The Miseducation Of OILER NATION

[<span class=

The whole Bloggergate situation up in Edmonton has taken on a personal note. We were more than comfortable linking to OILER NATION when everything was going down, saying that some journalist who no one has even heard of was siding with the Oilers. That was it. That's all we said. Oilers fans at the aptly named Oiler Nation stopped making out with each other to read a big-time post that Oiler Nation put together about us.

[Picture+3.png]
Here's the picture that is depicted in a banner atop OILER NATION'S blog.
See the ethnic/societal-diversity angle they're going for?
From right to left, we got the wily brunette, the Indian, the preppie, the blonde skank, and the Italian free spirit.

The goal when doing this is to welcome new people to the site
by subconsciously telling them that they (and people from all walks of life) are welcome.

But purposely excluding African-Americans and Asians from the diversity picture
is a prime example of the racism prevalent in today's society.

Being the equal-opportunity human beings that we are,
we decided to make a new one for them:

[Picture+4.jpg]

This whole thing started when a blog called JEAN SHORTS AND BAGGED MILK was insulted that we made fun of his "big brother," Robin Brownlee. Being a puppet for Brownlee much like OILERS NATION is puppeted by the Edmonton Oilers' organization, BaggedMilk was personally insulted that we said that traditional media was dying and that we "called out" his BF Brownlee and "hid" (as in, when our blog was down this past weekend).

Feel free to go and read BaggedMilk's scathing post about us at the link provided. The dude actually sent us the link back on October 22nd. He said he sent the link to us because when he calls someone out, he has balls and stands up to the heat. "Heat" in this sense probably refers to a naked man.

You'll agree after reading it that it was nothing worth mentioning.
His best dig at us:

"..You're writing a blog, you don't need any skill, education, or gramatical structure. (as you can plainly see here at jeanshorts and baggedmilk).."

Yawn.

We have been in bigger wars with better bloggers, and we thought the whole issue was dead. But BaggedBalls called upon his self-admitted "big brother that Pensblog wishes they had": Oiler Nation.

If you go and update his San Jose teal-background blog, you'll see he has posted and rebutted a string of e-mails we've had with him. We've gone with that tactic before, when we were still relying on other people for our own blog's content, so we can't say that's low-class.


BaggedMilk suited up for when the "OilersNation War Wagon" comes to Pittsburgh for battle.

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

BaggedMilk is pretty much a nuisance in this whole situation. Then again, we must praise him.
If it wasn't for him pushing the issue, we wouldn't have been able to expose Jason Gregor and Robin Brownlee as hypocrites.

Remember when everything was going down in Bloggergate, Brownlee and Gregor came out and supported the Oilers' decision in regard to booting COVERED IN OIL from the press box? That was a watershed moment for all of their fanboys at OILER NATION.

Many bloggers' looks at the situation (including ours) are not focused on the debate of whether or not bloggers should be allowed in the press box. It was the shady way the Oilers' brass handled the situation that sent shockwaves through the community of people on the internet that were interested in the story. We definitely put in our two cents in regard to the way traditional media is sinking. But we never lobbied for bloggers to have free reign in press boxes. We're just recognizing that the fans' voice is more prevalent than ever.

But Jason Gregor and Robin Brownlee, instead of taking the high road and simply telling bloggers to go get journalism degrees, decide to insult the intelligence of hockey fans and internet users everywhere by implying that people don't know whether or not they're reading something that is full of crap. Fortunately, we can tell the difference between something being full of crap or not. And if you want to read a blog that is completely full of crap, head to OILER NATION.

Why do we say this? Well, in Brownlee's blog post about Bloggergate that his fanboys were in love with, he said this in reference to bloggers:

If you want to start a website and write whatever you want without signing your name to it, have at it.
In any case, if you’re going to snipe away relentlessly, then you’d better be prepared to back up what you say or write. LINK

Not too bad.
But then we get to Jason Gregor's take:

There is no accountability on blogs and that is the problem.
My beef with bloggers is that anyone can be one. Most are nameless, faceless people who write their opinions, but unfortunately there are too many false facts in blogs.
LINK



Man, it would be unfortunate if Brownlee and Gregor's names were tied to a hockey blog that was disseminating misleading and unfactual information, because they hate that kind of thing.
Whoops. That blog is OILERS NATION, the blog they write for.

The link immediately above sends you to a blog post written by the King of Brownlee/Gregor fanboys, Wanye Gretz. He wrote the following post that has us questioning the credibility of Gregor/Brownlee:

"Close your blog to invited readers only? Chirp the Mighty OilersNation, call Edmontonians hicks and then go and hide? Make fun of Robin Brownlee and Jason Gregor and then close the shop so we can’t even read it to know what makes us so mad? Was it any good? Was it funny? Is it anything we can use ourselves? Now we’ll never know. This makes about as much sense as those new Mats Sundin poker ads on TV."

Without any source, without any information, Gregor and Brownlee's blog falsely reported that we had shut down our blog. And they also made us aware, in another section of their post, of their intent to cause us bodily harm by "loading up the OilersNation War Wagon," coming to Pittsburgh, and kicking the crap out of us. What else would you expect from people who don't include African-Americans and Asians in their fanbase?

It's truly a shame that a blog that Brownlee's and Gregor's names are tied to has resorted to accusing of us of something without asking us what truly happened. We were moving to a three-column format, messed up the code, and got stunned for a day.

It's almost as if "someone has jumped on the internet, sniped away relentlessly, and released too many false facts." And we'll throw in the threat on our lives as a bonus.
And, hey, they even sign their name to the blog.
Weren't there a couple of guys denouncing that type of "reporting"?


We are now openly calling for the questioning of any article written by Brownlee and anything reported by that hack Gregor.
Are Robin Brownlee and Jason Gregor hypocrites? You decide.

[puppet.jpg]

While you're contemplating that, Gregor and Brownlee are typing out another big post from the friendly confines of the Edmonton Oilers organization's back pocket.


P.S. to Wanye Gretz and his OILER NATION BF's:

When you cry after the Pens destroy the Oilers on November 6th, don't fake your tears like Wayne Gretzky did.

Monday night's results:

[boston.png][edmonton.png]



We were looking up the score for the game real quick,
and even Google's algorithms comprehend that the Oilers are sideshows:

Try it for yourself

wooooooo

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

That took you guys a really long time and far too much effort to come up with. Your last e-mail to us was about 4 hours ago and it took you that long to come up with this? I'd be impressed if it was funny but for some reason you guys are always caught up on naked pictures of dudes. Sooo... Burn? I'm not sure.

brett said...

never bring the heat against The Pensblog.. Exhibit A

Pensblog Staff said...

jeanshorts,

Shouldn't you call Robin and see if he approves of you writing in our comments.

homo

Pensblog Staff said...

Yeah, we actually have lives.
Sorry it took so long. The naked pictures was to make you feel more at home. Good job defending Brownlee and Gregor on this one. Maybe you'll come up with something eventually.

Stephen S. said...

Don't worry Manmilk... you'll finally get some hits now.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I'm not sure where you got that picture of me but normally I'm more tanned than that. I'll try to get you an updated one.

Pensblog Staff said...

Gregor called.

He needs his balls rubbed.

Kimberlass said...

Can this fight not ruin cblog?

meecrofilm said...

No, it's pretty amusing. Some pale turd thinks he (she?) is the shit and is trying to bring it against Staff.

Laughable at best.

Plus, that picture of Buries It is just too awesome. I could see it everywhere I went and I'd never get tired of it.

chris said...

blah, was interested at first but now it's like..... who gives a shit. You seem to be grasping at straws here with this post, but still amusing.
Whatev, let's get back to hockey.

raventalon40 said...

I agree about your assessment of Gregor but if you really wanted to make a point you should have been objective about it, not insulting our team and being mature about it.

I was a Pensblog reader until I found out how you respond to these types of situations.

Too bad.

The Goon Blogger said...

No one cares about these douche bags. Solid job, but seriously, are these guys like the Rob Rossi of Edmonton? Then who gives a fuck?

Pensblog Staff said...

gasping or not.

We're not going to take shit from some jobber Oilers fan. Take that to the bank.

Pensblog Staff said...

Raven,

I can assure you, you won't be missed.

pops said...

if Pensblog staff says go, Pensblog nation will retaliate

but for fucks sake, this all sounds retarded, can the oiler-blog-jokes just shut the fuck up so we can all go our separate ways?

Nov 6th.

meecrofilm said...

Sorry Raven, but that's the point. It's perfectly feasible to be objective, while at the same time, use a lot of hilariously bad middle school jokes. And the jobbers are people who can't read between the lines.

debrisslide said...

. . .so much jobbing. *sigh*

GwinTheEskimo said...

who is on the oilers this year?

TheNWChica said...

Is that 12 year old boy who is wearing the costume supposed to be a gay Vulcan?

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I appreciate the effort, but I don't understand the need to rely completely on gay and racist jokes. Clearly you've never been to Alberta because there is literally .02% people of non caucasian heritage. And if the movie Sudden Death has taught me anything, it's that Pittsburgh falls under the same umbrella.

Decent effort this time though. Better than those well thought out emails we got.
I hope for your sake Crosby keeps his head up on the 6th.

-jeanshorts

Stein said...

