Some Quick Crap

...Carolina and New Jersey on Versus tonight...

...NHL general managers are convening in Toronto to discuss some things...

  • Possible scheduling changes
  • Malkin's court date on November 15
  • GMs working closer to get any deals done
  • Telling the Flyers to phone in the rest of their season
...Flyers Jeff Carter out six weeks with ankle injury...and they recalled Nedved...

...Ilya Kovalchuk had a hat trick last night for the Thrashers. I was watching the game on Versus. Does anyone remember last year when Paul Steigerwald was furious at the goal horn operator in Atlanta's Philips Arena?? I remember hearing the Steigerwald clip on WDVE the next morning and being in tears...

...Baby Pens update: They are 9-2-0 and have the second-best record in the AHL. Here is an excellent WBS Pens blog: Penguins Insider

...And finally...our friends at the Dear Trendy Hockey Fan Girls -- Die Facebook Group will love these pictures that commenters Dennis and Julie provided us:


Oh wow. That's pretty gay.


If I ever see a girl wearing this, she can expect a punch in the ovaries.
If I ever see a guy wearing this, well, I don't even know.

is that how the rumored new-look reebok uniforms will be next year?? minus the pink, of course.

Dennis said...

Yup, Buffalo is the first team to go to them but it's been rumored that every team will get new jerseys next year based off of this years All-Star game jersey template.

Some teams' changes will be much more noticable than others.

Thanks Kelli.

We're really floored by how popular the Pensblog has gotten.

We even received a kind-hearted e-mail from FSN's Dan Potash on Tuesday.

I just want to say for the record that i would never wear that pink thing for the simple fact that they are hideous. They are making these for all sports. I've seen this in football & baseball pink ugliness as well. I wont even wear the girlie jersey's in the regular colors. Regular old replica for me please...

Brian said...

Adam, does this mean Dan Potash jokes are off limits now? :(

Anonymous said...

ha, what did potash say or you do not want to discuss it?

also, what was steigerwald's whole beef with the air-horn?

sounds rather interesting

Adam said...

Loralei, that's why you are the man...err the woman.

Haha. Dan Potash jokes are still not off-limits, but he probably wanted it to be a personal e-mail. Sorry fellas.

We did, however, offer to do a Q & A session with him for the blog. Hopefully, we get a return e-mail on Wednesday.

After a goal, the Thrashers goal horn blares for about 8 seconds. Then, it follows up with short horn bursts, for however many goals they've scored.
The Pens gave up six or seven goals in a game, and Staggy was irate when they blasted the horn for like 10 seconds, then did about six quick bursts after it.

i'd buy my ex-gf that jersey just so you could punch her in the stomach.

Oh, my eyes!! That pink is seared into my brain. Must. Have. Beer. Now. Good think I can walk across the street to the grocery store and buy one bottle -- who am I kidding, six pack (but it is refreshing to know I could get one bottle if I wanted).

As bad as the pink is, the purple is even worse. The thing is, you can never really tell which team the wearer is supporting. The shirts all look alike. This "fashion" trend must die (along with the trendy hockey fan girls). Seriously, the only time the pastel colors have worked is with the San Diego Chargers powder blue. That truly is a classic look.

ex-pat Pittsburgh girl said...

Sorry for the typo -- should be "thing" not "think". And I haven't even cracked the beer yet. Must be the elections returns affecting my brain.

Adam said...

I love the powder blue chargers uniforms.

Yea, you can just get up and walk to the grocery store and 10:30 at night and buy beer. Why don't you rub it in a little more in our Pennsylvanian faces??
hahaha.

EmDubs said...

Why did you have to show me those jerseys again? Those are the exact ones I left a comment about the other day that are the only option for women. I was finally starting to put it behind me. The make me want to poke my eyes out. Awful, just awful.

ex-pat Pittsburgh girl said...

Plus, I get a nickel everytime I return a bottle...sorry. So long as PA gets millions of dollars to the state coffers under the current system, you will never see a change in PA. You will sooner be able to buy less than a case at a distributor that be able to buy a six pack at the 7-11.

If I ever see a girl wearing this, she can expect a punch in the ovaries.

Thank you for that.
The pink jerseys are worse then people wearing steelers crap to pens games.

Now if we could only get rid of the cheerleaders...
