Home Sweet home.

7:30 PM


Game should be available somewhere to hear on the Internet.
It is not available to watch, or so we think.

Check [Penguins.com] and [WXDX] for it.



:: Bing and Malkin are playing.

Satan is also expected to play. [Penguins.com]




:: For Tampa Bay, Joke Stamkos is playing.
Gary Roberts will not, his retirement home is having a bingo tourney.


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

It is now time to forget about last season.
Which means it is time to bring out our friend the Haitian from Heroes.


Go Pens

Anyone who plans on listening to a preseason hockey game on the radio really needs to evaluate where they're going in life.

Anyone who rips on someone about listening to a preseason hockey game on the radio on a blog really needs to evaluate where they're going in life.

FH, I'm a college freshman and it's Saturday night. If I'm not getting drunk I might as well be listening to preseason hockey on the radio. Hahahaha, it's funny to even type. . .

Brett said...

After 16+ hours in the office yesterday, I'm back in for round 2. Thank God the PENS are keeping me company tonight.

Annie said...

I'm wondering - is there a general area or section in the Mellon where a lot of cbloggers sit near each other? I'm cruising stubhub for tickets now and it would be cool to hang out and finally meet some of you.

KaylaJ said...

Annie said...

Woohooo for Goddard, but now I'm worried about Gonch.

nikki said...

damnit. i can't listen to the tampa one cause im not american...anyone know how i can fool the internet?

Help Me Rhonda said...

Ughhh...do I need QuickTime to play those TB links? If so, I'm straight out of luck.

debrisslide said...

At least I'm listening to the game, but I was really hoping for Mike Lange.

Kierstan said...

Whoa, Gonch left the ice? Does anyone have any details?

debrisslide said...

http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ quicktime is free, everyone, if you need it.

You can use a proxy to fool the site into thinking you are American. If you know anything about proxies that is.

So far I can't find a working proxy to catch the game up here in Nova Scotia...

jefe p said...

yeah just found that TB radio link from pensunderground. but i dont wanna hear these losers announce.

Anonymous said...

for the online radio you have to use internet explorer unless you want to install a bunch of add-ons for firefox

Help Me Rhonda said...

Thanks anon.

debrisslide said...

I'm using Firefox. . .I have no idea what you're talking about.

nikki said...

yeah...my knowledge is proxies is pretty, well, non-existent.
hopefully i can figure something out though

debrisslide said...

I keep hearing the word "turnover."

Nick said...

Why isn't it working for me? I have quicktime

jefe p said...

my firefox hates windows media player. i have to use internet explorer to stream radio.

Help Me Rhonda said...

It doesn't work on my firefox, but when I copy the link into explorer it works.

Russ Tundra said...

This guy on WDAE-AM sounds like Pensblog Charlie...

Nick said...

i think I got it *crosses fingers*

nikki said...

any word on gonch?

TheFandangler said...

This guy on Tampa radio is a dick hole...

Fags.

Kierstan said...

I'm with you there, debrisslide...too often for my liking. :P

Nick said...

who won the fight?

debrisslide said...

Yeah, these Tampa Bay announcers are shitty, but at least they don't seem to hate Sidney Crosby too much. . .

debrisslide said...

Beech - delayed penalty for hooking.

slush said...

thanks for the save anon! ill listen to the game any way I have to.

TheFandangler said...

Crosby killing penalties...

...Good sign.

Anonymous said...

why is crosby on the PK?

Cammo said...

Ok. For all non-americans, you can listen to the tampa broadcast (http://www.620wdae.com/cc-common/hdradio/) using a proxy.

In firefox, click tools, options, then select the network tab. Click settings. Select manual proxy config, and put in the proxy and port. (137.99.11.86 on port 3128 works)

Then load up the tampa radio link (included above).

After the radio popup opens, you can turn the proxy off to speed up your connection.

Any problems, ask

Russ Tundra said...

They have no personality. It's like listening to Ben Stein in ferris bueller's day off.. But not funny.

nikki said...

what about for internet explorer?
thank you sooo much by the way, im dying up here

debrisslide said...

That incessantly repeated Tampa Bay promo commercial is HILARIOUS and bad.

hey said...

i live in FL and get local tampa games and yes the announcers are obnoxious. i'm watching the sens game and missing ruutu on the pens already.

cammo said...