Edmonton has become such a joke....Go Pens!

pops said...

yea i hope sid does too, cause who would the pens retaliate against? Zack Stortini or Kyle Brodziak?

eileenover said...

jeanshorts, I'm sorry Charlie was too busy with Jason Spezza.

The Goon Blogger said...

Maybe someone on the Kid line of Edmonton would lay Crosby out, they'd probably charge the fans in attendence an extra 25 bucks to throw a check though. Jokes.

TheNWChica said...

I think Fernando needs his colostomy bag changed!

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

All these comments are hilarious. Keep them coming because I'm cracking up over here. For a blog that you've called meaningless so many times we sure pissed you off.

-baggedmilk

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I understand that most fans of the dreaded "Eastern Conference" don't really keeps tabs on the other 15 teams West of Toronto, but clearly you've seen this man before?

You didn't piss us off, don't flatter yourself.

pops said...

goddard is waiting

meecrofilm said...

"I hope for your sake Crosby keeps his head up on the 6th. "

hahahahahahahah. Yeah. The powers that be from Oiler Nation are gonna sendword out to the players that they're being picked on by the evil, evil blogging world. The Pens superstars are gonna pay for that!

Edmonton has to be one of the softest teams in the league.

becky said...

jeandouche, learn to link. what are you, five?

pops said...

its great to have rivalries. godard and bissonnette are due for a fight. its been like a game since we've seen them crush someone.

TC237 said...

"OilersNation War Wagon" head to the 'Burgh?

Mount up, Lock and Load boys, we got us a posse headin' this way.
Ben, you take Old Joe and find a nice high spot, Clem and John Boy will head 'round backside of Old Bald Knob, Me and Lefty will meet down by the river crossin.

If the got any women taggin along, let 'em go, we ain't got horses big enough to haul 'em back to camp.
Good shootin' boys, remember aim low.

becky said...

where's my skimmers?

debrisslide said...

So, how about them Penguins?

raventalon40 said...

I don't know what you mean by jobber and if I guess it must be internet lingo I've never heard of. I only know what I read there's nothing between the lines there - it is what it is.

Interesting fact:

A Google search of the keywords "Pittsburgh" and "gay" turned up around 4,620,000 links and a Google search of "Edmonton" and "gay" turned up around 1,950,000 links. Dividing links by metro population according to Wikipedia, that turns out to 1.88 and 1.80 links per person in Pittsburgh and Edmonton respectively.

These are rough estimates, but apparently, Pittsburgh and Edmonton are roughly equal in the "gay" department.

meecrofilm said...

Sometimes, even the Pens have to be put on hold when there's some good old-fashioned jobbing to do.

tPB hasn't truly jobbed someone in a while. It's good to be back.

TheNWChica said...

McIntyre??? Yeah...sooooo scary against Rob Davison Saturday night.

Let's see him against someone like Ivanans or Parros or Boogaard.

pops said...

i almost feel bad. i hope these edmonton clowns keep coming back, because they don't even realize they'll probably be a running joke on this blog for the next month, if not season.

Pensblog Staff said...

10:30 PM tomorrow its all business.

Until then, job'em all

meecrofilm said...

Did you really just take a gay joke literally? Really? You bothered to do research because of a gay joke?

debrisslide said...

Staff, I can totally abide by that.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Just enjoy all the Canadians and Europeans on your team. We'll enjoy Crosby and Fleury on our Olympic team.

raventalon40 said...

Yeah. I did. I've eliminated that joke as a factual inclusion. Continuing the "jobbing," as you've described. But anyway, the point was to eliminate fact from fiction.

pops said...

don't be so hard on them. they're probably quite used to googling "gay" and "major cities"

Pensblog Staff said...

jeanshorts= worst comebacks ever.

What is this 2006?

becky said...

@raventalon40; unless you wrote a master's thesis on how the google result for searching gay + (city name) is a correlation to the actual gay population in a city, stfu about your made up statistics.

let the team do the talking.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

"Let's see him against someone like Ivanans or Parros or Boogaard."

I would love to see him fight Parros, but he challenged him twice and Parros wouldn't have it. And I can't wait for Boogard/MacIntyre. It's going to be a show that's for sure.

And as for the links, I'm sorry I'm not good at this whole "internet" thing. My Apple II is running kind of slow and my apostrophe key is sticky. If you've seen our blog you clearly know we have no skill at anything computers.

-jeanshorts

meecrofilm said...

Oh shit. He went there.

Olympics. checkmate. Fuck.

By the way, none of us here could give a shit about what the ethnicity of the players on the Penguins is. If they play for the Pens, we will root for them.

Why are so many Canadiens so damn concerned about what country which players are from? Why the battle for ethnic supremecy?

