So They Seem Nice----Or Not

We debated about whether to post this picture or not.
Mistake.

It came into our inbox out of nowhere a few days ago.


UPDATED




Picture has been moved due to public outcry.
But it is hiding on the sidebar if you really want to see it.

Puckbunnyblog isn't our stuff, so we are washing our hands before it gets ugly.

We let [ Wyshynski ] down.

It could be worse, we suppose.

They could have had the Steeler fans one.


Go Pens


Pensblog = Fail

Nice. Very Nice

philmaise said...

From the X's contest for hot chicks in (or out of) Pens gear. Called the 'Miss 5-hole' contest. There's some good ones on their site. That's by far the best, but there's a couple winners.

Dr. Turkleton said...

yawn...

looks like coffeytalks tailgateblog

WHAT?

eileenover said...

That picture makes me embarrassed to be a female.

lauren_hbg said...

@ eileenover

I agree, and I'm not usually one of those I am woman, hear me roar, type chicks, but that crosses the line.

jefe said...

great post.

anyway...

im off to my WINGS eating contest. wish me luck c-bloggers. i made THIS cause its all im going to be thinking about..

Kicksave said...

I'm glad Kipper from the Pens' Forum took credit for my Flyers Failure poster.

I first posted it on LGP. It's still linked to my photobucket account.

Asses.

Matt Gajtka said...

Looking at jefe's 'Shop, I realized that Brian Rafalski looks like Tobey McGuire.

eileenover said...

That picture should have been put as a link IMO. I really don't enjoy looking at slutty girls who will do anything for attention. I'm not like that either Lauren, and we are definitely in agreement.

TheNWChica said...

Let me pass something by the women of c-blog....

Would we mind that picture so much if there were two almost naked well built young men like a few of the boys in black and gold?

Pensblog Staff said...

Does anyone remember what we used to call the Steeler girl?

Pensblog Staff said...

We'll make a deal with the women of cblog because we respect you all.

Find us a pic of some men and we will post it for your sake.

Charlie would like it.

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

@seeker: It's not like they're naked.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@stokes

I saw those tPB ripoff shops [Vinnie!] as well...and the other contest pics & vid were kinda boring, IMO...

I guess tPB staff pic is from a 'reporter' 'covering' the 'event' after the 'winner' was announced.

BTW, can Tim Benz look any more like a rat.

Flyer Hater said...

Wow, this is an outrage, I'm calling my congressman.

eileenover said...

I'm not mad at you staff. I just hate when women do things like that.

xuscbausp said...

oh you crazy women
and your equality.

next, you'll want to vote

lauren_hbg said...

@eileenover

ditto. just mad in general, i don't like women like that... puckbunnyblog

Dr. Turk:

I really cannot stand his show. TERRIBLE.

iheartthepens said...

@ lauren_hbg and eileenover:

start sarcasmblog

WAIT....you mean to tell me you don't celebrate every pens win like that???? my girlfriend and i can't resist a good "pens win make out session"

end sarcasmblog

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Flyer Hater, you returned for this?*laughs* BTW, you didn't turn the page over at the last post ...

@Matt: Ha ... I never realized that but he kinda does!

Well, I guess, talking about how much I hate hockey whores will be fun ... (yucky) I don't know much about computers but is it possible that you could make it so if your mouse goes over the picture you see it? I'm agreeing with eileenover & Lauren ... I'm not mad at yinz at all.

I put that picture on Penguins That Fly.
Why am I terrified my mom will see it and kill me?
She's pissed at me already right now.

michelle said...

. . . sigh

I Have Kasparaitis said...

It also doesn't help that when I turned this on, I was listening to "This One's for the Girls" ... I think I threw up because of that horrible timing ...

To elaborate:
I don't care if you guys ogle over the picture ... I don't care that much, I'm just upset that there are women idiotic enough to do that.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Pensblog Staff said...

wait who is ripping our shop's off.

Charlie is hungry

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

I'm just upset that there are women idiotic enough to do that.

CLEARLY the one girl is having trouble putting her Pens jersey on & is getting some much needed help from the other...in the process of being a 'freind in need is a friend indeed'...they both slipped & a photographer just HAPPENED to be there to capture that moment in time for all the world to see. [just like the Oswald / Ruby photograph, except with slightly more skin]

stokes said...

Staff:

Go to wxdx.com and click on Tim Benz's name. I looked, somewhat hard, and did not see word one about ThePensblog.

DO IT CHARLIE DO IT!

racheleyos said...

..just the post i needed before i go into work. *sarcasm*

girls, please put on some clothes!
malkin and/or sid, please take off your clothes ;)

dr t., thank you for your logical reasoning as to how two women could possibly get themselves into such a situation. i will not judge so quickly next time.

speaking of half naked people...i was curious as to charlie's involvment in nathan smith's streaking incident.

@Dr. Turk: How did you know about it? Were you the photographer? *laughs* Sorry for my quick judgment ... I guess I'm a little red in the face ... (Gary Gulman reference wooo!!!!)

@iheartpens: I think Charlie was the one who gave him alcohol and dare him to do it ... come on, guys, you should know, Charlie's always gonna tell you to streak when he dares you to do something ...

And I think Sid & Malkin need to keep their clothes on ... I think Sid has posed for tons of pictures with his shirt off and Geno has been sick ... these boys need to be healthy for the Finals!

Gabriel said...

Jesus. This is what a Penguins blog has to do to get hits.

(looking again)

Disgusting objectification of women.

(right click...save as...)

@jefe, btw...enjoy your Wings eating contest. But you should watch out, they're going to go through you quick and burn your ass.

dying alive said...

One of the great things about tPB is that this place is where we usually DON'T have to worry about puck bunny crap like that. Worldturnedupsidedownblog.

BTW, not to complain too much and this isn't sour grapes because I loathe puck bunnies...but some of us enjoy the Pensblog from work. That pic kind of makes it NSFW. :(

stokes said...

I have to listen to Benz all morning on the job.
Benz = D. Hatcher of radio

Plus, he's pushing that band that did the crappy cover of AC/DC. the "let's get the cup" song. BARF. It wouldn't be half bad if the guy didn't kill himself trying to sound like Brian Johnson.


I'm trying not to be Debbie Downer here, so, on an upbeat note, i love my cats.

Pensblog Staff said...

dying alive.

Note taken.


once the new post is up this morning the picture will be gone forever.

dying alive said...

@ sooska re: ringtones on my cell phone.

I am going to myxer and having them send a text message to my phone. Then I'm trying to go to the URL, and every time it gives me a message that says I don't have access to the site. Is there another way to do it? Seriously, feel free to speak to me like I'm five years old. I'm decent with technology, but when it comes to cell phones, I basically know how to answer it, dial it, and send a text.

xocharmedchildox said...

Ew, not even close to a fan of this. This kind of stuff is what makes people think that all girls are stupid puckbunnies. I hate when girls do stuff like this just to get attention

dying alive said...

Staff - that's why you guys are the best ever.

And so I don't come off as one of those jealous broads, a link to it or something would be totally cool. I just don't want my boss to walk by and see that picture...the Sid on the douche box I can explain, but I'd have a tough time with that one.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@stokes: I love my cats, too. My cats were lying around my "Let's go Pens" sign ... my one cat, Monster, looked like he was bowing down ...

Thanks, Staff, I was a little worried because I didn't want this to be blocked so I couldn't read it in school ... then again, they block things and have things pop up that say "School Adminstrator blocks this due to: Fun and Games."

The Seeker said...

Wow...the X ripped-off my Amber Alert PS too!

Should I be pissed or honored?

smitty said...

The Pens are in the Stanley Cup Finals!

John Wayne is on AMC!


It's great to be alive!

letsgopsu said...

How long until Saturday?

snickerdoodles said...

@dying alive,

The same goes for me. I also don't give a hoot about puckbunnies, but I read the pensblog at work, too, and that photo makes it nsfw especially for me because I work for the school district. I will have to get one of the Wings after the Cup finals out of the rest home and give him a nice summer job guarding my office door. But not Chelios. He might fall asleep. Old, you know.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

I plead the 5th.

@tPB staff

thanks for the heads-up.

Not going to ever happen again.

stokes said...

@ IHK: My cats have cool names, but one of my buddies named his two cats Sidneycrosby and Gino. Waaay cooler names than my cats.

letsgopsu said...

Wow, the title change for this post is hilarious.

BlacknGold66 said...

Wow, so a couple of people get upset over a picture of two half-naked girls and this place becomes censorshipblog?

That's like people who cried about Janet Jackson's boobie then changed the channel to a show loaded with violence and guns.

Ridiculous.

There is no difference between posting that picture and posting pictures of Don Cherry making out with half naked men.

My girlfriend just saw the post and wasn't pleased, but agreed that you can't have it go only one way.

Not liking what the girls in the picture is fine... but complaining about it being posted on THIS SITE of all places is like admitting to being blind to the rest of it.

And Staff... removing it because people complained is a bad move. You haven't removed other pictures that people found offensive so don't start now or it'll just snowball and this blog will become the BlueShirtBulletin.

Again, how is that picture going to suddenly make you have this site blocked at work when semi-graphic anti-gay pics are put up here all the time?

Fucking ridiculous.

