Its All Part Of The Plan

Ted Nolan got fired. [Islanders Army]

No more Indian jokes.

[ Matthew N ]


Such a shame.


:: [Doctor Mirtle] says the move was poorly timed, with the Islanders rookie camp starting the same day the head coach was fired.


The whole thing is more awkward than that time Charlie hosted the Subway Nightly Sports Call with gay hater Ron Cook.




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

You may know that Geno is the owner of a prison themed restaurant back in Russia. For what reason, who knows, probably just to make those raised in the USSR days feel at home. Some Russian site has a review complete with pictures. [ Babel fish translation ]


[ Steve M ]

Looks like a solid place to eat.

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

With the all star break, this cotton candy guy can rest up for the rest of summer.
What a human.


[ Dan from The PITT Stop ]


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

Bill from [Abel To Joke] is having some fun naming his boat, and taunting us in the process.



That would be a nice boat if this were 1984.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

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


:: [ Sports Illustrated ] lists the 20 greatest individual sports rivalries, and reminds us of long ago when from time to time a hockey player would actually grace their cover.

:: In the spirit of the all star game. Here is a nice list of hockey players who played baseball. [Greatest Hockey Legends ]

:: Rewrite 1993, someone needs to do this. [Taking One For The Team]

:: Chris Mack doesn't read Bob Smizik. [CMSLC]

Speaking of which...


In old Bob's column, we must have fell asleep before we read this:

"Rumors circulating around town that 1250 ESPN would bring in Jerome Bettis as part of its new afternoon drive-time team seemed too preposterous to even investigate. Bettis would not figure to be interested in such a role and nor did his skill set seem to be right for such a show. But a phone call to Bettis' business manager Jahmal Dokes put a different spin on the possibility."

Think about how fun it would be to prank Jerome Bettis everyday.

Game #22
[Come On Up For The Rising. PENS WIN]
[pit.<span class=[<span class=
6 - 5
SHOOTOUT

Despite his best efforts, Body by Jake could not get Daniel Alfredsson's groin ready.

And as Dean McAmmond gets denied by Sabu, we wait on pins and needles for FSN to switch their camera to who was taking the next shot.

Jarkko Ruutu stands at center ice. All business.
The hopes and dreams of a battered Penguin nation on his stick.
We all know what move he is going make.

But wait.

Gerber vomits all over himself.

Looks like someone was too busy reading his own press clippings and not the scouting report.


Game.

[ TheFandangler ]
"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."

I always knew Ron Cook liked men.

My shoes cost more then Ron Cook's house.


WOOOOOOOOOO

sh0ez said...

Weeee.

Jawsh said...

I don't know how much fun it would be to prank Bettis. After a prank it would probably be confused silence, then an awkward laugh, then before taking the next caller he'll remind everyone that he is from Detroit.

penstone410 said...

my old principal's name was mr smizik, i wonder if any relation to bob.. i'll send him that photoshop of his brother..

BlacknGold66 said...

Stokes is so money that he doesn't even know it.

eileenover said...

I'm off to bed c-blog friends. Goodnight.

canaan said...

8th is the new first.


wooooo!

brndlynn said...

this was by far one of my favorite games of the season but I almost missed it. my ex - the self proclaimed "huge pens fan" - decided that instead of leaving in time to see the game we would stay at his parents house playing scrabble. my ex=EPIC FAIL. by the time we got back the game was long over but luckily I had dvr'd it so i was able to watch it that night. the next morning I told him that after this win they would be like a new team. he told me that should bring back melichar and endo and get rid of gonchar and staal. turning point of the season and relationship. thank GODard for hockey!

Kat said...

I still find it extremely amusing that Geno owns a restaurant. A jail themed one at that.

debrisslide said...

That restaurant seems like some kind of mobster hideout.

And pranking Bettis would be hilarious. I really hope I get to hear some of that shit.

Beav said...