You must have an inferiority complex.

Or be a complete joke.

Probably both.

OrpikSmash said...

"my apostrophe key is sticky"

apparently he got a little too excited to see the gay pictures

pops said...

yea, sorry. the olympics might as well be the fucking ECHL. how are the nailers doing?

TheNWChica said...

Parros wouldn't go? I highly doubt that....the only time George doesn't go is when he's in the box already!

Pensblog Staff said...

Jeanshorts,

Did Gregor call you yet? He has to be worried, it is past your bedtime.

pops said...

wouldn't it be more appropriate if your name was jeanshortshorts?

raventalon40 said...

becky: You're obviously not caught up to speed on the situation. The two blogs in question "jeanshorts" and "Pensblog" have been making remarks to each other on the "gayness" of the respective cities and organizations. Outside of the context of the "gay joke" made by your own "Pensblog," I've pretended it was a "serious" remark so that I could dissect and thus prove it was a point worth excluding.

Nowhere did I claim it was fact. If you go back and read it

These are rough estimates, but apparently, Pittsburgh and Edmonton are roughly equal in the "gay" department

you'll see clearly that I said so myself. It was just an overview. Keep your pantyhose on, Becky.

debrisslide said...

The fact that the word "jobbing" is being discussed intellectually is blowing my mind.

raventalon40 said...

@pops:

Awesome photo man!

meecrofilm said...

Jeanshorts, can I interest you and your shitty oilers in some candy?

It's free.

And it's 100% American.

Man, just think, if more than 3 people read your piss poor excuse for a blog, you'd have more people on your side.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I'm running on Pacific time so I still have at least an hour of internet time.

And have you seen Parros' shot? He has made the move from fighter to sniper and it's only a matter of time before he leads the Ducks to the cup.

-jeanshorts

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Look at all them amurcans flooding the gates of jeanshorts and baggedmilk. Hopefully our shitty blog doesn't freeze up so you guys can tell us how bad we suck. Your comments are priceless.

i thank you for the photo complement.

we should do this again sometime, oil jokes.

sharks tomorrow.

fedotenko will be clutch.

TheNWChica said...

Poke fun at George if you want...he has a ring.

becky said...

with charm like that it's a wonder you've never gotten laid, raventalon40.
Your logical fallacy re; gaaaaaaay bores me, as does your general misogyny.

meecrofilm said...

Raven, it was a gay joke. I really don't they think were trying to pass it off as fact. Hence, the word, JOKE (which is what it was admittedly referred to as by you).

pops said...

oh also,

USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

just had to put that out there.

but more importantly, go pens go

Stephen S. said...

Really? You're getting hits now?

Hmmm...


You're welcome.

raventalon40 said...

Wtf are you talking about becky? I haven't committed any logical fallacies and what does misogyny have to do with anything? "Keep your pantyhose on" is a figure of speech.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I think you should dive deep into the depths of our blog, because we have, on many occasions, expressed nothing but heterosexual love for George Parros. He has the slickest style in the league. And dude is Princeton grad who makes his money by trading meat hooks.
He's welcome to don the copper and blue any day.

Wow jeanshorts. 7 comments. Is your blog even equipped to handle double-digits? Nobody reads what you write. How does that make you feel.

Oh, and, now this is actually serious. I do have to congratulate you on something. For representing your fellow canadiens with such dignity. You are a consummate citizen.

Actually, you're a bigot. And none of us are. Which makes you shit.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Yeah we're getting hits. We've officially gone from 3 to 7 on the day. Things are finally looking up.

becky said...

"keep your pantyhose on" isn't misogynistic? It's not meant to be dismissively sexist? don't think naivety is some kind of defense, it's a dick thing to say.

you committed a logical fallacy that's a cross between the argument from popularity and the undistributed middle.

and you're a douche.

I liked the fight with the arrogant professor a lot more. The comebacks by these jokes are just really really weak.

raventalon40 said...

Wow jeanshorts. 7 comments. Is your blog even equipped to handle double-digits...for representing your fellow canadiens with such dignity...

I'm not here to defend jeanshorts as much the Edmonton Oilers. That being said, a few points:

a) Canadiens is a hockey team; I think you mean Canadians
b) Google runs the servers for all the Blogspot/Blogger pages, so that is a pretty stupid comment
c) it is ironic that the Pensblog should bring race issues into this. Here are some numbers that are not guaranteed facts, but anyway:

Consider these statistical demographics regarding "visible minorities":

USA national average:
Asians - 4.4%
Blacks - 12.8%
Hispanic - 14.8%
Other - 68.0%

Pennsylvania state average:
Asians - 2.4%
Blacks - 10.7%
Hispanic - 4.2%
Other - 82.7%

Canada national average:
Asians - 10.3%
Blacks - 2.5%
Hispanic - 1.0%
Other - 86.2%


Alberta provincial average:
Asians - 9.4%
Blacks - 1.4%
Hispanic - 0.8%
Other - 88.4%

It is interesting to note the percentage of represented visible minorities who are citizens eligible to vote in Alberta are higher than that of Pennsylvania. This leads to the conclusion that i) OilersNation is not representing minority groups that have a substantial population percentage and ii) Pensblog is representing minority groups that doesn't.

