Behind Enemy Lines

For the rest of our lives we will always be able to talk about "where we were," when Sykora stunned the world.

For those of us in our own homes, at the Mellon Arena, or anywhere else.
This mornings amazing finish took us to levels only sports can bring us.

Games like this can make you want start smoking again.
Maybe even develop some type of drug habit.

And thats why the following must be seen.

13 year-old [Big K] was in the JLA last night. And wise beyond his years he captured every heartbreaking, gut wrenching play for us.

His story must be shared, and appreciated.
Just a stunning video.




It is safe to say that at about the 4:48 mark, that was the same look we all had.

Unreal.


Go Pens.

HAHAHAHA "Gotta' have something to wipe your ass with."

I was going undercover. I'm pretty stealthy you know.

The Seeker said...

Great stuff The Big K.

Your Dad is hossam to take you guys to Detroit.

Thanks for the great Secret Agent stuff behind enemy lines.

The Big K said...

Hockey is first on PTI. WTF?

eileenover said...

the big k = clutch

The Seeker said...

cblogger help please...

A good friend from Montreal wants to fly down to Da Burgh for Game 6 and called me to ask how much scalper here are asking for tickets (lowest).

I really had no idea what they're wanting for legitimate tickets.

Anyone able to help out?

Joose said...

Seeker, does your friend have a testicle he's willing to give up? I'd imagine it's going to be ridiculous no matter where the ticket is purchased.

slush said...

killer job the big k. priceless.

The Seeker said...

Perhaps craigslist or eBay would be better?

The Big K said...

seeker-

If you wait till gametime, maybe looking at 140$ is my guess, but i'm no finance expert.

Did yinz see the messed-up graphic under Petr Sykora on ESPN:

Chubs said...

@seeker

So he's HCPS now? I knew the line changes were drastic, but wow...


(I'm HIL-arious)

dying alive said...

seeker - If he wants to make sure it's 100% legit, I'd go Pens Ticket Exchange. He's going to pay more probably, but there's something to be said for knowing that you're not getting a fake ticket from some ass on eBay. Just as a point of comparison, though, a co-worker sold her pair of tickets for $2500 today on craigslist (section C, that row of seats with the TVs).

If he's willing to take more of a risk, the cheapest option would be a scalper outside the arena right before game time.

dying alive said...

And great job, Big K. Did someone turn around and call you an asshole at the end there? Ha.

i didn't see any scalpers selling tickets saturday.... in fact, scalpers were ASKING for tickets.

Stilly said...

ROFL.

I'm watching sportscenter, and I heard this..

Yankees starter Jobber Chamberlain. The anchor actually said Jobber instead of Joba... I love thePensblog.

KTLA said...

The Big K = Fandom gold.

Good job dude, especially w/ "Gotta have something to wipe your ass with." We salute you.

Eric K said...

"here's a Red Wings towel, because, you gotta have somethin to wipe your ass with"

classic stuff big man.

Sykie > Ruth

Go Pens

Sooska said...

Games like this can make you want start smoking again. WORD

It also makes you start making vows to God, Jesus and Mary.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Big K, you have grandchildren?

Good work, my friend!

:)

GREAT film from behind enemy lines - you'd make a fine Navy SEAL!

Christina said...

Big K, excellent work. must have been incredible to be there.

Sooska said...

Big K- The new Michael Moore of stealth documentaries?

Dr. Turkleton said...

big K

Great Job Jobbing Jobbers at the Joe.

I like how your Dad says after the Pens start celebrating:

"OK now, listen to me for a second...we're gonna go quiet [sound cuts out]"

Benjamin said...

"detroit wed wings towels, cause you gotta have something to wipe your ass with"

that is one classic mofo line. brining the pain, man, beautiful.

great stuff big k, that amongst the rest is kicking ass well beyond your years, well done sir!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I'm so bored right now ... can't the Pens play now? They can't be that tired ... *smiles*

@BigK: Nice video! Oh, but you brought some jobber to my page on youtube ... I guess he got mad because I corrected his spelling of Pittsburgh ... If your going to job me do it right ... what a joke. Why do all those people who comment on your page actually think you care?

@Dr. Turk: Did you enjoy your appletini I sent you?

Katie said...

@seeker -- to back up racheleyos, even the scalpers are hurting for tickets, and there were three busted for selling counterfeits during game three. The safest bet is for your friend to use TicketExchange, eBay or StubHub. A friend of mine used StudHub for game 3 and simply had to go to the Marriott to pick them up. If your friend's going to invest the money on a flight, the last thing you want is to scammed with a fake ticket.

Jimmy Hugs said...

Awesome vid, the big k. You started out as a teenager, but you left as a slightly older teenager.

I envy you for being there.

big k = clutch

Skizzler said...

Big K rules.

@joose: agreed, "gotta have something to wipe your ass with" cracked me the fuck up.

Sooska said...

"I'm not meant to take this kind of stress." Big K

I can safely say all cbloggers are as one with you in that statement.

Steve In Denver said...

Way to go Big K. Your dad is a beast for getting you guys to the Joe.

2nd favorite line - I'm not meant to take this kinda stress - or something like that.

TAL-BOT baby!!!

Steve In Denver said...

And naturally I type the same frigging thing that Sooska submitted almost simultaneously.

Oooh...I think it's time to listen to Chef sing "simultaneous".

Colin said...

I have used StubHub before, albeit for a different sporting event, and it was an awesome experience.

Dr. Turkleton said...

@IHK

appletini?...what, where????

I got a high-five, but no drinky [and I'm thirsty, too!!!]

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Dr. Turk: I sent you one the other day ... I'll send you another one, though ...

Party of Ruutu said...

Great video Big K. Thanks for sharing.

Sooska said...

@steve in denver - that's a simulpost! *high five*

Zarley Zalapski Blues Explosion said...

Fact: The Big K outdrank every Red Wings fan in his section.

@ the big k -

You made Puck Daddy's blog over at Yahoo.com in case you didn't know.

Pensgirl said...

Pittgirl linked this video over at The Burgh Blog. If you're anything like me, you'll tear up and giggle like a five year old at 0:35...and then keep doing it.

The Big K said...

Hehe he told me to be quiet cause it's Murder City, USA, and there were pissed off Detroitities.

But they were stunned, so no prob.

Eric K said...

Just a steel town team
Playin' on a rink of dreams
They took a midnight plane, goin' to the 'Burgh

An octopus murdering-boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight plane, goin' to the 'Burgh

A goalie in a smoky room
The smell of Smurfs, the small blue cartoons
For a while, we can hit the pipes
But the goal light goes on, and on, and on, and on

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin' Pittsburgh people

Crosby, Hossa, skatin' 'cross the blue-line
Their slap shots, howlin' in the night
Pittsburgh people, cheering just to find emotion
You know your Pens are gonna win the fight

Working hard, on the penalty kill Y'know Fleury's sure to thrill Paying anything to lift the Cup
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
At least we're not cheering for the Blues
Oh the series has yet to end
It goes on, and on, and on, and on

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin' Pittsburgh people

LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS

lets get fuckin pumped up and eat us some sum-bitchin WINGS.

LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS

Stoosh said...

@ Pensgirl -

I think I know what I'm going to be watching most of the rest of the night.

Thank you so much for linking that.

The Big K said...

HEY ALL AGAIN!
BIG K IS ON THE NEWS TONIGHT!
TALKING ABOUT THE PENS ON KDKA AT 11!
Check it out at 11. I'm so pumped I just heard.
They interviewed me about the craze of hockey.

Ryan V said...

I was sober for the first three periods. took shots before the first OT (it is a goodluck routine - shot before OT or a Shootout, the cheaper the better) Continued to take shots and ended up finishing 8 beers during the 3OTs. Amazing moment and it was awesome to see Big K's viewpoint!

Lets GO PENS!

@BigK: Someone's Mr. Popular over here ... If I'm not able to catch it (meaning: if my family decides to job me ...) put it on your blog ...

Does your dad know his son is an internet phenomenon?

Sooska said...

@pensgirl- That video is great.

Stoosh said...

Big K,

I dub thee the C-blog version of Sidney Crosby during his days at Shattuck St. Mary's.

Central Scouting says...

Franchise-quality jobber. Unlimited potential. Exhibits poise well beyond his years. Stands up to older competition, as proven in video at Game Five of Stanley Cup Finals. Extremely versatile. For as well as he jobs with comments, he is equally adept at managing a camera. Does not get intimidated in enemy territory. Jobs equally well on home ice and away ice. Improvises well on the fly.

Pensgirl said...

Stoosh, Sooska, I'm glad you enjoyed that as much as I did. I'm grateful that Pittgirl linked it.

Ryan, your avatar is fantastic.

The Big K said...

puck daddy that's a big deal i guess?

Check it out big k

Colin said...

blast! sooska beat me!

The Big K said...

I don't know how to Kaspar.
But if anyone is up for recording the KDKA @11 for Youtube, it would be appreciated, but no biggie otherwise.

The Big K said...

Colin-
Who'd of thunk somebody would give that much of a shit about what a kid had to say? Me=stunned.

Sooska said...

big k - I am betting that KDKA will have the interview on their web site tomorrow.

Colin said...

the big k = big deal

The Big K said...

Stoosh that is humbling.
Do I soon become the Oceanic Sidney Crosby?

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Ight, I just check KDKA.com if I can't see it ... the way things are going in my house, My Cousin Vinny will be playing soon ...

The Big K said...

Nu-
My crying is in the past. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

yermammy3 said...

@ stoosh the dickbag

and yet you keep responding to my experiment.

shock - the chicken pecks.
shock - the chicken pecks.
shock - the chicken pecks.

you are very dumb. you keep taking the hook. dolt. moron. goofus.

let me ask you a question? how does it feel to pace your day around a bunch of rich millionaire hockey players who don't give two shits about you?

what a pathetic piece of shit you are. why, they wouldn't have you in philly because you smell like your mother's taint, you silly bitch.

AHAHAHAHHAHAHHA.

Wings 5, Penguins 0

But my question is if you were within spitting distance of Barry Melrose, why didn't you? (j/k)

Is it okay to say that I broke out in tears at the crowd reaction when TAL-BOT scored?!?

I'm still emotional thinking about it.

mistyeyedblog

The Big K said...

Yermammy-
You do realize you can find Tampax at any 7-11 or Walgreen's in the country, right? It's OK, it doesn't have to be like this. There are some great support groups for abused women like you who have nowhere else to turn. Go get laid, you pathetic piece of feces.

Nobody fucks with the Stoosh. Nobody.

J.S. said...

and yermammy, I had no idea they allowed third graders to get that close to the internet without parental permission.

get lost

Kat said...

Big K- Solid video. Thanks for that.

I don't know it this was posted before, I was so out of it it was hard wading though 1,000's of comments on the c-blog last night:

10 Things You Didn't Know About Steve>

Good read. Talks about some of his weirder superstitions and how WWGRD is trying to get him to eat healthy.

Joose said...

MAMMY! I'm tellin' your mammy on you fer being so means!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Kat: "One of his nicknames in the dressing room is "Creature," a nod to his freakish lower body. It is huge. Gigantic. Hugantic." Should I have laughed here ... probably not. Inappropriate thinking ... very much so.

Chubs said...

I think its important to note that not only do the gameday posts have a deep farm system, cblog seems to have support for years.

Stoosh- I think "franchise-quality jobber" is one of my favorite phrases ever...its just fun to say.

Is it just me, or are the trolls getting dumber?

Zach said...

He doesn't know what he's talkin about joose. Everyone <3's you.

Kat said...

@ihk, I laughed too. It happens to the best of us. lol.

Stilly said...

I am Zach in the last post. Posted under another google account. Whoops.

The Big K said...

Chubs-
The trolls are getting dumber, yes.
Just like in Harry Potter.

Colin said...

@ kat -

Thanks for the link. Great read.

@ joose -

Just send 'em back to the cave like usual. No sweat.

Joose said...

Stilly, I was wondering "Who the fuck is Zach?" I'm bad with names, but not THAT bad. I thank you for your kind words.

Joose said...

Word, Colin.

Seriously, Mammy. It's time to get your cave on.