@ Brnd

Wow, what a toolbox. Scrabble over the Pens? There would have been mutiny at the parents' house is the g/f tried to pull that one on me. Luckily, she is as addicted to the Guins as I am.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Eileen, taking the first like she's been there before...BarrySanderswhenhescoredatouchdownblog

Stokes, huge of you to spark a mini-discussion on Epic Boobs.

Brndlynn, that night a hockey game saved your life. The bass player in that video = the definition of all business. Your ex = the toolchest where all tools are kept...

Scowlin' Bob Smizik's dick hat is all the rage in Ottawa

And Nolan photoshopped as Spirit from G.I. Joe sends me to bed...

sh0ez said...

Everybody not going to TDKblog is missing out.

penstone410 said...

i, for one, think geno's restaurant abso-friggin-lutely hilarious! i cant stop laughing.. especially while reading the babelfish translation

penstone410 said...

oh no, sh0ez thats IN-FUCKING-SANELY AWESOME!!!

penstone410 said...

even though i wont be in the theater, will you PLEASE do that for my picture and send it to me?

brndlynn said...

i think if any of you ever tried to have a hockey related conversation with my ex you would probably pull a "Dr Hook" McCracken on him. i know there were plently of times i was sorely tempted to. i swear i often wondered if there was a past "relationship" with Melichar that I should have known about. lol.

penstone410 said...

..which is why it is a VERY good thing that he is now your EX

brndlynn said...

in other news... the smizik hat ps is great. i love how Charlie is peering over the cubicle wall.

brndlynn said...

if anyone needs a hockey fix this should help.

jefe penguino said...

i was going to go to bed, but i dont like having an odd number of beer left in the fridge.


@sh0ez -you are out of control!

penstone410 said...

jefe
always a good reason to stay up a litle longer..

sh0ez said...

I made the final update to Dickie. I "wrote" the time, date, etc. myself. I'm beginning to love this tablet . . .

Laynie, your picture is now on the page.

Goodnight everyone! More tomorrow!

jefe penguino said...

penstone -yes. and i will still have 28 left for tomorrow...


@BnG66

you know what they say about a guy with a big vocabulary?

he must have a big dictionary.

speaking of which i commented on the cblog dicktionary. you need to delete that gildo video.

penstone410 said...

thanks sh0ez!! i have a tablet pc, i should probably start putting it to good use..

jefe
28 for tomorrow?? aw, come on, thats not gonna be enough!!

jefe penguino said...

penstone, im probably going to share those though.

sh0ez, you shouldve worked that nun in there on the last pic. she loves the joker.

penstone410 said...

sh0ez
holy shit! you used the picture with the nun in the backgroud?!

you are a BEAST my friend!!

sh0ez said...

Brandi and Laynie have been updated!

sh0ez said...

According to photos from the movie/promos that I've seen before, non-important people in the picture are scratched out somehow.

penstone410 said...

jefe
share? with me, of course.. oh wait, i will be watching 3 little children, not such a good idea

sh0ez
i am speechless at your skills

brndlynn said...

everytime sh0ez says hes going to bed he comes back with an unreal ps.

jefe penguino said...

well the kids are gonna need some though.. actually i have softball practice tomorrow and thought i would show up with some brewskies. hope nobody there minds.

penstone410 said...

drnks to the kids i babysit?
hmmm ..IDEA!

jefe penguino said...

i think seeing the rewrite of 1993 hurts more than the actual 1993.

children need to loosen up once in awhile too.

and no, i dont not own a van with FREE BEER on the side.

jefe penguino said...

shamWOW 2

penstone410 said...

the FREE BEER van.. youd attract much more than little kids with that one!

jefe penguino said...

yeah that would be a fun one to take on the road. i would never stop though.

brndlynn said...

did i hear something about free alcohol and a creepy looking van? count me in!

jefe penguino said...

hahaha. wow. shamWOW.


maybe sh0ez can make free candys van into a batmobile van.

penstone410 said...