What does that mean? Strangely, it means that both blogs are equally hypocritical in that regard.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

"Strangely, it means that both blogs are equally hypocritical in that regard."

If by equally hypocritical you mean both are poorly written, poorly layed out, and whoever reads them is a jerk, then yes, both blogs ARE equally hypocritical. Especially jeanshorts and baggedmilk. Fuck does that site reek of mediocrity. I guarantee Edmonton Oilers locker room attendant Joey Moss could run a better blog. He'd probably have more legitimate things to say.

-jeanshorts

jimmyjazz14 said...

yeah im pretty sure the point of the pensblog is that its written from a fans point of view.

if i want breaking news il call up rob rossi or davy-mo.

for some reason or another, people jizz all over their own faces over the word "blog".

if this was 1998 this would be a geocities or tripod site.

nobody can help it that at some point someone invented a much less tedious way of designing a web page and made something easy to control and update instead of constantly writing html.

its really nobodies fault that traditional journalists caught on too late other than their own. really, its not too their advantage because fans can post legit stuff without some editor complaining about his balls and shit. but come on, if you have such a problem with it, then either quit your paper job or whatever and blog full time knowing full well you're going to make 20 bucks a month, or just shut up.

its the same buzz bissinger/will leitch thing. just because its a "blog" goesnt mean its the fuckin' drudge report. sometimes i just wanna read a recap of a game that has references to balls, my girlfriend on her period, and the drummer with one arm from def lepard. is that such a crime?

oh and only canada has bagged milk which is why canada sucks donkey nuts.

akus said...

Damn i hate SO!!!

and pantyhose...

raventalon40 said...

@meecro: It's not a resort, an excuse, or supposed to cover anything up. You wondered why I wrote all that useless stuff about Google, and my answer is to give some rough explanation to people who would take such a joke seriously.

@meecro: Well you can call me all sorts of names and fling all sorts of degrading insults and automatically I'm misogynistic. You're a hypocrite.

raventalon40 said...

sorry, that last comment was directed at becky, not meecro

Haha. Chica, King Shero would definitely win that.

I get drunk a few nights ago and inadvertenly rip tPB staff to shreds for no good reason.

Then they make this post and all is right in the world.


@Staff: My apologies for the slander.

@Staff (again): I think the old "Cblog under attack" title is in order.... DO IT

meecrofilm said...

Oh my god, I consciously forgot to capitalize a nationality. and look, here again, I didn't capitalize my sentence!

Wow. Do you seriously have NO sarcasm detector at all? Really?

Google runs the servers for all the Blogspot/Blogger pages, so that is a pretty stupid comment

Who doesn't know that. I can't honestly believe you'd think anyone would be serious when saying what I said. You must just b effing around.

And now look, you've just wasted more time looking up meaningless shit that absolutely no one will bother to read. Because someone made a sarcastic joke. Which you continually fail to understand. Now it's just funny though!

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

"Oh my god, I consciously forgot to capitalize a nationality. and look, here again, I didn't capitalize my sentence!"

Actually you used an A in place of an E in the word Canadian.
But your grammar was out of this world!

-jeanshorts

meecrofilm said...

@bng. I was kind of guilty of the same thing. Nothing like some good old-fashioned jobbing to unite under.

jimmyjazz14 said...

also on a side note, gotta love the back and forth shit about crosby keeping his head up and edmonton players, whoever they have, i think sam gayne, and shit. like players actually get fueled for a game by comment blog posts. amazing.

raventalon40 said...

No, not the capitalization. The spelling. The Canadiens is the team in Montreal, nobody refers to them unless you're a fan.

This is similar to a post earlier where someone referred to Americans as "americuns"... but anyway...

meecrofilm said...

When I'm writing a paper for school, I spell check.

When I'm on the internet, I couldn't give a smaller shit.

Attacking minor grammatical errors is just another way of saying "I don't have anything better to attack you with."

And wow, don't you run a blog? Can't you use HTML?

BlacknGold66 said...

Meecrofilm for Prez still stands.

(as long as Scuds is VP)

Crosby not keeping his head up?

Hmmmm... last time anything remotely close to that happened was when Sweet Knees knocked his tooth out rookie year.

