Dark Knight comes out in a day.
That is all that matters right now.

The NHL refuses to confirm when the schedule is coming out.
So Whatev.

In other news,well just celebrate free candy.



[Thanks to Kelli K for that]

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



Ray Shero signs a few more depth players. Ryan Stone, Bill Thomas, and yes, Kris Beach.
Nothing to get too excited about, though if this was Montreal, they'd probably riot in the streets.

25 year-old Thomas is a Pittsburgh native and has played parts of 3 NHL seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes.



DALLAS DRAKE RETIRES
No one cares.



:: What would drive a respected but over the hill hockey player to resign with the Washington Capitals for another tour of mediocrity. Well, in the words of the Wu Tang Clan, dolla dolla bill y'all.
More specifically, not having enough of them. [ The World of Isaac ] says Sergei Federov recently defaulted on two loans from a Michigan bank worth a total of $2.25 million.

Only $2.25 milllion? Boots Del Biaggio laughs at such a meager debt. He's run up bigger bills throwing together Powerpoint presentations.
Hat tip [ Puck Daddy's ] way.

All Star break.
Works hard. Vacations harder.

Game #23

[Interesting. PENS WIN.]

5 - 0
Chris Thorburn forgets he is playing for ATL now.
He takes a dumb penalty.
The new-look powerplay jaunts out.
Gonchar to Sid.


4-0

"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."

debrisslide said...

I'm going to take one more shot at shutting down Joose's Tetris reign before bed, but I really do need to get to bed.

According to the cblogger map by sh0ez, I am the southernmost cblogger in Pennsylvania. Lonelyblog.

Celebrating Free Candy in my dreams tonight. Woooo. And hopefully getting up before noon. DAYUM.

jefe penguino said...

PittHockey said...

shawnawwwesome said...

The bat, man?

The way Charlie is holding that bat, that bobblehead is not appropriate for children.

shawnawwwesome said...

PS. I had a dream that we were lost somewhere in the middle of Pennsylvania, and then I saw a sign that said "cblog," and I knew exactly where I was.

I think I may read this too much. haha

fleuryous said...

OH, forgot...

FREECANDYYYYYYYYYY.

Stilly said...

Dan said...

P.O. said...

dan

Dan said...

p.o. - actually i think it's something on their end. i hit refresh and one new picture worked, the rest that weren't still didn't.

penstone410 said...

@sh0ez and eileen

HockeyFan7187 said...

Hello everyone.

P.O. said...

hockeyfan

Michael said...

Saw an early showing of The Dark Knight last night. It. Was. AWESOME!

Heath Ledger was marvelous as The Joker, may he rest in peace.

Why so serious?

Dan said...

The NHL Network is on channel 276 in my area.

P.O. said...

Victor Raison said...

This might already have been covered, but are there any measures in place to prevent Dark Knight spoilers on cblog?

HockeyFan7187 said...

yes p.o it is.

P.O. said...

FLAMES TO FACE COYOTES IN PRE-SEASON GAME IN WINNIPEG

The Calgary Flames will play a pre-season game in Winnipeg in September.

The Flames announced their seven game pre-season schedule on Tuesday and their second contest will be against the Phoenix Coyotes at the MTS Centre.

The game will take place on September 24.

The Coyotes, originally the Jets, moved from Winnipeg to Phoenix after the 1996 season.

penstone410 said...

and only four comments in on the puck daddy free candy post, and some detroit jobber is already doing their thing.. VOMIT

Dan said...

when jobbed, job back. see you there.

Victor Raison said...

Pensblog got some solid face time for finding the site about Malkins restaurant too.

somechic said...

WOOOO
face time all over the place haha

penstone410 said...

..thats why pensblog is a BEAST!

and malkins restaurant still cracks me the fuck up! im supposed to go to russia next may, and a jail-themed restaurant definitely needs added to the itinerary..

Lady Jaye said...

@sh0ez > I'm starting to wonder if you're really the Joker or becoming the Joker. Your images are started to become oh so sinister.

@penstone > My neighbor mows his lawn at like 9PM at night when I'm trying to get the kids to go to sleep. I have one that's out at like 6AM. I want to throw things at people.

