While you were sleeping

It's never a good time when you are getting ready to start a post, and instead you lay down and pass out.
But hey I guess we got so used to watching Jason Spezza sleepwalk through the finals, we thought it was ok.

What a great picture

But needless to say, we don't have much to bring you this post.
It is the offseason. Sometimes sleep is more important.
But don't worry we will be back tonight.


Until then, enjoy this Photoshop


And this piece of up lifting news about the arena

A few things discussed at the meeting:

  • Enter into a lease with the Penguins on the new arena, one that will run 29 years and 11 months, based on the terms agreed to in March, plus an accompanying agreement that will bind the team to Pittsburgh for at least that long. The formal lease documents are still being finalized.
  • Buy the former St. Francis Central Hospital from the team for $8.5 million, $500,000 more than the Penguins paid for it in 2000. The property is needed for the arena construction.
  • Enter into an extension with the Penguins covering the time the team will play at Mellon Arena until their home is ready. Under the extension, the Penguins could take over from SMG as master tenant of the building in July, giving them more control over revenue.

Everyone also agreed Big Ben is a joke.


One thing that doesn't fall asleep:

Since the 9:00 deadline is too early, closing time will be 11:00 PM.

And Musicblog Live! is going to be Friday night’s theme as well.

Fasten your seatbelts & thank you for flying with Jefferson Airplane.

That's a remarkable day's work from the musicblog.


Hooks Orpik said...

I can just picture Michel Ouellet somewhere out there nodding his head approvingly, thinking "now Dave Roche, THERE'S a hockey player" with a little grin

Stanley P. Kachowski said...

The Eagles? I approve.

However, The Dude does not

Minor Threat on musicblog!!

If I (and black people) have proven anything, it's that if you bitch enough YOU WILL get what you want!!!

Louis Lipps is my homeboy said...

I have to also ask that NOBODY take the black people joke seriously by the way.

Anonymous said...

I took it seriously. I now live my life by those words.

Jonny V said...

As long as the Dude abides Stanley...You said it, man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus...Shomer fucking shabbos!!...Donny, you're out of your element...the list of quotes from that movie goes on and on.

I don't know Lipp, that might warrant a harsh word from one Mr Wheatley. "Word." With his hat cocked to the side like all the kool white kids do.

Minor Threat is required at least once every other day or else the world collapses.

It's true.

Now all we need are some Dead Kennedys - Holiday In Cambodia and I can die happy.

stop posting new music on musicblog. stick to videos that are funny because they suck so bad, or "that song" type songs.

Jason said...

when i think about great live performances, i think about woodstock. Ya, the latest versions of woodstock sucked because of the high prices and bad conditions, but you can't beat seeing a band play in front of 100,000 people.

live from woodstock:
