KC and JoJo Suck, Too

NOTE: BE CAREFUL IN THE COMMENTS SECTION.
THERE'S SOME IRATE KANSAS CITY FANS THROWING QUESTIONABLE LANGUAGE AROUND.
GOOD TIMES.

We'll hit you guys up with some news and crap from the last couple days and then get to today's games.

...We were hungover today, and it felt terrible. But imagine how baseball fans everywhere felt in 1983 when Kansas City Royals first baseman George Brett disgraced the game of baseball by cheating...

Picture: George "The Cheater" Brett reacts to the news of Isle of Capri not getting the slots license.

...Pens' Nils Ekman getting an MRI today...

...Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger suffers a broken foot...

...The Ducks also made some news by acquiring ex-Pen Sebastien Caron...

Caron was responsible for giving us this gem:

...ESPN does their 2006 NHL year in review...

...Over the weekend, Phoenix crushed San Jose 8-0 despite being out-shot 40-26...
-- Janet took the over in that one, I bet...

................................
GAMES

--- Speaking of Phoenix, they are on fire. They have now won three straight. They beat Washington today 3-2...

--- Ray Emery allowed Marian Hossa to score 1:33 into overtime to give Atlanta a 3-2 victory over Ottawa.
...Ray Emery giving up this goal is the biggest sports choke since Priest Holmes' third quarter fumble against the Indianapolis Colts in the 2003 AFC Divisional playoffs...


--- Buffalo beats the Islanders today, 3-1.
Thank you, Buffalo. You have helped the Atlantic Division.
...just like first base umpire Don Denkinger helped the Kansas City Royals win the 1985 World Series Championship with the worst call in professional sports history.

Safe?

--- Colorado beat Nashville tonight, 5-3. It's a Western Conference game involving a has-been and a team that is very much overrated. Care.
...The attendance at this game was low, but it's no comparison to the number of people turning out to see Kansas City Explorers tennis matches.

Don't worry; they're professionals.

--- Boston and Toronto playing the "late game" at 7:00 tonight on VERSUS. Rose Bowl is boring; flip to Versus...

This is the worst blog ever. Pittsburgh does not deserve a midget league hockey team. You people don't even support the Penguins. We have a better town, a better arena and much more loyal fans.

Adam said...

you're telling people that exclusively run a reasonably in-depth Penguins blog that they don't support the team.

Okay.

Scott said...

Fuck that last commenter...if ur talkin bout KC ur gettin shit on this week in Indy...i mite go to the game tomorrow so if i see a guy with a video camera ill say hi and fuck KC lol

Scott said...

Nice comeback Adam...this dude has to be hungover from last nite

Derek said...

"You people don't even support the Penguins"

Facts to support?

Bake said...

You're right, Kansas City is such a great town. We don't deserve a midget league hockey team, yet our midget hockey teams have been producing NHL worthy talent for the past 10 years. If you were even a hockey fan, you would know that no one even calls it midget league hockey. Do you even know what a blue line is? Yes, your arena is better because ours is over 30 years old. That's why we're getting a new one so that we can keep our team here. Your fans are so loyal, you're right. Wait a second, what exactly are your fans loyal to?

I officially declare your comment as completely idiotic, moronic and outlandish. Please find a new site and a new group of people to bore and piss off with your obvious lack of intelligence.

Dennis said...

To the anony. commenter:

Where's your KC Chiefs blog? Please share it, we'd love to see it.

Or maybe you have one for the Royals instead.

You Pittsburgh people are retarded.
Hope you have fun sitting at home watching the NFL playoffs.

Ok Big Derek, you want your fucking support:

The Penguins getting Crosby is the worst thing for hockey, not the best. This franchise has had two of the best players in history, Lemieux and Jagr. The Penguins have won two Cups and are one of two franchises to come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series. Here we are in 2006, and they can't fill the building, despite having two of the best young hockey players around (Crosby and Malkin). They don't deserve to keep the franchise. Want proof: Flyers, Dec. 13 (attendance: 14,150, interstate rivals); Florida, Dec. 5 (12,501); Boston, Nov. 20 (16,958); Rangers, Nov. 18 (16,737).

