MARIO LEMIEUX DAY

FROM C-BLOG legend COFFEYTALK:

Dear Pensblog Faithful,

Well guys, it's that time of year...

The time for giving, drinking, and holiday cheer.

This year, in honor of one of the greatest fake holidays ever created, lets get together and do something right! It's a Festivus for the rest of us!

Come to Calico Jack's on the North Shore and help benefit The Mario Lemieux Foundation.

I will be accepting donations throughout the night. You can officially "bury it" yourself in my donation box. (that's what she said) Also, my dear friend Randy the magical bartender will be generously giving 25% of all his tips to the foundation. He's a beast. You'll see.

All donations will be given to the pledge drive started by a great man and friend, Matthew Craven aka your c-blog fan favorite, blackngold66:


LINK

The goal is to reach $660 before January 15th. We are only a few hundred short and I believe that in one night, we can easily knock out the rest and then some.

There will be great drink specials all night. And for those that haven't reached that magical age of 21 yet, don't you worry, it's an all ages event!
Plus, come watch the Pens skate all over Tampa Bay up at the bar.

ALSO, my brother and I will be spinning great tunez all evening. (yep, i'm sure you'll hear that Janne Pesonen theme song)

So please come on down for some Festivus fun and a great chance to give to a fantastic Foundation. It'll be a great night for wooooooooooooooo.

For more information about what The Mario Lemieux Foundation does, please check out THEIR SITE

If you can't make our little shindig but still want to donate, please click your way over HERE.

And remember, cancer didn't bury 66, 66 buried cancer.

woooooooooooooo.

Lets Go Pens,

-annie lawry (or better known as the one and only, coffeytalk)

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LOWELL!!



NICE.VERY.NICE.

meecrofilm said...

I can't even comprehend that picture.

No words describe it.

Pure.... so pure.... just

ggaahgrzxargawnhllplqg .. ... . .

holygoligoski said...

Unreal.

dhudzin said...

I might actually do this.

dhudzin said...

And somebody please fix the Lemieux spelling on the poster!

Pensblog Staff said...

damn it. our fault 100%.
we put up the wrong poster that coffey sent us

ac

meecrofilm said...

Also,

What?

akus said...

@meecrofilm,
to borrow your words on the 6'7 ,185 backup goalie for the Caps.

"No words describe it."

Now i know what shit game to watch on CI!

coffeytalk said...

not only am i legendary for the amazing words i spit out on this here comment section...

i am also legendary for awful drunk typos at 3am.

don't make a flyer for a benefit part-ay at 3:30am with a belly full-o-beer.

but DO, come to my Festivus celebration.

do it or i will bury YOU.

stokes said...

That's why Coffeytalk is a big deal.

stokes said...

Lowell, how? what did he say about that nickname?

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

It's gonna be LEDGE-UN-DAIRY...

Thank you for putting this together Annie, can't wait for the feats of strength.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

I know Stokey, pic with no backstory...why the tease? What did he say? Did he offer you room and board? Could you even speak in his presence?

CK said...

So we just show up at Calico Jack's and partay? Or do we need to show some kind of super secret Pensblog handshake?

Rage said...

I always vote for the super secret squirrel handshake!!!

coffeytalk said...

just show up, dude. bring id if you want adult beverages. bring cash for donating if you don't want to be labeled as a d-bag.



woooooooooooooooo

Stoosh said...

Commit to the Coffeytalk...

The Stooshes are going to do our damnedest to get there because the possibility of throwing back a few wobbly pops and getting to sing along to some Martti Vainaa with fellow c-bloggers is...well...the sheer awesomeness is more than we can comprehend.

Not quite as awesome for Coffey and BNG66 putting all of this Lemieux Foundation stuff together, but still awesome.

meecrofilm said...

I vote handshake.

In otha news.

Connor James woooooo.

meecrofilm said...

And love the HIMYM link, coffeytalk.

"I hope you're not lactose intolerant.."

CK said...

Can I dole out secret handshakes anyway?

I've been practicing.

coffeytalk said...

Staff,

Thanks again for sharing this with Pensblog Nation. And thanks for putting up with my 1066 drunky emails/texts and such.

all my love and sarcasm,
me

coffeytalk said...

you got it, CK. Do as ya need.

nikki said...

lundqvist is having another tough night- ny is already losing 5-1 against the devils
hahaha, seriously, why is he still in the net?

CK said...

Sweet I'll be there. Celebrating my birthday and return to the 'Burgh a day late.

meecrofilm said...

nikki,

Zajac has also scored what I like to call the "Troubadour Hat Trick," (why? because it sounds awesome. and kid of makes sense), which is an even-strength, PP, and PK goal. And it was a natural one too.

coffeytalk said...

For those that are on the book of face, i do have an event invite going:

do it

please feel free to invite friends or relatives with deep pockets.

the more the merrier.

nikki said...

meercofilm- solid. all i saw was the last goal, im kinda torn, i don't really know who i want to lose
i guess nj is the lesser of 2 evils though

meecrofilm said...

Oh, well, nevermind. NHL.com with the epic fail. Apparently Johhy I'll-do-ya scored the shorty. Zajac didn't even factor into the play. derr.

sven butenschon said...

This quite possiblly could be the proudest day of my life (tear)

I buy an ass ton of stuff directly off of his agent and I had a favor coming
He explained it to the big guy and he thought it was funny
Mike explained to Buries it how well he is spoken of on TPB and he showed him the pic of Buries it and Geno from the winter classic When Geno accused Mario of buying his jeans @ Gabe's and he was rolling

Lowell

coffeytalk said...

Lowell wins.

Stoosh said...

Sven,

There aren't words in any language to describe that picture, but holy fucking shit would be a terrific start.

Allison said...

I'm not sure I have ever been more upset that I live over 400 miles from Pittsburgh. I would love to be at this party more than almost anything.grrrrrr...Coffeytalk and BNG, you are my heroes for the night.

nicholas richter said...

by far, the greatest picture to ever grace thepensblog. the world just imploded. words can't even describe it.

sven butenschon said...

can't wait for the airing of grievances

coffeytalk said...

Allison, I am going to make this an annual event so maybe next year you can come. Traditions can be awesome. Especially ones that involve booze and Buries It.

coffeytalk said...

I will have to schedule the Airing of Grievances and The Feats of Strength for after the Pens game.

Does anyone have a spare pole? (not of the stripper variety, please.)

stokes said...

I'd like to get Lowell's autograph if i could...

dhudzin said...

@ coffey

Typos will happen. It's all in the name of a good drunk, yeah?

sven butenschon said...

I am going to do my best to show up for the party
Hope to see you there I'll be the one in the Buries it jersey

sven butenschon said...

@ Coffey
How long of a pole do you need?
That what she said

coffeytalk said...

I enjoy a good long pole.

nicholas richter said...

jokin the vote

nikki said...

DO IT

Allison said...

@coffeytalk- I atually would consider planning my yearly trip to my mecca around your party. I'm not kidding. It might all depend on how strict you are with the legalitly part of it though... maybe I'll make it to the third annual lol.

Hip said...

I will be there. Done.
My days start at 4:30 am now, so show your asses up at 7 sharp so I can meet you all and still be in bed by 9.


Coffeytalk and BNG - two parts of the holy trinity of Cblog. What humans.

dhudzin said...

I'm purely speculating here, but I doubt it's up to coffey on who gets to drink or not. I'm sure if it was up to her, all c-blog would drink for free, of age or not...

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Sven buttonscoot, that story was all I could ever imagine...to think that you'll sport that jersey rather than frame it speaks highly of you. I think...

Good people, good music, good times, and plying of drink. Be there or be a Flyers fan.

Vanessa said...

Aaaah! It's so cool you guys posted this! I wish I could come, but an 8 hour drive is a bit much 2 days before christmas. I hope you guys raise a bunch of money and have a raucus time. I will listen to Pelimes that night and have myself a few beers just to be there in spirit.

Well done Annie!

Allison said...

@vanessa- the fact that the 8 hour drive ever crossed your mind as a viable option makes you a better human. I wish I could say the same for myself, as my drive would also be 8 hours, but you are jsut a better human

CK said...

Well Operation: Ovie doesn't seem to have worked.