And you have to take pictures for us if you go to the restaurant. That just cracks me up every time it's mentioned.

@Pensblog Map > Yay! I'm on the map. Although you could get really stalkerblog and put us in by zip code since I don't really live downtown by the convention center. I'm not homeless yet. :)

ARG I don't wanna work... off to go set up a customer meeting cause nobody can figure out how to use online conferencing tools.

P.O. said...

if things stay this slow around here i migh have to start reading mondesishouse again

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Hey, everyone ... like I predicted my dream was really weird from the Candyman song ... I was walking through my school and the music started playing. Suddenly, it started pouring candy, and Free Candy himself checked Lindros before taking my arm. We then proceeded to run down the halls grabbing handfuls of candy, eating them, and throwing them in the air. Bugsy took my other arm and did the same. So weird but kinda nice.

Where do I post my address for C-Blog map?

Stilly said...

@IHK

Some has been slipping you acid before bed.

Was Bugsy in his Tampa jersey when he took your arm?

wooooooo

penstone410 said...

IHK
thats some dream there! i'd say send sh0ez a msg on fbook with your address so he can add you to cblog map..

TheNWChica said...

Dewman is a friend of Erik's I think.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Stilly: This isn't even the oddest dream I had ...

And no he wasn't wearing a shirt and Free Candy was shirtless as well *sticks out tongue* But he was wearing his old-school hockey suspenders *sighs* and a Pens hat ...

@penstone: Because FB still hates me ... this is my response to your messages ...

Hahaha ... when I got up yesterday, I saw that ... I always read the posts I didn't see when I go to bed. Hope you feel better, though ...

I'll let you join the campaign ... the Fandangler wants me to run for pres. when I'm not old enough *laughs* Glad you liked my version of the rant. It was pretty funny making it ... I looked the rant up on youtube and just paused it so I could type and see his expressions.

I love the Avatar ... Prince Zuko is my favorite character ...

Dan said...

p.o. - mondesi's house is worse than this. talk about an abandoned project......

Flyer Hater said...

The use of "Free Candy" is really starting to get old.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Anyone want to discuss anything? I already got my business ads for the day, so I won't be doing anything for a while ...

I wish I had one of the lanyards right now for some reason ...

Why must my best friends be away in Pittsburgh? So bored ...

mattb171 said...

@brndlynn

Thanks! Photoshops are good for the mind, body, and spirit...and the Pens Blog.

debrisslide said...

I wish I had a lanyard, too, ihk. Even though it never works out that I make it to cblog gatherings. :(

Going to run Eat 'n Parkblog now. . .woooohoooo.

P.O. said...

lanyards? we dont need no stinkin lanyards

SK said...

that free candy video is BEAST

ps. BEAST

penstone410 said...

IHK
zuko is my favorite too! woo!
i'm here for a while, talk to me! im at paneras with my mom and aunt while theyre doing important stuff.. i just came for the lunch, and am very glad i brought my laptop cause im boooored

and the lanyards are kickass people
(still waiting to get mine and will wear it everywhere when i do!)

and FH
if you are sick of free candy already, you will be throwing rocks at yourself pretty soon, cause its not going aaanywhere

P.O. said...

penstone

which panera are you at?

im pretty sure ive been to every panera in a 4 county radius

Dan said...

the use of milano is starting to get old

TheNWChica said...

Wait...can we get lanyards if we were not at Wingblog? If so, I would love to have one please.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I'm assuming C-Blog doesn't fall under the morning people category (not that I do ...)

I might fall asleep in front of the computer soon ... I'm so tired ...

@penstone: Yeah! Ha, Zuko = Beast.

Apparently Bettman wants to cheapen the experience of the Classic

penstone410 said...

po
im pretty sure i have too! i practically live at panera, love the free wifi! im in penn center panera today..

thenwchica
i got one because i was signed up to go and then like the day before i found out my dad scheduled me to work and couldnt get out of it, so since it was already made, i got one..

M. Vanderlasser said...

You know those MS150 bike rides?

Does the "MS" stand for "Midget Sex"?

TheNWChica said...

@penstone: Ahhhhh! Foiled again by geographyblog! lol

wilsmith said...

I think I'm gonna go with flyer hater on this one.

be careful with overuse.

Stilly said...

FH is just being a jobber. Maybe he needs some FREE CANDY... and by FREE CANDY I mean to be molested by a pedophile in a shady van.

Carroll said...

@ihk- one of your clients?

i want the free candy that sampson is passing out

Strato said...

Free Candy Trumps Milano...

...She's overrated.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@carroll: I can't read the article ... it just takes me to the MSN music homepage ...

Anyone want to write an AP English essay about the falsehood of the American Dream using text examples from "Death of a Salesman," "The Jungle," and "The Awakening?" *laughs*

Barenaked Ladies singer arrested on drug charges

July 16, 2008, 5:13 AM EST

The singer and guitarist for the band Barenaked Ladies has been arrested on drug charges in upstate New York.

Police say Steven Page was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on Friday in the Syracuse area.

Authorities say the arrest occurred at about 2 a.m. after police noticed a suspicious car with its driver's side door left open. They say they found Page and two women in a nearby apartment, along with cocaine and marijuana.

Barenaked Ladies' manager Terry McBride confirmed the charge to the Post-Standard of Syracuse but declined to comment further. The singer, released after paying $10,000 bail, is due in court Thursday.

Page helped form the band in 1988. The group, know for hits such as "One Week" and "Pinch Me" recently released their debut kids CD "Snacktime."

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@carroll: Uhh ... *picks up cell phone* I have no idea what you are talking about *curses to self and dials a phone number* I hope another drug wasn't mentioned ... how am I supposed to make money for yearbook? He better not have ratted me out ... I'm Italian and have connections ... it won't end with me in jail. *laughs*

Andy Dick jailed in SoCal on drug, sex allegations

July 16, 2008, 11:39 AM EST

Comedian Andy Dick has been arrested in California for investigation of drug use and sexual battery.

The Sheriff's Department says Dick, 42, was arrested shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday in the parking lot near the Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar in Murrieta. Details were not released.

The former co-star of the TV sitcom "NewsRadio" is being held on $5,000 bail.

In 1999, Dick was arrested for possession of cocaine and marijuana after driving his car into a telephone pole in Hollywood.

Last year, he was cited in Columbus, Ohio, for urinating in public.

looks like steven page got a hold of some of Sampson's free candy

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Carroll said...

Andy Dick is known for his drug use rather then being a "celebrity"...good thing you don't take his calls.

I'm thinking you could raise alot of money for your yearbook if you didn't mind helping them out. :)

I'm really bored, obviously!

Joose said...

So, I still need people to go to the 12:05AM regular showing of The Dark Knight with me at the Mills while the other Cbloggers go to the IMAX showing.

Please. I'm cute and funny, so it's a no-lose situation. It's going to sell out fast if it hasn't already.

M. Vanderlasser said...

@ihk, you should videotape Andy Dick for a week; that would give you all the source material you need for a world-class paper about the falsehood of the American Dream.

P.O. said...

joose


what night is the movie?

Stilly said...

Sorry Joose. If you wanna come to Harrisburg and watch it, i'd be happy to accompany you.

penstone410 said...

fact: andy dick grew up in monroeville, and lived in the house where my friend lives now..

joose
i want to go, and would love to join you but my parents took my credit card away so i have no way of buying them.. im trying to see if they will buy me a ticket but so far, no dice..

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@m. vanderlasser: *laughs* It's due the 18th so I don't have a week ... and I wouldn't want to video-tape him ... he's really weird and creepy ... I don't want to know what he does ...

sh0ez said...

@ p.o., ihk, original nathan: You have been added to the map!

@ penstone: You were missed last night!

@ lady_jaye: Maybe I am the joker . . .

@ chubs: Who are you? Are you coming tomorrow with us?

@ ihk, thenwchicha, debrisslide: I can make up the designs for you gals and see if Stephen wants to send them.

P.O. said...

shoez

nice work

if you look at that thing on google earth its pretty freaky

Fatty said...

shoez

chubs is in erie, so i doubt he's coming down here for the showing.

Joose said...

p.o.

Thursday night we are all going.

sh0ez said...

