Puck Dreams

Before we start anything.

Raise your hands in the air, and look to the heavens.
Somewhere Badger Bob is smiling.
What a great time to be alive

...................................
Spit-shine your shoes


The pinnacle of the NHL season.

The Ducks started off the season ridiculously hot and never really cooled off.

The Senators were mired in the deep recesses of the Eastern Conference at Thanksgiving but starting owning after that.
They have won 12 of their last 15.


Jimmy the Monkey says Senators in 6.


Marty, the official chicken of The Pensblog, says Sens in 5.


This guy says, "Marty, you're a joke. Ducks in 6."


What do you think, bitches. Ducks in 4.


Brett Hulls says Red Wings in 3.


Jack Burton says it's all in the reflexes.

..................................
Deliveries



...Today we learned that Brian Leetch retired.


It's not really news. It seems like he retired 5 years ago.

....In Pens news
Eklund, the guy who makes stuff up and sees if he gets it right, said both Roberts and Rex are thinking of staying.
In other news Gary Roberts will now appear on French frie boxes at McDonalds.






.....Rick Tocchet is still in a mess. He's appearing court Friday in regards to all the gambling crap from whenever.


Good luck, Rick.


...Some skank cheerleader is suing the Rangers.

"She accused MSG of turning many of her teammates, including longtime friends, into adversaries by ''pumping them'' for disparaging information about her and pressuring them into signing statements critical of her."
"She said the disparaging remarks led to hyperactivity and deep depression, culminating in a nine-month stretch in 2004 when she spent much of her time in bed crying and thinking of death"

If you ever find yourself caugh in a nine-month stretch of laying in bed crying, and thinking of death.
Just end it.

Thanks to reader Ted Dell, from Portland. He saw this store and took a picture of it.

Not a whole lot to job at.

Mark Malone wouldn't have mouthed off like that.

And finally everyone is sick of David Littleboysfield.
Someone job a photoshop of him.

He is begging for it.

Winter in the Sun
Game #10
Wednesday, November 1, 2006
" In the third period, we figured that if this team is supposed to go somewhere this year, they had to pull this win out. We get a powerplay about five minutes into the third, figuring we'd get the tying goal there...but we didn't. Six seconds after the penalty expires, though, Noah Welch threw a puck to the net that hit some shit and went into the net. Tied game. Huge. The rest of the third had Pensblog Nation wishing that the Pens can at least escape with a point. The third period ends, and overtime commences. Happy with a point at least. "

Crap We Said:

  • Any overtime game this year will excite us because we get to see Crosby and Malkin in flowing 4-on-4 action. It took the Kings about a minute to crap on themselves, as Mattias Norstrom gets sent to the box for hooking Malkin. After toying around with the Kings for a while, The Malkin ends up scoring off a rebound. Game.
CommentorBlog Said:
Andrew said...

I'm going to say this...and you listen well, youngsters...When a team can pull wins out of their ass like the Pens did tonight...that means great things. Look at the years that the Patriots won the Superbowls. How many of those games should they have lost and somehow, someway Our Lord and Savior Tom Brady (at least in the eyes of non-Pittsburgh media) pulled victories out. That's what we have in Pittsburgh right now with our belovéd Pens. Watching Malkin and Crosby in OT makes me want to shoot my literal and metaphorical jizz all over the place.

Right after Malkin scored in OT.

You can't stop Evgeni Malkin. There are doubts as to whether it's even possible to contain him.

Good Lord. I really enjoyed the 1st period, the other two were kind of sloppy by both teams but a great ending. Very Happy

Mornin everyone... hilarious article about Colby in his hometown newspaper...

Ducks in 6, count on it.

Doug said...

That video still makes me teary eyed. Right around when Jimmy Paek puts it in. Does it get any better than that?

Mike said...

@Loralei: Can we get that link again? That one didn't work.

Karate Kid = Money. That should be Sid's theme song.

loralei said...

http://www.canada.com/saskatoonstarphoenix/columnists/story.html?id=4cefdaf6-2a2d-41ab-ae31-0a09372d87e1

There it is again. If it doesnt work this time go to www.canada.com/saskatoonstarphoenix which is the main page for the paper. The article is in the sports section (obviously~ lol) and scroll down, its called "Playing pro hockey is sometimes a drag" Let me know if you still cant get to it. I'll just cut & paste it. Much to the delight of the other posters i'm sure...

loralei said...