Thats my story bitches.

Adam said...

Oh, hey. If anyone wants to read the anonymous commenter's recent paragraph in context, just go to this site where he copied and pasted it from:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/columns/story?columnist=buccigross_john&id=2706272

I was gonna say you don't know your Penguins history, but I guess "Ed from Vancouver" doesn't.

The Pens have never come back from 3-0.
They let the Islanders do it back in 1975.

We can't hear your comments about the NFL playoffs because we have our five Super Bowl rings in our ears.

Oh, and the Mellon Arena capacity is 17,383. Those games that you mentioned drew over 16,000....shut up.

Whatever Pensblog, you guys are clueless when it comes to hockey. Your not funny.KC will be a much better home to the Pens. You can't even sell out games. We sell out every Chiefs game.

You can have your 5 super bowls,and 1 stanley cup. The Pens should of never have beaten the Hawks.

Derek said...

Yea should never beaten the Hawks in 4 straight. I have been waiting for someone like you to come along on the Internet for awhile.

Adam said...

Chiefs sell out every game cause there's nothing else to do in Kansas City...other than your sister.

Anonymous said...

OK the fact that you are using NFL fact to support your hockey bias is alone crap.

Just shut up about your chiefs and selling out that building, we have been selling out football stadiums since before you were born.

If you want to argue hockey then argue hockey and not you stupid f'ing chiefs.

Ok Will,

How many sellouts did the Pens have this year? Not many.

You people do not deserve a team.

Oh, and by the way? We have two Stanley Cups.

Sweet Jesus, I hope these people don't get a hockey team.

I don't count the first stanley cup, because it was fixed..

What? This is surreal.

Nick said...

hey remember when pittsburgh had an nhl team in the 70's but couldnt sell season tickets so it moved after 2 years? oh wait that was kansas city

the first cup was fixed? what are you talking about?

Kansas City is the worst city in North America... no one even knows where it is..the cheifs will get blown out of the water by the Colts the Royals will finish last in the MLB...yeah good city of yours there....POS to me. if i visit KC id kill myself cause that city...SUCKS. pens fans are beter than all KC fans combined...Cheifs would get demolished by the Steelers, ROyals by the pirates and any KCer by a Pittsburgh native

(from PITTSBURGH)

I've been to Kansas City, and you're not missin much if you hook up with his sister.

You can't even get your facts straight. We have two cups and any game close to 15,000 I would call a fucking success. I've been to 3 sellout games already this year. We've got more heart and tradition in our aging building than your entire fucking state.

Screw you and your fucking city. We support and love our city and team. We all also love something else now, HATING KANSAS CITY. Don't piss us off.

loralei said...

LOL I love this. Like Jerry Springer blog style. We do all realize that anonymous is a 12 year old that is up past his bedtime right?

Anywho, I hate to break it to you anonymous, but even if the Pens leave Pittsburgh (which they wont --I chose to believe they will stay) there is no way the NHL will approve a move to Kansas City. Its not a proven market, which is their number one priority in awarding a franchise to a city. Its going to be Winnipeg. If they do award it to a "sunny" city its extremely unlikely that they (i.e. the NHL & Mario & CO.) will chose Kansas City over Vegas. To quote the multifacited P. Diddy Puffy Daddy Diddy, "its all about the benjimans baby."

Crosby begs to differ with you regarding fan support. This is what he had to say in a recent interview
http://ottawasun.com/Sports/Hockey/2006/12/31/3097005-sun.html


Q. Why should the Penguins stay in Pittsburgh when a Canadian city would support them just as much, if not more?

Because they deserve a team here. The fans have done their part, they come out whether we're in the bottom of the standings or when we're playing well, they're behind us. They've been through a lot of tough times and they deserve a team. We want to be the ones playing in front of them during the good times. Hopefully, that's the way it turns out.

Nice try anonymous shitsburgher! Crosby doesn't want to stay in shitsburgh! He wants to come to the greatest city in the world Kansas City! We'll actually support him here! We'll have at least double the attendance of the Kansas City Explorers at every game! Not to mention I'd love to see Crosby's sweet ass 82 nights a year at the Sprint Center!