Someone please remind me how that game ended????

jimmyjazz14 said...

"Actually you used an A in place of an E in the word Canadian.
But your grammar was out of this world!"

thats because people arent really aware canada is a real country. i have canadian relatives. they suck.

ya its just kinda gay to pick a fight with a blog written by people who write it for the sake of writing it just because you're probably gonna lose your job eventually because of this phenomenon.

you'll find a job at a highway glory hole dont worry.

do they have gallons in canada or is it all liters and metrics shit?

meecrofilm said...

I miss jobbing New York fans. At least more than 2 people showed up. But then again, when jeanshorts's blog only has two readers, I guess this is the best we can expect.

raventalon40 said...

Lol, what I do on Blogspot has nothing to do with HTML coding. It's just copy and paste, and we both know that. The scripts mess with my tables. I've actually worked with a web design company before and I wouldn't touch the shit I "design" on here with a ten foot pole. But nice try.

I wasn't attacking you, actually. I'm just saying that it wouldn't really matter if not for the fact that the spelling of the two words actually have different meanings. The word "americuns" can't be misunderstood because there is no close substitute but since we're talking about hockey here the Canadiens of Montreal have some relevance, however small the magnitude.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Oh nice, I like the glory hole idea.

Can you guys all go click on some ads so we can afford a drill to make one? Toss us some quarters or something.

Nationality is null in the NHL. Seriously. Nobody but you gives a shit what countries which players are from on whatever team.

This isn't the fucking Olympics.

Jason Blake is our property? That doesn't even make any sense.

Well, I guess it does if you're a bigot.

@bng: Yeah. they've been done to death, and those who use them just come off as ignorant idiots (but no offense meant personally, Jimmy.)

Why the hell do you keep bringing it up? Those guys are fags.

Wow, what has happened to cblog? And why are we fighting with Edmonton? Cant we just let the hockey do the talking? They are obviously just bitter Sidney Crosby plays for us, but who wouldn't be? Maybe you guys will see the playoffs again someday soon.

meecrofilm said...

Oh, sorry Raven. That's my fault, actually. I should've specified I was adressing jeanshorts with that specific comment, because, going off of earlier posts, he can't make a simple link or use italics to save his life.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

We would like to exercise our right let our Stanley Cups do the talking.

And lets be real here for a second. Neither of our teams could get it done in the finals as of late. Maybe we have more in common than you'd like to admit.

meecrofilm said...

Hahahaha. Scott Gomez. One of the worst contracts in the NHL right now.

The last time the Oilers were relevant

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Don't blame jeanshorts. We just got access to this here interweb a couple months ago. I had to get a crew full of asians to rig it up and shit. Problem was they wouldn't leave, opened a bunch of bottle depots and now we're stuck with them. Our bad.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

Thank you for your support baggedmilk. Hey I have a blog you should check out. It's jeanshortsandbaggedmilk.blogspot.com

Sorry I can't work links, someone once told me that I'm internet retarded.

Anyway, salutation and god bless.

What I don't understand is a bunch of lame posts by the Js&Bm writers making fun of themselves. What's the point? We already know you suck.

No one gives a shit about Edmonton or their blog. I've seen far better trolls than this.

And a big F U to any arrogant Canadian who thinks U.S. hockey fans are stupid. I and many other Pens fans that I know are very active in activities outside of Pittsburgh hockey. Fantasy puck, NHL Center Ice just to name a few. Don't generalize American hockey fans.

Oh, and for all of the love George Parros is getting, can I be the first to acknowledge that he hails from the Pittsburgh area? Yea, that's a fact.

I actually thought he was serious with all of his self-depriciating posts, but, whatever.

I get the whole "neither team could get it done in the finals" comment, except that it doesn't really make a lot of sense. Now if you said, "Neither team could play well enough to MAKE the finals as of late," then I'd be more on board with your comment.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I see your point. But there is actually two of us.

(On a side note who is that in your profile picture? It looks like celebrated Canadian sportscaster James Duthie.)

By getting it done he means winning the holy grail itself, Lord Stanley.

That's weaksauce.

meecrofilm said...

Allison, thanks for the quick update. I don't doubt Sabutage's ability at all in net, but I think maybe it's a little soon since his last start. I dunno. MAF has basically won half of the Pens' points by himself so far. And when it comes down to it, San Jose poses an overall more dangerous attack than Boston does.

Fleury's been lights out so far. I think it'd make more sense to start him against San Jose, and then if you must give Sabu a nod, let him have the Phoenix game.

TheNWChica said...

James Duthie? Celebrated? Um...okay.

Allison said...

@meecrofilm-
yea I was a little puzzled when I read it too, thinking the same thing about san jose/ pheonix, but who knows... as strange as Therrien's decisions sometimes are, I think they usually pan out in the long run.

Geez, well i know that! I'm beginning to think you're just messing with me on purpose =p

My point is that, by making that comment, one is implying that either team could at least be good enough to make it to the finals, which would suggest that they're doing a lot of things right.

Personally, I think neither team is playing at the level needed to just make it to the finals at all, let alone get it done once there.

But hey, 82 game season. It's a marathon, not a sprint. See: Ottawa Senators, 07-08 season.

BlacknGold66 said...

BlacknGold66 said...

By-the-way, I can fly.

meecrofilm said...

Allison, when you think about it, we haven't really visited Planet Therrien all that much recently. He's actually been making a lot more sense with his decisions regarding lines and goaltenders.

In a strange way, it's good to be back.

TheNWChica said...

Allison and meecrofilm: I wonder if HCMT is trying to have Sabu play a little more than Conk did so Fleur not only stays fresher;but Sabu's ready in case, god forbid, something happens to Fleur.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

"Personally, I think neither team is playing at the level needed to just make it to the finals at all, let alone get it done once there."

As of right now, definitely. I was speaking in terms of the last 3 seasons however.

At least now this inter-conference game is going to have a little meaning, rather than being more or less a waste of time for both teams. And of course I'm speaking purely in terms of division and conference standings.

-jeanshorts

BlacknGold66 said...

Whatever the case, if Sabu plays like he did his last start... I'm happy.

meecrofilm said...

Oh, if that's the case, then I'm fine with that. I just question the decision to have Sabu start the San Jose game and the Fleury the Phoenix game, and why it isn't the other way around.

jefe p said...

good to hear sabu is starting tomorrow, cause fleury better start in phoenix. 2 years ago in phx thibault started. we won 7-2, but still. i want the flower this time.

and on thursday, the satan and free candy combo will be unreal.


also ive never been so entertained yet so annoyed by cblog as i am right now.

Allison said...

exactly

meecrofilm said...

Though Sabu is probably going to rock the shit tomorrow. The decision is just theory-based anyways.

I'm just happy that we don't have to deal with the last season shit of "Hey, Sabourin played a good game, let's start him again in the next game!" Only for him to suck horribly. Every single time.

Allison said...

well ,that exactly was directed at meecrofilm's last comment, but it also goes for the last part of jefe p's

TheNWChica said...

All I know is that I'm happier than shit because I actually get to see an entire Pens game on a weekday this week on Thursday!

History lesson for cblog:

See any post in regards to....

-any cblog thread visited by R*G*B


These kinda threads are what get us through Rocktober - January in hockey season.

meecrofilm said...

Exactly. Think of cblog as your balls (or ovaries, for our female friends). It's good to keep things business as usual, but when they start getting all covered in shit, you have to fucking defend it. Defend your balls.

Good call, BNG. I love it.

And sorry Allison... it was a metaphor that got a little out of control =p


OH, and Scuds is as solid of a running mate as anyone'll find. If we get enough write-in votes, we will in fact be able to bring change to you and your mom.

I'm a huge Oilers fan & I can't stand reading Oilers Nation's shit.

As far as Pensblog dissing the Oilers..thats part of hockey. This is NOT kindergarden..everybody isn't suppose to get along. I'm not a Pens fan but I still love reading this blog.

Never change, guys..never change.

BlacknGold66 said...

I still say Meecrofilm = FH

None-the-less: Meecrofilm/Scuds for Prez.

(Unless I "write-in" Hil-Dog)

(Would that be so bad?)

On a hockey note...

Thank God it would never Monsoon during game 5 of the SCF with Lord Stanley on the line. (see: MLB playoffs). I would shit myself.

meecrofilm said...

Karma's a bitch. Don't throw smoke bombs at hockey games and baseball games won't get rained out.

Philly fans don't deserve anything resembling a national champioship. If there's any justice in the world, Tampa will come back. But, as the content of sites like Hot Chicks with Douchebags proves, there may in fact be no justice in the world after all.

Morning classes are rearing their ugly-ass head. I've got to get to bed. G'night c-blog, thanks for the great times.

Mike, (Avs Fan) said...

Oilers suck.

neipo13 said...

lolz Epic blogfight and WAYYYYYY too many people caring.

Chill you'll both keep your respective readers because they are fans. Attacking each others integrity does nothing but turn fans off to blogger news anyway.

Edmonton sucks, but apparently they do have fans and someone who loves to post stats that no one cares about (the number of links given when searching a city and gay? Really?) Edmonton fans have no reason to read the Pensblog and I certainly will not be checking out these other jobbers anytime soon. So let's get off this topic and back to something we all enjoy, gay jokes!