Those Habs are actually getting closer to Geno.

Allison said...

op ovie-
kinda like op ivy

i like it

KaylaJ said...

awesome pic and congrats lowell!

and if you haven't already, donate!

Chubs said...

That picture is just amazing.

@allison- I was thinking the exact same thing.

[Ain't nothing wrong with another unity song]

debrisslide said...

Finally was able to donate.

BURIES IT = HOLY SHIT.

coffeytalk said...

If you are 21 and older, you can drink (truthfact!). If you are under 21, you are still allowed to attend. My bartender buddy makes a mean Shirley Temple.

BlacknGold66 said...

God Damnit I love this woman.

And Hip... you know I'm still a member of your church right?


Fuck it. I'm looking at hotels for the night of the 23rd in Pittsburgh. Christmas Eve isn't a big deal until nighttime. Buries It Foundation is a big deal ALL the time.


(P.S. Thanks for stealing my "Buries It Foundation" slogan Annie!! Haha... USE THAT SHIT UP!! WOOOOO!)

Allison said...

@chubs- i am in the process of making an amazing photoshop

or a decent one since im working with a half assed version of it.

but it will still be faboulous

Allison said...

@coffey talk, haha, thats ok I was made a nice offer for mariomoneyraiserblog 2.0 (if i can make it) by a cblogger that shall ramain annonymous. It's all good.
I'll be lookin forward to thoes "mean shirley temples"


btw, thoes things are way underrated... im pretty sure ill still be drinking thoes at 35!

Flyer Hater said...

Does Mario Lemieux age?

Flyer Hater said...

I really hope we play Montreal in the playoffs.

fleuryous said...

I was going to say, FH...he looks great.

Congratulations, Sven--that's awesome!

Akus, from the previous post...I just got my jersey this week, so I haven't had a chance to wear it! Why do you ask?

The Goon Blogger said...

Drinking the Diet Coke. Buries It is IN and STAYING IN the best shape of his life.

Vanessa said...

@ Allison- thanks. I just got back from the burgh a couple weeks ago. I was in attendance for Sid's hat trick against the devils. I would totally come, but I don't think I could drive like 5 hours through Ohio twice in a 30 day time frame. It sounds like you know how craptastic those drives can be. Devotion is the name of the game.

I'm off to strategize on Tomb Raider...

Have a good Friday night, everyone.

KaylaJ said...

he ages like wine.

fleuryous said...

Well, voting for AO didn't work, for some reason...

but the gap is definitely closing between MAF and Price.


Let's keep it up, guys...

Allison said...

so I was completly and utterly confused when I checked the avs score and saw that P Dupuis had a penalty... WHAT?
upon further investigation, it is some dude named Phillipe Dupuis. He's also from Laval, Quebec.(not that that means much, but still) What do you think the chances are that he's pascal's bro?
if so, what a week for their parents...one son with the first career hattrick, and the other gets called up from the minors for his first NHL game.

KaylaJ said...

it is his brother.

Stoosh said...

It figures that asking Caps fans to pull their weight on something like supporting their own player turned out to be a colossal disappointment.

Then again, the Caps are the team whose owners institute a block on the sale of tickets over the phone to people calling from a 412 or 724 area code because they were being outdrawn by Pens fans in their own building.

Stephanie B. said...

BEST.PICTURE.OF.LIFE.



SERIOUSLY. Bravo, Lowell and tPB.




@ Flyer Hater - He is ageless.
He looks fab-u-lous.
Mario - what a human.

Whistler said...

My girlfriend (who is a big Devils fan) says that If I call Zajac Pat Sajak one more time I'm not getting anymore sex..

All I say to that is..

"Can I buy a vowel please?!?"

Annie said...

Coffeytalk and BNG66, you are good, good, good people.

Lowell, that picture is so awesome it made me feel a few tingly-jingly's downstairs...

[Sid/Malkin/Ovie/Letang/Orpik/Fleury]

[Iginla/Getzlaf/Kane/Campbell/Phaneuf/Nabokov]

Allison said...

@whistler-
you
are
my
hero

meecrofilm said...

Whistler,

You gotta stand up for what's right. Job the hell out of the Devils.

She'll probably end up missing sex more than you anyway, so. win-win. woooooooo

fleuryous said...

So...can we officially make June 6 Mario Lemieux Day?

Just wondering...

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Buries it signing a Buries It jersey is awesome.

Nice work.

dying alive said...

Aw man, is that a home game? Can we do something like this for an away game plz? I have yet to be able to attend a tPB event.

* I'll still donate, though, so I'm not a d-bag.

bayonetwork said...

that picture came from inside the Ark of the Covenant.

its so incredible, it killed all the nazi's in Indiana Jones.

meecrofilm said...

As practice wound down, several players engaged in strip hockey -- you don't score on a breakaway from the blue line, you take something off; you score, you get to put something back on. The clear loser was defenseman Kris Letang, who eventually was trying to score on one skate -- his left foot was bare -- and was also without his helmet, gloves, jersey and upper-body pads.

I bet the ladies would have liked to have been at that practice =P

Allison said...

Operation Ovie

Do it.

Allison said...

MEECROFILM FTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

I can't lie, I might pay all the money to my name to have seen that... jesus christ, Kris Letang... it had to be Kris Letang.

Pictures MUST surface.

johnnylaw said...

Awesome Buries It pic. In honor of the game vs. the Cryers tomorrow (which I'll be attending), I propose using the Malkin PS where he's digging graves of those jokes from Philly. I've got some black and gold M&Ms that my mom gave me when I was home at thanksgiving, so I might just hand them out as some free candy. Should be a hell of a game, Pens coming of a 9-2 cornholing and the Cryers coming off a 4 goal comeback. I hope my seats are good enough where I can toss some M&Ms at the douchebags who sit behind the goal with some of the gayest signs ever (no offense, Charlie).

meecrofilm said...

Allison,

"Kris Letang... it had to be Kris Letang.
Pictures MUST surface."


I lol'd. Sorry for the accidental torture. I sometimes forgot the power that is a mental image of a shirtless Kris Letang.

johnnylaw said...

And the fundraiser sounds like a tits event, I can even bring my bro and sis and legally buy them some oat sodas. Hopefully Buries It can make a special guest appearance after the game against TB is over.

Gentlemen:

Single finest blog photo ever.

I am in awe.

[In ABQ]

Allison said...

@meecrofilm-
damn, I don't know what it is, but there is something about Kris Letang that melts me to a heaping pile of puckbunny. There I said it.

I just cannot help myself. Meecrofilm, it is the power of any mental picture of Kris Letang, shirtless of not. He is the one, and only, hockey player I have ever been attracted to on this level. I think it's a sickness.

Allison said...

*or* not of. See, I can't even type correctly when his name is in the sentence.

meecrofilm said...

This seems to be borderline unhealthy you know. I recommend professional help. I used to minor in Psychology before I changed it, so I obviously have a basic grasp of it. Anything for a fellow c-blogger.

For starters, here and here are some good websites with good information on how to get you on the right track.

Stoosh said...

@ Allison -

Maybe it's the fact that it's 1:37 AM or maybe it's the sheer, brutal honesty in the way it was said, but I just laughed out loud at "heaping pile of puckbunny".

I think Scuderi does the same thing to a select few c-bloggers of the male gender as well. :)

woooooooooooo

johnnylaw said...

I have to agree, "heaping pile of puckbunny" is one of the funnier posts of recent memory. Right up there with "George Micheal chooses coke and balls."

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Ahhh...Scudsie

Allison and Vanessa and any other of the female persuasion...you come here, you all get +100 great human points...coolness and yinz go together like Danny Potash and shaving cream pie sneak-attacks

G'night c-blog


Buries It signing a Buries It jersey...Fuckin' A

Allison said...

@meecrofilm- it's a really good thing that no body just heard the sound that came out of my mouth when I clicked on that second link.

@stoosh and johnnylaw-I'm glad that my patheticness can amuse you lol.

and stoosh, if I were male, I would be completely and unequivocally RAGING homosexual for letang, just like some men here are gay for scuds.

coffeytalk said...

dying alive,

come AFTER the game.

for realz.

meecrofilm said...

coffeytalk,

I have this "friend" that may be able to make it. Now my "friend" will be 21 in January. So, if he is able to make it, you'd let it slide..... right?