Chubs said...

big K-

I don't know what makes me more depressed- that a Harry Potter reference was dropped, or that I completely understood.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Kat: That was an awesome read ... too bad I ruined it w/ my impure thoughts. *laughs*

The Big K said...

Chubs-
That is a verbal bitch slap to all of England.
But then again... *laughs evil laugh*

Joose said...

Obama has enough votes to secure the nomination!

(CNN projects) haha

Joose said...

Votes? Delegates.

Stilly said...

ROFL @ Three-Beard. That's my favorite Bing moniker up to this point.

BlacknGold66 said...

@Big K: I left you a comment on the previous thread not realizing that your video had it's own post.

I remember MONTHS ago saying that I wanted to adopt you. And many a cblogger wanted, and now wants to do the same.

Kudos to your Dad for taking you to that game.

Kudos to you my friend for having the forsight to record those final moments of the 3rd period. Unreal.

I'm 30 years old which is ancient to most kids your age... but when I heard you scream when Max scored I felt like I was 13 again.

THANK YOU for that. You captured what we all felt last night.

Well after Lange and Steigy and the gang have retired... and I'm an old man listening to my Pens... I'm going to be proud to be listening to you do the play-by-play on FSN Uber HD.

You walked into the Joe a boy...

...and out a man.

Thank you.

Stilly said...

@big K

Sweet video.

Sometimes Britain needs to be bitch slapped.

Dubs said...

Big K -

that was great ... you jobbed those dickweeds in Detoilet right out of the latrine they call an arena ... 'I'm not meant for this kind of stress ...' exactly!

what happened to Ozgoof last night? why couldn't he give interviews ... what a diving fairy.

Chubs said...

eh, England had it coming. Especially Rowling...cocky bitch.

Dan said...

yamammary - our players do actually care about us. it's been documented. who are you to question us when it seems you pace your day around doing nothing but mocking people on here? how is that welfare check treating you? or your stolen computer? how many times have you been to jail? 8, 9 times?

TheNWChica said...

Great video BigK! I hope you'll still talk to us now that you're a celebrity. ;D

Colin said...

@ joose -

I believe it is delegates?

TheNWChica said...

@kaspar: I have them too. The word badonkadonk comes to mind once in a while. ;9

Joose said...

Yeah, it's delegates. Notice the lack of a question mark after the word. I was questioning my stupidity for saying votes originally. ha

nu said...

K: I was only asking 'cause I cried. Sometimes tears are fun. ;)

Actual quote from Detroit paper during the third: You'd think this was a tie game in triple overtime the way my heart is beating right now. The anticipation is killing me and the clock can't run fast enough.

Gotta love that Elroy found a hole and refused to come out after the game. "After dropping Game 5, Osgood blows off media" They could've left the last two words off. I thought he didn't remember what he did during games afterwards?
Ty Conklin has bigger stones than you, you tool. Well, now everybody knows it.

wonder what voox is doing today, bitches?

CK said...

So is anyone jobbing the Wings at their hotel tonight?

TheNWChica said...

@kaspar: Well, that is my rated PG word.

Did you ever see the video of the optional practice from a few weeks ago and Steve was only wearing an Underarmour shirt and tights? I think the words Holy mother of God came out of my mouth. lol Oh, and Gronk isn't looking too bad in shorts either. :D

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@dan: Your jail comment reminded me of our old buddy House14 ... what happened to that guy?

@Joose: That's how the democratic party rolls ... (note that I should never say that again...)

@chica: I probably over-use that word ... my friends and I always sing the Trace Adkins song, so I usually say badonkadonk ... I guess I can't stop all the weird stuff from coming out of my mouth. Come on, it was pretty funny ...

BlacknGold66 said...

@Pensgirl: When was the last time I told you I loved you? I was indeed tearing up and giggling, and I don't care who knows.

I LOVE THIS TEAM!!!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@chica: I had to re-post because my comment deleted itself ... woo!!

He is built ... holy crap, his muscles are huge!

Kat said...

@chica, oh yes, I've seen the vid in question. :)

@nu, somehow I expect no less from Osdouche. FAIL!

TheNWChica said...

@kat and kaspar: I feel a little dirty sometimes...Gronk and Sid are the same age as my junior boys, who are also young enough to be my kids.

eileenover said...

@chica

Do you remember what practice it was? I must see that video.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@chica: I don't feel dirty because they are only a little older than me ... hehehe ... okay, now I feel a little dirty ...

Kat said...

@ihk and chica, I completely don't feel dirty. I'm only 2ish years older then Sid.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Sh0ez: Happy early B-day!! (tomorrow is your b-day, right?) I don't comment on c-blog on game days (superstition, don't mess w/ it) and I couldn't send you any virgin drinks because apparently I have been sending out too many drinks ... so anyways, Happy Birthday, dude and many more!

@Kat: I just sounded dirty there ... I am 3 yrs younger than Sid.

Kevin said...

Re: the pic at the top of the page.

The three people in the background look like they were just pulled out of Michelangelo's Last Judgment.

eileenover said...

I don't feel dirty at all. There's nothing wrong with admiring the amazing physique of a hockey player. It's just a bonus that comes with loving the game of hockey.

Colin said...

Okay, so I am bored and lurking cblog and want to join in the convo, but I don't really know how to fit in without commenting on someone in spandex and even though I have intense man crushes on most of them, that might pass the akward stage.

The Big K said...

BNG66 thanks dude. It was just awesome.

jefe said...

good commentary on the big k's part.

all i got is a blurry iceburgh.

TheNWChica said...

@eileen: Apr. 30 Optional Practice The whole video is good, but the first like 2 minutes and the locker room part is great. The only thing is that it always stops with a few minutes left and I'm not sure why.

@kat and kaspar: I'm only 3 years younger than Steve's dad...does that tell ya something? lol

eileenover said...

Thank you chica!

Dan said...

@ i have kasparitis - i'm not sure where he went. i remember him from when i first started checking out cblog. if i remember he may have posted during the philly series, maybe he was/is on vacation?

eileenover said...

I've seen that video before, but I watched it again of course. They sure are easy on the eyes. And I love MAF's socks.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@colin: We won't judge ... you can say you have a man crush on Sid or Talbot ... I'm not putting it past any guy ...

@jefe: Be careful ... he might still be a terrorist ... *smirks*

@dan: I'm betting jail the way he talked ... he scared me a bit but he seemed nice otherwise ...

nu said...

stupid, jinxing, but whatev.

7171 is significant for another reason. Not just Geno; not just Sykkie.

'71 is also the last (only?) time a team won the Cup after dropping the first two games on the road.

MAF showed that he can do a pretty damn fine Ken Dryden last night.

Colin said...

@ ihk -

Being a goalie I have a mega-uber man crush on Fleury. I could watch him play every day of my life. Sometimes when I go to games, I get caught watching him and not following the puck. Since we are all coming clean here, I have a special spot in my heart for the way Staal plays defense and I am obsessed with watching Letang skate. He is such a smooth, fluid skater.

Dan said...

@ i have kasparitis = i can see that. i mean, depending on your state of mind, it could be viewed as a vacation.

Pensgirl said...

Kat, thanks for linking that. I saw it up on TSCS the other day but the Citizen's site was not cooperating and I forgot to go back.

I'd actually heard the "Creature" thing, from a translation of Max's blog. But supposedly it was over how fast his ankle was healing. That Max, covering up the real story (not that you can cover up that *cough* story).

But this...this right here is why, on a team where every player deserves to be somebody's favorite, I (a person who never picks the obvious choice as a favorite) just have to love Sid most of all:

Sid does anything to win because he hates losing. At Sunday dinner at a friend's house, he lost a game of Bingo to the friend's nine year-old son. He instant reaction was to slam his fist on the board, sending tiny bingo markers flying in all directions.

He then blushed and laughed. But make no mistake, the reaction was genuine.


That is why there's a game 6...because a team is reflective of its captain, and our captain gets pissed when he loses a game of simple chance to a kid.

Kat said...

@chica, Whatever, he's legal...*laughs*

Good point about House14. Last time I remember hearing from him he said something bout concussions and tazers.

Joose said...

You swooning ladies sound like me after seeing Orpik shirtless after the game during an interview on FSN.

What a hunk. A hunk with humungous arms.

Ruutu is my crush, though. Is it weird that I find his bruises hot? Whatever.

I'm a fan of the guys who like to kick the shit out of other guys, I guess.

jefe said...

i hope iceburgh is in a terrorist plot to yank the fire alarms at the twings hotel.

'05 pic of flower kid eddieO.

Joose said...

Everybody is sitting at their computers looking up YouTube videos of Tiger Woods slamming home thrilling hole-in-ones while nobody is tuning in to the Stanley Cup Finals to watch nonstop action and heart-attack-inducing goals.

Yep.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

At least Lidstrom is a man on their team ... taking shots at another coach, cute Babcock ... at least HCMT complains and doesn't insult other coaches. He wasn't insulting you, jag-off.

@chica: He's mature he probably doesn't like to date women his age ... so ... *laughs*

@joose: Gotta love tough guys. I agree w/ you ... I think I love Bugsy even more than usual and half his face is swollen *smiles*

@colin: I tend to find Malone no matter where he is as well as Gonchar and Orpik. I don't have a crush persay on Gonchar, I just love how he plays. But I do have a crush on more than half the team right now after that performance ...

eileenover said...

On the Office Michael just got a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton jersey for his birthday. I love that show even more now.

Pensgirl said...

Thanks BNG! You know I love you too, that's what cblog is about.

snickerdoodles said...

@chica, kat, and kaspar...
Dont feel bad at all! I, too, admire the spandexed perfection that is Steve (don't you just love skaters butt?)and I am old enough to be his mom.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

The Penguins are oh so hot....like even if someone isn't hot, there is a flaw that is so attractive....droolblog..

but i don't know, i don't think any of them are as hot as BNG;)

hahaha

eileenover said...

@joose

I saw that Brooks interview and he is indeed a hunk. Ruutu strikes my fancy as well.

Colin said...

@ eileenover -

elieen - i was just gonna post that. i may have to add a "from dwight, #1" baby pens jersey to my closet.

BlacknGold66 said...

Can't beat a 30-year-old with a cane!


WOOOOOOOOOO!

Dan said...

my man crush is on sid. i'm not ashamed to say it either.

Kat said...

@joose, I missed the Orpik interview. I'm not sure I can get past the crazy eyes but The Shift completely won me over.

For me, looks wise, It will always be The Gronk. Good lord, I love Staals.
[/bunnyblog]

And whatever Tiger Woods, who the hell watches Golf!? Dick...

I'm out, gotta a late class, catch you all later.

Joose said...

I need advice, folks.

I have said 18 times that I'm going to the Mellon tomorrow, but I need advice as to what time I should arrive there. I heard the "lawn" was packed by 6 during the last game, and I'm sure it will be worse this time. Suggestions? Time isn't an issue here. I can leave work whenever I please.

Jonny V said...

I feel like i've been gone from this place for a week. I told everyone at work yesterday who asked (I was wearing a Penguin shirt) that we were going to win, and Fleury was going to have an epic game. I reasoned that Osgood already pitched two shutouts, and Flower is exponentially better than he is.

I got two hours of sleep last night after the game, I just laid there watching highlights of the game and the FSP locker room interviews. Last night was beyond words. Staff your post following the win summed it all up. fdgsdf indeed.

Big K, you have so much more to look forward to in life, but holy hell last night was a blessing for you. Make many copies of the video (don't want to lose it or have anything happen to it, memory cards are a mofo). And like BnG said, thank you for having the foresight to record all of that. You have the gift. And thank Gary your on our side.

Stoosh, that season epilogue (still asofyet uncomplete is going on the back of a t-shirt. Beatiful man.

I have drill this weekend. Something tells me i'm going to be a mess on sunday. I'll deal with the consequences...

Where is this Free Candy interview? I always thought it might be weird that I had a crush on a man who's nickname makes him sound like a pervert ... I need to see this ... goingtopenswebsiteblog

@kat: I'm probably going to get beat for this but Eric Staal is my fav. looks-wise ... Jordon is my favorite overall *smiles*

TheNWChica said...

@kaspar: Maybe, but it reminds me of the scene in When Harry Met Sally and Harry is talking about his new GF; and he asks her where she was when Kennedy was shot, and she answers him Ted Kennedy was shot? lol

and as much as I adore Steve, I have a very large soft spot for Maxie.