@ fatty: Never know. We've had people come from a good ways just for Wingblog.

TheNWChica said...

@sh0ez: If you don't mind I would love one and I'll even send money for postage. Doesn't have to be the Wingblog one...just with Dickie would be lovely.

P.O. said...

oh that sucks... midnight movie on thursady night doesnt mesh well with friday morning wake up for work at 630am

HA!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@sh0ez: Don't worry about it ... I just thought it was cool ...

Also has anyone seen Andy Dick's mug shot? Creeper doesn't begin to describe it ... and he touched a 17 yr. old girl ... I'm glad I didn't answer my phone ... sighofreliefblog.

P.O. said...

looking at the map it appears i am the only one not afraid of stalkerblog and emailed my actual address... location on the map is actually 4 houses away from mine, but im not telling you stalkers which one!

Gary Roberts knows which house is yours.

And he told Free Candy.

can anyone confirm/deny?

P.O. said...

dr turk

by the look of your blue flag you are right by boston market and about 2 min from my office... ill swing by for a boston chicken carver sandwich combo some night

Julia said...

Does anyone else get those 4366 text updates (i think that's the number or at least close to it).. anyways they were talking about that Orpik video on it

eileenover said...

By the way Laynie, you're not the only one feeling sick.

sh0ez said...

@ p.o.: I typed in your address and it showed me a picture of your house (I assume so at least.) I moved the marker a little bit. Ha ha.

Also, Joose is talking about the regular showing, p.o. She needs someone to go to that one with her. It isn't sold out yet. I have work the next morning at 7! Who cares! Come!

eileenover said...

Oh and if you're not on the map or were put in the downtown area, it's because your Facebook doesn't specify what part of Pittsburgh you live in.

Joose said...

I have a cold, too.

I also have Papilledema.

P.O. said...

shoez

wish i could man but i just cant do it... i play pick up hoops thursday nights and then i have meetings from 9-11am that friday morning and ill want to kill myself during them if i did go... if the movie ended at 2am i wouldnt get home till about 3am... just not enough time... im going to try to check out the IMAX with a few buddies on Sunday evening but you will have to post on friday how it was (anything short of "sick" or "unreal" will be a disappointment)

penstone410 said...

eileen
being sick in july is reeeedic.. though paneras chicken soup is working wonders, im on my 2nd bowl!

sh0ez
glad i was missed, did you add me to the map yet??!??!

Carroll said...

Hey Shoez, you almost put the dot exactly where I live. Only 7 blocks off...not bad. Are you stalking me by my ip address?

Dr T - what's wrong with living a few feet away from a Starbucks? About a 30 sec walk and about a 1 minute walk to Second cup. Tims is like a 10 minute walk.

TheNWChica said...

@penstone: I was sick last week with stomach flu. Viruses know no season!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: The brown spot is from all the vomit Norwin players have tossed because they are sick of being losers to Penn Trafford.

Are you kidding me? I could beat the entire PT football team ...

Here, I can give scores, too ... Volleyball:
PT 3 Norwin 0 ...

Besides, I think it's cute that Norwin has the same colors of Pitt ... wait, didn't you go to WVU?

eileenover said...

Well I feel a lot better now. Tums are amazing. All of those commercials that say Tums don't work can fuck off.

penstone410 said...

@thenwchica
ahhh i may have a stomach flu, i hope its just a tummyache but its been two days now.. and i think all viruses should be banned in the summer! its just not fair!

@IHK
i am slightly unapathetic of your football team.. but then again i am from gateway, and we kick major ass, as long as we are not playing the plague that is central catholic..
also i kicked a girl from penn trafford in the face back when i played soccer.. oops

TheFandangler said...

Tum.. tum tum tum...tum tum tum tum...TUMMMMMM!!!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@penstone: I don't like the PT football team, either. I'm friends with most of the players so I job them for sucking. I remember when we had our bomb-threat and had to stand on the football field; the one kid in my 1st pd. class (German) was standing beside me, and I turn and say "Is this the first time you have actually been on the field, Mike?"

Watch out I have had a lot of soccer friends over the years, they are crazy ...

sh0ez said...

@ p.o.: It's cool. Join us soon!

@ penstone: Nope. You only list Pittsburgh. Ha ha.

@ Carroll: I right click on Ottawa from a far out zoom and clicked add. That's seriously all I did. Ha ha. That's amazing it ended up being so close!

Carroll said...

penstone - maybe it's your body rebelling against you. Your inner sleep clock vs cblog hours. hmmm..

I know that happen to me when I didn't sleep the week the Pens were here kicking ass in April!

Am I weird, I would rather be sick in the summer then in our winters. I mean I still have to work and it's easier to get up and out in nice weather then during a major snowstorm, especially when you feel like shit.(+40 vs -40, sorry don't know what your equivalent is)

Korn said...

I'm going to echo Flyer Hater and Wilsmith, too many things on here (and I'm only including c-blog in this) are being beaten into the ground. Or forced. Nicknames should happen naturally people.

I've been reading here daily and commenting occasionally for a long time and the quality of conversation has declined dramatically. Makes me long for the days of c-blog brawls with he who shall remain nameless. Maybe it's time to set up separate Hockey Related and non-Hockey related c-blogs?

penstone410 said...

@sh0ez
well, mister, if you bothered to read my earlier posts you would have seen that i told you!

penstone410 said...
@sh0ez and eileen

The Pensblog Cblog Google Map v2.0:

New features:
- More people added! I did some more Facebook stalking!
- Added the 10 nearby (and somewhat nearby) hockey teams!

What I need:
- Those shown in Pittsburgh to update with more specifics.
- Those listed with JUST a Real Name and no cblog name need to give me their cblog name because I have added you on Facebook but have yet to realize your Cblog name.

Sorry, Laynie. I missed it. But you're there now!

@carroll
HAHA! if i could blame this on cblog i would, but it would only feed into my mom's complaints that i spend too much time here.. and its definitely not my sleep schedule, i have had screwed up sleep patterns since i was little..

@IHK
hahaha jobbing the football team is fun! the only one on our team i consistently jobbed was our kicker- he was like my little brother, he was tiny, and jewish (whos ever heard of a jew playing football? not to feed into stereotypes or anything..)

and i think i can hold my own to the soccer players.. my junior year, i was kicked out of 4 games for "unsportsmanlike conduct" HAHA

sh0ez said...

Ha ha. I don't blame you Carroll.

penstone410 said...

@sh0ez
THANKS!! =)
proud to be situated right between our crapshoot mall and the lovely primantis!

sh0ez said...

@ penstone: I can't blame my sleeping problems on cblog. In fact, if I didn't have sleeping problems, cblog may not know me! Hah.

I have had sleeping problems my whole life. My mom would get so mad when I was like 8 and couldn't go to sleep for school. I would cry my ass off wondering why I couldn't sleep while my Mom laid in bed with me til 3AM every night trying to help.

Are you going by hometown addresses or current addresses? I'll have to double check, but I believe I was listed under Erie.

Can I email you my current address?


@ Penstone410 -

I'm going to be running feellikecrapblog is approx. three weeks or so. August always becomes Allergy Hell for me, usually the worst right in the middle of the month which, of course, coincides with my birthday.


@ Dan -

I have to wait to see that ad until I get home, but Zach Galifianakis is funnier than all hell. "Out Cold" is one of my absolute favorite movies ever.

@sh0ez
that was me too when i was little! i would get so upset cause i would try sooo hard to sleep and just couldnt.. i would be up all night and then would fall asleep in class (i still do that now, but cmon its college, what do you expect?!)
i do have sleeping medication, but i dont take it cause i dont trust it.. so i just deal with it as best as i can

sh0ez said...

@ stoosh: Me and Eileen were arguing about where you lived. She said no to Erie and I could have swore you said about going back to Erie and such. I dunno. Ha ha. I was obviously wrong! You can e-mail me it!

We went by hometown (unless we knew for sure it wasn't their town) only if they didn't have a current address listed.

sh0ez said...

@ penstone: Thing is, I don't feel it during the day. I don't get tired during the day. I live off of little sleep. I don't nap, either. I SHOULD take medication, but I never take medication unless it's going to keep me alive. I won't even take aspirin or whatnot. Ugh.