Dr. Turkleton said...

let me get this straight:

.5 naked girls on top of each other = NSFW ?

Don Cherry in homosexual poses & countless other homoerotic photoshops = SFW ?

doublestandardblog?

Pensblog Staff said...

nah Blackngold we value our female readers, and it just wasn't random people, but some posters that we respect and have been with us a long long long time.

We love offending people, but not our own readers.

Plus the picture is around, so whatev.

Funny thing is Pensblog Adam is sleeping right now, and when he wakes up it could be a long phone call.

Dr. Turkleton said...

BNG66

it's REALLY not that bad of a pic...if they want to look at something disgusting & possibly NSFW, they could just look at this

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: Carla will probably need an explanation on that one ... But if you fooled JD for a while with the water ballons then I don't know what you are capable of ... *laughs*

@Stokes: Ha, my cat's names are pretty lame ... Monster, Squeaky, and Calico (she happens to be a calico cat, great creativity, mom) but my one teacher named her dog after Gonchar and is getting another one and will name it Ruutu.

My point of view, I don't really give a damn if the picture is posted ... I can scroll right over it if it was posted, but I think it was moved so people could read the Pensblog at work (or for me school.) (And trust me I don't find Don Cherry or 2 gay guys together attractive.)

Yeah, thanks, Dr Turk.

Turk? That was just mean!

letsgopsu said...

@ IHKaspar

I wish JD was more like the JD from the first couple of seasons of Scrubs. In fact, in the first couple of seasons they all seemed more like real people. Don't get me wrong, still love the show, but it was so much better in the early going.

Scrubsblog

dying alive said...

@ blackandgold66 - If you re-read most of the posts, we don't like it because it's NSFW. Nobody is asking for censorship for censorship's sake. What's the big deal? No need to get all bent about it. I couldn't care less if two women want to get naked and roll around in a Pens jersey. I just don't want to try to log onto the Pensblog tomorrow and see the "This page is blocked due to: nudity" page.

I'd like to point out that I wasn't *offended* by the picture. Hell, actual porn doesn't bother me a bit.

Doublestandardblog? Maybe. But guys can walk around without shirts on in public. Women would be arrested. It's a societal double standard that is not unique to the females reading Pensblog.

Pensgirl said...

All I can say is that it's really nice, when I go home, that I can look my parents in the eyes, knowing that there are no asinine attention-whore pictures of me that they might someday run into on the interwebs.

*goes of to call Mom and thank her for raising me to have some fucking self-respect*

dying alive said...

And BTW, if anyone thinks that any women reading this blog get pleasure out of pictures of Don Cherry surrounded by men...I don't even know what to tell you.

iheartthepens said...

nice picture of what i would refer to as a "douchetwat", dr. t...i thank gary roberts every day that i've got xm radio!

Pensgirl said...

Or maybe goes off to call Mom. Sigh.

TheNWChica said...

And this is me being totally serious and wanting to know. Is a picture of a guy with no shirt also NSFW?

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

Nothing Happened !!!! al ight??


@everyone

Sorry about giving y'all The Benz.

threshhold9k said...

They showed some half naked ladies. Wah. whatev. Let's concentrate on Detroit. But take down, the ladies anyways, or else Chelios might get some jump in his pants. *vomits*

Let's Go Pens!!!

BlacknGold66 said...

@Staff:

You've offended this longtime reader countless times, but that doesn't change my opinion about this site and I'm not about to throw up a hissy fit over it.

Like I said, it has to go both ways and as soon as you start changing it then it'll snowball.

@Not safe for work:

Explain to me the difference between two girls with their shirts off and THIS PICTURE in which you can clearly see a dong.

:-)

Devils advocate here that's all.

dying alive said...

@thenwchica - It probably depends on your workplace. As I said in my original post, I could explain the shirtless pic of Sid on the douche box a lot easier than I could that puckbunny pic. Also, the problem probably wouldn't even even been with people looking over my shoulder. The page might have ended up getting blocked outright. My company is pretty cool about letting employees surf the Gore on their downtime, but they also employ obnoxiously competent people to check on what we're looking at. First sign of female nudity, wham! Blocked.

It probably is a double standard. But like I said, shirtless males are culturally acceptable and shirtless females are not. If a picture of full frontal male nudity (or even rear male nudity) was posted, I'd feel exactly the same.

BlacknGold66 said...

And BTW, if anyone thinks that any women reading this blog get pleasure out of pictures of Don Cherry surrounded by men...I don't even know what to tell you.

When did I allude to that?

I'm just saying that once you start censoring one thing... you start censoring everything else.

dying alive said...

@ blackngold66 - First of all, ew. Second of all, that would also be NSFW for me.