..see told you jefe, theyll come running!

i say photoshop a FREE BEER van with you driving at the wheel..

jefe penguino said...

i cant afford to give that away. i have to drink it too. maybe it should say BYOB instead.

penstone410 said...

so its 5:30
anyone still up?
jefe??

jefe penguino said...

yeah. now you got me photochopping darnit.

penstone410 said...

haha really?
i was actually going to go do that, until i just saw your comment. let me know how it turns out!

and i made the mistake of going to abel to joke to look at that damn boat post. now im all pissedoffblog. well, until i read this comment: how about “Money buys Hossa but not a good boat”
..if that was from someone here, KUDOS my friend, you made it all better!

jefe penguino said...

you can try your hand at a new van if youd like. i may not even make it through this ahah.

whats that site? Anal to Everyman?

penstone410 said...

okay, ill prob get to it at some point, im cleaning out my hard drive right now- boredomblog

im not even sure what direction i was supposed to go in. but here i am.

penstone410 said...

hahahahahahahaa!
free ladders?
that wasnt what we discussed!!
still hilarious though

stokes said...

I may have posted this story at some point after the Ottawa game, but here it is again:

I was hammered drunk- i know, classy- during that game. The Fiance's cousin was making these drinks that were super alcoholic and tasty as all getout. So, i'm hammered and the SO begins. The entire house and watching, I'm pumped up and as the SO begins i'm high fiving everyone in sight. Flash forward to RUUUUU's game winning SO goal. I'm so pumped i could bench press the house. I go around the room high fiving again, which included two grandma's, one of which smacked herself in the face after i whacked the shit out of her hand. Whoops.

Then, i started talking about giving The Fiance a Jarkko Ruutu style elbow as she's going to bed. Apparently, that's not funny.

Turk:

"Just say you're prejudiced against all races."

Most lawyers don't want educated people on a jury anyway. They want people they can sway by playing to their emotions, so if you give off the image that you're an intelligent person who'll actually consider the evidence in a cold, emotionless manner, you'll probably never get picked.

Of course, the one time my wife got called up for jury duty, it was in her hometown while she was still in college, both lawyers trying the case knew her dad (who's also a lawyer), and she still got picked. Ended up as the forewoman too.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

On Mike and Mike this morning, they were interviewing Brian Cashman and talking about the Dark Knight. They were comparing superheroes, and the fat one kept trying to make his point that Batman was the weakest because he needed his utility belt to have any kind of power, going so far to say that Aquaman was better because he could kick a shark's ass or something to that effect. For some reason, he neglected the fact that Bale's Batman can kick your ass a hundred ways to sunday.

TheFandangler said...

JVM: Mike and Mike are turds... I occasionally catch their show on ESPN and I go wow... that's a shame. It's probably mostly do to the fact that is ESPN.

Fatty said...

My my, cblog is in a bad way this morning...

i hope charlie has his way with him

TheFandangler said...

Fatty: The only thing to really look forward to is the possibility of the schedule tomorrow and that excitement will last all of 20min to an hour...

Fatty said...

Haha, good idea. I don't have ps at work though, so I'm going to have to wait now.

fan:

What do you mean there's nothing to be excited about? The All-Star break is upon us! Haha, didn't you see Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldgerg kicking ass last night?!

TheFandangler said...

No... I missed it. Thank god.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Actually, Cashman and the gay Mike were arguing for Batman. And yesterday at work when my boss asked me what I thought about the whole Favre situation (he hates ESPN as much as any of us), I told him that he'll go to the Vikings, win this year's Super Bowl, and the entire state of Wisconsin will be ablaze from all of the self-immolations.

Fatty said...

Ha yeah it was on the tvs at the bar last night and I got a good chuckle from it.

Dan said...

well i guess if they worked in porn they would have to be hard at work, now that i think about it.

I got picked for a criminal jury once. It was for 19 y/o dude that killed another in Carrick over 2 ounces of sticky - but the defense was he shot him due to self defense.