@ Shoez -

I was born and grew up in Erie, but I now grace the land of Aliquippa with my existence. I'll email you the address.

So who wants to come save me from my job tonight?

I sense the beginnings of a Pensblog Fight Club coming on.

@carroll
NICE! thats my girl! thats what i got in trouble for- i broke a girl's ankle cause she was being a bitch! i first tripped her and then kicked her in the back, so she tried to get me back, missed, and i ran over her ankle.. like you said, she was asking for it!

@stoosh
yeah i get real bad allergies too but mine are always the worst in april-may so the worst is past me.. sucks you are usually sick for your birthday!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@penstone: Ha!

I didn't do a lot of sports as a child because my family had to deal with my older brother's baseball deal (Which made the baseball fields a 2nd home to me) and my younger brother's autism. I did have confrontations regardless ... like the time I threw a rock at a kid who made fun of my brother. He had to get stitches but I didn't tell my mom about it. Or all the beatings my cousins, their friends, and my older brother received ... I was a fighter as a child and still am.

TheFandangler said...

Eileen... that depends on where and when...

Butler TJ Maxx. Seriously, I might end up strangling one of the customers.

sh0ez said...

Stoosh, I moved you to Alquippa in general right now.

penstone410 said...

@eileen
where you working?!

@sh0ez
aw see youre lucky then, cause once the not sleeping catches up with me, i'm out. i take tons of naps though (but again, thats the college student in me..)

@IHK
me too, i have always been a fighter, especially when playing soccer, i was naaasty! ive racked up so many "unsportsmanlike conducts" and red cards, i feel like a soccer equivalent of BGL sometimes haha

sh0ez said...

Oh and the Winter Classic for next season was confirmed for Wrigley CHI/DET.

Flyer Hater said...

I wonder how willing everyone will be to use Free Candy when Free Candy is playing 4th line LW in February again.

penstone410 said...

wrigley = poop for hockey games

TheFandangler said...

Oh that's right... you live in Evans City. I know a lot of people there for some reason. I don't know where TJ maxxxxxxx is. I'll wear a shirt that says please don't strangle me.

sh0ez said...

@ penstone: I'll assume that over my life, I probably average less than five hours of sleep per day/night (I mean ALL day included). If you go by the past few years, I'd say under 4.

penstone410 said...

@sh0ez
wow that amazes me, my college roommate is like that too! she has major insomnia like me, but she doesn't need to catch up on the sleep. she can take a nap for a few hours and be up for the next 24.. its crazy

eileenover said...

I wish someone on here lived near me.

sh0ez said...

Yeahhhhh. It sucks, though. When I actually wanna sleep, I can't.

sh0ez said...

@ eileen: Me, too.

penstone410 said...

@eileen and sh0ez
me three!
most people have never even heard of monroeville..

TheFandangler said...

No one is really close to me on the map either...

Eileen: I use to be in Evans City a lot for family and friends. My brothers kind of girlfriend lives out there as well. It never seems to take that long. Right up 79.

lis said...

Korn,

Don't you know you cannot post your opinion if it's the against the "normal" opinion of cblog or you are dumb?

I agree that it's July and all and there's not much hockey related news but the I gotta agree with the forced conversations happening just to keep the comments between the 300 and 700 mark.

Instead of complaining about how dead cblog is, how about going outside into the world and doing something fun or fruitful and then coming back to cblog to discuss it and striking up some meaningful conversation?

And Flyer Hater,

I've watched Brooks Orpik play hockey since his first year in Wilkes-Barre and I've never been so tired of him than I have in this one month alone!

eileenover said...

Well I'm off. Someone say a prayer.

TheFandangler said...

You got it...

sh0ez said...

I think I'm going to go shower and go to Subway. I'm hungry. I'll be back in about an hour!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I'll still be calling Ryan Malone my favorite player even in TB, so I'll stick to Free Candy ... if it's bugging yinz to much, I'll call him Orrpik or Brooksie like I used to ... don't want an argument to break out over a nickname ...

I have to take notes on "The Jungle" or I'm never going to pass my AP class ... I'll talk to yinz later ... (meaning I'm cramming and might pull a 48 hour stay up stint depending on how much I read and write)

penstone410 said...

@lis, korn, FH, etc
i understand that you get annoyed at the various conversations and the overuse of phrases/names.. but i said it before and ill say it again, if you are sick of Free Candy and the conversations now, come fall/when the season starts, i can bet the comments will be at a rediculous amount. so, you may want to start getting used to it.. it seems that even when cblog is "dead" we still get, like you said, 300-700 comments. just imagine what it'll be like when something actually happens..

penstone410 said...

..not trying to start any fights, just pointing that out..

Brett said...

@penstone410,

They've never heard of monroeville? where I come from, monroeville is a big city.

At least, where I used to be from. Since moving from the Pittsburgh area, though, I pretty much tell people I live in New York City, even though that's a slight exaggeration.

lis said...

penstone,

It just seems that people are confusing cblog for chatroomblog. There's a difference between having conversations on here with other people and making a point to let everyone know that "I'm running to the kitchen for a beer" or "I'm going to do this right now and I'll be back in 5 minutes".

Some people just don't care what every single person who comments on here are doing EVERY SECOND of the day.

And my point about the amount of comments is this: If there is 300 comments of good quality conversation going on, I think that's great! If 300 of the 700 comments on here are people saying "first", "turn the page", and "Free Candy", then I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one on here that believes the quality of posts as well as cblog on the whole goes down.

And I know what the next reply is: "Well if you don't like, then just skip over it or leave", but then someone will need to explain to me how exactly I skip over "X" amount of comments but yet still be able to pick out the quality posts on here.

penstone410 said...

@brett
really? where are you (formerly) from? that is SO refreshing, im telling you, majority of the people from pittsburgh/surrounding suburbs tell me they have no idea where it is when they ask where im from.. i just say "you know the squirrel hill tunnel?".."go through it and drive a little" haha
and i was always told that if you live anywhere in southwestern new york, you are from new york city, so its all good!

jefe penguino said...

according to the map, the closest person to me is Kat.. in california. (pens southwest road trip lets hope!)

at least you guys can meet up for fillintheblankblog v#.0 once in awhile.


@lis -im not saying im innocent, but cant argue with you there.

penstone410 said...

@lis
i am sure you are not alone.. and i know i have days where i get upset with how many comments there are, and it takes me longer to catch up than to actually read a post. i believe that right now, the quality of comments is down because it is the offseason so there isnt much else to talk about. i would hope that by the time games are going on, people will be more inclined to talk about what we came here for, and at a much higher quality..
and like jefe said, i cant say im innocent of it either, but am totally agreed that you have a valid point.

jefe penguino said...

"first"

"turn the page"

and "Free Candy"

oh my!

penstone410 said...

@ jefe
im down for a southwest roadtrip.. only if i can get some in-n-out burger!!

*hold on while I scratch myself...

Victor Raison said...

...ok, I'm back*


...a good point. Sometimes there is a lot of filler on here.

Dr. Turkleton said...

lis...or Mrs. Flyer Hater / Kenny Melvin [just kidding!]

I know you're an old-timer on here..and I see your point. Especially, when you compare it to cblog from 07.16.2007

18 comments from 1:55a until midnight!


I'm guessing that the hockey talk starts going back to 80-90% of the posts towards the later stages of September.

sh0ez said...

For me, cblog has become a second family. It's not that these conversations just happen online, they happen when we meet up. We just bring them here. We are all very far apart. There is no chatroom for us. This is what we have. I'm sick of the friends I have here at school and at home. It's all over dramatic bullshit. Meeting the cbloggers has made me raise my standards of friends and allow me to actually enjoy the company of some people. Why is it that you care so much? It's almost troll-like. You're telling us to go out and do something while you are here telling us that. It doesn't make any sense.

I go to work, come home and relax by talking and reading Cblog. The girl (HAH! had to!) comes over and then I'm gone 'til later in the night. I have trouble sleeping, so I read and talk here until I fall asleep. What's so wrong with that? It's the damn internet. Stop taking it so seriously. We have all formed quite a group of friends and I'll be damned if some people who are gonna be dicks are gonna ruin it.