Pensblog Staff said...

haaha Thanks BlackNGold.

Perhaps we are maturing.

Which if that is the case, you can expect an extremely NSFW post tonight.

dying alive said...

@ blackngold66 - Why is asking for it to be made a link rather than a displayed pic requesting censorship? I'm honestly curious.

lis said...

Those two girls are EXACTLY the reason women have such a difficult time being accepted as fans of this sport. If I passed either on the street I would seriously consider beating the ever living shit out of them. On second thought, I wouldn't consider it at all....I would just do it! Fucking Whores!

at the same time...gotta agree with bng playing devils advocate here.

Sooska said...

I saw that photo over at the X a couple of days ago. It's offensive to be sure. However,so is nearly everything else around here. I just thought "OH typical of all the men around here and everywhere else.... slutty girls rolling aorudn kissing each other* pant pant pant* THEY love that stuff. Do I blame the men? Not as much as I blame those stupid girls. How much does anybody bet they are Education majors at (fill in college name here)? Someday they will wonder why they didn't get the job teaching kindergarten. (that is not a slap at education majors-SHIT I am self censoring now.)

If I was that thin- skinned I'd never come to this site. Much like that person who complained about the disrespect for Kate Smith-did you remove that one? (Just don't call women cbloggers puckbunnies if we happen to admire certain players and discuss it. That'll get you nowhere) freakindoublestandardblog


@chica, kapspar, hip if you are around, eileen, etc- go to Evgeni Malkin's Girlfriend and see the pic(s) posted there. I sent it to Staff in response to their request but they didn't want to post it cause it's a player's private life. In deference to Staff I won't post a direct link. *winkwink* BUT it explains why they traded Colby.

Pensblog Staff said...

haha thanks Sooska

Flyer Hater said...

I don't get why all the women here are upset, shouldn't you be in the kitchen or rubbing your man's feet instead of surfing the net?

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: Okay, okay. Everything seemed alright. *laughs*

@chica: Actually my school has blocked sites were there was historic paintings that had some nudity but not yet the blog. That being said, the computer guy at my school is gay and it takes him forever to go where he is needed to be so ... take that as what you want ...

Also, I have had pictures individually blocked at me school so I don't know how it exactly works where the retards control everything ... I guess, they were the children left behind before Kennedy and Bush decided to compromise on an education plan.

@letsgopsu: Agreed ... on that ... I love the episode when he's uncomfortable with Jordan and Dr. Cox so he blurts out stuff or his beginning problems with the Janitor. I still love their problems now but oh my goodness, that was flippin' hilarious.

Alright, I think we need a game or we are going to start getting into fights here ... I think we all need to listen to Hossa again and remember that Gildo didn't die in vain (whatever that supposedly means)... the real bad guys are the Red Wings now.

dying alive said...

Ugh. I didn't mean to take part in causing an uproar around here. Anyone who really knows me would know I'm the last person to advocate censorship and I do not have a double standard when it comes to men and women. TPB gets me through my day at work, and I don't want the site to end up blocked.

*shrug*
Whatever. I'll keep my opinions to myself from now on.

Pensgirl said...

Chica, as a specific rule it probably depends on the workplace, but in general it could be considered NSFW, yes.

Basically, the legal sexual harassment standard hinges on how a person reacts to something that is said, done, or shown, not how the sayer/doer/shower intends for it to be taken. So if you sit next to Polly Prude and you are displaying a picture of your family at the beach, she could cry foul and you'd have to take the picture down. On the other hand, if it's Polly Porn in that next cube, most likely she won't even notice.

The principle stemmed out of truly harassing things that were occurring in the workplace, but obviously it allows for an overly-sensitive person to run the show. (Doesn't matter male or female either - someone can claim sexual harassment against anybody. And you can even do it for something you weren't intended to be involved with, like overhearing a joke being told in someone else's office.)

I had a boss who said that during a sexual harassment training course for managers, they were told that complaints have been lodged over things like a woman shopping online during her lunch break at the Victoria's Secret website (and it was another woman who had complained in the example).

Basically, it's just a really tricky issue. Things that would never occur to you as being anything can come off to someone else as a big deal. And things that seem innocent enough can really be rather insidious.

Sooska said...

you are welcome Staff. ;) YOU didn't post it.

BlacknGold66 said...

Hahaha... yeah, that photo is nasty!

I love this blog and I of course love cblog...

I just don't want things to change.

@Dying Alive: For numourous reasons... mostly because if the picture that can be blocked at work is ANYWHERE on the site (whether it be in a link or not) it can still be found by the web administrator's therefore making the entire site "blocked." So to speak.