OK I'm looking at it now and for some reason the whole link isnt posting... Just try going directly to the paper page...

Dwayne said...

Guys, the whole link is posting, it's just that it's being rendered improperly by your browser (it's getting confused with the CSS of the page).

If you want to see the links as-is, go to the main pensblog page, click on the title of the blog post, and it'll send you to a page with the blog and all the comments, on the standard black background. And then you'll see the link.

Otherwise, if you're posting a link and want to make things easy on people, put them in in the form *of* a link, by writing these HTML tags: <a href="http://your.link.here">click me</a> , which would produce click me

In this particular case: Colby Thinks Playoff Hockey Isn't On In the United States (wtf? I watched it every night!)

loralei said...

I apologize for my ignorance.

Anonymous said...

best thing about that clip

KBL

greatest hockey coverage in history.

EmDubs said...

There is a major tool writing for the Saskatoon Star Phoenix or the Ass Wipe Rag, as I will forever now refer to it. In one of his articles he said the NHL blocked the sale of the Penguins to Balsillie because they don't want Crosby to play his games in Canada. Bitter much?

Stoosh said...

emdubs,

Unfortunately, tools like that clown aren't so much the mouthpiece of the majority up in Canada. If Crosby played for a Canadian-based team, they would play to 41 guaranteed sellouts a night, plus have trememdous broadcast coverage on the Canadian networks, plus garner 41 nights of huge road crowds (if not sellouts there as well). And you could still get Sid's hypothetical Canadian-based team on a national US-based network like NBC just as much as you could an American-based team. To suggest that the NHL would actively guard against a scenario like this is pretty much...well, stupid. Why on earth would the NHL decide that's not a good thing and block something like that?

If the NHL had anything to do with blocking Balsillie's attempt to buy and move the Penguins, they did so because Pittsburgh has proven to be one of the stronger US-based markets in the league, both in terms of attendance and TV ratings. The NHL cannot afford to lose that. Pittsburgh may never be Minnesota (where they pretty much sell out every home game), but the attendance has been stronger in Pittsburgh over the last 10-15 years than it has been in many of the other US-based markets. And this team translates to TV very well, especially within its own market.

tocchet pleaded guilty. he could face up to 10 yrs in the clink, but is unlikely to serve time.

Pat said...

The Rad clip is priceless. I've got a VHS copy of that movie somewhere.

EmDubs said...

I think the Saska-tool was arguing that Canadian teams already have strong attendance, so they conspired to keep Crosby in the U.S. to bolster attendance here. The guy was drafted by Pittsburgh because they had the right to draft him, not because of some clever NHL conspiracy. Get over it already.

I read that article about Colby and was thinking the same thing. Its not really that hard to watch a hockey game in the U.S. Maybe Colby opts for basic cable and doesn't get Versus.

theNick said...

fuck Brett Hull.





That is all.

Best quote from this post (in the video)

no need to get defensive about the typos comment, i just noticed there have been a lot the last few posts. just trying to help, dick

Tiffany said...

That '91 vid was definitely a tearjerker. Thanks a lot Pensblog. ;-)

Loralei, that was a cute story about "Armpit". (~_~) Good find.

And Dwayne, thank you SO much for explaining how to post links using HTML. It was driving me crazy not knowing how to do it.

Now onto the Ducks & Senators....
I unfortunately have a feeling that Ottawa will raise Lord Stanley's Cup. However, my prediction is that Anaheim will win it in 7.

P.S. WilSmith, you stole The Breakfast Club dancing scene idea from me!!! Well done. ;-)
Here are 2 other movie clips, though (just because):

Now I've had the time of my life


And time goes by so slowly

Tiffany said...

By the way, sorry for the back to back Swayze. I know that they're not montages, but just thought the ladies (and maybe some of the guys) might like them. ;-)

wilsmith said...

when the subject matter for the past couple of days has been for the most part cheesy music videos, you can't go wrong with back to back swayze.

and sorry for stealing the breakfast club, I guess. I was originally thinking of the ending, but my memory served me wrong and it really wasn't much of a montage.

even though he makes blockbusters all the time, willsmith takes time out of his busy schedule to post on commentorblog. thank you willsmith

Does anyone know how to get in touch with "AJ"....the person who put up the video from the RAD movie....the video clip that has this:
