you can't be first twice, therefore you lose first privileges.

I claim first...and maybe third.

Anthony said...

Anthony said...

J.S. said...

LOL, I was just kidding.

brndlynn said...

J.S. said...

[/nancykerriganblog]

great_white_nwpa said...

i must've missed the orpik conversation..care to fill me in?

John said...

What is going on with that live blogging thing?

Pensblog Staff said...

we agree on the headache thing.
it will be slower-paced for the free agency thing with only relevant topics being discussed.

eileenover said...

I definitely couldn't keep up with the live chat.

sh0ez said...

@ eileen: No one lives near me and Michelle either. We're stuck in Cal.

Flyer Hater said...

Free Agency Blog=EPIC FAIL

I'm going back to watching online episodes of Charmed.

eileenover said...

@sh0ez

We should all move into some huge house haha.

FFBarton268 said...

Holycrapblog.

Also, thanks for the heads up. There needs to be some kinda notice when posts are..uh...posted.

LargeTurkey said...

What is going on with this liveblogging thing?

Dr. Turkleton said...

cblog >>>> livechatblog

Raybin said...

We should all move into some huge house haha.

The Real World: CBLog.

DO IT.

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - I visit friends in Cal from time to time, so you ain't so far out of touch.

@ Eileen - Would a giant cardboard box outside of the Igloo count?

Dr. Turkleton said...

that liveblog was almost like openmikenightblog

thank Gary I only caught it starting at 1100p

FFBarton268 said...

Good call Raybin. That's serious business.

sh0ez said...

@ barton: I have an RSS Alert that tells me when there's a new post. I just never see the alert. Hah.

@ eileen: Do it.

great_white_nwpa said...

buy orpik's free candy van when he leaves....rolling cblog real world

eileenover said...

@barton

As long as I can watch the Pens, I'm good.

stokes said...

Yeah, Eileen, you could play the buckets with the other bums outside the Igloo!

eileenover said...

Haha "This is the story of 7 strangers picked to live in Brooks Orpik's Free Candy Van."

brndlynn said...

@ great white: i thought i had read that Orpik was offered a contract but im not sure...
@ fh: i think we may need to stage an intervention. lol.
@ dr t: i agree. cblog>livechatblog
@ffbarton from last post: i may be able to join you guys. when were you getting together again?

great_white_nwpa said...

@ eileen

no doubt

eileenover said...

I love the bum that chants "Here we go homeless black dude!"

sh0ez said...

@ barton again: I changed it to where the new post will open up in a new tab instantly. Solid.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Eileen - We can always barcrash and watch the games. I don't think the box would have a electrical outlet for my HDTV.

@ sh0ez - I've never bothered to figure out RSS. Might be a sign of me getting older. I dunno. Do it.

@ Stocker - 730p on Thursday for Clarksblog.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Brandi - Beto's at 9p on Wednesday.

@ sh0ez - You must school me in the mystic arts of RSS.

Also, where do I put my application in for Real World: Free Candy?

sh0ez said...

@ barton: Do you use the new Firefox?

stokes said...

barton: thanks. that MAY just happen.

I am scared of RSS. i have no idea what the hell that is.


My STH buddy always tried to get me to drunkenly play the buckets with those dudes before or after games.

prozach said...

TUESDAY YET?!

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - Believe so, yes.

eileenover said...

Alright so who's buying me some drinks on the 4th? I better have a good time.

Colin said...

This is the story of 7 strangers picked to live in Brooks Orpik's Free Candy Van.

Hilarious!

FFBarton268 said...

@ Eileen - If you roll with us on Friday, you're taken care of. Don't worry about it. Barton = Clutch in those situations.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Wow, livechatblog needs to calm down ... way too many people ...

Can I just hang out with Free Candy anyways ... we don't need to boot him out, we can keep him there ... then again after I get all crazy talking to him he'll probably want to leave ... *laughs*

great_white_nwpa said...

to apply for real world: free candy, shouldn't part of the application be to lay down a check that makes the world stop?

Dr. Turkleton said...

watched [got forced by the wife] Juno which I legally [yeah, right] downloaded via some torrent for her instead of all the Rambo-ish movies I've legally [yeah, right] downloaded for myself...

actually, the flick wasn't that bad...the dialogue kinda reminded me of cblog

especially, when I heard the word: SHENANIGANS!

eileenover said...

Very good barton, very good. Eileen + alcohol = very entertaining. From what I've been told anyway.

smitty said...

Only relevant topics...

Guess that leaves Me & my new best friend Chase Sampstunned out

sirimanni said...

i missed the new cblog area and was in the stunned lounge

Silky Smooth said...

huselius and naslund

FFBarton268 said...

@ dt - Very entertaining movie, I must admit.

@ Eileen - That's when I'm at my very best.

@ nwpa - I've been known to throw some now and then, though mine's more about the low center of gravity rather than sheer mass.

brndlynn said...

@ ffbarton: wednesday will probably work. i'll let you know for sure.
eileen and barton: ideas for friday... station square is having some kind of live entertainment so there would be alot of people but not nearly as many as the point.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Stokes - It will be a good time. That's a gauruntee (cantspellblog for some reason). Never saw a bad Clarks show.

Colin said...

@ IHK -

Mr. Candy is a huge soccer fan. You will have plenty to talk about!

eileenover said...

Sounds like a plan Brandi. Is there somewhere we could meet, cuz I have a feeling I'll get lost trying to get to Station Square. Pittsburgh is a trip to maneuver through.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Brandi - the only problem with Station Square may be the obstructed view.

But who am I kidding, by that time I might not know which way is up to even look for the fireworks...

Lady Jaye said...

Heh, I missed pensblog while I was on vacation. Now it's going to take me another week to catch up ;)

eileenover said...

Oh and at least one more person must come. I hate threes.

great_white_nwpa said...

real world: free candy...spend 2 days rolling around philly passing out bone crushing checks to any found cryers fan...next stop, new york

fleuryous said...

ORPIK ISN'T LEAVING.


And I'm NOT in denial.


sdlflsdjkfjldksfljkdfljkfblog.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Colin: You think he would want to talk to me ... *laughs* He'd think I was insane ...

I have to head off ... I have a lot of stuff to do tom. like go to the dentist and senior pictures, so I'll see yinz afterwards!

Guten Nacht, C-blog!

Sabrejets said...

I was in the Stunned Lounge too, when the new post went up. Refreshin' the back page when everyone's on the front page!
me=stunned


Chase and Sandborn looked like Umberger when he got hit with that Mack Truck.

Chase=Stunned=Concussion

FFBarton268 said...

@ Eileen - A good place would probably be at the Crafton Kings off of 79 and 60. From there we can all just kinda shoot down 60 and to the sou'side 'n the Square.

brndlynn said...

@ eileen: shoez said he made be interested...
barton: i didnt think of that part. i guess it depends what part of station square we would be in.

stokes said...

Its been a long time since i've seen the Clarks. But they are entertaining. i'll talk to the Fiance and see whats up for
thursdayclarksshownoworkonfridayblog.


where at in McDonald?


Eileen, I've heard that if you can navigate Pgh, then you can drive anywhere....

eileenover said...

Ok. The only place in Pittsburgh I know how to get to is Mellon Arena. Other than that I'm clueless.

brndlynn said...

4thofjulyblog: im actually closer to the city than both of you i think. if we go to station square i would be taking the T.

eileenover said...

We could always go somewhere else to watch fireworks. We'll figure something out.

Colin said...

Correy Perry looks to be staying a Duck

FFBarton268 said...

@ Eileen, Brandi, et all - Crafton exit, rt 60 off I-79. I shall guide.

Everyone is invited, too. Maybe we can get in the parking garage right there in Station square at the top. Wouldn't be a bad vantage point...

@ Stokes - Right in the field behind the Giant Iggle. We'll discuss at Betoblog.

Colin said...

Colin can't spell Corey.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Brandi - Yes, you would be the closest, by my rough estimation.

Holycrapblog when did this thing get addicting? This may turn into a problem.

stokes said...

Barton's been bite by the bug. it happens to everyone, dude.

sh0ez said...

@ barton and anyone else who has Firefox 3:

Click here and install this add-on. You may need to click the blue bar at the top of the page to allow you to install it.

Restart Firefox as it asks you to.

When Firefox reopens, go to www.thepensblog.com, if you aren't already there. In the address bar, click the orange signal button. It will take you to a new page.

At the top of this new page, click the "Subscribe Now" button. You are now subscribed to the feed.

Now, go to Tools > Add-Ons.

Find LiveClick and click it. Then click "Options."

Basically everything here is your own preference. Here are my settings:

General: 1 minute and checkmark.
Menus: Open Loc, Open Loc in New Tab, Do Nothing, Bottom and only "Open Location" is checked.
Reading: Mark all, Mark all, Do Nothing, and Orange/Normal/Faded for both bottom sets.
Monitors: Autoload and The Pensblog checked. Alert - Open newest, check, Open location, check. Autoload - Open newest, check, Open location, check. Don't worry about Tag.


There ya go. Hopefully that all makes sense. Try it out. If you have any questions, just ask.

eileenover said...

@barton

There's a support group for those addicted to c-blog. Most of us belong to it.

fleuryous said...

I just keep hitting refresh...


Does anyone have faith that Orpik will stay?

I need some optimism here. haha

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - You, sir, are awesome. I will be sure to try that once things die down here.

Hello, my name's Bob, and I have a problem.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Fluery - Free Candy staying is all I have left to look forward to in the world.

eileenover said...

I think Orpik will stay.

sh0ez said...

I just ran nerdblog. Me and Stephen are pretty good at doing that, though he is far more superior than me.

@ brandi, eileen, etc: I don't think we will make it. I don't think I'll have the money for gas by then (I'm strapped bad) and I have work at 7am. Hah. Sorry!

brndlynn said...

@ fleury: i have faith. i also have alcohol so that may be impairing my judgement. i wont allow myself to believe that Orpik or Ruu are leaving.

@ barton: you're becoming a regular. pretty soon you'll start saying jobber and stunned in everyday speech.

sirimanni said...

in addition to RSS feeds and firefox, there is a cool little google app. for google homepages called google reader. for those of you who check multiple blogs it's nice that it will show you any new posts from the blogs you've told it to check (albeit a little delayed)

eileenover said...

It's ok sh0ez. Gas is ridiculous these days. We'll see you at Dark Knightblog anyway!

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - Apparently I do not have the latest FF. I need to upload that at somepoint in the very near future. Shame to hear you can't make it to fireworksblog.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Brandi - Truthbetold, I've been doing that for months. I've been a lurker for a while now, but am finally jumping on the bandwagon.

Also Ruu/Free Candy '08. Do it.

sh0ez said...

@ barton: There is one for Firefox 2, but I would just suggest getting Firefox 3. So worth it.

@ sirimanni: Yes, that too works well.

@ eileen: Are we making Dark Knightblog the replacement for Wingblog 2.0? I don't mean completely, I just mean the one that we talked about having in two weeks.

stokes said...

Brandi, it sounds like you're a drinker, I LIKE!

my personal uninformed guesses: Orpik 75-80% chance of staying. The Hoss 30-60%.

i dont know what those mean.

I'm going to bed now or else i may never get off of here.

Adios, Cblog.

sirimanni said...

correction, Google Reader can be used without having a google homepage for anyone that wants to check it oot (I was in toronto this weekend for a family reunion, apparently i have italian cousins there, but they really do oot/aboot/and especially eh? after about every spoken sentence..which i loved)

FFBarton268 said...

@ Stokes - Night, man.

@ Brandi - alcohol eases the pain of FA. Yessm.

@ sh0ez - I will!

eileenover said...

@sh0ez

I'd still be up for Wingblog 2.0, since not everyone is coming to Dark Knightblog. I'll probably request that day off anyway.

brndlynn said...

@barton: i did the same thing. superstition kept me from posting.
@stokes: fa specualation drove me to drink. lol.

eileenover said...

If there was something I liked in my house, I'd probably be drinking right now also. Sorry, I'm talking way too much.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Brandi - I've always been a drinker, can't deny it, but FA just amps up the quantities.

Also, Wingblog 2.0 = a must. Do it.

threshhold9k said...

@eileen "no one lives..."

didn't realize there was a new post. I live in Cranberry hence a wingblog there would be close for me.

Colin said...

Beverage of choice eileen?

sh0ez said...

When was Wingblog 2.0 planned for?

sirimanni said...

@stokes - those stats gave me a good chuckle, and are probably always right 99% of the time

@barton - i'm the same way, i usually read everything and am too lazy to type but just keep refreshing

FFBarton268 said...

Turn

FFBarton268 said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
sh0ez said...

I definitely can't do Cranberry. =[

FFBarton268 said...

@ siri - Kinda hard to get the whole refresh/type thing, but I think I'm getting used to it.

Time for drinkofchoiceblog?

sh0ez said...

Turning comes at 200, not 100! Ha ha.

fleuryous said...

Thank you for your assurance, guys. I can rest a little easier.


And I'm all about Ruu/Candy '08.

Night everyone, and let the games begin...

eileenover said...

Yes, someone lives near me!

@sh0ez

I believe it would be the 12th.

@Colin

Anything fruity really, but Raspberry Smirnoff is my favorite. I hate beer and wine.

threshhold9k said...

Drinking crown royale and ginger ale at the moment and one of my favorites either dry or mixed (ginger ale).

FFBarton268 said...

Barton = joke

Live and learn, right?

Raybin said...

Dammit, barton, I was about to hit you with the "you = joke" bit

And then self apply it and steal my thunder.

So I guess that means....

you = joke

(welcome!)

Colin said...

Crown Royal is made from the loins of the gods.

FFBarton268 said...

Wait...That thunder was mine! You can't joke me once I've joked myself?

Don't forget, I may be #22 in your programs, but I'm still #1 in your hearts.

Stoosh said...

Definitely still up for Wingblog 2.0 because I'm not sure what's up with DarkKnightblog. We're gonna try to make it to both.

And by the way, you wanna talk GameShowStunnedblog?

fleuryous said...

Oh, and

PS. It's all about the 40s. haha. Cheap and classy.

eileenover said...

Stoosh that picture makes me laugh every time. NOOOOOO!

stokes said...

12 hours bitches.

FFBarton268 said...

Give this cowboy a bottle of Bud and he's happy.

But a glass of Jack on the rocks is always a classy substitute.

Raybin said...

All thunder in the world is mine. I dole it out upon my whim.

Stoosh said...

Hey, when we're doing Pensblog Kennywoodblog, we need to make sure to invite this guy.

FFBarton268 said...

Didn't you go to bed, Stokes?

sh0ez said...

@ eileen: Are you making a Facebook eventblog for Wingblog 2.0?

coffeytalk said...

chiminginblog-

whats this about the clarks now?

i just hung with them 2 weekends ago at the home grown hoo-ha show. great guys.

sirimanni said...

thinking of ruutu makes me think of something. am i the only one that says "It might be Ruuuuuutuuuu" in reference to Dave Chappelle saying It might be Doo Doooo? for example at about 1:40 in this video/audio
ruuutuuu

eileenover said...

Do you think I should? I wasn't sure if I should without knowing if the staff for sure wants to do it on that day.

FFBarton268 said...

@ coffee - That was a great show. Was just saying that they are playing at McSummerfest in McDonald on Thursday.

sirimanni said...

i'm loving these star wars links, especially since episode 2 just ended on spike

sh0ez said...

Oh yeah. E-mail them about it? Is it gonna be Robinson again?

brndlynn said...

@ eileen: maybe make one like shoez did for Dark Knight and see who is interested.

eileenover said...

I'm not sure about the location. I'll just say it's pending for now.

FFBarton268 said...

I'm thinking the Primanti's on rt 60 is a fairly good central point for all involved north, south, and east.

Just my four cents.

coffeytalk said...

ffbarton-

ah that's right. i remember scott mentioning that before their set.

that's a bit of a drive for me.

Carroll said...

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!!!

less then 12 hours....

sh0ez said...

Me and Michelle could only do Robinson or C3. Hah. If more people can do Cranberry, though, then do it there. With Dark Knightblog a week later, I definitely can't do Cranberry.

FFBarton268 said...

@ Coffee - it's right down the road from Starlake, or whatever they call that now.

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - the Primanti's might actually be a few miles closer than Robinson for you, if you're coming up 79. And way closer if on 51 for that matter.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Pilot Episode of Scrubs™ on WPGH....

ahhh....memoriesblog

eileenover said...

Screw it, I'm saying Robinson for now. We can discuss the location later.

sh0ez said...

@ barton: Is that the one near Robinson? If so, we could do that. That is, if we are talking about a location for the next get together. Pretty much anywhere Robinson and closer. 50 mile range essentially.

Nascent said...

Free Agency + The Company Band's New EP = Happy Happy CK

FFBarton268 said...

Atta girl. We've got plenty of time.

brndlynn said...

im watching scrubs as well Dr T.

"Well Tiger, I gave her an answer during rounds and she screwed my brains out."
"You're the man!"

FFBarton268 said...

and @ sh0ez - Yes. 60 runs into Robinson and I'm fairly sure that location is technically the 'Robinson Primanti Bros'.

sh0ez said...

@ barton: Yeah, it would be a little closer. We do 79. 51 is kind of going a little out of the way and much slower.

coffeytalk said...

ffbarton-

yea i know. that's still like a good hour drive for me. ah well. i see those guys all the time so no worries.

FFBarton268 said...

@ sh0ez - Then yeah. Just take 79 to the exit just past the 279 (pittsburgh/airport exit). It'll say crafton or 60 or some combination of. Right off the ramp and you'll run into it eventually. Nice place.

FFBarton268 said...

Lucky you, coffee. I've been a huge fan for ever.

Dr. Turkleton said...

brndlynn...

hahaha...

this was supposed to be the only episode for Janitor...but they kept him in. [Neil Flynn aka Janitor, actually auditioned for Dr. Cox's role]

trivablog you may already know...

ff....

like all your suggestions for grub on this side of town!!!!

I could probably be at Beto's 2 minutes after hitting [ENTER]


[Caputi]

FFBarton268 said...

Ah well. Things seem to be slowing down so I'm gonna take this time to try and slip away to sleep. 5am sucks.

Dr. Turkleton said...

coffeytalk = groupie

akus said...

butterflies/nervousness/excitement...........i just wish it would get here, so it can be done, sHERO.



How will i spend my hours up until 12 am.
Reading tPB of course and eating Tabasco(my own personal "Fiesta") flavored Vlasic's. mmmmmmm!! Damn them baby's get some zing to them.

Dial up sucks

FFBarton268 said...

@ dt - What can I say. I like food, hence, I have good taste. And if you can be there so quick, Wednesday, do it.

coffeytalk said...

they're a great band. it was fun chasin' scott's little girl sofia around backstage. eventually she ended playing drums with dave during "on saturday" that was hilarious. i had to cover my mouth from laughing so hard so i wouldn't get picked up on their mics.

brndlynn said...

@ dr t: i did not know that. thats awesome.

Raybin said...

coffeytalk = groupie

doc turkleton = jealous

coffeytalk said...

eh hem dr. t, we prefer to be called band aides these days.

ha.

FFBarton268 said...

Night.

Dr. Turkleton said...

I just might go ahead and pop in for a golden ticket.

sh0ez said...

I cheated and requested invitation to Wingblog 2.0 before being invited. Hah.

Dr. Turkleton said...

raybin...

bustin' my chops! hahaha [/borrowing coffeys line]

band aides? = ouchy! [AND I LIKE IT!]

eileenover said...

I confirmed you haha. I'm sending invites as we speak.

Colin said...

colin = uber jealous of coffeytalk

Raybin said...

Gotta keep the skills sharp, doc t. You know I love you more than most. Or many anyway.

Band aide blog:
Coffeytalk > Kate Hudson

coffeytalk said...

yay eileen! you deserve a medal of wingdom!

coffeytalk said...

penny lane's got nothin' on me.

coffeytalk said...

I'm not like bff's with the clarks or anything. i was backstage due to my buddy eric that plays bass for The Gathering Field. Bill Deasy and Rob James come and play my improv show every now and again. I shot a music video with The Clarks (i ended up being in it for like 5 seconds after an entire day of shooting) We just happen to bump into eachother more often than not.

brndlynn said...

@ dr t: isnt this 1 of 2 episodes where Cox actually refers to him as JD and not a random girls name?

eileenover said...

Thanks coffey! Invites have been sent! If you didn't get one, it's because you don't live here or we aren't friends on Facebook.

Raybin said...

The Clarks > Black Crowes

Though I am biased toward them since they're IUP grads. I'm soffer than Ladislav Nagy dried with Snuggle toward anyone associated with the ol' hometown.

Raybin said...

Also:

Sleep > Me

G'night all.

happy birthday letsgopsu.

He probably won't see this now that he's a working man but just incase.

coffeytalk said...

scott has only been married once. wife's name is denise if that rings any bells.

coffeytalk said...

woops. stoosh deleted his post.

sirimanni said...

i requested to be invited to wingblog, but then realized that is when penn states arts fest is, which i already agreed to destroy my liver at.

eileenover said...

I'll confirm you anyway, just in case.

Stoosh said...

@ Coffeytalk

I'm retyping this because I realized afterwards I completely f'd up the way I explained it the first time...

BrusheswithClarksblog...

WHen I played hockey in college (1997-98), I believe Scott was married to the sister of one of the guys on our team. I forget her name, but I don't believe they're married anymore.

They also played W&J during my senior year in a concert sponsored by the college radio station, of which I was a part. So we basically helped put on the show and then got to meet the band afterwards...they couldn't have possibly been nicer guys. Rob in particular was cooler than hell. My only regret was that I was just starting to get into their music at the time, so I didn't appreciate it as much as I would've had I seen them a few years later.

sirimanni said...

i greatly appreciate it, perhaps the next one

ceby22 said...

HAPPY JULY 1 PEOPLES!

LET THE $$$, CRACK, AND GOOD TIMES ROLL!

coffeytalk said...

Rob is the nicest. He is probably one of the most talented guitar players i've ever seen. He will throw down his strings anytime and for anyone.

coffeytalk said...

alright i'm out.

kiss kiss bang bang is on and i should also try this whole sleep thing.

night-o!

Dr. Turkleton said...

raybin...

I hear ya holmes! :Þ

Kat said...

Whoops. There's a new post..color me late.

Intervention is DEPRESSING.

J.S. said...

I think I'm heading to bed. No page turning for me tonight. Gotta be up at 445.

Unfortunately, this is the song that'll be stuck in my head, which would explain my facebook status.

[j.s.: **i move away from the c-blog to sleep]

Dr. Turkleton said...

brndlynn...

I think you're right on that JD-Dr. Cox thingy....

I don't know what it is about Scrubs™...but I never grow tired of watching...
I used to be that way with watching King of Queens™ [anytime on TV + DVD's]...but that train has left the station...

anything good on TVblog?

I have on Mr. Mom on PLEX [ch. 149 on my Comcast] I don't have HBO, so PLEX & Fox Movie Channel will have to do.{I think both came on when I signed up to get NHLNet}]

cblogs hip = episode 1's Elliott Reid

Dr. Turkleton said...

j.s.

hahaha...chocolate rainblog!

that just reminded me of this clip [it's at the very end] + with all the Billy Mays talk today....

eileenover said...

I'm watching Unwrapped.

Stoosh said...

Heading to bed as well, folks.

Fun commences in about eleven hours.

Hossa
Orpik
Ruutu
Naslund

Do it.

brndlynn said...

@ dr t: scrubs is the same way with me. im running nostalgiablog and watching Sportsbeat - Badger Bob right now. I never tire of those either.

Well I am off to bed as well. I will be in full gametime superstition mode tomorrow for FA. have a good night everyone!

penstone410 said...

i've been away from my comp all day (funerals suck..)

saw a mention of crown royal earlier tho..

we toasted my grandfather tonight by downing shots of crown royal from fricking 1965 that we found at my grandparents house the other day..

im surprised i can even type right now (that CR was STRONG)

going to bed people..
it took me 2.5 hours to attempt to catch up on cblog (jeez!) and im too wiped to stay and chat..

11 hours and coutning!!!!

eileenover said...

I'm going to sleep as well. Goodnight.

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

Wow, late to the party...

Raybin, I'm an IUP alum too, I think the best Clarks show I saw was when the played Culpeppers, I miss college...

Eileen and all others down for Independencedayblog, what friends I have left in the area are doing family things (sucks being the only one not married), I'd love to hit the 'Burgh with yinz.

Badger Bob = FTW!

damn!!!!...it's over...I attended that game when they honored Badger Bob passing away...they gave out boxes of battery operated 'candles' [it's at my parents house somewhere]

I cried like a baby.

Who's to say how many more Cups that group could have won with Badger Bob at the helm.

@ dr t: i remember watching that game and seeing the players cry. i was still pretty young and hockey-naive but even i could tell it was the end of an era that never really got started.

I realize I'm mostly a lurker here, but I wanted to share some amusement. I've got a billion VHS tapes that I don't have labeled, because I am the least organized person of all time.

Anyway, so going through these tapes, figuring what I want to salvage, and what I want to tape over (VHS recordings, the DVR of 1985.), and I found one full of old snippets of Pittsburgh Sports Tonight from early in the 2001-2002 season.

Clips of Toby Petersen's hat trick against Ottawa. Stories about Mario's hip flexor. Stories about Kovalev's bum knee. About how the team would struggle after Jagr being traded.

Stephane Richer. I forgot that guy even existed.
Billy freaking Tibbetts.
Janne Laukkanen.
Ian Moran.
Mike Wilson.

We've come a long, long way.