In IE 6.x, click Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, and then (unless you are on dial-up) click the Lan Settings button. Set it to use a proxy server and put in the same proxy IP and port.

Where is 'up here', Nikki?

Russ Tundra said...

Playoffs!?!?! = fucking annoying overplyedtampacommercialblog

nikki said...

i must be doing it wrong haha, i will keep trying though

"up here" is in british columbia

The Big K said...

The Pensblog hating on Gary Roberts?

Wow.

Btw, Staal scored the goal from Geno and Lovejoy.

Russ Tundra said...

God that would be great if the Rev. Lovejoy makes it on the big pens. but we all know that Alex is going to be up there before him.

nikki said...

shit, well i gotta go pick up my sister
i'll give this another go when i get back
thanks for all your help

Kierstan said...

I've started turning the volume down when that stupid promo commercial comes on...after about the second time I couldn't take it anymore :)

cammo said...

Ahh, other side of the country. A good set of instructions on changing proxies and finding working proxies can be found here:

tinyurl.com/4xcqlz

Don't worry, you're only missing an assload of commercials.

Go Pens

Anonymous said...

What the hell is this guy talking about?

Russ Tundra said...

Well, it looks like over confident wall street gurus. Are buying all the pro TB teams and tying to oversell them to the public. I didn't know it was going to get this fucking bad....

sladealex said...

Seth from Empty Netters is looking into the lack of radio access . . .

Update: Koci hit on Gonch is what forced Gonch off the ice.

lightning PP. . .what the fuck?

Russ Tundra said...

here is a few word summery of these annoy commercials. Steven Stamkos, Gary Roberts voice in a Cialis commercial. Steven Stamkos. Malone thanking his dad for joining him on the Lightning so that he can tuck him in at night. Steven Stamkos. and some asshole screaming Playoffs?!?!?! Steven Stamkos.

Fucking annoying

Help Me Rhonda said...

Excited much?? Hahaha...

sladealex said...

Wow . . . This announcer touches himself too much.

KaylaJ said...

WTF?!?..... It's Pre-Season.... this Guy is going to have a brain aneurysm.

slush said...

Kat said...

According to this guy, Stone just got handled....sad.

Russ Tundra said...

Holy Fucking Shit Goal!!!!!!! Fuck!!!!!! No wonder why people hate hockey down there.

Resputan said...

debrisslide said...

I wish I were seeing the game so I could tell what kind of penalties they're calling. This is kind of ridiculous.

Kierstan said...

WTF is up with all of these Pens penalties? Aargh.

debrisslide said...

gotta love even strength hockey.

Resputan said...

lightning penalty for touching bing

Nick said...

the empty netters blog is saying the fight was a draw

Russ Tundra said...

Barry Melrose paid the refs off in Pre-season. That's why. lol

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Sid just drew a penalty, chills out. Preseason, people. (Especially this announcer ... Lange I know is reliable ... who is this dude?)

debrisslide said...

". . .who is having a WHALE of a game in my opinion!"

this guy is such a fruitcake.

Russ Tundra said...

Let me guess.. Our Cindy Gaysby had a perfect 10 out of 10 dive to draw the Power Play.

Kierstan said...

TB up 2-1. >.<

debrisslide said...

Kierstan said...

The Pens are having issues with the Tampa Bay JV team, and this announcer is obnoxious. I'm glad we're able to listen to the game (and thanks for the help finding it, btw!), but right now it's just AARGH...and TB scored again. Excuse me while I go bang my head against a wall once or twice.

debrisslide said...

Goddammit.

I attribute our losing performance to a Max Talbot deficiency.

Yes, thank goodness it's only the preseason...I'm still irritated at the way the game's going though. :P

power play again 4 the pens

debrisslide said...

Power Play wooooo.

Anna :] said...

Power play (: I want a Geno goal really bad.

debrisslide said...

@nikki - this may be one of the more annoying hockey games I've listened to. Mostly because of the weird stuff that has happened and our inability to see it or at least hear Mike Lange say something about it.

Nick said...

Is Ramo dating Jessica Simpsons little sister? it would make sense!

debrisslide said...

I want Satan to get a goal hardcore.

Kierstan said...

The douchebaggery of the announcer doesn't help the listenability of the broadcast, either.