The Goon Blogger said...

@Allison and stoosh

I'm a total Rob Scuderi male puck bunny. Have you SEEN that jawline? Unreal.

Anyhoo....

So, I've asked this before, and I think I got a result but I just didn't follow up on it because I'm an ass, so I'm asking again. I want to watch KHL games. Specifically my boy Aleksey Morozov and the Kazan Ak-Bars. Any leads?

Stoosh said...

@ Allison -

Back when I was a Canucks fan, I probably felt about Pavel Bure the same way some male c-bloggers feel about Scuds. That, of course, was back when Bure was a 60-goal scoring, free-wheeling badass who wasn't afraid to throw the mother of all elbows.

Unfortunately, he whined and cried and kicked and screamed his way out of Vancouver a couple of years later, which wasn't all that bad because it cemented me as a Pens fan for good in the mid-1990s.

Kat said...

@ Allison, don't worry, you are definitely not alone in the Letang love. I remember watching that stick making video and thinking to myself that I could watch that man use power tools all day.

Damn, one day I will be able to attend a c-blog event if I have to fly myself down to the burgh. I've always wanted to go to a game at Mellon. Perhaps it's something to shoot for. But I will be looking to donate something to the cause.

Allison said...

@Kat-
OMG I was thinking the same thing about power tools as well!! Were you worried too that he wasn't wearing eye protection? I just wanted to give him goggles, so he didn't hurt himelf.

and you NEED to go to the Mellon before it closes.
I think there should be a mass organized event by the Pittsburgh Penguins to pay the way for out of area fans to go to a game in Pittsburgh. Best experiance of my life.

and Meecro, I think I need more "medicine'... you got anything else? :)

Kat said...

@ Allison, something for your illness...hold tight.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BkT6UG0IdI&feature=related

And seriously, I need to see the PEns play. I still haven't been to a Kings game out here. It's still hard to believe LA has a real hockey team. Sort of. But I plan on going soon. I swear, 2 years of the Kings playing in the burgh, they need to make it out here next season or I'm sending an angry letter to the scheduling people.

Allison said...

and I just remembered I meant to explain my photoshop I posted earlier, cause I realize that it would make no sense if you didn't know what it was in reference to. That's an album cover of a band called Operation Ivy, also known as Op Ivy, and somebody in cblog called this voting for Ovechkin think Op Ovie before and the idea popped into my head.

meecrofilm said...

Allison,

Can I assume your email is "Allison@gmail.com" ?

I made just a little something for you, haha.

Until then, some heat of the moment medicine. Be careful not to overdose. This stuff can be very dangerous when not used properly.

The Goon Blogger said...

@Allison

You have somehow endeared yourself to me even further with your Ska/Punk rock reference.

meecrofilm said...

@Kat,

1:02 mark. Dear God. I can barely handle that. I think you may be responsible for killing Allison.

@Allison.

I always thought "Knowledge" was a great song. And the PS was a great idea. Even though the actually thing failed miserably, haha.

Allison said...

@meecrofilm- it's actually Allison6687@gmail.com i think.
at least thats the one i use for blogger.

@goon- cool:)
I'm still tripin on the fact that you're travis who I used to talk to, like, years ago on facebook. It's a small Pens world.
Actually I'm more suprised I remembered you, but it's probably b/c you were 1 of maybe 5 people who i actually read their posts cause you had a brain.

Kat said...

@ meecro, haha. Yes, it is a lot to handle, what with the French and the selective camera angles. I hope she's ok.

The Goon Blogger said...

@Allison

I'm more baffled you pinned me based on the picture of Gino I have on my icon.

FB is basically mud city now for Pens discussion. It's a SLIGHT, SLIGHT, step above LGP. Everyone was throwing Sabu under the bus after the Devils loss.

Allison said...

@kat and meecro, I'm not sure I am ok...
WAY too much to handle
What the hell was that? Cause it looked like straight up porn to me.


Seriously, how is it that god creates people that look like that, and then doesn't let them live by me? THERE IS NO JUSTICE.

that ass shot, he needs to model or something...I'm dying right now, I have not stopped replaying that video!!!!