(btw, that Geno pic was taken directly from a 2007 photoshop expo on this site... so if you didn't get blocked then, then the picture with those girls probably wouldn't be blocked. Although I totally agree that someone seeing that over your shoulder at work would raise questions you don't want asked.)

TheNWChica said...

Thanks for the answers my friends. :)

threshhold9k said...

BlacknGold66 said...

@Dying Alive: If you start keeping your opinions to yourself I'll be very upset.

That's what's great about cblog. We can discuss these things without name-calling and the like.

Issue's solved.

Okay, is it over yet ... peeks through fingers covering face ... whoo, no more fighting! Yeah!

@Sooska: Yeah, I understand why Pensblog didn't post that and *laughs* probably clears some confusion up with the Army situation ... so Hossa was a gimmick? JK. Staal should stay away from the bottle ... Jk, as well.

@bng66: I'll start foodblog. I got some cookie dough ... triple chocolate and chocolate chunk. Yummm ... lecker

threshhold9k said...

Sorry about the .

When charlie is away the mice will play. If he is at home then you will damn well expect homoerotic photoshops of the other team.

I don't come here for pics of fine ladies. I come here to get pumped the f up about pens hockey. We can argue all we want about this. But Lord Gary has laid out one path before us. Destroy all those that who oppose.

What we do in our free time is not of this blog. If the ladies feel offended then we must bring them into consideration. This is pens hockey, stay the course.

Live by the sword......

Dan said...

why do you take that down? you guys may have just fallen down a notch or two in my book...........

hockeygirlsarethehottestblog

xocharmedchildox said...

The only reason i said something is because cblog is also a place where you can say your mind and not get yelled at for having an opinion. Thats one thing i really, really respect about people in cblog. I said i didnt like it, some didnt care. Whatev. But honestly, as ive said, this gives ppl the impression that this is what girl hockey fans are and thats why people think we are not "real fans".

But honestly guys, the STANLEY CUP FINALS START ON SATURDAY! Lets get excited at that and not upset. This is a hockey site and we should be gettin ridiculously excited for this series!

^-^
gooo pens!

Sooska said...

@bng-the Geno pic with Colby is a Pensblog PS?

@ dying alive-you have a legitimate point about looking at work (or school). debate is good. don't keep your opinions to yourself -you have every right to express them as does everyone here (except Wings fans.)

@ pensgirl - exactly. we just had a sexual harrassment seminar at work and it basically boils down to comfort. you have to be really sensitive to the level of discomfort that might be provoked by everything said or done. intent doesn't matter.

@Sooska: No, the photoshop of Geno from my 9:10 post.

letsgopsu said...

Hey, you got me earlier today. I'm sure I'll have a bad day or two when you'll be able to job me all day. Don't worry, it will come. I'm just on my game right now because I have nothing to do all day.

Pensgirl said...

If I may just harp on legalblog for a second, it's only censorship when the government is involved. The Chinese not being able to access the free and open internet is censorship. Asking a blogger to remove a picture is asking a blogger to remove a picture, and the blogger's acquiescence or lack thereof is their own choice in the matter. Even if Google FORCED the staff to remove a picture, it would simply be a private company exercising its rights to control what is stored on its servers.

I know, I'm a geek. But it's just a really common misconception that all content control/restriction is censoring.

Stoosh said...

Benz always seemed to me to be the type of guy who would join you and your new girlfriend for drinks at a bar, and then talk shit about you to her and try to pick her up when you leave to go get her another drink or something.

Even better are the times he has an attractive female guest in studio and he goes into full-fledged "too cool radio guy" mode and practically tries to pick her up. One girl asked him where he went to college and he responded in as snooty a tone as he could muster, "I went to Syracuse. It's pretty much the Harvard of broadcasting schools."

It was like listening to Bad Pickup Lines, Vol. 1 live on the air. Needless to say, I don't think she was impressed.

@ stoosh -your description sounds oddly like the Sean Avery stealing his roommate's GF-I think that was Elisha Cuthbert after Rachel Hunter had kicked him out (or the other way around.) Tim Benz = Sean Avery?

BlacknGold66 said...

Agreed.

Pensblog is made of win, indeed.


@Pensgirl: Thanks for clearing up the legal mumbo jumbo.

Carroll said...

Memorial cup: Kitener 3- Bellville 3. Now in OT, this is the third game this tournament to go into overtime.

Pic - was offensive, thanks for removing staff.

BNG66 - your pic @9:10 had me more concerned that you ran and took a pic of yourself and then did a photoshop just to prove a point.
Glad to know that you just took it from a previous PS expo.

Pensgirl said...

Staff, you didn't fail.

Obviously just the fact that you talked about it means you understand your overall readership - that people are generally pretty OK with whatever around here but that many of we female fans are off-put by the behavior those women were engaged in, not because we're prudish, but because it's an image of women hockey fans that we have to fight against as fans of the sport.

