Versus Broadcast with Emrick+Devils game=hard liquor

hahahaha @ the video

stokes said...

Boy Brady was AWESOME.

Nathan said...

Yeah, except Emrick doesn't usually work Monday night Versus games. That's usually Joe Beninati's domain (which means you'll still need the hard liquor). Doc does a halfway decent job at being a neutral PBP guy on his national broadcasts.

keeping the tradition (with some minor adjustments from last game)...

(To the tune of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels Band)

Well the Pens went over to Jersey
They were lookin' for some points to steal
They were in a bind, Devils 1 point behind
And willin' to make a deal
They came upon this old man
Playin' goalie, and playin' it hot
So Geno jumped up on a hickory stump
Said, Matry lemme tell you what
"I'm sure you already knew it
'Cause I'm a hockey player too
And if you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now you play pretty good hockey, boy
But give the Penguins their due
I'll bet a Mike Rupp goal
Against your soul
Just to think we're better than you"
Then a boy said, "my name's Parise
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet
Though I'm gonna regret
'Cause tonight, the Pens will win"

So Mikey rousin' up your bench
And change those 4 lines hard
'Cause hell's broke loose in Jersey
And Jarkko's killin' retards
And if you win, you're closer to that banner in black and gold
But if you lose, the Devils have control

The Devils opened up the gate and said "We'll start this show"
Then Elias flew in on a breakaway, but yeah, he still blows
He pulled the puck across the ice and it made an evil hiss
Then all 12 fans joined in and it sounded somethin' like this
(Silence overtakes the microphone)
When the Devils finished, Georges said "well you're pretty good 'ol sons"
"But if you drop the gloves with me, you'd be better off to run"

Fire at The Rock, run boys, run
Look, it's Marty's illegitimate son
Chickens in the locker room, pickin' their toes
Hey we got a powerplay, Go Sarge Go

The Devils bowed their heads because they knew that they'd been beat
Then they layed that division lead on the ground at Mike Yeo's feet
Conk said "Devils just come on back if you ever wanna try again"
"I told you once, you sons of a bitch, the Conkblockin' never ends"

Fire at The Rock, run boys, run
Look, it's Marty's illegitimate son
Chickens in the locker room, pickin' their toes
Like they say in Canada, "GO PENS GO"

Man Gary Roberts is busy on his down time.

wilsmith said...

consider "and Jarkko's killin 'tards"

=D

Epic video. What software did you use for that?

Oh, and Joe B? God I hope not. PLEEEASE. If there's one voice I cannot stand, and not just in hockey, but in the entire realm of voices worldwide, it's Joe B's. F that guy.

Flyer Hater said...

Hairspray and doughnut boy on the call tonight, God help us all

DeathByEmu said...

The Boy George Brady..made me snarf 7-UP.. really hurts sinus cavity..and is bad for the keyboard...nice one.
.. I was at the last Devil's game, me and maybe six other people. Awesome arena. Located in a craphole. A guy there (20 year season ticket holder) told me they were only HALF FULL on the new arena's OPENING NIGHT. Why?
Well..
1. They are BORING. 1-0 games are the same reason no one watches soccer.
2. Newark scares people. Locals are up in arms that the only time the cops set foot downtown is when they swarm the street on game nights. They really need Andrew Giuliani to be their mayor and give town the Times Square treatment. I mean..(no joke, either), the F.B.I. moved it's offices out of there because their agents kept getting mugged and their guns stolen walking to the office. Sad.

Johnny Wrath said...

·Soccer is the shit. I'm not kidding. I support FC Bayern Munich, and they're not boring, 1-0 scoreline or not.

·That will never stop Americans from selling it short, claiiming it isn't an American game (like Hockey), and therefore not worthwhile.

·NJ won 38 games at home one year, and they had 3 sellouts. NJ is Pennsylvania's moldy basement, though, so it makes sense.

·Eklund and his tarty co-hostess said they were afraid for their safety in Newark.

·I hate Versus. I hate how I can do a countdown on one hand until Edzo references Chicago and the "Old Chicago Stadium". If I was as drunk as Bobby Hull, and therefore Oksana Baiul, neither I nor the goalie would have any idea where the puck was going. Go Pens.

·Rafael had a Plato-themed Fresco, representing his belief in "The Forms". Converesly, I have The Vitruvian Man, circa 1492, tattood on my back, really big. And yes, I am cut like Danzig. Thanks for the kind words.

Flyer Hater said...

The only two sporting leagues I really need are the NHL and the English Premiere League.

Johnny Wrath said...

Oh God, please don't say you're a ManU "supportah".

BlacknGold66 said...

I hate Versus because the ONLY place in town that has it here in the part of Cleveland I live in is at a bar.

One bar that is.

Luckily it's cheap wing night.

Unfortunately for the staff there Ms. BlacknGold66 and I are going to occupy a table for 3.5 hours.

LET'S GO PENS!

Let's do this shit!

Hip said...

Game I can watch - AWESOME.

Go Pens.

I was never good at video editing, so I'm sure there is a very easy way to do it. However, these are the steps I took:

1) Cropped the video down to the 1 second portion which showed the monster's face.
2) Used ULead GIF Animator to break the clip into frames and made each frame an individual JPEG.
3) Opened each JPEG in Photoshop and put Roberts' face on each image as well as editing it to fight that frame just right.
4) Converted the combined images back into a video clip using some random program I found.
5) Reformed the video using ULead VideoStudio 11.5

My computer hates me, so it made it difficult to try and put it all back together.

Glad everyone is enjoying it!

I realllllllly wanted to somehow Photoshop the Robertsfield monster destroying The Garden or The Coliseum, but the ridiculous amount of time that would have taken is beyond my patience. Maybe someday soon . . .

tenaciousD said...

