.
Although by then, in the post robot invasion world when humans are slaves, it probably won't be that big of a deal.

Ladybloggersblog

In a big break up, your bound to lose something you hold near and dear. Like when splitting the record collection and they take the Police two-disc anthology, even though you know they've only listened to it three times top. The callous bastards.

In her split [ Wrap Around Curl ] lost the Vancouver Canucks. And honestly, she's probably better off, especially in the post Markus Naslund era. But now she's a UFA and looking for someone to sell her on a new team.



:: And over at [ I Mean, We Got Guys ] they're progressing in the Hottie Hockey Dreamy Team contest.

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

Game #20

[Breaking Point. PENS LOSE]

[<span class=[pit.<span class=
4-3 (OT)

The Pens set up shop, but the Pink Ranger steals the puck.

The Pink ranger morphs a pass to Roszival.
WTF 2-2.
It is never easy when a former Pen scores.
But Rozsival? Twice?
Unreal.
Game.

"Pittsburgh has a great team, great people, great organization. I had to compare the two teams, and there's a little better chance to win the Cup in Detroit. I had a great time with Sid and playing on the power play with Geno [Evgeni Malkin], but the team in Detroit is something special. I know it's a short term, but we never talked about a one-year [deal] with Pittsburgh. We just talked about a long-term deal. I totally believe Detroit has the kind of team that can win it again."

Staff = Always on their game. Unreal.

Raybin said...

Captain Murphy picture FTW!

Sabrejets said...

Raybin, you're the man. It's July and you're in mid-season 09 form.

I'm reading a book about the 92 Pens by Dave Molinari, but I'm not sure I can get through it. All it is is a bunch of game recaps, with post game interview comments. C-Blog staff could publish that.

I do remember when Buries It used the term "Garage League" - he got in some hot water for that one...

Raybin said...

Raybin, you're the man. It's July and you're in mid-season 09 form.

Heh. If complimenting the staff and getting exciting over a Sealab 2021 picture are solid achievements, just wait 'til I have some serious hockey to sink my teeth into. I might become a lethal weapon.

I do remember when Buries It used the term "Garage League" - he got in some hot water for that one...

Speaking truth to power always gets one in trouble. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!

The HZA said...

Thank you so much for the link kick, Pensblog! Breaking up is seriously rough business.

Sabrejets said...

Well, that's true too. But I've got nothing to add to the hockey conversation this time of year (if i ever do) but you seem to keep up on the minors and everything else.

Sabrejets said...

Speaking of the minors, we have the Dayton Bombers here, and they've announced they have a "top ten" venue,
The Nutter Center

They do have a nice place, don't get me wrong, but they can't fill it, and games are more fun at the War Memorial, in my opinion. Never been to the Wheeling Civic Center, would like to go...

Yes I do. Yeah, I remember getting in some Islanders shirts. I was like, lameeeee.

goodness, they really make up for not posting the recap late don't they?

jefe penguino said...

lacavlijoke? only 11 years?

i think next time around the pens need to lock up Sid the Kid til hes Sid the Senior.

Joose said...

What's for supper?

I'm hungry.

jefe penguino said...

@joose -i was just thinking that. and its only noon here. as much as i dont really like dominos. i did just see an ad for a gotham city pizza. hmmm..

KaylaJ said...

dinner? i'm still eating leftover breakfast

captain skip said...

So, did a troll show up at Wingblog?

TheNWChica said...

Okay...I can't read either of those two blogs because that one chick is a Spokane fan and the other is a Tri-Cities fan. I would have to punch both of those girls in the face. lol

I wonder if I started my own blog with my boys if Staff would add me to the sidebar...probably not. Oh well.

GO SILVERTIPS! Whoooooooooo!

jefe penguino said...

@nwchica -im sure staff would add your blog to the sidebar since they are in fact an equal opportun.. ahh nevermind.

Raybin said...

@sabrejets

Keep the compliments coming. I suck them in like a black hole. FEED MY EGO

Never been to the Wheeling Civic Center, would like to go...

WesBanco arena RULES.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: CBlog trip to a Nailers game.