I still to this day have no idea how I didn't rape him when I got his autograph. I do remember the fat that I did not breath the entire time I was in his presence

Allison said...

*fact

The Goon Blogger said...

Haha, this is just ridiculous to read. Oh to be French and a hockey player...

Kat said...

@ Allison, glad I could be of service. That's what I get for random youtubeing...

Allison said...

@goon-
i have no idea how i did either, but i do have a seriously photographic memory. for emapmle, i can read a book, and then a year later go looking for an exerpt, and i know to look near the top of the left page midway through the book. yea, its weird.

anyway, you just endeared yourself further to me by spelling it Gino. i wonder whatever happened to staff spelling it that way. I remember my first ever contrabution to tPB, they posted it and said they were changing the way they spelled it. oh, well i don't really care... im too sick with Letang obsesion.

dhudzin said...

oh jesus. GO PENS.

Allison said...

fuck spelling, it's too late to care

@ meecro-
you are officially THE GREATEST human being that EVER existed (after letang of course)

omg... *cblog hug*

im dying... that is the most incredible email i have ever recieved

"Late night Letang"
i love you


i need to teach gymnastics at 8 in the morning, but theres no way in hell im tearing my eyes away from what you sent me to go sleep.

Kat said...

I'm afraid to know what was sent. I bet it was Letangtastic though.

Allison are we Facebook friends?

We should be. Hit me up

meecrofilm said...

Allison,
Glad you liked it so much! Just doing my best to help out a fellow c-blogger, haha. Maybe I can make it as an english major after all... I think Kris Letang brings out the best in all of us.

Goddamn, if I keep on talking to you I'M gonna start having a legitimate "thing" for him. This can't be healthy.

Allison said...

@kat-all you gotta do is confirm (on FB).
and it was so fucking epic, you have no clue

@meecro- admit it, you now have a slight man crush (i could tell by that oh so sexual paragraph you sent me) ...it's ok, it's kris letang. you can be the irst member of the gay for letang club. I'm sorry my influence is so strong, blame it on Letang's sheer awesomeness. And i feel the need to repay you by sending you some amzing youtube of your favorite player... who is it?

meecrofilm said...

Allison,
You're right, I think i actually do... geez.

Really, no repayment is necessary. But if you feel the need to do something... Teemu Selanne has always been one of my faves for as long as I can remember anything at all hockey. That's all I'm gonna say ; )

Allison said...

meecro, i'm gonna see what i can dig up on youtube, even though you've probably watched them all. i know there's one in my favorites of him, but i guarantee you've seen the one with the ledgendary goal celebration, so im gonna have to look harder. sorry i don't have mad skillz like you with making cool shit.

and btw, what an odd name to throw out there, deff not expecting selanne.

Allison said...

again, fuck spelling
@meero-
so, you like 'em a little rough? a little undisiplined?

you like 'em hungry? with stuffed animals?

battered and bruised

or do you prefer them, sensitive, emotional, and driven?

Allison said...

oh, and did you kow he calls his three children yahoos?

meecrofilm said...

Allison,
I actually haven't seen any of those videos before.

The first one actually did turn me on a bit. The commercial with the panda literally changed my life... And that puffy jaw was pure sexy.

I had read about the special hattrick before, but hadn't seen that little feature on it, so thanks for that. That whole incident is why he is a greater human being than I'll ever be.

And if I ever have kids, you can take it to the bank that though their birth cirtificates may have 'normal' names on them, i'll be calling those little yahoos "yahoos" every hour of every day. That it just too awesome.

Yeah, when I was little I guess I was drawn to the Mighty Ducks, just cause they were the Mighty Ducks, or something. And Selanne was a speedy right-handed sniper, which I can relate too (the right-handed part. Not the sniper part), had a sweet name, was real exciting to watch, and overall was just a nice guy. So yeah. Always've rooted for him ever since.

And you think you have it bad with Tanger.... believe me, it's even worse when they're married.