I see pensblog Charlie was busy this weekend. Not only did he make an appearance at the super bowl, but it appears that he's notched 2 more sens according to flashblog. Impressive, Charlie, very impressive.

johnny wrath, while I agree that soccer is the shnikes, supporting bayern munich is like supporting the yankees or the pats. it just shouldn't be done.

GO PENS!

Mike Georger said...

MAN I WISH I GOT VERSUS :(

Flyer Hater said...

Johnny, I'm a Liverpool supporter. It's been tough over the past couple of weeks though, Rafa definitely needs to go.

I hate playing the Devils, it really feels like whoever gets the next goal will win and the other team will have no chance to come back.

NHL and EPL... The only leagues that matter.
Fluery was looking sharp in that sweet suit.

Hip said...

Kudos to Sykora. 600 career points is certainly impressive.

He is just giddy to be a Pen right now. I love it. He has the best shit eating grin in interviews too.

cdubbs said...

another cloverfield conspiracy emerges lol. I think this is the best and most believable so far

Pensgirl said...

Stupordave, the NHL's had its share of good dressers but Fleury rocks a suit like no one else. Don't wanna run fashionblog but that kid's got style.

Hate givin' up a late goal. Gronk's had a few solid chances, like to see him capitalize this period.

Fleury29 said...

Mike Lange just said, "The Islanders here on Thursday, hope you can join us, if not we'll have it for you."

Thanks, but no thanks, Mike. I'll be in attendance at the Igloo.

Fleury29 is coming to the 'Burgh!

LET'S GO PENS!

yikes....wtf was that???

Flyer Hater said...

A road point is good in any situation, and it looks even better without Sid. I know everyone is ready to kill someone right now but take a look at the standings, we're in fine shape.

P.S. Ryan Whitney is the softest defenseman in the NHL right now. Please trade him before other teams realize that he sucks.

Matt said...

Talk about playing not to lose the last half of the 3rd. Couple lucky break goals for them but damn, I'm thankful we dragged it into OT.

stokes said...

Flyer hater:

Agreed a road point is good, but giving up a two goal lead anywhere is bad and that's what blows ass about tonight. The Debils' second goal was a fluke, but sometimes that's all you need, no? That being said, gaining first place doesn't really matter right now. The tightest division in the league and we are hanging right in there.

Ryan Whitney has been playing like shit all year. He'd better step it up very soon.

Flyer Hater said...

Stokes, definitely it sucks but look at it from this way. 3 out of 4 points in New Jersey this past week is pretty damn good. Staal and Christensen have really found their game. Conklin is still making big saves.

Just look at the schedule ahead, two very winnable games against the Isles and Kings upcoming and then a huge test against the Flyers. This is a game where you tell yourself, we gotta point on the road and forget about the rest. Don't forget about the many positives that came out of this game.

Flyer Hater said...

Oh and the powerplay continues to look better and better every game. It's starting to remind me of how the PP heated up last year at around this time. I guarantee that this will be one of the few, maybe the only game the rest of the season that we'll lose scoring 2 goals with the man advantage.

Hip said...

PP was definitely solid today.
And I'll take the point.

But we left a huge point (technically two) out on the ice. Disgusting.

e.mirchich said...

feels bad to lose, but at least we got the point and are in a good spot in the standings. our division is going to be crazier than ever going down the playoffs stretch, should be very exciting to watch. glad pete got his 600th, though it was flukey. dev's second goal was flukey as well, so fair enough there. i didn't really like how letang played right on conk's back then kind of threw everything off, eventually having the puck deflect off him and in since he was still in the crease. oh well. devs cranked it up and stole the momentum, real back and forth game. i hate to lose, but at least we are tied for the division lead.

Jonny V said...

This game totally had the roles reversed. We were supposed to be down 2-0 and come back to win in overtime. Isn't that how it always is?

Fleury29...HUUGE dude! Long time comin', Eh?

Johnny Wrath said...

I've not had a laugh like that since the first time I saw SiCKO.

The NHL is strong. I know this because I hate a different team the most every time I wake up.

At the very least, Flyah Hatah, we both bleed red. My Family lines can be traced to Munich, hence I've been a FC Bayern supporter since they shot Lincoln.

We'll all remember these times when we've won the division for the fifth time. Can you imagine the new building? This isn't about hockey, its about the fact that in OT, my 2 year old threw his bottle of juice at the TV. Go Pens.

I'm happy to have broadened the horizons of The Pensblog. Speaking of broad, I understand that Acid Queen has been found alive in Pineville-Matthews, NC, with a carousel horse stuck in her ass at the local "County fair". Apparently, the incident stemmed from "a dare implemented by a friend" who insisted Acid Queen was "unable to physically cross her legs". Sad.

The Rock, as it is called, was loud tonight, as the deafening silence of empty seats penetrated the most slicked-back of hairstyles. Go Pens.

stokes said...

The Staalbotsen line has been playing very well lately. i really like it. I'm also very happy about the play of Staal and Christensen of late. Way to step up boys.

Flyer hater: At first blush, yes this sucks and dammit all to hell. But rational thought says that you made good points and i agree with them.

The PP has been doing great lately, for sure. Hopefully, they will keep it together. All in all, this team is still playing gritty, smart, and efficient hockey. You gotta be happy about that.

Is it weird to anyone else to see highlights with Crosby in them and realize that he's not playing right now?

PittHockey said...

Robertsfield needs to go rampage in jersey now.

snickerdoodles said...

I just watced the video clip. That was great! Now if I can get Garzilla to wreak havoc on the district office where I work so I can have a few weeks off, I will be one happy gal!
