Bob Grove > Walter Cronkite

Prepare to be stunned:
John Fedko Wikipedia

....................................

Before we get to the big news of Vancouver's new uniforms,
we feel it's necessary to talk about the hometown team first.

Bob Grove wrote on the Pens website that other than run-of-the-mill changes every other team is making, the Pens uniform will look the same.
No New Logo.[Pittsburgh Penguins.com]

And when Bob Grove tells you something.
You better listen, or you don't know whats going on.

............................................................

No one can explain why more anticipation has swirled around Vancouver's RBK jerseys than any other team's.


There you go. That's it. Nice colors.

[Yankee Canuck] is all over it.

The lettering will be unique in the RBK Era of the NHL.
Whatev.


Trevor Linden is now contemplating retirement.

****

The next big thing on the RBK Tour:

Calgary and Montreal will be unveiling their stuff within the week.
So will the Pens.

Speaking of which, unless the Pens logo starts implementing a 1-4 delay, it ain't beating the Habs logo in the tournament.

Jokes about Michael Vick are too easy. Way too easy.
Anyone who makes a Vick joke is mud.

But someone has to do it.[AOL Fanhouse NHL]

" It's a rare opportunity to post positive news about hockey attendance that hasn't been artificially inflated by the NHL, but here goes: The Anaheim Ducks and Pittsburgh Penguins are more popular than Michael Vick at a Korean BBQ convention. "

Ouch.

The post goes on to talk about the Pens season-ticket sales and crap.
As if all of us Pens fans who stood by the team for the last 5 years didn't see this coming.

Jimmy McBusinessman will be in our seats now until Crosby retires.


"Mmmyeah, let's talk about these reports at the Pens game tonight, bitches. Mmmyeah."

SnoopyJode is right. This offseason picture is on its last legs.
This picture will be officially retired when the Penguins play their first exhibition game.
Thus, finally letting us move past how last season ended.

It's served it's purpose like the Lunar Excursion Module did for the Apollo 13 crew.

canaanorade: the first quencher

Staff said...

Uh Oh...its looks like we may have accidently destroyed it.

Oops

canaanregulatesblog said...

its probably for the better

Jeff said...

There I fixed it for you guys.


Praise Gary!

Kenny Melvin said...

I think the Fedko wikipedia page is on permanent watch now. Whenever someone messes around with the entry, it goes back like 2 minutes later.

Unpaid wikipedia staff=dicks

Soooooooo... what are the chances of me being able to call in the day that tickets go on sale and pick up two tickets to three games for my trip in Feb? If I can't get tickets, I'll have to murder someone.

Loser Chris said...

Any day that begins with a 1-4 delay reference is bound to be a good day!

Don K. Show said...

What did the wiki page have on it? I was the one who updated it with Artie Lange, the questions and the Barry Bonds stuff, which surprisingly hasn't gone away.

Spencemo said...

I would like to state, for the record, that my Korean BBQ is 100% Dog-Free.

Hooks Orpik said...

Fedko is a devoted Catholic; he has said "Gary is the most important thing in my life".[2] He "turned to Roberts" in high school, and has "prayed every night since [his] college days".[3]

I snuck that in about two months ago and remarkably it's stuck. The unpaid staff can't catch 'em all!

the general said...

just a quick comment about the offseason picture that is getting replaced....

after seeing it everyday, it probably loses its meaning to most (its the background on my desktop too). but do you remember the feeling when the clock ran out in the final game? i had followed the team all year like the rest of you, and it was like "what the hell". then when that pic got released, you knew that they felt the same way....

ok that was my queer sentimental monologue for the day haha. im just really hype for this season.

p.s. - how about the text message lottery for student rush??

Staff said...

General,

Amen to that, well said

Jimmy McBusinessman will be in our seats now until Crosby retires.

i don't know of another 11-word phrase that could piss me off any more than this one right now. i'm all for welcoming the new fans - if i can't get a ticket because they're all sold out to people that actually want to see and cheer for the pens, that's okay. i can live with that.

but i can't stomach the thought of corporate jagoffs buying season tickets just so they can use those valuable pens tickets to woo prospective customers that only go for the free trip and don't care about the team. (>_<)

Loser Chris said...

"i don't know of another 11-word phrase that could piss me off any more than this one right now."

Oh yeah? How about...

"The Ottawa Senators introduced their new signing Sidney Crosby this afternoon"
or
"Michael Vick agreed to babysit Snoopyjode's dogs during her Chemo treatments"?

Jeff said...

Hahahahahahaha.....


ahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha

Loser Chris said...

or...
"Snoopyjode and Kenny Melvin, I now pronounce you boy and wife."

I could do this all day!

snoopyjode said...

WOW. I. AM. SO. PISSED. OFF. RIGHT. NOW.

Loser Chris said...

"Congratulations Snoopyjode and Kenny Melvin, it is a healthy baby boy!"

Sorry Snoop, you asked for it.

Jeff said...

Or

"Chris, it's a girl. We're going to name her Martin Brodeur."

snoopyjode said...

i just threw up everywhere.

Anonymous said...

uh, guys?

Is there some reason Commentorblog is disabled on the newest post?

canaanregulatesblog said...

i was wondering that myself. will find out asap.

AJ said...

The photo of the fan in the Leafs jersey was great.

It inspired me so much that I finally used the gift certificate for mlb.com that I got last Christmas.

Today I purchased one Pittsburgh Pirates "Losers Since 92" game jersey.

Sure... the joke is recycled, but I can't wait for opening day next April.

Kenny Melvin said...

Wow you guys job around with me, while i'm at school. That's low

Loser Chris said...

Of course Kenny, why should the kids at your school get to have all the fun?