DO IT

(someone better at organizing than me anyway)

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Hey, everybody! Looks like c-blog isn't that lively right now, but neither am I. I had my car wash today for YB. Horrible to clean tires but otherwise fun ...

Funny story time, I was waving a sign for the car wash, and this guy slowed down, made eye contact, and then hit his gas pedal. Also, a woman who I'm assuming was high shouted "You're Crazy!" at me. My highlight was this guy stopping his car, telling me to come over, giving me a few bucks, and complaining we didn't advertise well enough. My one friend asked me when I was finished holding the sign "Was he hitting on you?"

No one read my link last night? I linked yinz up with Vinny news last night ... jokes. *smiles* JK.

Pittsburgh's Own Bill Thomas? Sounds like crap, but he can come, I guess ... *smiles*

Raybin said...

I linked yinz up with Vinny news last night ... jokes.*smiles* JK.

Don't back down from that shit! Comm it to it. Like this:

STAFF = JOKES

I'm still bitter that I provided three--3!--links to off-season moves by the Baby Pens a few days ago and they were never posted.

Tony Little said...

I'd be down for a NailerBlog being as I live in Wheeling when I'm not in Spain and go to every homegame. The arena isn't nice, but there really isn't a "bad" seat in the entire arena.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Yeeeaaaggghhhh! ROBOTS!!!!!

Dinner tonight: vegetarian Pad Thai. Mmmm...Pad Thai...

concertblog: a friend of mine (originally from Export, he was my roommate at PSU) has an extra ticket (6th row) to Thursday night's RUSH concert in Hershey.

The good: you get to see Rush, from the 6th row, in the free candy capital of the world. Also, on this tour, Rush uses video intros by Bob & Doug and by the South Park kidz.

If we're lucky, they'll play the Janne Pesonen anthem.

The bad: you have to sit with me and my friend and 10,000+ other retarded Rush geeks!

Lemmie know if you're interested.

Raybin said...

@tony

Agreed. Red section = Best deal in town

Speaking just for me, the fact that the arena isn't "nice" is what makes it great. It's an old, rundown hockey palace. I have a weakness for old buildings and things in slight disrepair.

SexyChubbs said...

fleuryous...

Recovering well from last night? Better than me?

Joose said...

Who the fuck is portraying Tony Little, and how have I missed him? I need to start commenting 900 times a day again so I can keep up with all of the new happenings.

Raybin said...

@joose

DO IT.

Real life = overrated.

Maria said...

I would like to know what drugs Tampa's GM/owners are doing.

So, c-blog, yesterday I was at a family reunion and I was talking with my cousin who is a self-proclaimed Pens fan. I asked her how she felt about Hossa, and she looked very confused. She had no idea he went to Detroit. Me=stunned and my cousin=joke.

Joose said...

Raybin

I know everyone misses my witty banter, so I may just have to DO IT!

Raybin said...

@joose

Goddamn right. I do anyway. And my opinion is everyone's.

KaylaJ said...

wow maria, that's harsh when you find yourself in that situation. i hope you stunned the jobber more by telling her santa & the easter bunny don't exist.

Tony Little said...

43rd! YES!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Raybin: It doesn't bother me that me much ... but for your sake ...

Staff = Jokes for not posting Raybin's news

*smiles* Feel better?

I update everyone on Pens and Steelers news ... kinda sad but whatev. I was at the car wash and a few girls there kinda like the Pens but don't follow it much ... they didn't know about Bugsy, so I was a bit upset because they were shocked *frowns*

Joose said...

haha Sweet. I feel loved.

Maria, i don't think that "joke" begins to cover what your cousin is.

WOW.

Tony Little said...

It's good to see Cblog has finally started to wake up.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Joose: Haha ... I saw that *smiles* But I won't job ya badly because it was for a good cause ...

@Colin: Happy birthday!

Maria said...

@ stokes

Her excuse was she lives on the western side of the state so she doesn't get much Pittsburgh news. I told her that was the worst excuse I've ever heard and suggested she start reading tPB. So, Chrissy, if you're reading this now I'm sorry but I find your lack of Penguins knowledge appalling.

SexyChubbs said...

My face hurts.

Anybody know any home remedies?

J.S. said...

I was going through my photoshop folder just now. Know I'm a few months late on this one, but I meant to get this one out during the Sens series.

I'll see if I have anything else that went unpublished since it's that slow during the summer.

The HZA said...

@ thenwchica:

That is really so kind of you to say! I mean Everett is such a classy hockey club. Does Beach still flinch anytime he hears the name "Bruton?"

Tony Little said...

@ JS

Your Photoshop of Heatley is "killer"

Stoosh said...

@ Joose -

I, for one, have missed the witty banter. DO IT.

I also haven't been able to be here as much as I've wanted to lately, either, thanks mostly to work teetering on the edge of insanity and then running all over creation the last couple of weekends.

What's for supper? Hmmmm...I did wings after my two softball games today and that wrapped up about 2:00-ish, so I'm not sure. I might just do scrambledeggsblog or something. Scrambled eggs sounds good for some reason.

Maria said...

@ SexyChubbs

Take a couple Advil and put an ice pack on your face. Seriously, that's about all you can do. Bravo on the drunken swingset escapade by the way. If it makes you feel any better, I got drunk on the 4th of July and fell of a porch and broke my ankle. At least your face isn't broken!

Tony Little said...

@ Stoosh

You're eating the fetus chicken and the momma chicken. way to go. :)

Stoosh said...

@ Tony Little

Fetus chicken? That's hilarious, although I'm not sure I'll ever think of scrambled eggs the same way again.

Tony Little said...

I had the same thing for brunch actually. I thought of it then. I didn't think I'd actually read someone else had wings and eggs today. muy loco.

TheFandangler said...

From last post...

Thanks to all that have facebook requested.

Penstone:

You're not alone on the Mac hating... I went to school at the art institute for a while and they're one of the reasons I quit.

I understand thats a long time, however, they are paying him under 8 mil per season...

jefe penguino said...

@chubbs -see? swing jumping is not as easy as it looks. my ankle has healed since my try. my other ankle now hurts for some reason that i dont recall from a drunken blackout friday night..


[kenny stride]

Tony Little said...

cblog is like a really slow chatroom today.

Tony Little said...

66 buries it!

stokes said...

i am not even going to attempt any swing jumping any time soon. too many injuries i'm hearing about out there.


chubbs, when i broke my face off of a jet ski a few summers ago, basically all i could do was put ice on it and hurt. oh, and the fiance's mother made me gargle iodine or some disgusting-ass shit because i wrecked it in the dirty, dirty Mon and had open cuts in my mouth because of it. and bit through the skin beneath the lip. not fun.


i got pretty lucky, but it still was really painful for about 2 days.

TheFandangler said...

So who's down for Austin Lemieux playing for the pens and becoming buries it part deux?

yeah 66 buries it.. for par!

Swing jumping? broken ankles?
You guys - that's the first sign of early onset adulthood/middle age when you can't just "do" that kind of stuff you did as a kid anymore. I climbed a tree and got stuck, then nearly de-crotched myself getting down. It's even harder after Coronas. You're both lucky to be alive!

Dr. Turkleton said...

@sexychubbs

I'm surprised your blushing bride to be didn't kick your ass for being on cblog while entertaining guests...

If she didn't bust your balls last night...she has it filed away to use for another time.

Doc Turkl,
Nice pick up on the multiple personalities! Ted Kennedy was on here yesterday too, and I think I saw Howard Dean in the hallway --RAAAAAAA!!!!

eileenover said...

then nearly de-crotched myself

I have never heard that phrase before, and I just laughed for a good minute.

SexyChubbs said...

Oh, I only wish I was trying to pull a Kenny Stride. No, it wasn't even that glorified. I just fell off. For no reason (other than the alcohol).

I've just iced it for the last two hours. I'm hoping that helps.

Thanks for making me feel better.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@largeturkey: He'll be 40 years old ... he's not Mario Lemieux and won't be in the best shape of his life at that age ...

And besides they probably ran out of money to give him ...