You posted the picture with the disclaimer and with humor, and then you did what you thought was prudent in light of the objections that were raised. The discussion on cblog has valid points on both sides. I don't think there's a bad decision here - people are going to disagree, that's just life.

The NSFW thing is a head-scratcher. That picture could end up getting the site blocked at someone's home or school, but yeah so could others that you've posted. There's probably not much advance prep you can do to prevent that from happening along the way, unless you fundamentally changed the blog and I don't think anybody wants that.

I think, if I might speak on behalf of the female group here for a sec, that what really matters is that you acknowledge us as genuine fans and don't write us off as the kind of females shown in that picture. That's a big reason why we keep coming back.

Pensgirl said...

Also, that last paragraph goes for the male cbloggers as well.

Sooska said...

tpb Staff- you handled that post with aplomb, if not grace and dignity. (oh rats) we are all the better for it.

Joshua said...

@dying alive

Since when was the tPB safe for work? Surly Charlie isn't safe for work. If you are worried about getting in trouble with your boss you shouldn't be viewing it on company time.

By viewing that pic one can expect one of three reactions:
1) Freaking puckbunnies
2) Haha, nice
3) whatever

Just move on from it. This blog offends people from time to time...which is why I love reading it!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Now, Im really hungry ...must find food ... well, looks like I have to settle for Nip Cheese crackers ... blah ...

@letsgopsu: I'll keep my eyes open ...

Pensblog = my fav. site to go to ... you are winners!

wilsmith said...

by the way, was that really a picture of Benz?

that explains so much.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@stoosh

many moons ago, that happened to me at the Hard Rock Cafe at the Toronto Skydome...is Tim Benz Canadian?

@carroll

thanks for the update
AND tPB main page update
[note to self: don't hit F5 on tPB main page]

would it be offensive if I made that pic my profile pic????

-just askin'

Pensgirl said...

No prob, BNG. Just consider me Cblog General Counsel.

Posting a legalblog item always reminds me that I actually got something for those 30 years of monthly deposits to Sallie Mae that I'm making. ;)

Dr. Turkleton said...

mine was Benz.

BNG66 is Jeff 'Skippy' Reed with Geno's PS'ed head [the one on top of his shoulders]

We need to end foodblog for the night. My parents went food shopping tonight, and I don't think they'd be so pleased if they woke up in the morning and found out they need to go shopping again tomorrow night.

[/exaggerationblog]

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: I now have crackers and water everywhere near my computer thanks to your last comment. I hope my computer doesn't break down because of you!

fatasssupperblog: Italian Wedding soup, a sammich with hummus and sliced chicken, baby carrots and blue corn chips with dip.

Carroll said...

dr t: Belleville just won. Next game Friday 7pm.

wilsmith said...

I think removing the picture was kind of double-standardish.

everything on here is offensive.

wasn't there a post on here a while ago saying the responsibility is on the reader when it comes to blogs?

I can understand someone not liking it, but why can't someone just look past it like anything else?

Case in point, the Malkin and his dong picture. There was no uproar then.

wilsmith said...

hah yeah turk the one you posted is the one I meant.

photoshop is opening.

Sooska said...

@dr turk- that was skippy skeeve? OMG my eyes are self emolating!

Jacob said...

High five to anyone who can name person in the picture with Malkin's head on them in BNG66's 9:10 post.

Jacob said...

Nevermind, haha.

Joshua said...

willsmith nailed it:
"wasn't there a post on here a while ago saying the responsibility is on the reader when it comes to blogs?"

JYo said...

The other day when puckbunnyblog (j/k, calm down) was going on, (i.e. links to pics of Gino half naked, the boys playing keep up with lewd comments from the ladies, etc.), I had absolutely no interest in any of that crap, but instead of complaining about it here, I just ignored it. Not a big deal, just sayin'. Is there any real nudity in the picture in question at all? If you would get banned from a site for that, I hope you don't look at any swimsuit pictures there either, because this is no more revealing than those are. Again, I don't care if you like the picture or not, but its definitely doublestandardblog. I think its more of a people not liking the picture than it is NSFW given the content of this site. Again, I don't care that it was moved, I just figured I'd weigh in.

dhudzin said...

Can anyone link me to what all this controversy is over?

As far as Benz goes, tell me he doesn't look like Charlie in this picture: http://www.wxdx.com/cc-common/gallery/thumb.php?src=/export/home//cc-common/mlib/2094/05/121117386628.jpg&wmax=446&hmax=410&quality=90

Dr. Turkleton said...

here's the original:

Jeff 'Skippy' Reed

from a couple years ago....

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: Why was that picture so easy for you to find? (I'm assuming it is the one related to the Malkin photoshop because I don't wanna look ...) *laughs*

@wilsmith: I don't think I was reading the blog when that picture came up ... BTW who made that? who in their right mind made that photoshop? I definitely didn't want to see that ...

If yinz want the picture back, I think it would be better if it had the Charlie in the flashblog kinda deal ... you know like an Easter egg (which is appropriate with puck bunny) going back with the whole work room deal and the fact other Penguins sites I used to go on in school were targeted (I think the gay computer guy might be from the Flyers nation.)

If the Staff wants to put the picture back up, I don't care enough to protest. Just let's move on from this discussion to anything else ... it's not worth being torn into a civil war over here about a picture.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

just type: Jeff Reed in google & about 1,000,005 photos come up...1,000,000 being that pic.

hahaha

I'm not lookin' too good tonight, am I?

JYo said...

I saw the pic, so no big deal on this one, but for future reference, where is this "sidebar"? I don't see a link to that picture in the list of links on the left. Is that the "sidebar"?

letsgopsu said...

@ Dr. T

You're looking very Charlie-esque tonight...

Chubs said...

Am I the only one consistently (and pleasantly) surprised at the female representation on cblog? Maybe its just that the names, in a lot of cases, are rather androgynous...or just a general lack of memory on my part.

lis said...

Is it Saturday yet?

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

hey...for doctor turk

Pimpin' ain't easy!

smitty said...

@ Pensgirl:

I've only been Pens blogging a short time. Hell, I've only owned a computer since march. I, in no ways think you,eileenover,sooska,IHK,nwchica or the other female bloggers, (sorry I can't remember eveyone's names), are anything like those two gutter dwellers in the pic.

Yinz guy's knowledge of the Pens & the sport of hockey in general, would make a lot of male fans look stupid, me included.

Not that my opinion means didily benz, but, that's my opinion.




@ BnG66:

I looked @ your 9:10 post & nowhere did I see Tim Benz!

Are you sure you linked the right picture?

eileenover said...

dr turk - did you notice your video had a half naked man in it. I think you are channeling Charlie this evening.

coffeytalk said...

man i missed the photo.

helpblog. i wanna see.

and doc turk-

OH SNAP on me!

Jawsh said...

So, I went to go see a flame war and a pensblog broke out..

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: You wouldn't be lying saying that ... *laughs* what is wrong with you? *laughs* You are gonna have some feminist screaming at you the way your going and Charlie is gonna come knocking at your door with a few of his buddies from Ottwawa ... *laughs*

Maybe it's the people you have been hanging out with recently

@smitty: It's in Dr. Turk's post

J.S. said...

HOSSA HOSSA HOSSA!!

add Rex as your friend, or at the very least, add Fiesta Mexicana as your myspace song.

As for everything that happened in the previous 159 comments....don't know, don't wanna know...moving forward. Go Pens!

letsgopsu said...

@ coffeytalk

Going back to batmanblog last night, I thoroughly enjoyed christmas with the joker. I should watch more animated batman. It's totally awesome.

Jawsh said...

This is detroit's doing...they are trying to weaken us by having us attack one another. What would President Thomas J. Whitmore say if he saw us like this?? Stand together men and women, we are pens fans, we are cblog!!

coffeytalk said...

nevermind. i found the pic.

looks like my typical goal celebration with my bff.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@letsgopsu

hey now!!!! Don't shoot the messenger!!!

have you ever seen this:

David Negreanu v. Gus Hansen

High Stakes Poker: Largest Pot Ever On The Show [I think close to 650k]

it's 7 minutes long....but worth it!, IMO.

batman: the animated series is the real deal.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was the best Batman film 'til Batman Begins happened.

it may be a kids show but it speaks the batman truth.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@jawsh: I always thought that was a cool name for the president ...

@coffeytalk & letsgopsu: I posted an Adam West batman clip in the last post if your interested ...

letsgopsu said...

I also think I know why I haven't found a way to hate the Red Wings yet. My favorite TV character always sports a Red Wings jersey.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@carroll

THAT'S DR. TURK !!!!!!!!!!!!!

just like me, except: I'm NOT a doctor, NOT African-American, & I pimp with LESS clothes on!!!!!

+ I'd say he's only 1/3 naked since his trousers are pulled up past his belly button !!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Is it Saturday yet??????

coffeytalk said...

The thing is, psu Dr. Cox is from PITTSBURGH!

what the eeeeeeeef?!

letsgopsu said...

@ Dr. T

I'll check it out later tonight. I'm watching Gone in 60 Seconds right now.