After 7 days of testimony the judge ruled it a mistrial. A mother of a girl that was sort of involved came forward to say they were setting the kid up to rob him. They didn't know he would have a desert eagle tucked in his waistband.

It was nice I still got paid at work for the time served, but so very interesting to see how the court system world works, WITHOUT being the one directly involved.

wait is it Gino or Geno? I thought it was decided it was actually spelled with an I?

TheFandangler said...

siri:

They base that it's spelled with an "I" based on what was on is hockey stick. I honestly believe that was a misprint on the stick. I like Geno better so I type it "Ge(i)no"... no confusion there. lol

Stilly said...

The Geno/Gino debate will probably rage on longer than the debate about the Shroud of Turin.

On his Nike Bauer site, it's spelled Geno.. then again Bauer is Canadian....

okay thanks for the gino/geno history..i personally would prefer Geno with the E because it reminds me on Geno from Mario RPG and how awesome that game is

Does anyone know if Pen Station up at the Mellon is open in July? As in, now? Last I heard their hours were 11-4, but I don't know if that's just during the season or not.

99.99% sure they're open year round and the same times. I have been there during the summer but that was last year.

Richard Simmons said...

@ Fattie

Hey Cutie I'm gonna say this. It's too early to predict. None of the players have played together or even met during this long gruesome off season. So basically it's up in the air and it's about chemistry. Whatever/whoever jells together. No matter what the Pens have pressure on their shoulders from all of us fans around the world.

Lord Stanley is coming sooner or later. But, I'm in no position to predict.

Which reminds me. I have to finish that stick handling video before the Love Guru comes out on DVD. I'm sure people would want to watch me stick handling other than that other waste of film.

Found out that my job today involves pressing a button once every 10 minutes for the test I'm running. Still not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. The one bad thing that I do have to deal with is that I have to walk to the front of the building to refresh my c-blog.page.

So far I'd say that the my cousin vinnie signing is the smartest thing the Oren & Lennie show has done, although I still question how smart it was to pay him that much when he hits his late 30s.

re: epicboobsgirl. Posted a link last nite with a bunch of pigs of her. If my itouch were easier to navigate with, I'd remove it. Why? Let's just say chris hansen probably wouldn't approve of it.

wilsmith said...

I think, as far as all-around talent goes, Sabu will be the better bet going into the season. Fleury has shown no consistency and will inevitably cost this team in the long run.

Trade Whitney.

I dont think MT should be the coach of this team. He's good at motivating the young guys, but he's not a good X's and O's coach. WAKE UP RS -- Call Pat Quinn,

Malkin is too soft, and I think that comes from being raised in Europe. All europeans are soft and are not as willing to lay it on the line like Canadians.

Whew, a weekend without cblog was tough.

go Pens.

brett favre.

TheFandangler said...

They are both almost certain AHL'ers... Shero needed to fill out that roster and I'd assume he;s almost done.

Kris Beech. Wtf. I wonder if he's still with Sonni Abatta, aka the reason why I don't watch KDKA anymore. That woman...don't even get me started. Annoying x10.

Lara- I feel ya. I'm getting grumpy because I just want to LEAVE.

I believe a while back staff said they would do something if Pens re-signed Kris Beech. Anyone remember?

TheFandangler said...

I watched the on the record vid this morning. It's so funny when they ask him if he has a drug problem he totally gets uncomfortable. It's sad really.

P.O. said...

the lack of activity on cblog is making me insanely productive today... ive gotten more work done today than i have in a week

TheFandangler said...

I am sorry for this PO...

Original Nathan said...

Wasn't Beech's contract a two-way deal anyway? Unless the Pens lose about 7 forwards to injury simultaneously, I doubt anyone except the good people in Wilkes-Barre will be watching Mr. Beech fail on a regular basis.

eileenover said...

Ok who the heck is Bill Thomas?

Joose said...

HAHA Son of a Beech.....

Carroll said...

@TheFandangler - I like the fact he says it's not a problem for him. In no way does he say if he uses drugs, he just says it's not a problem for him/same with his partying.

