PRESS CONFERENCE



Pensblog readers, esteemed members of the press, we are pleased to announce
that 500 WWGRD wristbands are now in our possession.


We'll now take your questions.


Hey, yo. When are you mailing these?

WEDNESDAY 10:00-11:00 AM


Hey, fellas. Why'd it take so long to get them delivered?

THE COMPANY WE WERE WORKING WITH DECLINED TO TELL US
THAT THE WRISTBANDS WOULD BE MANUFACTURED OVERSEAS.



Any word on Steeler wristbands?

GO TO HELL


Hey, guys. Jim Gray.
There are reports that you've been using performance-enhancing drugs to maintain the blog.

WHAT


Anything we should know about the wristbands?

YOU'LL EXPERIENCE A NUMBING SENSATION IN YOUR HAND.
NEARBY HOUSEHOLD PETS PISS THEMSELVES.


Meow


Smizik here.
You guys have no confirmation system for people who have bought wristbands.
How do we know who's getting wristbands sent to them in this batch of 500?

IF YOU SENT US SOMETHING THROUGH PayPal, WE RECEIVED IT.
SIMPLE AS THAT. TAKE IT TO THE BANK.
IF YOU GOT THE PayPal E-MAL WRONG, YOU'RE A JOKE.

IF YOU SENT MONEY IN THE MAIL, WE HAVE NO WAY TO MATCH E-MAIL ADDRESSES TO PEOPLE WHO SENT US MONEY, THEREFORE NO CONFIRMATION.

THE ORDERS WERE TAKEN FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.

HERE IS A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO WILL BE GETTING WRISTBANDS IN THIS FIRST BATCH. [ List ]

IF THERE'S ANY CONFUSION, OR IF ANYONE THINKS THEY GOT THEIR ORDER IN EARLY AND GOT JOBBED, E-MAIL US.


Not good enough.

EAT US. WE'RE DOING WHAT WE CAN.


Smizik, you're a joke.

Guys, do you have more wristbands on the way to fill every order you've received?

YES, WE DO. THE NEXT BATCH OF WRISTBANDS IS COMING BETWEEN NOVEMBER 7th and 12th.


We've heard that before.


Can it Smizik.

Pensblog, have you set aside any wristbands for media members?

YES, WE HAVE SET ASIDE WRISTBANDS FOR MEMBERS OF FSN AND ESPN RADIO -- MEDIA FACTIONS THAT WE KNOW MENTIONED THE WRISTBANDS.


I don't want one.


Your mom does.


Who let Fedko in here?


SKKKKKKKKEEEEEOOOOORRRRESSSSS!!!!!!!!


Fedko needs jobbed. Big-time.





Guys, are you gonna have another batch ready for the playoffs?

PLAYOFFS? PLAYOFFS?! YOU WANT TO TALK PLAYOFFS?!
WE JUST HOPE WE CAN WIN A GAME.

Absolutely fantastic!

Loved the Emrick reference...that was awesome.

Nice dig on WPXI and their Steeler obsession.

Fleury29 said...

I love The Pensblog. Thanks, guys!

Oh, and thanks to the mysterious Ted D. who bankrolled this whole thing.

Fleury29 said...

Where'd you get the Roberts name/number t-shirt? I've never seen one of those and they aren't at pittsburghpenguins.com.

This is, however. An awesome shirt but $50? Are they crazy? Fuck that noise.

Erica said...

Wooo, I can wait until I get my wristband!

fleury29 - They have the name/number t-shirts at Dick's Sporting Goods, PenStation in the Mellon, and I've seen them at a few other sports stores. I don't think I've seen them online anywhere though...

Lady Jaye said...

fleury29 > you can get them at the Mellon. I got one after the last game ;)

Can't wait to wear my wrist band with my Roberts shirt!!

DarkStar said...

Amazing.. they look better than i thought they would.

Unfortunately i'll be waiting for the second batch. Can't wait..

Staff said...

STEIMES -- Hopefully the Mitch Hedberg reference is a nod to the one we did pertaining to Jagr losing his teeth.

T.A.F.K.A.T.B. -- PensStation at the Arena. Woooooooo.

ANON -- Yes, one is set aside for Roberts.
It's the smallest thing he'll ever sign.

DARKSTAR -- Yeah, we were nervous about how they were gonna look.
Very impressed and pumped.

Guys,

In the words of Extreme...

More than words.


Thanks!!

Then, when I arrive in Pittsburgh on February 7th, my first stop after checking into the hotel and grabbing lunch at Eat'N Park will be PensStation... for a Gary Roberts t-shirt and a Fleury jersey.

Do the jerseys they're selling in PensStation right now have the 250th anniversary patch or am I going to have to buy that separately?

Excited about the wristbands. They look fantastic. My Penguins hoodie should be coming back from getting the zipper fixed around the same time the W.W.G.R.D? wristband arrives. Good times.

  This is the greatest night of my life.

Malkinian said...

LMAO that press conference was awesome. You guys outdid yourselves again. Anxious for recap tmrw. Maybe the best all-around game we've played all year, especially from the 2 heavy hitters. Let's Go Pens!!

Adrienne said...

Niiiiice!! We got a clutch win and bracelets! I'm so excited now :)

Pensblog ever turning shitty days into fantastic ones. <3

Stoosh said...

Fleury29,

Might have to go with the Roberts #10 T-shirt myself next time I venture down to Mellon. The numbers are starting to crack on my Armstrong one that I got last year because I've worn it and run it through the laundry so much. Mrs. Stoosh has the Army and Crosby t-shirts and I think either Malkin or Fleury may be next on her list.

And yes, the new RBK jerseys being sold at PenStation have the #250 patch on them. The new jerseys are sharp when you see them in person. I'm still getting used to them...I'm a bit old-school and I've always liked the baggy jerseys. I've also got the physique of a present-day Jerome Bettis, so the old jerseys were nice like that, too. But the new ones aren't bad at all.

Steimes said...

I second the question about the 250 patch and the availability of a certain number 25 jersey.

karri said...

Hey guys...AWESOME!

Thanks, all of you involved, for the hard work you put into this. You rock!

A friend put my order in with hers...can't wait to get them.

fleury29 - I know someone who got their Roberts T-shirt at Dicks...$19.99...they also have many others...

Spencemo said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Pens win AND WWGRD bracelets are going to be on the way today! I almost can't contain my excitement!

Tee said...

The world is not prepared for the shitstorm of awesomeness being unleashed on it.

luvnmypens said...

I got a Whitney and a Roberts tee at Pens Station last home game. They had all sizes in the both tees, but I was disappoianted that they did not have a medium in an Eaton tee. All they had was XL and XXL in the #3. That is my next purchase for sure.

I now have... Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Christensen, 2 Talbots (bought a lg cuz I couldnt find a med at first), Roberts and Whitney.

As far as the 250 patch, they also sell those at the games for like $7.00.

THAT WAS A CLASSIC POST! EFF BOB SMIZIK!!!

Just thought I'd pass this along... "WWGRD" is mentioned in Hockey News magazine. It reads:

A sign at Mellon Arena simply reads "WWGRD?" as if to suggest all Penguins players should ask themselves, "What would Gary Roberts do?" when faced with adversity.
And they do.

Captain Sidney Crosby is the heart of the Penguins, but Roberts is their soul. After all, how many other 41-year-olds would be the first player to join a scrum in defense of Crosby, as Roberts did in a recent game against Montreal?

Roberts is a man of few words: the still rambunctious left winger prefers to let his actions speak for him. And they do on the ice with his rugged, in-your-face play; and on the ice, with a grueling conditioning regimen.

"Gary is a warrior," said center Jordan Staal. "That is the only way you can describe him."


If only they would have mentioned the bracelets....but nevertheless, more respect for the beast.

Snoopyjobber seems to be a Flair fan, and again if the Penbsblog calls some one a dick, so does she.