Jon said...

To "anonymous," u remind me of "skivail" on espn's pens message board...yes yes, KC is great, they would support a hockey team, yadda yadda. Maybe you're right. I think i would like to see u get a team, but not OUR Pens. Maybe the Predators or Panthers, teams that DON'T get fan support. Christ, we Pittsburghers support ALL of our teams, just look at attendance figures for the friggin Pirates, even before we got our new stadium and sucked in the late 90's. We love our teams, and really don't want to see them go to KC, Vegas, Winniped, Saskatchewan, or any F'n where else. We've supported this team through the lean years, and just when the dynasty is about to begin it might leave and you're gloating about it? F@$% You dude, I can't wait till Payton blows the chiefs out this weekend.

and take that motherfucking pissing penguin down, or I am going to fucking call the fuckers that run this blogger and have your site shutdown for being fucking racist.

Assholes.. Pens are coming to KC.. signed sealed and delivered

Jon said...

And another thing, this ain't got s__t to do with fan support, it's all politics and Mario getting jerked around for the past seven years by politicians, some long gone, some still here. He was a good enough man to buy the team when he really didn't have to, he coulda been a d__k and got his money owed to him the messy way. so before u spout off anymore, just know what the f__k you're talking about POTNA. I hope yinz get a sh__y NBA team for your empty building.

As much as I hate the whole "Let's get all team mascots to be politically correct and non offensive" movement, how is a penguin pissing on his beloved football teams logo in any way racist? this issue's dead and buried.

Wow, the cheifs are only in the playoffs because the 49ers got lucky against the Broncos. You guys are a 6th seed and are probably going to say you are the next steelers.

Andrew said...

You're right, Adam. Stealing other people's newspapers isn't work...and if it is...man, I love my job!

You know what the best part about this is Mr. KC is probably not even from KC. or Kansas. Just some little twerp who wanted to start some shit on a message board. Kudos to you, boy. Kudos to you.

As for the topic at hand...KC has about as much chance of getting a hockey team as the Chiefs have of leading a playoff football game this year. Not bloody likely.

As for the "racist logo"...Um...right. I think you and I need to have a little talk about these things in "dictionaries" called "definitions." If you flip to the "Rs" and look up the word "racist" you will see that it involves discrimination based upon race. And last time I checked (granted that was a while ago) "Penguin," "Chief's Logo," and "Tinkle Tinkle" were not races. But, like I said, it's been a while, so that could have changed.

I'm glad I just wasted time on this.

how exactly is that bragging?

on a separate note, i seriously think the Kansas City Predators would be a pretty damn good idea, get an up and coming team the hell out of NASCAR country.

Pens 4, 'Canes 3 (OT)
trust me. see you and your digi camera at the game, chief.

oh my adam... I'm truly sorry I missed this as it was going on. These KC fans obviously have minds as strong as Christian Okoye's knees.

Anonymous said...

i woke up 2 hours before i had to go to work just to see what i missed.

So let me get this straight..

1.) we don't deserve the Pens because you sell out Chiefs games.

2.) we don't deserve the Pens because because we had Mario.

3.) we don't deserve the Pens, because thats all i got from the anonymous one.

So lets actually step back and see if he makes a point here.... maybe we don't deserve the pens, because we don't sell out those important chiefs games and we did already have Mario so by that logic Pheonix, LA, and Edmonton are all moving to Kansas City too.


the only way we don't deserve a hockey team is because our local government is a bunch of morons, and don't understand what $290 of free money actaully is, so they'll raise taxes and get the job done. We fans might complain about it, but its the Pens, we understand.

Tyler said...

Ok I'm a little late but here it is:

Going to a hockey game in Kansas City would be like going to a Nascar Race. No one understands it they just wanna see some crashes. They have one AAA team in the state, congrats. Pittsburgh has two in the city that both put many players in Junior A and D1. When Gretzky went to LA youth hockey went crazy and now they have national champion organizations there. If the pens went to Kansas City I doubt that would happen. And I bet half the good players would want out.