Jonny V said...

Big K with the sweaty, after-practice interview

Good job dude

eileenover said...

@Dan

I really want a Connor James jersey. My brother's name is Conor James. Unfortunately James is just his middle name. Nevertheless, he'll always have a special place in my heart.


I just saw you on the news big k!

wilsmith said...

K delivers.

TheNWChica said...

Oh, and my opinion of Tigerblog? Eldrick can blow me!

BlacknGold66 said...

@Kat: Two points for you for ending that with [/bunnyblog]! Haha! I "loled".

@Dan: He's gonna hate me for this... or not... but I sent cblogger Stokes a text about a month ago saying "Dude, I'm totally gay for Geno."

His response:

"I've been gay for Geno since December. It's ok bud."

CLASSIC! That shit never gets old to me.

@Rachele-Rachele: Like I said.. can't beat a 30-year old with a cane... but you're pretty hot yourself...





...just sayin' ;-)

Colin said...

Anyone got a link for the big k's national tv debut?

The Seeker said...

Way to go The Big K !!!

You looked kinda Gary Robertish.

Well....not really, but seriously who could?

Pensgirl said...

Chica I'm the same as you on Steve/Max...I think it's because they have the same drive and passion to play...which Sid augments with being a superstar in the traditional way, and Max augments with being a superstar in the "chicka-chicka-chee" (or whatever the hell) way.

Stoosh said...

Big K -

SUPERSTAR...(chicka chee chee)

Saw you on KDKA.

I didn't know you played. That's awesome!

Stay with it as long as you can. When I was your age (late 1980s) and growing up in Erie, hockey wasn't as big a deal as it is now...myself and most of my friends played football, basketball and soccer. Hockey was tough because it was so expensive and there weren't as many organizations out there willing to help foot the bill for the ice time and everything.

I wish now that I would've learned to play hockey when I was a kid, because I'm so far behind the eight ball when it comes to skating, it's ridiculous. I played for a couple of years in a rec league when I was in college. Myself and one of my friends are in the process of getting new gear and trying to get people together to play in a rec league (any c-bloggers who might be interested, I'll have more info soon).

The Seeker said...

@ colin

The Big K was just on KDKA 11:00 PM News.

No links yet.

The Big K = Big Deal

The Big K > Tiger Woods

TheNWChica said...

@pensgirl: I think of them as Steve is the guy you go with to a nice restaurant and then a play or movie; and Max is an evening with beers and wings and pool or bowling.

Both are great dates and lots of fun, just very different.

Stoosh said...

Big K -

By the way, if I remember correctly, Sid spent one year at Shattuck before getting to Rimouski and beginning his assault on the "Q".

So since you've spent 2007-08 as the C-blog's Shattuck version of Sid, when the 2008-09 season starts, you'll graduate to the Rimouski version.

BlacknGold66 said...

Hey...

Has anyone jobbed the Red Wings hotel tonight?

We're all awake.

We're all doing nothing but loving on the Pens players (Me = Totally gay for Adam Hall) and each other (me = totally hetero for Rachele-Rachele and Pensgirl)

Let's all take a moment to job.

"Our Father, who's name is Gary... let us job in thy name..."

(412) 562-1200

Colin said...

I am scouring kdka.com as we speak to see if I can find anything.

the big k - where do you play? Locally in the 'burgh?

BlacknGold66 said...

(I wish you could wink through the phone...)

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I have a crush on Max because he's funny and find of dorky ... you gotta love the funny guys ...

@chica: It won't matter he'll be young ... kind of reminds me of a Matthew McConaughey quote *laughs* Just don't play games w/ him ... he might get angry and storm off ... *laughs*

@bng66: Gotta respect the Hall love ... he seems like a sweetie and gives it all on the ice.

Joose said...

I'm searching for FREE CANDY. So far, no luck.

eileenover said...

I have Free Candy's interview on my DVR. I'll take a picture.

BlacknGold66 said...

@IHK: As far as looks go... Hall looks EXACTLY like my roommate in Japan in the Navy.

EXACTLY.

(big jaws and everything)

And one of my best friends looks like Free Candy.

I'm still looking for a friend that looks like one of the Delta Dental Pens Patrol girls. :-)

Jonny V said...

BnG, didn't read the last post, but how did your check up at the hospital go this morning? Did u blow up any blood pressure machines?

letsgopsu said...

@ IHKaspar

Don't job me because I am now a productive member of society who (unfortunately) cannot spend every single second of his life on c-blog.

Seriously.

Colin said...

big k interview

Still looking for video...

Joose said...

Eileen, I hate it on my DVR, too. haha

TheNWChica said...

Kaspar: I get older, they stay the same age!

And I would love to see a picture of FreeCandy sans a shirt.

xuscbausp said...

i have a huge man crush on max right now cause he saved our season (for now)

Joose said...

What the hell. I meant have, not hate. I'm still sleepy from last night's excitement.

Pensgirl said...

Chica, forget dates, I just love watching them play. OK don't forget dates, but in my head it goes like this: "Here are your skates, go play." What a perfect setup Nathalie had that the first time she saw Mario, she watched him play. Can you imagine...you know it was over for her before he was halfway into his first shift. And people thought he scored fast in the NHL.... ;)

BNG, Adam Hall is a great choice. But, well, frankly any of them are great choices. It's the best thing about this team, like I said somewhere up above there, every player deserves to be someone's favorite. Or crush or man-crush or "gay for" or "non-gay for" or whatever. Every single last one of 'em deserves it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I want to throw them a parade no matter what.

BlacknGold66 said...

@Jonny V: Before the nurse hooked me up to the machine I said this:

(while wearing my Pens shirt and hat none-the-less)

"Listen... I don't know if you follow hockey... but last night was the greatest game I've ever seen.

Dr. Namboodiri is going to be pissed at me because when you wrap that thing around my arm and start pumping the machine is going to go off the charts...

From 8:20pm until about five seconds ago (7am), my heart hasn't stopped going crazy.

I took my meds this morning... but don't be surprised if the reading is high."


Her response:

"Don't worry. My husband watched the whole thing. I'm not holding my breath on a good reading."


WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@letsgopsu: You, a productive member of society? You're kidding yourself ... you're just too lame not to post enough ... I on the other hand make room for my c-blog family ... (jk) Hey, I missed jobbing you ...

I'm watching a Malone inteview about young hockey playing ... His LeClair action figure is hidden behind his gear and I hear Talbot's laughter in the background ...

TheNWChica said...

Oh I just love to watch guys play too. That's why I'm a season ticket holder here for my WHL team. And it's nice to be able to say I knew Peter Mueller and Zach Hamill as juniors.

But the dates would be fun too. :)

Stoosh said...

Since were on mancrushblog, might as well throw in my two cents...

Colby Armstrong
USS Hal Gill
Gary Roberts
Max Talbot (who I become a bigger fan of every game)

Backinthedayblog...
Ron Francis
Bob Boughner
Johan Hedberg
Pavel Bure
Trevor Linden
Pat Lafontaine

Beav said...

i just have to say it... I fucking love this team

letsgopsu said...

@ IHKaspar

Well, last night was the first night I had time for anything other than sleeping or working, so I've made all the time I can without falling asleep in my car and dieing.

BTW, I have found people in real life to job on a daily basis, so I guess my need for you is diminishing...(jk)

debrisslide said...

Just got back from graduation. Getting pumped for tomorrow. Also, making the "17 BURIES IT" button a staple of my wardrobe.

Joose said...

I FOUND IT!


FREE CANDY for the ladies (and the dudes).

Beav said...

@ Stoosh

Glad to see a fellow Erie-ite(?) has a crush on Moose... Oh Hedburg, you complete me

letsgopsu said...

Mancrushblog

Max Talbot has been my man crush since halfway through last season. I swear I'm buying a Talbot sweater over the summer. End of story.

eileenover said...

FREE CANDY shirtless

again

DAMN.

BNG, your man-crush is in the background.

eileenover said...

Well I guess that was pointless.

Beav said...

@ eileen

I'd get in the van

Dr. Turkleton said...

mancrush = whitney

#19 in your program, #1 in your heart.

and I just got added to his facebook page at 4:07a this morning...

life = complete.