@Jefe: Mario Lemieux is 28th because he wanted to give everyone else a chance ... Roenick's doing pretty well ...

stokes said...

Wow, chubbs. you just "fell off?"

chubbs = EPIC FAIL.


HAHAHA....

jefe penguino said...

looks like brett hull is really enjoying retirement.

SexyChubbs said...

Definite Epic Fail.

Yup, I was swinging. I was trying to slow it down (you know, the reverse momentum technique), and as I leaned forward, I just fell. Didn't brace my fall. Landed face-first in a pile of woodchips.

Not my finest moment.

However, not my worst either.

@ stokes -

Fact. Problem is, like I mentioned on the earlier post, my fiancee doesn't find it very funny. My wedding is only 13 days away! Make up has already been mentioned here, as well as threatened by her.

She's handling it amazingly well. She told me she's holding all of her anger to the point it doesn't heal for the wedding.

@thenwchica

Okay...I can't read either of those two blogs because that one chick is a Spokane fan and the other is a Tri-Cities fan. I would have to punch both of those girls in the face. lol

You and Raybin can go on tirade against girls. I hear he likes to punch women, or was that drag queens - my memory fails me? I'm sure he can't tell the difference either way.

captain skip said...

Kaylaj,

Sometime next season, when the Pens get ready to make their run, we need the "Dean" speech, with all of the hockey teams that we're going to "take" added. I remember he mentioned taking Michigan, just before the "raaaaaaaah!"

My sabertooth kitten chewed through the cord on my hybrid controller during nhl 08 last night. All of a sudden I had no control! I wondered what he was doing under there. Went and bought the wireless version today...

J.S. said...

@jefe, barkley and especially his swing is a joke.

I've never seen anybody with a trainwreck of a swing like his. It's like he has a 2-step process. He's probably one of a few pro athletes that I can beat on the course, but that isn't saying much.

I have a solid drive, but the problem is that's it's far from consistent. If I keep it straight, it's anywhere from 260-280+. However, that's not the norm. Usually it's about 220-230 straight out, then it slices about 40 yards minimum as if it hit a wall.

stokes said...

Thank you Erik.


I truly do not care what an internet loser has to say about me, but good for you. i'm glad you feel better now.

jefe penguino said...

@j.s. -i just started golfing recently cause my friend dragged me out to the course a couple times. i shank it most the time. a good shot here and there. but i dont think i care enough to try for improvement.

LJ said...

I have only posted a few times, but I am a fairly consistent lurker. Recently some things have made me realize that even by just observing this community here, things rub off. For instance, is it bad that when someone told me today that her daughter got a chinchilla, it made me think of cblog? Over the 4th, when I realized that B. E. Taylor was singing at a local festival, I couldn't wait to find out if Jeff Jimmerson would be joining him... sometimes they sing together! And why did my cousins visiting from Boston think it was strange that I called the lemonade guy by name at the Pirates game? They just didn't understand. But I knew that you would.

Lionel Richie is hot jamz.

Maria said...

Sundays are the worst.

Yep, gonna have to agree with you there fleuryous. When I was little, Sundays meant waking up at 7am and being dragged to church by my parents. Now Sundays mean waking up at 7am and vomiting due to copious amounts of alcohol consumed the night before.

I'm only 21!! Breaking my ankle had nothing to do with age and everything to do with a keg.

David said...

I tried to get "Free Candy" added into Brook's wikipedia article, but as usual, they are communistic F's that think a blog isn't a "reliable source" for a nickname. Also apparently, Rutuu saying "He was giving out free candy" isnt the same as calling him free candy.

KaylaJ said...

lj chinchilla speak will always be accepted here!

sabrejets said...

Well I did a good bit to turn it into a nuthouse for which I apologize. However, I'd rather see the comments have a little humor injected into them than become a series of profanity laced tirades. How sad it must be that someone has to come on here and provoke people to get attention for themselves.
I mean, if you don't like the internet culture on here, the abbreviations, the terminology people use who comment, whatever...

Go somewhere else.

Just ignore the troll, he'll get tired of it...

If nothing else, as Stokes said, at least I have a hell of a story!

@sexychubbs

We can all have sympathy with a Darwin Awards candidate.

sabrejets said...

So, How 'bout those Buccos...?

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Just came back from church ...

I missed Batman and Robin?! No, wait come back ... I'll give the bat signal

(Sorry I'm a fan of Batman and the Adam West version)

sabrejets said...

Kaspar,

...and Frank Gorshin was a native Pittsburgher. I know the movies are completely different, but there will never be another Riddler, not in any version at any time...

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@sabrejets: He was an awesome Riddler ... he died a couple years ago, I'm pretty sure.

Harrison Ford turns 66 today ... Woo!! Is the Staff signing Indiana Jones any time soon?

sabrejets said...

Kaspar:

You're right, his estate has a tribute site here...

J.S. said...

no, Indy has accepted a 4 yr 34 mil contract from the Oren & Lennie show.

Erik = still a joke

Josh Melvin said...

@Maria

I was at work the other day and set down my hoodie, and told my friend Jason (who happens to be a huge Wings fan) not to steal it. He proceeded to say that he probably would steal it, since he already stole Hossa.

me=stunned.

him=flipped off.

fleuryous said...

I enjoy a good hoodie for time to time.

What are your favorite hoodies?

Mine: my Free Candy and LeGAME hoodies. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

fleuryous said...

*from, not for


PREPOSITIONS RULE.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@J.S.: The bastards! Another reason I have to watch them ... if it wasn't for Bugsy, I would want them to fail miserably ... (and yet I kinda want them to anyways ...)

@sabrejets: I wonder if Nolan is going have another Batman movie and put the Riddler in it ...

fleuryous said...

The Joker= best Batman villain EVER.

brndlynn said...

IHK: you have taken the first step towards being over "him" by admitting that you may want pittsburgh south to fail. im so proud! haha.

TheNWChica said...

Hey Staff or anyone else who might know...

Is the Classy Dickie the only design that comes on the messenger bag? Not that that is bad, I just wasn't sure if I was missing one of the more prominent logos.

I'm ordering shirts for vacationblog, and want to advertise with a bag too.

Oh, and if it's okay with Stephen and the staff, I was going to print out small versions of Dickie and make some into stickers with my sticker machine, committing possible vandalism in the name of the blog on the island of Oahu in about 2.5 weeks. Do it!

sabrejets said...

kaspar:

I guess they still need to be able to use the riddler, especially since the movies are true to original comic and not the camp of the tv series. I just think if Gorshin were around they could have put him in these movies and made him more evil...he had the maniacal part down pat...

paul said...

i think the most hilarious thing about lecavejoke's signing is that he's still going to be a 7.75mil cap hit when he's 35-39 years old, and scoring 40 points a year on the 3rd line.

its going to be even better when he pulls a ziggy palffy at 33 and the team has to take the hit for another 6 years with no player to show for it.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@fleuryous: No love for the Penguin or Mr. Freeze? *laughs* Yeah ... I don't think so either ...

@brndlynn: I'll never get over him ... look at my username, I still haven't gotten over Kaspar. Kaspar and Malone are tied for my favorite Pen (don't worry, Lemieux is like 1B ... which I don't think a lot of people have him as ...)

@sabrejets: He popularized the Riddler and all ... I mean, the Riddler was an enemy of Batman, but he made him an arch-nemesis. I don't know how big of a character he will be in the Nolan Batman movies.

Maria said...

@ josh

He didn't steal your hoodie because he already stole our backup goalie too. Pittsburgh=ConkBlocked

So is it wrong that when I watch Scrubs and see Dr. Cox in a Wings jersey (or even worse, a Cheli's Chili Bar shirt) I boo? The Red Wings are battling the Patriots for my most hated sports team.

Carroll said...

stoosh - Flashpoint is on again tonight at 10pm (not sure if it's playing where you are) but I thought I would give you a heads up just incase. Seeing you missed it on Friday night.

I'll send you a message on FB also just in case.

Joose said...

IHK!

I laughed when I realized I typed the wrong thing at first. I think I didn't notice because it was typed in all capital letters. hahaha

brndlynn said...

@ ihk: well at least it seems that you can talk about him without saying you're teary eyed. thats def progress. and theres nothing wrong with buries it being 1b. he's not my fav pen ever either.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Joose: *smiles* I think we should just call him Colon now ... he probably won't realize it and wonder why we're calling him that *laughs*

@brndlynn: I was teary-eyed today because some of the girls at the car wash were asking me about the Pens and didn't know about Bugsy *frowns* Actually I am getting better ... Eric P's video makes me sad a bit but it's helping me move on a little ... it depends on my mood ... *smiles*

C-Blog isn't very lively right now ...

brndlynn said...

@ ihk: i dont think i know which video you're talking about. btw - did you go to the "We've got guys" website? they're are voting on who is more attractive - Rick Nash or Bugsy.

Joose said...

I can't stop sleeping today. I slept from 4AM until 2PM, and then I took a nap from 5 until 9. The more I sleep, the more tired I feel. I could definitely go back to sleep now without a problem, but I must refrain.

Joose said...

IHK

Do you have any idea how many people have already called him "Colon" incorrectly during his lifetime? I had a Colin in my class during my elementary/high school years, and I heard mispronunciations quite a few times. I was barely ever around the kid, and I heard it.

Hip said...

What I learned on call this weekend: if you even think you have to pee, GO immediately. Because with my fucking luck, the next think you know a code is called and trying to do chest compressions while contracting your bladder sphincter is not easy.

I'm sad to have missed Wingblog 2.0. But I will own Wingblog 3.0.

Is TB for real? Reading about their latest shinnanigans everyday is enough to make you think the Twilight Zone really does exist.

And on a related note, who else is pumped for the new X Files flick? And why didn't I already know this was coming out? I'm losing it.

Go Pens.

Hip said...

Joose - sleep for me girlfriend. Sleep for me.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Joose: That's awful ... Colon? Really? That's sad ... I'll let him be then ... *smiles*

@Brndlynn: Ryan Malone tribute video Eric P. is SteelCityAssault and a poster here at tPB ... he hasn't been here in a while but he's probably busy. Anyways, he makes really amazing videos, and he made this one as well. Try to figure out which comment I posted *laughs*

BTW I just voted over there ... BUGSY!! WOOOO!!

brndlynn said...

ihk: thanks for the link. i hadnt seen that one before. i love that it ended with the ottawa wrap around goal. the place erupted after he scored that one.
o, and could you possibly have written this one:
Bugsy, DON'T LEAVE ME!!

TheFandangler said...

Rock...

...solid.

TheFandangler said...

I needed to stop by the blog because I'm spent from all the "Any Cello Hate"... get it?... ok I'm gunna go for a jog or something lol.

Stoosh said...

@ Carroll -

!!!!!

Thanks for the heads-up on that! I caught your post at like five after ten, so I was able to catch most of the opening.

Goodtimingblog! Wooo!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@brndlynn: Yeah, that video is awesome. I love that he included him harassing Comie, his DiP slip and score, and him launching a Devil ... I'm gonna miss Bugsy ...

And that must have been hard for you to figure out who I was *laughs*

Dr. Turkleton said...

believe it or not...

REAL hockey news:

Jason Williams signs with the A-T-L.

1 yr - 2.2mil

that'll still leave them a tad under 6mil left...TO REACH THE SALARY CAP FLOOR!!!!!!!

Thrasher Organ-i-zation = still a joke.

I'm sure Raybin will be posting about this in the next 24-36 hours! [jk - hahahaha!]


[Han shot first]

penstone410 said...

i dont recall a time cblog was this deadblog

joose
i know what you mean about that sleep stuff.. my schedule is so out of whack that i sleep for two days straight and then im up for three.. its insane

Dr. Turkleton said...

hmmmm...

that was strange.

here the link.

wilsmith said...

whattup?

Stoosh said...

@ Joose -

I was the same way with sleep today. I took a nap at 5:00 and wanted to be up at 6:30 again. I slept until almost 8:00.

I get days like that, though, and I always seem to get them after particularly busy weeks. Monday started for me at 3:00 AM when I woke up and didn't really end until I got home at almost 8:00 PM because I had to travel to our West Virginia plant to conduct our annual inventory. Tuesday was busier than hell at work because it was our first day back from a weeklong shutdown. Wednesday and Thursday were busy and yesterday was hectic because we spent almost five hours traveling round-trip for Christine's cousin's wedding.

After a while, maybe it just catches up with you and you need a day to just relax like that.

sirimanni said...

look at this jobber i saw on the road today

TheFandangler said...

Hey wilsmith:

How much bank you make on that Hancock video you made?

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Toews is now captain of the Blackhawks in case any one didn't know or wanted to ... I'm interested to see Chicago next year. I'm not a big fan, but I just want to see if they are gonna be any good next season.

I'm going to finish watching Brothers Grimm (I love Ledger still) Good night, all!

coffeytalk said...

ihk-

your avatar looks like what i'd find in Charlie's basement.

zoinks!

Flyer Hater said...

Good Lord, 183 comments? What on God's Green Earth is there to talk about?

eileenover said...

Captain? That was quick.

TheFandangler said...

Yay Eileen!...lol...

Italian soccer team... yikes.

Dan said...

williams to atlanta, dammit! we should've gotten him! eat me shero!

TheFandangler said...

Dan, just give him some of your ever so popular aids...

dlonlo said...

FLYER HATER = JOKE

FLYER HATER <3 PENSBLOG CHARLIE

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@coffeytalk: I put this avatar up because of penstone last night and it still goes along with the avatar theme. I would love to see Charlie's basement then *laughs* Sadly, all of them are married ... why pose in your underwear, teases! The guys from left to right are Gianluca Zambrotta (sitting), Fabio Cannavaro, Andrea Pirlo, Manuele Blasi, and my favorite Gennaro "Rino" Gattuso. Blasi's my least favorite ... actually if I was the photographer I wouldn't have picked him.

@Eileen: I know, he's what 20? He's not Sid, but he's their equivalent ... I like him as captain as compared to Kane. I like Toews better than Kane, though. Even if he drops f-bombs on tv ...

Alright I have to go to bed now ... I have to get more business ads tomorrow ... lameblog.

TheFandangler said...

Cblog....taken to the nearest hospital and pronounced Dead on arrival.

...sad times.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Toews: The next Steve Yzerman.

IHK...is there a link confirming it?...I've seen a lot of 'leaked' reports that Denny Savard IS going to do it, but haven't seen anything official as of yet.

This is perfect timing for the Hawks to name him Capt'n...they remind me of the Pens of 2006-07.

Annie said...

WOW, THAT JOBBERS TRUCK DROVE ALL THE WAY FROM ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND??

/dumbblog

brndlynn said...

im very interested to see Chicago play this year as well. they remind me of the Pens from a few years ago. I think that they may have the best shot of overtaking the red wings.

TheNWChica said...

Watching the Miss Universe pageant, and one of the finalists is Miss Russia. I feel so lame that I was a little disappointed that the translator was not George. lol

Stoosh said...

Looking at the Blackhawks roster, the only other guy who makes sense to me as a captain other than Toews might be Robert Lang, and his role has diminished with the team. Havlat might make sense but he can't walk from here to the end of my street without getting hurt.

Toews is 20, so he's not that much older than Sid was when the Pens broke the announcement that they were making Crosby captain. And for as solid as Pat Kane is, I think Toews is the face of that team.

Dr. Turkleton said...

thenwchica

my sources told me Miss USA bit the dust & took a tumble...just like Miss USA '07 did!

I'm sure video evidence will be on Gore shortly.

BTW...any good salmon recipes? as in glazes or preparation?...I assume you eat the stuff 4-5 times a week, right? ;)

Dr. Turkleton said...

Lang or Havlat probably would be a one and done Capt'n....if they even make it through the year wearing the Commit to the Indian.

eileenover said...

I'm going insane. My texts won't send for some reason. I know this is of no importance to anyone, but I had to tell someone because it's driving me nuts.
