Winter In The Sun 58

[Phantom of the RBC Center. PENS LOSE.]

4 - 2

Can we blame the refs?

Can we blame Kris Beech?

Can we blame Michel Ouellet?
Unfortunately, no.

The Penguins are 6 points ahead of the 8th playoff spot.
It could be worse.

GL laid out Rod the Bod on the first shift of the game.
Body By Jake flew in to make out with him, but no dice.

He was gone for the game.

It was all Canes, all the time off the bat.
They were buzzing all around the Pens zone, which eventually forced Jordan Staal to head to the box.

Man, Jordan Staal has been taking a lot of penalties.
About half a second later, it was 1-0 Canes.


Brooks Orpik broke Erik Cole's life a couple years ago.
In the building where he has been relentlessly booed, he scores his first goal since that 4-3 overtime thriller he won as a sperm for the right to enter the egg. 1-0.

Brooks Orrpik is there when it counts.

The Pens head back into the Canes zone after the Staal stop.
Malkin jobs one to the net. Goal.


Right after that, the Canes came down and hit the post.
Myocardial infarction.
And then Jeff Taffe tries to cut across the slot, but Joey Mormina (who?) decides to give him a flying elbow drop to the chops.
Taffe gets his nose broken on the play, which makes you think of only one thing.

Fabio getting hit by that bird.

A broken nose shouldn't hurt Taffe's ice time, since he never smells the net anyway.

A garbage call on Rob Scuderi came next.
Scuderi probably blocked a shot from the penalty box.

The Hurricanes came with it on that ensuing power play, but they couldn't finish.
Just like Acid Queen when she says she's gonna go on a diet.

That cake is done

Fortunately for the Pens, that Sabu penalty was killed faster than Natalee Holloway.

First rule of Life Club:
Don't do drugs and drink in a foreign country with dudes you don't know.

t wasn't looking good when Talbot was called for some phantom interference call.
You knew what was coming. 3-2.

Bad news bears.

Malkin's line starts getting Lecavalier minutes.
They don't score, which didn't bode well.

The Pens had to start pressing in the offensive zone to get some business going, and the Canes capitalized by flying down the other end.
Master Bayda puts one home off the post. 4-2.

the acid queen wars. glorious.

brndlynn said...

the infamous Holloway joke. Ive been waiting for this one. hey - the truth hurts!

PittHockey said...

There's no backlash for pointing out a stupid media obsession.

Dan said...

uh oh it's the holloway post....... still classier than michael jackson at a children's hospital

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I remember tons of people flipping out over the Holloway comment ...

Acid Queen's still in the blog roll ... I bet she's still angry about that *laughs*

Predsboy18 said...

I have no prob with the Holloway "joke." Those who WERE offended watched WAAAAAAY too much CNN, and didn't know what really happened. It's like the whole thing of not leaving a drink unattended in a bar, you kind of have to expect something bad is going to happen.

stop by FOSTER PLAZA BUILDING #3 for a United Way Fundraiser Car Wash

My company is putting on a car wash to help support the United Way until 4pm today. We ask for a minimum contribution of $5 but gladly accept well over that. All proceeds benefit the United Way. Stop by and get a car wash for a great cause.

shawnawwwesome said...

That is the greatest apology ever.

Dan said...

do it for the grand kids!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Sh0ez: Nice find on Caputi ...

Rage said...

that was the 1st game I really saw how absolutely nuts TK truly is

Max Power said...

not cool dan

Dan said...

at least the link wasn't about shit

DrunkArmyFan said...

Long time reader, first time c-blogger.

Awesome guest post on Going Five Hole this morning. The picture of Gretzky covered in Nintendo parts had me cracking up.

As far as Holloway goes, people need to lighten up and stop taking themselves so seriously.

sh0ez said...

Caputi article again.

Thanks, IHK. Thought it was a good find.

Dan said...

if that was a batman begins reference, welcome to the gang. have a drink of the kool aid.

Flyer Hater said...

People who were offended by the Holloway picture shouldn't be allowed back on the internet.

DrunkArmyFan said...

It wasn't meant to be, but really... why so serious?

Max Power said...

eldersex = gross

The HIV is up 19% in people 65 and over.

STD's are up 300% in the same age group. Elderclap, eeeeeeeeewwwwwwww.

Dan said...

if you've never seen this, you have to watch it.

shawnawwwesome said...

And that is why you don't let Mikey Phelps do your sportscast.

P.S. Natalie Holloway was a national treasure... somehow.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

What's with the Phelps hate lately, people?

This is pretty odd ... somehow I can imagine Pierre McGuire saying this and not covering it up ...

brndlynn said...

that was painful to watch dan. i love how his ears flamed red every time he would screw something up not his face. he must have had a ton of makeup on.

Dan said...

i cried from laughing at that. boom goes the dynamite! and to think he got a real job in waco............

demondg1 said...

Just finished my entry in the Curtis Sanford Mask contest.

shawnawwwesome said...

I simply will not be outdone on that Sanford mask contest... Unfortunately, it cannot be contained in their stupid template.

threshhold9k said...

Meh...Holloway had it coming for behaving like an idiot.
There are more terrible things that happen everyday but for some reason the media loves white blonde whores. Shocking.

J.S. said...

I forgot to save my mask and send it in. Hopefully the contest isn't finished. I still have the right side though.

right side

M. Vanderlasser said...

@dan, "the canary in the mineshaft" - what an interesting phrase to use in an article about geriatric sexuality.

J.S. said...

Dakingjoe, Jonny Roy, or whatever he chooses to call himself is the best Canadian rapper since Snow.


J.S. said...

OK, I take that back. He's terrible. I couldn't make it through :30 of the first song on his myspace page (Perfect Vacation) before closing his page.

jefe penguino said...

like hollowhead, i also leave my drinks unattended. and ill casually yell out, "hey ill be right back, please watch my drink as i will not be here to keep an eye on it. if any ladies happen to walk over and drop a roofie in there and murder me, ill never know!"

it has yet to happen :/

anyway, phelps looks like a distorted jim from The office.

slush said...

Anyone buying a 6 game mini-plan? We just got the letter in the mail today.

J.S. said...

much better than Johnny Roy and Snow combined

RedWings said...

"Boom goes the dynamite"

Holy crap, dan and brndlynn, I can't agree more. Hilarious and painful almost to death. I think my ears need tourniquets to stop the bleeding.

RedWings said...

Oh, and that Orrpik pic is classic.

Rage said...

dammit, now i'll have that damn jannepesonen song stuck in my head again

J.S. said...

you? I've listened to it at least 5x this afternoon.

LOL @ the pile of NA's at 1:58-2:02

TheFandangler said...

I'm holding out hope that Janne Pesonen will be a great NHL player. I hope he has that scoring touch we are always looking for. It would be nice to have a scorer that isn't afraid of contact and is a spark plug...That's my impression of him so far.

Rage said...

If he works out Ray Shero may be up for sainthood

@js: watch the flying weenies at 3:00 or so

Max Power said...

Peso will change your life. Search for his games online. You'll touch yourself over it.

Rage said...

Found this at the nanananananananana link

Phinnish Phat Beatz:

DrunkArmyFan said...

Goddamn, I wish youtube wasn't blocked at work. This day is lasting so long and now I'm jonesin for that Pesonen song.

Rage said...