Rico Fatastic said...

Kansas City killed Owen Hart.

...i'm just sayin'.

Adrienne said...

Here's my amazement factor:
And not to mention this blog has got mad fucking females on it. You call yourself a fan blog and all you got is girls writing on it.

First off, if I were a guy I'd be proud of the fact that I had actual female fans (note: not groupies) that knew what the fuck I was posting about. Educated hockey females are severely lacking; always have been, always will be.

Second, you're a fucking idiot. Everything you've posted has been a quote from someone else off the internet. I have no doubt that all your formulated opinions were probably copied off some "kc for the Pens 2k7!" forum.

Learn to think for yourself, with legitimate arguements before you try and argue with a site full of people who know what they're talking about, AND supporting.

BTW pensblog guys: if you're at tonights game hunt me down. B15 row H seats 13/14 (I think?) Just look for the "hockey doesn't need cheerleaders" shirt :P

Christina said...

cheers to everything adrienne said....glad to see another intelligent female hockey fan on here! (love what your shirt says, by the way)

to all the KC folks out there...you may SAY that you will support the pens, you may SAY that you'll fill an arena night in and night out, but i highly doubt that will happen if the team has a down year or two. we have a history with this team, and we love them good times and bad . if you want proof just look at the numbers...last year we had an average attendance of 15,804, which meant we filled the Igloo to 92% capacity when the Pens' record was 22-46-8. think you can do that? somehow i doubt it.

pennsblog guys...great site by the way, love reading it. keep up the great work!

Me said...

Ok, I live in KC and I must say, this place STINKS....it is the white trash capital of the WORLD. I will be shocked if it even gets to the point that KC can bid on the Pens. I would then be shocked if the NHL approved the sale/move. This city could not support a hockey franchise. Unless of course each ticket came with a set of overalls and a ticket to any all you can eat buffet...even then the people could not fit into the seats...let alone understand the game.

Why did OJ Simpson want to move to Kansas City? Everyone shares the

How do you know when you’re staying in a Kansas City hotel? When you call the front desk and say "I've gotta leak in my sink" and the person at the front desk says "go ahead."

What does a girl from Kansas City say while she's having sex? Roll over Dad; you're crushing my cigarettes.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Please just ignore the anonymous ignoramus from KC. You know the old saying about arguing on the internet and the special olympics...

I am willing to wager that he isn't even from KC, just some frustrated yinzer that has his panties in a bunch because Mario has threatened to look into moving the team and St. Bettis has been made a target of Pens Nation frustration with his involvement in the North Shore casino. Congrats dude, you really got us in an uproar. Now go "wersh" your Greg Lloyd jersey and leave us alone.

Besides... do they even have computers in Kansas City? I doubt it. Even if they do, has that town ever contributed one notable thing to our society? Ok... the bar-b-q is pretty good.

For the love of all things holy, they aren't even located in Kansas. Why the hell does Missouri put up with their crap?

It's a hockey night in PITTSBURGH!

Stoosh said...

Are we sure that "anonymous" isn't just Paul McGannon from NHL21? Or maybe Boots?

More details will certainly come out after Thursday's initial meeting between the Pens officials and the local & state officials. But it was initially reported last week that Onorato said they would be willing to control of 100% of the arena revenue streams to the Pens as part of the Plan B negotiations. There is not another arena out there capable of offering them something like that.

If that's the case, the KC hockey "fans" who are now trolling this blog might as well start turning their attention to the NBA because the Pens aren't leaving Pittsburgh. It would be completely devoid of any business sense (that means "stupid" for whoever the troll was posting under "anonymous") for them to leave a situation where they could control 100% of all arena revenues - the real moneymaker for an NHL team - for a city like KC where they'd have to pay rent and sacrifice control of significant revenue streams.

And don't blame Pittsburgh. And don't blame the Pittsburgh fans or Mario Lemieux or the NHL.

Blame the way the Sprint Center was funded. The naming rights from the Sprint Center were used in part to fund the arena construction. AEG also chipped in more than $50 million to finance arena construction. That money has to be made back somehow, so AEG takes their cut via control of the more profitable revenue streams.

It's still possible that Boots could partner up with someone with deeper pockets and ask that entity to both overpay for the Pens (based on their value) AND be willing to lose some money on the lease at the Sprint Center. And of course, this is all assuming that Lemieux puts the team back on the block, as it currently is not for sale.

I'm not saying it can't happen. It's just not likely. Am I expecting this arena thing to get done this Thursday when Lemieux meets with the gov't officials? No. In fact, I have a feeling Pens fans are due for one or two more downturns on the roller coaster before this is said and done. But 100% control of the revenue streams is not something the Pens are going to get elsewhere, and it's going to be very difficult for Kansas City to beat that offer. Basically, the ownership in KC is going to have to drastically overpay for the team and be willing to absorb some losses in revenues.

Adam said...

Guys, I love reading all these comments.

Kudos to Adrienne and Christina standing up for themselves. It would have been condescending on our part if we talked for you.
That made my day.

I'm heading down to the Arena in a few minutes to interview some people.

Go Pens.

buccoboo said...

You do realize that we fill the arena to capacity, even if we are losing? Take back your "Scouts" from New Jersey. This town loves the Pens. Yeah, okay, they are second to the Steelers. You try and tell me a new hockey club wouldn't be second to the Chiefs.

Heck, our baseball team is even better than yours. We were 11 games better than you losers.

Kansas City Royals Second Half: 25-49
Pittsburgh Pirates Second Half: 37-35

Notice something about that? Yeah, it has to do with comparing Pittsburgh to Kansas City overall. Pittsburgh is a bunch of winners who are moving up, though slowly. Kansas City just sucks. And yeah, I do know that the Pirates had a losing record overall...

Hey, your football team made the playoffs. Thats a travesty. Remember this game? http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=261015023

How about that, huh? Our quarterback had an incident with a windshield and a motorcycle, and he was STILL good enough for 16/19, 238, 2 TD. And your blessed Larry Johnson, the "workhorse", rushed 15 times for 26 yards. You guys even had your far superior backup quarterback in there (Sorry, but Huard was far better than Green this year).

Good job starting strong against "tough" opponents such as San Francisco, Arizona, St. Louis, and Oakland. The only impressive victories all year you guys had were when you swept Denver and beat San Diego.

Oh, and if you dare mention about how we lost to Oakland (they at least have a good defense), you guys lost to bloody Cleveland (they don't have a good anything).

And yeah, you may go ahead and mention that we had Lemieux and Jagr, and thus don't deserve Crosby. Think of this:

Jagr balances out with former Kansas City Outfielder Carlos Beltran. You lost Beltran at 28. We lost Jagr at 29. Both are great players.

Keep in mind we also lost Barry Bonds. And no Kansas City star will ever amount to what he did. Notice that he may have also used steroids.

Pittsburgh is used to greatness. Lemieux, Jagr, Bonds, Clemente, Stargell, Francis, Coffey, Bettis, the 1970's Steelers, Wagner, Bonilla, Parker, Stevens, Murphy, Barrasso, Malkin, Crosby, etc. etc. etc.

Not to disrupt the fun, if you get a chance, check out Steve Yzerman's speech (his jersey was retired tonight). He is the epitome of the word "class." (As if we didnt already know this) It was amazing...

Say what you will, "anonymous". Keep in mind that if KC gets the Pens, than either Winnipeg or Quebec will get them from you quickly afterwards.

I'm glad to see there are other intelligent female hockey fans here.

I realize this has nothing to do with KC, but hey. Neither does hockey.

KC will never get the Pens... those simple motherf#@kers don't even know the recipe for ice.

Big win tonight!

I'm a little late on here but would like to throw one more shout out to the female hockey fans. Adrienne, where do I get one of those shirts for myself??

George Brett got to keep his home run in that game after MLB decided the Yankees were playing lawyer ball. Considering all the misguided anger on this blog, I'm guessing you don't actually care but the whole situation was kind of awesome and bizarre.