I'll take a pic of that '67 Shelby Mustang GT 500 over those puckbunnies any day.

letsgopsu said...

@ coffeytalk

Yeah, I've noticed that before.

And Kelso is from Monroeville.

WesternPAScrubsblog

samsaidhey said...

Where in the sidebar

yes i know im dense

help please

Carroll said...

dr turk - I know that the character is dr. turk, I have seen Scrubs before.

It just didn't seem right to say dr turk you're partially naked in your clip after I already mentioned I was concerned that BNG66 took a pic of himself and did a quick photoshop.

dying alive said...

BTW, can anyone assist me with figuring out the ringtone situation?

Thx.

Jonny V said...

Aplomb is the Jarkko Ruutu of the English language

I've said on here before, but Tim Benz reminds me of Steve Polychronopolous. And look, in this pick he's taller than one of the girls! Our little guys growing so fast!

I swear if I ever see him in public i'm kicking him in the shins. Both of them.

That Malkin's gf site is chock full of awesome pics. Like the one where he's practicing in what looks like boxer briefs.

It's a boring wednesday night, I think a healthy puck bunny discussion is just what the doctor ordered. I don't watch MTV, VH-1, or E! (except for Talk Soup) because that's pretty much all you see on there. I remember when the Real World had somewhat real people on it. Now it's just hot people that get drunk and do each other. It's the staff's blogspot, and I feel they can put whatever they want on it. And all of you regular fairer-sex c-bloggers, you've more than demonstrated your knowledge of hockey is above average in every aspect. Just scroll past the stuff you don't like. I used to cringe every time there was a too many men on the ice penalty, because it always meant that there was bound to be a pic of two dudes kissing in the recap.

dhudzin said...

It's on the sidebar with the label 'Sex' under General NHL Blogs. Seen it already, didn't think it was a big deal, but can understand why some females here would be offended. Looks like everyone's moved on, though, so that's all I have to say on the subject.

Jonny V said...

samsaidhey:

ctrl+f, type in "sex" bingo u got it.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHKaspar

Risky Business!!!!

Just take those old records off the shelf.....

nice Bob Seger plug...esp. since we're coming up on almost time to turn....well, you know.

@letsgopsu

I just saw it for the 1st time last night....if you get the Game Show Network [GSN] it's on at 2am with I think this week started a new table with all those guys I mentioned last night.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@letsgopsu: Alright, come on, you are stealing my fav. Scrubs character from me after you kept jobbing away yesterday? No fair ... besides he wears a Chelios jersey. And Mustangs!!! Who are you?!?! *proceeds to look around room* You are creeping me out ...

@Dr. Turk: I think you are trying to dig yourself in a hole tonight ... or Therrien would say "It's a pathetic performance. phhh. I tink his goal is, uhh, to be the worst in the c-blog. I mean, he's soff. I've never seen a person soff like this."

samsaidhey said...

thanks

kinda seems like a letdown after all that was built up

I hate that yahoo fricking guy and mendes is irritating as all hell

letsgopsu said...

@ IHKaspar

I guess the only thing I can say is exactly what I said when I posted D*ck in a Box right before Dr. T did earlier in the week.

Great minds think alike.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@letsgopsu

that Mustang will work. did you see the pics over on my Facebook?...I'm not a big car guy...but those cars they had at Pebble Beach that day were unbefreakin'levible!!!!...& my wife didn't complain ONE BIT about walking around there taking pics & putting us about 3 hours behind schedule getting up to San Francisco.

letsgopsu said...

@ Dr. T

I don't think I've ever seen your facebook...

wilsmith said...

re: that photo of malkin on the ice with no pants

those short shorts he's wearing are hockey gear. so it's not like he's entirely out of uniform. At least he has his cup on.

Pensgirl said...

Oh, no Smitty, I didn't mean that anyone around here ever thought that about us. I just meant that pictures like that remind us of the stereotype we've had to fight against in general. But not here, certainly no. The guys who believe that stereotype are stupid, and none of you cblog boys have ever come across that way. Believe me, we would be able to tell. :)

Angelo said...

After missing the whole fiasco, I cannot see what the big deal is.

Charlie in a banana hammock or some side boob...I don't see much of a difference.

smitty said...

@ IHKasper:

The photo I was talking about is in BnG66's post, "THIS PICTURE" link

I Have Kasparaitis said...

ME = joke ... Smitty, sorry about that.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@jonny v

I ventured over there as well [did you see Letang's GF....WOW !!!!]

now I know where sooska gets all her profile pics on Geno...

@IHKaspar

wait...what?

digging a hole??? aww...c'mon...[/pouty lips + puppy dog eyes]

letsgopsu said...

@IHKaspar

I see I'm not the only one jobbing you lately. =P