People piss me off. Society is such a piece of shit.

sh0ez said...

I know there is filler. It's hard to catch up. It's mostly all filler in the numerous comment posts. Therefore, you truly have nothing to catch up on. If it's important, I hear about it. Somewhere.

sh0ez said...

THEY OPEN THE PRE-SEASON AGAINST TAMPA!?

sh0ez said...

September 20th. Tampa Bay @ Pittsburgh. Mellon Arena.

WE NEED A CBLOG GET TOGETHER FOR THIS!

jefe penguino said...

@penstone -i was at in-n-out burger once. it was fantastic though. there arent any that close to me.

scheduleblog

two tampa bay preseasons. nice.

and yeah i thought i heard that the pens will play detriot twice this year. watch your back hossa!

and it also says they will play san jose twice! which means southwest roadtrip?! pens bring your dads again!

wooooooooooooooooo!

lis said...

Penstone,

I actually believe it's been down since before the season was over.

It seemed to me that people were just posting the smallest thing in order to beat the previous amount of comments from the last post. For example, if we got to around 370 comments then there were 30 or so comments of people just posting random stuff just so we can "turn the page" one more time before the next post.

Even in the offseason, I understand that there's no hockey to talk about but that doesn't necessarily mean the quality of posts has to go down. It just means we can switch to other topics...the ones we don't get to talk about during the season because we were too busy talking about hockey. Last summer was musicblog for example.

jefe penguino said...

@lis - wake up, the preseason schedule was just announced and we are talking about it. where are you?! hahaa.

lis said...

well whatever, I voice my opinion and now that makes me a dick and troll-like!

Victor Raison said...

We should probably ask Al Gore what the best use of his Internets is.

somechic said...

look at all this filler about stuff should and should not be posted on cblog. What wasted space!
j/k

penstone410 said...

TAMPA BAY FIRST GAME?!! hoooolyshit
cblog MUST go take over!!!

@jefe
i went when i was in california for the first time in april. i was there for 4 days and had in-n-out every day, ive never tasted fast food that amazing before!

@lis
that is true, there is a lot of filler, but i know that there are many conversations i have had with people about other things too.. but then again, when we got into soccerblog for example, people got all pissy, so its kind of lose-lose either way..

sh0ez said...

I freak out at times. I took it as a personal attack on a group of people just talking and having fun. Sorry for the name-calling.

Meh.

I'm going to go eat. I'll be back late tonight or something. I don't know.

Mapblog:
e-mail me at mikeshoey@gmail.com if you want added, need me to update your location, or want me to add a new feature.


Later.

sh0ez said...

Final note: The Pens are playing one of the Finnish teams, Jokerit, on Oct. 2nd. Solid.

P.O. said...

lis

looks like your comments made some type of an impact... usually around the 190 comment mark you would start to see the word "TURN" from 5-9 different people and then comments 200-213 would be whoever didnt TURN THE PAGE complaining about not getting to do it... i didnt agree about the FREE CANDY thing or about people killing time in their day by using this as a communication forum (i know i do at times)... but i am with you on the TURN stuff

P.O. said...

Penguins generral manager Ray Shero today announced the team will play their home opener on Saturday, Oct. 11 against the New Jersey Devils at Mellon Arena. Game time is 7:30 p.m. The complete regular season schedule will be announced tomorrow.


from the Post-Gazette

jefe penguino said...

the last time the pens came to phoenix was a 7-2 blowout. with a crosby highlight reel goal. it was awesome. i dont remember any of it.

anyone gonna take the next 6 comments to turn the page?

TheFandangler said...

I don't care about the turn thing...

When it comes to talking, I say type whatever you want. This is a chat forum... nowhere does it say hockey talk. It's pensblog fans chatting with other fans. If you have a problem with that leave. If you want strictly hockey talk you won't find it here... especially in July. If you pay attention we are always scrounging to find something worth while talking about in the hockey world.

Erik said...

@sh0ez

Don't fret my friend. You're only bitter because half the things you just said aren't true. Your imaginary girlfriend probably reminds you of Cindy.

It's okay though, we forgive you. You're just another c-blog-loser, hence why you fit in so well.
