[Empty Netters] had this story yesterday.
But it bears being passed along.

It sums up why we hate Wayne Gretzky:



Thanks to [Chris A] for the heads up on this as well.

This is exactly why we are having a Wayne Gretzky Sucks Photoshop Expo.

Keep them coming.

Third times a Halliwell sister.

Some sinister force on the internets doesn't want me seeing that Gretzky vid. The plot must have taken Enzyte, because it just thickened, bigtime.

jefe penguino said...

hah, bob costas' partner said that most of the chinese are underage despite their youngest supposedly being 16 yr old. chris hansen needs to step in.

I love how the olympics roll around and people start talking about sports they know shit about as it they're fucking experts.
My classmate yesterday was talking about the outside kill ability of the USA beach volleyball team. I was like really?

Sacramone blew it, but we weren't going win anyways. China still would have had a lead after their beam and would have stuck it out.

I love the orange unis.

xuscbausp said...

for some reason, vince, i don't trust the sacramone picture.

not sure why...

P.O. said...

hip

its called repeating what you hear on TV... get used to it as hockey season rolls around... suspiciously alot of what you hear commentators say ends up being repeated in cblog

Dan said...

brandi - i sat next to you at the first senators game, and i am not kidding. i remember those gay senators scarfs

P.O. said...

dan

i saw some terrible senators scarfs too at that first playoff game... they must be as popular in ottawa as guys junk

Dan said...

i was in c, i forget the section, but there was a row of at least 8 senators homos in front of us. one looked like cruella deville. but i was looking through some pens pictures, i definitely sat next to brandi and her mom. i think i talked to her mom actually.

P.O. said...

i was in C too... at the end the pens defended twice... where my seat was it was like my legs were on either side of the goal line

Dan said...

hahaha so we were all on the same side, i think it was c 11, i had end seats of whatever row it was.

P.O. said...

we were also in end seats... my girlfriend was in the aisle seat and some joke kicked her beer over and all over the guy infront of us halfway through the third period... almost got me and the guy infront of us thrown out of the game for arguing with the ushers about their lack of response to blatant douchebaggery beer kicking

Dan said...

that i don't remember, but at that point i was screaming "rip his fucking head off gary!" at the top of my lungs

Dan said...

player ratings for the pens on nhl 09

beech better than orpik? come on?!!

P.O. said...

dont know if this has been covered here yet or not... 6 game miniplans on sale to those on the season ticket waiting list sept 4th 10am... single game tickets on sale sept 20th 10am

brndlynn said...

dan i completely remember you now. thats so weird. u have pictures?

Dan said...

i had a few on my phone, then i was browsing through yours last night and then it clicked. what a small world. i think you talked to my sister when i went on a beer run if i remember her telling me right.

Victor Raison said...

Off topic but slightly shocking:

Shelley Malil, aka "Haziz" from 40 Year Old Virgin is trying to kill people.

brndlynn said...

thats exactly right. i believe she was insulting you if i remember correctly b ut then i heard you say something tPB related so I decided u were ok. lol. small world indeed.

brndlynn said...

now that i think about it I was giving her pointers on how to avoid the kiss cam when u go to a game with a male family member. she asked me to trade seats with her when it came on.

Dan said...

HAHAHA that's it the whole kiss cam thing. we are so paranoid going to games and sitting together it's ridiculous. i'm afraid to ask what she was even saying about me. and to think i came up with tickets at the 11th hour and asked her to go.......... last time i will ever be the nice big brother.

brndlynn said...

i got my tickets @ 5pm to that game. i was shocked. i dont really remember what she said- i think it was just normal teenage girl stuff. she's a sweet girl. and i know what you mean about the kiss cam - after i laughed at her i was put on with my cousin during game 1 of the rangers series.

Dan said...

too bad i was at game 2 and missed it. i think i got my tickets around 3 maybe. that strategy worked for all of the playoffs except the finals, i wasn't please about that.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

The first column in the ratings is for Offensive Awareness (I think). Since Beech is a (crappy) forward and Orpik is a stay-at-home defenseman with limited offensive skills, it would make sense that Beech would have the higher rating in that category. There doesn't appear to be an overall rating anywhere -- suppose you'd have to key it into the game to get that one.