I mean hockey.

neipo13 said...

Oh and yes, Team Canada would torch the US national team in hockey.

But does anyone really care?

The Goon Blogger said...

Arabian Facebuster in net tonight. Do it.

BlacknGold66 said...

Most fans know not to get "news" from a blog.

This is about having fun.

neipo13 said...

Yeah blogs are about fun. The photoshops and shit are nothing but fun. These are essentially fansites. But sometimes blogs do post real news. Stats, facts, you know things that are useful to know. When both parties claim misinformation about stupid things, it turns people off to reading the blogs at all. Honestly I don't really care what OilerNation or whoever else says. They can keep it on their own site, I just wanna talk hockey. And read gayjokes.

Got it.

Unlike the Oilers' current fanbase, which can probably be scribbed on one side of an index card, the Penguins fan base spans several continents. From this blog alone, I know of posters from the UK, Australia, Korea, and of course Canada.

Have fun with your blog. As they saying goes, "If another blog falls on the Internet and nobody hears it...eh, who gives a fuck?"

I think the unmentioned issue here is this. Who the hell makes a blog and calls it "Jean Shorts and Bagged Milk"? Seriously? I mean, if it works, maybe I should start the blog of my dreams, "Man Pigtails and Nipple Clamps"

Pittsburghler said...

I don't understand why you would even dignify those douchebags with a response at all, let alone a blog post as lengthy as that. Im not trying to tell you how to run your blog, just saying whatev, this is gay.

I don't really give a damn about the Edmonton Oilers or Sprocket Nation or whatever they call themselves. Those people are nothing but haters living in the past. Being from Pittsburgh, I know from whence I speak on this subject.

Fortunately, our time is now. I'd hate us too if I were the rest of the NHL and their fans. So bring the hate. We're still better than you.

Sooska said...

I haven't been around to cblog in a while but I read posts every day. This blog "war" is a joke. Since they blamed a black guy for the smoke bomb in Filthy the other night may I suggest it was one of the edmonton milk baggers in black face?

@staff: if it's edmonton (or whatever the name of that provincial tundra cow town is) shouldn't it be "African Canadians?"

@BNG66- damn! you are right of course!! history lesson! you wrote about previous trolls -these current ones don't have a clue and cannot compare to the sheer genius of r*g*b - he kept us rolling for weeks during the palyoffs! BTW Where is "I am sean avery's spleen" today?"

these milk baggers are boring.

dying alive said...

I couldn't be happier that last night's WS game got rained out. I'm not really a believer in karma, but you've got to believe that it was evidence of some higher power "rewarding" Philly fans for their fucked-up antics over the years.

Sooska said...

@dying alive- I am down here in Phillie territory. You said what I was thinking this morning. What is that old line: "God will get you for this?"

Stilly said...

@dying alive

The only downside is that this gives the most annoyingly bitchy fans on the planet something else to bitch about. All I've heard this morning is that Selig wants the Rays to win (I live in Harrisburg). Does that sound familiar at all?

debrisslide said...

Dude, gotta love waking up to read a flame war on cblog.

Going back to bed though. Class is a bitch and I don't want to be dead to the world for the Sharks game.

"jeanshorts and baggedmilk". . .god, why?

KaylaJ said...

blah blah blah edmonton, blah blah blah kick ass, blah blah blah penguins.

now that i have that out of the way i kinda just want to find a philly sports talk station and listen to a bit of the phillies fans crying in their spilt milk,(HA milk, get it? yeah, whatev). i can hear it now "sob sob, we don't know what a winner looks like and they've taken it away, sob sob". i mean seriously, it sucks the game got rained out, but if you wanted your city to win its first championship in half a game and were hoping for a rainout, that's pretty damn weak. take it all the way

and totally off subject, but i just wonder in times of these economic worries, how much do you think china makes from all those little american flags people have at political rallies? i think i'm gonna start making my own so four years from now i can rake in some money since if you don't have one at the rally, you're obviously a commie. who's with me?!

Oh totally. Every commissioner of every professional sports league on the planet is part of a vast conspiracy to deny Philadelphia their rightful championships. I think we're all well aware of that by now.

Lady Jaye said...

Wow... I don't think I've ever been rendered speechless by shenanigans.

J.S. said...

If there is a God (and not a Godard, which we already know there is), he will allow the Rays to pitch the shutout and score a run tonight, take it back to Tampa for another win, and then ruin the Phillies in their own stadium in game 7 on I guess what appears to be Friday.

@ js

Sadly, we won't get to see the Rays win the WS in Philly, as the MLB playoff format goes 2-3-2. Still, we can hope that Philly fans pack the Trop in game 7, only to get blown out and have prime "STUNNED" picture opportunities.