I wonder what will be in our papers next year when we don't have Ray to use as a scapegoat. Can Ruu become the new "it" person, with a different spin (I hope).


JJJJJJJAAAAAAARRRRRRRKKKKKKKOOOOOOO

Eileen:

He came from phoenix. He played high school hockey at Fox Chapel. He's just a solid AHL guy.

debrisslide said...

joose - just beat your tetris score. WOOOO.

Bill Thomas seems pretty solid. Fox Chapel boy. Wooo again.

eileenover said...

I hope we're all wrong about Beech and he ends up doing really well. However, I don't see that happening.

TheFandangler said...

Beech and Thomas are just depth. We needed to bring in a few guys for the AHL and Shero gives us all solid news again.

Joose said...

BARELY.

You just wait, Deb. haha

TheNWChica said...

Where the hell IS everyone? When we're only on page one when it's lunchtime HERE...there's something afoot!

TheFandangler said...

Summer time bluessss.

Raybin said...

Original Nathan is absolutely right. Beech was signed as a stopgap in case of injury or someone needing rest, nothing more. He won't fuck up aything for more than a game or two. I really believe in case of long term injury, they'll call up Minard or James or someone.

jefe penguino said...

i dont wanna wait a whole other day for the schedule wtf.



RUUUUUUUUTUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

TheFandangler said...

Beech/Potash 08?... anyone?...anyone?

*Crickets*

TheFandangler said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...

...slowwwwwwwwww

TheNWChica said...

Hey Jefe....If Steve and Co. come down there this season, I am so there. I want to see the Pens and PMueller too!

debrisslide said...

Kris Beech entering Mellon Arena this year = not likely.

Stilly said...

Someone at the Trib needs to make up news for us to talk about.

P.O. said...

Ryan Stone also resigned a 1 year deal today in case anyone cares

Dan said...

BREAKING NEWS














i've been traded to columbus for 40 dozen donuts, 10 apple pies, and 4 ice cream cakes.

ah man!

TheFandangler said...

Good luck dan!

Drake = victim of FREE CANDY!...

...and probably Midget sex.

Maria said...

I didn't realize Drake was that old. When the hell is Chelios going to retire?

Dan said...

all in all, i think it was a fair deal.

chelios will never retire, because he is going for gordie howe's record.

Brett said...

"They're gonna have to pry my stick from my dead hands"

TheFandangler said...

Chelios = dead man skating... He just hasn't figured it out yet.

Maria said...

@brett, That can be arranged.

Dan said...

chris chelios is auditioning for the role of the crypt keeper

Maria said...

Chelios=joke. Correct me if I'm wrong but he didn't even play in the finals.

eileenover said...

"Is this the year Chelios retires?"

He's going to play until he literally dies skating.

TheFandangler said...

Maria:

He was a liability. So he just sat in his players box...wearing his depends.

TheFandangler said...

Dan: here's the current crypt keeper...

Steve Howe: guitar player for prog rock band Yes.

eileenover said...

Just because I love it

Brett said...

the above link is hilarious!

snickerdoodles said...

I think Chelios is still hanging around because the Red Wings organization supplies him with a season's supply of bran, personalized Depends, and now he has his own personal shower assistant. Who's name rhymes with "ossa!"

TheFandangler said...

Lol.

TheFandangler said...

"Hossa... my daipy is full"

Dan said...

beech had 11 pts in 25 games? get the hell outta here!

sh0ez said...

Screw Gabe's. Ugh. Made me stay an extra hour and a half.

Maria said...

Eileen, I love that every shift parody. Sid and Gretzky's voices are priceless.

I think Chelios needs one good run in with Free Candy & his wish of dying with his stick in his hands will be fulfilled.

God, I'm bitter today. Interning at the Trib is killing my soul.

TheFandangler said...

Settle down "little lady"...

Maria said...

fandangler, I'm about to reach through my computer screen and bitch slap you. =)

sh0ez said...
