should have been nominated for ESPY's best game moment.
(bastards!)

espn hates hockey

TheNWChica said...

This game still gives me goosebumps with the last 2 goals.

justinafi said...

tony white is the truth

Susan Burghart said...

And the memories flood back. Yet another reminder that I love the Pens.


AND THAT I F*ING HATE THE RED WINGS!!!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

That was so beautiful ... aww, memories ...

Now it kinda makes me sad because of the people who are gone ... *frowns*

luvnmypens said...

Thanks!! I needed that!

TheFandangler said...

"Fuckin' right boys"

TheFandangler said...

Malone...

*Frumpy face*

justinafi said...

A source has told me ESPN is considering former Pittsburgh Penguin Matthew Barnaby to replace Barry Melrose.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Fandangler: Don't make fun of Malone ... he put it all on the line ... and he's handsome when he doesn't get struck in the face by a teammate shotting the puck and it causes swelling ...

I'm gonna miss him *frowns*

This is making me sad, I need to be happier ... *goes to watch Kaspar's OT Goal*

TheNWChica said...

You bastards! I stayed up until 2:45 to finish that James Bond flick and they're reshowing it this morning. *facepalm*

Oh well, I got to hang with Jefe and Dr. Turk and see the new post first.

Doc Steel said...

When are the Pens coming out with the promotional season in review DVD? Do want now.

Rae Carruth's Trunk said...

Another one of my favorite moments from this years playoffs.

TheNWChica said...

I smell poo...must be a troll.

Oh, and the Price is Right is just not right without Bob Barker.

curtO. said...

Wow, watching that again reminds me of how I feared for my life at Joe Louis...standing with your arms raised like YOU just won it for the Pens doesn't bode well for not getting beat up.

Neither was making a comment about a great win to the dude wearing a black and gold t-shirt. Especially when it's a Livestrong t-shirt and he only wears it because he is dying of skin cancer and this was probably the last chance he would have to see them win it at home...oh yeah, then he waits at the bottom of the steps for ya so he can hold up his Lidjoke jersey to prove he is a Wings fan...

AAaaaaah, GREAT times. Really great times. (In my best BustaRhymes from 'Pass The Courvoisier' voice) "I'd do it again, I'd do it again."

btumpak said...

unreal game. syko is alive!

J.S. said...

justin, that's not really inside info if it was mentioned on the front page of the blog yesterday.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

ugh that video is like a kick in the balls that i don't have!

TheFandangler said...

j.s.:

I think he was being sort of sarcastic.

...My sources in Sweden are saying Matts is going to focus on his badminton career.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Here's Kaspar's OT goal:

Kaspar gets buried under the team

Here's some more videos I love to watch:
I wish I was born earlier so I could have seen this ...

I miss Kovi ...

Julia said...

ahh I'll remember where I was when that goal happened forever...Mellon Arena.

Going Five Hole said...

my wall still has the dent in it from when I punched it in excitement once Sykora's goal went in.

ahhh good times.

October yet?

J.S. said...

bah, that's the thing about this damn internet. sometimes you can never read sarcasm until it's too late. if that's the case justin, sorry about that.

Was skimming one of Puck Daddy's posts today, which led me to a page of the 20 worst uniforms ever. check out the editor.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Nice, the Mooterus is included in there.

KaylaJ said...

chinchilla!

and is it just me or at 1:29ish when they show MAF i hear "fuckin' right boys!"

and what's really nice is MAF, chinchilla, & gonchar will all be back

Dan said...

this explains the lack of posts in the other thread. anywho, here it is again

3rd jersey logos, new with pictographs!

Maria said...

That gave me chills.

kaylaj, yeah I hear "fuckin right boys" too. It would have been better if he would have said it in French: "Putain droit garçons!"

TheNWChica said...

@kayla: It's not just you. Someone said it. :)

meecrofilm said...

mm. july....

july is slower than the movie 'deep impact'

please allow a moment for that information to sink in.

Dan said...

chinchilla? i missed something somewhere. i didn't know mexicans knew what hockey was.

J.S. said...

as much as I want to like that coyote, I can't. because of the way the shadowing is, it looks like the coyote is running way with a rat in it's mouth that's dangling by the tail.

Russ Tundra said...

thanks for using my vid "again" guys.. lol It was the first one up after the game. By the way my Free Candy Jersey is sweet!!

J.S. said...

Sykora has a pet chinchilla that, from what I've seen, is somehow always mentioned when an article is written about him.

I still think it's kinda cool.

From time to time, Syko's chinchilla will even take time away from his caged wheel to post on c-blog.

Dan said...

i like the coyote, but then again, i have poor taste. atlanta = FAIL

don't worry dan, i really had to explain it when i first started using it. i mean, there aren't a lot of people having chinchillas as pets, let alone hockey players. i don't even know if he still owns PJ, but eh, its still cool to yell!

chica sure enough fang did say it. i'd say my mind isn't working, but that would be obvious by now.

and def want to see pics russ, of the jersey and burning

J.S. said...

I still haven't burned my "why not us" Flyers shirt.

I need to get a few more uses out of it, like waxing my jeep, maybe cleaning the wheels on the bike (excellent source of brake dust. mmmmmm, brake dust), etc., etc.

Not to worry, I still have a few summer parties to go to, where I'm sure there will be an open flame somewhere.

Myr said...

Woohoo! I made next years Pens and Wings in NHL08 last night and 2 min into the first game I injured Hossa!

Dan said...

echo echo echo echo echo echo

MizzPenz said...

Damnit. I hate it when I get all emotional at work. Thanks for that video of one of the best moments of last season. I will never forget that.

@Chica - Eerie. Husband and I were just talking about the whole Barker/Carey thing last night. Carey looks so completely lost and un-emotional up there. I said they would have done better if they had signed Wayne Brady instead!

akus said...

@dan,

this explains the lack of posts in the other thread.

Yesss indeedeeeee.

I been bitching about Directv over at "42 cents' for hoursssssss, only to see the new post & video here, after watching now i dont care HOW much i gotta pay to see the Pens, even if i do live in PA.

That vid is like an afternoon pick- me -up.......err second thought, the afternoon pick- me- -up i had in mind is wayyy better(only in the off season, i will add) Perhaps both afternoon- pick- me -up's are in order. Nothing wrong with watching the vid and being creative. One guarantee is
both pick- me -up's give goosebumps!

Dammit Directv. You are evil offering me NHL network but not FSN Pittsburgh.

Victor Raison said...

NHL Network is clutch in the off-season though. Right now I'm working my way through the Flames/Sharks series.

akus said...

Yes victor i agree.
I was sooooo happy to hear the sounds of hockey coming from my TV this morning,after getting Directv installed, but soon realized that because of my zipcode i can not receive FSN-Pittsburgh.

I seen some of the SJ/CLG series this morning.

So its either go back to Comcast, anty up for the sports package on Directv, or move 12 miles up the road.


I am thinking i am gonna anty up.

Philadelphia [AP]

What was supposed to be a simple balloon release for new Flyers STH's turned into an auditory reenactment of what it sounds like during a typical night in Dahntahn Filthy.

[HA!]

Anth 186 said...

wow it's bad enough that summer is dragging on with nothing big going on in the NHL... and now i have to see this video

lol

i can't wait for this upcoming season... my birthday is on 10/10, what a treat to have the season start then

Victor Raison said...

Meh, just ante up.

Dr. T: Ahahaha...gunshots...
Philadelphia sucks.

Filppula re-upped with detRIOT, in case anyone cares.

brndlynn said...

ive watched the video countless times before but I never noticed the "fuckin' right" before. once again i am indebted to cblog.

akus said...

Oh brndlynn, i always knew my Miracle Ear would come in handy!!

Surprised that Billy Mays does not have a patent on that.


F`ckin right!!

jefe penguino said...

FR!! woooooooooo.

B.Bell said...

Nice to see some new 3rd jersey designs. Always nice to see highlights on opening night and see some new uni's we've never seen before. Such a good way to break in a new season.

jefe penguino said...

@j.s. -i know what you mean about the coyotes logo. they couldve put a little more thought into that one, and the thrashers. and uniform numbers on the front i dont dig.

"BOLTS" is pure genius though....

kind of reminds me of this logo.

TheFandangler said...

Are those for sure logos?...

stokes said...

Jefe,


That's classic.

J.S. said...

and for those missing out on the wootoff, it has gotten weird.

this, followed up by this

BlacknGold66 said...

@Akus: That blows that you don't get FSN Pittsburgh.

You should actually write or call DirecTV and let them know that you don't get it, but that people 12 miles down the road do.

It actually works in most cases. The same thing happened here with Sports Time Ohio (which carries nearly all of the Indians games).

It wasn't up to DirecTV who got STO and who didn't. But some people complained and DirecTV made sure that STO included them in their coverage throughout Ohio.

If that doesn't work (or sounds like too much of a hassle) make sure that Pens games won't get blacked out on FSN Pitt if you get the sports package.

That is usually up to the NHL and NHL Center Ice. I wanted to get the sports pack for the easy $5 a month for all of the FSN's you get (including Pittsburgh) so I could watch the Pens... but alas they get blacked out (and the Blue Jackets don't even though Pittsburgh is closer than Columbus). So my only choice is to fork over for Center Ice.

Long story short (too late, I know)... bitch to DirecTV.

If that doesn't work - Make sure FSN Pitt won't blackout Pens games with the Sports Pack.

Otherwise you'll have the sports pack for no damn reason (unless $5 a month is worth it for Savran)

Tony Little said...

Tried shutting down TIOPS MLB Chat tonight...

Got bored, what can I say.
Here are some highlights that got past the"moderator"...

"I have Fiji water and a whole case of Fedkoblows"

"I've heard a rumor about the Pirates being interested in Pitcher Adam Caldwell of AAA Memphis"

"Derrick Rocco is the catcher the Bucco's we're interested in"


This one didn't get through, and subsequently the chat ended right after I sent it..

"Hey, Google is my source too"

Victor Raison said...

Is anyone else seeing these new commercials for the NHL Network?

"...if only 25 percent of the 100 percent only give 75 percent of the 110 percent then we're not going to be playing 100 percent.

Alright. Hit the showers."

Friggin' hilarious.

Dan said...

the woot off is still going? i've found those to be a waste of time, actually. a lot of junk and too much refurb stuff. i have baseball on, i am bored.

Dr. Turkleton said...

victor...

did you mean new for you and akus? cause those have been out since NHLNet became available in the PIT region in October.

hockeyfan0012 said...

Staff-

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the little banner at the top doesnt look right...it says "saturday 10.4" then "saturday 10.5". shouldnt one of them be sunday?

stokes said...

Good stuff Tony Little.

TIOPS = joke

stokes said...

Huge Mats Sundin News!!!!

KaylaJ said...

dan the woot off just ended. and if you were in the market for a penny kite, condoms, a personal "hand" massager", or even some bacon salt, you'd be in heaven. i'm personally bummed i missed on the roboraptor combo pack myself

BlacknGold66 said...

@Turk: New to him because he couldn't put the cat in the hat.

That's what it all boiled down to.

Dan said...

i watched the woot off for a while yesterday at work. it was a waste. not one thing i was remotely interested in. i did need to get charlie a birthday present though.........

Dr. Turkleton said...

bng66...

Not to be defensive, but that was offensive.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: I'm glad you aren't being neutral like the Swiss ... your timing on that was precise ...

BlacknGold66 said...

Hockey news...

Manitoba Moose changed name to

"Manitoba Mooseknuckle" ... story at 11.

In other sports news... I wish more professional atheletes had the character that C.C. Sabathia has.

C.C. thanks Indians fans

Class act.

akus said...

i watched NHL Network for a few hours today off and on.

I was going to post before, that i was sick of those two freaking commericials ( the one where they are standing on the ice and the "shower"one), i think they played it as much as the Dockers commercial, butttt,
i did like the one when they were in the locker room interviewing the coach and he said every cliche in the books.


Thanks for the info BnG66.
Will call for sure.
At least i am finding this out now instead of October 3rd.
The first & only channels i looked for were NHL Network and FSN-Pit.

@ tony little, wish i could have been a witness to the jobbing of TIOPS.

""Hey, Google is my source too", is a line that can be used again.

As DePaoli said tonight,"8:01 p.m. This is not coming from my main source.... "so is this source?

@hockeyfan0012,
No you are not wrong.

Staff has been "tinkering" with the thingee.
Right Charlie??

Jo L Cash said...

Oh, dfw03, how can espn worry about hockey when it is a serious sports channel that dedicates time to things like Favre's text messages?

jefe penguino said...

@hockeyfan0012 -youre s-m-a-r-t-e. maybe you should have a few beers like the staff so you wont notice such insignificant details.

how 'bout dat 'burgh n'at? said...

"Fuckin right boys" at 1:29.