Allison said...

well, i'm glad you're still up to enjoy them.

at least im not the only syko still up at this hour...love college.

and i do have it bad for tanger, i dont know what i'll do when he gets married. well, it depends, cause some of the players that i really like, I'm just happy for them when they have their little families, ie: sykora. and satan, and cooke etc to see them talk about their kids, I'm just glad they're happy. as long as he doesnt fall for some golddigging skank with 5 stds, i think i'll be ok. as long as he's happy... at least thats what i'll keep telling myself.

and we're totally and obnoxiously dominating cblog tonight, but i don't feel too bad cause who else is gonna be up to see it?

Mario does not age. In fact, he doesn't look any different from his first retirement in 97.

Mario signing the BURIES IT jersey = what a sight. And is that a smile from him as he's signing? I'm just wondering...Mario: possible tPb reader?

ASGblog
AO = really not gaining much, if at all. 220k out of third. Step on up, people.
Orpik = 15k, still 45k away from the leaderboard. Letang has passed Orpik with almost 17k. I'm still voting for both.

Meecro and Allison - you two make me feel old with the Selanne discussion. Meecro especially, with this comment...

Yeah, when I was little I guess I was drawn to the Mighty Ducks, just cause they were the Mighty Ducks, or something. And Selanne was a speedy right-handed sniper, which I can relate too...

I always think it's funny to read stuff like this because it makes me realize how long I've been watching this great sport.

I've always associated Pavel Bure with the Canucks. There are some fans who only remember him as a Ranger.

Conversely, I've always associated Mark Messier with the Rangers and then the Oilers - even though he played for the Oilers long before he played for the Rangers.

I'll always associate Jagr with the Pens. In fact, when I watched that #68 skate around in a Caps or Rangers sweater, it never felt like I was watching the same Jagr I'd cheered for just a couple of years earlier.

With Selanne, I've always associated him with Winnipeg. He was the reason I loved to use the Jets on NHL '94. Winnipeg Teemu and Anaheim Teemu are almost two completely different players to me. I can watch Anaheim Teemu and forget that this is the same guy who I used to watch fly up and down that old Winnipeg Arena in NHL2Night highlights in the mid-1990s, wearing that bright white Jets jersey. It's not like his game has changed at all...it really hasn't. For some reason, I just always identify him wit the Jets first.

So the Ovie thing has gone dry, whatev.

But guys and girls, think about what we could still do.

1st, Fleury is less than 100,000 votes away from catching Price.

2nd, Getting Letang and Orpik into the starter positions can no longer be done, but think about what we still could do. They are both less than 50,000 out of the top 10. Why is the top 10 important? Well thats what they show on the results page. Think about how cool that would be for them I mean, that would be awesome to at least get them on the board and get them some of the recognition they deserve.

C'mon Cbloggers. There is no reason why the Pens can't still dominate the ASG.
DO IT.

Allison, skank girlfriends are the worst. Surely you're so adorable that you can turn any NHL man away from his skank of choice. ;D

Woo Connor James.

Happy 1PM game everyone. Hangovers?

Is Crapourin in net?

fleuryous said...

FH--I think so. At least, that's what it says on the website.

meg said...

morning cbloggers .. anyone know the feed for the game?

Allison said...

@stoosh- sorry for making you feel your age... I remember about two seasons ago when the players being drafted started to be my age... it was the begining of a new era for me as a hockey fan. it blows my mind completly when I see kids younger than me playing in the nhl...at what age will that stop?

(Paval Bure)"There are some fans who only remember him as a Ranger."- Guilty. actually I used to have a picture of him in a Florida uniform, but that dosen't count cause I don't remember watching him play there.

And if I told you I don't remember Winipeg, that would probably make you feel even older. So I won't mention that, ir the fact that I don't remember Hartford or Quebec either. oops


@debris, I'm glad you have the confidence in my antiskank powers :)

c-blog-

I cannot let underagers "slide" at Festivus. They are more than welcome to attend but you must be 21 and have ID to drink. Otherwise it's called breaking the law. So yes, please come, but don't be a dick. This is an event for charity, dudes. Not a frat party.


to answer another question, yes I am Annie from Friday Nite Improvs.

go pens.

debrisslide said...

Anyone have a stream of the game? I'm letting Kim have the FSN hookup that we got and it is not listed on atdhe.net.

Allison said...