Hip said...

Wow, could I have had more grammatical miscues in my first post? I made Sacramone look like a 10.

p.o. - I know I know. But at least with hockey it's on every year for ~9 months. Beach volleyball? Fencing? Please. No one watches that shit in between. Give it a rest. Swimming and gymnastics I can tolerate because I actually follow them year round but no one watches a god damn archery competition unless it's on NBC right before Phelps going for gold.


Not sure if this was posted already and no time to double check:
FSN is having a special "Building an Arena" pres tonight at 6pm. Tomorrow they will have a special "Arena Groundbreaking" pres also at 6pm.
I effing did not set my tivo.

Also, had a chance to tour the Children's Place and Lemieux Family Center this morning. Just a phenomenal place for special needs childrens. I was stunned at the services they offer and the overall care they provide, and given my field, trust me, I've seen a lot of these places. Mario isn't anything special for having a foundation, there's certainly a lot of athletes that do. But there's a lot that don't and it's always nice to see how someone's reallys stepped it up and invested heavily in a community. Kudos to the Lemieux Foundation for working to build such an outstanding center.

Dan said...

ya i reread it and figured it all out after i posted it, pure laziness on my part really. me = joke

P.O. said...

i need a beer... a nice cold thick dark beer

Rage said...

@Dan- nice work!

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Hip, thanks for the info on the Lemieux center, nice to hear about stuff like that from time to time.

Comcast shit the bed last night right after the women's gymnastics. Bastards.

Alicia Sacramone is about 6000 degrees Kelvin, but she'll look that much better when she's done with the gymnastics and her neck isn't wider than her head anymore.

I'm on a gubment computer right now, so I can't see videos. I now understand Eileen's frustration.

Max Power said...

Hey I watch beach volleyball. Only the women's. Female beach volleyball players = smokin

lis said...

yeah i watch beach volleyball too. Mainly because I play in a league and I like to make myself feel like crap because I'm no where near as talented as they are! ...or in as good of shape. I like Dahlhauser...he looks like a tall, more fit version of Billy Corgan.

I agree about archery though!

Flyer Hater said...

Wow, who's the bigger dick, Kerry Fraser or Gretzky?

Max Power said...

fh that's a hard one. If you think too hard about it you might have an aneurism.

Flyer Hater said...

At least Fraser has awesome hair

But there is this

Max Power said...

A man with a plan

Max Power said...

Sometimes parties get interesting

shawnawwwesome said...

Water polo. I think they made this sport up when they tried out ice hockey as a summer event.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Flyer Hater, I almost forgot about that incident ... until you brought his name up ... my vote is Fraser. Mario is too mild-mannered to get that crazed on his own. I don't think I had seen him that mad ever ... Gretzky's a close second. But if we through Lindros in the mix, maybe Messier ... it gets harder *laughs*

lis said...

Water polo has got to be one of the most ruthless sports I've ever seen. As if the physical requirements of treading water for an hour straight aren't enough, the other team can pretty much drag you under the water and hold you there as long as they want!!!

J.S. said...

I can't see that video either. My iPod can view youtube videos separately, but if you embed one into a page, it's fail city.

It says a lot about NY that I found out about who their new coach by reading another team's blog. Wouldn't be too suprised to see their paper finally report that the wings won the cup or that maryann hossa chose to sign elsewhere. But it's good to see that an ex-jtown chief making it as a
coach in the NHL, even if it is with the Isles. IIRC, Gordon is one of the few goalies that prevented 66 from burying it on a penalty shot.

all this olympic talk......

thoughts on the 2010 hockey roster? i see a lot of potential......

jefe penguino said...

this is what the olympics are really about.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Oh Jebus, and the replays...

Ron Francis = clutch for picking off Mario before he could break his hand on Fraser's hair helmet.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

It was like a not-so-funny version of the All-Drug Olympics sketch on SNL many years ago where Phil Hartman ripped both his arms off trying to lift over 1,500 pounds after taking a bunch of different steroids and fish paralyzer.

I just looked up the episode where that came from, and it was in October 1988.
